Catherine Millet ; Paul Holberton ; translation : Trista Selous Dali and Me Scheidegger & Spiess, 2008. 1. Hardcover, 184 pages, ENG, 225 x 165 x 20 mm, NEW, dustjacket, illustrated in b/w. ISBN: 9783858817112 Salvador Dalí's surrealist masterworks are admired worldwide for their eccentric metaphors. Far lesser known, though, are his fascinating writings, where he occupies himself with verve and in bewilderingly unrefined style with the human body and sexuality. The French art critic and writer Catherine Millet has studied Dalí's artistic oeuvre and his writings for years. Her essay is the expression of a very personal reading of his self-reflecting texts. This pivotal book explains Dalí's influence on his contemporary artist colleagues and reveals the narcissism, the constraints and the visual inventiveness of the most famous - and the most notorious - of the surrealists. The text is completed by rarely published photographs and paintings by Dalí and others that illustrate Millet's ideas.

David King ; H. Daiber ; D. Pingree World-maps for Finding the Direction and Distance to Mecca : Innovation and Tradition in Islamic Science Brill, 1999. 1. Hardcover, 638 pages, ENG, 295 x 230 x 40 mm, book is in very good condition !, dustjacket is included but in bad shape, however the book is better without it, illustrated in colour / b/w . ISBN: 9789004113671 Two remarkable Iranian world-maps were discovered in 1989 and 1995. Both are made of brass and date from 17th-century Iran. Mecca is at the centre and a highly sophisticated longitude and latitude grid enables the user to determine the direction and distance to Mecca for anywhere in the world between Andalusia and China. Prior to the discovery of these maps it was thought that such cartographic grids were conceived in Europe ca. 1910. This richly-illustrated book presents an overview of the ways in which Muslims over the centuries have determined the sacred direction towards Mecca (qibla) and then describes the two world-maps in detail. The author shows that the geographical data derives from a 15th-century Central Asian source and that the mathematics underlying the grid was developed in 9th-century Baghdad.

Dirk Velghe PARIS SOULS : Unexpected Histories from the City of Light Hannibal Books, 2023. 1. PB+, 240 x 160 mm, 560 pages, ENG edition, illustrated, . ISBN: 9789464666403 In this book, reality always outdoes fiction and truth always outdoes myth. Get ready for a personal encounter with police inspectors and filles à la cuisse légère, Impressionists and art thieves, swindlers and bankers, poisoners and surgeons, collaborators and members of the resistance, Cubists and anarchists, painters' models and curators, terrorists and duellists, Huguenots and Catholics, criminals and executioners. In intriguing, often forgotten histories such as 'The Chanel versus Wertheimer', 'Lenin's Yellow Jersey' and 'Selling the Eiffel Tower', hundreds of Parisian souls are brought back to life behind the façades, in the passages, on the squares and along the avenues and boulevards of the City of Light In Paris Souls, the reader samples the idiosyncratic harvest of someone who, after many seasons in his favourite city, still takes delight in its fruits. Author Dirk Velghe recounts facts and stories about the unusual people and events that have coloured Paris, sometimes with paint, sometimes with blood. Histories the way only a true Parisian can tell them. Light-hearted but always drawing on thorough research, Velghe gives a completely new twist to the history of Paris. His no-nonsense prose and narrative flair make for compelling reading.
Edward Norgate ; Jeffrey M. Muller ; Jim Murrell Miniatura or the Art of Limning Yale University Press 1997, 1997. Hardcover, 312 pages, English, 240 x 165 mm, cover has some traces of being used before, book however is in very fine condition, and not unimportant, with a signature and greeting from the author, !!. ISBN: 9780300069136 Edward Norgate, aristocratic friend of Charles I and the Earl of Arundel, made his mark in seventeenth-century England as musician, herald, and courtier. He also wrote Miniatura, a widely circulated study of miniature painting in his era that serves today as both a guide to materials and techniques and a record of the artistic knowledge and taste of Charles' court. This new edition of Norgate's treatise, the first since 1919, introduces and fully annotates the text from technical and art historical perspectives, firmly establishing the prime importance of Norgate's work. The book provides a detailed account of Norgate's life and many interests, his readership, and his technique. The editors-a noted scholar of seventeenth-century art and an authority on the techniques and materials of miniature painting-closely examine Norgate's text and compare it with other contemporary treatises, placing his techniques in the context of the period. The treatise itself, first written in 1627-28 and then substantially revised in 1648, sets forth in great detail the methods of English miniaturists, from the composition and preparation of pigments and brushes to lighting in the studio. Norgate acknowledges indebtedness to Hilliard, comments on other artists' styles and techniques, and reveals through his own views the English aristocracy's interest in and assimilation of European artistic culture.

