        Barock: Theatrum Mundi. Die Welt als Kunstwerk [Gebundene Ausgabe] Rolf Toman Achim Bednorz Barbara Borngässer Reihe/Serie: Bibliothek der Kunstepochen Kunst Kunstgeschichte Kunststile Barock Barocke

      Nach dem Welterfolg ARS SACRA begibt sich das Team um Rolf Toman erneut auf die Reise. Das Schloss von Versailles und die Peterskirche im Vatikan waren die herausragenden Bauwerke des Barock. Aber ungeahnte Kostbarkeiten finden sich in Europa und in Amerika, der Neuen Welt: Prachtvolle Bibliotheken, Tresorräume der Wissenschaft oder geheimnisvolle Gartenanlagen, kunstfertige Porzellanarbeiten und illusionistische Malerei, um nur einige Aspekte dieser vielschichtigen Epoche zu nennen. Mit Leidenschaft und Akribie gelang es dem Fotografen Achim Bednorz Details von Bildwerken vor die Linse zu bekommen, wie sie selbst vor Ort am Original nicht wahrgenommen werden. Die exklusiv für den vorliegenden Band so entstandenen Fotografien kommen durch das große Format besonders gut zur Geltung. Die Autorin Barbara Borngässer entwirft dazu ihre Geschichte des Barock und entführt den Leser in das damalige Welttheater, das Theatrum Mundi. Ein prachtvolles Buch mit hervorragenden Abbildungen. Die Kunst des Barock. Ein Traum. (Frankfurter Rundschau) Das Welttheater in einem Prachtband. Was der Foliant vor Augen rückt, das sind die Räume, Fassaden, Skulpturen und Gemälde. Und zwar mit exzellenten Fotografien in [] stattlichen Formaten. (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) Die atemberaubenden Bilder in den opulenten, sieben Kilogramm schweren Büchern [] sprechen für sich. Die neue Generation von Kunstbüchern. (Express) Über den Autor: Rolf Toman wollte ursprünglich Lehrer werden. Doch nach Abschluss des Zweiten Staatsexamens folgten statt der Schultätigkeit weitere Lehr- und Arbeitsjahre in einem großen internationalen Verlagshaus als Verlagslektor. Ab 1992 arbeitete er als freier Herausgeber für verschiedene international wirkende Verlagshäuser. Kunstgeschichtliche Epochenbände bildeten das Zentrum seiner langjährigen Arbeit. Rolf Toman lebt und arbeitet in Südfrankreich. Der Kölner Fotograf Achim Bednorz arbeitet seit über 20 Jahren für internationale Publikationen zu kunsthistorischen Themen. Er hat sich vor allem als Spezialist für Sakralräume einen Namen gemacht. Sein Interpretations-Prinzip ist denkbar einfach: maximale Wirklichkeitsnähe, d.h. Darstellung des Objekts in ausgewogener Lichtführung, Erkennbarkeit wie bei Idealbedingungen, Verzicht auf jede Effekthascherei. Achim Bednorz ist Architekturfotograf und arbeitet seit vielen Jahren für Buchprojekte zu kunsthistorischen Themen. Als Spezialist für Sakralräume hat er sich einen Namen gemacht. Dr. Barbara Borngässer studierte Kunstgeschichte, Romanistik und Archäologie in Berlin, Florenz und Salamanca. Sie schrieb zahlreiche Publikationen zur Kunst und Architektur der Neuzeit.

        THE STARLIGHT CREEK ANGLING SOCIETY [SIGNED COPY]

