A world-recognized expert in Coptic studies, Crum spent much of his career cataloguing Coptic materials. In this historic catalogue, Crum presents the Coptic monuments of the Museum of Cairo. Although given a French title, the contents of this book are written in English. Some of the more striking items are presented with beautifully drawn sketches of relevant sections of the source. As a museum book, this catalogue is amply illustrated with 57 black and white plates. A variety of artifacts are described: manuscripts, ostraca, and stelae, and indices round out the utility of this volume. A specialized collection from early Christian Egypt, this book will be welcomed by specialists in Coptic materials still found in their native land.
Walter Ewing Crum (1865-1944) was a noted Egyptologist and Coptologist. He catalogued the Coptic manuscripts of the John Rylands Library and the British Museum. His Coptic Dictionary is still a standard reference in the field.
