Octavo, bound in modern half black leather over marbled boards, gilt titles to spine. Issued in 2 parts, here bound together without preliminaries or title leaves - the text begins on the first leaf of the catalogue itself. 1010 columns of type, complete. Previously, Egyptologist and mystical philosopher Charles Muses's copy, with a note by him in pen on the recto of the front flyleaf: "compiled by Henri Munier, published in Cairo in 1928". Some minor stains, the binding fresh, a very good copy. Rare. ¶ "The significance of this bibliography is that not only does it include all the major works by Egyptologists past and still living up to 1928, but it also includes all the periodical articles written by them. Some of these appear in scholarly journals not devoted to Egyptian subjects alone. All items are recorded in the original language in which they were written.... Munier served as Librarian at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo from 1908 to 1925. Cites 14,000 books and articles, making this one of the most comprehensive bibliographies on the subject." - from the description of the 2008 edition reprinted by Martino Publications. It was continued (much later) in: Catalogue de la Bibliothèque du Musée égyptien du Caire, 1927-1958, published over the years 1966-1984.
