The Book of the Dead: The Papyrus of Ani is the Book of the Dead for Ani, the scribe from Thebes, and is "the largest, the most perfect, the best preserved, and the best illuminated of all the papyri," according to editor and translator E.A. Wallis Budge. "Books of the Dead" were ancient Egyptian funeral texts, employed from around 1550 B.C. to 50 B.C., intended to help the dead pass through the underworld into the afterlife with magic spells and inscriptions which were written on papyrus scrolls and placed in the coffin. The Papyrus of Ani is a key scroll in understanding Egyptian Books of the Dead, and this text is ideal for those interested in the early discovery and translation of Egyptian hieroglyphics. This is the original 1895 edition and includes the full version of The Papyrus of Ani. SIR ERNEST ALFRED THOMPSON WALLIS BUDGE (1857-1934) was born in Bodmin, Cornwall in the UK and discovered an interest in languages at a very early age. Budge spent all his free time learning and discovering Semitic languages, including Assyrian, Syriac, and Hebrew. Eventually, through a close contact, he was able to acquire a job working with Egyptian and Iraqi artifacts at the British Museum. Budge excavated and deciphered numerous cuneiform and hieroglyphic documents, contributing vastly to the museum's collection. Eventually, he became the Keeper of his department, specializing in Egyptology. Budge wrote many books during his lifetime, most specializing in Egyptian life, religion, and language.

Der in Kursivhieroglyphen geschriebene Totenbuchpapyrus pBerlin P. 3003 der Qeqa aus der Ptolemaerzeit wurde zwar bereits von R. Lepsius als Vergleichszeuge herangezogen, seitdem aber nicht mehr eingehender behandelt. Martin von Falck prasentiert die Handschrift pQeqa nach den Vorgaben der Reihe Handschriften des Altagyptischen Totenbuches, wobei dem uberlieferungsgeschichtlichen Aussagewert des Textzeugen besondere Aufmerksamkeit gilt. Daher sind Abweichungen von pQeqa gegen den Referenzzeugen pTurin 1791 moglichst umfassend aufgenommen und zudem textgeschichtliche Beobachtungen in einem gesonderten Abschnitt "Skizzen zur Textgeschichte" ausgewertet worden. Uber die Analyse des Vignettenstils gelang eine sichere Lokalisierung der Handschrift in den Raum Memphis sowie ihre tentative Datierung in die 2. Halfte des 3. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. In Kombination mit den Schlussfolgerungen zur Textgeschichte bleibt dieser Befund nicht ohne Auswirkung auf die Datierung von pTurin 1791, dem wichtigsten Totenbuchzeugen der Ptolemaerzeit.

The Ancient Book of the Dead brought to life! Throughout centuries, mysterious "books of the dead men" were often found buried alongside mummies and inside tombs by Egyptian locals, grave robbers, and archeologists; however, the inscrutable writing and cryptic contents remained a perplexing puzzle until the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, which enabled ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to be translated for the first time. Soon after, scholars discerned that these grave books contained secret spells, incantations, and prayers to help, protect, and guide the dead during their journey through the underworld and to the afterlife. Here, in one volume and based on the classic editions from E.A. Wallis Budge, one of the most renowned Egyptologists of all time, this scholarly compendium delves into the history, motifs, and themes found in these afterlife companions before concluding with Budge's timeless translation of the Book of the Dead. Completely illustrated throughout, this volume brings ancient Egypt's vibrant past and secrets of the dead to life, enchanting and fascinating modern readers once again. -- back cover.
