Babylonian Magic and Sorcery by Leonard W. King

By Leonard W. King

Considered one of Leonard King's works from the early days of Assyriology in 1896. This paintings is "The Prayers of the Lifting of the Hand," and represents the cuneiform texts of a gaggle of Babylonian and Assyrian incantations and magical formulae edited with transliterations, translations, and entire vocabulary from capsules of the Kuyunjik collections preserved within the British Museum. Contents: Prayers addressed to: Deities; Gods; Goddesses; Astral Deities; Prayers opposed to the evils; Vocabulary.

I chanced on this model on the web and apparently to be a reasonably decently scanned replica from a library (Kansas urban it seems), as evidenced through the date stamps within the hide. whereas the ISBN references a extra smooth re-print, this seems to be a replica of the unique print.
