Très rare documentation sur l¿histoire de la cartographie du continent américain, publiée à l¿occasion d¿une exposition célébrant le quatrième anniversaire de la découverte de l¿Amérique. Elle réunit cartes du domaine public et privé, sous la direction de Gabriel Marcel ; Conservateur adjoint, section cartes et plans, de la Bibliothèque Nationale. Les autres volumes de la série des recueils de voyages et documents pour servir à l¿histoire de la géographie sont tirés à 250 exemplaires, Extrait de la préface : « c¿est alors que j¿eus l¿idée d¿organiser avec les cartes que possède la section géographique de la bibliothèque nationale, avec celles ¿ dans les archives des ministères des Affaires Etrangères, de la Marine ou de la Guerre une exposition exclusivement américaine. Comme les documents voisins de la découverte auraient été trop peu nombreux, j¿imaginais de poursuivre, au moyen de cartes postérieures, l¿histoire de l¿exploration et des tentatives de colonisation en Amérique jusqu¿à la fin du XVIIIe siècle. Je résolus de compléter mon entreprise en m¿adressant aux Archives nationales et à certains particuliers que je savais posséder des pièces d¿un haut intérêt. ¿ J¿ai pu organiser, dans les locaux de la section de géographie à la Bibliothèque Nationale, l¿exposition américaine dont la presse des deux mondes a fait le plus bienveillant éloge et qui a vu défiler un si grand nombre de savants et de curieux. Mais cette exposition¿devait prendre fin¿ ce n¿était cependant pas assez d¿un catalogue, forcément un peu concis, pour conserver le souvenir de la réunion de tant de curieux documents dont quelques- uns constituent pour l¿Amérique les titres les plus précieux de ses archives historiques. A tout prix, il en fallait extraire le suc et la moelle. Il fallait choisir les plus importantes aux points de vue historique et géographique pour les reproduire. Nous avons du forcément réduire un certains nombre de nos reproductions, mais j¿aurai toujours soin d¿indiquer, dans le texte qui accompagnera chacune d¿elles, les dimensions de l¿original. Quant aux notices, elles seront aussi courtes que possible, mais elles renseigneront¿ sur l¿auteur de la carte et sur l¿intérêt particulier qu¿elle présente à la fois sous le rapport historique et géographique. » Gabriel- Alexandre Marcel, (1843-1909). « . Il connaissait à fond non seulement les richesses dont il était le conservateur, mais aussi toutes les questions de géographie pouvant intéresser les érudits, et, avec une complaisance qui égalait sa compétence, il se mit à leur disposition. La géographie américaine de l'époque des découvertes et de la colonisation avait attiré particulièrement son attention, et dans cette matière où règne encore tant d'obscurité, il avait des lumières dont profitèrent bien des savants, qui n'ont pas toujours reconnu comme il fallait le faire tout ce qu'ils lui devaient. Ses travaux sur ces questions dont les principaux sont ses Reproductions de cartes et de Globes relatifs à la découverte de l'Amérique (Paris, Leroux, 1894, gr. in-i) et son Choix de cartes et de mappemondes du XIVe et du XVe siècle (Paris, Leroux, 1896, gr. in-folio), tiennent une place marquante dans la bibliographie de l'histoire des découvertes géographiques. » H.

