The Cat of Bubastes -- An Illustrated G.A. Henty Novel


Enter the world of Ancient Egypt and Persia--about 1450 B.C through this incredible, beautifully illustrated and interactive Novel by G.A. Henty. Loaded with an incredible number of illustrations and maps, as well as Interactive links into the background and characters of the story--this e-book has it all!

"Imagine living in a nation where killing a sacred cat is a capital offense! The Egypt of Pharaoh Thutmose III, in Moses’ day, was such a land. When Chebron, son of a priest, accidentally kills the sacred cat of Bubastes, his life becomes a series of harrowing adventures, with the only hope of safe haven for himself and his sister being a distant land, which can only be reached after fleeing through closely guarded Egyptian exits. Then they must embark on a challenging journey through unfamiliar lands populated by unfamiliar people and overcome numerous geographical obstacles.

G. A. Henty has produced a story which will give young readers an unsurpassed insight into the customs of the Egyptian empire."

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
