Excerpt from Egypt, Greece, and Rome The series of World Literature Readers, designed for use in Grades V-IX, aims to give a glimpse into the real life of the various nations of the world to open a gate upon a path which, if the youthful explorer wills to follow it, may lead him on into wide fields. He who has learned to read is no longer a citizen of one age or one land, but of all ages and all lands. Through literature and through art he may lose the boundaries of his own meager experience and win his way into the thoughts, ideals, aspira tions, knowledge, and visions of the best minds of all times and races the possessions of the entire human family. To realize our world heritage we need to touch the beginnings of things, in the folk tale and myth not only of our own people and land but of all peoples and lands; we need companionship with the heroes of the human race, not only the heroes of war and adventure but the heroes of our common life, - for the race, as Hamilton Mabie says, lives in its heroic folk, its men and women who dare and do, the ever-returning figure in its myths, traditions, epics, histories, novels.

Excerpt from Memoirs of the American Academy in Rome, Vol. 21 Numerous factual discoveries mark the progress of knowledge through the past hundred years of archaeological research. Roman art has had its share of these discoveries; nevertheless, the recent discussions in this field have prob ably made their greatest contribution by bringing into focus the general problem of Roman art. As to the answers suggested, no agreement is yet in sight. At least it is evident today that one cannot write a history of Roman art, as one can set out to write a history of Egyptian or Greek art, by starting from a recognized, coherent body of works of art, which present an obvious unity of style, of inten tions and of means of expression. The terms Egyptian, Greek have an established meaning in the field of art; the meaning of the word Roman cannot so be taken for granted. The unity of Roman art is not obvious as a style or approach to artistic representation, like the Egyptian style. If a similar inner coherence existed at all in Roman art connecting its various manifestations; it must still be uncovered in'the diversity before us. The decision is mostly up to the modern student, as to what to call Roman and why, and the burden of proof rests on the critic. A history of Roman art cannot merely present and explain; it must first define its subject matter. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from An Exhibition of Antique Sculpture, Vases, Bronzes, &C., &C: Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Italian, From the Hope, Peel, Kennedy, Clephan, Hilton Price, and Other Collections Taking our stand by Furtwangler's pronouncements on the chief l'raxitelean statues, we may safely assume that the Peel torso belongs to the artist's maturity, when he had broken away from the influence of l'olykleitos and had attained that intimate mastery of the secrets of marble tech nique which is so conspicuous in the Hermes. The quiet, vertical, unbroken planes which we associate with the work of l'olykleitos and the earlier statuesattributed to l'raxiteles, such as the Dresden Satyr and the l'alatine liros in the Louvre, have given place in the present work to the elusive subtlety of nature itself, a wealth of soft indula tions, which, as has been well remarked of the Hermes.

Excerpt from The China Painter Instruction Book The art of figure painting is somewhat difficult com pared with the other styles of china decoration, and has been made more so by the introduction of many unnecessary colors and methods of applying them. The beginner who has tried to follow these complicated methods has become discouraged in this very interesting and valuable art of china painting. Figure painting on china has been greatly admired and if a simplified and understandable method were taught, it would become one of the most popular styles of decoration. Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Renaissance decorations of pottery are all very beautiful, and in these we find figures as the motif, painted both in conventional and in natural style. These decorations do not seem to have been generally followed, although quite easy to produce. But in this chap ter we will consider at figure painting. This being supple mentary, it will be found to be the easiest way to produce figures in their natural colors.

Current questions on whether Hellenistic Egypt should be understood in terms of colonialism and imperialism, multicultural separatism, or integration and syncretism have never been closely studied in the context of healing. Examing all forms of healing within the specific socioeconomic and environmental constraints of the Ptolemies’ Egypt, this book explores how linguistic, cultural and ethnic affiliations and interactions were expressed in the medical domain. Topics include the environmental and demographic background, perceptions of Greek and Egyptian medicine, the intersection between religion and healing, interactions on the theoretical and textual plane, diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutics in practice, and the range of medical practitioners. The book concludes with a case study of medicine in Ptolemaic Alexandria.

Drawing on a 200-year-old tradition, this original collection features a deft combination of vintage vampire tales with more contemporary stories. Anthologist Mike Ashley introduces a dozen fantasies that weave together dark, psychological elements with well-recognized vampire themes. His notes trace the development of vampire fiction, illustrating the genre's life beyond the well-known conventions established by Bram Stoker's Dracula. Selections range from Lord Byron's contribution to the legendary storytelling session that produced Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to Nancy Holder's "Blood Gothic," a modern perspective on the corrupting influence of the romantic vampire image. Additional contributors include Alexandre Dumas, Karl von Wachsmann, Tanith Lee, Elizabeth Lynn Linton, Julian Osgood Field, R. Murray Gilchrist, Dick Donovan, Brian Stableford, Sidney Bertram, and Ernst Raupach.
