Title  The Price Guide to ANTIQUE SILVER by Peter Waldron in hardcover  365 pages of vintage inspiration

Description

The Price Guide to ANTIQUE SILVER by Peter Waldron in hardcover  365 pages of vintage inspiration with clear plastic jacket.

 

Antique silver is one of the oldest and best loved collecting subjects. At the top end of the quality scale, the work that went into making a fine piece was of an extremely high order. However, the majority of silver was used in the middle levels of British society and the collector has clearly to understand the varying qualities of production that he encounters if he is to buy well and avoid inferior pieces. In addition, the collector must understand what can happen to a piece during its lifetime. On the one hand it can acquire a supurb patination, and on the other, it can be dented, bent, broken, marked or even altered to enhance its apparent quality. The consideration of all these practical factors and many others is covered in this second edition. The pieces are arranged chronologically within each main subject heading so that developing styles may be clearly understood, while the 1100 photographs have been specially selected by the author.

LA VIE EN ROSE Living in France by Suzanne Lowry in hardcover 192 pages of inspiration

 

France still sets the standard for beautiful living.

Title  THE IRISH HOME  by IANTHE RUTHVEN in hardback  176 pages beautifully photographed Georgian interiors



Description

THE IRISH HOME  by IANTHE RUTHVEN in hardback with original dust jacket.

 Irish homes fill these pages in elegant color photographs that evoke the romance and strength, the eccentricity and grace, of Ireland's built heritage.

From the unique Georgian style of the 18th century to the delicate Gothic that followed, from the delightful "cult of dilapidation" perfected by the Irish to the current triumphs of historic preservation-here are castles, houses grand and modest, country cottages, and fabled ruins. Visit Lexilip castle, built by the Normans around 1200; the two-room cottage built in Ulster by the ancestors of American financial tycoon Thomas Mellon; and the ghostly crumbling ruins of Woodstock House in County Kilkeny and Mount Shannon in County Limerick.

Each chapter presents a mood or perspective on Ireland's past, with photographs of architectural details, comfortable interiors, antiques, and landscapes. The text reveals the fascinating history of Irish homes, and stories of the characters who fill our daydreams of gentle country life.

Title  GREAT HOUSES OF EUROPE From the Archives of Country Life by Marcus BINNEY in hardback

Description

GREAT HOUSES OF EUROPE From the Archives of Country Life by Marcus BINNEY in hardback original dust jacket.

 Great Houses of Europe emerges from a quest to find the best houses on the continent. Linked by the survival of their magnificent exteriors and interiors—spectacular plasterwork; original wallpapers, fabrics, and furniture; and intact art collections—these 25 houses include feudal castles, royal summer palaces, hunting lodges, and pleasure pavilions, often set in equally fine gardens and parks. This large–format volume presents 200 masterful images by Country Life photographer Alex Starkey, while Marcus Binney’s narrative offers revealing insights into the history of these remarkable houses. From the dramatic Swedish post–Renaissance Castle Skokloster—with arguably the finest interiors in Europe—to the extraordinary Villa Kerylos on the French Riviera and the Venetian Palazzo Abruzzi, Great Houses of Europe offers a vivid portrait of a rich architectural heritage.

Marcus Binney is the Architecture Correspondent of the London Times; Alex Starkey, a staff photographer at Country Life for 35 years, is widely acknowledged as a master of natural–light photography.

SALVATOR ROSA his life and Times by Jonathan Scott excellent condition Yale University in hardback with original dust jacket. 260 pages .

 Salvator Rosa painted some of the most memorable landscapes in a century that excelled in depicting the countryside. His threatening rocks and storm-shattered pines epitomise the Sublime, in contrast to Claude's golden sunsets. However, in his own eyes his history paintings, which include thrilling scenes of violence and tragedy, were more important. His wayward temperament and furious insistence on the independence of the artist made relations with patrons difficult, but, despite this, he made an international reputation for himself.

 The charming garden follies of pre-Revolutionary France, spanning 150 years and the reigns of four monarchs, are today known almost exclusively to scholars. Imaginative creations of France's greatest architects and eloquent symbols of their era, they were built for the pleasure of the Bourbon kings and their courts. Many of these buildings have been destroyed or severely altered and the only records that survive are the drawings, engravings, architectural plans, and, more rarely, paintings of the period.

The villa provides a focus for examining not only the relationship between urban and rural life, but also that between building and the environment, and between the effects of social, economic and political change on architectural design.

In Italy lies a beautiful Roman ruin, a breathtaking Renaissance church , or a timeless village view. But it is not just the buildings that are beautiful: Italy's landscapes-high mountains, rolling hills and valleys, and sun-washed coasts have inspired generations of writers and painters. Italians seem to have an innate feeling for color and design, and when you study their countryside it comes as no surprise that so many of the world's greatest artist,poets,and musicians came from or were drawn to this stunning land.

Filled with wonderful photography, Italy: History and Landscape explores the country by regions. Each section gives a flavor of the area,its countryside and historic buildings,from the snowy Alps of the North,through the magical atmosphere of Venice and the Veneto, romantic Tuscany,and central Italy-Perugia and Umbria, Lazio and Emilia Romagna-to the hot Mediterranean island of Sicily and Sardinia

 To many of us, the great gardens of Italy seem like paradise on earth. But how much do we know of their history, and the people who created them? In this ravishing book, illustrated with contemporary paintings, drawings and prints as well as photographs of the gardens today, Helena Attlee tells their story. She starts with Petrarch – still looking to medieval chronicles for advice on how and when to plant – and goes on to the Renaissance and those first gardens to emerge from architects' plans. Then she describes the great gardens of the Medici; the first botanic gardens; the weird Mannerist gardens and their grottoes followed by the Baroque splendour of Isola Bella and the Villa Aldobrandini; the Neoclassical and Picturesque gardens of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; and how, in the twentieth century, expatriates with money to lavish on their villas and gardens brought new delights.

Title   Set of four engraving Roman Emperor medallions in gilt frames after Jegher-Goltzius woodcuts

 


Description

Set of four engraving Antique Roman Emperor coins in gilt frames after Jegher-Goltzius woodcuts of the 17th century. 

Mounted under glass and in gilt frame.

These are reprints of the original chiarusco woodcut (with brown tone) combined with a line etching, on a verge type hand laid paper.

The original print originates from an edition of Hubert Goltzius' 'Icones Imperatorum Romanorum' (this edition is not dated). The first edition of this work was published between 1557 and 1560 in Antwerp by J. Coppens van Diest. Given the appearance of eg. Rudolph II in this edition, some portraits were added after Goltzius' time in later editions. Artists and Engravers: Hubert Goltzius is often credited with etching the portraits. Christoffel Jegher made the woodcuts. Christoffel Jegher (1596-1652/3) was a wood engraver born at Antwerp. He worked for Rubens from 1627 and is probably a pupil of Christoffel van Sichem. Hubert Goltzius (1526-1583) was a Dutch humanist author, antiquarian and numismatist. He was born in Venlo, and studied under Lambert Lombard in Liege and later in Antwerp. He settled in Bruges in 1558 and starts publishing several works on ancient numismatics.
