This book is a designed to be an introduction to early Egypt. There are chapters on prehistoric Egypt, the Predynastic period, the Archaic period, and the Old Kingdom. Considerable time is spent examining Egyptian art, and the graphics are excellent. As an added bonus, there are two pages that contain diagrams of the interiors of the various pyramid, something I have seen nowhere else.
I highly recommend this book.
