Guide to Users

Although the Bibliography has been arranged in a systematic sequence, it is not necessary for the user to try to understand the way in which the classification scheme has been constructed. The table of contents which lists the order of the civilizations and periods should be a sufficient guide to those who wish to brose. They will also be helped by the running headings on the inner corners of each page which indicates the main period and subject. The arrangement of subjects is the same under each period section and follows that used in Volume 3 (Subjects); a list of main subject headings used in this volume, together with a list of form and aspect subdivisions follows. The full schedules may be found at the end of Volume 4. To avoid fragmentation in presentation, the subheadings have been omitted unless the number of entries renders them desirable. Classmarks are given to enable those who require information on a particular topic to go direct from the subject index (at the end of Volume 5), to the relevant entries. If the topic is very specific, there may be no entry under it in the index because there is no special section on the topic in the Bibliography. In that case, reference should be made to a more general heading. For example, although the word ‘copper’ does not appear in the index there may be information on its history in the sections on ‘metals’ or ‘metallurgy’. Having found the code or classmark (a sequence of numbers and letters) in the index, the user should turn to the body of the Bibliography. The code in the left-hand upper corner of each page is the classmark of the first item on the page, whereas that in the right-hand upper corner refers to the last item. Some classmarks may seem lengthy (necessitated by the number of concepts represented), but to find the required entry very often it will only be necessary to remember or note down the digits and the first two letters.


The codes in this volume are composed of numbers (never more than two), and capital and lower case letters. The numbers represent the ivilizations and periods, the capital letters A-Y the main subject divisions, and the lower case letters a-x the form and aspect subdivisions; y is used to form compound subjects, z for extending the subject alphabetically. It must be emphasized that, although the codes form a shorthand analysis of the contents of the entry, the notation does not reflect the hierarchy of the classification; it is oridinal. Frequently, one number represents a main period division or one capital letter a main subject, but this is not always the case. Thus 15 stands for the Ancient Near East, yet the subsection Israel is denoted by 2. Similarly, although earth sciences has a two letter code FZ, meteorology is represented by G.

The codes are arranged first in the order of the numerals (on the decimal principle), then in alphabetical order of capital letters and thirdly in alphabetical order of the lower case letters. A stop must be imagined after the first digit and after the

[Start of page viii]

capital letters so that 15 (1.5) files before 2 and Bce (B.ce) files before BAce (BA.ce). The hyphen, which is used to separate two sets of codes, is considered like a stop in filing. Usually, the numerals are followed by capital letters, succeeded where necessary by lower case letters, but in the earlier periods and most of the oriental civilizations where there is a small amount of general material preceding the subject section the numerals are followed by lower case letters and these codes file before those in which the numerals are followed by capitals.

Full explanatory notes on the subject and aspects classification are in Vo,ume 3, pages 621-31. A note on the order of the civilizations and periods may be found on page viii of Volume 4.


1: 2: and 3 For references to Volumes 1, 2 and 3 of the ISIS CUMULATIVE BIBLIOGRAPHY the form 1: 2: or 3 followed by the page number is used.
: The colon,:, after a number indicates the volume in references to articles in periodicals.
[CB 81/256] This signifies that the original entry is Isis was followed by an annotation or a review which can be found in Isis Critical Bibliography no. 81, p. 256.
* Readers are advised that the entry in the Cumulative Bibliography may be in a different form from that in the Isis Critical Bibliography. It was, of course, essential to make the cataloguing consistent and we have followed the Anglo-American Cataloguing Rules (North American Text).
A table correlating the numbers of the Critical Bibliographies with the volume numbers of Isis is on page xviii.

Abbreviations used for periodicals will be found on pages xv-xci of Volume 3. A short list of Addenda is on p. xvi of Volume 4. Standard bibliographical abbreviations are used in the entries. The form of entry is explained in detail below.
