As much as I enjoy a good book on comparative religion, this really wasn't the time or place. As such, I side-eyed a lot of the talk about morality in ancient Egypt and the "savagery" of the people.

Book of the Dead" is the title now commonly given to the great collection of funerary texts which the ancient Egyptian scribes composed for the benefit of the dead. These consist of spells and incantations, hymns and litanies, magical formulae and names, words of power and prayers, and they are found cut or painted on walls of pyramids and tombs, and painted on coffins and sarcophagi and rolls of papyri. These titles are merely translations of the name given by the Egyptian tomb-robbers to every roll of inscribed papyrus which they found with mummies, namely, "Kitāb-al-Mayyit," "Book of the dead man," or "Kitāb al-Mayyitun," "Book of the dead" (plur.

I should have read the reviews. Misleading one description says 700 plus pages, another says 70. This book is the 70. Save your money. It's a summary far from a complete summary at that. For a deeper understanding check out Nsut Bty ny Asar Hotep.

Not what it says. I was expecting a translated version of the book of the dead not the cliff notes. Very very disappointed
  • Kerdana
Ridiculous edition. The description for the KINDLE EDITION purports to be the full transcription by Budge, but there are only about 15 pages. Well, you get what you pay for in this case: ZILCH. But the description truly should be differentiated.
  • Contancia
This book is fascinating. It is what the ancient Egyptians believed and a lot of it we still believe in present day religion. They weren't too far from the truth. It doesn't tell you all of the beliefs but enough to make it interesting reading.

one can't fault budge for being a product of his time. compared to more modern writers he's a little stilted and stuffy, but i gather (not being an expert myself) that he's a very good translator and that this is a Very Important Work.
but don't buy it for your kindle. there's no way to jump to the prayers you need, and it's simply too long to shuffle through every time. i'll probably never look at this again.

A reasonably well presented facsimile of the of the 1920 Edition.
The half plate reproductions are just acceptable with a large lens.
The original text is dated and of course highly questionable.
It is a book that will join a number of other Budge originals and copies in my library.
Reproduction books are often irritating in that they are often incomplete - My copies of
Budge; The Papyrus of Ani; A reproduction in facsimile, is missing all of the 37 essential
plates, Budge The Egyptian book of the Dead; The Papyrus of Ani Egyptian Text Transliteration
and Translation missing once again the original 37 Plates, & Budge; Papyrus of Ani, The Egyptian
Book of the Dead,is printed in some 'New Age' typo which seems intent on placing the contents
firmly within a context of crystals & incense! None of these books sadly contain the printing history
of the publications, and this last one, once again has no title on the spine!

This book is not a translation of 704 pages by Sir Wallis Budge, it is a collection of essays, of 64 pages, by Sir Wallis Budge. Perhaps the text I received comprises only the introduction to the original book. The product page is misleading. The positive reviews of this product all refer to the translation, which I had been hoping to purchase. I am having to send the book back for a refund.
