Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This is a spectacular glimpse of 20 ancient architectural wonders representing various civilizations from ancient history. A small format was selected (about 24 cm. high), yet this volume is packed with superb illustrations of artifacts and short, interesting discussions of the cultural milieu of each site. Each monument selected includes an area photograph of the monument as it looks today, enhanced by an acetate overlay supplying reconstructions of original features. For most libraries; it will appeal to readers interested in ancient history, archaeology, and the artistic splendor of the ancient world.

Format: Hardcover
A man loaned this book to a friend of mine. She immediately ordered it and showed it to me. I immediately ordered it also. I used this book to teach a children's class today. One of the parents saw it and had me order them a copy.
I especially enjoy the pictures of places I have visited. To see how these places could have looked originally with the artist's renders overlaying the current pictures is amazing.
Great teaching tool for adults as well as children. As they say, "a picture is worth 1,000 words."

Format: Hardcover
A unique book for lovers of ancient civilizations. The acetate overlays restore present day photographs of ruins to their original colorful glory, as they might have looked back then. Anyone who has ever picked this book up off my coffee table has loved it. The acetate overlays bring back nostalgic memories of browsing through the Britanica as a child.

I bought this book for my young granddaughter who finds it completely fascinating. I thought the book might be a bit dated but to her young eyes it's not. There's nothing like the visual to take her through time and it's done splendidly here. She's only 8 years old but she's already planning to visit every place in the book!

Ideal gift for my brother who enjoys and basks in Egyptian History. To see what the ancient wonders would have looked like in their prime, is a joy for any young mind!

A Great visual! Shows the ruins as they are now, and how they most likely were when they were first completed.
