Practical Guide for Making Post Post-Mortem Examinations and for the Study of Morbid Anatomy Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Practical Guide for Making Post Post-Mortem Examinations and for the Study of Morbid Anatomy: With Directions for Embalming the Dead, and for the Preservation of Specimens of Morbid Anatomy The following work has been prepared with a view of supplying a want, the existence of which has long been felt by the author, both in his private practice and public teaching. No pretension is made of offering a complete work on Morbid Anatomy, the object having been, merely to present the practitioner and student with a practical guide for making post-mortem examinations, to give them hints as to what they are to look for in such cases, and, finally, to aid them in recognizing the various morbid appearances as they are exposed to view. The work is divided into four parts. Parts I, II and III, corresponding to the three great divisions of the body - the Head, Chest and Abdomen. Part IV, is devoted to miscellaneous subjects, and contains chapters on the Bones; Joints; Tumors; Effects of Poisons; Medico-Legal Autopsies ;On Embalming the Dead; and On the Preservation of Morbid Specimen. A few illustrative cases have been introduced, and occasional reference made to morbid specimens in the Museum of the Hahnemann College.

Description: Mike McNichols has created a marvelous fable about evangelism, spiritual formation, faith community, and ministry leadership in The Bartender. This is a study guide to that book. It was written by one who has led several discussion groups on The Bartender and who discovered that readers found it deeply fascinating. The issues it raises are so relevant to many contemporary conversations about how those who believe intersect and interact with those who may not . . . or those who do but don't know they do yet. Mike McNichol's choice to discuss these issues in the context of a fable made them accessible in ways that a more didactic approach would not have. As a result, this guide has been adapted for the use of a more general audience. Specifically, it's been formatted into twelve sessions for those who would wish to read, discuss it, and practice its principles together over a defined period of time. Of course, it can be adapted for other schedules and formats. Whether you're reading this on your own or as part of a group, The Bartender's Assistant is a helpful guide for the journey. Endorsements: ""My friend Tony Blair has taken my modest enterprise and created this wonderful study guide to help leaders and churches open up conversations about both the inward and outward life of the church. He has taken the jumbled furniture of my fictional house and offered a framework for a sense of order-not in the way that confines, but in the creative, intelligent way that he has for preparing things for movement and action. I'm grateful for his thoughtful work that has resulted in this study guide."" --from the Foreword by Michael McNichols About the Contributor(s): Anthony L. (Tony) Blair is a faculty member in leadership studies for Eastern University, Philadelphia. He is also co-senior pastor of Hosanna! A Fellowship of Christians in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. He is the author of Fire Across the Water: The Transatlantic Dimensions of the 18th Century Presbyterian Revivals (2010) and Church and Academy in Harmony: Models of Collaboration for the Twenty-First Century (2010).

Organized for ease of use by today's busy mental health clinicians, Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide describes the latest knowledge and clinical recommendations associated with menopause in a single, concise guide that is clearly written and comprehensive in scope. Menopause is about changeAbut it is also a normal life stage traversed by most women with little or no difficulty. Not all women have symptoms as they transition to menopause, and women with symptoms experience them in different combinations and levels of intensity. The management of perimenopause and menopause is also rapidly changing. The past 5 years have seen truly dramatic changes in our scientific knowledge of and medical recommendations for perimenopause and menopause. For example, until recently, hormone replacement therapy was highly advocated as an essential aspect of care for women in perimenopause and menopause. Even the definitions used to describe the different time periods and stages associated with natural (i.e., nonsurgical) menopause have changed over time and can be confusing. Thus, Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide uses the 1994 World Health Organization Scientific Group on Research in the Menopause terminology, augmented by more recent refinements made by the Stages of Reproductive Aging Workshop. The essential Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide sheds light on the complexity and constant change integral to the study and treatment of menopause, bringing together the current work of 14 internationally recognized menopause experts in psychiatry, neuroscience, gynecology, and internal medicine. After an introductory chapter sets the contexts of midlife in women, subsequent chapters in Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide cover the following topics: -The basic physiology of the menopausal transition and menopause. -The effects of gonadal hormones on the central nervous system, and in particular, depression, anxiety, and irritability during the menopausal transition and midlife. -New research findings and clinical advice about the effect of gonadal hormones and menopause on psychotic illness in women. -An examination of the medical aspects of and the gynecologic aspects of perimenopause and menopause. -A look beyond menopause to the psychopathology and psychotherapy of older women in various cultures. The timely information contained in Menopause: A Mental Health Practitioner's Guide will help mental health professionals to formulate current, best understanding and treatment for the psychological problems that some women experience as they traverse perimenopause and menopause.

