Author Info

Toby Wilkinson is professor of Egyptology and deputy vice chancellor at the University of Lincoln. Hailed by the Daily Telegraph as "the foremost Egyptologist of his time," he is the author of ten books on the history and culture of Egypt. His prize-winning history The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt (2011) was recommended as a book of the year on both sides of the Atlantic. Julian Platt has been an international publisher for fifty years, three early years of which were spent in East Africa, and was founder in 1999 of Third Millennium Publishing. Most of his working life has been passed in London, not far from the St Johns Wood home of his great uncle, but he otherwise lives in Northumberland. The authors met through their membership of Clare College Cambridge and in 2012 traveled up the Nile with a college party and a copy of Ferdy Platt's letters to hand.


“To read [these letters] feels like lifting the lid on the stifling world of the Edwardian aristocracy.” - Daily Mail
