The Black Obelisk: A Novel

The Black Obelisk: A

From the author of the masterpiece All Quiet on the Western Front, The Black Obelisk is a classic novel of the troubling aftermath of World War I in Germany.A hardened young veteran from the First World War, Ludwig now works for a monument company, selling stone markers to the survivors of deceased loved ones. Though ambivalent about his job, he suspects there’s more to life than earning a living off other people’s misfortunes.A self-professed poet, Ludwig soon senses a growing change in his fatherland, a brutality brought upon it by inflation. When he falls in love with the beautiful but troubled Isabelle, Ludwig hopes he has found a soul who will offer him salvation—who will free him from his obsession to find meaning in a war-torn world. But there comes a time in every man’s life when he must choose to live—despite the prevailing thread of history horrifically repeating itself.“The world has a great writer in Erich Maria Remarque. He is a craftsman of unquestionably first rank, a man who can bend language to his will. Whether he writes of men or of inanimate nature, his touch is sensitive, firm, and sure.”—The New York Times Book Review

Egyptian Obelisks (Classic Reprint)

Egyptian Obelisks (Classic

Excerpt from Egyptian ObelisksAt the request of Lieut-Commander Gorringe I long ago promised to prepare for him an account of the transactions which led to his undertaking the important operation so clearly and so fully described by him in this book. From that promise I may hold myself released. He has embodied all the essential features of these transactions in the admirable narrative which has grown under his hands, as I hoped that it would, into a full and interesting history of the Egyptian obelisks.The pains and skill with which this history has been constructed out of the few and fragmentary records which remain to us of these august monuments, illustrate the spirit in which Lieut-Commander Gorringe accepted and executed the trust confided to him by Mr. Vanderbilt in the interest and for the benefit of the people of New York.It is easy, and of course it is becoming, to applaud the success of such an enterprise.But no man knows so well as I do the discouragements and difficulties through which success was won, and it appears to me to be my duty, therefore, to bear witness here once for all to the absolute simplicity of purpose and single-minded public spirit to which New York is indebted for the, possession of the great obelisk of Alexandria. No arguments were needed to comm...

A Short History of the Egyptian Obelisks (Classic Reprint)

A Short History of the Egyptian Obelisks (Classic

History of theE gyptian Obelisks generally; and more particularly of those now standing. To do this it has been necessary to compare the accounts of many writers, and the measurements of various authors, but the result of such a comparison is far from satisfactory ;in truth there is very little agreement between them; and there are several statements which cannot be reconciled with each other. Under these difficulties, I have had to rely chiefly upon the measurements of Bonomi,he being professionally a sculptor as well as anE gyptologist, and, therefore, possessing a double guarantee against liability to errors of detail. With regard to the identifications of the obelisks mentioned by Pliny with those now standing in Rome, it is hardly possible to be quite certain as to any special monument, except perhaps theO belisk of the Circus Maximus. The original text of Pliny is very vague, and the judgment of Zoega is not wholly to be depended upon.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historic...

CBAM Obelisco in Marmo Bianco Carrara e Nero Portoro con Sfere White and Black Italian Marble Classic Obelisk Whith Ornamental Orbs Sculpture Made in Italy H.47CM

CBAM Obelisco in Marmo Bianco Carrara e Nero

Refined obelisk made of white Carrara marble and black marble, enriched with marble orbs. The preciousness of the material and the elegance of the shape blend in a unique, versatile and elegant object. Made by hand in Italy. The obelisk owes its birth to the ancient Egyptian civilization, but has been employed in the architecture of many cultures through the centuries up to today. The Egyptians believed that Ra, the Sun god, dwelled in them and used to place them in pairs at the entrance of the temples and at specific points in the cities in order to foster their fertility and the circle of benevolent energies. The city of Rome has 9 original Egyptian obelisks, which were subtracted during the conquest of Egypt. It is a handmade article, entirely produced in Italy. Any imperfections and differences with the image are to be considered a guarantee of the uniqueness of the object and of the material.
