ISAW Library New Titles: February 2018

By Gabriel McKee

A list of books added to the ISAW Library in February 2018  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 and as a browsable map created using Google Fusion Tables. [Update, February 2021: Our new map interface is online. The February 2018 map is available here.]

Of note in the 372 items added to the ISAW Library’s collection in February are a large run of the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum (SEG) (Small Collection PA27.S8),  an annual bibliography and summary of newly-published Greek inscriptions. Prior to February, the ISAW Library had held only recent volumes of the SEG, but now, thanks to a kind donation from ISAW’s Leon Levy Director Emeritus Roger S. Bagnall, we hold a nearly-complete run of the publication going back to its first volume, published in 1923.

The history and archaeology of the Silk Road are well represented in February’s new titles, including several items from the library of Susan L. Beningson. New items on Western China and Central Asia include:

  • The Old Uyghur Āgama fragments preserved in the Sven Hedin collection, Stockholm (Silk Road studies XV), edited by Yukiyo Kasai, Simone-Christiane Raschmann, Håkan Wahlquist, Peter Zieme (Large Collection BQ1018.U54 O43 2017
  • 실크로드와한국문화동방의빛을따라서 = A search for the light of the East--Silk road and Korean culture, 경주세계문화엑스포2000조직위원회 (Large Collection DS903 .K99 2000
  • 絲綢之路与西北經濟社會研究 = Studies of the silk road and the society and economy of Northwest China, 李明伟著 (Small Collection HC427.92 .L56 1992)
  • シルクロードとガンダーラ: 開館 5周年記念特別展 = Silk Road & Gandhara : the fifth anniversary of Matsudo Museum : special exhibition, [編集松戶市立博物館] (Large Collection N7307.G3 S55 1997

February’s new additions also included a number of works on numismatics, papyri, and the archaeology of the Levant, among many other subjects.

As always, the titles added to the ISAW Library for the entire academic year may be found both on our website and in our Zotero library. You can also follow our progress on Facebook and Twitter.
