Descriptive Summary

Creator:Herzfeld, Ernst, 1879–1948
Title:Ernst Herzfeld Papers
Quantity: 150 linear feet (ca. 30,000 items)
Abstract: An outstanding scholar in the field of Iranian studies, Ernst Herzfeld (1879–1948) explored all phases of Near Eastern culture from the prehistoric period to Islamic times. This collection documents Herzfeld's excavations at Samarra, Persepolis, Pasargadae, and Aleppo and includes correspondence; field notebooks; drawings; sketchbooks; inventories of objects; "squeeze" copies of architectural details; and photographs.


The Ernst Herzfeld Papers document the career of Ernst Herzfeld (1879–1948), a German architect, archaeologist, and historian of Islamic and Pre-Islamic studies. After training as an architect he studied archaeology under Delitzch from 1903 to 1906 at the excavations at Assur in Mesopotamia. A student of Latin, Greek, Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Hebrew, Herzfeld received a doctorate in Humanistic Studies at universities in Munich and Berlin in 1907. His work with Friedrich Sarre to survey the monuments of the Tigris-Euphrates valleys resulted in landmark studies in architectural history, published in 1911 and 1920.

In 1920 Herzfeld was appointed to the chair of Historical Geography in Berlin and began his excavation at Samarra. Herzfeld's work there led to a six-volume publication. He published widely throughout his life on the sources of Islamic architecture and ornament, including the Royal Palace at Persepolis.

From 1934 until the end of his life Herzfeld spent his time producing many books and articles, lecturing, and working at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton (1936–1945.) Many of his works continue to be published post-humously.

Detailed Description of the Collection

Series 1: Travel Journals, 1905–1928


It is impractical to include in the Index the name of every person or place mentioned in the Journals. These were essentially short-hand notes intended to remind Herzfeld of facts to be incorporated in subsequent finished studies. Many of the items, especially in N-81 and N-82, are topographical notes for the preparation of maps. Herzfeld tended to note everything he saw and heard, so the Journals contain descriptions of plant and animal life, as well as comments on the countless people he encountered, their economic and their social activities. The Journals also contain descriptions of the practical daily problems of travel, especially with a caravan; the dreams or nightmares he experienced on sleepless nights; and a great variety of thoughts on politics, people or history which crossed his mind during the sometimes tedious hours of travel. He even includes snatches of poetry.

The items entered in the Index are, therefore, primarily those of archaeological significance in the narrow sense of ruins, buildings and artifacts, especially if Herzfeld inserted a sketch. He was accustomed on these exploratory trips to supplement the Journals with comprehensive photographic record (see the inventory to the photographic File) and sketchbooks (see the inventory to the sketchbooks).

The circumstances under which the Journals were written often led to inconsistencies in the spelling which was sometimes again modified in printed texts. It might also be mentioned that there are differences in the transliteration of Near Eastern script according to the French, German or English systems, not to speak of the "personal" systems sometimes adopted by writers in the field. Since Herzfeld published in all three languages, all three systems occur in the catalogues of the collection; but I am confident that that fact will cause no particular hardship for scholars.

Scope and Content Note

"Sent from Cairo"

1. Folder 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."

2. 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

3. Folder 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

4. Folder containing photographs and blueprints of squeezes of the Kartīr inscription, Naqsh-i Rustam

5. Folder 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

6. Folder 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

7. Folder containing a copy of the Pahlavi inscription on the Ka'ba at Naqsh-i Rustam (either for Ghirshman or by him)

8. 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." For the Albums see N-129–132


1. 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"

2. 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"

3. 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

4. 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

5. 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"

6. 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

7. 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

8. Photographic negative of Squeeze 93, 9 × 11". Paikuli, p.109. Another Neg.4396

9. Photographic negative of Squeeze 93, 9 × 11". Paikuli, p.145. Another Neg.4317

10. 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

11. ("Parthian") A record of the Pahlavik stones as prepared by Rawlinson in Hebrew script with Herzfeld's notations of changes

12. ("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

13. Manila envelope of Institute of Advanced Study contains two white envelopes marked A and B. On the large envelope is written "Paikuli, Last Copy.

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))

14. ("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

Contains four large albums of photographs and blueprints

1. Album marked Album I, "Pahlavi Inschriften b." It bears a notation by de Menasce: "Fragments of the Paikuli inscription newly washed and newly found stones photographed (since the publication of Paikuli)...." Includes photographs of stones and some blueprints of tracings. At the end of the Album are tracings of squeezes of sections of the Pahlavi inscription at Sar Mashhad

2. Marked Album II "Pahlavi Inschriften c." A notation by Prof. de Menasce reads: "The Paikuli Inscription, Sasanian (Parsīk) as published by E.H." Photographs of stones and blueprints of tracings.

3. Album III. Notation by de Menasce reads "22 leaves, pages numbered from 1 to 44; on the cover "Corpus Inscriptionum Parthicarum" (this title does not correspond to the contents): the former title, almost erased, seems to have been "Pahlavi Inschriften a." The Inventory by de Menasce (N-128, No. 1) gives a page by page description of the contents of Album II consisting almost exclusively of Aramaic and Pahlavi inscriptions from Sarpul, Naqsh-i Rustam, Naqsh-i Rajab, Hajjiabad, Taq-i Bustān, etc. through that on the Mil-i Radkan

Series 4: Photographic Files, 1903–1947

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–i.e. Prehistoric pottery, bronzes, stone; Persepolis; Sasanian monuments; Syrian monuments, Persian architecture and landscapes, etc.–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.

In addition to the blueprint binders there were three Albums - Photo Files 25 (Sasanian buildings), 27 (Parthian and Sasanian sculptures) and 28 (Pre-Achaemenian monuments and Pasargadae)–in which Herzfeld had arranged prints in a sequence for study or publication purposes. The order in those Photo Files retains that in the Albums.

In addition to the glass negatives, there is an even larger number of cut films. On his archaeological study trips, Herzfeld was accustomed to supplement his photographs on glass plates with photographs on cut film–sometimes of the same subjects, often of other subjects. Some prints to these negative were identified on the back or could be identified from other prints; but in many instances, especially of landscapes, it has not been possible to place them, except in general categories.

Prints from the cut films have been organized, so far as feasible, in groups of related material and placed in the Photo Files of similar subject matter. The negative number appears in the Photo File. Herzfeld also collected prints from many sources for study purposes. Of those there are no negatives, So far as possible, the prints have been identified and placed in the appropriate Photo File.

The Samarra material, Photo Files 19–23, is in a special category. Files 22 and 23 were arranged in Albums labeled "Paläste und Moscheen-I and -II", respectively. The only identification was written on the backs of the prints, glued to the pages of the Albums. These notations have been transferred to the captions in the Photo Files. These two Albums apparently were arranged by Herzfeld with a view to a publication of the architecture of Samarra which was never prepared. The drawings for such a publication are in this collection.

With such a large number of prints, especially in view of the fact that some were arranged in different fashions for different purposes, it is inevitable that there should be some duplication and that related material may be found in several Photo Files. The only way a user can be sure he has not missed material concerning his particular interest is to examine the Photo File Lists where every print is recorded. Inasmuch as scholars study the same monument from different points of view, the fact that a photograph has been published in one context does not diminish its value in another context.
