The author's book is designed to show that the prehistoric and Hellenic sites in the island deserve much more notice than they have received. The author emphasises the peculiarities of Cypriote art and usage; the Greeks evidently had reason to regard the Cypriote " character " or style as exceptional. The author's illustrations of sculptures at Nicosia and in London show that his tempered praise of Cypriote art is justified.
