Examples of usage:

  1.

"The Practice and Science Of Drawing" by Harold Speed
  2.

"The Art of English Poetry (1708)" by Edward Bysshe
  3. If religion can be regarded as archaic science enriched with the belief in supernatural control, the myth can be regarded as effete religion which has been superseded by the growth of a loftier ethical purpose. "The Evolution of the Dragon" by G. Elliot Smith
