Published in conjunction with the 1999 exhibitions organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Reunion des musees nationaux, and the Royal Ontario Museum. Art experts examine the history of the Old Kingdom, the architecture of royal pyramid complexes and nonroyal tombs, statuary, reliefs, minor arts, and the history of excavations of Old Kingdom monuments. They also focus on individual works that illuminate a tradition that endured for 3,000 years. The texts are generously supported by 540 illustrations (420 in color) of plans, drawings, and reproductions of the works in the exhibition as well as comparative material.
