* The above three, are probably considered the biggest three early Mummies, that you stand decent chance of getting your hands on. That being said neither were imagined in a vacuum. Egyptomania and fascination with Mummies were old enough to be parodied by Poe. There most certainly are other mummy stories, but given where they were most often published, having remaining copies of such mediums are now rare.

* ''Film/{{The Mummy|1932}}'' (1932), the original Franchise/UniversalHorror classic starring Creator/BorisKarloff as the mummy Imhotep. As the TropeMaker, [[UnbuiltTrope this occurred before many of the common mummy plot elements were introduced]], so the titular Mummy is intelligent and speaks (pretending to be a 20th century Egyptian), doesn't stay in wrappings after he wakes up, doesn't shamble, and generally acts like an ancient sorcerer rather than a creature.
* It's Universal's 1940s Mummy films (featuring a different mummy named Kharis, most frequently played by Lon Chaney, Jr.) that [[TropeCodifier really set up the trope standards]], starting with ''Film/TheMummysHand'' and continuing on through ''The Mummy's Tomb'', ''... Ghost'', and ''... Curse''.
