The Egyptian Coffin Texts, Volume 6: Texts of Spells 472-787

"The Coffin Texts form the missing link between the Pyramid Texts and the Book of the Dead. These texts are an expression of the Egyptian desire for immortality and the deep influence of the mortuary religion of the pharaohs. This volume presents careful copies and comparison of all available duplicate texts of Spells 472-787."
