Ancient Egypt
A Thousand Miles up the Nile
by Amelia Edwards, with an Introduction by Carl Graves and Anna Garnett
This is the most important of my books, and the one by which I most hope to be remembered if I may hope to be remembered at all! Amelia B Edwards, 1877.

A chance visit to Egypt in 1873 by Amelia B. Edwards changed the future of British Egyptology forever. Her travelogue, A Thousand Miles Up the Nile, would inspire generations after her to take up her message to support and promote Egyptian cultural heritage. While the way this is done has changed a lot since Amelia's time, her legacy remains strong in the institutions she founded. This reprint, for the first time, unites previously unseen archival material with Amelia's famous text to bring her journey back to life. A new introduction provides much-needed context to the narrative - an essential companion to the book!

Finally, a chance to meet the real Amelia B. Edwards. A must buy for the introduction and cover alone!
Heba Abd El Gawad, Egyptologist".
