Review:
   

The recent Schlogl features a colour cover and some colour pictures of shabtis inside the book. Unfortunately, the shabtis featured in this museum and thus in the book are not very pretty nor very rare.
Also, the diversity of the shabtis in the book is limited. The main part of the book describes Late Period shabtis.

As always, the shabtis are well described, pictured at least front and back, usually also from the sides.

Conclusion

This book is only recommendable to the serious shabticollector / museum that wants to have it all.
