Editorial Reviews


Succeeds in its purpose of presenting everything anyone could want (or need) to know about the use of the column in ancient Eygptian architecture.' (KMT: A Modern Journal of Egyptology)

This concerted concentration can start the neophyte beginning at current perhaps 10th-grade level, nurture the amateur Egyptologist, and fill the needs of the career researcher...what the excellent early-20th-century Baedekers guidebook did, Phillips makes up-to-date and accessible.' (Choice)

A useful, well-written and profusely-illustrated corpus which will be of immense value to students of Egyptology and to anyone interested in Egyptian architecture. The authors wide knowledge of his subject and his enthusiasm for it are evident throughout.' (Egyptian Archaeology)
