First UK edition of this important monograph, “a collection of documents illustrated by full, ingenious, often brilliant discussions of the problems raised” (ODNB), published shortly after the revolution in the field of Assyriology occasioned by the discovery of the Code of Hammurabi in 1901. Johns (1857-1923) was a noted Cambridge Assyriologist and Church of England clergyman. First published in New York by Charles Scribner’s Sons earlier the same year.

Octavo. Original red vertically-ribbed cloth, spine lettered in gilt, publisher’s device to front board in blind, black coated endpapers. Extremities lightly rubbed, scattered pale marking to sides. A very good copy.
