Faulkner, writing in a time before the development of Egyptian typefaces, hand wrote each page of the disctionary in a beautiful neat hand. The disctionary is therefore one of the few works still in publication which could be considered a "hand written book". So what? A million medieval monks spent their times in the copying of concordances and the illumination of bibles. True. But they were working in their mother tongue - Latin for the most part. Faulkner was working in a language which was almost entirely unknown and undocumented. Each one of his entries must therefore have been the result of a small but significant measure of careful scholarship- and one that has clearly stood the test of other academics' critisms. If you are a student of Egyptian, you probably already have this book. But even if you aren't, buy it anyway, because it is one of the most unusual curiosities in the literary world.
