The ancient structures of Egypt, especially the pyramids,
have ever been regarded with the most profound interest.
Travellers and historians find in them an everlasting theme
for description. Geometricians also find in their designs,
magnitude and dimensions, much matter for scientific
speculations ; and the mystic inspired by their age, grandeur,
and mystery, is disposed to gather from their every feature
some more or less fancifully conceived revelation or miracle.