'Internet Communication and Qualitative Research is a trailblazing introduction to data sources that will come to the fore in the new millennium. Its cogent discussion of the techniques, ethics and methods of analysis of Internet data should be read by every qualitative researcher' - David Silverman, Goldsmiths College 'The internet is exploding with possibilities for conducting social research. Mann and Stewart offer the first in-depth consideration of the prospects and potentials for doing qualitative research on-line. This wide ranging, clearly-written book is essential reading for researchers working at the cutting edge of qualitative methodology' - James A. Holstein, Marquette University 'This is e-scholarship. The book is a transformative project which brings the best skills of the old print scholarship to the cyberworld. The authors are no mere theoreticians - but hands-on net-users, who have made the imaginative leap to the world, and who have mapped the way for net research and researchers. The authors are pioneers in the realm of digit-crit - opening the way with their critical evaluation of the digital media and net research.They profile the skills required by the online researcher and evaluate the context in which they are used - in relation to privacy, security, ethics and legal considerations. They also take up issues of power; they explore the social and political implications of the digital media, (with specific reference to gender) and the role of the online researcher. An absolute must for cybercitizens and an indispensable guide for students, researchers, and knowledge workers in the world' - Dale Spender 'Mann and Stewart have prized open the mysteries of on-line qualitative research. For those new to this methodology the technology review demystifies; the social science research ethics issues are re-addressed with reference to the on-line situation; methods of conducting online focus groups and interviews, in particular, are detailed. The tone is both analytical and practical with a host of techniques suggested.I recommend this accessible text for all qualitative researchers, both academic and practitioner' - Rehan Ul-Haq, University of Birmingham Business School 'Here is the clear, useful guide to the Internet research needed by all of us interested in on-line relationships and research. The authors address such issues as ethics, confidentiality, the theory and practice of on-line research, and on-line power relationships (which will be of concern in distance learning plans and programs). A very valuable book.' - Cheris Kramarae, Center for the Study of Women in Society, University of Oregon 'Wonderful - "beyond the software" and into on-line interaction to aid and abet our qualitative research. This book shines the light. Mann and Stewart are to be congratulated in offering qualitative researchers effective and authentic ways forward through electronic communication. I'll use and recommend it!' - Gilly Salmon, Centre for Information and Innovation, Open University Business School 'Opens to view a whole new avenue for social research. Internet communication is the wave of the future. Mann and Stewart capture its potential with insight, caution, and consummate procedural skill.Pathbreaking in its area of research methodology! Students and researchers will be very pleased with its clarity and usefulness' - Jaber F Gubrium, Department of Sociology, University of Florida 'The authors have produced a timely and stimulating publication with handy explanations of Internet terms and qualitative research applications. This work should be made readily available not only for reference to academics and practitioners of marketing, but also to those with a lay interest in it' - Professor Len Tiu Wright, De Montfort University Internet Communication and Qualitative Research is the first textbook to examine the impact of Internet technology on qualitative research methods. Drawing on many pioneering studies using computer-mediated communication (CMC), the authors show how online researchers can employ Internet-based qualitative methods to collect rich, descriptive, contextually-situated data. They discuss the methodological, practical and theoretical considerations associated with such methods as: in-depth online interviewing, virtual focus groups, participant observation in virtual communities.This is a comprehensive and practical guide that: - reviews online research practice and basic Internet technology - looks in detail at the skills required by the online researcher - examines the ethical, confidentiality, security and legal issues involved in online research - considers the theoretical challenges surrounding data collected in a 'virtual venue' - addresses the social and cultural impact of researching online through a discussion of power, gender and identity issues in the virtual world. Internet Communication and Qualitative Research will be an indispensable guide for all students and researchers working in the digital age.