      Meadowland Press, Stone Harbor 1992 - First edition. Limited to 500 copies, signed by the author on the limitation page. Frontis, line drawings. Black cloth with spine titles in silver. Housed in publisher's slipcase. Still In publisher's shrinkwrap, as new copy. Extremely scarce and unopened copy of an esoteric and reverberating classic in the practical and philosophical art of flyfishing. Middleton was a North American nature writer who hailed from the South, who was an award-winning outdoors columnist who wrote for various publications such as Southern Living and Louisiana Life. He lived but 44 years, dying of a suspected brain aneurism. ".At the time of his death at age 44 in 1993, Harry Middleton was working three jobs. He was a factory janitor, a grocery store stocker and a garbage man in suburban Birmingham, Alabama. He was also a fly fisherman and one of America's greatest writers, known for creative nonfiction and as a memoirist. Never heard of him, right? It could be that solitary activities combining athleticism, concentration and contemplativeness result in the deepest consciousness. Perhaps none fit this description better than fly fishing; certainly, no fly fisherman exemplifies the potential better than Harry Middleton. Fly fishing was as needful an element to Harry as oxygen is to the rest of us. All the way through an unusual life, fly fishing was much more to Harry than a hobby. It was a connection to all creatures and life beyond its typical experience. Fly fishing made living deeper to Harry than the activity of a rod and reel, deeper, too, than the best of writing. Planted in the rushing waters of a mountain stream, Harry stood observantly amid universal consciousness. That is, after all, where the trout are. The fish are sought, caught and released much as thoughts that are appreciated instead of consumed, permitted freedom to tantalize another fisherman at another time."(From "Fishing and Writing Lesson From Harry Middleton", by Michael Driver -- in the public domain).

        Der Architektonische Raum: Funfzehn Lektionen Uber die Disposition der Menschlichen Behausung [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Dom H. Van Der Laan (Autor)

      Brill Academic Pub, 1992. 1992. Hardcover. 16,5 x 1,9 x 24,8 cm. Der architectonische Raum'ist die umfassendste und klarste Abhandlung über die Natur, die Wirkung und die Bedeutung der Architektur, die bisher versucht wurde.Es ist das Ergebnis des Lebenswerkes seines Autors über die Idee, die ihn seit seiner Kindheit beschäftigte: die suche nach der Grundlage der Urform des Bauens.Architektur nicht nur als Ausdruck, aber als Voraussetzung von menschlicher Kultur sehend, glaubt Hans van der Laan, daß der Ursprung in der Architektur selbst gesucht werden muß, nicht so sehr in technologischen, sozialen oder ideologischen Faktoren.Seine Bauwerke und Schriften ragen heraus wie steinerne Tafeln inmitten vorherrschender Unsicherheit und Opportonismus.Der Stil und die Methode seines Buches - sein rationaler Aufbau auf Argumenten aus einfachen alltäglichen Wahrnehmungen - erinnern stark an die frühen griechischen Denker, so wie Van der Laan's"Architektur"die Erinnerung an die Bauwerke und Städte der antiken Welt zurückruft. A treatise on the nature, purpose and meaning of architecture, relfecting the author's search for the archetypal basis of the act of building. Seeing architecture not merely as the expression, but as the precondition of human culture, Hans van der Laan believes that its principles must be sought within architecture itself, rather than in technological, social or ideological factors.

        The English Patient

      Bloomsbury/M&S/Knopf/Bloomsbury, London/Toronto/New York/London 1992 - A Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of this Booker Prize and Governor General's Prize. This set includes the UK, Canadian, US and UK Limited First Editions - all SIGNED by Michael Ondaatje on their respective title pages! The UK Edition being the "true" first, but the Canadian Edition is highly sought after given Ondaatje's being based there. A breathtaking story of love and passion that twists through London's Blitz and the intricacies of bomb disposal, through the mysterious, often dangerous world of desert exploration. Michael Ondaatje brought his formiable poetic and narrative powers to bear on the destiny of his four characters. In prose that soars he reveals the complex impact of public conflict on private lives. As full of resonances as a dream, "The English Patient" stands as Ondaatje's finest work. The book was adapted into a 1996 film by Anthony Minghella, starring Ralph Fiennes, Kristin Scott Thomas, Willem Dafoe, Colin Firth, and Juliette Binoche. The film received nine Academy Awards - including Best Picture and Director - at the 69th Academy Awards. Books would be sent via Prioirity Mail [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mikhail Gorbachev in Israel: Bar Ilan University Speech on Religion, Perestroika, Creative Genius & Forces of Annihilation

