Printworld (P) Ltd., 2010, University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: . Softcover. Brand new book. The first European artist-naturalists to tour North America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were awed not only by the continent's varying landforms but also by the animals they encountered: vast herds of buffalo, majestic horned stags, a bewildering variety of birds. The earliest sketches depicting these fauna began the remarkable tradition of wildlife in American art, a tradition that evolved along with the United States as a nation and still thrives today. For more than two decades, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, has honored and sustained this tradition by assembling the most comprehensive collection of paintings and sculptures portraying North American wildlife in the world. Wildlife in American Art presents for the first time a generous sampling of the museum's holdings, charts the history of this enduring theme in American art, and explores the evolving relationship between Americans and the natural resources of this continent. More than a museum catalogue, this volume offers descriptions of individual artists in the collection as well as in-depth, informative essays about what the natural environment has meant to Americans over timeÑuntamed wilderness, sublime creation, endless resource, threatened habitat. Author and art historian Adam Duncan Harris also describes how these meanings have played out in painting and sculpture over the past two centuries. More than 125 full-color illustrations highlight the entire range of the museum's collection, from the western wilds of George Catlin to the desert drama of Georgia O'Keeffe. Also included are elegant birdstones carved by ancient Americans, exquisite avian artwork by John James Audubon, epic western scenes by Albert Bierstadt, idealistic depictions of unspoiled wilderness by Carl Rungius, and modern takes on the subject by Andy Warhol, Paul Manship, and Robert Kuhn. By bringing together and comparing works of unmatched beauty and majesty, this volume gives to a salient theme in American art the attention it has long deserved. Adam Duncan Harris is Curator of Art at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming., University of Oklahoma Press, Norman:, Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2013. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. Edinburgh and Glasgow enjoy a famously scratchy relationship. Resembling other intercity rivalries throughout the world, from Madrid and Barcelona, to Moscow and St. Petersburg, to Beijing and Shanghai, Scotland's sparring metropolises just happen to be much smaller and closer togetherÑlike twin stars orbiting a common axis. Yet their size belies their world-historical importance as cultural and commercial capitals of the British Empire, and the mere forty miles between their city centers does not diminish their stubbornly individual nature. Robert Crawford dares to bring both cities to life between the covers of one book. His story of the fluctuating fortunes of each city is animated by the one-upping that has been entrenched since the eighteenth century, when Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and took on its proud wistfulness, while Glasgow came into its industrial promise and defiance. Using landmarks and individuals as gateways to their character and past, this tale of two cities mixes novelty and familiarity just as Scotland's capital and its largest city do. Crawford gives us Adam Smith and Walter Scott, the Scottish Enlightenment and the School of Art, but also tiny apartments, a poetry library, Spanish Civil War volunteers, and the nineteenth-century entrepreneur Maria Theresa Short. We see Glasgow's best-known street through the eyes of a Victorian child, and Edinburgh University as it appeared to Charles Darwin. Crawford's lively account, drawing on a wealth of historical and literary sources, affirms what people from Glasgow and Edinburgh have long doubtedÑthat it is possible to love both cities at the same time. 368 pages, 6-1/8 x 9-1/4 inches, 59 halftones, 3 maps. Poet and critic Robert Crawford is Professor of Modern Scottish Literature at the University of St. Andrews. "On Glasgow and Edinburgh is a thoroughly enjoyable book, all the more so for provoking arguments (the Glaswegian's favorite hobby). Readers familiar with the two cities will enjoy the recitation of familiar history and the frequent occurrence of unfamiliar fact and anecdote. Those who have not (yet) gazed from Castle Street in the New Town to Castle Rock, the high glory of the Old, will read about it and make plans to visit. After Edinburgh, they should fly around the world and arrive at Glasgow and discover Scotland all over again."