Frontispiece lithograph. Tenth Memoir, special publication of the Egypt Exploration Fund. "Not only the copies of the scenes and inscriptions published by Lepsius and Prisse, but also very accurate and complete notes of the inscriptions made by Mr. Percy Newberry for the Archaeological Survey in 1892–3 were collated with the originals; so that the readings which have been adopted are either established by two or three witnesses, or, in the comparatively few cases where they diverge from previous copies, have been subjected to searching examination. All the plans of separate tombs in the volume have been copied from Mr. John Newberry's excellent plans, which were measured and fully drawn by him on the spot in 1892. In preparing them for the lithographer O have added the results of slight additional clearances which I made. The same is to be said of plates ix. and x., which are based on drawings by Mr. Howard Carter. My thanks are also due to my sister, Miss Lilian Davies, for two careful copies from squeezes of reliefs in the tomb of Urarna (Frontispiece and Plate xiii). Illustrated with with thirty-five plates, including frontispiece, two of them folding, eleven double pages, and plate xv., West Wall–Figure of Urarna, in a two color lithograph.
