This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892. Excerpt: ... Jahrbuch desArch. Itat., I., 1886, pi. 3,No.2;p.l6, K, (Michaelis). There is a drawing by Cipriani in the British Museum (Add. MSS. 21,118, No. 12). The best examples of the type are:--(a) A statue at Lansdowne House, London. Specimens of Ant. Sculpture, II., pi. 10. Cat. of Lansdowne Marbles, No. 83. (5) A bronze head from Herculaneum, now in the Museum at Naples. Comparetti, La Villa Ercolanese, pi. 8, fig. 1. (c) Compare the Amazon on the Phigaleian frieze (No. 522).
