  1. One of the great problems confronting the modern Egyptologist is the "Book of the Dead." As far back as we have any considerable literary remains, the ancient Egyptian was accustomed to equip the dead with certain writings supposed to be of great efficacy in carrying him through the dangers which should unavoidably confront him in the hereafter. The efficacy of these writings chiefly consisted in their magical potency, in which the Egyptian had implicit faith. As a result of the fact that these writings (now comprehended under the general title "Book of the Dead") were regularly deposited in the tomb with the deceased person, whom they were intended to serve, the scribes and copyists who produced the manuscripts soon grew very careless and inaccurate. They were not troubled with any fear of complaint on the part of the unfortunates who were trying to make use of the bad copies in the next world. Add to this the further fact that some of these texts are very old, and were not understood by the scribal copyists themselves, and we shall see that corruption of the texts ran riot. It became so bad, indeed, that in all probability we shall never possess a good text, or even a usable text, of the "Book of the Dead," for no collation of duplicates carries us far enough back behind the sources of corruption. Dr. Budge at the very beginning minimizes this difficulty; but in the writer's opinion it is one which will become more and more evident as the study of these texts proceeds. Dr. Budge's book, therefore, directs little attention toward the attainment of a better text. But it is nevertheless a very useful book; and, in spite of the difficulties attending any translation of the "Book of the Dead," Dr. Budge's volumes may be highly recommended to the layman. This three-volume edition is the outgrowth of the author's larger edition containing also the original text and a dictionary, which was published in 1897. The translation is preceded by an introduction, containing a useful account of the "Book of the Dead," together with the ideas and motives which gave rise to this class of literature. It would be impossible in the space at the writer's command to discuss the treatment in this introduction. In one or two instances the reviewer is unable to reconcile the author with himself. For example he says: "There is little doubt that many of the formulae found in the Heliopolitan Recension of the 'Book of the Dead,' which was in use during the IVth and Vth Dynasties, date from a very early pre-dynastic period." It is difficult to make this statement agree with the following: "Of the history of the 'Book of the Dead' during the 2nd, 3rd, and IVth Dynasties we know nothing, and no copy of the Recension of it then in use has come down to us." It is surprising to find the author, in this introduction, deriving the origin of certain customs from their occurrence in the myth. It is, of course, exactly the reverse which is true: the Egyptians do not embalm because Osiris was embalmed; but, on the contrary, Osiris was embalmed because the Egyptians were accustomed to embalm. It is the customs of a people which go into a myth; not the myth which makes the customs of the people.

    The writer is in hearty sympathy with the author's remark: "The more the 'Book of the Dead' is read and examined, the better chance there is of its difficult allusions being explained, and its dark passages made clear" (pp. vi, vii); and it is to be hoped that a frank recognition of the unusual difficulties involved in the problem may aid in its solution. ~ James H Breasted 1902
