Scope and Contents:
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 1 reads, "Marked "Pahlavi" contains studies of Pahlavi inscriptions, such as monograms on bullae, and what appears to be a preliminary draft of an article attempting to elucidate the relationships between monumental and cursive scripts and Pahhlavik, Parsik and book Pahlavi. It starts: "Die Awesta-schrift ist, trotzdem sie die einzelnen Buchstaben nicht verbindet, eine Schreibschrift, eine Kursive, keine Denkmalschrift, keine monumental."."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 2 reads, "Envelope containing pages apparently from a draft of The Persian Empire, Chaps. XIV-XV dealing with the Achaemenian Satrapies as reflected in the figures of Tribute-bearers and Throne-bearers at Bistun, Persepolis and Naqsh-i Rustam."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 3 reads, "Marked "Aramaeisches". Contains tracings and photographs of Aramaic inscriptions from various sources and a Table comparing Hebrew letters of the alphabet with those found in other inscriptions including Avroman, Naqsh-i Rustam, Hajjiabad, Paikuli, Persepolis and Taq-i Bustan."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 4 reads, "Photographs and blueprints of squeezes of the Kartīr inscription, Naqsh-i Rustam."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 5 reads, "Marked "File III" containing photographs and blueprints of squeezes of inscriptions at: (1) Sarpul (cuneiform); (2) Naqsh-i Rajab (Kartīr); (3) Hajjiabad; (4) Naqsh-i Rustam (Ardashir); (5) Arabic inscriptions at Persepolis."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 6 reads, "Marked "File II" contains reading notes on "Tabula Pentisgerdana (?), Tomascheck; also miscellaneous loose sheets found in "Corpus Inscriptionum Partharicarum", including Sasanian seal-stones, Hephthalite coins, Greek and cuneiform inscriptions; and an envelope with Oriental Institute photographs of stone blocks inscribed in Greek from the Fratadara temple, Persepolis (see SK-XIX. p.9 and 15); and a photo of three cylinder seals."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 7 reads, "Copy of the Pahlavi inscription on the Ka'ba at Naqsh-i Rustam (either for Ghirshman or by him)."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-127, folder 8 reads, "Black, loose-leaf notebook marked "A Corpus of Parthian and Sasanian Inscriptions, Texts, Transcriptions, Translations". A note in the hand of Pere de Menasce says: "E.H. worked on this book up to the time of his death. The Illustrations are in Albums, I, II, III, IV."."
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Notebooks 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 notebook an accession number, N-127, related to the series he created for the notebooks, probably following Herzfeld's original organization.

Date:
1904-1946
Scope and Contents:
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 1 reads, "A brown envelope marked "Pahlavi Material List". The bulk of the material on the inscriptions at Paikuli is in N-128, supplemented by an Album of photographs and blueprints in N-129 and a black, loose-leaf notebook (Corpus), No.8 in N-127. The material was examined and catalogued in 1953 by Prof. J. de Menasce, University of Fribourg, Switzerland. His detailed catalogue and comments are given in two papers in the file, one entitled "A Provisional Inventory of the Literary Remains of the late Professor E.E.Herzfeld concerning Iran..."; the other "A Guide to the Middle Persian material in the Herzfeld Archive.". The Guide also has additions or emendations in pencil, presumably entered at a later date, probably by Prof. R.N.Frye. An element of confusion is introduced in the Paikuli material by the 32 blocks either newly discovered or cleaned, re-photographed and re-drawn by Herzfeld in 1924, after the publication of the earlier blocks had appeared in the Paikuli volume. The new blocks required some re-arrangement in the ordering of the original blocks. As Prof. de Menasce implies in his note, only a close study of the material by a competent scholar can determine which of the proposed arrangements is the correct one. In addition to the above guides, there is (1) a separate undated and unsigned sheet entitled "Pahlavi Material in the Herzfeld Collection" and (2) a new summary of Herzfeld's last arrangement of Paikuli blocks, including those unpublished, based on the arrangement in No.13, N-128. The summary gives the old (Herzfeld's) numbers of the original squeezes in the Archive (noted on separate file catalogue cards) and the new numbers given to the squeezes when they were re-organized for storage. The summary also gives the negative numbers of the squeezes and stones (when available) and the numbers of the published blocks as they appear in Herzfeld's last copy. With the papers noted above is a detailed catalogue of three of the four large Albums in N-129, prepared by Pére de Menasce, as well as correspondence of Mr. Wenley, Prof. de Menasce and others concerning the publication of the Paikuli material. For information about the squeezes themselves, see the "Catalogue of Squeezes"."