Description

A Victorian poetic translation of the saga of Izdubar. Izdubar is a literal translation of the ideograph for 'Gilgamesh', and was how the hero of the Gilgamesh saga was known when this book was written in the 1880s. A lexicographic tablet was finally discovered several decades later in which Izdubar was equated with Gilgamesh.

This book has 201 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1884.
