RICKE, HELMUT,
Glass Art. Reflections of the Centuries
. The Glasmuseum Hentrich in Düsseldorf's Museum Kunst Palast, one of the world's most wide-ranging glass collections, is the basis for this generously illustrated exploration of glass art from prehistory to the present, written by the collection's longtime director, Helmut Ricke. Glass was the first man-made material, and nearly every civilization made use of its flexibility, resilience, and variety. Brimming with colorful images from the collection as well as maps and drawings, this book covers all periods of glassmaking from pre-Roman, Roman, Islamic, Mediaeval, Renaissance and Baroque times, the nineteenth century and up to the 1990s. It includes stunning examples of enameled and cut glass, as well as elaborate works from Persia, India and China, all of which influenced the Art Nouveau period, widely considered the heyday of decorative glass. A detailed appendix provides background information on the mechanics of glass, including smelting, refining, and manufacturing. A valuable resource for anyone interested in this ancient medium, this magnificent catalog highlights a world-famous collection of glass art. 2002, 384 pages, 363 colour illustrations, 89 b/w illustrations, Hardcover in dust jacket, still in shrink wrapper. size: 270 x 210 mm. (ISBN: 978379132793) .

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM,
The Plays
0. 1825. in Nine Volumes. EIGHT volumes only [of nine], London, William Pickering, Chancery Lane, 1825; approx. 3.1 ins x 1.7 ins; each volume c. 300 pp. with 33 copper-engraved plates, and a few wood-engraved circular vignettes; contemporary maroon morocco, spines panelled in gilt with raised bands, lettered in gilt with the titles of the plays within one of the panels. triple gilt rule to boards, all edges gilt; several plates slightly or marginally embrowned, a few more than the others, text clean; Volume I lacks general title (discarded by the binder); Volume III lacks the final leaf (the last two pages of "A Winter's Tale"), title-page of Vol.IX long ago mended with neat stitching; bindings a little rubbed at extremities, a little darkened, bottom corner of rear board of Volume III scratched; generally very attractive in its miniature morocco binding, though a little used, and internally clean, but missing Volume II as well as the one leaf of Volume III. Spielman 456. "The illustrated edition of the Pickering Shakespeare is rare in itself as only a small number of the sets was issued with the engraved frontispieces". He quotes Sheringham, writing in "The Connoisseur" [Nov. 1902]: "The plates of the Shakespeare in particular, 38 in number, were all lost, and the later copies of course are without them." The plates were engraved after Thomas Stothard - except for that of Puck, which is after Sir Joshua Reynolds' already celebrated painting.Since there are usually four plates in each of our volumes, we guess that our Volume IX, with only three plates, may be short of one plate.

TAYLOR, TOM, (ED.),
Life of Benjamin Robert Haydon,
0. 1853. Historical Painter, from his Autobiography and Journals. Second Edition. Three volumes, London, 1853; xvi, 419, viii, 407, viii, 419 pp. AN EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED COPY with scores of plates from Victorian and earlier sources, mostly portraits; bound by Riviere & Son in early 20th century brown half morocco over cloth boards, spines gilt in compartments with raised bands,exremities a little rubbed; plates to Volumes I and II damp-stained, mostly in the margins (see below), a few light marginal pencil marks. Today Haydon is better remembered for his remarkable diary and tragic end than for the historical painting he tried desperately to promulgate. His writings are replete with anecdotes, of contemporaries, artistic and others, records of encounters and friendships, and trenchant, if controversial, criticisms and judgements (a large number of the people referred to or portrayed are illustrated through the plates that have been added by the binder). Many of the plates added to the first two volumes damp-stained but mostly in the margins: many of the plates were window-mounted, and it is then ususally only the mounts that display marks; the text in these volumes is not stained, though it is very slightly rippled at the outer edge. Volume III is unaffected by stains. The plates comprising the extra illustrations are the usual mixture for the time of binding of mostly steel-engraved, or copper-engraved, portraits and views, usually relating to the text opposite which they are bound in, some common, some scarce. They would be hard to assemble nowadays.

THELIN, NILS B.,
On the Nature of Time a Biopragmatic Perspective on Language, Thought, and Reality
. ( Acta Universitatis Upsaliennsis - Studia Slavica Upsaliensia volume 48. ) Uppsala, 2014, 480pp. illustrated hardback.
¶ This book is a synthesis of more than three decades of research into the concept of time and its semiotic nature. If traditional philosophy - and philosophy of time should be no exception - in the shadow of advancing biology can be said to have reached an impasse, one important reason for this, in harmony with Wittgenstein's vision, appears to have been its lack of appropriate tools for explicating language. The present theory of time proceeds, accordingly, from the exploration of temporal expressions in language as an evolutionary fact. It derives in a hypothetical, coherent feedback process of hierarchically or dered distinctions the semantics of time from its biologically dictated perceptual and cognitive-pragmatic origins. The corresponding abductive-regulative model is anchored in the assumption of biological rhythmization as the very foundation of perception and mental/physical action. Under- stood to originate in space and spatial perspective, time reveals itself as an instrument for temporal perspective on motion (events and situations) in a process of analysis, i.e. discontinuation of chaos made divisible and continuous by the rhythmical screen. Whereas tradition- al philosophy of time paid attention almost exclusively to the temporal category of tense , the biopragmatic model sees strong evidence in the perspectival nature of time for ascribing the decisive, and probably universal, role in temporal analysis to the linguistic category of aspect . Aspect may, according to the present findings, be assumed to partake already of change- of-state and cause-effect analysis without which man's adaptation to new situations - and precondition for survival - would be inconceivable. The proposed model of space/time cogni-tion, inspired by Hegelian dialectics, Heidegger-Gadamer's hermeneutic circle and Peircean logic, makes Kantian a priori superfluous and liberates time from its enigmatic appearance. For the first time in temporal studies it thus appears possible to derive hypothetically linguistic expressions of time all the way from pre-temporal, homogeneous continuity effected by biological rhythmization, via pre-temporal metonymic (Gestalt), chunk-wise partitioning - as a general precondition for the perception and, based on primary metaphorization, the cognition of things, space and motion - to temporal analysis/discontinuation proper, primarily by aspectual perspective, and the subsequent synthesized, heterogeneous continuity of temporally ordered events. The conception of time, so disastrous for modern temporal logic, i.e. as moving object assigned extension, divisible continuity ( ? linearity') and direction, can be shown to have emerged as a result of secondary metaphorization.

