By A. H. Sayce

 Records of the Past
This is the index page for the series Records of the Past, which published translations of Near Eastern and Ancient Egyptian texts at the end of the 19th century.

This is volume one of the second series of Records of the Past, under the editorship of A. H. Sayce. This volume includes two versions of the Creation epic, today known as the Enuma Elish, and several historical texts, including the Babylonian Chronicles, and the hair-raising Inscription of Tiglath-Pileser I.
