The first part of this completely revised edition of Volume III covers the pyramid fields
of the northern section of the Memphite necropolis, taking full account of excavations
carried out or published since the appearance of the original edition. A new attempt,
including detailed plans, has been made to describe the complicated site of Giza with its
pyramids, the Great Sphinx, the surrounding mastabas and rock-cut tombs. The
description includes the tomb scenes and the location of all statues and other relevant
objects removed to museums. As usual the volume is full indexed.