      Ramat Gan, Israel 1992 - Typed Document Signed, Speech Delivered at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel, June 16, 1992, signed "M Gorbachev" in blue ink at top of first page and dated "16 vi 92." 6 pp., 8 5/8 x 11 1/8 in. "Scientific successes in the 20th century made for an unprecedented upsurge of the creative force of human genius. Yet, at the same time, they unleashed unheard-of forces of annihilation, of subjugation of many by man, of destruction of the environment. .""The idea of perestroika was to free society from totalitarianism, arbitrariness, coercion and violence, to give people freedom, while at the same time bringing about a change in international relations." Excerpts"Bearing in mind the nature of your university, I'd like to share my thoughts on the correlation between science and spirituality, between morals and politics. Scientific successes in the 20th century made for an unprecedented upsurge of the creative force of human genius. Yet, at the same time, they unleashed unheard-of forces of annihilation, of subjugation of many by man, of destruction of the environment. .The roots of the crisis of modern civilization lie in man himself, in the difficulties of his adaptation to the rate of technological progress, in the lag in the adjustment of age-old moral norms, which are in harmony with Man's inner nature.The concept of man as "the measure of all things" that dates back to antiquity has now shown its limitations. The "conquest" of nature has turned against man. And if it is true that mankind's future now hinges upon the preservation of the balance of Nature, on the preservation of all forms of life- and this is so- the Life is the measure of all things. .Respect for Man as a distinctive personality and for his dignity: the ability to put oneself in someone else's place; the striving for agreement, for a reasonable compromise - such are the criteria for a peaceful transition to a more humane world order, to what I call a new civilization.You may ask: What is the role that religion is called upon to play here? This is a great philosophical issue. Naturally, I can only venture some ideas about it.Among its other flaws, Marxism, which held us captive for so long, took a simplistic approach, treating religious faith as a self-delusion, as a mirage. The mistake was further aggravated when several generations of Soviet people were brainwashed in the spirit of atheism. The notion of religion as "the opium of the people" was inculcated from early childhood. Efforts were made to have the "communist moral code" take the place of religious ethics. However, as soon as society was freed from the ideological shackles, thought had to be given to the role religion should play in social progress.The religious renaissance in Russia, in other newly-independent states, and Israel too, is in many respects linked to the fact that religion acts as a factor for national and state consolidation.I can say from my own experience that it is very difficult to merge politics and morality. I rejected immoral means in politics. The idea of perestroika was to free society from totalitarianism, arbitrariness, coercion and violence, to give people freedom, while at the same time bringing about a change in international relations.We are going through a turning point in history. Not only my country but the whole world as well has found itself at the crossroads. The road to a new civilization will be a long and arduous one. It would be hardly possible to comprehend it and to chart it without faith, without a religious foundation.Ladies and gentlemen, the image of an eternally blossoming and fruit-bearing Tree of Life holds a special place in the Biblical picture of the world. Let us bear this image in mind when we work for the future and contemplate it."Historical BackgroundThe Soviet Union broke off diplomatic relations with Israel after the 1967 Six-Day War. Premier Gorbachev re-established diplomatic relations . (See website for full description)

        Passiflora caerula or blue passion flower].[Lekzigt, near Dordrecht?, ca. 1780?]. Folio. (43 x 27.5 cm). Watercolour drawing on laid paper, signed on the back by the artist, "J. van der Vinne Jzn.". Attached by the top corners to a (19th-century?) wove millboard mount kept in a modern passe-partout.

      - Hans van Leeuwen Collection II: 18th and early 19th century Dutch and Flemish master drawings, Amsterdam, Christie&#146;s, 24 November 1992, lot 430; for the Van der Vinne family: Scheen, p. 551. A beautiful, large watercolour drawing of a blue passion flower (Passiflora caerula, image 42 x 27 cm), by the Haarlem painter Jan Jansz. van der Vinne (1734-1805), showing a vine with two flowers fully opened and another closed, as well as numerous leaves, buds and runners. The passion flower is indigenous to South America, but became a popular ornamental plant in Europe due to its exotic and spectacular appearance. Jan Jansz. van der Vinne no doubt learned to paint from his father Jan van der Vinne (1699-1753), a member of the Haarlem painters' guild best known for his flower and landscape drawings. Before Jan Jansz.'s botanical drawings came to light he was best known for his landscape drawings and etchings, but it now appears that his flower drawings were his most important work.In fine condition. A beautiful botanical watercolour, showing the spectacular passion flower.
