        BLUMENSTUNDENBUCH SIMON BENING - Faksimile Luzern

      Luzern, Faksimile Verlag, 1991. Hier verkaufen wir das Faksimile des Blumenstundenbuches von Simon Bening - 16. Jahrhundert - Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, München, Clm 23637. Herausgeber war: Faksimile Verlag Luzern. Gedruckt wurde es im Jahr 1991 - limitierte Auflage von nur 980 Stücken! - Faksimile & Kommentarband im Acrylglasschuber; stammt aus sehr gepflegtem Nichtraucherhaushalt; ungelesenes Stück; Entstehung des Originals: zwischen 1520 und 1525 in Gent oder Brügge; Faksimileband umfaßt 438 Seiten; Maße: ca.17,3 x 13cm; 70 Miniaturseiten und über 300 Seiten mit einer Fülle an Buchschmuck (vor allem mit Blumen, aber auch Vögeln und anderem Getier, ausgestattet); roter Samteinband (minimale Spuren); 3-Seiten-Goldschnitt; streng limitierte Auflage von 980 numerierten Exemplaren; Exemplar trägt Nr.91; Kommentarband, anläßlich der Faksimilierung der Handschrift verfasst, enthält auf 431 Seiten die neuesten Untersuchungen anerkannter Experten: Prof. Dr. Eberhard König, Berlin, und Dr. Bodo Brinkmann (ebenfalls absolut ungelesen); Acrylglasschuber (Verwendung eines Bsp.-fotos eines bereits verkauften Exemplars) - Das Blumen-Stundenbuch von Simon Bening gehört zu den schönsten Werken der Buchmalerei. Es demonstriert eindrucksvoll den hohen Rang der flämischen Buchkunst des 16. Jahrhunderts. Zwei Besonderheiten heben dieses Meisterwerk unter allen Stundenbüchern hervor: zum einen das lockere Streumuster von Blumen oder Vögeln, das jede Textseite ziert; zum anderen die vielen unterschiedlichen Formen der Seitengestaltung innerhalb einer Handschrift. Deshalb gilt dieses Werk in seiner Gestaltungsvielfalt als unübertroffener Höhepunkt seiner Zeit. Simon Bening stammte aus einer Künstlerfamilie. Schon sein Vater war Buchmaler, es lässt sich jedoch kein Werk eindeutig mit ihm in Verbindung bringen. Simon war ohne Zweifel der berühmteste Buchmaler seiner Zeit. Er wurde 1483, vermutlich in Gent, geboren. 1500 scheint er schon künstlerisch tätig gewesen zu sein. In den Jahren bis 1519, als er das Bürgerrecht von Brügge erwarb, war er offensichtlich sowohl dort als auch in Gent tätig. Er war zweimal verheiratet und hatte insgesamt fünf Töchter. Im Alter von 78 Jahren verstarb er im Jahre 1561. Wie bei Stundenbüchern allgemein üblich, beginnt die Handschrift auch hier mit einem Kalender. Danach folgt ein Eröffnungsgebet, an das sich Auszüge aus den vier Evangelien anschließen. Danach sind sieben verschiedene Gebetsstunden eingefügt, die jeweils das Passionsgeschehen veranschaulichen; der Bericht folgt vollständig dem Bericht des Evangelisten Johannes. Das Kernstück des Stundenbuches ist aber das Marienoffizium, das sich aus biblischen Texten wie etwa Psalmen zusammensetzt. Abgeschlossen wird das Werk durch die sieben Bußpsalmen, eine Litanei, ein Totenoffizium sowie verschiedene Gebete an die Trinität, an Maria und einige Heilige. Der Text folgt dem Gebrauch nach Rom und engt daher die Verwendung des Stundenbuchs nicht ein. Es konnte gleichsam "international" verwendet werden, ohne lokale Einschränkungen befürchten zu müssen. Die Schrift des Stundenbuches, eine Gotica Rotunda, ist durchgehend einheitlich und daher höchstwahrscheinlich von nur einem Schreiber aufgezeichnet worden. Erwerben Sie hier eine wahre Rarität. Das Werk ist absolut ungelesen! Alle Preise incl. MwSt., AGB, Kundeninformationen, Widerrufsbelehrung, Musterwiderrufsformular finden Sie bei unseren Anbieterinformationen..

