112 Reid, Donald Malcolm WHOSE PHARAOHS? Archaeology, Museums, and Egyptian National Identity from Napoleon to World War I
University of California Press 2002 0520221974 / 9780520221970 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket is protected in plastic sleeve. ; Egypt's rich and celebrated ancient past has served many causes throughout history--in both Egypt and the West. Concentrating on the era from Napoleon's conquest and the discovery of the Rosetta Stone to the outbreak of World War I, this book examines the evolution of Egyptian archaeology in the context of Western imperialism and nascent Egyptian nationalism. Traditionally, histories of Egyptian archaeology have celebrated Western discoverers such as Champollion, Mariette, Maspero, and Petrie, while slighting Rifaa al-Tahtawi, Ahmad Kamal, and other Egyptians. This exceptionally well-illustrated and well-researched book writes Egyptians into the history of archaeology and museums in their own country and shows how changing perceptions of the past helped shape ideas of modern national identity. Drawing from rich archival sources in Egypt, the United Kingdom, and France, and from little-known Arabic publications, Reid discusses previously neglected topics in both scholarly Egyptology and the popular "Egyptomania" displayed in world's fairs and Orientalist painting and photography. He also examines the link between archaeology and the rise of the modern tourist industry. This richly detailed narrative discusses not only Western and Egyptian perceptions of pharaonic history and archaeology but also perceptions of Egypt's Greco-Roman, Coptic, and Islamic eras. Throughout this book, Reid demonstrates how the emergence of archaeology affected the interests and self-perceptions of modern Egyptians. In addition to uncovering a wealth of significant new material on the history of archaeology and museums in Egypt, Reid provides a fascinating window on questions of cultural heritage--how it is perceived, constructed, claimed, and contested. ; 424 pages

130 Southern, Pat CLEOPATRA
Tempus Publishing 1999 0752414356 / 9780752414355 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
DJ in mylar; Cleopatra was intimately involved in the critical years that saw the Roman Republic transformed into the Roman Empire. How this transition appeared to the Queen of Egypt - and the part she played in it - is the subject of Pat Southern's engrossing new biography. Descended from the first Ptolemy, one of the companions of Alexander the Great, Cleopatra was the last in a long line of Macedonian rulers of Egypt. It was Julius Caesar's involvement in an Alexandrian civil war that led to her being set up as Queen of Egypt. She also had an affair with Caesar, by whom she produced a son Ptolemy Caesar, better known as Caesarion. A good linguist, intelligent and shrewd, she soon proved herself an able administrator - and ruthless when necessary. For two years she was a guest of Caesar's in Rome, but on his assassination she returned to Alexandria - where in turn Mark Antony was to become her geust and lover. Over the years of their acquaintance they produced three children. However, Roman sensibilities were greatly disturbed by the Donations of Alexandria whereby Antony distributed vast areas of the east to Cleopatra and their children, and their behavior allowed Octavian (the future emperor Augustus) to brand the Egyptian Queen as the arch enemy, worse than Hannibal, nearer than the Parthians and powerful because she had access to Antony's legions. ; 160 pages

131 Springborg, Patricia ROYAL PERSONS Patriarchal Monarchy and the Feminine Principle
Unwin Hyman 1990 0044453760 / 9780044453765 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. Book has minor shelfwear. ; Inscription on ffep by author. ; 1 x 9.5 x 6.5 Inches; 342 pages; It is the thesis of this book that the birth of the state, usually associated with the emergence of the Greek "polis", can in fact be traced in the foundation myths and practices of the ancient Egyptian monarchy to which the feminine principle is crucial. The central significance of women is demonstrated through exploration of Egyptian, Hittite, Babylonian and other myths, in which we have an account of the creation as a birth struggle. Creation ends with the enthronement of kings and, and although from the beginning there is no doubt that the first monarchies were patriarchal, the processes of empowerment were female. The powers of Hathor and Tiamat, Ishtar and Anath reside in their reproductive capacities, as powers of creativity of which the social power of kings is merely imitative. The form in which the institutional longevity of political office was first expressed was that of "twinning". This notion that the king had two bodies - one his mortal body and one his immortal "other" - can be seen in the concept of Greek "daimon", in the "genius" of the Roman Emperor and the "mystical body" of European Kings. It has its prototype in the pharaoh and his "ka". The "ka" as an imperishable "double" designated the corporate life of all social collectivities in ancient Egypt, the basis perhaps for the "corporation" and its institutional "representative" in Roman Law and early modern political theory. It seems, that the ancient monarchy may have represented a real altenative to the hegemonic male warrior "polis" to which we owe so many of our political institutions, and legitimating myths. The modern welfare state itself, which grew up under the wings of Kings, owes more to the conception of divine bounty dispensed through beneficent monarchs than to the assertive individualism of classical republicanism. ; Signed by Author

Ex-library copy with usual stamps, call numbers to DJ and traces of removed circulation pastedown. A few cellotape stains to inner covers else Book is VG. ; 1.25 x 9.5 x 6.5 Inches; 376 pages; The city of Memphis on the Nile, which had often served as capital in the long period preceding Egypt's conquest by Alexander the Great, became the country's "second city" following the founding of Alexandria. Drawing on archaeological findings and on an unusual combination of Greek and Egyptian evidence, Dorothy Thompson examines the city's economic life and the character of its multi-racial society in the era from Alexander to Augustus. Memphis under the Ptolemies will interest students of intercultural relations and will be essential reading for Egyptologists, papyrologists, and historians of the Hellenistic world, including those concerned with religion. The relationship of the native population with the Greek-speaking immigrants is illustrated in Thompson's analysis of the position of Memphite priests within the Ptolemaic state. Egyptians continued to control mummification and the cult of the dead; the undertakers of the Memphite necropolis were barely touched by things Greek. The cult of the living Apis bull also remained primarily Egyptian; yet on death the bull, deified as Osorapis, became Sarapis for the Greeks. Within this god's sacred enclosure, the Sarapieion, is found a strange amalgam of Greek and Egyptian cultures.

135 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
