N.M. Davies & A.H. Gardiner, Tutankhamun's Painted Box.
27 pp; 50 x 38.5 cm; 5 coloured plates; ISBN 0 900416 22 X; 1962; box. £30.00.

The main interest of this publication lies in its faithful coloured reproductions of the sides and lid of the wooden box (Carter's No. 21, now in Cairo Museum JE 61467) found in Tutankhamun's tomb. The scenes showing the young king in his chariot hunting animals and slaying enemies are deservedly famous. In the accompanying text they are described and discussed.
