ISAW Library New Titles: May 2018

By Gabriel McKee

A list of books added to the ISAW Library in May 2018  is now available online on the ISAW Library website. The titles are sorted in the website version according to thematic topics (e.g., "China, South Asia, & East Asia" and "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 now live. The map for May 2018 is available here.]

285 items were added to the library's collection in May. Included among these was the donation of a complete run of the Journal of Roman Archaeology from the library of the late Alan Cameron. We are grateful to Prof. Cameron's family for their gift of this important publication. Significant runs of other journals were also added to the collection this month, including the following journals on Armenian and Byzantine history from the library of Nina Garsoïan:

Pottery, and classical pottery in particular, was also a focus of May's new acquisitions. We added several volumes of the series Roman and Late Antique Mediterranean Pottery to the collection:
