Preface: "The main thesis, continuity in ancient European sculpture, has been treated within the time-limits offered by the commencement of Alexander's conquests and the foundation of the Roman Empire ; the story of the eastward spread of Greek art cannot be so compressed, for a sketch of sculpture in the Oriental provinces of Alexander's successors must be writer with a glance forward at monuments of the Roman period, while it would be absurd to break of an account of Indian Hellenism at Augustus' time, when the movement had not attained full growth and had not begun to supply the Far East with its hybrid style of Greek inspiration." The author was the brother of T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).
