The National Quarterly Review, Vol. 16 : For December, 1867, and March, 1868 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The National Quarterly Review, Vol. 16: For December, 1867, and March, 1868 The number of portraits, then, cannot be regarded as a safe criterion of the esteem in which an Athenian author was held by his contemporaries. Human nature being the same at all times, one was doubtless as liable to be deceived in enter ing an Athenian studio in the time of Menander, as he would be today in entering a photograph gallery in Broadway. In the latter he would find twenty authors of the lowest or worst class - mere pretenders - for one of the higher or even third class - one who is entitled to be ranked in any class.
