I found this item at my local Barnes&Noble bookstore. It is absolutely stunning. As if the beauty of Egypt isn't enough to captivate you, this wonderful cover featuring a lovely design is actually like a piece of jewelry you can feel. I was immediately taken by the outside but was awe-inspired by the inside. It is truly breathtaking. I would have thought a book of this style and considerable beauty would be three times as much. It is the actual book of the dead spells with vivid drawings and descriptions. This would make a wonderful gift for yourself or someone else. I would highly recommend this item to anyone who loves or just wants to know more about Egypt.

I bought this as a birthday present for my fiance's birthday and he loved it! It really is quite interesting.

I picked this book thinking it to be a reference book. As I started to read it, i realized it was the actual scrolls of the dead. It is VERY interesting, BEAUTIFULLY written, and ILLUSTRATED!

Those with more than a slight interest in Egyptology will be very disappointed in this translation of the Book of the Dead. The book contains ONLY the English translation in prose without any references to the original hieroglyphs. There are some nice photographs of the ancient text but the captions are not very informative. One would need to be able to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs fluently in order to make sense of these photographs. Ancient artefacts such as the Book of the Dead cannot be translated in full with 100% certainty, yet this book does not indicate where in the translation ambiguities or missing portions occur. The book is also quite small (about 9"x7") with small text. All in all, this set - both book and scarab - is quite beautiful but is best suited for those who have a mild interest in Egyptology and are looking for a basic introduction to the Book of the Dead.
