Browne Unpublished is a leather-bound hand-written manuscript by Gerald M. Browne entitled Old Nubian Literary Texts dated 1 August 2004. It was deposited in the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library of the University of Illinois - Urbana Champaign, Browne's home institution. Its contents include re-editions of all Old Nubian literary texts known to Browne. Digital images of the manuscript were obtained for study by Giovanni Ruffini. Items 1-15 appear in the manuscript in the same order in which they appear in Browne 1989a, Literary Texts in Old Nubian. Browne's marginalia to 1989a include a note to add items 16-24 below, and also indicate that he considered adding "SPG," an item not included in this manuscript. I have not yet been able to determine what text that abbreviation refers to.

As he is deceased, approval thus would come from his estate, represented by Stephen Bay. Bay's letter approving this project is forthcoming.

15. Griffith's Graffito 2.5-9 (gr. 2): According to Browne 2002, 4, he relies on Griffith 1913 for this text, and has no re-edition himself. Thus, 1913, The Nubian Texts of the Christian Period, Berlin. This is presumably out of copyright.
