Signed by Author. 107 pages, size 7.25 inches tall by 5 inches. ' This small volume is only to lure the reader on to ask for more, but more than I can hand out! If you have not left it in the train before you reach Marseilles, or used it as a wedge for your deck chair, or cried 'Piffle!' and 'Tosh!', and aimed it at a flying seagull (this is quite an amusing pastime) you may still find it quite handy. I have seen travellers in despair as they plod through masses of names and hieroglyphics, their heads reeling with impossible names of Kings, Queens, Gods, Goddesses, and odd creatures. As the pageant of colour in an Egyptian sunset rises and expands, so you will grow at last to recognise the oft-repeated figures of those Kings and Queens, Gods and Goddesses, and all odd creatures, and you will get a few of them fixed on your mind quite clearly, and in the dawn of green, lemon, and silver, you may still get touched by the Sun '.
