The handsome volume, which is issued by Dr.
Edmund von Mach through Ginn & Co., can best
be described by quoting the author's own preface,
which is plainly descriptive, and will give our
readers an accurate idea of the scope and treatment
of the book.
" Greek sculpture is much admired, but little
known. The ancient statues for years have been
studied as interesting curios rather than as things
alive. The dead have no claims upon us ; the
living alone can teach us, and Greek sculpture is
not dead. The vitality of its spirit and of its
principles is such that it has outlasted centuries and
deserves a wider recognition than it commonly
" This book is addressed to all students of art, to
executing artists, and to the general public. It is
designed in the first place to give pleasure, without
which the study of art is impossible; and in the
second place to be serviceable to all serious students,
not only by the presentation of the most important
subjects, but also by the suggestion of others the
treatment of which lies outside the scope of an art
" For the benefit of the reader, the book is divided
in two parts. The lessons drawn from Greek
sculpture are presented first. The order may be
inverted, however, with the exception of Part I,
Chapters V-YHI, on the principles of relief sculp-
ture, which ought to be read before one enters on
the study of the Parthenon, Part II, Chapters XVIII
and XIX.
" This book contains no multitude of details.
Monuments which are omitted may be readily in-
serted, however, and may thus help to enforce the
lessons taught by those monuments which are dis-
cussed. After the pediments of the temple of Zeus
in Olympia, for instance, Part II, Chapter XVI, the
metopes of the same temple may be studied; and
in connection with the Parthenon, Part II, Chapters
XVIII and XIX, many contemporaneous temple
sculptures may find their place. In order to
facilitate such a use of the book, the author purposes
to issue a collection of about five hundred repro-
