Quote:
OEB 12129 (AEB 1966.0578): "The author gives an extensive description of the royal necropoleis of Thebes. The tombs are not only described, but also a survey of earlier explorations and a historical background of the period in which they were built are given. The figures include many plans of tombs and maps of the area. We mention for example fig. 19: Carter's unpublished sketch maps of western Thebes, Wādi C and Wādi Tongue between Wādis F and G. Each chapter is provided with abundant bibliographical material.

The following subjects are dealt with: the royal necropoleis of the XIth Dynasty (p. 7-34), the royal necropoleis of the XVIIth Dynasty (34-49), Wādi Biban el-Molūk (50-69), Biban el-Molūk: the royal tombs of the XVIIIth Dynasty (69-103), the Valley of the Kings: the royal tombs of the XIXth Dynasty (103-124), the Valley of the Kings: the royal tombs of the XXth Dynasty (125-136), Biban el-Molūk: the small corridor tombs (136-155), Biban el-Molūk: the pit tombs (156-169), the queens' cliffs (170-207), Wādi Biban el-Harim (208-227), the mummies of Dynasties XVII through XXI (228-248), the mummy dockets and linen notations (249-264), the tomb robbery and related papyri (265-273), and the necropoleis as a whole and the component parts of the royal tomb (273-286). An appendix on the sarcophagi, canopic chests and plinths (287-291) is added.

Index of tombs on p. 292-295; index of tomb owners on p. 295-297; selective general index on p. 297-298.

Photographs and Appendix 2 (selected pottery fragments) have been omitted, in spite of retention of notices; a few published figures, now unlisted, have also been eliminated. Corrections could not be incorporated. Economy of time and cost made this necessary, but the author hopes that one day the publication can take the form originally projected."

"The Bible" of the royal tomb plants in Western Thebes, a must have for anyone seriously interested.

Greetings, Lutz.
