New ISAW Library Titles: June 2016

By Gabriel McKee

A list of books added to the ISAW Library in June 2016 is now available online on the ISAW Library Website. The titles are sorted in the website version according to thematic topics (e.g., "East Asia" and "Ancient Near East & Asia Minor"); and within each topic, the titles are organized according to Library of Congress classification. The authors and titles of works in non-Roman languages are given in their original script. This list is also available in a Zotero library.

Included among the 393 items added in June are a number of journals and series on Egyptology and papyrology, including the most recent volumes of The Bulletin of the Australian Centre for Egyptology (BACE) (Oak Collection DT57 .B845 v.25 2014), The Bulletin of the Egyptological Seminar (BES) (Oak Collection DT57 .B85 v.17 2007 & v.18 2008-2009), and The Oxyrhynchus Papyri (Reference 3 Collection PA3315.O83 O86 1898 v.82). Also added this month was a complete run of the Cahier de Recherches de l'Institut de Papyrologie et d'Égyptologie de Lille (CRIPEL) (Oak Collection: DT57 .C125 no.1 1973-no.29 2011-2012, plus several supplements shelved separately), containing four decades of papyrological scholarship.

This month’s new titles also include an extensive collection of publications on the Hittite language, including over thirty installments of the series Studien zu den Boğazköy-Texten (StBoT) (Small Collection P945.S65 Heft 1-56). Chinese history and archaeology are well represented as well, with many recent excavation reports as well as essential older editions of texts and reference works, like the 8-volume 中國歷史地圖集 = The Historical atlas of China (Reference 5 Collection G2306.S1 Z55 1982 v.1-8) and a 14-volume edition of the文獻通考 (Wenxian Tongkao) (Reference 5 Collection DS735.A2 M323 2011 v.1-14), a comprehensive historical text by the Yan period historian Ma Duanlin.

We’ve also added dozens of titles on the Caucasus, mostly from the collection of Nina Garsoïan, and several recent archaeological publications on the Ancient Near East, including Seymour Gitin’s two-volume work The Ancient Pottery of Israel and its Neighbors (Large Collection GN799.P6 A52 2015 v.1-2), Nimrud: The Queens’ Tombs by Muzahim Mahmoud Hussein (Large Collection DS70.5.C3 H87 2016), and the first issue of the new journal Studia Eblaitica (Oak Collection DS94.5 .S774 v.1 2015).