Jeroen De Keyser, Noreen Humble, Keith Sidwell Henri Estienne : On Books LYSA Publishers, 2022. 1. Hardcover, 488 pages, English & Latin, NEW, 240 x 170 mm, rounded spine, sewn, dust jacket, reading ribbon. ISBN: 9789464447675 Henri II Estienne (1531-98) was the most outstanding member of his family?s long-lived publishing dynasty. He continued the work of his father, Robert, by publishing many unedited Greek texts and completing the Thesaurus linguae Graecae (1572), an expensive venture from which his business never fully recovered. His versatility? as publisher, scholar, corrector, lexicographer and poet ? can be seen in the paratextual material in his many editions, and in his own original works. This anthology presents a sample from Henri Estienne?s writings across his career and from different genres. These range from letters, to poetry, to essays, to his Encomium of the Frankfurt Fair. They reveal him as a remarkable scholar with an astonishing grasp of Latin and Greek literature, while highlighting also his problems both as a publisher and as a scholar. Estienne?s elaborate essays on the ancient Greek historians Xenophon and Herodotus use ancient examples to support contemporary arguments. His verses preserve a strong sense of the life of a scholar turned businessman, both at work and at play. In remarkably fluid Latin, Estienne reveals in these writings his aspiration to be worthy of his father?s legacy, his affection for family and friends, his humour, and his gripes with other scholars and publishers.
Jerry Brotton The Sale of the Late King's Goods : Charles I and his Art Collection Pan Macmillan, 2006. 1. Bound cover, 436 pages, ENG, 240 x 160 mm, in very good condition, with illustrations in colours. ISBN: 9781405041522 So wonderful and glorious a collection, that the like will never again be met with.' This is how one awed and wistful observer described King Charles' artworks. As an acquirer of paintings by Europe's great masters and patron of Rubens and Van Dyck, Charles's extravagance in amassing his collection only exacerbated the parliamentary disapproval that led to civil war and the King's own execution. After his death, one of the Commonwealth's first decrees was to sell off his treasures to raise money for the new regime. After the Restoration, one of Charles II's first resolutions was to get the collection back.

Throughout, Berger maintains the essential connection between politics, art and the wider study of culture. A beautifully illustrated walk through many centuries of visual culture from one of the contemporary world's most incisive critical voices.
Jonathan Brown Images and Ideas in Seventeenth-Century Spanish Painting : Princeton Essays in the Arts, 6 Princeton Univ Press, 1978. 1. Hardcover, 169 pages, ENG, 240 x 165 mm, dustjacket, black linen with goldcoloured imprint, with 55 b/w images, in good condition. ISBN: 9780691039411 Art historians have often minimized the variety and complexity of seventeenth-century Spanish painting by concentrating on individual artists and their works and by stressing discovery of new information rather than interpretation. As a consequence, the painter emerges in isolation from the forces that shaped his work. Jonathan Brown offers another approach to the subject by relating important Spanish Baroque paintings and painters to their cultural milieu.

Marius de Zayas, Francis M. Naumann How, When, and Why Modern Art Came to New York The MIT Press, 1996. 1. Hardcover, 260 pages, ENG, 235 x 190 mm, dustjacket, as good as new !, black linen with red imprint, illustrated in b/w. ISBN: 9780262041539 Marius de Zayas (1880-1961), a Mexican artist and writer whose caricatures of New York's theatre, dance and social elite brought him to the attention of Alfred Stieglitz and his circle at "291", was among the most effective propagandists of modern art during the early years of the 20th century. His writings were the first to provide the American public with an intellectual basis upon which to understand and eventually appreciate the newest artistic developments. "How, When and Why Modern Art Came to New York", originally written in the late 1940s, is a chronicle assembled from de Zaya's personal archive of photographs and from newspaper reviews of the exhibitions he discusses, beginning with those held at the Stieglitz gallery and including important shows mounted in his own galleries: The Modern Gallery (1915-1918) and The de Zayas Gallery (1919-1921).;An appendix added by the editor provides detailed information on the various exhibitions. Additional appendixes contain transcriptions of the de Zayas and Stieglitz correspondence, as well as an account of de Zayas's unique relationship with Picasso, a Spaniard with whom he felt a special kinship and whose work he would be among the first in America to promote and defend.;Among the press reviews included here are many important documents coming to light for the first time since their original publication. Moreover, the photographs de Zayas selected specify which works were shown in the exhibitions he discusses (as opposed to vague titles in catalogue listings), and many of the photographs illustrate works that have been lost or destroyed since they were first shown.
