Riddle of the Rosetta Stone, The


Author: Giblin, James Cross
ISBN: 9780064461375 Publisher: Harpercollins Childrens Books

The author has done a masterful job of distilling information, citing the highlights, and fitting it all together in an interesting and enlightening look at a puzzling subject." ÑH. "The social and intellectual history here are fascinating. A handsome, inspiring book." ÑK.
