About this Item

Very nice, clean, tightly bound book covered with clear rigid plastic cover for safekeeping. Only fault is sunning to edges of wraps and most especially to spine. Light toning to page edges. Photo illustrated. Concerns the Akkadian tablets purchased shortly after WWI by Lt. Col. J.H. Patterson of the British Army of Occupation in Iraq, which he then dontated to the museum in 1925. The tablets are of historical and anthropological interest, as they were written in a dialect of the Old Akkadian language and date back over four thousand years. With the exception of two letters and some school tablets, the rest concern legal, business and administrative texts. 338 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 16786KA

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
