GEORG EBERS
An Egyptian Princess
Georg Moritz Ebers, a great Orientalist and Egyptologist, was born in Berlin onMarch 1, 1837, received his first instruction at Keilhau in Thuringen, thenattended a college at Quedlinburg, and finally took up the study of law atGöttingen University. In 1858, when his feet became lame, he abandoned thisstudy, and took up philology and archæology. After 1859 he devoted himself almost exclusively to Egyptology. Having recovered from his long illness, hevisited the most important European museums, and in 1869 he travelled toEgypt, Nubia, and Arabia. On his return he took the chair of Egyptology atLeipzig University. He went back to Egypt in 1872, and discovered, besidesmany other important inscriptions, the famous papyrus which bears his name."An Egyptian Princess" is his first important novel, written during his illness,and published in 1864. It has gone through numerous editions, and has beentranslated into most European languages. It was followed by several othersimilar works of fiction, of which "Serapis" achieved wide popularity. Ebersdied on August 7, 1898.