SOA Design Patterns PEARSON

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"SOA Design Patterns is an important contribution to the literature and practice of building and delivering quality software-intensive systems." - Grady Booch, IBM Fellow "With the continued explosion of services and the increased rate of adoption of SOA through the market, there is a critical need for comprehensive, actionable guidance that provides the fastest possible time to results. Microsoft is honored to contribute to the SOA Design Patterns book, and to continue working with the community to realize the value of Real World SOA." - Steven Martin, Senior Director, Developer Platform Product Management, Microsoft "SOA Design Patterns provides the proper guidance with the right level of abstraction to be adapted to each organization's needs, and Oracle is pleased to have contributed to the patterns contained in this book." - Dr. Mohamad Afshar, Director of Product Management, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle "Red Hat is pleased to be involved in the SOA Design Patterns book and contribute important SOA design patterns to the community that we and our customers have used within our own SOA platforms. I am sure this will be a great resource for future SOA practitioners." - Pierre Fricke Director, Product Line Management, JBoss SOA Platform, Red Hat "A wealth of proven, reusable SOA design patterns, clearly explained and illustrated with examples. An invaluable resource for all those involved in the design of service-oriented solutions." - Phil Thomas, Consulting IT Specialist, IBM Software Group "This obligatory almanac of SOA design patterns will become the foundation on which many organizations will build their successful SOA solutions. It will allow organizations to build their own focused SOA design patterns catalog in an expedited fashion knowing that it contains the wealth and expertise of proven SOA best practices." - Stephen Bennett, Director, Technology Business Unit, Oracle Corporation "The technical differences between service orientation and object orientation are subtle enough to confuse even the most advanced developers. Thomas Erl's book provides a great service by clearly articulating SOA design patterns and differentiating them from similar OO design patterns." - Anne Thomas Manes, VP & Research Director, Burton Group "SOA Design Patterns does an excellent job of laying out and discussing the areas of SOA design that a competent SOA practitioner should understand and employ." - Robert Laird, SOA Architect, IBM "As always, Thomas delivers again. In a well-structured and easy-to-understand way, this book provides a wonderful collection of patterns each addressing a typical set of SOA design problems with well articulated solutions. The plain language and hundreds of diagrams included in the book help make the complicated subjects of SOA design comprehensible even to those who are new to the SOA design world. It's a must-have reference book for all SOA practitioners, especially for enterprise architects, solution architects, developers, managers, and business process experts." - Canyang Kevin Liu, Solution Architecture Manager, SAP "The concept of service oriented architecture has long promised visions of agile organizations being able to swap out interfaces and applications as business needs change. SOA also promises incredible developer and IT productivity, with the idea that key services would be candidates for cross-enterprise sharing or reuse. But many organizations' efforts to move to SOA have been mired-by organizational issues, by conflicting vendor messages, and by architectures that may amount to little more than Just a Bunch of Web Services. There's been a lot of confusion in the SOA marketplace about exactly what SOA is, what it's supposed to accomplish, and how an enterprise goes about in making it work. SOA Design Patterns is a definitive work that offers clarity on the purpose and functioning of service oriented architecture. SOA Design Patterns not only helps the IT practitioner lay the groundwork for a well-functioning SOA effort across the enterprise, but also connects the dots between SOA and the business requirements in a very concrete way. Plus, this book is completely technology agnostic-SOA Design Patterns rightly focuses on infrastructure and architecture, and it doesn't matter whether you're using components of one kind or another, or Java, or .NET, or Web services, or REST-style interfaces. While no two SOA implementations are alike, Thomas Erl and his team of contributors have effectively identified the similarities in composition services need to have at a sub-atomic level in order to interact with each other as we hope