Title: Inscriptions
Description: Stationery Office Books, UK, 1976. First Edition, Paperback. Very Good Condition. 9780116704481 "39 Pages. Front and back cover is slightly scuffed. If the instinct to write one's name or leave one's mark on any available blank wall is not universal, it is at least very widespread all over Europe and in countries which have come under European influence. Greek mercenaries carved their names on the bases of the statues of Rameses 11 at Abu Simbel, the inhabitants of Pompeii scrawled their opinions on the walls of their town for archaeologists to find centuries later, the graffiti on medieval churches are being studied for the sake of the historical events they commemorate; nearer to our own time, Kilroy has left his mark throughout the modern world, and the walls near any bus stop and in every Underground station bear witness to the fact that it is still a living tradition." Size: 19.3 x 18 x 0.5 cm. 39 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Miscellaneous; ISBN: 0116704489. ISBN/EAN: 9780116704481. Inventory No: V295-1251.
