Excerpt from Essays on the Art of Pheidias
In looking back upon the obligations incurred in the writing of a book, most authors must feel how much they owe to the more or less direct assistance of others. AS the acquisition of knowledge is continuous, so is the incurring of obligations to others constant. I can but look back with gratitude upon the kindness shown me in my student days by my teacher in archaeology, the late Prof. K. B. Stark, of Heidelberg, and after that to the advantages derived from the attendance at Prof. Overbeck's classes and lectures at Leipzig. To Prof. Brunn, of Munich, I am particularly indebted for the stimulus and encouragement as well as much valuable information he has tendered me for some years past.
