001487001487: No Jacket as Issued. "This book tries to describe what an intelligent person would see and hear in ancient Athens, if by some legerdemain he were translated to the fourth century B. C. And conducted about the city under competent guidance. ... The year 360 B. C. Has been selected as the hypothetical time of this visit, not because of any special virtue in that date, but because Athens was then architecturally almost perfect, her civic and her social life seemed at their best, the democratic constitution held its vigor, and there were few outward signs of the general decadence which was to set in after the triumph of Macedon. At the time of original publication in 1914, William Stearns Davis was Professor of Ancient History in the University of Minnesota. " Boards are red cloth with black embossed titles and decoration on the front and gold gilt spine titles and decoration (slightly faded) .
