Series: Service des Antiquites de l"Egypte: The Egyptian Deserts. Volume II of a set of books outlining artifacts found in the Bahria (or Bahariya) Oasis in northern Egypt, southwest of Cairo. Volume I was released in 1942; and the author, a noted archaeologist, intended for a third volume to complete the set. If this was done, it may not have happened until 1974, when his book on this oasis and the Farafas Oasis was published in 1974, after his death.
