I have never seen so many gatefolds in one book, but here we have it -- 20 of them in full color. I have photographed two to give you an idea of what to expect. All are sumptuous. There are also color images on every page, 201 in full color. The book is wonderrfully large measuring 10-1/2 x 13-1/2" and has 288 pages in cluding index. Here's a partial of contents: Eernal House of the Soul; The Nobles of the New Kingdom at Thebes; Function and Architecture of Theban Tombs; Scenes of Earthly Life From Death To Eternal Life; Cult Rituals, Offering Meals, and Banquets; Burial Euipment; Explorers and Vandals -- Ancient and Modern; and Saving the Valley of the Nobles. Book is clean and bright with no tears or chips, no names or writing, no remainder marks and no creasing.. There is no printed price on the flaps, but this is not unusual with university presses. The book will arrive in a brand new mylar cover to protect the dustjacket.
