The present stately folio with its accompanying text (translating all the texts in the plates) is the first-fruits of 45 years of intermittent work by the redoubtable Chicago team, alongside their work at Medinet Habu and elsewhere in Karnak. In production and fidelity it worthily upholds the extremely high standards in recording and publishing ancient Egyptian monuments so justly associated with the Chicago epigraphic survey. The Preface (signed by Dr. Wente) contains distinctly more than the expected history of the project and acknowledgments. It incorporates also a valuable summary of some of the more significant results accruing from the full record of Herihor's work in the forecourt of the temple of Khons. As for scope, the present volume contains a record of all wall-surfaces inside that court, other than Herihor's stela and the two great doorways (with later decor), and of all the decorated columns but not the architraves. [From a review by K. A. Kitchen in Bibliotheca Orientalis 38 (1981) 301-02].
