From the preface: In writing this treatise my object has been to give a clear exposition of the most important shape which the doctrine of immortality assumed in Egypt. This particular form of the doctrine was only one of many different ones that were held.

Chronological Inquiry into the Ancient History of Egypt

Chronological Inquiry into the Ancient History of Egypt

I. P. Cory

This book is an attempt to determine an outline of Egyptian history. There’s not much else to say about it really. There’s no chapter list, it just gets straight in there to the content. In fact, there doesn’t appear to be any breaks at all; just one long chapter from start to finish. I realise that this description doesn’t really help but I feel the title is pretty explanatory anyway.
