Despatches of Michele Suriano and Marc' Antonio Barbaro, Venetian ambassadors at the court of France, 1560-1563 by Venice (Republic : To 1797)( Book )

27 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edited by the retired politician and archaeologist Sir Austen Henry Layard (1817-94), this 1891 publication reproduces the despatches of Michele Suriano and Marcantonio Barbaro, Venetian ambassadors to France in 1560-1 and 1561-4 respectively. Addressed to the doge of Venice, the documents provide valuable accounts of one of the most fascinating periods of French history, covering the death of Francis II, the accession of Charles IX, the regency of Catherine de' Medici, and the negotiations for the marriage of Mary, Queen of Scots. The documents appear in their original Italian and in English translation. Evident in Suriano's and Barbaro's letters is the underlying tension between French Catholics and Protestant Huguenots, which would culminate in the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572. The book was produced for the Huguenot Society of London, and Layard, the Society's first president, was himself of Huguenot descent

Nineveh and its remains : the gripping journals of the man who discovered the buried Assyrian cities by Austen Henry Layard( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fascinating history of the lost cities of the Middle East. In the middle of the nineteenth century, British archeologist Austen Henry Layard uncovered parts of several ancient Assyrian cities buried beneath the earth, including the capital of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, Nineveh. Nineveh was one of the greatest cities of its time and was an important religious center around 3000 BC. Commerce and religion thrived in the city, which was decorated with ornate stone carvings and reliefs and boasted well-defended walls and an aqueduct. However, the city was sacked in 612 BC, and its citizens were either deported or murdered. From that time forward, the city remained unoccupied, until Layard's excavation in the mid-1800s brought its treasures back into the world. Layard, in this stunningly honest account, describes his journeys around Asia Minor, traveling by caravans to remote places with unfamiliar cultures, religious practices, and customs. He recounts discovering the vast city in the land of Nimrod, and excavating Bas-reliefs, winged lions, tombs, and large stone wall carvings, all of which were a part of the British Museum's excavation and subsequent transfer to London. In this stunning new edition, Layard's observations paint an important picture of these ancient civilisations and the West's quest to unearth this part of our human past."--Back cover
