1 Tyndale, Walter An Artist In Egypt
London Hodder & Stoughton First Edition Hard Cover Tyndale, Walter 
[1912]. Very Good+ in the publisher's brick-red cloth. Quarto. Both the spine and the decorative front board are lushly stamped in black and in gilt, still brilliant. Top-edge gilt. Pictorial endpapers. 286pps., plus 27 beautiful, full-color, tipped-in plates with titled tissue-guards. There is mild rubbing wear to the extremities and previous owner's name has been neatly penned on the ffep. Also, it appears as though the front hinge may have been professionally repaired; there is splitting along the endpaper, though all material is present, closed, and the binding is quite sound. The text is in bright, clean condition and all plates are pristine. A beautiful volume for those with an interest in Egypt or who appreciate great art. ".I endeavoured, in a former book on Egypt, to give my first impressions while the glamour of the East had not been dimmed by familiarity; and the kind reception of that, my first literary attempt, has encouraged me to write again after spending some years in the Nile Valley. Though first impressions may have a charm which familiarity lacks, it would be astonishing if a country so full of beauty, and of such varied interests as in Egypt, had caused familiarity to breed contempt. I may safely say that it has not had that result. A lengthened stay has certainly added to my experiences as well as to my stock of drawings and I trust it has also given me some insight into the character of the people amidst whom I dwelt. Medieval Cairo is doubtless year by year the poorer by many picturesque 'bits' which have vanished. But Cairo is a large city, and happily many years may elapse before artists will cease to go there for material. What is still untouched by the jerry builder, or has not been allowed to fall into ruin, is probably more beautiful than anything other oriental cities can show. Less change is seen in the smaller towns, and the villages are much the same in aspect as when the Saracen invaders first occupied the valley of the Nile." -- From the author's preface, Haslemere, 1912.
