Item description for Egyptian Revival in Bohemia (Czech Institute Monographs) by Hana Navratilova...

The book is an introduction to the Egyptian revival in its Czech - and by extension in its central European - context in the 19th and 20th centuries. Unlike the well-known and egregiously documented phenomenon of Egyptomania in both France and Britain, the Egyptian revival in Central Europe has thus far received little attention. The present study takes a closer look at how a part of the former central European Habsburg Empire, Bohemia, maintained relations with both the ancient and the modern Orient. The results of these diverse contacts might not be as imposing or eye-catching as elsewhere in Europe, but they offer a no less interesting look at how different aspects of the Orient were received and perceived in Europe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Egyptian Revival in Bohemia (Czech Institute Monographs)?

Good but very expensive book  Mar 15, 2005
Are you interested in "Egyptomania," 19th Century Egypt, or an unusual chapter in Czech cultural history? If yes, then this book might be for you. It is well written, and employs multi-lingual data from a wide array of published and unpublished sources.

Navratilova gives a introduction to Egypt in the Nineteenth Century, followed by Austrian Imperial interests there, and the role of Czechs as travelers and artistic interpreters of things Egyptian. She backs up her work with nice illustrations, including excellent photographs of Bohemian architecture that was influenced by ancient Egyptian motifs and styles.

I liked this book, but I am fascinated with 19th Century Egypt, and will consider any book on this subject. Am not sure it will find many other homes due to price. If it were a hard back edition, ok, I would have no negative thoughts, but for a small paperback, with mainly copy-right free illustrations and none in color, the price is high. Then again, this is a small press, and the publication costs are also high. In any case, get a copy from your library (or via I.L.L.) and make your own decision, you may end up spending the bucks anyway.
