Reprint of the leading book on the methods of stone construction in Egypt from the beginnings at the pyramid complex of Djoser at Saqqara in 2700 B.C. through the pyramids of the Old and Middle Kingdoms to the hypostyle hall at Karnak and other buildings. The book covers the production, quarrying, and transport of stone and tools used in the buildings, and combats speculative literature on how the builders solved certain technical problems.
