In the Amduat, the night-journey of the Egyptian Sungod is divided into twelve hours, each of them containing an enormous amount of insight into the human psyche.

The entire Amduat could be called the first ‘scientific publication’ of humankind describing or mapping the dangers, but also the regenerative capabilities of the night-world, providing answers to basic human questions. The synopsis of the different scenes of the Amduat, all in colour, together with its explaining text, is unique.

This book is a treasure for all those who want to explore the archetypal structure of the objective psyche, with its helpful but also with its dangerous forces. Read more Amduzt less.

I am also confused as to why the book was reviewed in such a negative light. This book has a nice heft to it, it is printed on quality paper, very sturdy dust jacket, the hardcover is a beautiful emerald color with silver metallic font, and the layout inside is quite pleasing, black font and color pictures.

Amduat – Wikipedia

I am currently building a library on ancient Egypt, and I was specifically looking for photos of the actual chamber walls of Thutmosis III, and this is the only book so far that I have found containing them.

It displays photos of each of amuat hours, all three registers, and while the pictures are smaller than what you see in the some of the larger Egyptology tomes the book does measure 9x6I am amduatt to clearly identify all of the hieroglyphs and images on the walls.

I use a magnifying glass for some of the tighter spots in the photos, but I think that kind of adds an extra dimension of fun and mystery to the text. There are also ink diagrams or schemas of each of the hours, and the glyphs are laid out nicely with the transliteration directly underneath, and the English translation below that.

I’m not sure why people dislike this presentation, I actually find it to be quite useful. But then again, I’m not all that interested in other people’s translations of Egyptian hieroglyphs anyway. I see them more as guidelines than anything else. So if you are seeking, get this book! It is important, and a solid addition to the personal library.

And even if it doesn’t grab you when you first lay eyes on the contents, by all means hang onto it for future use. You’ll be glad you did: Very well put together book, the binding is solid and the pages are of good quality.

No real commentary for those that are looking for a thorough discussion on the mdw ntr and the mdw ntr isn’t as crisp as I have seen in other publications. BUT, if you have even the faintest familiarity og the mdw ntr, reading them will be no problem at all. Photographs of the actual writing are included and are in color and easily read. This amfuat is worth having, no question about it.


A breathtaking glimpse into one of the holy books of Ancient Egypt with excellent scholarly bkok. I expected a little more explanation of the text, but overall I liked it.

The aduat is ok for a rehashed and very very very antiquated and stolen presentation style but in no uncertain terms could this book ever qualify as a circa book in that price od, it isnt even close to that caliber. So if you are ok with isnt this kind of Budge all over again except 11 times the cost then buy it, but be prepared for a major disappointment not like the authors other attempts which were a little more efficient in price.
