Principles of Zoology, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Principles of Zoology, Vol. 1: Touching the Structure, Development, Distribution, and Natural Arrangement of the Races of Animals, Living and Extinct With Numerous Illustrations The design of this work is to furnish an epitome of the leading principles of the science of Zoology, as deduced from the present state of knowledge, so illustrated as to be intelligible to the beginner. No similar treatise now exists in this country, and, indeed, some of the topics have not been touched upon in the English language, unless in a strictly technical form, and in scattered articles. On this account, some of the chapters, like those on Embryology and Metamorphosis, may, at first, seem too abstruse for scholars in our common schools. This may be the case, until teachers shall have made themselves somewhat familiar with subjects comparatively new to them. But so essential have these subjects now become to a correct interpretation of philosophical zoology, that the study of them will hereafter be indispensable. They furnish a key to many phenomena which have been heretofore locked in mystery. Being intended for American students, the illustrations have been drawn, as far as possible, from American objects: some of them are presented merely as ideal outlines, which convey a more definite idea than accurate sketches from nature; others have been left imperfect, except as to the parts especially in question; a large proportion of them, however, are accurate portraits from original drawings. Popular names have been employed as far as possible, and to the scientific names an English termination has generally been given; but the technical terms have been added, in brackets, whenever misunderstanding was apprehended. Definitions of those least likely to be understood, may be found in the Index. The principles of Zoölogy developed by Professor Agassiz in his published works have been generally adopted in this, and the results of many new researches have been added.

Ice Age Art - 2826689769

This unique book explores the extraordinary sculpture and drawings created during the last European Ice Age, between 40,000 and 10,000 years ago the oldest known figurative art in the world. Over 100 objects are featured alongside stunning illustrations, including small but exquisite sculptures made from mammoth ivory, engraved drawings, and jewellery from the age of the great painted caves, in addition to celebrated masterpieces. Featured are the "Swimming Reindeer" (13,000 years old), the so called "Willendorf Venus" (25,000 years old) and the "Vogelherd horse" (32,000 years old), examining them in a new light. This compelling narrative is also illustrated with a wealth of contextual images, from classical sculpture to twentieth century painting and even contemporary advertising campaigns, which demonstrate surprising aesthetic parallels between these ancient works and familiar modern pieces. In this way, "Ice Age Art" will bring home the point that the minds that created these objects in all their diversity and inventiveness were modern minds like our own, capable of highly sophisticated thought and expression.

Laparoscopy in Children Springer Verlag

Medycyna > English Division

Many children are operated on by surgeons who are not pediatric specialists. And many of these surgeons are familiar with minimally invasive techniques, yet hesitate to conduct laparoscopy in young patients. This book provides the knowledge they require and gives technical advice concerning the performance of the most frequent laparoscopic procedures in small children. The text provides a step-by-step approach and technical guide with little text and many instructive drawings. Diagnostic criteria are also discussed. From the reviews: "This is a short, hard covered book that provides a practical guide to laparascopic surgery in children. ... The quality of the figures is excellent; they are simple, uncluttered and easy to follow. ... This is a concise and clearly presented book that would be a useful addition to the libraries of teaching institutions that perform paediatric laparoscopic procedures. Although its greatest value would be for the younger trainee in paediatric laparoscopic surgery, it also would be of use to general surgeons ... ." (S W Beasley, Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health, Vol. 39 (8), 2003) "This is a very practical booklet. It describes in short phrases the anaesthesia, the instruments, and the technique of the most common laparoscopic operations in children, and ends with a chapter on troubleshooting. ... The operations are systematically described step by step and the excellent illustrations are very helpful. ... It is a very useful guide for every surgeon who does, or plans to do, laparoscopic operations in children." (L. W. E. van Heurn and G. Kootstra, The British Journal of Surgery, Vol. 90 (12), 2003)

Blink of the Screen Corgi Books

In the four decades since his first book appeared in print, Terry Pratchett has become one of the world's best-selling and best-loved authors. Here for the first time are his short stories and other short form fiction collected into one volume. "A Blink of the Screen" charts the course of Pratchett's long writing career: from his schooldays through to his first writing job on the Bucks Free Press; to the origins of his debut novel, "The Carpet People"; and on again to the dizzy mastery of the phenomenally successful "Discworld" series. Here are characters both familiar and yet to be discovered; abandoned worlds and others still expanding; adventure, chickens, death, disco and, actually, some quite disturbing ideas about Christmas, all of it shot through with his inimitable brand of humour. With an introduction by Booker Prize-winning author A.S. Byatt, illustrations by the late Josh Kirby and drawings by the author himself, this is a book to treasure.

Ancient Greeks Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This accessible introduction surveys the land and peoples who gave us the Labyrinth, the Acropolis, the Iliad and Odyssey, Herodotus and Thucydides, Sappho and Sophocles, Aphrodite and Aristotle, and so much more. Using the full range of resources of art history, archaeology, and philology, this book details the familiar--mythic heroes and heroines, famous philosophers and poets, as well as classical art and architecture--and introduces the less-well-known aspects of ancient Greece, notably the civilizations of the Bronze and Dark Ages and even the earliest form of written Greek--Linear B. In addition, Stephanie Lynn Budin offers a full history of how the study of classical Greece has evolved from ancient times through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the present day. She covers ongoing questions and new directions in Greek studies, including Minoan religion, the role of women in early Greek cultures, the historical accuracy of Homer and Herodotus, and the role of Greece amongst its non-Greek neighbors. The Ancient Greeks includes a rich collection of illustrations, drawings, maps, and photographs, including detailed renderings of Knossos, the evolution of Greek sculpture and pottery, and even a section on ancient weaponry. The result is a superb companion for both newcomers and long-time Hellenophiles, revealing not only what we know about ancient Greece but how we know it and how these cultures continue to influence us.
