Helsinki Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia 2010 9514110404 / 9789514110405 Hardback Very Good+ with No dust jacket as issued 
Please note this is a heavy item and may incur extra shipping charges for international orders.; Blue paper covered boards, photo illustrated front cover, vol 3 part 1, corners sharp, no inscriptions, unmarked, b & w plates. The Indus Script is the writing system developed by the Indus Valley Civilization and it is the earliest form of writing known in the Indian subcontinent. The origin of this script is poorly understood: this writing system remains undeciphered, there is no agreement on the language it represents, no bilingual texts have been found thus far and its connection with Indian writing systems proper (e.g. Brahmi, Devanagari and Bengali script) is uncertain. This is the main reason why the Indus Valley Civilization is one of the least known of the important early civilizations of antiquity.

Yale University Press 1918 Hardback Poor 
P, green boards with brown cloth spine - at least in theory. It's fairly beaten-up but nonetheless all of a piece, bumped and frayed and stamped by the 'British Drama League' as it is. It's also a little loose at the spine. Text is bright, as are the b&w illustrations. Fielding is writing in his early twenties here, yet to harness the genius shown in his later novels. ; 8.9" x 6.2" x 0.9"; 223 pages
