Done Yesterday Press is pleased to announce that a copy of Jonathan Meader's Ancient Egyptian Symbols: 50 New Discoveries is available at both the British Museum's Ancient Egypt and Sudan library and archive and also in the Egyptology collection of the University College London Institute of Archaeology Library. The UCL Egyptology collection is also known as the "Edwards Library" having been established through a bequest of Amelia Edwards, a popular novelist, explorer and patron of Sir Flinders Petrie.
British Museum Library and Archives
The Museum's Egyptian and Sudanese collections, among the most important of their kind in the world, are underpinned by the library of the Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan, which ranks among the top five libraries for Egyptology worldwide. The departmental library has been in existence since around 1860. Its stock enables research into all aspects of Ancient Egyptian and Sudanese cultures (prehistoric, pharaonic, Hellenistic, Roman and Late Antique Egypt and the contemporary eras in Nubia). The collection comprises 24,000 library items, the oldest of which was published in 1636.
