IN this book the legends of the Gods of ancient Egypt have been retold. Legends, which were current in the "morning of the world," preserved to the present day engraved on stone and written on papyri. Legends like The Princess and the Demon, The King's Dream, The Coming of the Great Queen, The Book of Thoth, The Legend of Osiris, The Scorpions of Isis and many more.

These legends have been told in a way that only Margaret Murray could retell them, adhering strictly to the story, but arranging the words and phrases according to the English language; but retaining, as far as possible, the expressions and metaphors of the Ancient Egyptians.

The book is intended in its entirety for consumption by the general public, but especially for those interested in the religion and civilisation of ancient Egypt. Though the book is intended for the unscientific reader, some provision for the more serious student has been made in the Notes at the end. In these the origin of the legend has been provided including the book or books in which that original is published, and the book where the translation into a modern language by one of the great scholars of the day can be found. Also included is an index of the names of the Egyptian gods.

33% of the net profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the Egyptian Exploration Society.
