The seven wonders of the ancient world by Edgar James Banks( )

1 edition published in 1916 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Containing information and history about each of the seven Ancient Wonders, this volume features particularly detailed stories about the Lighthouse of Alexandria. For centuries, the Lighthouse of Alexandria was the tallest man-made structure on the planet. Measuring in at about 420 feet (128 meters), the edifice was certainly worthy of a spot on the list of Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Built sometime between 280 and 247 BC, the lighthouse was placed on the island of Pharos in Alexandria, Egypt. Pharos was a small island near the key port city of Alexandria. Legend mentioned that the people of the island were vicious pillagers who would destroy any ships that wrecked off its coast. Fearful of this problem, Ptolemy I had the lighthouse built to guide mariners sailing into port at night. The tower was constructed from colored stones held together by molten lead. Statues of Triton, the messenger of the Big Sea, were placed on each of the four corners of its base. Additionally, a statue of Poseidon, the god of the Sea, was positioned at the top of the lighthouse. Like each of the Ancient Wonders (aside from the Great Pyramid of Giza), the Lighthouse of Alexandria was destroyed. Badly damaged by earthquakes in 956, 1303 and 1323, the structure continued to wash away into the ocean until the top of the tower was swallowed completely in 1480. Today, historians and archaeologists continue to search the bottom of the ocean and the island of Pharos for pieces of the ancient structure. Mentions of the Wonder can be found in Julius Caesar's war accounts and even in CGI representations in recent films like Asterix & Obelix and Agora. While the lighthouse has been gone for over 500 years, it continues to mystify scholars and fascinate those who hear its story

Dutch fairy tales for young folks by William Elliot Griffis( )

1 edition published in 1918 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long ago, in Dutch Fairy Land, there lived a young mermaid who was very proud of her good looks. She was one of a family of mere or lake folks dwelling not far from the sea. Her home was a great pool of water that was half salt and half fresh, for it lay around an island near the mouth of a river. Part of the day, when the sea tides were out, she splashed and played, dived and swam in the soft water of the inland current. When the ocean heaved and the salt water rushed in, the mermaid floated and frolicked and paddled to her heart's content. Her father was a gray-bearded merryman and very proud of his handsome daughter. He owned an island near the river mouth, where the young mermaids held their picnics and parties and received the visits of young merrymen
