8 CAPT, E. RAYMOND Stonehenge and Druidism. By. E. Raymond Capt M.A., A.I.A., F.S.A. Scot., Archaeological Institute of America
Thousand Oaks, CA Artisan Sales 1979 0934666040 / 9780934666046 Soft Cover 
96 pages, many illustrations, maps and diagrams, pictorial wrappers, former owner's embossed stamp on title-page, else fine. From the publishers: This book deals with the age old question of: the purpose of Stonehenge who the master-builders were and when it was built. Stonehenge, standing in lonely majesty on England's great Salisbury Plain is wreathed in mystery. From the earliest times it has aroused the awe and curiosity of its visitors. What was its purpose? Who were the master builders? When was it built? Although not counted as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, Stonehenge does count as one of the most unique wonders of the world. A monument so old that it's true history was probably forgotten by classic times. Greek and Roman writers hardly mention it. There have been many folk legends and stories attached to that "Gigantic Pile" as it was called by ancient writers. In more modern times most scholars agree it served as some kind of ceremonial building or religious structure for ancient peoples. It is, however, only within the last century, that archaeological excavations and astronomical computations have yielded reliable information about its origin, history and purpose. From pottery shards, ancient burials and the silent stones themselves, have come the amazing saga of a race of colonizers who created a unique civilization, in Britain, over 2000 years before the birth of Christ. Stonehenge stands today, one signpost left along the way that identifies the Building Race. It bears witness to the vigour and vitality of a national religion, already passed from the primitive into the metaphysical stage, which embodied abstract ideas, astronomical observations and a high and pure code of ethics.

11 CULICAN, WILLIAM The First Merchant Ventures: The Ancient Levant in History and Commerce.
New York Mcgraw- Hill Book Co. , 1966 Hard Cover Good in Good dust jacket 
144 pages, well illustrated (some in color), maps, charts, cloth, dj, ex-library with usual library markings otherwise very good. From the publisher: In our own times of massive, effective communications we tend to overlook trade as a form of cultural cross-pollination. Yet, in the formative stages of Western civilization it was the merchant venturer, the trader, the seaman who was the emissary of culture, teaching and learning along the flourishing frontier of the market place. One of the earliest and most influential of these frontiers was the Syrian and Palestinian seaboard where - as early as 2000 B.C. - Egyptian and Babylonian, Canaanite, Hittite, and Greek met and traded and developed such innovations of culture as writing and bookkeeping. As commerce ebbed and flowed, so did the fortunes of the merchant venturers and, not too surprisingly, of their home nations. It is this fascinating interplay of early Levantine commerce and culture that Mr. Culican examines in the light of the most recent archaeological research.

15 EDWARDS, I.E.S. The Treasures of Tutankhamun.
Penguin Books, 1977 0140042873 / 9780140042870 Soft Cover 
Foreword by Lord Trevelyan. From the back cover: Betokening a reign so splendid that its wealth defies estimation, Tutankhamun's treasures epitomize the immemorial grandeur of Egypt. The discovery of the fabulous contents of Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922 was a high point in archaeology and the most important find ever made in the Valley of the Kings. To celebrate the discovery's fiftieth anniversary, the largest Tutankhamun exhibition ever to leave Egypt was held at the British Museum in 1972. Inspired by that exhibition, this volume recreates, in full color and in black and white, the tomb's sumptuous legacy.
