Summary
"In this illustrated and closely argued book, a completely updated and much expanded third edition of his magisterial survey, Professor Curl describes the numerous revivals of the Egyptian style from Antiquity to the present day, drawing on a wealth of sources. His pioneering and definitive work analyses the remarkable and persistent influence of Ancient Egyptian culture on the West. For students of art, architectural and ancient history, and those interested in Western European culture generally, this book will be an invaluable addition to the available literature."--BOOK JACKET
