Howard Carter: Before Tutankhamun

Front Cover
H.N. Abrams, 1993 - Archaeologists - 201 pages
With the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922, Howard Carter took his place in the annals of archaeology as one of the most famous and successful Egyptologists of all time. This profusely illustrated volume uses Carter's own words and those of his contemporaries in letters and diaries - augmented by Carter's own watercolors and excavation photographs to tell the story of his thirty-year obsession with ancient Egypt and his work in the quest for, and unearthing of, Tutankhamun's tomb.
