Egyptian Grammar. Being an Introduction to the Study of Hieroglyphs.

London: Griffith Institute / Oxford University Press, 1973. Reprint of Revised Third Edition. Hardcover. Large Quarto (11 x 8 3/4 inches). xxxvi, 646pp. Original dark green cloth binding, gilt titling etc to spine. Frontis plate, grammatical and orthographic index, general index. Includes Egyptian-English and English-Egyptian vocabularies; hieroglyphic sign lists. First published in 1927, this is a reprint of the third edition, revised, which is considered the best edition as it included Gardiner's extensive revisions. The massive work is still the book for those serious in the study of the hieroglyphs and comprises thirty-three lessons which focus on the literary language of the ancient Egyptian Middle Kingdom. The author, Sir Alan Henderson Gardiner (1879 – 1963), is widely regarded as on of the greats of twentieth century Egyptology. This 1973 edition has a good, solid, fine cloth binding, that is considerably sturdier than some of the later reprints. A little light shelf-wear, tiny flaw in cloth of upper front joint (does not affect the solidity and is barely noticable). Light vertical crease down spine. Otherwise a tight, clean VG+ copy (lacks dust jacket). Large heavy book - shipping at cost. Item #69365
