        FRANS VAN MIERIS THE ELDER

      Aetas Aurea,Vol. I , 1981, Davaco. . Aetas Aurea,Vol. I , 1981, Davaco. . Cloth bound, dusjacket, 2 vols. in 4to. 516 pp. of text, 468 illustrations, including 12 color plates. Frans van Mieris the Elder is one of the major seventeenth-century Dutch genre painters (1635-1681). His pictures are of remarkable quality, and they attest to his vital role in the development of painting in his time. With Gerard ter Borch, Nicolaes Maes, Pieter de Hooch, Johannes Vermeer, Gabriel Metsu and Gerard Dou, Frans van Mieris participated in the greatest era of Dutch genre painting.This study attempts first to establish the core of surviving works, setting them in chronological order based on a structure of dated paintings. Undated pictures are arranged in relationship to this core and to dated or datable paintings by other artists. Van Mieris' œuvre is most interesting in this latter aspect: in the establishment of subjects and stylistic formulae he often precedes his contemporaries. By combining various elements from earlier pictures with his personal style Van Mieris made a significant contribution to Dutch genre painting.Van Mieris's leadership among the fijnschilders of his day contributed significantly to the development of Dutch painting towards a tighter, more refined style. Often, paintings executed in this manner during the last quarter of the seventeenth century can be seen to derive from his prototype or from a series of related paintings based on his primary example.

        Selected Poems

      London: Anvil Press, , 1981.. London: Anvil Press, 1981. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Odysseus Elytis on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Chosen and introduced by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard. Selected Poems is drawn from various periods of Elytis' career and traces his development from early surrealism, in which he transforms French influence into a distinct personal voice and mythology, through the dramatic style of The Axion Esti with its blend of spirituality and earthiness, up to the later work in which he experiments with new modes for expressing his perennial themes. Elytis was born in Crete in 1911, and began to publish poetry in the 1930s. He took part in the campaign against the Italian fascists in Albania in 1940-41. He was one of the most prominent poets of the Greek resistance during the Nazi occupation. In 1979 Elytis was awarded the Nobel Prize for his poetry which, "against the background of Greek tradition, depicts with sensuous strength and intellectual clear-sightedness modern man's struggle for freedom and creativeness.

With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the jacket with slightly sunned spine panel. First edition, first printing of one of Gould's most famous and controversial books. Inscribed by the author on the half title, "For Larry Owens, best wishes, Stephen Jay Gould". In The Mismeasure of Man, Gould analyses craniometry and IQ testing to point out the unconscious biases and a priori assumptions built into much "scientific" research. Though researchers recently made the case that Gould was incorrect about one aspect of the book's argument, it still stands as an important indictment of biological determinism and a lucid reminder that those engaged in research of any type must be aware of their own privilege and biases. A superb copy, rare in such beautiful condition.

        The Forgotten Colony. A History of the English-Speaking Communities in Argentina

      London: Hutchinson, 1981. Hutchinson, London, 1981. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. Very scarce in this first edition, &#39;The Forgotten Colony&#39; is the extraordinary and eventful story of the British in Argentina - from the isolated, traditional Welsh communities in Patagonia to the chic social world of the Buenos Aires Harrods and the Hurlingham Club. Since the early nineteenth century Britain has had a fascinating relationship with Argentina, one of the few countries where the English, Irish, Scots and Welsh settled but did not rule. This is a serious but entertaining account of a much-neglected subject. Contains 15 illustrations. Slight wear to final couple of illustrations. Size: 8vo - over 7.75 - 9.75" tall. 318 pp. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact, but spine is cocked. One slight knick to dust jacket. Previous owner&#39;s signature in ink. Top edge marked. Corners slightly bumped. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: History; Argentina; Modern; ISBN: 0091453100. ISBN/EAN: 9780091453107. Inventory No: 8297. .
