ROME: Art and Architecture
Konemann , 2007. First Edition, Softcover. Very Good Condition. 9783833135897 Moderate creasing to lower edge of covers, shallow dent on rear; pages are clean bright and unmarked. This heavy, lavishly illustrated book traces the development of Roman art and architecture from the time of the Republic to the twentieth century. You might expect, in a book which tries to condense two and a half thousand years of artistic creativity into a single volume, that detail would be sacrificed. But this is not the case; Rome: Art and Architecture manages to be comprehensive, concise as well as detailed. A particular credit should go to the photographer(s), for many of the images are, in themselves, works of art. (Reader review) 680 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Frances Lincoln , 2015. First Edition, Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. 9780711236080 Rubbing to lower edges of boards, pages are clean and bright; unclipped jacket creased along upper edge, small mark on front panel. "Here’s a departure: a travel anthology organised not by region, mode of transport or manner of writing but by the date when the entry was written. That makes for some delightfully odd encounters: under November 30, for example, there’s Dickens on a sea passage in the 1860s followed by the rock singer Ian Hunter (of Mott the Hoople) on New York in the 1970s. The collection ranges from the 16th century to the present, concentrating on the period from 1750 to 1950, the classic era of European exploration and diary-writing. It reminds us, among other things, that “travellers” have been complaining about “tourists” for a very long time." (Daily Telegraph) 528 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
