        Il Battistero di San Giovanni a Firenze

Col. e B/N n.t. e f.t. ISBN 8876862749 N/D 9788876862748 (Mirabilia ItaliaeCollana diretta da Salvatore Settis.) Testo in Italiano e Inglese. 2 Volumi volume primo: Atlante fotografico p. 632; 1076 illustrazioni a colori. volume secondo: Testi. Saggi e schede p. 520; 220 illustrazioni in bianco e nero. testi di: R. C. Chiarlo, A. M. Giusti, P. Guarducci, I. Hueck, S. Lomartire, G. Morolli, E. Neri Lusanna, S. Panciera, A.Paolucci, F. Salvi, M. Tavoni, T. Verdon. fotografie di:M. Falsini, M. Ronchetti e P. Tosi. Il Battistero di San Giovanni è uno dei più importanti monumenti italiani. Un materiale iconografico nuovo, di alta qualità e di taglio inedito, rivela lo splendore del Battistero nella sua interezza e in ogni dettaglio, dalla maestosa sequenza degli archi e dei marmi policromi dell’architettura interna, ai preziosi mosaici della volta, ai particolari più inaccessibili dei matronei. Una visione assolutamente unica e straordinaria. Il Battistero di San Giovanni, l’edificio ottagonale in marmo bianco e verde collocato al centro di Firenze, al punto che si ha l’impressione che da lì la città si irradi e prenda significato, non è soltanto un monumento antico e insigne: è, anche, una splendida antologia, in marmo, in mosaico, in bronzo, della grande arte fiorentina.Frutto di una sequenza millenaria di fasi costruttive, modifiche e restauri, il Battistero è una foresta di immagini che ha il suo trionfo nella grande ruota dei mosaici della cupola, ai quali lavorò probabilmente anche Cimabue. Ma prima ancora di entrare, la porta realizzata da Andrea Pisano e, soprattutto, quella di Lorenzo Ghiberti, che Michelangelo chiamò "del Paradiso", accolgono il visitatore con i loro preziosi e raffinati bassorilievi in bronzo.Le fotografie del libro esplorano il Battistero in ogni dettaglio, riproducendo integralmente sia capolavori di grande fama come il monumento funerario dell’antipapa Giovanni XXIII, sia parti nascoste o irraggiungibili, come le volte affrescate dei matronei o la spettacolare visione verticale dell’intero pavimento intarsiato, senza dimenticare le opere d’arte un tempo facenti parte del Battistero e oggi distribuite tra i musei cittadini, tra cui le formelle originali della porta del Paradiso. Avvalendosi di una campagna fotografica di ampiezza e sistematicità inedite, i saggi del volume tracciano un quadro completo del monumento e della sua storia.Un saggio di Timothy Verdon esplora i significati del Battistero e il suo ruolo nella storia della città, a partire dall’importanza simbolica della sua forma ottagonale. Gabriele Morolli, Enrica Neri Lusanna,Anna Maria Giusti e Irene Hueck affrontano l’architettura del Battistero, le sue fasi costruttive, i mosaici e la loro iconografia, dando importanti contributi a sostegno della sua datazione.Antonio Paolucci analizza le sculture: le porte ma anche i gruppi plastici esterni e interni e gli arredi ora conservati nel Museo dell’Opera del Duomo che costituivano il patrimonio storico del San Giovanni.Un capitolo a parte è dedicato ai restauri subiti dal patrimonio artistico.Carlo R. Chiarlo si occupa invece dei manufatti archeologici, come i sarcofagi e i materiali di reimpiego.Mirko Tavoni parte infine da due note terzine di Dante per ricostruire l’assetto e l’arredo dell’antico fonte battesimale.L’apparato di schede permette al lettore di conoscere criticamente il Battistero pezzo per pezzo, disarticolato in tutte le sue parti (capitelli e colonne, arredi mobili e sculture, affreschi e mosaici).(C0) 25X33 8200 grammi Ril. in Seta Ill.

        THE MARX SISTERS

      London: Hamish Hamilton, [1994]., 1994. First edition. Signed. Author's first book. Fine in dust jacket. The death of one of three elderly sisters doesn't look quite right, but why would anyone want to kill her? Meredith Winterbottom lived in an undeveloped section of London surrounded by her collection of old books, and her long standing neighbors--mainly refugees from the horrors of Central Europe in the thirties. What possible motive could there be? Could elderly Meredith Winterbottom really have been killed for the politics of another age? A closing bookshop, unpublished letters of Karl Marx, inscribed first editions of Marx's books, and the possible existence of an unsuspected fourth volume of Das Kapital are all elements surrounding the deaths of the great granddaughters of Karl Marx. Introduces Det. Sgt. Kathy Kolla and Det. C.I. David Brock to investigate the reasons. Recommended. John Creasey Award nominee.

