      Written by perhaps the most prolific, erudite Egyptologist of the 20th century, this solid guide to hieroglyphics remains the standard introduction. Budge gives the history of hieroglyphic writing, its evolution into hieratic and demotic scripts, and the fascinating tale of its decipherment by Young, Champollion, Åkerblad, and others. Get this from a library! The story of decipherment: from Egyptian hieroglyphic to linear B. [Maurice Pope].

    Jean-Francois Champollion did not correctly decipher Egyptian hieroglyphs. All present dictionaries and translations are wrong--including Young, Gardner, E.A. Wallis Budge, Raymond Faulkner, Wikipedia, etc. The correct decipherment requires enlightenment. Jean-Francois Champollion was not enlightened. This book is a beginner's manual of the Egyptian hieroglyphic inscription. It contains a short account of the decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphics, and a sketch of the hieroglyphic system of writing and of the general principles which underlie the use of picture signs to express thought.

    The decipherment was a complex historical story involving several individuals (so it doesn't fit neatly into the biography of any one of them) and too long and distracting to be a section of the Egyptian hieroglyphs article, which has to focus on the hieroglyphic system as it's now understood. The very first scholar believed to have left a book, now missing, on the whole subject of decipherment, was named by later authors as Jabir Ibn Hayan, (8th century) the famous chemist who was said to have written an encyclopedic work on the decipherment of many ancient scripts including : Rkhty Amen.
