Scope and Contents:
- The fifth of a series of eighteen sketchbooks (Skizzenbücher), in which Ernst Herzfeld recorded his observations on topography, landscape, archaeological remains, architecture, artifacts and decorative motifs, related to the second campaign of excavations at the Palace of the Caliph at Samarra (Dār al-Khilāfa, Jawsaq al-Khāqāni, Bayt al-Khalīfah) including the western garden, the Bāb al-ʿĀmma and the square reception-hall block, the great courtyard (Great Esplanade), the south side of the complex, the Large Serdab, the Rotundabau, the east end and the Small Serdab, the stable and pavilions, the barracks, Al-Hamman, and finally the north palace.
