The Egypt that so enticed and enchanted intrepid archaeologist-sleuth Amelia Peabody in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was a place of wonder, mystery, danger, and the lure of antiquity. Now, with this monumental volume of Egyptian culture, history, and esoterica, readers will be able to immerse themselves in the great lady&;s world more completely than ever before.

Journey through the bustling streets and markets of Cairo a century ago. Surround yourself with the customs and color of a bygone time. Explore ancient tombs and temples and marvel at the history of this remarkable land&;from the age of the pharaohs through the Napoleonic era to the First World War. Also included in Amelia Peabody&;s Egypt are a hitherto unpublished journal entry and intimate biographies of the Emersons and their friends, which provide a uniquely personal view of the lives, relationships, opinions, politics, and delightful eccentricities of mystery&;s first family, as well as unforgettable pearls of wit and wisdom from everyone&;s favorite Egyptologist herself.

Containing nearly 600 black-and-white photographs and illustrations, and articles by numerous experts, Amelia Peabody&;s Egypt sparkles with unforgettable glimpses of the exotic and the bizarre, the unusual and the unfamiliar&;a treasure trove that overflows with Egyptological riches, along with wonderful insights into the culture and mores of the Victorian era, including the prevalent attitudes on empire, fashion, feminism, tourists, servants, and much more.

A one-of-a-kind collection that offers endless hours of pleasure for Peabodyphiles and Egypt aficionados alike, here is a tome to cherish: a grand and glorious celebration of the life, the work, and the world of the incomparable Amelia Peabody.