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 2 reads, "A folder of heavy white paper with the Kartīr inscription at Sar Mashhad, enclosing 4 photographs (with blueprints) of sections of the inscription; a tracing of an unidentified amulet with page giving inscriptions in two Pahlavi scripts: cursive and book Pahlavi; 2 pages of what appear to be Pahlavi inscriptions on bullae. The folder is marked "All these to be microfilmed for Rev, J. de Menasce"."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 3 reads, "Manila folder containing: (1) the Pahlavi and Greek texts of the Ka'ba inscription, Naqsh-i Rustam; (2) a comparative table of transliterated texts of the Kartīr inscriptions at Sar Mashhad, Naqsh-i Rustam. K i Z (Ka'ba) and Naqsh-i Rajab."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 4 reads, "Tracings of 26 Paikuli block inscriptions, and photographs of 126 (all but three) of the small transcripts of the blocks from Herzfeld's last copy. Those missing are (1) transcript of a seal inscription, (2) of an unnumbered block E 1, and (3) of a new unnumbered block marked "before D-5." See No.13 for the small transcripts. On the back of each photograph is noted the number of the block and its location in the series of blocks."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 5 reads, "Manila folder marked "Paikuli, the Sasanian Version. Blueprints of the unpublished squeezes. The numbers on the back refer to those given by E.H. to his latest copies of the blocks"."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 6 reads, "Manila folder of blueprints of unpublished Pahlavik or Parthian squeezes. A note on the cover (which also includes folder 5) by P. de Menasce says: "Blueprints. These are photographs of E.H.'s latest squeezes mostly unpublished or photographed anew." The numbers on the backs are from Herzfeld's last copy."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 7 reads, "Manila folder with blueprints of Kartīr inscription, Naqsh-i Rajab; large photographs of (1) Greek inscription at Sarpul, (2) Kartīr inscription, Naqsh-i Rajab, (3) (right side of Main Staircase, Persepolis, and (4) Pahlavi and Greek inscriptions on horse's rump, Naqsh-i Rustam."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 8 reads, "Photographic negative of Squeeze 93, 9 Ã&#x2014 11". Paikuli, p.109. Another Neg.4396."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 9 reads, "Photographic negative of Squeeze 93, 9 Ã&#x2014 11". Paikuli, p.145. Another Neg.4317."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 10 reads, "Long manila envelope contains small drawings of individual Paikuli blocks and long strips of transcript, apparently showing an attempt to reconstruct the lines of the inscriptions. Envelope also contains tracing of a coin of Phraates IV with Greek inscriptions."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 11 reads, "("Parthian") A record of the Pahlavik stones as prepared by Rawlinson in Hebrew script with Herzfeld's notations of changes."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 12 reads, "("Sasani") Similar record of Rawlinson's list of the Parsik stones in Hebrew with, in some cases, Herzfeld's transliteration into Pahlavi. Also contains 11 slips of blocks with existing text supplemented by Rawlinson's copies."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 13 reads, "Manila envelope of Institute of Advanced Study contains two white envelopes marked A and B. On the large envelope is written "Paikuli, Last Copy. All numbers written by J, de Menasce refer to this". On A de Menasce wrote "The Paikuli Inscription, pahlavīk. Last state of Herzfeld's arrangement. Contains unpublished material." On B de Menasce wrote "The Paikuli Inscription, parsīk. Last state of Prof. Herzfeld's arrangement. Contains unpublished material." (The unnumbered block marked "before D-5" seems to be another version of the block following E-7 (J.M.U.'74))."
- In Finding Aid, Joseph Upton's caption for N-128, folder 14 reads, "("Paikuli II, 1923, 1-7 Juni") This is the field sketchbook of Herzfeld's last trip to Paikuli with sketches of new inscriptions and notes. Also contains sketch of an inscribed Sasanian bulla from Sarpul."
Arrangement:
In the original arrangement of the Ernst Herzfeld Archive, Notebooks 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.