        Storia dei Musulmani di Sicilia - 7 volumi

      Seconda edizione di un capolavoro della storiografia siciliana. A cura di Carlo Alfonso Nallino.La "Storia dei Musulmani di Sicilia" di Michele Amari, la cui prima edizione uscì in 3 volumi dal 1854 al 1872, rappresenta uno dei monumenti più insigni della storiografia europea dell'Ottocento. Nel lungo percorso che si snoda dalla Sicilia bizantina alla nascita della potenza araba, dalla conquista musulmana all'impresa normanna, Amari, erede della grande tradizione storiografica romantica, e in pieno clima risorgimentale, intravede il sorgere di una Nazione italiana che assimila le conquiste culturali e scientifiche della Sicilia araba e normanna. La storia di quest'opera è molto complessa, di fatti Amari in seguito all'uscita della prima edizione di "Storia dei musulmani di Sicilia", impiego' altri 50 anni circa per correggerla e rivederla, apportando modifiche di notevole importanza. Felice LeMonnier (l'editore della prima edizione) , non volle pubblicare una seconda edizione , infatti l'opera usci' nel 1930 , valenti storici tra cui Tommasini, Schiaparelli e Nallino si occuparono di apportare le modifiche prodotte da Michele Amari. Per ovvi motivi la seconda edizione di questa famosa opera risulta essere piu' completa della prima in quanto racchiude in se diversi decenni di scoperte, documenti e riferimenti al libro Biblioteca Arabo Sicula dello stesso La libreria offre per un periodo limitato uno sconto del 10% su tutti i suoi libri.

        "Goethes Garten bei Weimar.".

      . Kupferstich, auf Velin. 39:51,3 cm. - Verso: Bleistiftskizze einer Landschaft. Insgesamt mit Altersspuren, Knickfalte unten geglättet. Literatur: Nagler 4; W. Schneider (Hrsg.), Romantische Ansichten von Weimar, 1991, S. 11, Abb. 3. Probedruck vor aller Schrift mit Rändchen um die Plattenkante. Sehr selten!. Roux begann seine Ausbildung mit dem Studium der Mathematik an der Universität in Jena, doch er interessierte sich bald schon nur noch für die Malerei. Ersten Unterricht im "anatomischen Zeichnen" erhielt er an der Universität von Christian Immanuel Oehme (1759-1832). Mit Justus Christian Loder (Chirurg, 1753-1832), den er durch Oehme kennengelernt hatte, entstand eine interessante Zusammenarbeit und Roux machte sich zunehmend einen guten Namen. J. W. von Goethe und Friedrich Justin Bertuch (Verleger, 1747-1822) hielten große Stücke auf ihn. Als Meisterschüler von Johann Christian Klengel (1751-1824) avancierte Roux zu einem gefragten Porträtisten. Die Malerin Louise Seidler (1786-1866) unterrichtete er von 1805-1808 in der Pastellmalerei. Roux wurde nach seiner Ankunft am 26.03.1816 in Heidelberg - mit einem Empfehlungsschreiben Goethes an die Brüder Boisserees - 1818 Nachfolger Friedrich Rottmanns (1768-1818) als Kunstlehrer an der Universität Heidelberg. In Goethes Empfehlungsschreiben stand zu lesen, daß Roux sich als "gebildeter Mann und schätzbarer Künstler bewähren werde". Er veröffentlichte in den folgenden Jahren im Heidelberger Kunstverlag von Joseph Engelmann zahlreiche Publikationen mit Ansichten aus dem Neckartal, der Rheinlande und dem Taunus. Goethe bewohnte das Gartenhaus an den Ilm-Wiesen in Weimar von 1776-1782, bevor er das Haus am Frauenplan bezog.

        Japan at Liberty

      An exceptional collection of rare ephemera from the exhibition at the Liberty Department Store, shown as part of the Fall 1991 London Japanese Festival, and featuring the catalog of the first exhibit of design prototypes by Tokyo Creative, the group of fourteen established in 1990 to develop and promote the best in Japanese design. With the catalog is offered: the exhibitor guide with folding floor plan and set of illustrated exhibitor cards, the invitation to the opening of the exhibition, and the business card of Gary Rowland and associates, the design group responsible for the publications' design, including the original geometric silk screen print for the catalog's cover. Most of the prototypes were later manufactured. Several have been recognized as designs of distinction including: the first Muji Shaft Drive Bicycle, design by Yasui Satoshi, 1 of 25 contemporary designs selected for the London Design Museum; the first Olympus µ[mju:], an ultraportable with no case and integrated lens cover, ergonomically designed to fit in one hand, design by Yoshihisa Maitani; the Olympus Ecru, a limited edition automatic compact, white with finishing after optics instrumentation, design by Naoki Sakai, given Germany's 1991 Innovative Design Award; and the Seiko Asterisk wrist watch with stainless steel block body and analogue display inspired by 1950s sports car speedometers, design by Sakai and Shunji Yamanaka.

