Description:

However imposing be the attributes with which time has invested the sages and the heroes of antiquity, the brightness of their fame has been eclipsed, by the splendour of his reputation ; and neither the partiality of rival nations, nor the vanity of a presumptuous age, has ventured to dispute the ascendency of his genius.
