This eleventh volume of the Oxford Editions of Cuneiform Texts contains autograph copies of all 143 Akkadian and Sumerian literary texts and fragments still unpublished in the Ashmolean Museum, including a number of miscellaneous texts inscribed on the reverse of lexical texts as school exercises. Gurney provides transliterations and translations of some of the better preserved pieces, among which are an Old Babylonian hymn to Amurru, three Old Babylonian incantations, a fragment of a Babylonian state ritual, and an expository text on the cultic calendar. The text is supplemented with 45 pages of black and white illustrations of the tablets.
