The life and work of Francis Willey Kelsey : archaeology, antiquity, and the arts by John Griffiths Pedley( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President of the Archaeological Institute of America, professor at the University of Michigan from 1889 to 1927, and president of the American Philological Association, Francis Kelsey was crucially involved in the founding or growth of major educational institutions. He came to maturity in a period of great technological change in communications, transportation, and manufacturing. Kelsey took full advantage of such innovations in his ceaseless drive to promote education for all, to further the expansion of knowledge, and to champion the benefits of the study of antiquity. A vigorous traveler around the United States, Europe, and the Mediterranean, Kelsey strongly believed in the value of personally viewing sites ancient and modern and collecting artifacts that could be used by the new museums and universities that were springing up in the United States. This collecting habit put him in touch with major financiers of the day, including Charles Freer, Andrew Carnegie, and J.P. Morgan, as he sought their help for important projects

In [this book, the author] explores the development of Greek art and civilization across three millennia, from the enigmatically beautiful Cycladic figurines and Cretan jugs of the Bronze Age to the baroque sculptures, mosaics, and buildings of the Hellenistic period. [The book] includes material on the latest archaeological discoveries, among which are the recently unearthed seven-century B.C. Statue of a "kore" found on the island of Thera and a marble sarcophagus decorated with scenes showing the sacrifice of Polyxena. The book also provides expanded coverage of the art of Macedon, while new issue-based box features serve to bring Greek culture ... to life for the contemporary reader.-Back cover
