Excerpt from The Spell of Egypt

Somebody wrote The books that have been written about Egypt, would dam the Nile, and since he wrote it enough more books have been written about Egypt to sink a dahabiyeh in the Father of Waters.

Nevertheless, Egypt, which sometimes seems to have been the beginning of almost everything that plays a part in the contemporary life of man, is always new. The marvel is not the number of books about Egypt, but that so few have been written. Assuming that every book has its topic, there is reason for wondering why the writers of the world ever went beyond that inexhaustible land of topics. A book might be written about every square foot of Egyptian soil, every monument that raises its head above the ground, every cave in its honeycombed mountains, and every ripple upon the broad bosom of the river that gives the country life.
