Spar 540 p., 220 x 285 mm, 2001 ISBN: 978-2-503-50927-3 Languages: English Hardback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 80,00 How to order? This series of scholarly publications focuses on the collection of cuneiform tablets and inscriptions in the Metropolitan Museum's Department of Ancient Near Eastern Art. These objects were acquired largely during the 1880s, when the Metropolitan became the first American museum to collect a substantial number of cuneiform texts. Today the Museum's holdings total about six hundred texts and fragments. The four volumes in this series will make these texts available in a manner that will instruct and inform as wide an audience as possible. Cuneiform Texts in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Volume 3 : Private Archive Texts from the First Millennium B.C., co-authored by Ira Spar and Eva von Dassow with contributions by J.N. Postgate and Linda B. Bregstein, admits us to the private worlds of several of the leading financial families of Babylon during the Neo- and Late Babylonian periods of Mesopotamian history and illuminates the management and investment practices of family-run Babylonian enterprises. Four Assyrian tablets included here illustrate business practices during Neo-Assyrian times as well. The 164 texts and fragments that comprise the Museum's holdings from private family archives written during the first millennium B.C. are presented in a format that includes copies, transliterations, translations and commentary together with drawings, photographs, and commentary on stamp seal, cylinder seal and ring impressions.

Mayor, A Hyatt und Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, N.Y.): Life in America. The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, N.Y.). [New York : The Museum], 1974.
Zustand: leichte Gebrauchsspuren, Ecken etwas angestossen, Einband gering berieben, gutes Exemplar. Metropolitan Museum of Art engagement calendar for 1975. Text/Sprache: Englisch. Our former calendars have ranged over many themes, sometimes surveying broad subjects like portraits, flowers, animals, gardens or medieval goldsmithing; sometimes concentrating on a single artist like Rembrandt or Hokusai, or even narrowing still more onto the illustrations of a supreme book in the Metropolitan Museum's collections. Now, as we get ready for the Bicentennial, we explore what the Metropolitan's collections can show about the way people have lived for two centuries in the wide lands that have combined into the United States. lt is an apt time to look back, for we have come a long way since 1905, when Edith Wharton wrote The House of Mirth, where a fashionable young New York girl talks to a fashionable young man .....

Corpus of Cuneiform Texts in the Metropolitan Museum of Art CCTM 2 Corpus of Cuneiform Texts in the Metropolitan Museum of Art II Literary and Scholastic Texts of the First Millennium B.C I. Spar XLIV+490 p., 220 x 285 mm, 2005 ISBN: 978-2-503-51740-7 Languages: English Hardback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 80,00 How to order? This important scholarly work is volume two in a series of four volumes that will publish all the more than six hundred cuneiform tablets in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Included are 106 religious, scientific, scholastic, and literary texts, written in Sumerian and Akkadian and primarily dated to the latter part of the first millenium b.c. They shed new light on the civilization of the ancient Near East - on its complex beliefs and customs and surprisingly vast knowledge of mathematics and astronomy - for both the contemporary scholar and interested reader. The texts are organized in five sections: Documents of the Temple Cult include hymns and prayers, rituals and petitions; Documents of the Incantation Priest, Diviner, Physician, and Magician reveal various categories of omens; Literary Texts present myths and legends; The Scholastic Tradition contains a variety of texts and lists, including mathematical and astronomical texts; and the final section covers Unidentified Fragments. Among the most important texts are No. 42, a fragment of the Babylonian version of the ancient Flood story, and No. 81, which attests to the intellectual achievement of Babylonian astronomers. Eighteen distinguished international scholars in the field have contributed transliterations and translations of each tablet, and these are accompanied by commentaries and by insightful introductory essays on each genre. The volume was assembled and edited by Ira Spar, Professor of Ancient Studies at Ramapo College of New Jersey, and W. G. Lambert, Professor Emeritus of the University of Birmingham, England. Lambert also contributed several entries and a general introduction that provides contextual information about the transmission of the literary and scholastic tradition in pre-Hellenistic Mesopotamia. The precise facsimile drawings of every tablet hand-made by Ira Spar are a valuable visual accompaniment to the text. This publication reaffirms the Museum's ongoing commitment to promote wider knowledge of Ancient Near Eastern civilization. And significantly, it appears at a time when better understanding of the history and culture of that region of the world holds particular relevance. Volume one of this series (1988) documents 120 tablets, cones, and bricks from the third and second millenia b.c. Volume three (2000) covers private archive texts from the first millenium B.C. Volume four, in preparation, will include an edition of cuneiform tablets written in the first millenium b.c. and inscriptions on bricks, cylinders, and prisms of royal records of the kings of Babylon and Assyria.
