A beautifully illustrated survey of Egypt by the English watercolour painter, book illustrator and travel writer, Walter Frederick Roofe Tyndale.

Tyndale (18551943) was one of the first illustrators to benefit from new developments in colour printing in the early 20th century, which led to a surge in demand for illustrations for travel books. He wrote and illustrated several volumes as well as providing pictures for other authors.

With 27 beautiful full colour, tipped-in plates - each with their original titled tissueguards.

Excerpt from An Artist in Egypt

Every season adds to the knowledge of Ancient Egypt, and gives us something which for centuries lay hid beneath the desert sands.

I have also to thank him for the unique opportunities which our desert journey, from the Nile to the Red Sea, offered; of all my experiences in Egypt, none has given me more pleasure in recalling.
