Title: Animal Farm
Author: George Orwell - Eric Arthur Blair, known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English novelist and journalist. His work is marked by clarity, intelligence and wit, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and belief in democratic socialism.

Considered perhaps the 20th century's best chronicler of English culture, Orwell wrote literary criticism, poetry, fiction and polemical journalism. He is best known for the dystopian novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four" (1949) and the allegorical novella "Animal Farm" (1945), which together have sold more copies than any two books by any other 20th-century author. His book "Homage to Catalonia" (1938), an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, is widely acclaimed, as are his numerous essays on politics, literature, language and culture. In 2008, The Times ranked him second on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945".

Orwell's work continues to influence popular and political culture, and the term Orwellian—descriptive of totalitarian or authoritarian social practices—has entered the vernacular with several of his neologisms, such as doublethink, thoughtcrime, and thought police

Book Details: "Animal Farm" is an allegorical and dystopian novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union. Orwell, a democratic socialist, was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow-directed Stalinism, an attitude that was critically shaped by his experiences during the Spanish Civil War. The Soviet Union, he believed, had become a brutal dictatorship, built upon a cult of personality and enforced by a reign of terror. In a letter to Yvonne Davet, Orwell described Animal Farm as a satirical tale against Stalin ("un conte satirique contre Staline"), and in his essay "Why I Write" (1946), wrote that Animal Farm was the first book in which he tried, with full consciousness of what he was doing, "to fuse political purpose and artistic purpose into one whole."

Title: Virgile. Les georgiques. Texte latin et version francaise de l'abbe Jacques Delille, gravutes sur bois j'Aristide Maillol
Author: Aristide Maillol - Aristide Joseph Bonaventure Maillol (December 8, 1861 – September 27, 1944) was a French sculptor, painter, and printmaker. [Courtesy Wikipedia.], Virgil - Publius Vergilius Maro, usually called Virgil or Vergil in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the "Eclogues" (or "Bucolics"), the "Georgics," and the epic "Aeneid." A number of minor poems, collected in the "Appendix Vergiliana," are sometimes attributed to him.

Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets. His "Aeneid" has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modeled after Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey," the "Aeneid" follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfill his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italy—in Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil's work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature, most notably the "Divine Comedy" of Dante, in which Virgil appears as Dante's guide through hell and purgatory.

Title: A History of Art in Ancient Egypt

Chipiez with the help of architect, hellenist, and architectural historian Georges Perrot wrote some of the most detailed description of the architectural achievements of the ancient world in such places as Egypt, Greece, Persia, Lydia, Lycia and Assyria. Chipiez would also create some of the most detailed virtual architectural drawings of the ancient monuments that once stood erect, bringing them to life.

Some of his prominent works with Perrot include "History of art in primitive Greece: Mycenian Art" in 1894, "A History of Art in Phoenicia and Its Dependencies" in 1885, "History of Art in Persia" in 1892, "A History of Art in Ancient Egypt" in 1883, "A History of Art in Chaldaea & Assyria" in 1884, "History of Art in Phrygia, Lydia, Caria, and Lycia" in 1892, and "History of art in Sardinia, Judæa, Syria, and Asia Minor" in 1890., Georges Perrot - Georges Perrot was a French archaeologist.

In 1874 he was elected to the Academie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, where he served as the permanent secretary from 1904 until his death. His most famous archaeological discovery was made while on an expedition to Asia Minor in 1861 and 1862, where he found a Greek translation of the document known as 'The Political Testament of the Emperor Augustus'. Perrot edited and contributed to the journal Revue archéologique. His works include "Souvenirs d'un voyage en Asie mineur" (1863) and the ten-volume "Histoire de l'art dans l'antiquité," which he wrote with Charles Chipiez (1882–1914).

Title: Twin City Tales: A Hermeneutical Reassessment of Tula and Chichen Itza
Author: Lindsay Jones
Publisher: University Press of Colorado
City: Niwot, Colorado
Year: 1995
Binding Style: Hardcover
Pagination: xii / 482 pages
Width: 9" Height: 11.5"
Book Details: Chichen Itza and Tula have numerous architectural similarities in a number of their constructions. This Toltec-Maya connection is widely considered powerful, unprecedented, and unique in Mesoamerica. Unlike most Maya sites, some of Chichen Itza’s buildings have the traits of the Toltecs, a historically powerful indigenous group from modern-day Mexico. The explanation of these similarities is a point of controversy among the scholars of the Toltec and Maya fields. Certain historical records caused many early scholars of the region to assume that a Toltec invasion from Tula, Hidalgo, usually placed in the ninth or tenth centuries, was responsible for a new wave of Mexican-style Maya buildings after the rest of the buildings in Chichen Itza were built. Other historical accounts imply a migration from Tula to Chichen Itza. An account of the Tula records a ruler of the Toltecs travelling east, which, paired with another account of Chichen that records a ruler from the west coming and teaching the Maya of that city many things, supported a direct influence of the Toltecs on the Maya around 900-1000 A.D. However, recent radiocarbon dating suggests that Chichen Itza’s ‘mexicanized’ and pure Maya constructions were built at the same time, and that both were built previous to any recorded Toltec invasion, and previous to the banishing of the semi-historical ruler. The precise connection between these two nations is unknown, and fiercely contested among scholars of Toltecs and Maya, but it is not disputed that no other counterparts to these two cities are found in the 800 mile distance between them. Established contradicting theories and a lack of information cause the precise relationship between Chichen Itza and Tula, Hidalgo to be fervently contested. [Courtesy Wikipedia.]
