Also, as a general referece, "The World's Writing Systems," by Daniels
and Bright is invaluable (Amazon link:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0195079930/qid=1134504422/sr=2-1/ref=pd_bbs_b_2_1/102-1662448-0128105?s=books&v=glance&n=283155
).  It's on sale for $45.00 direct from Oxford (www.oup.com) - go to the
sale catalog at the top of the home page.  It's well worth the price,
esp. $130 off.  It is very comprehensive, esp. ancient scripts.