they will. The book identifies 85 SOA design patterns which have been developed and thoroughly vetted to ensure that a service-oriented architecture does achieve the flexibility and loose coupling promised. The book is also compelling in that it is a living document, if you will, inviting participation in an open process to identify and formulate new patterns to this growing body of knowledge." - Joe McKendrick, Independent Analyst, Author of ZDNet's SOA Blog "If you want to truly educate yourself on SOA, read this book." - Sona Srinivasan, Global Client Services & Operations, CISCO "An impressive decomposition of the process and architectural elements that support serviceoriented analysis, design, and delivery. Right-sized and terminologically consistent. Overall, the book represents a patient separation of concerns in respect of the process and architectural parts that underpin any serious SOA undertaking. Two things stand out. First, the pattern relationship diagrams provide rich views into the systemic relationships that structure a service-oriented architecture: these patterns are not discrete, isolated templates to be applied mechanically to the problem space; rather, they form a network of forces and constraints that guide the practitioner to consider the task at hand in the context of its inter-dependencies. Second, the pattern sequence diagrams and accompanying notes provide a useful framework for planning and executing the many activities that comprise an SOA engagement." - Ian Robinson, Principal Technology Consultant, ThoughtWorks "Successful implementation of SOA principles requires a shift in focus from software system means, or the way capabilities are developed, to the desired end results, or real-world effects required to satisfy organizational business processes. In SOA Design Patterns, Thomas Erl provides service architects with a broad palette of reusable service patterns that describe service capabilities that can cut across many SOA applications. Service architects taking advantage of these patterns will save a great deal of time describing and assembling services to deliver the real world effects they need to meet their organization's specific business objectives." - Chuck Georgo, Public Safety and National Security Architect "In IT, we have increasingly come to see the value of having catalogs of good solution patterns in programming and systems design. With this book, Thomas Erl brings a comprehensive set of patterns to bear on the world of SOA. These patterns enable easily communicated, reusable, and effective solutions, allowing us to more rapidly design and build out the large, complicated and interoperable enterprise SOAs into which our IT environments are evolving." - Al Gough, Business Systems Solutions CTO, CACI International Inc. "This book provides a comprehensive and pragmatic review of design issues in service-centric design, development, and evolution. The Web site related to this book [] is a wonderful platform and gives the opportunity for the software community to maintain this catalogue..." - Veronica Gacitua Decar, Dublin City University "Erl's SOA Design Patterns is for the IT decision maker determined to make smart architecture design choices, smart investments, and long term enterprise impact. For those IT professionals committed to service-orientation as a value-added design and implementation option, Patterns offers a credible, repeatable approach to engineering an adaptable business enterprise. This is a must read for all IT architect professionals." - Larry Gloss, VP and General Manager, Information Manufacturing, LLC "These SOA patterns define, encompass, and comprise a complete repertoire of best practices for developing a world-class IT SOA portfolio for the enterprise and its organizational units through to service and schema analysis and design. After many years as an architect on many SOA projects, I strongly recommend this book be on the shelf of every analyst and technical member of any SOA effort, right next to the SOA standards and guidelines it outlines and elucidates the need for. Our SOA governance standards draw heavily from this work and others from this series." - Robert John Hathaway III, Enterprise Software Architect, SOA Object Systems "A wise man once told me that wisdom isn't all about knowledge and intelligence, it is just as much about asking questions. Asking questions is the true mark of wisdom and during the writing of the SOA Design Patterns book Thomas Erl has shown his real qualities. The community effort behind this book is huge meaning that Thomas has had access to the knowledge and experience of a large group of accomplished practitioners. The result speaks for itself. This book is packed