Description: Color lithograph. Image measures 15 5/16" x 12". Sheet measures 21" x 27 1/4". Plate XXVI.

Comments: This color lithograph features a mummy from the Greco-Egyptian period and its decorated case. Published in 1887, the print is highly detailed in its rendering of the case's hieroglyphics, painted decoration, and wear. This print is from a limited edition of Binion's "Ancient Egypt or Mizraim," Vol. II, which is considered a landmark of American chromolithography. This print is in very good condition, with the exception of some small pink stains below the left figure. Discoloration and fingerprints are limited to the margins and do not affect the quality of the image. Samuel Augustus Binion (1853-1914) was a Polish author, traveler, and translator. With "Ancient Egypt," he sought to present Egyptian history, art, and architecture in a thorough manner. He intended the size of the work to be sumptuous enough to allow for the faithful depiction of buildings, ornamentation, hieroglyphics, and decorations in their original colors, yet still manageable for use in both private and public libraries.

Dear Mr. Hample, Just a short note to confirm receipt of the book and my absolute satisfaction with it. I am in the process of building a library of books from the interwar period to document and understand the events as seen by contemporaries as very often knowledge of what happened afterwards colours the views of historians. I am mainly focussed on Italian matters but books describing current events in other countries such as Germany, UK, France, Spain, Japan and the US are of interest to me. If you have a catalogue or can indicate to me any other books that you think could interest me, I would be very gratefll.Thank you in advance and best regards. - Massimo C.
