British Battleships of World War Two: The Development and Technical History of the Royal Navy's Battleships and Battlecruisers from 1911 to 1946 by Alan Raven & John Roberts (£192.00)Publisher: London: Arms & Armour Press — 1976Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0853681414]Condition: Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Leans. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Jacket illustration: Howe and Queen Elizabeth at sea in December 1944 by John Roberts. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates [4]; Diagrams; Tables; Fold-Out Maps;

From the cover: “This large and lavishly-illustrated volume presents a comprehensive account of the design and construction of the British battleships that served in the Second World War — from the Queen Elizabeth class to Vanguard. Much of the information contained in this book, which is the result of exhaustive research conducted over many years, is published for the first time, for only recently have official documents of the period been made available to the public. British Battleships of World War Two is therefore unique in making available the full story of the design and construction of every battleship and battlecruiser class of the period as first built, together with all details of the various refits and reconstructions that each vessel underwent during its service life. The contents also include a comprehensive review of developments in weapons, gunnery, fire-control, radar, protection and propulsion, taking in every aspect of battleship design and usage; and there are sections devoted to the actions involving British battleships during the Second World War, and to comparisons between the British battleships and their counterparts in other navies.

Complementing the text are some three hundred photographs, which in themselves constitute a history of the vessels. These are supplemented by numerous superb specially-drawn sets of plans and elevations — fully detailed and based on the official builders’ plans — comprising over three hundred individual drawings. They depict the ships not only in their “as built” configurations, but show also the many modifications and alterations carried out during their careers. British Battleships of World War Two is a magnificent volume that takes its place as the definitive work of reference on the subject.”

Minoan And Mycenaean Art by Reynold Higgins (£56.50)Publisher: Thames & Hudson — 1967Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9780500181843]Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Upper wrapper slighty curled. Pages lightly age-tanned.Description: 241 Plates, 54 in Colour. From the cover: “ONE OF THE GREAT EVENTS in the history of archaeology was the discovery by Heinrich Schliemann, in 1876, of the treasures in the citadel of Mycenae — the home of the legendary King Agamemnon. Equally momentous was the series of excavations carried out by Sir Arthur Evans, from 1900, at the palace of King Minos at Knossos. Ever since, men have been stirred by the mysterious frescoes at Knossos; by the palace of Phaistos; by the gold funeral masks from Mycenae; and by countless other beautiful artefacts. All these are discussed and illustrated in this book, together with the remarkable recent finds at Zakro, many of which have not previously been described in English. The world which Schliemann and Evans unearthed was in no sense a primitive culture. More than 1000 years before Pericles, a sophisticated court flourished at Knossos, until disaster struck and leadership passed to the war-lords of Mycenae, the forefathers of Agamemnon and of the heroes of the Trojan war.

In this comprehensive survey, Dr Reynold Higgins discusses the art and architecture not only of the important Cretan and Mycenaean cultures, but also of the Cycladic Islands. The period covered begins shortly after 3000 BC, and ends with the Dorian invasions of mainland Greece. Dr Higgins’ text, and the plates which accompany it, reveal not only the astonishing profusion, variety and quality of the art created during this period, but also much fascinating detail concerning the methods of manufacture employed by these wonderful ancient craftsmen.”

Before the Ironclad: Ship Design, Propulsion and Armament in the Royal Navy, 1815-60 by Edited by David K. [Keith] Brown (£50.00)Publisher: London: Conway Maritime Press — 1990Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0851775322]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper sunned at the spine. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [14]; Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Diagrams; Maps; Tables; Plans;

From the cover: “In the massive revolution that affected warship design between Waterloo and Warrior, the Royal Navy is often depicted as fiercely resisting every change until it was almost too late, but this new history of the transition from sail to steam challenges these old assumptions.

Beginning with the structural improvements of Robert Seppings, the book traces the gradual introduction of more scientific methods and the advent of steam and the paddle fighting ship, iron hulls and screw propulsion. It analyses the performance of the fleet in the Crimean War, and concludes with the design of Warrior, the first iron-built, sea-going capital ship in the world.

In passing, the author reveals an organisation that was well aware of new technology, carefully evaluating its potential use, and occasionally (as with its enthusiastic espousal of iron hulls) moving too quickly for its own good. Based on much new research, and a lifetime’s understanding of the technical problems, Before the Ironclad is a well-balanced and coherent account of general developments, as well as an in-depth study of the ships themselves.”