with proven solutions to recurring problems, and the documented pros and cons of each solution have been verified by persons with true experience. This book could give SOA initiatives of any scale a real boost." - Herbjorn Wilhelmsen, Architect and Senior Consultant, Objectware "This book is an absolute milestone in SOA literature. For the first time we are provided with a practical guide on how the principle centric description of service orientation from a vendor-agnostic viewpoint is actually made to work in a language based on patterns. This book makes you talk SOA! There are very few who understand SOA like Thomas Erl does, he actually put's it all together!" - Brian Lokhorst, Solution Architect, Dutch Tax Office "Service oriented architecture is all about best practices we have learned since IT's existence. This book takes all those best practices and bundles them into a nice pattern catalogue. [It provides] a really excellent approach as patterns are not just documented but are provided with application scenarios through case studies [which] fills the gap between theory and practice." - Shakti Sharma, Senior Enterprise Architect, Sysco Corp "An excellent and important book on solving problems in SOA [with a] solid structure. Has the potential of being among the major influential books." - Peter Chang, Lawrence Technical University "SOA Design Patterns presents a vast amount of knowledge about how to successfully implement SOA within an organization. The information is clear, concise, and most importantly, legitimate." - Peter B. Woodhull, President and Principal Architect, Modus21 "SOA Design Patterns offers real insights into everyday problems that one will encounter when investing in services oriented architecture. [It] provides a number of problem descriptions and offers strategies for dealing with these problems. SOA design patterns highlights more than just the technical problems and solutions. Common organizational issues that can hinder progress towards achieving SOA migration are explained along with potential approaches for dealing with these real world challenges. Once again Thomas Erl provides in-depth coverage of SOA terminology and helps the reader better understand and appreciate the complexities of migrating to an SOA environment." - David Michalowicz, Air and Space Operations Center Modernization Team Lead, MITRE Corporation "This is a long overdue, serious, comprehensive, and well-presented catalog of SOA design patterns. This will be required reading and reference for all our SOA engineers and architects. The best of the series so far! [The book] works in two ways: as a primer in SOA design and architecture it can easily be read front-to-back to get an overview of most of the key design issues you will encounter, and as a reference catalog of design techniques that can be referred to again and again..." - Wendell Ocasio, Architecture Consultant, DoD Military Health Systems, Agilex Technologies "Thomas has once again provided the SOA practitioner with a phenomenal collection of knowledge. This is a reference that I will come back to time and time again as I move forward in SOA design efforts. What I liked most about this book is its vendor agnostic approach to SOA design patterns. This approach really presents the reader with an understanding of why or why not to implement a pattern, group patterns, or use compound patterns rather than giving them a marketing spiel on why one implementation of a pattern is better than another (for example, why one ESB is better than another). I think as SOA adoption continues to advance, the ability for architects to understand when and why to apply specific patterns will be a driving factor in the overall success and evolution of SOA. Additionally, I believe that this book provides the consumer with the understanding required to chose which vendor's SOA products are right for their specific needs." - Bryan Brew, SOA Consultant, Booz Allen Hamilton "A must have for every SOA practitioner." - Richard Van Schelven, Principal Engineer, Ericsson "This book is a long-expected successor to the books on object-oriented design patterns and integration patterns. It is a great reference book that clearly and thoroughly describes design patterns for SOA. A great read for architects who are facing the challenge of transforming their enterprise into a service-oriented enterprise." - Linda Terlouw, Solution Architect, Ordina "The maturation of Service-Orientation has given the industry time to absorb the best practices of service development. Thomas Erl has amassed this collective wisdom in SOA Design Patterns, an absolutely indispensible addition to any Service Oriented bookshelf." - Kevin P. Davis, Ph.D "The problem with