Content: Shabtis in the Etnografik Museum Oslo from all periods
This edition of the Corpus Antiquitatum Aegyptiacarum focuses on the shabtis in the Oslo museum. It’s a nice overview of shabtis from all periods (which can not be said from all CAA series. A lot of Cache 2 shabtis are represented in this catalogue, making it extra interesting for the Cache 2 lovers (me!).
The pictures are all B&W unfortunately and I dislike the loose-leaf character.
The book is in the English language, which is welcome to most collectors.
A recommendable shabti-book, like all CAA’s on shabtis, especially for shabticollectors and shabtilovers. Not of interest for the general reader of Ancient Egypt.
