This book is an outstanding translation and presentation of the books that make up the Papyrus of Ani. In addition to the beautiful pictures and fine translations, the commentaries in the back, along with the explanations of the vignettes contained in the papyrus are well worth the money. A must for anyone interested in Ancient Egypt and its culture.

I think this is the best edition of the Book of the out there. It has everything you need to understand it and is great for beginning scholars in Egyptology.

This book is a very great book for all people interested in Ancient Egypt. It shows all the spells one needed for the afterlife. With the heiroglyphic, egyptian, and english texts is really amazing. In the back, it has the translation in page form, for those who don't want to read the middle of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Ancient cultures.

Yes, this is the text of E. Wallis Budge's edition of the Papyrus of Ani with the hieroglyphic plates. The disappointment is the failure of the editors to include hyperlinks so that it's possible to move from one to another of the plates without moving through all of them. An impentrable system makes the book difficult to use for reference. It's all there, all a researcher has to do is thumb through page upon page upon page upon page . . .
