At the left of the opening was a dark and deep angle
I had met, however, with many angles
in the wall, and thus I could form no guess at the shape of the vault; for vault I could not help supposing it to be.
Instead of making use of the square or rectangle, as has been done to this time, you will suppose your place inclosed in a regular hexagon, this polygon having the advantage of offering more angles
than the quadrilateral one.
In the same way, the angle
formed by the rope with the vertical axis of the machine, indicates the velocity.
Four large and gorgeous Sevres vases, in which bloom a profusion of sweet and vivid flowers, occupy the slightly rounded angles
of the room.
I had only three left, and we saw that we were in the angle
of the far corner of the chamber, a fact that accounted for our not having noticed the hollow sound of the place during our former exhaustive examination.
There remains to-day but a very imperceptible vestige of the Place de Grève, such as it existed then; it consists in the charming little turret, which occupies the angle
north of the Place, and which, already enshrouded in the ignoble plaster which fills with paste the delicate lines of its sculpture, would soon have disappeared, perhaps submerged by that flood of new houses which so rapidly devours all the ancient façades of Paris.
The shoulders lay upon a low mound, and the head was turned back at an angle
otherwise impossible, the expanded eyes staring blankly backward in a direction opposite to that of the feet.
Her ladyship appeared again round the angle
of the wall.
He reefed hastily to the uttermost, and at the same time depressed the angle
of his flight to meet that upward surge.
These rhombs have certain angles
, and the three which form the pyramidal base of a single cell on one side of the comb, enter into the composition of the bases of three adjoining cells on the opposite side.
The town of Concepcion was built in the usual Spanish fashion, with all the streets running at right angles
to each other; one set ranging S.
, Saxons, and Jutes occupied territories in the region which includes parts of the present Holland, of Germany about the mouth of the Elbe, and of Denmark.
Like most old fashioned pulpits, it was a very lofty one, and since a regular stairs to such a height would, by its long angle
with the floor, seriously contract the already small area of the chapel, the architect, it seemed, had acted upon the hint of Father Mapple, and finished the pulpit without a stairs, substituting a perpendicular side ladder, like those used in mounting a ship from a boat at sea.
Far back on the side of the head, and low down, near the angle
of either whale's jaw, if you narrowly search, you will at last see a lashless eye, which you would fancy to be a young colt's eye; so out of all proportion is it to the magnitude of the head.
