Babylonia and assyria. Examples of racial types. This volume deals with the myths and legends of Babylonia and Assyria, and as these reflect the civilization in which they developed, a historical narrative has been provided, beginning with the early Sumerian Age and concluding with the periods of the Persian and Grecian Empires. He then obtains from the box, of which it is the guardian, the book of spells; when he reads a page of the spells he knows what the birds of the sky, the fish of the deep, and the beasts of the hill say; the book gives him power to enchant "the heaven and the earth, the abyss, the mountains and the sea".

I found the book thorough and useful for comparative narratives
that many cultures shared. The old Testament used some of them as
well. The book illuminates the reader of the ideas that the Babylonians and Assyrians held in their culture. There is historical material as well that verifies names and places in the Bible and fills in details. This is a useful book for readers of the Old Testament and even helps the reader to understand some New Testament material.

The best thing about this book is the *style*. It presents history and mythology -- it presents facts -- in a wonderful style I could only describe as "Lovecraftian".
Look at this:
"To our fathers until well-nigh a century ago Babylon was no more than a mighty name -- a gigantic skeleton whose ribs protruded here and there from the sands of Syria in colossal ruin of tower and temple. But now the gray shroud which hid from view the remains of the glow and glitter of their ancient splendour has to some extent been withdrawn," -- "The name 'Babylon' carries with it the sound of a deep, mysterious spell, such a conjuration as might be uttered in the recesses of secret temples."

This is like reading the *original* works that Lovecraft sought to imitate. "colossal ruin of tower and temple"! such poetry in a book that's supposed to be scholarly, that's supposed to teach and enlighten, strives to do so with such a style! This book is full of names of places and kings that are not boring because they have the same ancient and mysterious sound that Lovecraft strove to give his creatures -- Cthulhu and such. Tiglath-pileser, Assur-nazir-pal. nice!

lol, look at this, talking about cuneiform: "the literature which this peculiar and individual script has brought down to us is chiefly religious, magical, epical, and legendary." What a *marvelous* description of cuneiform! the "peculiar and individual" is down-right Lovecraftian in *style*, while the listing of what this language was used for is, although true, worthy of Lovecraft's *fiction*.
makes me almost want to live in Babylon.
