About this title


This volume publishes all of the cuneiform tablets excavated at Tell Abu Salabikh in 1963 and 1965 with the exception of a very few fragments considered illegible. All other tablets are represented by a copy, by a photograph, or by both. Except for the copies of especially fragile tablets made in the field, preliminary copies were prepared from casts and photographs. Subsequently they were checked against the original tablets in the Iraq Museum.

Terms of Sale:

BOOKS SHIPPED WITHIN MISSOURI are subject to a 8.450 sales tax. Books shipped outside of the US are subject to a small surcharge.

Shipping Terms:


Orders to be shipped outside the US can be paid for either a) through ABE, in which case there will be a surcharge of about 5-10% due to the very high postal shipping charges by the U.S. Post Office, and the fact that ABE's fees apply both to the price of the book and the shipping; or, b)you can pay by way of PayPal, in which case there is no surcharge.  If you choose to pay via ABE I will inform you of the amount of the surcharge as an 'extra charge,' which you can either accept or cancel the order.

 Domestically, you can order the book through ABE, and if possible, pay via PayPal or through ABE.

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Since recent changes in postal rates, shipping overseas has become very expensive and the cost unpredictable, depending as much on size and shape of a book as weight.  The matrix prices are very unreliable.  All packages now go Priority Mail (airmail).  Contrary to the matrix, there is no 'standard' rate offered by the post office here.  In general (there are exceptions)smaller books (octavos) weighing less than 4 pounds, can generally be shipped for $24.75.  Larger books, in general, are $61.75 though this price may be a bit higher or lower.  Shipping to Canada is considerably less. Please contact me before ordering and I will send you the actual shipping cost.  Please do not rely on the matrix. Also, all books now go Air Mail, and the Post Office estimates delivery in 6-10 days.  There is no longer any ground service.  Insurance (where available) is optional.
