NEW AND IMPORTANT
WORKS on EGYPT and ASSYRIA
HILTON PRICE (F. G.) Dir. S. A. A Catalogue of the Egyptian Antiquities in possession of F. G. HILTON PRICE, Dir. F.S.A., 4to. pp. viii and 480, with coloured and photographic plates and many hundred illustrations in the text, cloth, £2. 25 1897
This handsome volume describing the collection of Egyptian Antiquities in the possession of Mr. Hilton Price is not a mere catalogue of the objects described, but also gives a full account of the history of nearly all the Antiquities, such as the Deities, Amulets, Scarabs, Ushabtiu, etc., each group being prefaced by a short introduction.
The book contains several plates, many illustrations in the text and a good index. It will be found to be a useful book for the Collector and Student of Egyptian Antiquities.
"Egyptologists and lovers of the work and art of ancient Egypt will welcome Mr. F. G. Hilton Price's Catalogue of the Egyptian Antiquities (Quaritch) in his possession, and many will be glad to read quietly at their leisure an account of the treasures which have for some time past been familiar to the greater number of those who are interested in such things. He was wise to follow the example set by the Duke of Northumberland, Lady Meux, and the Rev. W. J. Loftie, all of whom have published catalogues of their collections, and he is to be congratulated on the appearance of the sumptuously
printed volume now before us. Mr. Price's Catalogue' contains nearly four thousand entries, which describe a representative collection of small Egyptian antiquities, that is to say scarabs, shabti figures, bronze gods and sacred animals, objects in faïence, etc. Naturally, as he himself says, his collection contains neither large stone monuments, nor mummies, nor objects the proper place for which is a public museum. Messrs. Harrison's hieroglyphic types have been freely used, and antiquities of special interest are illustrated either by plates or wood-blocks inserted in the text."-Athenæum, September 11th, 1897.

Recherches sur les Origines
L'Age de la Pierre et les Metaux. Par J. DE MORGAN, pp. xiv + 270,
"M. de Morgan's book bristles with interesting points. The value of his book consists not only in the newness of the facts which he produces, but also in the carefulness of his arrangements of them and the deductions therefrom; and something is to be said for the honesty which he displays in discussing subjects with which he is well acquainted, and in leaving those of which he has no special knowledge, to the investigations of experts."-Nature, April 22nd, 1897.

A book for beginners, comprising the Introduction, a variety of Stories and Reading Lessons, and a Glossary.
The widespread interest in Egyptology which has sprung up during the last few years has produced an increased demand for books upon every branch of the science; Egyptologists have striven to meet this demand, and the wants of almost every class of student have been adequately supplied. Only the beginner has been somewhat forgotten. This book will meet this want and at a moderate cost.

No pains have been spared to make the vocabulary complete. With a view of helping the beginner English versions of a few of the texts have been added, and it is hoped that these may smooth his way and lead to the perusal of others.
