"Among Egyptologists Budge was the best Semitic scholar of his generation. His most important original work lay in the deciphering of the hieratic papyri in the Museum, above all the remarkable Teaching of Amenemapt (1924), and in the edition of a standard text of the Book of the Dead (1898). His reading books, devised to enable private students to read, were the best introductions to hieroglyphs in English for 30 years. The Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary (1920), a remarkable achievement for one man, is still useful" (DNB). Without scarce dust jacket. A fine inscribed copy.
