Birth of Western Civilization: Greece and Rome

Grant, Michael (editor)

McGraw-Hill Book Company, NY , 1964. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/No Jacket. "Without Greece and Rome, for better or for worse - and almost certainly, despite all our faults, for worse - we should not be what we are. Their significances crowd in upon us with an insistence that is far too many-sided and complex to be satisfied by simple metaphorical phrases indicating the debt, legacy or heritage that we owe to these sources. For one thing, the influences which, whether we like it or not, hold us in thrall have reached us in many differet times and ways, and at every level of consciousness and profundity. In some matters - the classical contribution to the political field, or certain central aspects of the messages of Virgil or Cicero - impingement on the world has been continuous, so that a direct chain of inheritance can be traced all the way through the intervening centuries until the present moment." [Introduction] 727 illustrations; 225 in color; 501 photographs, drawings, maps, and chronological charts. Eleven major essays by experts. Very minor wear to top of spine. Larger format. [Please check on shipping cost for larger format books and multi-volume sets.] 1ST EDITION.

Two hundred years before Praxiteles, the Greeks did not know how to cut marble. Two hundred years before Sappho they could not even write. Yet in those few centuries, western civilization had begun to take shape. In literature, in art, in philosop0hy, and in political theory, the path leads straight back to Athens. Christianity was born in the context of the Roman world; and the Roman Empire gave Europe an image of stability and justice that was to be its inspiration for two thousand years. 727 illustrations 226 in color 501 photographs, drawings, maps and chronological charts" . First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Ex-Library.
