The central purpose of this study is to present a full edition of 82 heretofore unpublished Neo-Babylonian economic and legal texts from the John Frederick Lewis Collection of the Free Library of Philadelphia. It is hoped that the publication of these texts in autograph copy, transliteration, and translation along with selected notes relating them to published corpora will shed more light on this often neglected genre of material from the Chaldean period.
