From the Editor's Note:

"This is the first pictorial account of the 1922 discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb since the illustrated newspapers of the day carried the story as it happened.Fortunately for those who missed the original coverage, Harry Burton's 1400 glass negatives made in and around the tomb over the course of six years have been preserved at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.A selection of prints from them is presented here in the order they were made.

"For the text I have borrowed from The Tomb of Tut-Ankh-Amen by Howard Carter and A. C. Mace, first published in 1923.Who better than Carter, who discovered the tomb, could describe the pictures that were made as his excavation progressed?The captions not otherwise credited are in his words.I have culled the other caption material from letters to and from those involved in the find and from the mass of contemporary press clippings."
