Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An antiquarian or antiquary is an aficionado of antiquities or things of the past. Also, and most often in modern usage, an antiquarian is a person who deals with or collects rare and ancient "antiquarian books." More narrowly, the term is often used for those who studied history with special attention to "antiques," meaning ancient objects of art or science as physical traces of the past. Antiquarianism is usually considered to have emerged in the Middle Ages (see History of archaeology), though antiquarian writings are also an important form of literature in ancient Rome. By the 19th century, antiquarianism had become transformed and divided into academic disciplines including archaeology, philology, literature studies and art history.show more
