GOLDING, William. An Egyptian Journal. London: Faber and Faber, 1985.
8vo. Original black cloth with lettering in gilt to spine; pictorial dust wrapper; illustrated with colour and black and white photographs, many of which are by the author; pp. 207; wrapper and upper edge is a little sun faded, with some offsetting of the title to the upper cover; price on dust wrapper has been covered with small tippex mark; previous ownership inscription to ff end paper; pages are a little browned. Still a very good copy.
First edition. William Golding's interest in ancient Egypt has previously been expressed in two essays, and in the novella "The Scorpion God". This account covers his journey down the Nile in today's Egypt. He recalls his trip honestly and humorously, and shares his feelings about Egypt past and present.
