This is Old England as seen in hundreds of beautifully reproduced engravings. Here are the splendours of yesteryear. A treasure trove of the past for browsers and collectors alike. The encyclopedic text of this monumental work provides a fact-filled panorama of delight for the casual reader and in-depth information for both the historian and artist. The complete background data necessary to fully understand and appreciate each engraving is provided as well as the historical and artistic forces that produced such genius. The text is evocative of the creative impulses and historical imperatives that resulted in this wealth of architecture and design. Each engraving can be seen in its necessary context to fully comprehend the time in which they were created and the significance to that time. Among the many reproductions are the splendours and intricacies of the carvings of Wolsey's Hall and Hampton Court that remain unrivaled throughout the world. The tapestries belonged to Henry VIII and were reputed to be done by a student of the incomparable Raphael. The monuments to both Queen Elizabeth and her nemesis, Mary, Queen of Scots, are shown revealing the history and magnificence of a past age of architecture. The magnificence of St. George's Hall, Windsor, with its dark Gothic influences and the colossal dimensions of Whitehall Chapel are shown in all their vivid detail. This handsome book captures the richness and the multi-faceted textures of another era - another time. It is history at its best, capturing for the reader that continuum between past and present that forms the essence of the human spirit. N° de réf. du libraire 017267

Description de la librairie : The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
