Was more like a reference book, than a good read. But it must hold a wealth of information. This book is fascinating.
It is what the ancient Egyptians believed and a lot of it we still believe in present day religion. A reasonably well presented facsimile of the of the Edition.
The half plate reproductions are just acceptable with a large lens. The original text is dated and of course highly questionable.
It is a book that will join a number of other Budge originals and copies in my library. None of these books sadly contain the printing history of the publications, and this last one, once again has no title on the spine!

Make no stand against me when testifying, thrust me not back before the Tchatchaut i. Thou art my Ka, the dweller in my body, uniting?
Thou shalt come forth to the happiness to which we advance. Make not my name to stink with the officers [of Osiris] who made men, utter no lie against me before the Great God, the Lord of Amentt.
In very truth the heart of Osiris hath been weighed, and his soul hath borne testimony concerning him; according to the Great Balance his case is truth i.
No wickedness hath been found in him. He did not filch offerings from the temples. He did not act crookedly, and he did not vilify folk when he was on earth.
The Osiris, the scribe Ani, true of voice, hath testified. Let there be given unto him offerings of food and an appearance before Osiris, and an abiding homestead in the Field of Offerings as unto the Followers of Horus.
His heart is righteous [and] hath come forth from the Balance. It hath no sin before any god or any goddess. Thoth hath set down his judgment in writing, and the Company of the Gods have declared on his behalf that [his] evidence is very true.
Let there be given unto him of the bread and beer which appear before Osiris. Let him be like the Followers of Horus for ever! There is no sin in my body.
I have not uttered a lie knowingly. Grant that I may be like the favoured or rewarded ones who are in thy train. When the soul in its beautified or spirit body arrived there, the ministers of Osiris took it to the homestead or place of abode which had been allotted to it by the command of Osiris, and there it began its new existence.
The large vignette to the CXth Chapter shows us exactly what manner of place the abode of the blessed was. In one part of it were several small islands, and on one of them Osiris was supposed to dwell with his saints.
He was introduced into the Sekhet Heteput a section of the Sekhet Aaru, i. One corner of this region was specially set apart for the dwelling place of the aakhu , i.
Here we see them occupied in producing the celestial food on which they and the god lived. Some are tending the wheat plants as they grow, and others are reaping the ripe grain.
Their truth shall be reckoned to them in the presence of the Great God who destroyeth sin. Take ye your rest because of what ye have done, becoming even as those who are in my following, and who direct the House of Him whose Soul is holy.
Ye shall live there even as they live, and ye shall have dominion over the cool waters of your land. I command that ye have your being to the limit [of that land] with Truth and without sin.
As the Wheat-god he would satisfy those who wished for a purely material, agricultural heaven, where hunger would be unknown and where the blessed would be able to satisfy every physical desire and want daily; and as the God of Truth, of whom the spiritually minded hoped to become the counterpart, he would be their hope, and consolation, and the image of the Eternal God.
This Hymn is supposed to be sung by the deceased, who says: Thou risest, thou risest; thou shinest, thou shinest at the dawn. The Company of the Gods praise thee at sunrise and at sunset.
Thou sailest over the heights of heaven and thy heart is glad. Thy Morning Boat meeteth thy Evening Boat with fair winds. Thy father is the Sky-god and thy mother is the Sky-goddess, and thou art Horus of the Eastern and Western skies.
O thou Only One, O thou Perfect One, O thou who art eternal, who art never weak, whom no mighty one can abase; none hath dominion over the things which appertain to thee.
Homage to thee in thy characters of Horus, Tem, and Khepera, thou Great Hawk, who makest man to rejoice by thy beautiful face.
When thou risest men and women live. Thou renewest thy youth, and dost set thyself in the place where thou wast yesterday. O Divine Youth, who art self-created, I cannot comprehend thee.
Thou art the lord of heaven and earth, and didst create beings celestial and beings terrestrial. Thou art the God One, who camest into being in the beginning of time.
Thou didst create the earth, and man, thou didst make the sky and the celestial river Hep; thou didst make the waters and didst give life unto all that therein is.
Thou hast knit together the mountains, thou hast made mankind and the beasts of the field to come into being, and hast made the heavens and the earth.
The fiend Nak is overthrown, his arms are cut off. O thou Divine Youth, thou heir of everlastingness, self-begotten and self-born, One, Might, of myriad forms and aspects, Prince of An i.
As thou risest thou growest greater: Thou art unknowable, and no tongue can describe thy similitude; thou existest alone. Millions of years have passed over the world, I cannot tell the number of those through which thou hast passed.
Thou journeyest through spaces [requiring] millions of years [to pass over] in one little moment of time, and then thou settest and dost make an end of the hours.
They shout praises of him in his form of Tem i. Thou didst rise and put on strength, and thou settest, a living being, and thy glories are in Amentt.
The gods of Amentt rejoice in thy beauties or beneficence. The hidden ones worship thee, the aged ones bring thee offerings and protect thee.
Their eyes follow thee, they press forward to see thee, and their hearts rejoice at the sight of thy face. Thou hearkenest to the petitions of those who are in their tombs, thou dispellest their helplessness and drivest away evil from them.
Thou givest breath to their nostrils. Thou art greatly feared, thy form is majestic, and very greatly art thou beloved by those who dwell in the Other World.
Thou art the Governor of gods and of men and hast received the sceptre, the whip, and the rank of thy Divine Fathers. Let thy heart in Amentt be content, for thy son Horus is seated upon thy throne.
Thou makest fertile the Two Lands i. Homage to thee, King of kings, Lord of lords, Governor of governors, who from the womb of the Sky-goddess hast ruled the World and the Under World.
Thy limbs are as silver-gold, thy hand is blue like lapis-lazuli, and the space on either side of thee is of the colour of turquoise or emerald.
Thou god An of millions of years, thy body is all-pervading, O dweller in the Land of Holiness, thy face is beautiful.
The gods come before thee bowing low. They hold thee in fear. Life is with thee. I have come to the City of God, the region that is eternally old, with my soul ba , double ka and spirit-soul aakhu , to be a dweller in this land.
Its God is the Lord of Truth. I have come unto thee, my hands hold Truth, and there is no falsehood in my heart. Thou hast set Truth before thee: I know on what thou livest.
I have committed no sin in this land, and I have defrauded no man of his possessions. Chapter I was recited by the priest who accompanied the mummy to the tomb and performed the burial ceremonies there.
In it the priest kher heb assumed the character of Thoth and promised the deceased to do for him all that he had done for Osiris in days of old.
Chapters II—IV are short spells written to give the deceased power to revisit the earth, to join the gods, and to travel about the sky.
The text of Chapter VI was cut on figures made of stone, wood, etc. The shabti figure, , took the place of the human funerary sacrifice which was common all over Egypt before the general adoption of the cult of Osiris under the XIIth dynasty.
About ushabtiu figures were found in the tomb of Seti I, and many of them are in the British Museum. May this god be at peace with me.
Destroy the things that are obstacles between us. Give me peace, and remove all dissatisfaction from thy heart in respect of me.
I am the Only One. I came into being in Nu the Sky. He existed on the height of the Dweller in Khemenu i. These addresses formed a very powerful spell which was used by Horus, and when he recited it four times all his enemies were overthrown and cut to pieces.
