University of Chicago Press, 1993. Hardcover. The translation into English of the groundbreaking work on proto-cuneiform. From the jacket: 'Using the latest philological research and new methods of computer analysis, the authors have for the first time deciphered much of the numerical information. In reconstructing both the social context and the function of the notation, they consider how the development of our earliest written records affected patterns of thought, the concept of number, and the administration of household economies. Complete with computer-generated graphics keyed to the discussion and reproductions of all documents referred to in the text, Archaic Bookkeeping will interest specialist in Near Eastern civilizations, ancient history, the history of science and mathematics, and cognitive psychology.'
