Eternal Greece

By Warner,Rex

London: Thames & Hudson, 1957. "Ancient Greece was the fountainhead of Western civilization, and the richness of the legacy handed down to later generations by the Hellenic world is without parallel. Today, only weathered monuments, some little more than ruins, fragments of friezes and isolated sculptures remain to bear tangible witness to this once flourishing pre-Christian culture. But its spirit lives on: in the records of its poets, dramatists and historians, and in the very blood of its inheritors. Dr Hurlimann and Mr Warner, by dint of a singularly happy collaboration, have succeeded in bringing Ancient Greece once more before our eyes. The former has, with his camera, captured all the qualities that make up the perfection of Greek architecture; the milky clarity of the white Attic sunshine on marble, the forlorn dignity of sacred grove and deserted amphitheatre, the opalescent shimmer of Aegean bays. To complement these admirable pictures, the author of Men and Gods and Greeks and Trojans gives us a lucid account of what he considers to be the salient features of Hellenic civilization, incorporating a number of his own entirely new renderings from the works of Ancient Greek writers. Here is a feast for the eye and for the mind. No such authoritative yet readily assimilable record of 'the glory that was Greece' Large format survey of the most important archaeological sites in Greece, printed in a large size type face and with marvellous photographs in B & W and colour.175p. illus. Cover slightly sun faded and soiled.. Reprint.. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Photographs By Max Hurliman.

Cats in Love

By Silvester, Hans W.

San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2006. Perhaps the most acclaimed photographer of cats in the world, Hans Silvester returns to his beloved Greek isles, the subject of his best-selling Cats in the Sun, for this glorious new collection of deliciously sun-drenched photographs. Cats in Love reveals the full wealth and intensity of feline affection -- from the amorous prowl of a tomcat to the motherly tenderness of a tabby; from the playful nips of tussling kittens to friends caught curled up in a nap; from a pair of young acquaintances shyly rubbing noses to a couple of old friends grooming each other. Set against the idyllic white-washed villages of the Mediterranean, this is love in all its sweet diversity. Sure to delight fans of Silvester's previous work, Cats in Love will certainly charm softies of every stripe. 152p. of wonderful colour photographs. A delightful gift book for fans of felines!.
