Temple Of Sety I: Abydos (Bk. I). by. Farid Atiya. The temple of Sety I at Abydos is famous for its excellent reliefs, many of which portray the warrior-king engaged in various ritual scenes with deities. These are beautifully portrayed with detailed captions. This is the only book I've found so far on Abydos that provides a good set of photos of the wall decoration in the temple. The start of the book gives a good background to Abydos and explains how different it is to many other ancient Egyptian temples. After that every second page has a full page colour photo of a wall decoration and an explanation of the scene. The sheer quality of the wall decoration in this temple i This is only a small book with 72 pages but its a very nice book nevertheless.

This desire for legitimacy has also indirectly benefitted us today, as Seti left behind a list of kings that helped patched some holes in the history of Egyptian kingship, as well as a spectacular monument that continues to be visited by thousands of people every year.

Wow, what startling images and what illuminating text. This book is more like a leaflet though and does not show all of the temples visual schemes, layouts, and the like. I didn't pay anywhere near the range of prices I've seen for this book - from $400 to $900! and if I had, I'd be pissed. As it is though, I'm pleased and better educated for having read it - an astounding tour de force of the ancient Egyptian temple builders.

Having visited the temple of Seti I at Abydos, I was very happy to find this book, and it exceeded my expectations. Actually, I wish it was longer! The reliefs in this temple are exquisite, real masterpieces; Seti's temple is the best decorated in all Egypt. The carving of the raised reliefs is delicate and detailed, even aside from the incredible amount of surviving paint. Not only does this book include very good photos of a nice selection of reliefs, it includes translations of the inscriptions contained in the photos.

It is especially nice to see Egyptology books written by Egyptian archaeologists; although a few grammatical errors make it clear that the author is a non-native speaker of English, his English is very good (certainly far superior to my Arabic!), and quite understandable.

This is a lovely little book, and I only hope the author and photographer expand on it in the future to produce a full record of this wonderful temple and its entire decoration. As it stands now, this book is a bargain!
