Progress ok Egyptology.
A most severe loss to Egyptology lias been incurred in the death of
Professor Diimichen, of Strasburg, at the comparatively early age of
sixty. His was a singular example of devotion to science during thirty-
five years, in the course of which he made journeys to Egypt at his own
expense, collecting a prodigious mass of material. Much of this was
made public in his large works, which issued from the press with sur-
prising rapidity while he retained his health; but much still remains
unutilised. The collection of squeezes and hand-copies have been
generously given by his widow to the Egyptian Institute at Strasburg,
where they will be well looked after.
Heinrich Brugsch has written an interesting account of his own life
and wanderings. Georg Ebers has likewise published an autobio-
F. Ll. Griffith.
