    First published in 1994. The term 'Canopic', as applied to the containers employed by the Egyptians to contain the embalmed internal organs of the deceased, derives from a case of mistaken identity. The aims of this monograph are primarily archaeological and historical, to document all canopic equipment attributable to the kings of Egypt, and to discuss each element in its spatial and temporal context. Translations of all available texts are provided, but no attempt is made to discuss them from a detailed religious or philological standpoint.

    Part 1: The old kingdom; the middle kingdom; the second intermediate period; the new kingdom; the third intermediate period; the Kushite and Saite dynasties. Part 2: The catalogue; the texts; concordances; bibliography and lists of works cited.
