And in this strange, exotic land of seductive evils, where no one could be trusted, desire became for Erica the deadliest snare of all...

Sought, the Sphinx seems everywhere, whether the guardian of the pyramids on Egypt's Giza plateau or the beautiful man-eater with a deadly riddle, to be approached with awful caution. The Sphinx, that icon painted, sculpted, engraved, and exalted in poetry, fiction, and music, so impressed the philosopher Hegel that he pronounced the creature “the symbol of the symbolic itself.” With a wealth of illustrations, Book of the Sphinx confirms Hegel's lofty judgment, finding the Sphinx everywhere: in tragedies, paintings, opera, murder mysteries, brothels, bars, and advertisements. Pursuing the Sphinx through kaleidoscopic sightings and encyclopedic observations, Willis Goth Regier plumbs the symbol's mysteries, conducting the reader down ever more perplexing and intriguing paths. Wonderfully readable, his highly idiosyncratic tour of the ages and the arts leads at last to a conception of the Sphinx that embraces nothing less than all that is unknowable—proving once again that confronting a Sphinx is one of the most dangerous and exhilarating adventures of the imagination.

The sphinx is one of the most enigmatic and famous monuments of ancient Egypt. Commissioned by Chephren in the mid-3rd millennium BC as part of a funerary complex, this book traces the history of its construction, its function and religious significance, its relationship to other later sphinxes and its enduring symbolism. The arrival of Christianity really sealed the fate of the sphinx and Zivie-Coche continues the history of this monument through the Greco-Roman period and touches on the excavations carried out in and around the monument in the 20th century.

Inspired by the revelation that the Sphinx had been weathered by water and not by wind-blown sand and was, therefore, thousands of years older than the oldest civilisation known to man, Colin Wilson sets out to explore the remote depths of history. The compelling argument of this bestselling book is that, thousands of years before Ancient Egypt and Greece held sway, there was a great civilisation whose ships travelled the world and who possessed some knowledge system that offered a unified view of the universe, alien to modern man. In this fascinating exploration of the world at a time when, according to Plato, the 'lost civilisation' of Atlantis was destroyed, the author makes a ground-breaking attempt to understand how these long-forgotten peoples thought, felt and communicated on a universal plane.

"In this readable, exhaustively researched account, author Peter Webb brings Leonor Fini's provocative art and unconventional personal life, as well as the vibrant avant-garde world in which she revolved, vividly to life." "In Sphinx, Peter Webb, who knew her well and interviewed her extensively in the years before her death, provides a long overdue analysis and reassessment of her work, particularly in its relationship to surrealism and feminism." --Book Jacket.
