The squeezes of the Arabic inscriptions collected by Max van Berchem in the Middle East are presented here in a systematic way accompanied by their studies and photographs. This is the first of hopefully two volumes which will cover all the existing squeezes in the Archives, representing many inscriptions which do no longer exist.
Squeezes are often the only remnants of inscriptions that have already disappeared. But even if they have survived, for most people they are not accessible, and the squeezes are the nearest thing to the original. The squeezes in the Max van Berchem archives in Geneva were taken during the late 19th century under difficult conditions and using primitive methods. Max van Berchem (hereafter: MvB) and his colleagues used whichever paper that was available to prepare the squeezes. Sometimes the paper was unsuitable, yet, except in the case of unusually badly preserved inscriptions, they somehow managed to get workable copies. They had no better material than paper to prepare the squeezes, and therefore when recording these century old papers and cardboards they have to be handled carefully to prevent damage while moving them around. This is the reason I had to photograph the squeezes in primitive conditions against the window of the room in which they are kept.
