Описание: The first conflict to use iron-clad gunboats, metallic cartridges and submarines, the American Civil War also introduced such inventions as the telegraph and military balloons, utillized by the Signal Corps. This comprehensive reference work describes these and many other forms of arms and military equipment employed during the war, including pontoon bridges, percussion grenades, "freak guns", siege artillery, mines and torpedoes. Profusely illustrated with the author's own drawings, the text provides a fresh perspective on how military resources decided the outcome of not only battle - but the war as well. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Doubleday & Company, Garden City, New York, 1962.

Описание: The most important work of American artist and illustrator Lynd Ward, "Gods' Man" is a powerfully evocative novel, told entirely through woodcuts. Ward (1905 85), in employing the concept of the wordless pictorial narrative, acknowledged his predecessors the European artists Frans Masereel and Otto Nuckel. Released the week of the 1929 stock market crash, "Gods' Man" was the first of six woodcut novels that Ward produced over the next eight years. It presents the artist's struggles in a world characterized by both innocence and corruptions and can be considered a forerunner of the contemporary graphic novel, popularized by artists such as Daniel Clowes. Although best known for his "novels in woodcuts," Ward was also a successful illustrator of children's books. In 1953 he won the Caldecott Medal for "The Biggest Bear, " which he both wrote and illustrated. His illustrations also appeared in numerous books that received the Newbery Medal. Ward's final work was the acclaimed wordless novel "The Silver Pony" (1973). Until now, "Gods' Man" has only been widely available in high-priced original editions. This top-quality, low-cost republication of Ward's masterpiece will be welcomed by collectors of his work as well as by readers new to his achievement."
Описание: Widely considered the classic book in the field, George Cameron Stone's A Glossary of the Construction, Decoration and Use of Arms and Armor in All Countries and in All Times is an indispensable resource and reference tool for anyone interested in arms and armor. Originally published in 1934, it remains an essential guide to the field. To describe the worldwide range and variety of weaponry, Stone drew upon the more than 4,000 items in his private collection of Eastern arms and armor, as well as the European arms collection of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a variety of other sources. Since the author subsequently bequeathed his entire collection to the Metropolitan Museum, this volume serves as an abbreviated visual reference to that institution's Arms and Armor collection. By profession a metallurgist, the author focused on techniques of manufacture and workmanship to derive his method of codifying the typology of weapons, relying on an alphabetized dictionary format to avoid the confusions he found in a field without standardized nomenclature. This "glossary" format makes it easy for anyone to locate material on the astonishing variety of weapons covered. These include arquebuses, blunderbusses, flintlocks, wheel locks, matchlocks, and other antique guns; German armor; French rapiers; Roman short swords; Turkish crossbows; all the Japanese bladed weapons (katana, wakizashi, naginata, etc.); the East Asian kris in its countless permutations; and many more. Illustrated with 875 detailed figures, incorporating thousands of individual photographs and drawings, the book was written from the unique viewpoint of an expert who devoted a lifetime to the field. Hard to locate today (original editions are worth hundreds of dollars), Stone's Glossary represents a peerless resource for scholars, experts, collectors, students, hobbyists, and institutions -- any student of the long history and development of weapons and armor around the world.

"Dada is artistic free-thinking." -- Breton Man Ray (1890-1976), American photographer, painter, designer, sculptor, and filmmaker, arrived in Paris in 1921. Inspired by a unique artistic vision grounded in the deliberate irrationality of Dada and the incongruous vision of Surrealism, Ray created a gallery of striking photographs: unforgettable images that etch themselves into the mind and transform our perceptions of reality. This beautiful large-format volume reproduces on coated stock a rich selection of these works, created amid the intellectual and artistic ferment of the 20's and 30's. To achieve his remarkable effects, Ray experimented with various techniques: over and under exposure, shooting through different fabrics, superimposing images, and zeroing in on tiny details. In his words: "The removal of inculcated modes of presentation, resulting in apparent artificiality or strangeness ... is to be welcomed." To preserve the full dramatic impact of his ground-breaking work, Dover has carefully and painstakingly reproduced these photographs from a rare gravure edition. The photographs are divided into 5 groupings: Photos 1-24: general subjects (still lifes, rooms, landscapes, cityscapes, flowers) Photos 25-42: female figures, mainly nudes Photos 43-66: women's faces (including Gertrude Stein) Photos 67-84: celebrity portraits (Ray, Dali, Tzara, Sinclair Lewis, Joyce, Eluard, Breton, Derain, Braque, Matisse, Picasso, and others) Photos 85-104: rayographs, "cameraless" compositions created by resting objects on unexposed film Also included in this edition are acclamatory texts by Eluard, Breton, and Tzara in the original French with English translations; a German text by Rrose Selavy (pseudonymous) with English translation; an Introduction by Ray with French translation, and a portrait of Ray by Picasso. Today, Ray's individual photographs command high prices on the collector's market. Indeed, the original edition of this book sells for hundreds of dollars. The publication of this inexpensive Dover edition thus allows photographers, artists, designers, and students of art and photography an unparalleled opportunity to savor and study these iconoclastic masterpieces. Most of the photos are full page, or nearly so, and reveal the profoundly original vision of a man for whom the violation of convention was "far preferable to the monstrous habits condoned by etiquette and estheticism."

Описание: "Ravel: Man and Musician is the first book to set the composer's entire oeuvre in its proper perspective ... a staggeringly well documented opus ... it cannot be matched for the invaluable particulars it provides." -- Patrick J. Smith, Editor, High Fidelity/Musical America The music of Maurice Ravel is performed more today than that of any other French composer. His musical achievements as well as his life and times are brilliantly recreated in this masterly biography, originally published during Ravel's centenary year of 1975. Written by Arbie Orenstein, widely considered the world's foremost Ravel scholar, this book remains the standard biography -- detailed, alert to the historical milieu and cultural background of Ravel's music, rich in quotations drawn from his letters and filled with information gathered in the author's many interviews with the composer's friends. Mr. Orenstein provides an illuminating analysis of each of Ravel's works -- including several compositions, autographs, and sketches brought to light through the author's exhaustive research -- and a general discussion of Ravel's musical aesthetics and language. He includes as well 32 plates of illustrations and two invaluable appendixes: a complete catalogue of Ravel's works, and a discography of historical recordings made between 1912 and 1939. "Highly recommended ... a worthy centenary tribute to both Ravel and his musical legacy." -- Choice "If the concert-goer is looking for the one book on Ravel that would serve him best, this is probably it." -- Intermezzo
