A Hieroglyphic Dictionary of Egyptian Coffin Texts (New)
by Van der Molen, R.
Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers
Book ID: 9789004116542, 9004116540
Please inquire for availability
The present volume is the long-awaited lexicon of Egyptian coffin texts. In 1961 A. de Buck published his important seven-volume Egyptian Coffin Texts. The major Egyptian dictionaries having appeared before that date, De Buck's 1961 corpus of texts was left without lexicographical covering since then.
The importance of these texts, however, is considerable for a variety of reasons; they are one of the most important literary texts of classical Egypt; the many variants greatly enlarge our understanding of grammar and linguistic structures; the coffin texts are magical texts, the effectiveness of which depended upon the exact reproductions of the original spells.
Included are all the variant hieroglyphic forms, and the fragments, often reconstructed, contained in De Buck's volume 7. Special features are a list (reproduction) of yet unreadable hieroglyphs, as well as a list of the cryptic writings, contained in the coffin texts.
The dictionary is shaped after Erman & Grapow's Wörterbuch der Ägyptischen Sprache and Faulkner's Egyptian Dictionary.

Schulke, Daniel A. (ed)
Three Hands Press
Limited to 800 copies
The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution. Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