ÑJames Campbell, The Wall Street Journal "The book offers a portrait, not a narrative history, and is intended for visitors as well as for natives and other Scots, many of whom will find, as I did, that they don't know either city as well as they supposedÉ On Glasgow and Edinburgh is an enjoyable book, its learning leavened by the author's wit and sense of the absurd."ÑAllan Massie, The Times Literary Supplement "CrawfordÉhas in On Glasgow and Edinburgh yoked together the two warring siblings of urban Scotland, seeking to calm their feud by writing separately, perceptively and in great detail about eachÉ Crawford's is a rich piece of workÑa kind of literary guidebook, which demands that you go to one or both of these cities and see for yourself."ÑJohn Lloyd, Financial Times "Affectionate, sharply observed and sharply writtenÉ On Glasgow and EdinburghÉis a highbrow guidebook, as useful to carry on a visit as it is pleasurable to read far away."ÑBrian Morton, The Independent "This new bookÑwritten 'for both with love'Ñis about the two cities the poet appears to care about mostÉ Alas, he is fair. His personification of these cities is so thorough, and so in keeping with his overall aesthetic as a poet who tenders contradiction, that you cannotÑdespite my evil attemptsÑuse the book as a primer on how to stoke up the ancient and holy rivalriesÉ Edinburgh/Glasgow is a culture clash between two cities forty miles apart, and Crawford's book seeks to do it honor. He calls it 'a treasured rivalry,' and he isn't wrong: each city would be slightly less without the other's countervailing charmÉ You could take a walk in each city with the book in your hand and see where ideas have shaped the stone. It's a tale of two cities as represented by their storytellers, their makars, their minstrels and their celebrants."ÑAndrew O'Hagan, London Review of Books "Excellent."ÑJohn McDermott, Financial Times "Robert Crawford is that rarest breed of Scotsman: one who professes to love Edinburgh and Glasgow equallyÉ He has produced a walking guide to Scotland's greatest cities that will delight any literary-minded tourist. Many natives will learn much from this agreeable book too."ÑAlex Massie, New Statesman "A fascinating book filled with pithy observations and unexpected anecdotes. Crawford comes across like an erudite, beady-eyed fl‰neur, alive to the relationship between topography and history, combining spirited insight with irreverent characterizationsÉ Melding personal reminiscence with inspired historical research he has a keen eye for the ironies and contrasts of city life. As a result there is enough surprising information here to delight even those who know the territory wellÉ Crawford assembles a compelling case for the idea that the two cities get more from their colorful rivalry than they would from a bland collaborationÉ This richly illustrated, intelligent and compelling work of history and reflection offers heartfelt tribute to both."ÑDavid Stenhouse, Scotland on Sunday "Crawford's aim is not to create a fast-paced travel guide to each city. Instead, he takes the reader in hand, moves to the center of town, selects 24 sites of interest in each city, and sets off on a walking tour. By journey's end, the reader is utterlyÑand equallyÑbeguiled by Edinburgh and GlasgowÉ Crawford is a Scottish Walt Whitman, singing of the cities he loves."ÑJo Gibson, The Cleveland Plain Dealer "As with all good ideas, one wonders why no-one has ever written a book about Glasgow and Edinburgh beforeÉ Crawford attempts, with admirable evenhandedness, to explain their parallel storiesÉ It is of course remarkable that two cities just 50 or so miles apart are so different in character and sensibility. Travel from one to the other and you could be in another countryÉ Far from seeing the Glasgow-Edinburgh rivalry as debilitating, Crawford regards it positively."ÑAlan Taylor, The Glasgow Herald "Crawford impartially analyses the character, past and present of Scotland's two combatants, not in a dry academic treatise, but a lively and interesting urban exploration which I found captivatingÉ Architecture, streets, parks, gardens, citizens of note, industry, government, history, the arts, vice; all these, and more, are covered here in fascinating, minutely researched detailÉ Eminently readable, enlightening and entertaining, On Glasgow and Edinburgh is truly a tale of two modern cities. This might be the only book you'll ever need to read if you want to learn what makes these two places tick; elements in common and aspects which set them apart."ÑIan Neilson, The Scots Magazine "This is an unfailingly intelligent and sympathetic book."ÑStuart Kelly, The Scotsman "From the eminent poet and professor of literature comes a thoughtful and provocative account of the rivalry that has dogged these two cities. It's [Crawford's] belief that this ongoing duel has played a significant part in shaping Scotland, but also that it ought now to be resolved."