Excerpt from The Egyptian Pantheon: An Explanatory Catalogue of Egyptian Antiquities
These little monuments, for the greater part from 18 to 40 centuries old, take us back to the oldest known civilization, teaching us its religion and art - therefore, no other monuments, whether large or small, have greater interest attaching to them.
This collection, with its catalogue, is the result of the research and careful selection of an amateur American archæologist, Orientalist and traveller; it is comparatively small, and perhaps incomplete, but made without the aid of any government or association, and, it is hoped, will prove of interest in our great Columbian Exposition. As this is only intended as a catalogue, but few brief notes are given, yet some remarks on the History of Egypt, her Mythology and Funerary Rites will, it is believed, not be out of place.
