    Victor Loret's discovery of KV35--the tomb of Amenhotep II--on March 9'th, 1898, revealed another cache of royal mummies to the world.  But in addition to the bodies of ancient Egypt's royal dead, Loret also found a number of antiquities, mostly in a fragmentary state, scattered around the chambers of the tomb. Although in a damaged condition, these objects constituted one of the largest collections of royal funerary objects to be found in the Valley of the Kings up to that time. Overshadowed by the more complete funerary ensembles of Maiherpri, Yuya and Tuyu, and finally eclipsed completely by the dazzling (and intact) treasures of Tutankhamen's tomb, the KV 35 objects are not well known today to the general public.
    In 1902, the Service des Antiquities de L'Egypte published Georges Daressy's Catalogue General des Antiquites Egyptiennes du Musee du Caire: Fouilles de la Vallee des Rois (click here to see title page) which catalogued the antiquites discovered in KV 35 and provided photographs of them. Very few of the photographic plates which appear in this catalogue have been reproduced, and the work itself has been out of print for years and is very difficult to find. The plates presented here were scanned from the Smithsonian Institution's copy of Fouilles de la Vallee des Rois, and I would like to thank them for allowing me to borrow and utilize this valuable work for the Theban Royal Mummy Project. I also wish to thank the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (especially the McKeesport branch) for their aid in helping me obtain this rare book via interlibrary loan.
