Avec l'Alsace, les Vosges et la Savoie, le Comté de Bourgogne et ses gens ont été attirés depuis longtemps par la Vierge Noire d'Einsiedeln et par d'autres sanctuaires petits ou grands, proche ou lointains. Aussi avons-nous tenu à consacrer un livre de mémoire à une ardeur religieuse que notre génération est l'une des dernières à avoir connue. Nous avons limitée notre synthèse, à la Franche-Comté et à ses régions voisines.

Mr. Danto argues that recent developments in the artworld, in particular the production of works of art that cannot be told from ordinary things, make urgent the need for a new theory of art and make plain the factors such a theory can and cannot involve. In the course of constructing such a theory, he seeks to demonstrate the relationship between philosophy and art, as well as the connections that hold between art and social institutions and art history. The book distinguishes what belongs to artistic theory from what has traditionally been confused with it, namely aesthetic theory and offers as well a systematic account of metaphor, expression, and style, together with an original account of artistic representation. A wealth of examples, drawn especially from recent and contemporary art, illuminate the argument.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1824 edition. Excerpt: ... INTRODUCTORY ESSAY. If there were a single circumstance by which the fame of those "honourable men," the effigies of whom now face the reader, could possibly be enhanced, it was that of having for their biographer one, who, with the soundest judgment, possessed a sweetness of disposition ever inclining to the bright side of things; --a veracity not to be questioned, and a felicity of expression peculiarly his own: thus gifted, like the skilful artist, at once both flattering and faithful, he brought to the task of delineation, that delicacy due to family feeling, combined with the justice demanded by strict impartiality: the existence, and the application therefore, of such rare qualities, are equally the subject of exultation. On the other hand, that Izaak Walton should have been deemed by his contemporaries, the fittest of all persons to perform so important a task, were sufficient by reflection alone, to ensure to himself an imperishable name; the pictorial allusion, therefa fore, at the head of this Introductory Essay, will probably be deemed particularly appropriate: --it contains the Portraits of Dr. John Donne, Mr. George Herbert, Bishop Sanderson, Mr. Richard Hooker, and Sir Henry Wotton, whose lives, at different times, were written by Walton. The praise bestowed on the Life of Dr. Donne; ] by Dr. King, afterwards Bishop of Winchester, in a letter to Walton himself, is equally applicable to the rest: --" I am glad that the general demonstration of his worth was so fairly preserved, and represented to the world by your pen, in the history of his life; indeed so well, that, beside others, the best critic of our later time, Mr. John Hales of Eaton, affirmed to me he had not seen a life, written with more advantage to the subject, ...

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ... AN ESSAY TOWARDS A NEW THEORY OF VISION. 1. My design is to shew the manner wherein we perceive by Sight the Distance, Magnitude, and Situation of objects; also to consider the difference there is betwixt the ideas of Sight and Touch, and whether there be any idea common to both senses 1. 2. It is, I think, agreed by all that Distance of itself, and immediately, cannot be seen. For, distance being a line directed endwise to the eye, it projects only one point in the fund of the eye--which point remains invariably the same, whether the distance be longer or shorter 2. 1 The design of this Essay is, to compare the phenomena presented in Sight and in Touch, and to shew how we learn to see the primai-y or mathematical qualities of things. But we are led to consider the office of all the Five Senses in the formation of knowledge, in the course of this analysis of Sight, 'the most perfect and delightful' of them all. 2 Sect. 2-51 explain how we learn to 'see' Distance, or an interval between two visible points. (Of. Vindication, sect. 62-69.) Sect. 2 takes for granted, but without distinct proof, that distance is necessarily invisible. It must be noted that the 'distance' of which this can be assumed is space in its third dimension--depth or thickness; not space merely as plane superficial extension. In relation to the distance which Berkeley says cannot be seen--that which is in the line of sight, the percipient is at the end of a straight line, the interval between the two points of which must, it is argued, be invisible, because only one of them can be seen. When we see superficial distance, on the other hand, we are at the side, and not at the end of the line--at a point where it forms a larger or smaller angle with the eye; so that this...

Anyone who wishes to understand what has happened in India in the twentieth century - politically and culturally - must read Nirad C. Chaudhuri. Among her men of letters he is unique; for the fertility of his mind and the polymathic range of his interests, as well as for the lucidity of his prose and his sheer integrity. — Geoffrey Moorhouse (Chaudhuri) has spent a lifetime kicking against the myths and shibboleths held by the majority of his fellow countrymen: he has ridiculed the pacifism of Mahatma Gandhi...he has castigated Indian nationalism for being corrupt, self-seeking, and destructive... (he has) vented his spleen at the stupidity and philistinism of the British in India. His latest (book) is almost a thousand pages long. It testifies to (his) eloquence, wit, and intellectual brilliance that he can go on at such length without once becoming a bore. — Ian Buruma, The New York Review of Books

The nineteen papers in this collection come from a conference which explored current attitudes to restoration among a wide range of conservators (including paintings, frescoes, carpets and rugs, textiles, mosaics, vehicles, armour). Contributors were asked to address the various dilemmas facing conservators, curators and collectors in the display and interpretation of museum objects, and among the problems discussed are invisible restoration, the running of machinery and clocks, and the introduction of replica components.

Pigments, corrosion products, and minerals are usually considered separately, either as painting materials or as the deterioration products of metals, even though they are often the same compounds. This 190-year review of the literature on copper and its alloys integrates that information across a broad spectrum of interests that are all too frequently compartmentalized. The author discusses the various environmental conditions to which copper alloy objects may be exposed-including burial, outdoor, and indoor museum environments-and the methods used to conserve them. The book also includes information on ancient and historical technologies, the nature of patina as it pertains to copper and bronze, and the use of copper corrosion materials as pigments. Chapters are organized primarily by chemical corrosion products and include topics such as early technologies, copper chlorides and bronze disease, the chemistry and history of turquoise, Egyptian blue and other synthetic copper silicates, the organic salts of copper in bronze corrosion, and aspects of bronze patinas. A detailed survey of conservation treatments for bronze objects is also provided. Four appendixes cover copper and bronze chemistry, replication experiments for early pigment recipes, a list of copper minerals and corrosion products, and X-ray diffraction studies.

"[Woodruff's translation] is clear, fluent, and vigorous, well thought out, readable and forceful. The rhythms are right, ever-present but not too insistent or obvious. It can be spoken instead of read and so is viable as an acting version; and it keeps the lines of the plot well focused. The Introduction offers a good survey of critical approaches. The notes at the foot of the page are suitably brief and nonintrusive and give basic information for the non-specialist." --Charles Segal, Harvard University "This is a very useful edition, excellent for classroom purposes. The translation is clear and lively, and several students commented on how much they enjoyed it. The introduction provides an excellent overview of the issues in the play, as well as of earlier scholarship, making it a good resource for more advanced classes. The cover photo is an added bonus and provided the starting point for stimulating class discussion." --James B. Rives, York University
