New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1987. Hardcover. VG- (Average wear to dj edges; average light soiling to dj; former owner name and year on first page; otherwise clean.). Royal blue cloth, dark turquoise textured paper dust jacket, 498 pp., no illus. "Sumerian, the oldest language known, is represented by hundreds of thousands of clay tablets inscribed in the cuneiform writing system. Most of these tablets, which are far more durable than any modern form of document, are devoted to mundane matters -- ration lists, annual accounts, deeds, contracts -- but a substantial number contain examples of perhaps the earliest poetry extant. In this volume, the eminent Assyriologist Thorkild Jacobsen presents translations of some of these ancient poems, including a number of compositions that have never before been published in translation."
