1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 416 libraries worldwide
In this book, which was written under Schliemann's supervision and was published shortly after his death, the dazzling accumulation of Schliemann's many findings has been systemized by Dr. Schuchhardt. He also updates them, as Schliemann uncovered so much and was a tireless worker that he sometimes did not know precisely what he had found. After a short description of Schliemann's life, Dr. Schuchhardt gives detailed accounts of Schliemann's discoveries at Troy, Tiryns, and Mycenae. The great treasures found at Troy and Mycenae are thoroughly described, as well as Schliemann's experimental method of unearthing them. All of these findings are illustrated by hundreds of illustrations, diagrams and maps. -- Book jacket (inside flap)

A modern priestess of Isis by Vsevolod Sergeevich Solovʹev( Book )
15 editions published between 1895 and 2011 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
This book by the Russian novelist Vsevolod Sergeyevich Solovyov (1849-1903), translated and abridged by Walter Leaf (1852-1927) and published in 1895, reflects on the life of Madame Helena Blavatsky (1831-1891), co-founder of the theosophy movement in the United States. Originally published over eight months in literary magazine Russy Vyestnik ('Russian Messenger'), the book considers the controversy that engulfed Blavatsky in her final years over displays of her 'phenomena'. Solovyov was living in Paris in 1884 and researching spiritualist literature when he met Blavatsky (whose work was known in Russia), but he became disillusioned with both her and her movement. Leaf, a classical scholar and fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, undertook the translation for the Council of the Society for Psychical Research, which had investigated Blavatsky's work. This account now provides a window on to the life of one of Europe's most controversial nineteenth-century spiritual leaders

More than any other Persian poet, it is perhaps Hafiz who accesses the mystical, healing dimensions of poetry. With this collection of 250 of Hafiz's most intimate poems, translator Ladinsky has succeeded in capturing the essence of one of Islam's greatest poetic and religious voices. Each line imparts the qualities of this spiritual teacher: an audacious love that empowers lives, profound knowledge, wild generosity, and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature.--From publisher description
