Egyptian Scarabs
Carved to represent the scarabaeus beetle upon an elliptical base, their undersides engraved with an image to be impressed on clay, scarabs serve as valuable historic artifacts as well as reflections of the manners and customs of the ancient Egyptians. In this profusely illustrated volume, a noted authority examines the origin of the scarab, its importance in ancient times, its uses, and more, with detailed descriptions of the specimens depicted in the plates (over 1,100 illustrations, with 116 more in the text).
