THE PRECEPTS OF PTAH-HOTEP. Translated by Philippe Virey. The most ancient book in the world, the Papyrus Prisse, now preserved in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, has furnished us with the text of a treatise, famous on account of its antiquity, of the glimpse that it gives us into the moral ideas of ancient Egyptian society, and of the difficulties it offers to the translator.

History of ancient Egypt may sometimes seem very distant, but people living thousands of years ago had many problems and feelings that trouble us today.
