This book is a collection of articles based on a conference held at the University of Arizona in October 1994, so quite a while ago. I did attend that conference but just recently (July 2016) obtained this book in new, unread condition. I found almost all of the articles to still be very relevant and informative.

The conference included many well-respected names in the field. The articles in this book were contributed by Daniel Polz, Claude Vandersleyen, Jiro Kondo, Lyla Pinch Brock, Edwin Brock, Erik Hornung, Richard Wilkinson, Catharine Roehrig, Earl Ertman, Kent Weeks, Garniss Curtis, John Rutherford, and Donald Ryan. The book was edited by Richard Wilkinson of the University of Arizona.

So the contents of the book are excellent. The book itself was very cheaply printed, and the glue holding the pages in the binding has essentially evaporated over the years. The result is that every page of the book becomes loose from the binding at first touch. Yes, it’s over ten years old, but still, I have books that are well over 100 years old that don’t fall apart at a touch. It seems a bit fitting, though, as Egyptologists are aware of excavated objects crumbling to dust, although those tend to be a few thousand years older.

It is a very useful book. I would be wary of purchasing a used copy without a promise of all pages being present.
