Latham based this Revised Word-List on a re-examination of the material previously used, and supplemented it with new material from a wide range of sources -- more than doubling the number of words covered"--Jacket

Dictionary of medieval Latin from British sources by R. E Latham( Book )

12 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in English and Latin and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dictionary of Medieval Latin from British Sources (DMLBS) is the most comprehensive dictionary of Medieval Latin to have been produced and the first ever to focus on British Medieval Latin. Covering a particularly long period stretching from Gildas (fl. 540) to William Camden (1600), it is wholly based on original research, that is to say on the close reading of thousands of Medieval Latin texts, both literary and documentary. This has been carried out specifically for the purpose of recording their distinctive lexical characteristics, and, as far as possible, using the best available sources, whether original manuscripts or modern critical editions. It is also based on systematic searches within computer databases, including the Library of Latin Texts (LLT-A and LLT-B), where many of the texts can be found that make up the sources for the DMLBS

Studies in the ancient history of Northern Iraq by David Oates( Book )

8 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a facsimile reprint of the trail-blazing book by David Oates which has been out-of-print far too long. It is primarily the report of his survey and excavation of sites in northern Iraq between 1954 and 1958. But it is at the same time a memorial to the great explorer, Sir Aurel Stein, whose pioneer field-work on the Roman frontiers in Iraq in 1938-39 had provided the initial stimulus. Apart from preliminary summaries, this work remained unpublished in the difficult years between 1939 and Stein's death in Kabul in 1943." "Subsequent examination of Stein's draft-manuscript showed that further investigation and a more leisurely assessment were demanded by the range and importance of the subject and by changing perspectives. With the aid of the Stein bequest to the British Academy, David Oates gave new substance to 'the lost traveller's dream', extending it widely into a more general account of the Mesopotamian scene from the Assyrian period in the second millennium B.C. to the struggles of Rome and Byzantium with the Parthians and Sasanians in the early centuries A.D. The book concludes with a study of little-known Hellenistic, Roman and Parthian pottery, mostly from the author's excavations."--Jacket
