The Hieroglyphic Sign List is part of Museum Tours’ series “The Essentials” books that anyone serious about the study of Egyptology will find useful. This paperback version of the Hieroglyphic Sign List was developed as an outgrowth of Museum Tours’ popular, pocket-sized Sign List book. By increasing its size we were able to overcome most of the limitations of the smaller book. It is not just a larger version of the spiral bound book. It has been completely re-edited and updated. Definitions have been expanded. Sign descriptions have been added. More relevant examples have been included. Words have been spelled out in glyphs as well as in transliteration. In order to maintain ease of use, the order and the numbering generally follow the sign list in Gardiner’s Egyptian Grammar. From Museum Tours Press
