  • 55,259 Words

This is the 1908 English translation of Pierre Loti's travelogue concerning Egypt: "La Mort de Philae". This fascinating and easy-to-read volume will appeal to readers with an interest in Egypt in the early 20th century, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of vintage travel writing. Contents include: "A Winter Midnight Before The Great Sphinx", "The Mosques Of Cairo", "The Hall Of The Mummies", A Centre Of Islam", "In The Tombs Of The Apis", "The Outskirts Of Cairo", "Archaic Christianity", "The Race Of Bronze", "A Charming Luncheon", "The Downfall Of The Nile", etc. Pierre Loti (14 January 1850 - 10 June 1923) was a French novelist and naval officer most famous for his exotic novels. Due to his career as an officer in the navy travelling the world, he was able to imbue his work with a real authenticity, presented with a mastery of language and narrative rivalled by few others. Other notable works by this author include: "Pêcheur d'Islande" (1886), "Madame Chrysanthème" (1887), and "Ramuntcho" (1897). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
