but don't buy it for your kindle. there's no way to jump to the prayers you need, and it's simply too long to shuffle through every time. i'll probably never look at this again.
The half plate reproductions are just acceptable with a large lens.
The original text is dated and of course highly questionable.
It is a book that will join a number of other Budge originals and copies in my library.
Reproduction books are often irritating in that they are often incomplete - My copies of
Budge; The Papyrus of Ani; A reproduction in facsimile, is missing all of the 37 essential
plates, Budge The Egyptian book of the Dead; The Papyrus of Ani Egyptian Text Transliteration
and Translation missing once again the original 37 Plates, & Budge; Papyrus of Ani, The Egyptian
Book of the Dead,is printed in some 'New Age' typo which seems intent on placing the contents
firmly within a context of crystals & incense! None of these books sadly contain the printing history
of the publications, and this last one, once again has no title on the spine!
