Kings of Ancient Egypt,

The Pharaoh: Life at Court and on Campaign
This is a very useful and extremely readable survey of the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, containing both a history of the Pharaohs and much interesting information on the position of the Pharaohs in Egyptian society and their daily life, from details about the coronation and burial to sleeping arrangements and pets. It usefully contains a section on the post New Kingdom period which is often not covered very fully. There is a helpful appendix giving the names, dates and dynasties of the Pharaohs and the book is very fully and well illustrated. It is a most helpful guide both for the specialist and the general readers.
