You hopefully do not really expect there is a single catalog for all objects known to the world? Shocked There are many catalogues from museums around the world. Not to speak about articles about single groups of scarabs. A good start would be, I think ...

Richard H. Wilkinson : Egyptian scarabs. - [Shire Publications in Egyptology - 30]. - Buckinghamshire : Shire Publications, 2008. - 64 p.

Online ...

Kathlyn M. Cooney : Scarab. - In: UCLA. - 2008.


A little older, but online available ...

Isaac Myer: Scarabs - The history, manufacture and religious symbolism of the scarabaeus in ancient Egypt, Phoenicia, Sardinia, Etruria. Also remarks on the learning, philosophy, arts, ethics of the ancient Egyptians, Phoenicians, etc.. - Ithaca, New York : Cornell University Library, 1894.

Percy E. Newberry : Scarab-shaped seals. - 1907.


Also Online are ...

K.M. Cooney & J. Tyrrell :

Scarabs in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art / 1 - Distributed propaganda or intimate protection?. - In: PalArch's Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology - 4/1. - 2005. - ISSN : 1567-214X. - pp. 1 - 14.

Scarabs in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art/2 : Catalogue. - PalArch's Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology - 4/2. - 2005. - ISSN : 1567-214X. - pp. 15 - 98.

Daphna Ben-Tor : Can Scarabs Argue for the Origin of the Hyksos?. - In: Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections - JAEI - 1/1. - 2009. - ISSN : 1944-2815. - pp. 1 - 7.


For the former Soviet Union ...

Svetlana Hodjash : Ancient Egyptian Scarabs - A catalogue of seals and scarabs from museums in Russia, Ukraine, the Caucasus and the Baltic states. - Moskau : Vostochnaya Literatura, 1999. - ISBN : 5-02-018068-8. - 316 p.


Another example from dozens of other museum and thematic catalogs ...

Raphael Giveon : Egyptian Scarabs from Western Asia from the Collections of the British Museum. - [Orbis Biblicus et Orientalis - OBO - Series Archaeologica - 3]. - Freiburg (CH) : Universitätsverlag, 1985. - ISBN : 3-525-53653-4. - ISSN : 1015-1850. - 202 p.

Good purchase. I have it as i am interested in scarabs. To the point, very interesting book.

Newberrys work is good (see Lutz post) and also Petrie has some work online a goole search on "Petrie scarabs" should show these.

Good subject matter - i hope you enjoy the Wilkinson book, as i have done.

The book title "Scarab-shaped seals" in my first post is also a link to a page where you can download the book by Newberry as PDF for free ...
