Menes and Cheops Identified in History Under - Rikart, Carl von - 1869. 
London: Longmans, Green and Co 1869 - London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1869, First Edition. 8vo - 22.9cm. (7), 343 pp., (24) - publisher's advertisements. Publisher's brown cloth with Egyptian fret design de-bossed borders on covers, black facing winged serpents on front cover with black fret border; spine with bright gilt titles and gilt ruling at top and bottom; sepia clay end leaves, half-title page, frontis plus 4 woodcut illustrations, one comparative chart and one diagram. No prior ownership markings, binding strong and in near fine condition, no foxing. A complete copy of a very scarce publication. This is Carl von Rikart's rationale for aligning the chronology of Egyptian dynasties with the history of the bible. Rikart demonstrates the conflicts and variations of earlier similar attempts at establishing Egyptian chronologies covering 20 dynasties as laid out by Egyptologists Reichardt (Richard) Lepsius, Christian Bunsen, Edward Lane and William Osburn.
