The idea of issuing a newsletter dealing with excavations of the city of Memphis and its extensive necropoleis, and with research on New Kingdom Memphis in general, was born during a CNRS colloquium on Memphis et ses nécropoles au Nouvel Empire held in Paris from 9 to 11 October 1986. The first issue, produced by the late Alan Schulman, appeared two years later, but lack of funds (and of regular contributions) and the fact that the internet soon made a paper newsletter redundant meant that the newsletter turned out to be a short-lived affair.
Since the three existing issues were dispersed privately among the small group of scholars directly involved in research on New Kingdom Memphis and Saqqara and not many libraries hold copies of them, these issues are made available here in pdf form.
