        Iconografia delle orchidee d'Italia. Iconography of italian orchids.

      Subject: (Orchidee). Savignano Panaro, INFS, 2002, 4to brossura, pp. 242 con 82 tavole sciolte su cartoncino, di cm 34 x 49 in apposita cartella custodia. L'eccezionale qualit? sia dei disegni che del testo non fa che maggiormente rimpiangere la miope, se pur non nuova, scelta sul piano culturale degli editori (Ministero dell'Ambiente e INFS). Quest'opera, come tutte le altre consimili, DOVREBBE essere in qualsiasi modo possibile, di facile accesso alla "comunit? naturalistica". Oggi non lo ? nemmeno a quella strettamente scientifica, non in modo sufficiente almeno, ed ? fruita solamente da pochi "sacerdoti" soi disant o ritenuti tali dagli enti preposti. Che sarebbero tenuti istituzionalmente, anche, alla diffusione di una cultura naturalistica !! (Soft Cover)

        Tractatus de herbis British Library Egerton MS 747 Limited Edition

      Folio Society, London 2002 - Fine Hardback. No inscriptions or bookplates. Near Fine clamshell slipcase. Very slight mark to front panel of slipcase. Facsimile edition. 109 leaves full decorative goat skin with raised bands, all edges gilded, with introductory booklet in custom made clamshell box. From a limited edition of 1000 of which this is number 709. Tractatus de herbis originally formed part of a collection of pharmacological texts written in southern England about 1300. The Tractatus contains a vast amount of knowledge and information about plants, their virtues and medicinal uses, that is directly descended from the Greek, Roman and Arabic herbal tradition. The Tractatus now rests within the British Library, catalogued as British Library, Egerton MS 747. It is one of the most celebrated medieval herbals because, for the first time in centuries, the scribe who produced it actually drew the plants from living examples, rather than reproducing the often flat and unlife-like illustrations of the Greeks and Arabics. For the first time in many centuries, the illustrations contained within the Tractatus were helpful, rather than misleading. Over five hundred entries fill the Tractatus, most of which relate to plants, but some fifty relate to animal and mineral substances. The information given about each plant follows tradition: an illustration, its place of origin, the distinguishing properties of the plant, when to gather and how to prepare the plant, its virtues and healing properties, and the form in which it could be used to treat various ailments (there might be up to forty or fifty such items for a single herb). For instance, the information given on the rose stated where it might be found, and how and when it could be gathered (preferably when the petals were open and red, and under no circumstance whatever should petals be gathered when they were colourless or blackened). If they were then dried properly in the sun they could be kept for three years. It was always dried roses used in medicinal preparations, as they were so easily ground into a powder. Roots, leaves and seeds were the most commonly used parts of a plant, the bark and flowers being used less often. Generally herbs were used dried and powdered, and they might be prescribed to be mixed with water or wine, or as a syrup (mixed with sugar, honey, wine, rosewater or vinegar). Powders could also be made into pills or suppositories by being mixed with animal fats or honey, or they might be applied as poultices in a looser concoction. Crushed and/or dried herbs could also be placed into linen sachets and wrapped about the painful area, or even ingested by being baked into cakes or tarts.

        Introduction à l'ostéopathie crânio-sacrée appliquée au cheval Pascal Evrard, Susanne E. Kaiser, Muriel Vaessen, Andrea Hadrovic, Andrea Janssen, Britta Mattern

      Oliver éditeur (Suisse) Corrigo Sc, 2002. 2002. Hardcover. Good. 27,4 x 19,8 x 2 cm. Le tissu et la main sont les deux acteurs principaux de la " communication diagnostique " entre l'ostéopathe et le cheval. Pascal Evrard, ostéopathe humain et équin, passionné par les chevaux depuis l'âge de quatre ans, le vérifie tous les jours. L'ostéopathie lui a permis d'établir un équilibre entre passion et travail. Ayant pris la même voie que son collègue le Dr Dominique Giniaux, Pascal Evrard répartit son temps entre les chevaux et les cavaliers qu'il soigne et les cours ou conférences auxquels il participe en Europe et outre Atlantique. En 1997, il organise en Allemagne la première structure de cours en ostéopathie équine et dirige maintenant l'International School of Equine Osteopathy (ISEO). Il a récemment organisé des cours pour les vétérinaires scandinaves et débutera au printemps 2003 un programme pour les vétérinaires américains de l'Est, en Floride. Il sera chargé de cours au Colorado States University dans le département de thérapie manuelle pour l'ostéopathie équine dès juillet 2003. Ce premier ouvrage sur la thérapie crânio-sacrée appliquée au cheval, se veut être une introduction à la fois simple et pratique sur l'approche douce de la thérapie du cheval. Il nous explique le fonctionnement et le mécanisme des os crâniens en relation avec le reste du corps et la façon de les rééquilibrer. Il ne remplace en rien la médecine vétérinaire : le traitement ostéopathique proposé est un outil supplémentaire. Traduit en anglais et en allemand, ce livre ouvrira un dialogue entre ostéopathes et vétérinaires intéressés par une approche globale du cheval. 2930019069 978-2930019062 Le tissu et la main sont les deux acteurs principaux de la " communication diagnostique " entre l'ostéopathe et le cheval.

