The Book of the Dead is the title now commonly given to the great collection of funerary texts which the ancient Egyptian scribes composed for the benefit of the dead. These consist of spells and incantations, hymns and litanies, magical formulae and names, words of power and prayers, and they are found cut or painted on walls of pyramids and tombs, and painted on coffins and sarcophagi and rolls of papyri. This book is the treatise and analysis of The Book of the Dead, (also known as Spells of Coming and Forth by Day), by Egyptologist E. A. Wallis Budge

An abridged and illustrated edition of Budge's classic translation, now considered a bit out of date. The plates are very nicely done, if some are a bit small, and most of the footnotes from the original edition have been cut for clarity. Nicely done, but could've used some more or the original material and made some of the detail pictures a little larger and placed closer to the translated text. ( )

Okay, this was an amazing read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, an it made everything so much clearer about how the Ancient Egyptians viewed death and the afterlife. I highly recommend this as a read. ( )

This book is excellently researched and fascinating. Well worth reading if you are interested in the Ancient Egyption Gods. ( )

In the film, "Stargate," Daniel Jackson said, "Someone must have been using Budge. I don't know why they still print it." He was, of course, referring to Budge's Dictionaries of Ancient Egyptian, but the same might be said for his translation of Ani's "Book of the Dead."

In his time, Budge was an important Egyptologist, and no one can deny that he advanced the study of Ancient Egypt significantly. But his time was 100 years ago, and enormous strides have been made in the study of the Ancient Egyptian language. If you're interested in seeing the current state of the art, then I suggest that you get a copy of Gardiner's translation. It is based on the Budge's unsurpassed photographs of Papyrus Ani; however, today, Gardiner's grammar of Ancient Egyptian is what almost all modern, English-speaking Egyptologists use, together with Faulkner's Dictionary of Middle Egyptian.

Why do I have this book? Easy. Once upon a time, before I studied Ancient Egyptian (which happened before Stargate was released), I thought Budge was the only game in town. I keep it around to remind me that there was once a time when we didn't know what we do now, and in memory of the man who helped create and maintain the British Museum's splendid collection. ( )

This was intended for Egyptologists. It is not for people who are simply interested in Egypt and Egyptian Myth and Religion. He has also fallen out of favor with modern Egyptologists because his translations are not sufficiently specific to the time period of these books. ( )

There is no single ancient Egyptian work called The Book of the Dead. Instead, there were collections of "spells" (about 200 altogether) written on papyrus and buried with the deceased to help on the journey to the next life.
No single papyrus contains all the spells. Thanks to many reprints, the most common translation available is by E. A. Wallis Budge; published in 1898. Since then, many other funerary papyri have been translated (and it's also be noted that some of Budge's translation was just plain wrong). Subsequent translations by Thomas George Allen (1968) and Raymond Faulkner (1972, sometimes attributed to Carol Andrews or Eva von Dassow the editors) are much more up-to-date and contain better supplemental material. The different translations should not be combined.