most texts on SOA is one of specificity. Architects responsible for SOA implementation in most organizations have little time for abstract theories on the subject, but are hungry for concrete details that they can relate to the real problems they face in their environment. SOA Design Patterns is critical reading for anyone with service design responsibilities. Not only does the text provide the normal pattern templates, but each pattern is applied in detail against a background case study to provide exceptionally meaningful context to the information. The graphic visualizations of the problems and pattern solutions are excellent supplementary companions to the explanatory text. This book will greatly stretch the knowledge of the reader as much for raising and addressing issues that may have never occurred to the reader as it does in treating those problems that are in more common occurrence. The real beauty of this book is in its plain English prose. Unlike so many technical reference books, one does not find themselves re-reading sections multiple times trying to discern the intent of the author. This is also not a reference that will sit gathering dust on a shelf after one or two perusings. Practitioners will find themselves returning over and over to utilize the knowledge in their projects. This is as close as you'll come to having a service design expert sitting over your shoulder." - James Kinneavy, Principal Software Architect, University of California "As the industry converges on SOA patterns, Erl provides an outstanding reference guide to composition and integration-and yet another distinctive contribution to the SOA practice." - Steve Birkel, Chief IT Technical Architect, Intel Corp. "With SOA Design Patterns, Thomas Erl adds an indispensable SOA reference volume to the technologist's library. Replete with to-the-point examples, it will be a helpful aid to any IT organization." - Ed Dodds, Strategist, Systems Architect, Conmergence "Again, Thomas Erl has written an indispensable guide to SOA. Building on his prior successes, his patterns go into even more detail. Therefore, this book is not only helpful to the SOA beginner, but also provides new insight and ideas to professionals." - Philipp Offermann, Research Scientist, Technische Universitat Berlin, Germany "SOA Design Patterns is an extraordinary contribution to SOA best practices! Once again, Thomas has created an indispensable resource for any person or organization interested in or actively engaged in the practice of Service Oriented Architecture. Using case studies based on three very different business models, Thomas guides the reader through the process of selecting appropriate implementation patterns to ensure a flexible, well-performing, and secure SOA ecosystem." - Victor Brown, Managing Partner and Principal Consultant, Cypress Management Group Corporation In cooperation with experts and practitioners throughout the SOA community, best-selling author Thomas Erl brings together the de facto catalog of design patterns for SOA and service-orientation. More than three years in development and subjected to numerous industry reviews, the 85 patterns in this full-color book provide the most successful and proven design techniques to overcoming the most common and critical problems to achieving modern-day SOA. Through numerous examples, individually documented pattern profiles, and over 400 color illustrations, this book provides in-depth coverage of: * Patterns for the design, implementation, and governance of service inventories-collections of services representing individual service portfolios that can be independently modeled, designed, and evolved. * Patterns specific to service-level architecture which pertain to a wide range of design areas, including contract design, security, legacy encapsulation, reliability, scalability, and a variety of implementation and governance issues. * Service composition patterns that address the many aspects associated with combining services into aggregate distributed solutions, including topics such as runtime messaging and message design, inter-service security controls, and transformation. * Compound patterns (such as Enterprise Service Bus and Orchestration) and recommended pattern application sequences that establish foundational processes. The book begins by establishing SOA types that are referenced throughout the patterns and then form the basis of a final chapter that discusses the architectural impact of service-oriented computing in general. These chapters bookend the pattern catalog to provide a clear link between SOA design patterns, the strategic goals of service-oriented computing, different SOA types, and the service-orientation design paradigm.

