Description:     

What is the difference, it may be asked, between a maze and a labyrinth? Why "Cretan Labyrinth" and "Hampton Court Maze"?
The object of this book is simply to provide a read-able survey of a subject which, in view of the lure it has exercised throughout many ages and under a variety of forms, has been almost entirely neglected in our literature—the subject of mazes and labyrinths treated from a general and not a purely archæological, horticultural, mathematical, or artistic point of view.
Since its first publication, it still remains unique in the exploration of labyrinths and mazes. More than 200 illustrations support this scholarly exploration and an exhaustive list of over 290 references offers an Ariadne's thread in the study of this topic.
