Ancient Egyptian Magical Texts

Now back in print after 25 years: A small but unusually exhaustive collection of magical texts from some of the most important ancient Egyptian manuals and stelae, translated and organized by the renowned Dutch Egyptologist J.F. Borghouts. Translations are helpfully annotated and indexed, and Borghouts has provided a succinct overview of Egyptian magic in his Introduction. Readers with Egyptian will find it easy to follow the references to the primary editions.
