London: Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., Ltd, 1925. Hardcover. Includes 36 color plates and 48 in text illustrations. "In these days it is unnecessary to say how bold a German publisher must be, to give so many coloured plates, at a time when with us all economic ideas are upside down. I hope this boldness will be rewarded. When we were excavating Ashur the wish became stronger, with every new find of this coloured Assyrian art, one day to convey the discoveries to posterity complete adn as unaltered as possible. Photography alone did not suffice for this; as far as possible every piece was copied in water-colours immediately after being found, and later we took the trouble to take colour photographs with Lumiere plates" (page 77).
