This is an auction for THE TOMB OF TUTANKHAMEN by Howard Carter. review:

"This book was written to inform the curious while the tomb was being cleared. Starting with a biography of Lord Carnarvon who financed the expedition, it then outlines what was known of King Tut at the time, and the background of the Valley of the Kings and a discussion on the theft of antiquities. Then begins the story of Carter's involvement. With a combination of the words and pictures it is possible to see what events were like for them. An engaging book, it includes 17 colour plates and 65 other photographs."
