Last week, out of 31,000 people who got books from the site - 8 people gave donations. These books can take me from 2 to 10 hours to create. I want to keep them free, but need some support to be able to do so. If you can, please make a small donation (the average is £2.50). If you prefer to donate using bitcoin, go here.

This is E. A. Wallis Budge's translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Jam packed with footnotes, this book has an extensive introductory section by Budge which covers such things as the Gods of the Book of The Dead, the Egyptians ideas of God, the legends of Ra, Osiris, Isis and funeral ceremonies. Apart from the introduction, there is of course, the actual Book of the Dead. This edition was formatted using the Sacred Texts online book. In regards to the omittance of hieroglyphs: "Because of the substantial amount of hieroglyphics interspersed in the original text, I have omitted the ### 'glyph' placeholder where context permits, for readability" (Sacred Texts)
