Description du livre TheClassics.us. Paperback. État : New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 90 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.2in.This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1851 edition. Excerpt: . . . obtained regarding the history and arts of that people, that before was entirely hid from us, and which even now suffices to give us very clear and certain notions of what and who that people were, and of what they actually performed, as well as what they aspired to do. But scarcely less important than the knowledge of what has been done, is the certainty we acquire that the path is clear for the completion of what still remains to be accomplished; so that it is only a question of time as to how long it will take before all these Assyrian inscriptions--and they already fill volumes--will be as available to the artist or the historical inquirer, as are any of those that have come down to us from the ages of Greek or Roman antiquity. chronology. There is nothing more essential in an inquiry like the present, than to obtain as clear ideas as may be possible of the chronology of the objects about to be discussed, not only relatively to one another, but also, if possible, to ascertain the exact period that elapsed between the age of one and that of another; without this, all reasoning is vague and unsatisfactory in the extreme; and it is impossible either to understand what one sees, or to derive from it that instruction which a knowledge of its position in a series most inevitably conveys. By far the most important result obtained in Egypt, by the translation of the hieroglyphics, has been precisely this, that it has enabled us to classify the monuments, --to see how one building and one style grew out of another, --and in what mode the national mind expressed itself at the various epochs with which we are now familiar. This being accomplished, Egypt takes her place at once in the worlds history; and any one who knows her chronology can read. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
