From the publisher’s description:

This book presents 125 previously unpublished Neo-Sumerian archival texts from the period around 2030 B.C.E. found in three different sites in southern Iraq. The cuneiform documents, hand-copied by the late Carl H. Lager, are accompanied by detailed indices and explanatory notes by Daniel Snell that guide the reader to relevant bibliography on each lexical item and personal name that ppears in the texts. The book also provides a complete list of proper names and a generous glossary of vocabulary entries.
