Summary

Originally published in 1849, this early work by traveller, archaeologist and collector Sir Austen Henry Layard is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details the religion, art and military of the ancient city of Nineveh. This is a fascinating read for anyone interested in the history of the Neo Assyrian Empire and its culture. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