        Thurber's Dogs. Suite for Orchestra after Drawings by James Thurber. Movement VI: Hunting Hounds. Autograph musical manuscript sketches in condensed score of almost the entire final movement of the work, consisting of music for sections B-N, i.e., pp. 111-137 of the published full score

      - "Thurber's Dogs was commissioned for the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus and the Thurber House to commemorate the 100th birthday anniversary of author James Thurber. It was completed on August 13, 1994. The first performances took place on December 2 and 4, 1994; the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus was conducted, respectively, by the composer and Timothy Russell, the orchestra's Music Director. The work has been recorded by the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra of Columbus for release in the fall of 1995." From Mr. Schickele's commentary accompanying the manuscriptA composition student of Roy Harris, Darius Milhaud, Persichetti and Bergsma, "Schickele has become the leading American musical satirist, giving concerts throughout the USA in which he lectures, sings, conducts and plays as guest soloist with symphony orchestras or with his own ensemble. The humorous compositions range from outrageous parodies, such as the cantata Iphigenia in Brooklyn, to ingenious combinations of antithetical styles, as in Blaues Gras (Bluegrass Cantata), and are full of surprising violations of familiar styles, musical forms and phrase structures, harmonic conventions and orchestration. Schickele’s commentaries and his mock-scholarly The Definitive Biography of P.D.Q. Bach. juxtapose incongruities from contemporary culture with relatively austere academic and classical canons, and are reflective of the eclectic musical menu of the modern American public. One of the most widely performed and published of contemporary composers working in many different styles.". Deane L. Root in Grove onlineThurber (1894-1961), one of the foremost American humorists of the 20th century, had a great love of dogs and included them in many of his drawings, calling them "sound creatures in a crazy world." Thurber House website Folio, ca. 356 x 278 mm. Unbound. 9 leaves notated in pencil on one side of each leaf of 18-stave AZTEC C-18 music manuscript paper. A working manuscript, with erasures, alterations and cancellations. Together with: A copy of the published full score of the movement, i.e., pp. 107-138, and a 1-1/2 page printed commentary by the composer discussing the background of the work and briefly describing the music: "I should say, however, that as I was working on the last movement, I found myself thinking as much about the fox as about the hunting hounds. This, coupled with the fact that I recently acquired a recording of background music from the old movie serials that I used to go to as a kid, probably accounts for the quite ungentlemanly, almost lurid quality of the chase music."

      American University in Cairo Press, Cairo 1994 - A Very Good + or better copy of the first edition, first printing in English translation, of this novel first published in Arabic in 1977 (gentle pushing at the spine ends, light foxing to the closed page block's top edge, two corners lightly tapped), in a Fine dust jacket (some tiny rubs and pushes), SIGNED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ on the half-title with a nice pre-stabbing signature; the novel presents a series of episodes taking place over 12 generations of an Egyptian family living amongst the urban rabble, people Mahfouz refers to as "harafish". Naguib Mahfouz won the 1988 Nobel Prize in Literature for being an author "who, through works rich in nuance - now clear-sightedly realistic, now evocatively ambiguous - has formed an Arabian narrative art that applies to all mankind", making him the only Egyptian, and the only author writing in Arabic, ever to win the Prize. In October, 1994 Mahfouz survived an assassination attempt perpetrated by religious extremists. ["The Harafish" was published in April, 1994.] The attack damaged nerves in his right hand, rendering Mahfouz unable to write for more than a few minutes each day, and seriously affecting his handwriting. Signed copies of this Nobel Prize Winner's books are rather uncommon and nice copies of this title with a pre-stabbing signature are understandably difficult to find. A Very Good+ copy, SIGNED BY NAGUIB MAHFOUZ prior to his stabbing and thus in the months shortly after publication. QUITE UNCOMMON TO SCARCE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Mystery Box

      Long Beach, California:: Pia Pizzo,, 1994.. One-of-a-Kind. 4 x 6 x 2"; 24 pages. Materials: a variety of black and red papers, thread, ribbon, cloth, wood fragments, and black and red inks. One pocket page with 3.4 x 7.5" folded letter and 4 fragments of text with burned edges. Bound in black paper covers with black grosgrain ribbon closures. Although it is not mentioned in the book, in private conversation Pizzo revealed she was inspired by the line "We are such stuff as dreams are made on" from Act IV, Scene I of Shakespeare's The Tempest (IV.i.). The enigmatic letter and text fragments seem to pay homage to a dear friend who has been lost - "drowned into the river of mud." As usual with Pizzo's work, the colors - somber with fleck's of gold - and texture - like layers of weathered skins - combine to suggest a silent fugue.
