The Corpus of Mycenaean Inscriptions from Knossos, to be completed in three or four volumes, constitutes the definitive publication by the world's major Mycenaean epigraphists of the Linear B tablets found by Sir Arthur Evans at Knossos in Crete. It includes all the fragments discarded by Evans and subsequently recovered from the Museums storerooms and elsewhere and represents the result of 30 years' work on reconstituting the documents. Each tablet or fragment is given as a photograph, drawing, and in transcription. The notes are purely textual. Volume I contains tablets 1-1063.
