NOTICE. 



TiiE MSS. described in the present List were, for the 
most part, purchased for the Museum by Dr. Budge, 
Keeper of the Eg^'ptian and Assyrian Antiquities, in 
1889 and 1890, at Mosul, Alkosh, and the Tiarl district. 
Prior to these dates about fifty volumes had been 
acquired, and several other volumes have been subse- 
quently brought from UrmI and the neighbourhood. 
It will be seen that, besides a strong element of the 
classical literature of the Syrians, this collection con- 
tains a large number of works written in Karshiini, 
and that it also includes several volumes of Chaldaean 
(Roman Catholic) theology. Special attention may be 
drawn to the examples of modern Syriac literature 
contained in the collection (see more particularly Or. 
4422 and 4423). 

The student may note that the S.P.C.K. collection 
of Syriac and Karshuni MSS. at Cambridge, and also 
the Sachau collection at Berlin, are in many respects 
similar in character to the present MSS. This col- 
lection has also more features in common with the 
Oxford and Paris Syriac and Karsliuni MSS. (see tlie 



IV NOTICE. 

Catalogues of the late Dean Payne Smith and M. 
Zotenberg) than with the Syriac MSS. of the British 
Museum described in the Catalogue of the late Professor 
AVright. 

Thanks are due to Mr. AV. E. Crum, as well as to 
several members of the Museum staff, for much valuable 
help in the identification of the less-known names and 
titles occurrinof in the List.
