Up to Top of Page The following list of books is from my own library or from those purchased by other users of this web site. Some are available “new”, some are available “used”, and some are no longer available. When a book can be bought through Amazon, either new or used, I have included a link to the appropriate order page. Just so you will know… If you buy a “new” book immediately upon clicking on one of these links, or if you browse through Amazon and buy other books after having clicked through from this site, we receive a small commission. If you buy a used book we receive a very small commission.

But despite that, I have included all links that we could find, new or used, as I think building up a library of Egyptian books is a pleasure, and there are some great ones available on the used market.

Therefore, I wish you much joy in your search for additions to your own library.
