Excerpt from A Catalogue of the Egyptian Antiquities in the Possession of F. G. Hilton Price

The adoption of the Overland Route to India via, Egypt, and the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, have drawn the attention of the civilized world to Egypt to a remarkable degree, and the increased facilities for travel which have been developed in that country during the last twenty-five years have induced thousands of people of all nationalities to visit the land of the Pharaohs. Following in the wake of the ordinary traveller came the philologist and the arch?ologist, and both have returned and proved that the "wisdom of the Egyptians" was no idle dream, and that the wise men of ancient Egypt actually gave the nations of Europe their letters. But while the philologist has been decyphering the mysteries of the hieroglyphics, the arch?ologist and excavator have brought to light by means of the spade inscriptions and texts, objects of art. paintings, statues, etc., the existence of which had never been thought of; and native and European alike have vied with each other in filling our national museums and private collections with ancient Egyptian antiquities of beauty and interest. The objects which are exhibited in public museums are, of course, available for inspection and examination, under certain conditions, by every person at reasonable hours; but private collections are often inaccessible, even to those who have a special interest in the subject of Egyptology.
