Prax-ag'p-ras, [Upa^ayopaf,] an eminent Greek phy-
sician of Cos, lived about 300 B.C. He was noted for his
skill in anatomy, and appears to have been the first who
explained the difference between veins and arteries. He
wrote several works, of which only a few fragments are
extant. Among his pupils was Herophilus.

was a pupil of Theophrastus, and a teacher of Epicurus.

See PRELLER, "De Praxiphane," 1842.

Fraxitele. See PRAXITELES.

Frax-it'e-les, [Gr. Ilpa&rt^c ; Fr. PRAXITELE,
pRiks'e'til',] one of the greatest of Grecian sculptors,
flourished about 360 B.C. The time and place of his
birth are unknown. He was probably a contemporary
of Apelles, and an Athenian. According to Pausanias,
he lived three generations after Alcamenes. The name
of his master has not been preserved. Praxiteles is
regarded as the founder of a school, or the author of a
new style of art. Ancient writers represent him as cele-
brated for refinement and softness of contour, grace in
attitude, and delicacy in the expression of tender affec-
tions. Cicero considered the expression which animated
the heads of Praxiteles as one of the most admirable
and difficult results which human skill could attain.
Among his best works in bronze were a statue of Bac-
chus, a Satyr or Faun, and a statue of Apollo, called
" Sauroctonos." An ancient copy (in marble) of the last
work is preserved in the Vatican. His master-piece was
a marUe statue of Venus (of Cnidos) without drapery,
which was destroyed by fire at Constantinople about 475
A.D. No work of Grecian sculptors, except the Jupiter
of Phidias, appears to have been so celebrated as this
Venus of Cnidos. He produced also a statue of Venus
draped, and a marble statue of Cupid, which was praised
by Pliny. His statue of Hermes was in 1878 recovered
from the ruins at Olympia. Of this statue the right arm
is lost. It is justly regarded as one of the most precious
relics of ancient art.

Prescott, (WILLIAM,) COLONEL, an American officer
of the Revolution, born at Groton, Massachusetts, in
1725, was a brother of Oliver, noticed above. He fought

where he appears to have had the chief command, and
in other important engagements. Died in 1795.

Prescott, (WILLIAM,) LL.D., an American jurist,
son of the preceding, was born at Pepperell in 1762. He
was appointed in 1818 a judge of the court of common
pleas. He enjoyed a high reputation for legal attainments.
He was the father of William H. Prescott, the historian.
Died in 1844.

Prescott, (WILLIAM HICKLING,) an eminent American
historian, a son of the preceding, and grandson of Colonel
Prescott who commanded at Bunker Hill, was born at
Salem, Massachusetts, on the 4th of May, 1 796. Both his
parents were remarkable for their high moral qualities.
His father was distinguished for his manly beauty, as
well as for the dignity and gentleness of his character.
His mother, originally Miss Catherine Greene Hickling,
was a woman of great energy, vivacity, and active be-
nevolence ; and to her influence her son appears to have
owed not only much of the happiness of his life, but also
some of those admirable moral traits which formed the
crowning ornament to his rare intellectual endowments.
In the summer of 1808 his father removed to Boston,
and the following autumn sent his son to what was then
regarded as the best classical school in New England. It
was kept by Dr. Gardiner, an excellent scholar, who had
been educated in England under the celebrated Dr. Parr.
In 1811 young Prescott entered the Sophomore class
at Harvard College. In his knowledge ol Greek and
Latin he was far in advance of most of the members of
his class ; but he had no fondness for mathematics, and
never attained any proficiency in mathematical studies.
During his Jur.ior year at college an accident befell him
which was destined to influence the whole of his subse-
quent life. One day in the Commons Hall, while the
students as too often happened after the professors had
left the table were indulging in a rude frolic, Prescott
rose to go out of the room, but, attracted by the tumult
behind him, suddenly turned his head to see what it
was. At that instant a hard piece of bread, thrown at
random, struck him on his left eye, which, under the
peculiar circumstances, having no warning, was open,
so that nothing not even the eyelid was interposed
to mitigate the blow. He instantly fell prostrate and
powerless, as if the brain itself had received a severe
concussion. After some weeks he was able to resume
hi* studies ; but the sight oi his left eye though this
was to appearance unchanged was gone forever.