Excerpt from Practical Chemical Analysis of Blood: A Book Designed as a Brief Survey of This Subject, for Physicians and Laboratory Workers Accurate data on the chemical composition of the blood, especially of the nonprotein fraction, are of comparatively recent origin, and are primarily the result of American observations with American methods. We owe largely to Folin, Benedict, and Van Slyke the development of the methods which have made this work possible. The practical information which these methods have made available has been especially helpful, since they have given us very valuable data on just those conditions on which the older methods of blood examination, cytology, bacteriology, serology, gave little information - reference is made principally to such constitutional conditions as nephritis, diabetes, and gout. Although it is the primary object of this chapter to consider those observations which have served as a guide to the diagnosis and treatment of disease, it may be well at the outset to indicate the rather broad scope which chemical methods have recently taken in the study of the blood. They have included methods for the blood volume, the blood proteins, serum albumin and globulin, improved methods of hemoglobin estimation; methods for the determination of the nonprotein nitrogen and its individual components, urea, creatinine, uric acid, amino acids, creatine and ammonia; methods for sugar, and for the lipoid constituents, fat, lecithin and cholesterol; methods for the mineral constituents, chlorides, phosphates, calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and iron; methods for the blood gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and oxygen, and methods for the hydrogen ion, the acetone bodies, phenol, and such enzymes as diastase, catylase, etc. As already pointed out, these methods have yielded especially helpful information in diabetes, nephritis, and gout, while the data obtained in renal diabetes, infantile conditions such as tetany and the diarrheal acidoses, in eclampsia, malignancy, cholelithiasis, pernicious anemia, disorders of the ductless glands and various urologic conditions, have given us a new point of view regarding many of these disorders. Before proceeding to a discussion of the pathologic variations in the composition of the blood, it may be well to indicate in tabular form the range of changes usually encountered in several common metabolic disorders. From an inspection of Table I it will be apparent that the tests furnish information of great value in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. Data are given on nine different blood constituents, the first five of which are regarded of special significance, and are arranged in order of their supposed clinical importance; viz., urea, sugar, CO2-combining power, creatinine and uric acid.

Excerpt from Giovanni Battista Piranesi: A Critical Study, With a List of His Published Works, and Detailed Catalogues, of the Prisons and the Views of Rome This work does not claim to be a general study of Piranesi's Life and Works. This is well supplied in three recent books - those of Mr. Arthur Samuel (London, 1910), Mr. Albert Giesecke (Leipzig, 1911), and M.Henri Focillon (Paris, 1918), the last being in many ways the most comprehensive, and the only one that offers a complete list of all Piranesi's etched plates. I was first attracted to the study of Piranesi in 1910 by the series of early states of the 'Prisons' acquired by the British Museum from the late Mr. Herbert Batsford. This led to my article in the Burlington Magazine of May, 1911, which was followed in the same place in December, 1913, and January and February, 1914, by notes on Piranesi's etched work in general, with a complete chronological list of his published works treated in somewhat more detail than in either Samuel's or Giesecke's book. It also gave a chronological list of the 'Views of Rome.' Focillon's Catalogue is definitive as far as it goes, but it attempts no detailed description of state. This would be an unnecessary labour with regard to the majority of the plates whose interest is perhaps antiquarian rather than artistic. But I have felt that a detailed catalogue of the 'Prisons' and 'Views of Rome,' which include the majority of Piranesi's most important plates, would be a useful guide to the collector who is often baffled by the varying qualities of these large prints owing to the difficulty of comparing impressions. Thus the earlier and more lightly etched impressions have until quite recently been less valued than the later rebitten states: a judgement which careful comparison may induce the amateur, at least in the case of many of the subjects, to revise. The Antichitŕ Romane dč Tempi della Reptibblica (Archi Trionfali) and the Paestiim series contain examples of equal beauty, but in the latter case the question of state hardly enters, and in the former the division is little more than rebiting and change of numbers in the later edition, details which are sufficiently indicated in my List of Piranesi's Published Works. The mere bulk of the volumes of Piranesi's work has made the necessary comparisons, extending over many years and in a variety of collections, a laborious business, and one that I should long ago have thrown up were it not for a natural aversion from being baffled even where the end to be achieved is small.
