Prof. Henao-san mentioned in his mail “Cosmos” by Carl Sagan. The book influenced his life and perhaps is responsible for his travels to Egypt to find health books originated in ancient knowledge.
He also mentioned “Ptolemaic Alexandria” by Fraser.
I borrowed the three volume books about Alexandria from a library on the shore of Lake of Galilee.
I leaf through them and gaze at the view from my studio window; I see the valley and hill, cypress trees and some cows. Outlying in the horizon is the city of Nazareth.
I think to myself: I needed to travel all the way to Kyoto to find this book about my neighbors.
My story about Alexandria Library starts here.
