1 Tyldesley, Joyce CLEOPATRA Last Queen of Egypt
NY Basic Books 2008 0465009409 / 9780465009404 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear to DJ. ; 290pp, illustrated. The Romans regarded her as " 'fatale monstrum' "-a fatal omen. Pascal said the shape of her nose changed the history of the world. Shakespeare portrayed her as an icon of tragic love. But who was Cleopatra, really? We almost feel that we know Cleopatra, but our distorted image of a self-destructive beauty does no justice to Cleopatra's true genius. In 'Cleopatra', Egyptologist Joyce Tyldesley offers an unexpectedly vivid portrait of a skillful Egyptian ruler. Stripping away our preconceptions, many of them as old as Egypt's Roman conquerors, Cleopatra is a magnificent biography of a most extraordinary queen. ; 290 pages
