The first monograph was published in 2011. Though nineteen volumes have been appeared, the project “Egyptian Texts series” is still developing, the work on the new books is ongoing; in the long term, it is intended to publish more than thirty volumes: a full collection of texts from all periods of Ancient Egyptian history translated for Russian readers. The books include an up-to-date discussion and Russian translations of the Egyptian records dating to the extended period; the selected texts are preserved on different types of sources: funerary stelae, obelisks, statues, papyri, graffiti. Both earlier and recent editions of the monuments have been studied; a major part of the inscriptions are photo collated. Some volumes are in German and English, moreover, publication of the sources and transliteration of the inscriptions under discussion facilitate understanding of the text for Egyptologists who do not read Russian. The books are available both in the libraries of the world’s largest universities and museums and free in pdf. format.
