At last, an English dictionary of Egyptian hieroglyphics. This monumental work—long out of print, a very hard and rare book to find—was prepared by one of the foremost Egyptologists of the century. It contains nearly 28,000 words or terms that occur in hieroglyphic texts dating from the Third Dynasty through the Roman period, roughly from 3000 B.C. to 600 A.D. It is the only complete English dictionary available anywhere. For students, teachers, collectors, libraries, museums or anyone seriously interested in deciphering ancient Egyptian writings, magical formulas or inscriptions for themselves, this book is a must!Arranged alphabetically, each entry consists of the transliteration of the word, the word in hieroglyphs, the meaning in English, and often, a literary or other textual source where the word can be found. The entries in the 915-page main dictionary include all the gods and goddesses as well as other mythological beings, the principle kings of Egypt, and geographical names. Professor Budge also gives in the beginning a full list of the most frequently used hieroglyphic characters arranged, after the manner of printers' Egyptian-type catalogues, by pictorial similarity (men, women, gods and goddesses, parts of the body, animals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, plants, sacred vessels, weapons, measures, etc.) with phonetic values and meanings when used as determinatives and ideographs. Reference alphabets or syllabaries for Coptic, Hebrew, Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopic, Amharic and Persian cuneiform are also here.The secondary aids are quite extensive (over 550 pages worth) and most useful. In the second volume, there's an index of English words with 60,000 entries. This forms an extremely handy English-Egyptian glossary. Also included in this volume are hieroglyphic lists of royal and geographical names (with separate indexes to these lists), and indexes of Coptic and non-Egyptian words quoted in the dictionary itself (with a separate section for non-Egyptian geographical names).The long, scholarly and informative introduction outlines the history of the decipherment in Europe of Egyptian hieroglyphs and lexicography (citing such pioneers as Akerblad, Young, Champollion le Jeune, Birch, Lepsius, Brugsch, Chabas, Goodwin E. de Rougé, and others), explains the principles of the present work, and offers a full bibliography. Everything you need to study hieroglyphs is in these two volumes.

First, let me say this. Yes, there is a volume II that is sold separately, and you can find it on Amazon. The ASIN is B006Z18QWW.

When I decided to take up learning Egyptian hieroglyphics, I got rather frustrated with all the reviews about which book I should learn from. Everybody criticized Budge for being "outdated", but many didn't really elaborate on what they meant. The best argument they could provide, it seemed, was that he was made fun of in the movie Stargate. Really? This is a justified argument? Stargate is a science fiction movie. It also claimed that the Egyptian pyramids were built by worms from outer space (though technically, we didn't learn they were worms until the television series). Though I've heard an interesting and possibly plausible theory that the pyramids are older, I think most archaeologists would laugh at you if you proposed they were built by aliens, worms or otherwise.

I did find one review that made more sense that said that more has been learned about Egyptian hieroglyphics since Budge's time, and it seems now that modern linguists have different ideas about the spelling of the hieroglyphics. I checked out one book from the library and compared it to Budge. I've not gotten further than the alphabet, but even that has shown some differences. One symbol that Budge claims represents the letter u is now considered to represent the letter w. Another symbol that Budge claims represents the letter i is now considered to represent the letter y. However, they also claim that depending on the circumstances, these letters will sound like "u" or "i" (though they can also sound like "w" and "y"). It seems maybe Budge is guilty of spelling phonetically. As one reviewer said--the one I trusted more--Budge will teach you how to spell wrong, and that is why he discouraged beginners from learning from Budge.

So why did I buy this dictionary anyway?
1) I have not heard anyone say that Budge translated wrong--except the people, perhaps, who use Stargate as an example. If the only disagreement is that a symbol he said was the letter u is now the letter w...but he got the order of the symbols correct and the translation of the word they represent correct, that is really all I care about.
2) Budge is user-friendly. I checked some of the books that people recommended. I found many of them to be a little too technical and confusing for a beginner.
3) Budge is cheaper in price. Now, if you are going to buy volumes 1 & 2 at the same time, then you might consider buying one of the other more reputed sources...though, as I said, I didn't find some of them very user-friendly. However, these books can get expensive. One of the recommended books costs $400.00 when I checked.
4) Guess who has published the most? Budge. People complain about Budge being outdated, and yet none of the new people have bothered to produce as many published translations. And that might be why:
5) Budge is still used as a reference by many scholars, so he can't totally be a joke.

