Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians by Edward William Lane

Book Description

Few works about the Middle East have exerted such influence as Edward William Lane's "An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians", which was first published in 1836. Many of the editions that have been in print during the past century have lacked parts of Lane's text and many of his original illustrations, they were based on what should have been ephemeral editions. This volume is a reprint of the definitive fifth edition of 1860, the result of a quarter century of Lane's corrections, reconsiderations and additions.

Edward William Lane (1801-76), a name known to almost everyone in all the many fields of Middle East studies, was the author of a number of highly influential works: An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1836), his translation of The Thousand and One Nights (1839-41), Selections from the Kur-an (1843), and the Arabic-English Lexicon (1863-93). In 2000, his long-forgotten manuscript Description of Egypt was published for the first time by the AUC Press. Jason Thompson is an associate professor of history at the American University in Cairo. He is the editor of Lane's Description of Egypt (AUC Press, 2000), and is currently preparing a biography of Lane.
