Стр. 322 - Thy form stupendous here the gods have placed, Sparing each spot of harvest-bearing land; And with this mighty work of art have graced A rocky isle, encumber'd once with sand ; And near the pyramids have bid thee stand : Not that fierce Sphinx that Thebes erewhile laid waste, But great Latona's servant mild and bland ; Watching that prince beloved who fills the throne Of Egypt's plains, and calls the Nile his own. That heavenly monarch [who his foes defies], Like Vulcan powerful [and like Pallas...

Стр. 169 - Nummulites are so called from their resemblance to a piece of money — they vary in size from that of a crown piece to microscopic littleness ; and occupy an important place in the history of fossil shells, on account of the prodigious extent to which they are accumulated in the later members of the secondary, and in many of the tertiary strata. They are often piled on each other nearly in as close contact as the grains in a heap of corn. In this state they form a considerable portion of the entire...
Стр. 246 - The style of building in the Second Pyramid is inferior to that of the First ; and the stones used in its construction were less carefully selected, though united with nearly the same kind of cement...
Стр. 444 - Arabs, who had assembled to receive us upon our landing, were much amused by the eagerness excited in our whole party, to prove who should first set his foot upon the summit of this artificial mountain.

Стр. 452 - And the Lord spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
