BY

SAMUEL SHARPE.

LONDON:

EDWARD MOXON, DOVER STREET.

1838.

[blocks in formation]

TO THE READER.

THE Author has given neither the arguments nor the whole of the authorities on which the sketch of the earlier history in the Introduction rests, as it would have had too much of the dryness of an antiquarian enquiry, and as he has already published them in his Early History of Egypt. In the rest of the book he has in every case pointed out in the margin the sources from which he has drawn his information.

Canonbury, 12th November, 1838.
