Wallis Budge states in the introduction: “This volume contains full descriptions of 2,891 royal Egyptian Scarabs, Cylinder-seals, Seal-amulets, etc….

Cassirer dated 1953 to the end-paper, neat ownership stamp of Nicholas Reeves to the verso of title, a good copy of the most important catalogue of Royal Scarabs.
