Writing as a religious traveller, it has been my chief objective to note those points in the Life and History of Ancient Egypt, which serve to illustrate its connection with the Religion and Book of God. Herein, I have had occasion to touch upon its Chronology, Mythology, Ritual, and Civilization; not, indeed, for the purpose of a scientific investigation, but simply with a view to the practical vindication of the Bible or the general elucidation of Christian truth." (Author). Contains four appendices elucidating the Nile Watermarks, the Egyptian Account of the Exodus, the Exodus Papyri, and Ritualistic Analogies. Binding with light wear along edges, small chips and very light fraying at head of spine. Light foxing of endpapers. Ribbon marker detached, laid in.
