Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The El-Amarna Correspondence: A New Edition of the Cuneiform Letters from the Site of El-Amarna based on Collations of all Extant Tablets, Volume 2 contains the table of contents and the preface. Throughout his five-decade academic career, Professor Anson F. Rainey dreamt of writing the definitive work on the El Amarna letters. Over the years, he visited museums over the globe, read all extant tablets, and aided by the advanced technology of the late 20th and 21st century, transliterated and translated the entire collection. The second volume of the book was finished in 1915. It included an extensive commentary by Otto Weber with a glossary by Erich Ebeling. The book has certain similar goals as its predecessor: general comments on each text, collations by this present editor and justification thereof, and a brief bibliographical note on each text.

Keywords: Anson F. Rainey; El-Amarna letters; Erich Ebeling; Otto Weber
