Impressions and Comments free pdf Excerpt from Impressions and Comments: Second Series 1914-1920 So it was that even in the romantic days of the semi-barbarous Elizabethan age, as we choose to suppose it, the end of dinner was announced by ... a silver basin Full of rose-water and bestrewed with flower. And that in the classic days that fell more than a thousand years earlier Athenaeus brought together such a vast collection of refined luxuries to his marvellous Banquet- and that long before Homer the men of Crete constructed their sanitary conveniences on exactly the same principles which it is the boast of modern hygiene to devise, while the costumes of their women, whose portraits were first lately revealed, evoked the surprised comment, "But they are Parisian!" And now, in an age too far back to measure by Human records, long before the traditional date of the creation of the World, we find men and women going to the dentist's to have their teeth stopped with gold. We see here what Gourmont has called, perhaps a little pompously, "the Law of Intellectual Constancy," according to which there has always been the same amount of intellect in the world.
