Murnane: Battle Reliefs of King Seti I at Karnak

SAOC 42. 
W. J. Murnane. 
Originally published in 1985.
An exploration of the significance of the wars of Sety I and of the general pattern of Egyptian-Hittite relations, which culminated first in the battle of Kadesh and finally in the treaty enacted during the reign of Ramesses II. 

SAOC 42, 2nd Edition. 
W. J. Murnane. 
Originally published in 1990.

The volume also serves as a useful companion to Reliefs and Inscriptions at Karnak, Volume 4: The Battle Reliefs of King Sety I, Oriental Institute Publications 107.

The Epigraphic Survey. 
Originally published in 1986.
This volume presents the famous Karnak war scenes engraved by order of Sethos I. These have been well known (after a fashion) through the venerable works of Champollion, Rosellini, Lepsius, and, latterly, Wreszinski; but the present work must rank as the definitive publication of these reliefs. Study of these reliefs raised so many issues that the major editor of this work (W. J. Murnane) found it necessary to publish a separate monograph (The Road to Kadesh: A Historical Interpretation of the Battle Reliefs of King Sety I)
