A guide to the Babylonian and Assyrian antiquities (1922)
London: British Museum Press, 1922, 3 ed., xiv+286 p.
Abstract: In this Guide are described the great collections of Babylonian and Assyrian antiquities which have been acquired as the result of excavations made by the Trustees of the British Museum, and by purchase, since the year 1846. These collections cover a period of about four thousand years-that is to say, from about B.C. 3500 to A.D. 500. The chronological evidence which has become available during the 20 years made it necssary to modity the scheme of chronology which was based upon the date given for the reign of Naram Sin on the cylinder of Nabonidue.

The collections consist of sculptures and bas reliefs, and inscribed monuments, boundary stones, gate-socketrs, and bricks bearing the names and titles of the kings who made them; baked clay cylinders and prisms and tablets inscribed with records of the history of the religious, commercial, and domestic life of the Babylonians and Assyrinas; objects which illustrate the art of Babylonia and Assyria , Elam, and the surrounding nations , in bronze, ivory, terra-cotta, and precious stones; and numerous miscellaneous objects belonging to the later periods of the Persian, Greek, Parthian, Roman and Sassanian periods of occupation in Mesototamia.

The descirptions of the sculptures and many other objects have been revised and enlarged, and in the Introduction, which has been rewritten, the results of historical and archaeological research.
