  • Vorwort Mit der vorliegenden Sammlung habe ich lediglich das Ziel im Auge, fr gyptologische bungen auf Universitten geeigneten Lesestoff aus hieratischen Handschriften in zuverlssiger Gestalt zugnglich zu machen. Die Texte sind, soweit es sich um Papyri des Berliner Museums handelt, unter steter Vergleichung der Originale auf Photographien oder Gelatinedurchzeichnungen autographiert. Die notwendigsten Angaben ber Inhalt und Alter der Handschriften sind den einzelnen Abschnitten vorausgeschickt. Als Hilfsmittel setze ich meine Hieratische Palographie (Leipzig, im gleichen Verlage, Bd. 1:1909) voraus; die Zahlen, welche ich seltenen oder besonders unregelmig gestalteten Zeichen im Texte beigefgt habe, beziehen sich auf die in dieser Arbeit durchlaufenden Ziffern. Aufschlu ber grammatische Fragen findet der Benutzer, soweit es sich um die Lesestcke des vorliegenden ersten Heftes handelt, in Ermans gyptischer Grammatik (2. Auflage Berlin 1902, 3. Auflage in Vorbereitung), den Wortschatz wird ihm das gyptische Glossar desselben Autors (Berlin 1904) liefern. Gr. Lichterfelde b. Berlin Georg Mller.

  • Foreword

    With this collection, I have only the goal in mind, of making suitable reading material from hieratic manuscripts in reliable form, accessible for egyptological exercises in universities. The texts, as far as it concerns the papyri of the Berlin Museum, are autographed on photographs or gelatin copies constantly collated with the originals.

    The indispensable information about contents and age of the manuscripts precede each section. As an aid, my Hieratic paleography (Leipzig, from the same publisher, Vol. 1:1909) is required; the figures, which I have added to rare or especially irregular formed signs in the text, are referring to the figures running in this work. The user will find explanations about grammatical questions, as far as it concerns the reading passages of the present first fascicle, in Erman's Egyptian Grammer (2nd edition Berlin 1902, 3rd edition being prepared), the vocabulary will be given to him by the Egyptian Glossary of the same author (Berlin 1904). Gr. Lichterfelde b. Berlin Georg Mller.
