The motive which originally induced me to enter on the inquiries contained in the following work was the desire to elucidate, through the mythology of the ancient Egyptians, the relations of that people to other branches of the human family. The arts and the literature of Egypt appear to have been the produce of the country and its peculiar possession: they display no indications of foreign origin and improvement. The language and the physical characters of the people are likewise peculiar and strongly distinguished from those belonging to other races of men. Even many parts of theE gyptian mythology, like the poetical fictions of the Greeks and the Hindoos, bore an evident relation to the local features and physical conditions of the region where they were invented.
