REISNER, G.A. [GEORGE ANDREW]. - Models of Ships and Boats.

Cairo, Institut Francaise d'Archeologie 1913. Largish quarto later quarter cloth with the front wrapper mounted; xxviii,171pp, 33 photo plates, 389 illustrations through the text. A rather good copy. Catalogue General des Antiquites Egyptiennes du Musee du Caire 4798-4976 et 5034-5200. ¶ An exemplary study of the boat models found in Egyptian tombs, in turn the starting point in any investigation into the design and construction of real boats and ships in ancient Egypt. Reisner was at the forefront of the new generation of American archeologists. According to the Dictionary of Art Historians he "devised his own method of documentation, more elaborate than that of Sir Flinders Petrie [and] his method became the most methodical used in Egyptian excavations". He "died, almost idyllically, in his sleep at the Giza site, in the shadow of the great Pyramid" in 1942.
