The 132 drawings catalogued document most of the major examples of ancient Roman pictorial art known to seventeenth-century Rome. They include early finding such as the Aldobrandini Wedding, the Nile mosaic from Palestrina, tha marble pictures from the Basilica of Junius Bassus, and later finds such as the Harbour Landscape (found in 1668) and the Tomb of Nasonii (1674). Detailed accounts are given of the discoveries, and a general introduction assesses the significance of the Cassiano assemblage within the wider context of contemporary antiquarian interest in ancient painting, its collectors and copyists. Cataogue entries describe and discuss the drawings in graet detail, relating them to the original mosaics and wallpaintings as they survive in their present state of preservation. All drawings catalogued are reproduced, mostly on a large scale and mostly in full colour. They are frequently accompanied by illustrations, also in colour, of the ancient originals.

Security Analysis on Wall Street The principles of investing have always been simple: buy low, sell high. The information needed to make these potentially lucrative decisions, however, is often hard to find, difficult to decipher, and not always reliable. This authoritative new book is the essential reference for students who want to learn the rational, rigorous analysis that is still the most successful way to evaluate securities. Security Analysis on Wall Street explains how the values of common stocks are really determined in today's marketplace and takes a comprehensive look at the entire security evaluation process, as well as the major valuation techniques currently being used by Wall Street professionals. Beginning with an overview of the environment in which stocks are issued, researched, bought, and sold, Hooke examines the roles of the various players, the rules of the markets, and the activities surrounding initial public offerings. He then probes the intricacies of analyzing and reporting on securities with proven methods for evaluating the merits of a stock. This sophisticated yet straightforward system teaches students how to assess profitable firms; understand marginal performers, leveraged buyouts, and corporate takeovers; and-most importantly-to break down different analyses and get the big answers: Is the security fairly valued, and why or why not?
