This is an auction for VALLEY OF THE KINGS by John Romer. reviews:

"VALLEY OF THE KINGS tells both the ancient story of the Valley of the Kings and the modern one of its rediscovery, to which the main part of the book is dedicated. The detailed narrative covers the careers of the travellers, scholars and archaeologists involved, from colourful pioneers like the erstwhile circus strongman 'The Great' Belzoni, to Howard Carter and the most magnificent discovery of them all in Tutankhamun's tomb."

"FIVE STARS!!! I must sing this work's praise. It is an exquisite masterpiece, spending time on many of the lesser known tombs and their excavators. True, there is the usual chapter on Tutankhamun, but in John Romer's case it is there in reference to the whole of the Carter/Carnarvon excavations. An indispensable reference work."

"FIVE STARS! This book presents a chronological history of excavation in the Valley of the Kings, both describing the finds and introducing the treasure hunters, archaeologists, and entrepreneurs who discovered them. Romer's love for the ancient Egyptians shines through his record of history every time he describes their art or architecture. This is the book's main drawback, as Romer's enthusiastic portrayal of the beauties of the valley inspires a desire to see that is not sufficiently served by the book's plates and tomb layouts. I wanted so much more, more pictures and more layouts, maps of the valley, etc. This book made me long for a trip to Egypt!"
