Reviews

delight anyone interested in the art and archaeology of the ancient world.
Covering three millennia of Egyptian art, this beautifully illustrated volume presents and chronological survey of the monuments and art works of the ruling elite of ancient Egypt...This book is sure to delight anyone interested in the art and archaeology of the ancient world. -- Rhonda Cooper "KLIATT"
Robins has produced the first significant general survey of ancient Egyptian art in the English language since Cyril Aldred's "Egyptian Art in the Days of the Pharaohs, 3100-320 BC "and W. Stevenson Smith's "The Art and Architecture of Ancient Egypt,.".Unique to this survey is the inclusion of Ptolemaic art and the attention paid to the decoration of sarcophagi, coffins, and mummy cartonages over three millennia. The text is authoritative and fully referenced with an excellent bibliography. This work will interest general readers as well as scholars and is recommended for all public and academic libraries. -- Edward K. Werner "Library Journal"
