First Edition Animals in Roman Life and Art (Aspects of Greek and Roman Life). Professor Toynbee's neew book offers the first comprehensive survey of animals in the Roma world that has been attempted for many years. It is a livey and entertaining study, with chapters on the social role, value and artistic representation of a range of creatures as diverse as the elephant and the frog, the rhinoceros and the tortoise. Full account has been taken of the many articles on individual aspects of the subject that have been published in the last decades and of the numerous new archaeological finds; and there is also an appendix on Roman veterinary medicime by R. E. Walker. The copious illustrations throw vivid light on the close relationship of the Romans to their animals and ensure that the book's appeal is not only to the classical scholar and specialist.

In a succession of scholarly essays, 18 experts delineate recent findings on the traditions and forms of this West African art. Identifying individual artists, tracing the development of stylistic trends, analyzing motifs, and linking Yoruba art with "praise poetry" (known as oriki) are some of the areas covered. Although academic, the text is nonetheless animated by the writers' great involvement with and enthusiasm for topics that yield ample material for rumination and research. The culminating essay by John Mason offers a particularly exciting examination of the development of Yoruba-American art and artists, from Cuba to New York City and South Carolina. Color illustrations will be included, along with black-and-white images of altars and shrines, carved trays, wooden heads, figurative posts and doors, and other artifacts. <br> This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US., Smithsonian Books, 1994-09
