The volume editors wish to thank the editorial staff in Helsinki for many new insights, corrections and observations contributed in the course of preparation of this volume, over and above their substantial routine work on its production. The so-called Johns "Schedules" and Royal Grants made out to individual landowners were excluded from the volume through a decision of the Editor in Chief. The reasons for this decision are set out in detail in the introduction.

The transliterations were in principle established by Postgate, and the translations by Fales, in each case with frequent input from the other editor or from the editorial staff in Helsinki. The introduction is the work of Fales. We would like to thank most warmly the Faculty of Letters, University of Padua, and Trinity College, Cambridge, for material assistance toward the expenses of the edition, notably by meeting the editors' travelling costs on more than one occasion.