This early misfortune, while it tended to check his
somewhat exuberant vivacity, far from discouraging him
in the pursuit of his studies, seemed to excite hi him
a more earnest and determined resolution to become
a respectable scholar. He graduated in August, 1814,
and soon after commenced the study of law. But the
excessive use of his remaining eye induced a severe
inflammation in the organ, followed by opacity of the
cornea, so that for some weeks the power of v ; sion was
completely lost.

Among the many interesting and admirable traits
in Mr. Prescott's character, perhaps none is more re-
markable than the invincible cheerfulness and heroic
resignation with which he bore the frequent and severe
suffering and the life-long privations to which he was
subjected in consequence of the injury of hU sight.

In the hope of improving his general health, which
had been seriously impaired by confinement, and also of
indirectly benefiting his eyes, he was induced to under-
take a voyage to Europe. He set out in the autumn of
1815. He remained abroad nearly two years, visiting
England, France, and Italy. His sight, though not
strong enough to permit him to read much, seems to
have been sufficient to give him a vivid enjoyment of
the various scenes and places through whirh he trav-
elled ; but his health appears not to have been benefited
by his foreign tour, and in the summer of 1817 he re-
turned to his native country. He now decided to aban-
don the law and devote himself wholly to literature.
His eye, however, was so irritable and feeble that he was
obliged to pass much of his time in a darkened room,
with barely light enough to admit of some one reading
to him, this being now his only means of cultivating
an acquaintance with his favourite authors.

In May, 1820, Mr. Prescott was married to Miss Susan
Amory ; and the union appears to have been a singularly
happy one. About 1821 he commenced a systematic
course of reading, (by the ear,) which was to embrace
the works of the best English prose writers from Roger
Ascham to the present day, and afterwards the best
productions of the literatures of France and Italy. He
appears to have enjoyed with a peculiar zest the great
works of Italian genius, and especially the " Divina Corn-
media" of Dante. He seems to have taken less delight
in the celebrated authors of France, though he admired
Montaigne and Pascal, and, above all, La Fontaine and
Moliere. In the autumn of 1824 he commenced in
earnest the study of that magnificent language and lite-
rature which have been immortalized by the genius of
Lope de Vega and Cervantes. " This," says Mr. Tick-
nor, " was the opening of the Spanish campaign, which
ended only with his life." He had at one time enter-
tained the design of writing a sort of general history
of Italian literature ; but this was now abandoned lor
labour in a different field. After "long choosing," to
adopt the words of Milton, "and beginning late," he at
last decided, in January, 1826, to write the " History of
Ferdinand and Isabella," which, eleven years later, was
published, in three 8vo volumes, simultaneously in Bos-
ton and in London. The success of the work was of the
most flattering kind, and at once placed him in the very
highest rank of contemporary historians. After six
years of additional labour, appealed his " Conquest of
Mexico," (3 vols. 8vo, 1843.) Four years afterwards he
gave the world his "Conquest of Peru," (2 vols. 8vo.)
In 1845 appeared a volume of his "Miscellanies," con-
sisting of contributions to the " North American Review."
In 1850 he made a short visit to Europe. Soon after his
return he commenced the " History of the Reign of
Philip II. of Spain," a work which he did not live to
complete, although the first three volumes were published
in his lifetime, the first two having appeared in 1855,
the third in 1858. The entire work was designed to
be included in 6 vols. 8vo. The third volume was pub-
lished in the summer of 1858, after the occurrence of
his first slight apoplectic attack, (February 4, 1858,) fron-
which he seemed speedily to recover. He resumed hii
literary labours, but was forced to limit himself to the
lightest kind of work ; and he never afterwards had that
enjoyment in his studies which he had experienced in
previous years. On the 28ih of January, 1859, he was
