These proceedings describe the relationship across hundreds of years between Austria and Egypt and the resulting impact on art and science. Articles, in German or English, trace the transition from mathematics to Egyptology, describe the contributions of Alfred von Kremer to cultural exchange and diplomacy, and examine the work of German physicians and scientists in Egypt in the nineteenth century. Other papers include biographies of Leo Reinisch and Amon Ritter con Lauring, interpretations of grave ornaments, and descriptions of Egypt's influence on Czech and Moravian literature, Czech self-perception in travelogues, mutual travel clubs, motifs on Czech tombs, linguists mutually searching for the uniform origin of language, migration patterns, German contributions to Islamic archeology, and silent cinema sphinxes. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co.