        Monography

      Ivan Me?trovi? je najpoznatiji i najslavniji hrvatski kipar te jedan od najve?ih suvremenih svjetskih umjetnika. Rodio se 15. kolovoza 1883. u Vrpolju kod ?upanje ali je djetinstvo proveo u Dalmaciji. Otac Mate oti?ao je u Slavoniju trbuhom za kruhom. Govore?i o Me?trovi?ima zanimljivo je spomenuti da korijeni Ivana Me?trovi?a se?u u susjednu Bosnu i Hercegovinu, to?nije Fojnicu. Prvi Me?trovi? koji se doselio iz u Dalmatinsku zagoru oko 1630. bio je izvjesni Ivan Me?trovi? zvani Aga. On se u Duvnu vjen?ao s k?erkom jedinicom iz imu?ne obitelji. Tom prilikom mladenkin otac uvjetovao je brak time da budu?i mu?, uz svoje, uzme i njihovo prezime - Gabrilovi?. Uz obrazlo?enje kako ne ?eli da se loza Gabrilovi?a zatre. Sve do ro?enja najpoznatijeg hrvatkog kipara Ivana Me?trovi?a prezime obitelji glasilo je Gabrilovi? - Me?trovi?, dok Ivan Me?trovi? jednog dana nije izostavio Gabrilovi? iz svoga prezimena.Tijekom studija u Be?u (1904.) susre?e Ru?u Klein koja je radila kao kitni?arka u salonu damskih ?e?ira. Otac gospo?ice Klein nije odobravao vezu svoje k?erke s 21-godi?njim selja?i?em gotovo praznih d?epova i nakon neuspjelih uvjeravanja 1905. protjeruje k?erku iz ku?e. Naredne dvije godine Ru?a i Ivan ?ive zajedno i vjen?avaju se 1907. ?ivjeli su u bijednim uvjetima te Ru?a nipo?to nije htjela imati djecu, dok je Ivan to ?elio. Kada su se materijalno osigurali Ru?a vi?e nije mogla ra?ati djecu i to je dovelo do razvoda braka 1928. u ?akovcu. ?est godina ranije (1922.) Me?trovi? upoznaje Olgu Kester?anek i nastaje nova veza iz koje ?e se, prije nego ?to Ivan i Olga stupe u brak, roditi dvoje djece - Marta (ro?. 1924.) i Tvrtko (ro?. 1925.). Kasnije ?e Olga i Ivan imati jo? dvoje djece - Mariju (ro?. 1927.), zvanu Maricu i Matu (ro?. 1930.). Ta djeca ro?ena su u braku jer se Ivan Me?trovi? iste godine kada se rastao od Ru?e vjen?ao s Olgom, tako?er u ?akovcu.Kako su Marta i Tvrtko ro?eni dok je Me?trovi? jo? bio o?enjen Ru?om Klein Marta i Tvrko Me?trovi? bili su izvanbra?na djece bez prava na nasljedstvo i o?evo prezime. Problem je rije?en ukazom kralja Aleksandra Kara?or?evi?a od 20. svibnja 1926. u kojem (mije?avinom hrvatskog i srpskog jezika) stoji: "Mi Aleksandar I. po milosti bo?joj i volji narodnoj Kralj Srba, Hrvata i Slovenaca na predlog Na?eg Ministra Pravde re?ili smo i re?avamo da se dne 13. marta 1924. u rimokatoli?koj crkvi Brajtenfeld u Be?u po rimokatoli?kom obredu na ime Marta - Marija kr?teno ?ensko dijete, zatim dne 5. maja 1925. u Zagrebu ro?eno i dne 29. septembra 1925. u rimokatoli?kom obredu na ime Tvrtko - Ivan kr?teno mu?ko dijete, oboje nezakonita djece Olge Kester?anek i Ivana Me?trovi?a proglase zakonitom djecom Ivana Me?trovi?a, kipara u Zagrebu, sa svim pravima zakonite djece..."Nakon vje?anja Me?trovi? je ?ivio s Olgom i djecom u Zagrebu u dana?njoj Mleta?koj ulici 8, a prva susjeda (u Mleta?koj 10) bila im je Ru?a Klein. U tome braku Olga je znala biti nesretna jer ju je, primjerice, na prijemu u hotel u Esplanada uo?ljivo