Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, xvi, 171 pp, [16]p. : ill., maps ; From the blurb: "Beginning in the early sixteenth century, exploration and study of ancient Egypt was a major occupation of British intellectuals and gentlemen-travellers. Yet standard histories of British Egyptology have ignored or glossed over the accomplishments of the early explorers and writers, who laid the foundation for the achievements of such men as Sir Flinders Petrie. This book presents for the first time a chronological account of the origins and early development of British Egyptology. It details the discoveries, adventures, and misadventures of early travellers along the Nile, from Lawrence Aldersey, who published descriptions of the ruins at Alexandria and the Pyramids at Gaza in the late 1500s, to Alexander Rhind, who in the late 1800s pioneered the establishment of archaeological methodology. Professor Wortham has based his work on early travel narratives, scholarly articles in antiquarian journals, excavation reports, proceedings of learned societies, and similar sources. In correcting several distortions in earlier accounts of British Egyptology, he has provided a new dimension in the history of a vital area of intellectual learning."
