Amelia Ann Blanford Edwards (1831-1892), an English author, artist and Egyptologist, was well known for her travel books, literary fiction, and nonfiction works. She also wrote poetry, stories and articles for periodicals. Today she is best know for her work as an Egyptologist and founder of the Egypt Exploration Fund in 1882 (later the Egypt Exploration Society). Edwards traveled to Egypt in 1873-74 to visit the historic sites. She was appalled by the neglect of the ancient monuments and vandalism by visitors and locals. Upon her return to England, she wrote and illustrated the first edition (1877) of "A Thousand Miles up the Nile", which was very well received and one of the most popular and influential travel books on Egypt.