""I, Kartir, am known in the empire for righteousness and eminence, and known to have been of good service and good will to the Yazads and lords. Further I to the Yazads ward this also thus promised, that, if by the help of the Yazads I, Kartir, for the living upon highest rank were made to look then also by me further to the departed ward of heaven and hell the essential features would be outlined (or proclaimed or enlarged) for the sake, also, of these divine services as within the empire they are performed, for the sake of these also. Further, of whatever kind they may be, that were to be outlined by me by way of becoming more authoritative, and that thus, as I had promised to the Yazads. Further by me those which were established, even thus as by me it (was to be done for) heaven and hell, for these services also orthodoxy and heterodoxy (in) their essential features were (to be) outlined. Now for me then, when by the help of the Yazads this also was established, to the departed ward this thus was outlined, then (to) the Yazads of much better service and will have I become. And for my own soul I have become more provident and quiet. And also on these offerings and services which within the empire are performed much more authoritative have I become. And whosoever sees this inscription and reads it, that one for Yazads and lords and his own soul straight and right let him be. And beyond this, also, in the offerings and services and the Mazdayasnian religion, which is now performed for the living, let him become more authoritative. Now another matter; not everyone may issue a command at will. Let it be known what I have decided: There is a heaven and there is a hell. And whoever is a well doer shall go straight to heaven. And whoever is a sinner shall be cast down to hell. And whoever is a well doer and after well doing persistently runs, this one (in) this bone-endowed body good fame and prosperity shall attain and also (in) this bone-endowed spirit orthodoxy shall (he) overtake, as I, Kartir, have attained. Now I have written this inscription for this purpose, that since for me, Kartir, from of yore onward by rulers and lords many fires with (their) magi by imperial deeds were instituted and for me the great glory of my own name on imperial deeds and documents stands written, that whoever in future time imperial documents or deeds or other inscriptions may see, that one should know, that I am Kartir, who (under) Shapur, King of Kings, Kartir the Magupat [Magus-master] and Ehrpat was entitled; and under Hormizd, King of Kings, and Varahran, King of Kings, son of Shapur, Kartir, Ahura Mazda's Magupat was entitled; and under Varahran, [King of] Kings, son of Varahran, Kartir, Soul-savior of Varahran and Ahura Mazda's Magupat was entitled. Written by Buhtak, scribe of Kartir, the Lord."." [Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives, Curatorial Research Assistant]

Arrangement:
According to Myron B. Smith handwritten document (Myron Bement Smith Collection, Subseries 2.1: Islamic Archives History, Collection Information; Box 60; Folder 44: 47 P Antoine Sevruguin, glass negatives, Iran), Antoin Sevruguin's 696 glass negatives, at the time of their acquisition, were arranged into 61 boxes without any apparent organization. Today they are housed in archival document boxes, essentially duplicating the original arrangement, and stored on shelves. This glass negative was included into "Box 38."
Biographical / Historical:
Antoin Sevruguin is one of the early pioneers of commercial photography in Iran. He arrived in Iran from Tbilisi, Georgia in the mid 1870s to set up shop in Ala al-Dawla street in Tehran. From the early days, Sevruguin's studio was trusted both by the Qajar court and by foreign visitors to Iran. Highly regarded for their artistic ingenuity outside Iran, Sevruguin's photographs of 'ethnic types,' architecture and landscape, and depictions of daily life of Tehran found their way into foreign travelogues, magazines and books. As such, he stands alone in a relatively large group of early Iranian photographers for being recognized and celebrated outside the boundaries of the country. Antoin Sevruguin passed away in 1933, leaving behind only a fraction of his large collection of glass negatives, which is currently in the Archives of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery.

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 5, Volume 3", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 141 photographic prints of antiquities and from archaeological sites such as Bisutun Site (Iran), Istakhr (Iran), Naqsh-i Rajab (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Pasargadae (Iran), and Persepolis (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- Additional information from staff reads, "Ernst Herzfeld has visited the Sevruguin Studio in Tehran (Iran) and purchased several Antoin Sevruguin photographic prints. Thirteen of them (FSA A.6 04.PF.05.v3.001; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.002; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.003; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.003a; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.004; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.005; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.006; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.007a; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.007b; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.008a; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.008b; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.009; FSA A.6 04.05.v3.037b) are in the Ernst Herzfeld Papers; Photo File 5, Volume 3."

