Selbstbiographie (Mit Illustrationen) (German Edition) by Heinrich Schliemann (Musaicum Books) 3.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 18 hours ago

Dieses eBook wurde mit einem funktionalen Layout erstellt und sorgfältig formatiert. Die Ausgabe ist mit interaktiven Inhalt und Begleitinformationen versehen, einfach zu navigieren und gut gegliedert. Heinrich Schliemann (1822 -1890) war ein deutscher Kaufmann und Pionier der Feldarchäologie. Als erster Forscher führte er Ausgrabungen im kleinasiatischen Hisarl?k durch und fand die von ihm und zuvor schon anderen Forschern hier vermuteten Ruinen des bronzezeitlichen Trojas. Im April 1868 begann Schliemann seine erste Forschungsreise nach Griechenland. Über Rom und Neapel reiste er nach Korfu und fahndete nach Spuren des dort laut Homer gestrandeten Odysseus. Sein unbekümmertes Vorgehen bei den ersten Grabungen in Hisarl?k hat Schliemann anfangs viel Kritik eingebracht. Dabei wurde übersehen, dass er sich nicht auf Vorbilder stützen konnte.

The Comstocks of Cornell: John Henry Comstock and Anna Botsford Comstock by Anna Botsford Comstock (Comstock Publishing Associates) 4.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

The Comstocks of Cornell is the autobiography written by naturalist educator Anna Botsford Comstock about her life and her husband's, entomologist John Henry Comstock -- both prominent figures in the scientific community and in Cornell University history. A first edition was published in 1953, but it omitted key Cornellians, historical anecdotes, and personal insights. Karen Penders St. Clair's twenty-first century edition returns Mrs. Comstock's voice to her book by rekeying her entire manuscript as she wrote it, and preserving the memories of the personal and professional lives of the Comstocks that she had originally intended to share. The book includes a complete epilogue of the Comstocks' last years and fills in gaps from the 1953 edition. Described as serious legacy work, the book is an essential part of Cornell University history and an important piece of Cornell University Press history.