ÑRosemary Goring, The Sunday Herald "This is a fascinating book, if in some ways a peculiar one, part coffee table, part high table, elegant and erudite but wearing its learning lightlyÉ Beautifully illustratedÑthe images of the Falkirk Wheel are stunningÑand written in an effortlessly engaging style, On Glasgow and Edinburgh is a bold and breezy book."ÑWilly Maley, Times Higher Education "A delightfully engaging mix of history, architectural reference, and literary allusion. A most enjoyable read, which will have wide appeal well beyond aficionados of these two great cities."ÑT.M. Devine, author of The Scottish Nation: A Modern History "A wonderful bookÑrichly informative, critically astute, and lucidly and vividly written."ÑIan Duncan, author of Scott's Shadow: The Novel in Romantic Edinburgh "This book is a beautiful idea lovingly accomplished. It is high time that the old and ugly rivalry between Glasgow and Edinburgh ended, and this book shows us how to do it. Like an inspirational couples counsellor, Robert Crawford suggests that bigamy is the answer: we should learn to love both of these great cities with equal passion. He does, and so do I. You should try it, too."ÑRichard Holloway, author of Leaving Alexandria: A Memoir of Faith and Doubt "People familiar with either place will find much to divert them in these pages, and those who have never visited Scotland's great cities will feel that they have been there after reading Crawford's book."ÑFiona Stafford, author of Local Attachments, Belknap Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts and London England: 2013, University of Chicago Press, April 2016. Hardcover. New. Though at first glance the natural world may appear overwhelming in its diversity and complexity, there are regularities running through it, from the hexagons of a honeycomb to the spirals of a seashell and the branching veins of a leaf. Revealing the order at the foundation of the seemingly chaotic natural world, ' Patterns in Nature 'explores not only the math and science but also the beauty and artistry behind nature s awe-inspiring designs. <BR> Unlike the patterns we create in technology, architecture, and art, natural patterns are formed spontaneously from the forces that act in the physical world. Very often the same types of pattern and form spirals, stripes, branches, and fractals, say recur in places that seem to have nothing in common, as when the markings of a zebra mimic the ripples in windblown sand. That s because, as 'Patterns in Nature 'shows, at the most basic level these patterns can often be described using the same mathematical and physical principles: there is a surprising underlying unity in the kaleidoscope of the natural world. Richly illustrated with 250 color photographs and anchored by accessible and insightful chapters by esteemed science writer Philip Ball, 'Patterns in Nature' reveals the organization at work in vast and ancient forests, powerful rivers, massing clouds, and coastlines carved out by the sea. <BR> By exploring similarities such as those between a snail shell and the swirling stars of a galaxy, or the branches of a tree and those of a river network, this spectacular visual tour conveys the wonder, beauty, and richness of natural pattern formation.' While the natural world is often described as organic, it is in fact structured to the very molecule, replete with patterned order that can be decoded with basic mathematical algorithms and principles. In a nautilus shell one can see logarithmic spirals, and the Golden Ratio can be seen in the seed head of the sunflower plant. These patterns and shapes have inspired artists, writers, designers, and musicians for thousands of years. 'Patterns in Nature: Why the Natural World Looks the Way It Does' illuminates the amazing diversity of pattern in the natural world and takes readers on a visual tour of some of the world s most incredible natural wonders. Featuring awe-inspiring galleries of nature s most ingenious designs, 'Patterns in Nature' is a synergy of art and science that will fascinate artists, nature lovers, and mathematicians alike.', University of Chicago Press, Gale ECCO, Print Editions, 2010-06-10.

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.The eighteenth-century fascination with Greek and Roman antiquity followed the systematic excavation of the ruins at Pompeii and Herculaneum in southern Italy; and after 1750 a neoclassical style dominated all artistic fields. The titles here trace developments in mostly English-language works on painting, sculpture, architecture, music, theater, and other disciplines. Instructional works on musical instruments, catalogs of art objects, comic operas, and more are also included. ++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.
