I've been watching the Metropolitan's website for any indication that they're doing a catalogue for the display of scribe-related pieces centering on their "Haremhab as a Scribe" statue, but have seen nothing... has anyone been there and seen whether they're selling a catalogue on site?

I don't think this one is a blockbuster. It's 40 pieces from their own collection, 10 of which are armor scales.

On this url, you can click on the database for the show which lists 38 of the 40 pieces in the show.

I went to the Met to see the exhibit and I was not impressed. As Stephanie had said, it's pieces from their own collection and if I recall correctly, only 1 clearly confirmed of Horemheb.

I looked to see if there was a catalog and there was not.

Phooey. Thanks for letting me know. Guess I won't be making a special trip to see it. (I was at the Met last year, so if it's only their own stuff rearranged, I've probably seen it already in essence.)
