Date:

Scope and Contents:
- The first of a series of four inventory books, in which Ernst Herzfeld recorded archaeological remains, prehistoric artifacts and antiquities collected or acquired in several cities throughout Mesopotamia and Persia in 1923 and 1924.
- Additional information from staff reads: "Herzfeld has diversely applied to each inventory number, which are ranging from 1 to 2,032, a place of provenance and/or acquisition; dates; sketches; a storage box letter code; references to specific museum institutions, collectors, and antique dealers; physical descriptions; a dinasty and reign attribution; currency prices in Indian Rupee and in British Pound Sterling; and cross-references to additional materials (glass negatives, photographic prints, sketchbooks, and paper squeezes) within the Ernst Herzfeld Papers."
- Handwritten caption, in pencil (probably later addition), on inside of front cover reads: "Herzfeld Coll."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-89 reads, "Inventory of objects in Herzfeld Collection, Nos. 1-2032, most with sketch, description, place of acquisition, price and provenance. There are some cross-references to sketchbooks and, in some cases, a note of disposition."
Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks; Inventory of Objects in Herzfeld Collection (N-89)
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Ledgers were included in a larger body of diverse material acknowledged by Ernst Herzfeld as his study collection. In the early 1970s, Joseph Upton, for research purpose, rearranged the collection and created a specific series (Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 3: Notebooks, 1904-1946, 1957, n.d.) for 131 notebooks, including four ledgers and eight travel journals. Upton has given this ledger an accession number, N-89, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
"Ernst Herzfeld's years in Iran [Persia] from 1923 to 1925 were made possible by a private company with limited liability called the Gesellschaft zur Förderung von Ausgrabungen und Forschungsreisen GmbH, which was founded in 1923. Its aim was to foster excavations and scientific expeditions in Asia and to publish the results. [...]. [Consequently] Herzfeld was able to travel freely in Iran and survey most major archaeological sites, [...]."
