Cambridge University Press, 2011. 124p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Library Collection - Archaeology. The archaeologist D. G. Hogarth (1862?1927) was, when he died, keeper of the Ashmolean Museum and president of the Royal Geographical Society. During his career he excavated in Cyprus, Egypt, Greece and Asia Minor. His books about his travels and excavations were well received and A Wandering Scholar in the Levant of 1896 (also reissued in this series) was described by T. E. Lawrence as 'one of the best travel books ever written'. This work, first published in 1909, contains six lectures on the origins of Ionia. Hogarth presents and evaluates the theories of the origins of Ionian culture that were popular at the time, and in the course of his discussion he delivers the results of some of his own excavations, including those at Ephesus in 1904. The work remains of interest to scholars and students of the region and of the history of archaeology. (Publisher's information). Condition: New. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 46521

Buchbeschreibung Buchzustand: Antiquarian. Thames and Hudson, London, 1962. 268p. Richly ills.(B&W photographs and line drawings). Cloth wrps. Name and date on free endpaper. Nice copy. 'This is one of the more distinguished additions to the Peoples and Places series. Cooks surveys the history, thought, and art of the Greeks in Ionia and the East from the Late Bronze Age to the Roman period. The subject does not offer a clear unity of material, topographically of culturally, and as a result the book is really two in one. The first is really about East Greece - not just Ionia - and here the reader gets the full value of the author's personal experience of the ground and of the problems of its archaeology and history. The archeological parts are especially good (.). Apart from the relations of the East Greeks with their immediate neighbors the story of the Greeks in the East is really another matter. (.) Various new points are well made throughout the book; many provoke thought, a very few criticism. (.) There is a fascinating digression (pp.191 ff.) on by-laws about drainage and rubbish disposal in Pergamon.' (JOHN BOARDMAN in The Classical Review (New Series), 1964, pp.82-83). Antiquarian.
