Egyptian Art - Cyril Aldred From the introduction:Manetho, the learnéd High Priest in Heliopolis who was commissioned by Ptolemy I in the third century BC to write a history of Egypt, divided into thirty-one dynasties the entire chronicle of events, from the unification of Upper and Lower Egypt under Menes, the first pharaoh, to the conquest of Alexander the Great in 332 BC.This is a lovely book for an Egyptophile such as I and, for me, is a reference book and one to catch snippets of every so often. We went to Berlin just to catch a glimpse of the original Nefertiti bust(page 150) that can only be (sadly) copied in Egypt since it was stolentaken.
