Excerpt from Essays in History and Art

IN offering these Essays to the public, i have removed from them any passages and allusions that were of an ephemeral nature and also, when I had written several articles on different parts of the same subject, I have recast and fused them into one. In this way three separate articles have been recast and conjoined in the essay on the National Life of China; two, in Our Indian Empire; and two, in India: its Castes and Creeds. I have also recast the middle portion of the essay on Real and Ideal Beauty, incorporat ing passages from minor papers on the same subject; and have inserted two woodcuts, illustrating the principle of harmonic proportion as exemplified in the peerless edifice of the Parthenon of Athens.
