"History buffs, art buffs, and archaeology buffs alike with love this book."--Fine Books & Collections Magazine

"The catalogue makes the courageous decision to concentrate on the writing tablets themselves...[these] are probably Mesopotamia's principal claim to greatness. Behind the measurements, observations and formulae of many of these texts lies an intellectual achievement which is as remarkable as anything in the ancient Near East, and which may well be the starting point for much of the Greek legacy to our own world." -- Times Literary Supplement
