About this Item

This work is signed and inscribed with pen by one of the authors, acclaimed linguistics professor Domenico Silvestri, on a slip of official paper of the Oriental Studies Department of the University of Napoli, laid in before the title page: "Con multi cordiali saluti. Domenico Silvestri." Beneath his signature, the following is printed: "Prof. Domenico Silvestri - Cattedra di Glottologia. Dipartimento di Studi del Mondo Classico e del Mediterraneo Antico. Istituto Universitario Orientalo, Via Loggia dei Pisano 13 - 80133 Napoli."Large 4to. 90pp., followed by 2 fold-out graphs and ca. 400 unpaginated plates. Grayish brown wrappers with red illustration to front wrapper and red and black lettering to front wrapper and spine. Illustrated title page. Great work on linguistic and language development of the ancient city of Uruk, situated east of the present bed of the Euphrates, on the line of the ancient Nil canal, in a region of marshes, some 30 km east of As-Samawah, Al-Muthann, Iraq. Uruk played a very important part in the political history of the country from an early time, exercising hegemony in Babylonia at a period before the time of Sargon. The Uruk period (ca. 4000 to 3100 BCE) is the protohistoric Chalcolithic to Early Bronze Age period in the history of Mesopotamia, following the Ubaid period. Named after the city of Uruk, this period saw the emergence of urban life in Mesopotamia. It was followed by the Sumerian civilization. The late Uruk period (34th to 32nd centuries) sees the gradual emergence of the cuneiform script and corresponds to EB I. Illustrated throughout with b/w graphs, sketches and tables. Scuffing, rubbing, discoloration to wrappers and spine. In Italian. In very good condition. Part of a series: Annali del Dipartimento di Studi del Mondo Classicao e del Meditteranea Antico. Sezione Linguistica. Series Maior. Quaderno N. 1. Bookseller Inventory # 16227
