A comprehensive illustrated reference guide to Egyptian funerary cones, including the transliteration and translation of the hieroglyphic texts of over 600 examples, together with a note of the tomb number where known. A detailed discussion on theories about the use and purpose of funerary cones, their geographical distribution and other salient aspects also receive attention.

From the Foreword

To see the birth of a book, particularly a useful one written by an enthusiastic and competent person is, to say the least, one of the great pleasures of life. [The authors] undertook extensive research, gathering related data from a wide variety of books, journal articles and even unpublished theses. Such dedication is most certainly admirable and makes the book well researched, reliable and useful.
