About Author

E.A. Wallis Budge was born in Bodmin, Cornwall to Mary Ann Budge, a young woman whose father was a waiter in a Bodmin hotel. Budge's father has never been identified. Budge left Cornwall as a young man, and eventually came to live with his grandmother and aunt in London.

Budge became interested in languages before he was ten years old, but given that he left school at the age of twelve in 1869 to work as a clerk at the firm of W.H. Smith, it was only in his spare time that he studied Hebrew and Syriac, with the aid of a volunteer tutor named Charles Seeger. Budge became interested in learning the ancient Assyrian language in 1872, when he also began to spend time in the British Museum. Budge's tutor introduced him to the Keeper of Oriental Antiquities, the pioneer Egyptologist Samuel Birch, and Birch's assistant, the Assyriologist George Smith. Smith helped Budge occasionally with his Assyrian, whereas Birch allowed the young man to study cuneiform tablets in his office and obtained books of Middle Eastern travel and adventure such as Sir Austen Henry Layard's Nineveh and Its Remains for him to read from the British Library.

In the year 1894, Dr. Wallis Budge prepared for Messrs. Kegan Paul,

Trench, Trübner & Co. an elementary work on the Egyptian language,

entitled "First Steps in Egyptian, " and two years later the companion

volume, "An Egyptian Reading Book, " with transliterations of all the

texts printed in it, and a full vocabulary. The success of these works

proved that they had helped to satisfy a want long felt by students of

the Egyptian language, and as a similar want existed among students of

the languages written in the cuneiform character, Mr. L.W. King, of the

British Museum, prepared, on the same lines as the two books mentioned

above, an elementary work on the Assyrian and Babylonian languages

("First Steps in Assyrian"), which appeared in 1898. These works,

however, dealt mainly with the philological branch of Egyptology and

Assyriology, and it was impossible in the space allowed to explain much

that needed explanation in the other branches of those subjectsthat is

to say, matters relating to the archaeology, history, religion, etc., of

the Egyptians, Assyrians, and Babylonians. In answer to the numerous

requests which have been made, a series of short, popular handbooks on

the most important branches of Egyptology and Assyriology have been

prepared, and it is hoped that these will serve as introductions to the

larger works on these subjects. The present is the first volume of the

series, and the succeeding volumes will be published at short intervals,

and at moderate prices.