        La Peinture américaine

      Gallimard - Paris 2002. 1 Volume/1. -- Parfait état -- Reliure éditeur cartonnée pleine toile noire sous jaquette illustrée . Format in-4°( 28,7 x 26 cm )( 1955 gr ). ------- 303 pages *********** '' Autant avouer que ce beau livre comble une lacune. De l'histoire de la peinture américaine, nous ne connaissons que peu de choses si ce n'est la période de l'expressionnisme abstrait avec Pollock et le pop art. Or, cet ouvrage démontre combien l'Amérique a toujours eu besoin de représentations. Dès le XVIIIe siècle, les premières peintures vantent la beauté des paysages mais participent aussi d'une idéologie encore en vigueur aujourd'hui : celle d'un pays neuf où tout est possible. Les chapitres, confiés à différents spécialistes, analysent un à un ces moments, ces périodes de l'histoire de l'art américain. Ainsi, les textes consacrés au XIXe siècle sont passionnants puisqu'ils démontrent comment s'est forgé le mythe du grand Ouest sauvage, don de Dieu pour les colons. Les essais consacrés à l'impressionnisme puis aux premières abstractions sont tout aussi instructifs. L'une des réussites de cet ouvrage réside également dans ses longues notices richement illustrées. En effet, pour chacun des artistes, les auteurs ont sélectionné plusieurs ?uvres contrairement à nombre d'ouvrages d'histoire de l'art ou le lecteur doit se contenter d'une simple petite vignette pour apprécier le travail du peintre. L'ensembles des images consacrées à Giorgia O'Keeffe, Charles Demuth, Charles Sheeler, Edward Hopper, Thomas Benton sont tout à fait convaincantes et permettent, entre autres, de comprendre visuellement la fascination de ces artistes pour les avant-gardes européennes des années 1920. Malheureusement, la fin de l'ouvrage passe sous silence la richesse de la peinture américaine des cinquante dernières années. Les années 70, 80 et 90 sont réduites à de courtes mentions. Des figures aussi importantes que Cy Twombly ou des courants comme l'art minimal sont totalement absents. C'est d'autant plus regrettable que c'est précisément durant cette période que l'art américain a produit ses plus grands maîtres. --Damien Sausset "" ************* [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Some light handling wear and a few unobtrusive creases to covers; a very presentable copy nonetheless. Extremely scarce, particularly signed.

"Unfolds like a great political drama, beginning in New York in 1961 and ending in the South during the mid-1960&#39;s marches. The ability to enter so sympathetically into what seems superficially an alien environment remains Bruce Davidson&#39;s sustained triumph. He becomes the friendly recorder of tenderness and tragedy" (Henry Geldzahler). An absolute "must-have" edition for Bruce Davidson collectors. <b><i> This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition, and it is very prominently and beautifully numbered and signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Bruce Davidson.

This edition is now highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 140 tritone plates, 1 original print. One of the greatest living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE DAVIDSON TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).

        ?A new modification of the cloud method of determining the elementary electrical charge and the most probable value of that charge," in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine, Volume XIX, Sixth Series, 1910. Pp. 209-228.

      Robert Millikan, in this, his famous oil drop experiment, found the value of the charge on the electron, providing the first definitive proof that electric charge is made up of elementary indivisible quantities, and that the charge is not a statistically averaged quantity. ?The experiment entailed balancing the downward gravitational force with the upward buoyant and electric forces on tiny charged droplets of oil suspended between two metal electrodes.... His experiment measured the force on tiny charged droplets of oil suspended against gravity between two metal electrodes. Knowing the electric field, the charge on the droplet was determined? (Wikipedia). Millikan arrived at a value for e that he considered accurate to within 2 percent. "This result provided the most persuasive evidence yet that electrons were fundamental particles of identical charge and mass (DSB). Not only had Millikan found the value of the charge on the electron, but he had provided convincing evidence that all electrical charge is some integer multiple of an elementary charge e, that the charge was always an integral multiple of an irreproducible value. In 2002, and writing about the most interesting experiments of all time, Physics World observed of Millikan?s work: ?the experiment can leave no-one in doubt that electrical charge is quantized and that modern physics is real, observable, and true. CONDITION & DETAILS: Full volume (includes papers by J. J. Thomson, Ernest Rutherford and others). Ex-libris with only an armorial plate on the front paste down and a stamp to the rear of the title page. Bound in half calf with a red morocco, gilt-lettered spine label. Minor edge wear and scuffing to the calf. Handsome, tightly bound volume. Bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.
