Egyptian Tales and Legends : Pagan Christian Muslim by E.A. Wallis Budge

Spanning the early dynastic period to modern times, this treasury of Egyptian folklore encompasses 36 beguiling stories. Assembled by a celebrated Egyptologist, the tales are populated by amorous princes, virtuous maidens, itinerant musicians, and a host of other colorful characters. The first part contains tales originally written in hieratic characters on papyrus, the second part documents the literary revolution that ensued upon the Egyptian embrace of Christianity, and third part recounts stories from the Muslims who succeeded the Copts. Taken together, these age-old tales represent a captivating cross-section of Egyptian storytelling. 40 black-and-white illus.