izbjegavao nadbiskup Alojzije Stepinac koji se nije ?elio s njom rukovati jer se nije vjen?ala u crkvi. Kasnije (25. travnja 1942.) Olga i Ivan vjen?ati ?e se i crkveno. Tada je Me?trovi? bio u ku?nom pritvoru, a Olga se po suprugovoj ?elji sklonila u Split. Stoga je umjesto Olge na vje?anju bila njezina zastupnica. Ivan Me?trovi? nije bio blizak supruginoj rodbini niti se, izuzev Olgine sestre Side, s nekim od njih dru?io. Sida je Me?trovi?u dok je u jesen 1941. bio u usta?kom zatvoru u Zagrebu nosila hranu.Kao mlad umjetnik Me?trovi? je zamislio monumentalni Vidovdanski hram koji nije mogao biti realiziran. Fragmenti tog hrama izlo?eni su 1911. u srpskom paviljonu na Me?unarodnoj izlo?bi u Rimu, a zahvaljuju?i kojima je stekao svjetsko ime. Sada se ti radovi nalaze u Narodnom muzeju u Beogradu (Milo? Obili?, Kosovka djevojka, Sr?a Zlopogle?a, Kraljevi? Marko, Udovica). Za vrijeme Prvog svjetskog rata ?ive?i u Rimu, Londonu, ?enevi, Cannesu i Parizu napustio je realisti?ki stil svojih dotada?njih skulptura punih poleta i senzualnosti te je pre?ao na izradu cijelog niza religionznih tema, ve?inom ra?enih u drvetu. Inspiracija su mu bile bizantska, gotska i crna?ka skulputura. Najpoznatiji radovi iz tog ciklusa su Raspe?e i Madona. Poslije Prvog svjetskog rata nastanio se u Zagrebu gdje je bio prvi rektor novoosnovane Umjetni?ke akademije. U razdoblju izme?u dva svjetska rata kada se naro?ito zanosio Michaelangelom izradio je velik broj reljefa u kamenu, nagih figura i portreta. Najpoznatiji su svakako spomenik Grguru Ninskom u Splitu, Strossmayeru u Zagrebu, Zahvalnosti Francuskoj u Beogradu, Neznanom junaku na Avali, Mileti?u u Novom Sadu i Indijancima u Chichagu.Poslije Drugog svjetskog rata nastanio se u Sjedinjenim Dr?avama rade?i za me?unarodnu publiku, ali ?alju?i svoja djela i u tada?anju Jugoslaviju (npr. spomenik Njego?u). Kao prvom ?ivom umjetniku u muzeju Metroplitan u New Yorku organizirana je njegova samostalna izlo?ba (1947.). Ameri?ki predsjednik Eisenhower osobno mu je u Bijeloj ku?i uru?io dekret kojim je postao ameri?ki dr?avljanin. Tada ga je u goste na Brijune pozvao i Tito. Tom prilikom Tito ga je pozvao da se preseli u Zagreb, a da ljeta provodi na Brijunima. No, poziv je ostao nedore?en. Tada je Me?trovi? posjetio i Stepinca koji je bio u internaciji u Kra?i?u.Preminuo je u South Bendu 16. sije?nja 1962., a sahranjen je u Otavicama kod Drni?a 24. sije?nja. Prema rije?ima Mate Me?trovi?a (u razgovoru za Jutarnji list od 18. sije?nja 2004.) godine na sahrani se okupilo vi?e od tri tisu?e ljudi, a do?lo je i do incidenta. Nakon ?to je biskup Frano Frani? istaknuo da je Ivan Me?trovi? bio veliki Hrvat i katolik predsjednik drni?kog narodnog odbora Smiljan Relji? dovkinuo je: "Narod tako ne misli!" Relji?u se priklju?ilo jo? pet-?est buka?a povicima: "Fa?isti?ka huljo!, Mi smo vas potukli u ratu!, Zlo?inci!, Popovsko sme?e!" Nakon naraslih tenzija Relji? se s prista?ama povukao, a lijes je unesen u obiteljski mauzolej gdje je biskup Frani? izmolio posljednju molitvu.
