Topographical Bibliography of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Texts, Reliefs and Paintings. Volume III: Memphis. Part II: Saqqâra to Dahshûr
Second Edition, Revised and Augmented

The volumes of this bibliography show the Egyptologist where to find published and unpublished records of ancient Egyptian monuments which remain in situ, those which have been removed but can be traced to a definite site, as well as those in museums and private collections where the provenance has been lost. Monuments are arranged geographically and there are indices, including kings, deities and private individuals, for each volume. The first two volumes contain the account of the temples and tombs at Thebes. The third volume deals with the monuments of Memphis, with its vast necropolis of pyramids and tombs; the fourth with Lower and Middle Egypt. The fifth and sixth volumes cover the sites and temples of Upper Egypt, and the seventh Nubia, the deserts and finds of Egyptian objects outside Egypt. Monuments of provenance not known are being presented systematically in the eighth volume, parts 1 and 2 of which list statues, and parts 3 and 4 stelae.
This second part of Volume III (Memphis: Saqqâra to Dahshûr) covers the southern section of the Memphite necropolis and the temple and town site of Mît Rahîna. It lists published as well as important unpublished sources, such as manuscripts, drawings and photographs. Thirty-six pages of maps and plans accompany the text, and the volume is fully indexed. This is an unchanged reprint of the second edition, originally published in 1981.
