"THE WRITINGS AND THE DRAWINGS OF THE HIDDEN PALACE WHICH APPERTAIN TO THE SOULS, AND THE GODS, AND THE SHADOWS, AND THE SPIRITS, WHICH COMPOSE THE BEGINNING OF THE HORN OF AMENT, OF THE HORIZON OF AMENT, [WHICH IS] THE UTMOST BOUNDARY OF THE THICK DARKNESS OF THE HORIZON OF AMENTET, CONTAINING THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SOULS OF THE TUAT, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SECRET SOULS, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE DOORS AND THE WAYS THROUGH AND ON WHICH THE GREAT GOD JOURNEYETH, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF ..., AND

THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOURS AND OF THEIR GODS, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE JOURNEYINGS OF THE HOURS AND OF THEIR GODS, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FORMULAE [WHICH THEY SAY] TO RA, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE SPEECHES WHICH HE MAKETH TO THEM, AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE GODS WHO PRAISE HIM AND OF THOSE WHO EFFECT DESTRUCTION."

About Author:

Budge was an English Egyptologist who worked for the British Museum between 1883 and 1924. His various translations were widely used in the academic community for many years and, again, some of them right up to the present.

Throughout the years he studied and could translate many languages, including, ancient Egyptian, Hebrew, Syriac, Ethiopic and Arabic and Assyrian. He published important translations on the ancient Near East in these languages.

Although Budge retired from the British Museum in 1924, he continued to publish notable books and translations right up to the year he died, 1934. Probably the most important of his publications was this book, The Egyptian Book Of The Dead.
