General Note

The book is a record of C.T. Newton's excavations at Halicarnassus in 1856, and his later work at Cnidus and Didyma. His expedition was financed by the British Government, who also allowed him the assistance of the architect R.P. Pullan and of military and naval engineers. One of the latter, R.M. Smith, identified the site of the famous Mausoleum, the tomb erected for Mausolus of Caria by his sister in 353 B.C.; and another, B. Spackman, made a photographic record of the excavations. Newton was one of the first archaeologists to have a photographer on his staff. In later years Newton became Keeper of the Greek and Roman Antiquities at the British Museum and Professor of Classical Archaeology at University College, London; and from 1881 to 1894 he was Antiquary to the Royal Academy.

The first volume of the published work contains the illustrative plates accompanying the work (see 05/462). These two volumes comprising volume II contain the text of the report. The text printer is named in the colophon: 'Cox And Wyman, Printers, Great Queen Street, Lincoln's-Inn Fields, London.'
