Wonderful images and layout of history

A volume in the Pelican History of Art; first published in 1958, this has long been the standard history of Egyptian art in English. It was revised in 1998, but the text gives the impression of a very old book; the illustrations are almost all in black and white. It is extremely detailed, particularly for the earlier periods; the treatment of the post-New Kingdom material is somewhat sketchy.
