The Excavation of Medinet Habu, Volume III, The Mortuary Temple of Ramses III, Part I, Hölscher, Uvo
43 Hölscher, Uvo The Excavation of Medinet Habu, Volume III, The Mortuary Temple of Ramses III, Part I
Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. Univ of Chicago Press 1941 First Edition Buckram Very Good Plus No Jacket Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall 
This is NOT an ex library book. This is Part I only. Published June 1941. Translated from the German by Mrs. Keith C. Seele. Brown buckram heavy-duty binding, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine. Generally unbumped if lightly rubbed spine head and tail, with lightly bumped and rubbed corners. 16 x 12 inches. Text block firmly bound in. T.E.G. With xiii and 87 numbered pages of text, interspersed with numerous B&W figures and also with 40 full-page plates, the first two of which are in color. Many of the plates are of archival photos. To the top corner of the front pastedown, in a very neat and small ink hand, previous owner name and date. Else a clean volume, and rather tight. Respectfully read. No dust jacket [as issued?]. A Very Good Plus copy. With thanks to The Oriental Institute, University of Chicago: "Ramesses III’s great temple complex at Medinet Habu is distinguished from other royal mortuary temples in Egypt above all by the circumstance that much of the temple structure itself still stands and that excavation has made comparatively clear the entire temenos with all subsidiary structures, fortifications, and the like. Thus in Medinet Habu as nowhere else in Egypt are revealed the entire plan of such a large and rich temple complex and to some extent the cult and administration carried on within its walls. This extensive architectural creation of Ramesses III is the subject of Volumes III and IV of The Excavation of Medinet Habu. Each individual structure can really be understood only in its relation to the entire layout. On the other hand, it is impossible to gain an idea of the whole without first understanding the significance of each part. We therefore begin our treatise with a discussion of individual structures and groups of buildings and close with a comprehensive picture of the entire complex. The present volume is concerned only with the structures of the inner temple area, and a description of the Ramesseum is included for purposes of comparison."

The aqueduct is part of the larger Atrush Canal built by the Assyrian king Sennacherib between 703 and 690 BCE to water Ninevah's extensive gardens. The watercourse is believed to have functioned actively for more than 2,000 years. Allegedly the aqueduct was constructed of more than two million dressed stones and using stone arches and waterproof cement. Jerwan is a locality north of Mosul in the Nineveh Province of Iraq. The geographic area corresponds to that inhabited by Yezidis in Iraq, at least until the recent past.

The Athenian Agora, Volume X, Weights, Measures and Tokens, Lang, Mabel; Crosby, Margaret

Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A. The American School of Classical S 1964 978087661210 First Edition Cloth Very Good No Jacket 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
Results of Excavations conducted by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. Printed and presumed bound in Germany. Wedgwood blue cloth binding, with gilt-stamped lettering to the front board and to the spine. 12 x 9 inches. Unbumped spine head and gently bumped tail, with very gently bumped upper corners. Text block firmly bound in. With xii and 146 numbered pages, and followed by 36 full-page B&W plates. An immensely clean copy, and rather tight. Very gently read. No dust jacket [as issued?]. A Very Good copy. Scarce in any condition. Courtesy of ASCSA: "The first part of this book deals with weights (14 bronze, 109-111 lead, 28 stone) and measures (75 dry, 28-31 liquid). Although humble objects, the detailed study of these everyday items provides archaeological evidence for substantial changes in weight standards at different times in Athenian history. This reinforces literary evidence for a highly centralized bureaucracy controlling trade and commerce. In the second part of the book, Crosby catalogues and discusses some 900 lead and 46 clay tokens uncovered during the Agora excavations. The bulk of the lead material dates from the Roman period, while all the clay pieces belong to the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd centuries B.C. These tokens served diverse functions. Some were used as admission tickets for festivals and theater performances while others can be related to attendance at lawcourts or receipt of tax payments."

"Terramara is a technology complex mainly of the central Po valley, in Emilia-Romagna, Northern Italy, dating to the Middle and Late Bronze Age ca. 1700-1150 BC. It takes its name from the black earth residue of settlement mounds. Terramara is from terra marna, marl-earth, where marl is a lacustrine deposit. It may be any color but in agricultural lands it is most typically black, giving rise to the black earth identification of it. The population of the terramara sites is called the terramaricoli. The sites were excavated exhaustively in 1860-1910."
