THE welcome which has been accorded to the volumes of this Series, and the fact that some of them have passed into second and third editions, suggest that these
little books have been found useful by beginners in Egyptology and others. Hitherto the object of them has been to supply information about the Religion, Magic,
Language, and History of the ancient Egyptians, and to provide editions of the original texts from which such information was derived. There are, however, many
branches of Egyptology which need treatment in a similar manner in this Series, and it has been suggested in many quarters that the time has now arrived when the
publication of a series of groups of texts illustrating EGYPTIAN LITERATURE in general might well be begun. Seeing that nothing is known about the authors of Egyptian
works, not even their names, it is impossible to write a History of Egyptian Literature in the ordinary sense of the word. The only thing to be done is to print the
actual works in the best and most complete form possible, with translations, and then to put them in the hands of the reader and leave them to his judgment.
