The copy of William J. Murnane's The Road to Kadesh I purchased a few weeks ago has a handwritten note on the front endpaper:

I'll need to look up the inscription to be sure, but here's a speculation: it might have been an emendation of kitchen's (correcting an error in the original). I can see where on papyrus N1 and N35 ...

Hello from Ohio!

I would recommend two books prior to tackling Allen (which is excellent, but maybe not the best place to start off).
