New York NY: Pantheon Books, 1954. First Edition. Hardcover. Large Quartos (12 1/4 x 10 inches). Two Volumes, complete. Vol. I (Text): xx + 460pp, colour frontis; Vol. II (Plates): comprises a 16pp list of plates (booklet in printed brown wrappers) and 196 loose plates. Matching volumes bound with brown cloth spine over beige cloth boards, gilt titling to spines, gilt publisher's device on front covers. The two massive volumes housed in original sturdy clothbound slipcase bound in brown cloth matching spines of books, printed paper title label on front cover of slipcase. Volume II is housed in clamshell type portfolio, the exterior of which matches Volume I. From the editorial note: "This is the first of a series of publications on Egyptian religion which will include the complete photographic recording of hitherto unpublished royal tombs, important mythological papyri, and miscellaneous cosmological texts and symbolical representations. The series will include, where possible, the full translation of texts. The present work is devoted to the tomb of Ramesses VI, at Thebes, and is in two parts: a volume containing, in translation, and reconstructed in so far as possible, the texts inscribed on the walls and ceilings of the tomb, together with reconstructed diagrams of the representations, certain text collations, and additional plates of variants from other tombs; and a portfolio of collotype plates constituting a complete photographic recording of the tomb. The plates are loose-leaf, so that they may be studied in sequence along with the texts and diagrams. The study is based on the work of an expedition sponsored by the Bollingen Foundation during the period from October, 1949, to June, 1951. Some light overall shelfwear to both volumes, but both are solid, clean and unmarked. Both volumes still have the publisher's plain brown paper covers through which tidy squares have been excised to show the titles while books are on a shelf (this was presumably done by the publishers, as every set we've had has had the cuts like this). Cloth on spines a little faded at the "cut-outs", a hint of bruising to the corners, still the set is overall a tight, clean and probably unread and thus in VG+ condition: the dust jackets bascically complete but have numerous tears to them, especially around the cut-outs. The slipcase is a bit darkened and discoloured overall with a few snags to the cloth, but quite solid - thus near VG condition. NOTE: Large heavy set, will require additional shipping which will be quoted before shipping. Item #72124
