Books on Egyptology via Sursock Museum Facebook
CAIRO – 29 July 2017: Thanks to a generous donation from American University of Beirut (AUB) library Lebanon's Sursock Museum now has new Egyptology additions in its library.
The Sursock Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving and studying both local and historical art.
First opened in 1961, it's also known as the The Nicolas Ibrahim Sursock Museum, and was known as one of the cultural centers of Lebanon, attracting all kinds of artistic individuals.
The mansion was originally built in 1912 and stands tall as a work of art on its own, being made of fine marble. After the devastating Lebanese civil ran its course from 1970 to 1990, artists were some of the people worst hit, the city's artistic archives were utterly ravaged. The Sursock museum reopened in 2015.
Several of the books featured range from works by famous Egyptian author Naguib Mahfouz to a study of Ancient Egyptian literature.
Rather than focus on just one aspect of Egyptian history, the Sursock museum archives Egypt's rich heritage, showing a level of commitment to collection and preservation that's worthy of attention.
