Keys of Egypt,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Linguist and the Emperor: Napoleon and Champollion's Quest to Decipher the Rosetta Stone (Hardcover)
What a shame this is disappointing. For anyone wanting a good, well-written modern biography of Champollion, with lots of background on hieroglyphs, they should go for The Keys of Egypt by Lesley & Roy Adkins.
