Egypt (La Mort De Philae) 

by Pierre Loti 

Translated from the French by 

W.  P.  BAINES 

CHAPTER I 

A WINTER MIDNIGHT BEFORE THE GREAT SPHINX 

A night wondrously clear and of a colour unknown to our climate; a
place of dreamlike aspect, fraught with mystery.  The moon of a bright
silver, which dazzles by its shining, illumines a world which surely
is no longer ours; for it resembles in nothing what may be seen in
other lands.  A world in which everything is suffused with rosy color
beneath the stars of midnight, and where granite symbols rise up,
ghostlike and motionless.
