Following in the tradition of pioneering 19th Century photographers Frith, Du Camp, Beato et al., this first volume of Dennis Forbes’s large-format series of dramatic black-and-white photo images of Egypt’s ancient monuments focuses on major sites in Lower Egypt — beginning with Alexandria and Tanis in the Delta, moving on to the great pyramids, the Sphinx and tombs at the Giza Plateau and then to Cairo (including the Egyptian Museum), followed by Memphis and the Step Pyramid Complex and several mastaba cemeteries of Sakkara, plus the pyramids at Abusir, Dahshur and Meidum. Many of the 312 stunningly detailed images are full page.