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Persepolis (Photo File 5, vol. 3)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 10 additional files in excess of the 24 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Ernst Herzfeld Papers, Series 4: Photographic Files; Sassanid Monuments (Cyanotypes File 8)
Arrangement:
- Of most of his 3,890 glass negatives, Herzfeld had blueprints made which he arranged in 16 binders irrespective of the number on the negative. In addition to the 16 blueprint binders, he assembled 5 albums including two from the Samarra series labelled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II." The remainder of the photographs, from glass negatives and from cut films, sometimes identified by Herzfeld, were printed en masse for study purpose (labelled by Upton as duplicate prints) and which are, for the most part, unpublished. For his own research, Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources. Of those there are no negatives. Finally, in early 1970s, Joseph Upton reorganized the whole Herzfeld collection of photographic prints into 42 photographic files, assembling 14 additional files in excess of the 21 existing files arranged by Herzfeld himself. The eight remaining files, File 35 to File 42, are made of duplicate prints provided by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Scope and Contents:
- "Photo File 8, Volume 1", which was assembled by Joseph Upton, provides 166 photographic prints which relate to study of Sasanian monuments at Hatra (Iraq), Taq-i Bustan (Iran), Hamadan (Iran), Persepolis (Iran), Bisutun Site (Iran), Naqsh-i Rustam (Iran), Sarpul (Iran), Firuzabad (Iran), Naqsh-i Rajab (Iran), Bishapur (Iran), Naqsh-i Bahram (Iran), Sar Mashhad (Iran), Barm-i Dilak (Iran), and Guyum (Iran).
- Additional information from Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive reads, "The prints are from three sources: (1) those from glass negatives; (2) those from cut film; and (3) those for which there are no negatives. The Archive contains Herzfeld's glass negatives, numbered from 1 to 3850. Of most of these he had blueprints made which he had arranged in 16 binders by general categories, irrespective of the number on the negative. These formed the nucleus for the preparation of the Photo Files. The 16 binders of blueprints have been replaced by Photo Files, Nos. 1-16. The prints in each File are arranged in the same order as the blueprints; and the number of the negative is enclosed in parentheses. Following a brief identification, is a reference to the place where the print has been published, if that is the case and such publication has been located."
