Ceci est, par définition, un texte bilingue en français et en assyrien (ou suméro-accadienne).This is, by definition, a bilingual text in French and in Assyrian (or Sumero-Akkadian).

A Very Good Minus copy. Julius (Jules) Oppert [1825-1905] was a French-German Assyriologist. In 1851 he joined the French archaeological mission to Mesopotamia and Media under Fulgence Fresnel. Over the course of the years, his professional attention was chiefly given to Assyrian and cognate subjects. His book, Grande inscription du palais de Khorsabad, treats of the period of Sargon II, king of Assyria [reign 722-705 BCE]. Sargon II est le fondateur de la dynastie des Sargonides qui régnera sur l'Assyrie. Conquérant d'Israël, de Cilicie et de Babylone, vainqueur des Hittites et des Egyptiens, Sargon II est l'un des grands rois de cette époque. Il fait édifier son palais à Dur-Sharrukin, Khorsabad, sa construction mobilise tout l'empire, les vassaux sont mis à contribution et la richesse ainsi accumulé assoit d'autant le pouvoir du roi.

Ce n'est pas une édition bilingue. Texte en français uniquement, pas en anglais. Couverture souple. Ecole française d'Athènes. Ëtudes Crétoises, XXVII. Tomes premier et second. This is not a bilingual edition. Text in French only, not in English. This is Volume 1 & 2 of Part I, Le Quartier Nord. 11 x 9 inches. Two somewhat large and heavy paperbacks with pale brown wrappers. The plain wrappers are printed in black lettering. Unbumped spine head and tail, with sharp corners. As New and unread; indeed, still in the original shrinkwrap. Un siècle après les tentatives d'A. Joubin pour explorer le site révélé par les découvertes d'un marchand crétois, Minos Kalokairinos, il revient à un autre Français de reprendre l'étude des ruines d'un des monuments les plus importants de la protohistoire égéenne. Fouillé par l'archéologue anglais A. Evans de 1900 à 1905 pour l'essentiel et publié de 1921 à 1935 2, le palais de Cnossos a fait l'objet d'études nombreuses depuis lors, particulièrement le dernier état lié à l'occupation mycénienne et à la présence des tablettes inscrites en linéaire B. La question qui portait sur la datation de cet état a été, on le sait, au centre d'une vive polémique qui divisa la communauté scientifique il y a une vingtaine d'années. La générosité de nos collègues anglais, qui ont donné à l'A. accès à toutes les archives de la fouille, déposées à l'Ashmolean Museum d'Oxford, est tout à fait remarquable et mérite d'être signalée.

No dust jacket present. A Very Good Plus copy. This book presents and comments upon praise-songs for the ancient Sumerian kings. With thanks to Wikipedia for the following: Sumerian is the language of ancient Sumer and a language isolate which was spoken in southern Mesopotamia (modern Iraq). During the 3rd millennium BC, a very intimate cultural symbiosis developed between the Sumerians and the Akkadians, which included widespread bilingualism. The influence of Sumerian on Akkadian (and vice versa) is evident in all areas, from lexical borrowing on a substantial scale, to syntactic, morphological, and phonological convergence. This has prompted scholars to refer to Sumerian and Akkadian in the third millennium as a Sprachbund (area of linguistic convergence). Akkadian gradually replaced Sumerian as a spoken language around 2000 BC (the exact dating being a matter of debate), but Sumerian continued to be used as a sacred, ceremonial, literary and scientific language in Mesopotamia until the 1st century AD. Then it was forgotten until the 19th century, when Assyriologists began deciphering the cuneiform inscriptions and excavated tablets left by these speakers.
