BUCK, ADRIAAN DE. - Het typische en het individueele bij de Egyptenaren. Rede uitgesproken bij de opening zijner lessen als lector in de Egyptologie aan de Rijks-Universiteit te Leiden op 5 juni 1929.

Leiden, Eduard Ijdo, 1929. Crown quarto. Pp. 29. Original printed wrappers; small inscription. In a very good condition. ¶ ~ First edition. Extremely rare original of De Buck's oration, addressed at the Leiden University on June 5, 1929 on the occasion of his first lecture there. His doctoral thesis was presented at Leiden seven years earlier, almost to the day. Published privately by the now defunct Leiden printers firm of IJdo. Adriaan de Buck (1892-1959) studied Egyptology under Sethe, Erman and Möller to become later one of the foremost Egyptologists of his time. In 1922 he gained a theological doctorate at the University of Leiden, for which he wrote a thesis on the Primeval Hill as a concept in Egyptian religion, 'a work which has exercised a profound influence on all later studies on the Heliopolitan theology'. (Dawson & Uphill). In 1925 he was asked by Gardiner and Breasted to edit an extensive and fully comprehensive edition of the Coffin Texts to be published by the Oriental Institute of Chicago. At the time of his death seven great volumes of texts had appeared, and part of his other great work of translating and commenting on them had also been completed, 'an achievement rarely equalled by one individual in the field of Egyptology'.