        BLUMENSTUNDENBUCH SIMON BENING - Faksimile Luzern

      Faksimile Verlag, Luzern 1991 - Hier verkaufen wir das Faksimile des Blumenstundenbuches von Simon Bening - 16. Jahrhundert – Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, München, Clm 23637. Herausgeber war: Faksimile Verlag Luzern. Gedruckt wurde es im Jahr 1991 - limitierte Auflage von nur 980 Stücken! - Faksimile & Kommentarband im Acrylglasschuber; stammt aus sehr gepflegtem Nichtraucherhaushalt; ungelesenes Stück; Entstehung des Originals: zwischen 1520 und 1525 in Gent oder Brügge; Faksimileband umfaßt 438 Seiten; Maße: ca.17,3 x 13 cm; 70 Miniaturseiten und über 300 Seiten mit einer Fülle an Buchschmuck (vor allem mit Blumen, aber auch Vögeln und anderem Getier, ausgestattet); roter Samteinband; 3-Seiten-Goldschnitt; streng limitierte Auflage von 980 numerierten Exemplaren; Exemplar trägt Nr. 954 - Kommentarband, anläßlich der Faksimilierung der Handschrift verfaßt, enthält auf 431 Seiten die neuesten Untersuchungen anerkannter Experten: Prof. Dr. Eberhard König, Berlin, und Dr. Bodo Brinkmann (ebenfalls absolut ungelesen), Acrylglasschuber (Verwendung eines Bsp.-fotos eines bereits verkauften Exemplars) - Das Blumen-Stundenbuch von Simon Bening gehört zu den schönsten Werken der Buchmalerei. Es demonstriert eindrucksvoll den hohen Rang der flämischen Buchkunst des 16. Jahrhunderts. Zwei Besonderheiten heben dieses Meisterwerk unter allen Stundenbüchern hervor: zum einen das lockere Streumuster von Blumen oder Vögeln, das jede Textseite ziert; zum anderen die vielen unterschiedlichen Formen der Seitengestaltung innerhalb einer Handschrift. Deshalb gilt dieses Werk in seiner Gestaltungsvielfalt als unübertroffener Höhepunkt seiner Zeit. Simon Bening stammte aus einer Künstlerfamilie. Schon sein Vater war Buchmaler, es läßt sich jedoch kein Werk eindeutig mit ihm in Verbindung bringen. Simon war ohne Zweifel der berühmteste Buchmaler seiner Zeit. Er wurde 1483, vermutlich in Gent, geboren. 1500 scheint er schon künstlerisch tätig gewesen zu sein. In den Jahren bis 1519, als er das Bürgerrecht von Brügge erwarb, war er offensichtlich sowohl dort als auch in Gent tätig. Er war zweimal verheiratet und hatte insgesamt fünf Töchter. Im Alter von 78 Jahren verstarb er im Jahre 1561. Wie bei Stundenbüchern allgemein üblich, beginnt die Handschrift auch hier mit einem Kalender. Danach folgt ein Eröffnungsgebet, an das sich Auszüge aus den vier Evangelien anschließen. Danach sind sieben verschiedene Gebetsstunden eingefügt, die jeweils das Passionsgeschehen veranschaulichen; der Bericht folgt vollständig dem Bericht des Evangelisten Johannes. Das Kernstück des Stundenbuches ist aber das Marienoffizium, das sich aus biblischen Texten wie etwa Psalmen zusammensetzt. Abgeschlossen wird das Werk durch die sieben Bußpsalmen, eine Litanei, ein Totenoffizium sowie verschiedene Gebete an die Trinität, an Maria und einige Heilige. Der Text folgt dem Gebrauch nach Rom und engt daher die Verwendung des Stundenbuchs nicht ein. Es konnte gleichsam "international" verwendet werden, ohne lokale Einschränkungen befürchten zu müssen. Die Schrift des Stundenbuches, eine Gotica Rotunda, ist durchgehend einheitlich und daher höchstwahrscheinlich von nur einem Schreiber aufgezeichnet worden. Erwerben Sie hier eine wahre Rarität. Das Werk ist absolut ungelesen! Sprache: deu
