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). The Assyrian appears variously in cuneiform and Romanization. Also occasional Hebrew, English, German and Latin. Note that this volume is an excerpt and consists of the Commentaire Philologique section of the book, the heart of the book. Not included are the introductory chapter, pp. [5]-26; the Supplément, pp. 259-300; and the Vocabulaire, pp. 301-347. Presumed first edition, 1863. Ex library but with few ex library markings. Red linen-like buckram binding, with crisp gilt-stamped lettering to the spine. Call number in white to the spine tail. Generally unbumped spine head and tail, with fairly sharp upper corners and moderately bumped lower corners. 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Text block firmly bound in. This volume consists of pages [27]-257, the entirety of the philology commentary section. Front pastedown with very small call number and 'withdrawn' stamp. Small 'withdrawn' stamp and number in ink at the bottom of the first text page. Rear pastedown with remnant of card pocket. Slight age darkening to the pages. Else a clean copy, and fairly tight. 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.
