About this Item

Folio. [2]pp (title page), 73 loose plates (of 75). Original printed wrappers. Publisher's logo on title page. This work of the first magnitude provides material for theological, historical, and linguistic studies. It gives the reader an insight into a peculiar civilization built up in a remote corner of the ancient Egyptian empire. The documents excavated and deciphered include private letters, lists, legal texts, a literary piece (The Words of Ahiqar) and the Bisitun inscription of Darius I. They reveal the presence on the island of Elephantine and on the mainland (Syene) of a Jewish military colony serving Persian interests, and they illustrate in detail what life was like on this southern border of the Persian Empire which ruled "from India to Nubia" (Est. 1:1). 2 plates (out of 75) are missing (plates #8 and 75). Back cover missing. Front cover age-toned, creased and partly chipped along edges. Moderate and sporadic age-toning, closed tears and creasing throughout. Plates 4 and 42 taped at verso. Upper margin of plate 6 partly chipped (not affecting image). Title and captions in German. Wrappers in overall poor, interior in fair to good, plates in good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37331
