This large volume presents a catalogue of 115 shabtis, or funerary statuettes, that are now held in private collections across Europe. The study stands out in particular for its high-quality lifesize colour photographs which illustrate the back and front of each shabti. The catalogue, which is arranged chronologically from the Middle Kingdom to the Ptolemaic period, includes transcriptions and translations of hieroglyphic inscriptions, descriptions of condition and provenance and a discussion of comparative examples and their location. Line drawings in the appendices illustrate types, hand positions, implements, baskets, amulets and positions of text. The CD presents full colour images of the shabtis.
