Description


British archaeologist and Egyptologist (1874-1939) whose discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in Egypt's 'Valley of the Kings' proved to be one of the signal events in the history of archaeology. Howard Carter's personal leatherbound address book, 6.75 x 5.5, signed on an opening page with his ownership signature, "Howard Carter, 2 Princes Gate Court…Ken. 6077," bearing his writing on more than 40 pages as he records the names and addresses of his associates. Among the notable names in the book are the Duke of Alba, New York's Brummer Gallery (antiquities dealer), the Earl of Carnarvon (sponsor of the excavation of King Tut's tomb), the Egyptian consul, Otto Gutekunst (art dealer), Battiscombe Gunn (Egyptologist), Horace Rumbold (diplomat), Alexander Scott (chemist), Selim Bey Hassan (Egyptologist), and others. In very good to fine condition, with wear to the covers, and dampstaining to the back cover and final half dozen pages of the book; interior pages are otherwise clean and fine.