In the end, whether you should buy Budge depends on why you want to learn hieroglyphics. Are you planning to become an Egyptologist or linguist or take any job where you are going to be translating hieroglyphics? If the answer is yes, then it may be better if you learn from one of the reputed sources. Are you certain that you will keep with this or is it just a passing fancy? If you don't know whether you are going to keep at this, I would advise purchasing Budge. This dictionary has 580 pages in the first volume. It is cheaper than many of the reputed sources and should test how deep your interest is. If you do learn hieroglyphics, what sources are you going to rely on in finding translations? If you are going to rely on published books to provide you opportunities to translate...as I've said, it seems Budge is the major author out there. So learning Budge will help you to translate the major source of translations out there: Budge. Are you a person that can relearn something if you are taught old information? If yes, then it isn't a big deal if you learn from an outdated source.

As for the dictionary itself. It is reprinted, so you aren't getting an old copy if you buy it new. I like how Budge makes a list of commonly used hieroglyphics at the front. He divides them into categories so if you are searching for a symbol, it is easier to find it--providing if you know what it is. He draws the symbols as they appear on a papyrus. As for the dictionary part, he uses the Egyptian alphabet. He seems to lists words by the symbol they start out with. I don't know if this is a good source for learning grammar, and it is possible when I get to that I probably will invest in a reputed source. Right now, I'm not sure if this isn't a passing fancy myself, and I'm just concentrating on learning words.

When you start the study of the language of Khemet Land (Egypt) you will find too much didactic material inside the web. Many of them very interesting. One of this things is how professional egyptologists of today are rejecting almost all the books made by E.A. Wallis Budge, but in special his two volume dictionary of Hieroglyphic.
Yes, there is one better than those ones, like Faulkner's dictionary, but this is very expensive. Budge's ones has a principal problem, the transliteration system is not the standard used by Allan Gardiner's Grammar but with some of study you should easy understand both system, in movies is more probably you can watch Budge's system than Gardiner's, and in old books in the web you sure be found with old Budge's system and not with Gardiner's, except in moderns transliteration. In comparison with Allan Gardiner Vocabulary in the end of his great grammar, Budge's Dictionary is more "friendly" with "user", if you bought both volumes, of course.
Gardiner's Vocabulary has less words than Budge's Dictionary, but printed signs in Budge's are better than Gardiner's Vocabulary. About the meaning, I should recognize Gardiner's is now the more accepted and more "near" according with the experts, even Faulkner's dictionary has the same transliteration system of Gardiner's, but problem with Faulkner, beside of its price, is his handwrite style printing, I hate this.
I prefer read printed system as Budge's dictionary. My advice is if you only want pass a good time learning Egyptian as a hobby, you should spend any few dollars and buy both volume of Budge's Dictionary, and complement this ones with web information, but if you want to be a professional, better is to follow their indications about the best books to buy. I'm not a professional in ancient language, buy I like too much read books. First volume is blue with Anpu (Anubis) burial ritual scene with 154 page to learn some history about deciphering of hieroglyphics and the first part of dictionary (A-KH), this explain Budge's transliteration system and a comparison with Champollion's system and Samuel Birch's Dictionary beside and big reference of others works of Egyptologist. Second volume (KH-T) has a list complete of Kings, a English words cross reference index and Geographic Names in Egyptian, Hebrew, Syriac, Arabian and Acadian-Sumerian correspondences. Really to buy both volume are a good acquisition for good readers.
About the printed editions Dover's books are very quality even you buy a second hand ones, good quality paper, and very nice colorful cover (green in second volume with a nice drawing), good and readable fonts, for the price, and if you like adventures and feel like Indiana Jones, I recommend this dictionary.

Budge was a ground breaker. Since his scholarship, new information has been found which changes the way he looked at hieroglyphs. But, his basics are still commendable. If you are learning Egyptian hieroglyphs, there is no better source than Budge. He includes glyphs that more modern authors don't even mention. So, once you get past the basics, Budge is still your best resource.

I like the book very much but it is not easily read using a Kindle Fire 7 HD screen & all of my attempts at "reformatting" proved unsuccessful. This is most likely a problem with working from plates that are generally inconsistent with the aspect ratio of the device, but some sort of a controllable "happy" medium may simply not achievable in any case.

I was too busy converting my Budge collection to digital when I purchased this volume. I wish I had taken the time to look at it before I purchased it. After I downloaded and opened it most of the pages are discolored and poorly rendered making it very hard to read.

It also crashes my Kindle app every time I try to search the document.

I hope that sometime they will make a better quality version available.

This and the second volume are very poorly produced. The pages are yellow and poorly rendered and there is something wrong with them as I can't even search the document without my kindle app crashing.

I should have known this was a sub-standard edition when they couldn't even be bothered to include an actual cover.

Very good book
This works with another dictionary I have. I have to learn to use this, especially the English to hieroglyph portion of the dictionary.
