EGYPT! What wondrous pictures are conjured up by that magic word ! Scenes of white-robed priests moving in solemn procession through columned aisles to the sound of stately music ; of shining warriors massed in dense array upon the burning plain, or charging irresistibly into the foeman’s ranks ; of royal pageants wherein King and Queen, bedecked in silks and cloth of gold, embroidered with a mine of gems, pass through the crowded lines of their acclaiming subjects ; scenes of light and life and colour, which cannot fail to rouse our admiration, even our awe : such are some of the pictures that rise before us at the sound of the mystic name.

The author has captured this grandeur in his stories of legends of this ancient nation.
