Excerpt from History of Egypt

In presenting to the public this little book, which treats bf the history of ancient Egypt from the earliest times to the conquest by Alexander the Great, my object has been twofold: First, to give to American readers a brief account of Egyptian history which would be as reliable as the present state of Egyptological science permits; and, second, to create a deeper interest in the study of ancient Egypt. The study of Egyptology is of the greatest importance to the theologist, the historian, the student of civilization, and the art-student. In science and art Egypt was the teacher of Greece; even the Greek alphabet is derived from the Egyptian through the medium of the Phœnician, and Greece was the teacher of Europe.

The basis of a rational study of Egyptology will always be a thorough knowledge of Egyptian history; without this the student can not properly understand the development of Egypt's civilization - of its science, its religion, its art, its language, and its literature. I have in the following pages given as complete a history as the space allotted would permit. In the introductory chapter I have not been able to give as much space as I should have wished to the subjects there treated, and have been compelled to confine myself to what was absolutely necessary. Science, art, and literature could not be treated, as even a partial account of them would have required too much space.