- "Photo File 8, Volume 1" is composed of 166 photographic prints, made from the following glass plates, "FSA a.6 04.GN.1901; FSA a.6 04.GN.1902; FSA a.6 04.GN.1906; FSA a.6 04.GN.1906a; FSA a.6 04.GN.1705; FSA a.6 04.GN.1706; FSA a.6 04.GN.1707; FSA a.6 04.GN.1709; FSA a.6 04.GN.1708; FSA a.6 04.GN.1905; FSA a.6 04.GN.0926; FSA a.6 04.GN.1903; FSA a.6 04.GN.1904; FSA a.6 04.GN.2492; FSA a.6 04.GN.2493; FSA a.6 04.GN.2494; FSA a.6 04.GN.2495; FSA a.6 04.GN.2126; FSA a.6 04.GN.1908; FSA a.6 04.GN.1909; FSA a.6 04.GN.1910; FSA a.6 04.GN.1911; FSA a.6 04.GN.1907; FSA a.6 04.GN.1912; FSA a.6 04.GN.1913; FSA a.6 04.GN.1765; FSA a.6 04.GN.1761; FSA a.6 04.GN.1762; FSA a.6 04.GN.1763; FSA a.6 04.GN.2785; FSA a.6 04.GN.1764; FSA a.6 04.GN.1760; FSA a.6 04.GN.2781; FSA a.6 04.GN.1766; FSA a.6 04.GN.1767; FSA a.6 04.GN.2778; FSA a.6 04.GN.2745; FSA a.6 04.GN.1768; FSA a.6 04.GN.1769; FSA a.6 04.GN.1770; FSA a.6 04.GN.2742; FSA a.6 04.GN.1771; FSA a.6 04.GN.1772; FSA a.6 04.GN.2784; FSA a.6 04.GN.0167; FSA a.6 04.GN.2462; FSA a.6 04.GN.2463; FSA a.6 04.GN.2464; FSA a.6 04.GN.2466a; FSA a.6 04.GN.0485; FSA a.6 04.GN.2800; FSA a.6 04.GN.1773; FSA a.6 04.GN.1776; FSA a.6 04.GN.1774; FSA a.6 04.GN.1777; FSA a.6 04.GN.3203; FSA a.6 04.GN.3202; FSA a.6 04.GN.1775; FSA a.6 04.GN.2779; FSA a.6 04.GN.1778; FSA a.6 04.GN.1779; FSA a.6 04.GN.0433; FSA a.6 04.GN.2799; FSA a.6 04.GN.2467; FSA a.6 04.GN.2465; FSA a.6 04.GN.0170; FSA a.6 04.GN.2496; FSA a.6 04.GN.1780; FSA a.6 04.GN.2789; FSA a.6 04.GN.2468; FSA a.6 04.GN.2790; FSA a.6 04.GN.1781; FSA a.6 04.GN.1782; FSA a.6 04.GN.2469; FSA a.6 04.GN.3176; FSA a.6 04.GN.2792; FSA a.6 04.GN.1790; FSA a.6 04.GN.1791; FSA a.6 04.GN.1792; FSA a.6 04.GN.1793; FSA a.6 04.GN.1794; FSA a.6 04.GN.2470; FSA a.6 04.GN.2797; FSA a.6 04.GN.1795; FSA a.6 04.GN.1796; FSA a.6 04.GN.1798; FSA a.6 04.GN.1797; FSA a.6 04.GN.1799; FSA a.6 04.GN.2471; FSA a.6 04.GN.1805; FSA a.6 04.GN.1808; FSA a.6 04.GN.1809; FSA a.6 04.GN.1807; FSA a.6 04.GN.1806; FSA a.6 04.GN.1800; FSA a.6 04.GN.2796; FSA a.6 04.GN.1802; FSA a.6 04.GN.1803; FSA a.6 04.GN.1804; FSA a.6 04.GN.1801; FSA a.6 04.GN.1810; FSA a.6 04.GN.3162; FSA a.6 04.GN.2798; FSA a.6 04.GN.2472; FSA a.6 04.GN.2473; FSA a.6 04.GN.2474; FSA a.6 04.GN.2475; FSA a.6 04.GN.2788; FSA a.6 04.GN.1812; FSA a.6 04.GN.1811; FSA a.6 04.GN.2478; FSA a.6 04.GN.3177; FSA a.6 04.GN.2787; FSA a.6 04.GN.2477; FSA a.6 04.GN.2479; FSA a.6 04.GN.0430; FSA a.6 04.GN.0425; FSA a.6 04.GN.2476; FSA a.6 04.GN.3179; FSA a.6 04.GN.2777; FSA a.6 04.GN.1816; FSA a.6 04.GN.1815; FSA a.6 04.GN.1814; FSA a.6 04.GN.2485; FSA a.6 04.GN.0169; FSA a.6 04.GN.0171; FSA a.6 04.GN.2780; FSA a.6 04.GN.2487; FSA a.6 04.GN.1817; FSA a.6 04.GN.1819; FSA a.6 04.GN.2489; FSA a.6 04.GN.2488; FSA a.6 04.GN.2486; FSA a.6 04.GN.2786; FSA a.6 04.GN.2480; FSA a.6 04.GN.2481; FSA a.6 04.GN.2482; FSA a.6 04.GN.2483; FSA a.6 04.GN.1813; FSA a.6 04.GN.0428; FSA a.6 04.GN.0427; FSA a.6 04.GN.2484; FSA a.6 04.GN.0334; FSA a.6 04.GN.0965; FSA a.6 04.GN.0434; FSA a.6 04.GN.0424; FSA a.6 04.GN.2490; FSA a.6 04.GN.2491; FSA a.6 04.GN.0429; FSA a.6 04.GN.2801; FSA a.6 04.GN.0168; FSA a.6 04.GN.1822; FSA a.6 04.GN.1821; FSA a.6 04.GN.1820; FSA a.6 04.GN.2400; FSA a.6 04.GN.2401; FSA a.6 04.GN.2402; FSA a.6 04.GN.2403; FSA a.6 04.GN.1826."
