Review of: The Letters of Peter le Page Renouf (1822-1897), edited by Kevin J. Cathcart, 4 vols. (University College Dublin Press, 2002-2004).

"Less well-known than either his predecessor Samuel Birch or his eventual successor Ernest A. Wallis Budge, the Egyptologist and Orientalist Peter le Page Renouf was Keeper of the Department of Oriental Antiquities at the British Museum from 1886 to 1891. These four volumes of correspondence shed much interesting new light on his life."
