Spring is finally here, and the many avid gardeners among us are turning over a new leaf — quite literally, in the case of our compost piles. With that in mind, we bring you four new products from partner Winged Bull Press on the themes of "green" and "compost." Happy digging!

The Royal Outhouses of Ashurbanipal
by Professor P. Spewforth

List Price: $145.00

This series of tablets recently appeared on the antiquities market and was snatched up by Winged Bull Press. Contained on 20 tablets were the actual clay prints (you can't really say blueprints, can you?) for Ashurbanipal's royal outhouses, including permanent and portable models. This edition includes cuneiform hand copy, transcription, translation, and textual commentary. The textual commentary is complete with color swatches, and decorating tips. Also includes an index, artist's reconstructions, and glossary.

Winged Bull Compost Bin 

List Price: $225.00

Fertile minds generate lots of paper. Winged Bull Press has the solution. The great minds at Winged Bull Press have always felt that the Green Press Initiative is a great start, but didn't go far enough. This past year, after numerous market tests and much research, they are proud to announce the solution to messy desks, overflowing inboxes, and the general paper clutter that is so abundant in the academic setting.

Introducing the Winged Bull Compost Bin.

Now available in three models:
BS for "Baby stuff," looks like a copy paper box. Easily fits under a dorm room bunk bed; no handle required, just flip it over every few days. Makes great compost out of those syllabuses you always seem to get each semester.

MS for the graduate student; it handles those monographs you have to accept but will never read, the reading lists for your comprehensive exams, undergraduate exams, all those other things a busy TA and graduate student never has time to look at. Looking suspiciously like an inbox, your students will never know they are actually improving your plants, not just their minds. Expandable, just stack like regular inboxes. If you get over four high, though we recommend the granddaddy of them all:

The PhD, for really piling on the compost. This model will handle the offprints, book reviews, requests for recommendations, committee meeting reports, faculty notes, press releases, etc., that you never seem to have room for. This model looks just like a 2 drawer filing cabinet, complete with handle for turning — just remember to turn the label on the drawers over when you turn it. This model will turn out great compost in less than a semester, so you will always have room for the next semester's onslaught of new... ideas, yeah, that's what they are...

by W. G. Lambert - Babylonian Oracle Questions

Babylonian Oracle Questions
by W. G. Lambert

List Price: $59.50
Your Price: $53.55

The Babylonian tamitu texts are a corpus of questions addressed to the sun-god Shamash and the storm-god Adad jointly. Professional diviners were employed to put the questions with the appropriate rites and to formulate the wording correctly, since the only answer would be "yes" or "no." Thus the questions had to include a detailed exposition of the matter, and they open up intimate glances of things not otherwise available. Kings ask whether they should undertake a certain campaign, laying out a detailed plan of action. At the other end of the scale, a man wants to know whether his wife is telling him the truth. All tablets are of first millennium B.C. date, though some of the questions date from the second millennium B.C. Scribes copied out questions to serve as models for later use.

In this volume W.G. Lambert has gathered together all the known material, including 54 tablets and fragments not previously published. All are given in cuneiform copy, transliteration, translation, with notes and an introduction. By far the greater part of this material has not been edited before.

Edited by Ruth Langer and Steven Fine - Liturgy in the Life of the Synagogue

Liturgy in the Life of the Synagogue
Edited by Ruth Langer and Steven Fine

List Price: $59.50
Your Price: $53.55

From the ancient rabbis to medieval Ashkenaz, from North Africa to Syria, from the United States to modern Israel, the articles collected in Liturgy in the Life of the Synagogue reflect the diversity of approaches and the questions that modern scholars residing in North America, Europe, and Israel bring to bear on the study of Jewish liturgy. The book spans the entire history of rabbinic prayer and presents a diverse array of approaches, ranging from classical methods applied to new topics to today's interdisciplinary approaches.

Contributors include: R. Kimelman, S. Fine, D. Reed Blank, V. B. Mann, S. C. Reif, R. Langer, N. Feuchtwanger-Sarig, M. L. Kligman, J. D. Sarna, J. Tabory, and S. P. Wachs.

by Erle Leichty - The Royal Inscriptions of Esarhaddon, King of Assyria (680-669 BC)

The Royal Inscriptions of Esarhaddon, King of Assyria (680-669 BC) 
by Erle Leichty

List Price: $89.50
Your Price: $80.55

The Royal Inscription of Esarhaddon, King of Assyria (680-669 BC) is the inaugural volume of the Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period Project. The volume provides reliable, up-to-date editions of all of the known royal inscriptions of Esarhaddon, a son of Sennacherib who ruled Assyria for twelve years (680-669 BC). Editions of 143 firmly identifiable texts (which mostly describe successful battles and the completion of building projects, all done ad maiorem gloriam deorum), 29 poorly preserved late Neo-Assyrian inscriptions that may be attributed to him, and 10 inscriptions commissioned by his mother Naqia (Zakutu) and his wife Esharra-hammat are included. To make this corpus more user-friendly to both specialist and laymen, each text edition (with its English translation) is supplied with a brief introduction containing general information, a catalogue containing basic information about all exemplars, a commentary containing further technical information and notes, and a comprehensive bibliography (arranged chronologically from earliest to latest).

The volume also includes: (1) a general introduction to the reign of Esarhaddon, the corpus of inscriptions, previous studies, and dating and chronology; (2) translations of the relevant passages of three Mesopotamian chronicles; (3) 19 photographs of objects inscribed with texts of Esarhaddon; (4) indexes of museum and excavation numbers and selected publications; and (5) indexes of proper names (Personal Names; Geographic, Ethnic, and Tribal Names; Divine, Planet, and Star Names; Gate, Palace, Temple, and Wall Names; and Object Names). The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing transliterations of selected inscriptions arranged in a 'musical score' format.

The Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period (RINAP) series will present up-to-date editions of the royal inscriptions of a number of late Neo-Assyrian rulers, beginning with Tiglath-pileser III (744-727 BC). This new series is modeled on the publications of the now-defunct Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia (RIM) series and will carry on where its RIMA (Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia, Assyrian Periods) publications ended. The project is under the direction of G. Frame (University of Pennsylvania) and is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