THOMSON, JAMES
The Seasons
. W. Suttaby, Stationers Court. 1808. Frontis & Illustrated title page. On the front board the year 1807 is printed. Includes, The Life of Thomson. XIV, [3], 18-168 pages. Interior remains tight and complete. No backstrip. size: 80 x 149 mm. in the original brown paper covered printed boards (corners bumped )
¶ James Thomson (11 September 1700 - 27 August 1748) was a Scottish poet and playwright, known for his masterpiece The Seasons and the lyrics of Rule, Britannia!. He wrote Spring in 1728 and finally Autumn in 1730, when the set of four was published together as The Seasons. During this period he also wrote other poems, such as to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton, and his first play, The Tragedy of Sophonisba (1729). The latter is best known today for its mention in Samuel Johnson's Lives of the English Poets, where Johnson records that one 'feeble' line of the poem - "O, Sophonisba, Sophonisba, O!" was parodied by the wags of the theatre as, "O, Jemmy Thomson, Jemmy Thomson, O!".

The Musterbuch dates from the 1st half of the 13th century,
¶ Generations of medieval artists patterned their great works on cartoons and sketches compiled in so-called Model Books. The Model Book of Rein, named after the Cistercian abbey at Rein near Graz in Styria where it was made, is probably the finest of all. The first medieval Model Book this is the work of an anonymous artist who, on 13 pages, carefully illustrated scenes of everyday life, created animal depictions, a series of initial alphabets, as well as patterns for floor tiles and glass windows. The codex was produced in the 13th century and the copy in Rein thus constitutes the oldest surviving Model Book of this size in medieval art. The Model Book commences with 12 scenes taken from medieval daily life. The precisely executed genre pictures represent typical farm duties, different arts and crafts, as well as hunting and fishing scenes and activities of monastic life.These pictures are followed by three different alphabets, ranging from a simple majuscule alphabet to a lavishly illustrated initial alphabet including animals skilfully hidden in the expressive interlace. The books continues with 48 real and fabulous creatures, plants, and stones. Especially the birds deserve particular mention due to their complicated posture and movements and it is assumed that they could have been destined for use in initials. The same applies to the sketches showing multi-lobed, scroll-like leaves enclosing ensembles of flowers and fruit. The Model Book ends with sumptuous ornaments designed for use in floor tiles and glass windows with interlace modelled in the style of Greek mosaics. ( CODICES SELECTI, Vol. LXIV).

VEHMEYER, H.M.,
Clocks: Their Origin and Development 1320-1880. 2 Volumes.
. Wilsele, Belgium, 1st. edition, 2004, 1032 pages and about 950 colour illustrations. bibliography, index; .small-folio sized, immaculate new set in box and still in shrink wraps.( 25 x 33.1 cm )
¶ A completely rewritten and vastly expanded version of an earlier publication in Dutch (Vehmeyer, Antieke Uurwerken - Een familienverzameling, 1994, 624 pages ) this work is therefore vastly more accessible to most collectors. It is basically a detailed history of the mechanical clock in Europe, illustrated primarily with examples from the extraordinary collection of the author's family. The 1994 edition showed 233 clocks in detail; the 2004 edition has grown to 330 clocks so shown. Therefore, the book is also a massive collection catalogue. Each clock in the family collection is catalogued on two (or more) large (13x10 inches) pages, with about half a page of text describing maker, dial, movement and case, half a page of colour photos of details, and a large, full page colour picture of the clock facing the initial page. The clocks are arranged by country (52 from Germany, 109 from the Netherlands, 94 from England, 83 from France. ). Within each country, they are in chronological order. Part I comprises a comprehensive introduction to the origins of clockmaking, while Part II presents a comparative horological history of the leading European clockmaking countries: Germany, England, France, Italy and last but not least, the Netherlands. The book has a lot more to offer than just historical and technical facts about clocks. On the basis of the Vehemeyer family collection of more than 350 clocks, which are illustrated at the end of each relevant chapter, it gives insight into the relative importance of each country and the mutual influence these countries exerted on each other. Owing to its large number of beautifully produced photographs of both the exterior and very often also the interior of the various artefacts, as well as the explanatory accompanying texts, which follow a set pattern, this book will prove to be of interest to both laymen and specialist alike. 9053494316 / ISBN-13: 978-9053494318.
