For those interested my local Works (Croydon) had three discounted Egypt books today. I suspect other branches might also have copies.

Pick of the bunch is Treasures of the Pyramids by Zahi Hawass with a foreword by Suzanne Mubarak.  Easy to see why that has been remaindered.  I didn't pick up a copy as the flat is in chaos because I need ceilings replaced - leak from the flat above.  It took the insurance assessor less than 10 minutes to approve the claim. I may grab a copy next week. The price is a very reasonable £9.99. It's an AUC Press publication, originally priced at $70 - see http://www.aucpress.com/p-2919-the-treasures-of-the-pyramids.aspx for details.

At the same price was Egypt Past and Present which contrasts old lithographs with modern photographs of the same scenes.  For me it's a book which interests for an hour or two but isn't a "keeper" so I ignored that. There was also Treasures of the Pharaohs at £6.99. It looked more tourist oriented but I will take a look next week when I have more time.

Many thanks for the heads up on this. Just visited my local store (Edinburgh) and found The Royal Mummies by Francis Janot and The Nubian Pharoahs by Charles Bonnet and Dominique Valbelle too. Both at £9.99 each.
