"The Epigraphic Survey, Reliefs and inscriptions at Luxor Temple, vol.1 The Festival Procession of Opet in the Colonnade Hall" (chicago, 1994)

I've searched my uni library, Egypt Exploration Society Library (shocked it wasnt there)...amazon, ebay etc

I REALLY need to look at some of the plates. I've been advised by Earl Ertman to look at some of the plates and I can't find the book Sad
So If anyone has access to it, please please PLEASE can you help me!?!?!

I don't have the boook, but have you tried the Oriental Institute archives?

Here's their electronic resources page:
http://oi.uchicago.edu/OI/OI_Electronic_Resources.html

You might be able to find some of the images among the online photographs. I have seen some of the images they have from the early expeditions to Egypt. (I couldn't find the ones your looking for but then again I only looked briefly)

Note that there is an entire page on the epigraphic surveys though:

I'm afraid the book price is rather steep: $350 Shocked

Sorry I can't be of more help Crying or Very sad

Hi, Ramesside_Queens! Very Happy

I've not read the book that you're looking for, but I know of a site that locates hard-to-find or out-of-print books free of charge, and they'll deliver to anywhere in the world. If you're outside the UK, though, you do have a small delvery fee to pay. If you ask them to locate the book, but decide that you no-longer want it, you don't have to accept it, so it doesn't hurt to try. Wink (I've used them numerous times before and they've always been really good).

Here's the link, if you are interested: Readerfind Booksearch
