D Einsiedeln la Salette au fil des si cles
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.
The Transfiguration of the Commonplace
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.

The Mirror of Simple Souls
This translation from the French original includes an introductory interpretive essay by Edmund Colledge, O.S.A., Judith Grant, and J. C. Marler, and a foreword by Kent Emery, Jr. The translators of this Modern English version rely primarily on the original French manuscript, yet also take medieval translations into account. As a result, this edition offers a reading of The Mirror of Simple Souls that solves a number of difficulties found in the French. The valuable introduction by the translators narrates the archival history of the book, for which Margaret Porette was burned alive in Paris in 1310.
Contemplative Man s Recreation
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, ...

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.
