About Volume I: "The first object of the Oriental Institute was the recovery of as much as possible of the surviving evidences of early civilization in the ancient Near East. There is no region where such researches have been more noticeably lacking than the Hittite country of Asia Minor. The recent decipherment of the cuneiform documents of the so-called Hittites has brought us the most unexpected revelations, even including the movements of the prehistoric Greeks, of which the Trojan wars were a part. One of the results of Hittite research will undoubtedly be the further development of our knowledge of the important part played by Asia Minor in the earliest history of civilization, both Greek and Oriental." Volume II synopsis: "The experiences and results of author's fourth year of research work in Asia Minor were in many respects different from those of the earlier years. In 1929 he was able to denote his entire time to exploration." - University of Chicago. Volume II includes an section of itineraries for 1929. (Inventory #: 156046)
