Praise for the Print Edition
All the light thrown upon these historical books by recent archaeological discoveries, more especially by inscriptions, is here made use of, as more fully in the author’s ‘Fresh Light from the Ancient Monuments,’ to which he refers his readers. The illustrative value of this little book is very great.
