Here is a short Editor's Preface;
It is not seldom that we are asked why we invest much time and effort, publishing texts from the childhood of our science. All of these early works contain
both serious mistakes and errors. Students must take care and, when possible, professional advice when using this material. The CESRAS Team at
email@example.com is always happy to help you. These historic texts from the Catalogue Général of the National Museum in Cairo are the works of people
who lived in the 19th century, who were there when Egyptology was born. We are dealing with first-hand observations recorded in books to which few
have access. Our purpose and goal is to give all people of all nations equal access to these documents, the words of Egyptology's parents.
