The Mythology of All Races is a thirteen volume series published from 1916-1932. In "Volume V, Semitic," Stephen H. Langdon treated mythological traditions from Mesopotamia and other ancient near eastern cultures. The work includes illustrations, translations, myth summaries, and information about how the different groups influenced one another through time. The author, Langdon, had a strong background in Sumerian and Akkadian studies, whereby he did lots of field work that contributed to the growth of the body of knowledge. The 1964 edition is a reprint of the original 1931 publication (Boston, MA: Marshall Jones Company).
The Babylonian religion was practiced throughout modern-day Iraq and the general near east (Mesopotamia) during antiquity. Its chief deity was Marduk.
It looks like only the main myth was referenced in this work.
