Pay What You Want
This site runs on the Pay What You Want philosophy. If you can't pay, you can download the books for free. If you can pay, please do so - I'm not some big corporation. I'm just a woman trying to run a small business. I pay for the upkeep of this site, maintain it, and do all the reformatting myself. I'm also trying to make a living from it. So I'm relying on your generosity, and the fact that you'll be fair and pay a fair price for the books you are downloading. If it helps, the average given is around £3.
The Babylonian Story of the Deluge and the Epic of Gilgamish
by E. A. Wallis Budge
This is the earliest known telling of the great flood and pre-dates any Christian reference to the flood (Noah) by thousands of years.
Format: Global Grey edition. Fully formatted with active table of contents, footnotes, and in the PDF version, bookmarks.
Publication Date: 1929
Whilst the workmen were clearing out the Chamber of the Lion Hunt they came across several heaps of inscribed baked clay tablets of "all shapes and sizes," which resembled in general appearance the tablets that Layard had found in the South West Palace the year before. There were no remains with them, or near them, that suggested they had been arranged systematically and stored in the Chamber of the Lion Hunt, and it seems as if they had been brought there from another place and thrown down hastily, for nearly all of them were broken into small pieces.
