Reader's note

Get your dose of ancient history with this beautifully illustrated first edition King Penguin monogram on the Mesopotamian city of Ur--one among a bounty of classic books and gorgeous vintage Penguin books on our 2nd hand bookstore!

'Nearly all the plates in this book illustrate treasures found in the Royal Tombs of Ur. But when faced with a strange and ancient civilisation which could produce works of art so rich and technically perfect, we naturally ask how it arose; and so the text deals mainly with the history of Ur before the time of the Royal Tombs. That really means the early history of the land of Sumer, or southern Mesopotamia; and if in what follows little but Ur is mentioned, it must not be forgotten that our historical knowledge is derived from many sources and from the labours of many archaeologists on many sites.'
