The first five volumes of "The Witches of Eileanan" series, 6 3/4" H. 1. The Witches of Eileanan - 411 pp, 1998, ISBN 0451456890 - "On the Day of Reckoning, the witches of Eileanan were outlawed - and violations of the new order were punishable by death. Eileanan's Great Towers, once meccas of magic and learning, were left in ruins. And now, the entire land trembles in fear. Yet deep in the mountains, in the shadow of Dragonclaw, a young girl is being tutored in the old ways. Ignorant of her past, uncertain of her future, the foundling Isabeau will soon be forced down a dangerous path of prophesy, conspiracy and magic. It is a world where dragons possess the key to ancient mysteries - where a lost prince will discover a strange and wondrous destiny - and where the ultimate battle between good and evil will be waged." 2. The Pool of Two Moons - 557 pp, 1999, ISBN 0451456904 - "It has been sixteen years since the Day of Reckoning, when magic and witchcraft were outlawed throughout all of Eileanan. And though rumors say that she is dead, the Arch-Sorceress Meghan o' the Beasts still lives. Traveling with her are the true heir to the throne, and the red-haired warrior Iseult. Their fates are woven together in a quest to bring magic back to the land." 3. The Cursed Towers - 544 pp, 2000, ISBN 0451456912 - "(T)he Righ, Lachlan the Winged, overturns his dead brother's decrees against witchcraft. But sixteen years of hatred and superstition have cloaked Eileanan in darkness. And though he has won the power of the Lodestar, Lachlan's rule is challenged by a mere babe - and a civil war erupts. The flame-haired twins - Iseult the Scarred Warrior and Isabeau the apprentice-witch - must go their separate ways. Iseult to fight side by side with her husband, Lachlan. Isabeau to the Cursed Towers, to master her powers - and find the family she has never known." 4. The Forbidden Land - 403 pp, 2001, ISBN 0451458281 - "After her adventures with the League of the Healing Hand, Finn the Cat finds life at Castle Rurach boring. Snowbound for the winter and faced with the prospect of being molded into 'Lady Fionnghal' by her mother, she pines to be on the battlefront with her father against the sea demons. But Finn's talents are needed elsewhere. Summoned by the Righ, Lachlan the Winged, she must embark on a perilous journey into the Forbidden Land. Imprisoned in the Black Tower is a rebellious prophet whose beliefs have made him an enemy among his own people. Now Finn must help rescue the one whose words can free a land enshrouded in darkness." 5. The Skull of the World - 385 pp, 2002, ISBN 0451458699 - "Isabeau the witch longs to rejoin her sister and her home in these uncertain times, but she must first complete one last task for her teachers. To find her true purpose in life, she must reach the Skull of the World and listen to the silent words of the White Gods. Few survive. But those who do are changed forever. Now, when she does return home, she does so with an extraordinary gift.

THE HIDDEN TOMBS OF MEMPHIS:  NEW DISCOVERIES FROM THE TIME OF TUTANKHAMUN AND RAMESSES THE GREAT., Martin, Geoffrey T.
3 Martin, Geoffrey T. THE HIDDEN TOMBS OF MEMPHIS: NEW DISCOVERIES FROM THE TIME OF TUTANKHAMUN AND RAMESSES THE GREAT.
Thams and Hudson, New York, 1991. 
216 pp, small 4to (10" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0500390266 Profusely illustrated in b&w and colour with photographs, drawings, plans. "For Geoffrey Martin and his colleagues, the internationally acclaimed discovery of the tomb of Maya was the culmination of a painstaking ten-year search at Saqqara, the burial ground of Memphis, ancient capital of Egypt. Maya had been Tutankhamun's treasurer and one of the most powerful men during the boy-king's short reign. Exploration of his t omb, and those of other important officials in the necropolis, has opened a new chapter in our understanding of Egyptian society more than 3,000 years ago. (This) is Professor Martin's first-hand account of his discoveries. Since 1975, his Anglo-D utch team has uncovered a series of spectacular funerary monuments, not just of Maya, but of Horemheb - Tutankhamun's Commander-in-Chief and later himself pharoah - Ramesses the Great's sister, Princess Tia, and other courtiers of New Kingdom Egypt. The beautiful wall reliefs and paintings in these tombs have transformed our knowledge of New Kingdom art, hitherto largely dominated by the well-known treasures of ancient Thebes. Many isolated masterpieces in the world's museums can now be linke d to the Saqqara monuments from which they originally came, thanks to the author's detective work. Illustrated throughout with photographs and drawings of all the major reliefs and other finds - from jewelry to mummy-cases - (this) is an exciting a ccount of the richest Egyptian tomb discoveries of recent times." Minor browning to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, minor rubbing. Very Good+/Very Good+
