Description

This is E. A. Wallis Budge's translation of the Egyptian 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)
