Overview

This beautiful book presents a selection of the finest and most historically important works in the Myers Museum at Eton College, which possesses one of the world's finest collections of ancient Egyptian decorative arts. The core of the collection was brought together by Major W. J. Myers, an old Etonian who was posted to Cairo in the 1880s. Myers's hope was that the works would be an inspiration for future generations of Eton students; with the publication of this book the objects will have an impact on a much wider audience. The volume—which discusses more than one hundred works of art, all reproduced in full color—will be not only a useful reference but a source of pleasure for students and professionals alike.
