Gelb's booklet is devoted in the main to the reading of the phonetic signs, while ideograms are for the most part left on one side. It contains a complete bibliography in continuation of that given in Part I [see SAOC 2] and "General Observations" as to the character of the writing on pp. 1-12, while a short explanation of the values which are attributed to the fifty-seven signs tabulated in the frontispiece is given on pp. 12-36.