Abandoned Mansions of Ireland by Tarquin Blake (£42.00)Publisher: Wilton: The Collins Press — 2012Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 9781848890619]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: 3rd printing. [First Published: 2010] Illustrated by way of: Glossary; Vignette to the title page; Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “From the mid-eighteenth century Irish country houses flourished. Landowners generated easy income leasing land to tenants. As their wealth increased, so did the size of their country mansions. However, the Great Famine took its toll. Penniless tenants could not pay rent and estate owners found themselves in a precarious financial position. Later land reforms saw land ownership transferred directly to farmers. The houses, stripped of their land and income, fell into decline. During the War of Independence the mansions became an IRA target and many were deliberately burnt. For others, the increasing expense of maintenance made them unviable. Gradually, abandoned and forgotten, they sank into decay.

In 2008 Tarquin Blake found his first abandoned ‘Big House’ and began exploring the lost architecture of Ireland. Here he documents what is left of fifty mansion houses. Included are Mountpelier Lodge (the Dublin Hellfire Club), the birthplaces of Daniel O’Connell and the Duke of Wellington, and the one-time homes of Grace O’Malley and the Smithwicks of Kilkenny (brewers).

Brief histories of the houses and associated folklore tell of troubled times and private hardships. The inclusion of details from the 1911 Census offers a glimpse of the closing days of the aristocracy and their mansions. For example, the census records the owner of Lisheen House in Sligo as a Mr Owen Phibbs; occupation: Landed Proprietor; age 70. Mr Phibbs lived in the twenty-five rooms of his magnificent mansion house accompanied by a staff of five: a cook, parlour maid, housemaid, kitchen maid and laundress. By 1950 Lisheen House would be utterly abandoned. Today the fine carved stonework has almost disappeared under ivy.

The histories, together with beautiful photographs of the haunting ruins, explore a part of our heritage that is crumbling away before our eyes.”

From the cover: “New York City’s Pennsylvania Station, conceived as a symbol of the wealth and power of America’s mightiest railroad, became a national monument during its short life. This history of the famous depot is not only a story of the superb achievement of architect Charles Pollen Me Kin, but also a tale of human struggle and of a complex and dangerous engineering triumph. Lorraine Diehl’s lively, authoritative text, together with vintage photographs and drawings, recaptures the classical grandeur of the building and the drama and turbulence of its times — from the sunny pre — World War I era through 1963, when it was destroyed in the appalling act of civic vandalism that spurred the modern Landmark Preservation movement.”

At Home: A Century of New Zealand Design by Douglas Lloyd Jenkins (£32.00)Publisher: Godwit (Aukland: New Zealand) — 2004Binding: Paperback Condition: Very Good. Small scuff to the upper wrapper at the join otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams; Plans;

From the cover: “At Home: A Century of New Zealand Design is a personal journey by leading architecture and design writer Douglas Lloyd Jenkins, in pursuit of a distinctive New Zealand sense of style, is the story of those New Zealanders who put the creation of a contemporary living environment first, not only as an expression of individualism but as their contribution to the development of a recognisable New Zealand culture.

Taking the first decade of the twentieth century as its starting point, joins the story of the New Zealand house just at the point when its inhabitants began to ask whether a uniquely local expression might be possible. It charts the way in which imported movements, fashions and styles in twentieth-century architecture and design were adopted — or adapted — by New Zealanders to create personalised home environments, whether international in style or an attempt at something distinctively local.

In At Home: A Century of New Zealand Design, Douglas Lloyd Jenkins draws on his depth of knowledge to tell, in an accessible style, an alternative history of New Zealand, in which style and fashion have been key in building local culture. He sheds light on many lesser-known architects and designers, as well as those more widely recognised, challenging the notion of the architect as the sole creative force behind the progressive house.”

People and Places: Country House Donors and The National Trust by James Lees-Milne (£32.00)Publisher: London: John Murray — 1993Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0719551455]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: A Later Printing. Contains: Black & white photographs; Black & white drawings;

From the cover: “In 1936, James Lees-Milne became Country Houses secretary of the infant National Trust. Already fired with compassion for ancient architecture, ‘so vulnerable and transient’, he could now pursue what amounted to a vocation.

His arrival increased the Trust’s permanent staff to four, a close-knit community, somewhat cramped in a stuffy office facing a shunting yard in Victoria. The Trust at that time owned only two country houses, one ruined and the other empty, but changing conditions, accelerated by the War, now brought a stream of offers. James Lees-Milne’s chief task was to visit, as ambassador and aesthetic assessor, would-be donors in their domains. So young a man arriving often on a bicycle must have astonished those patrician figures, who themselves might be survivors from the Victorian age. Nor was his task easy: it involved legal thickets, intricate family squabbles, dilemmas of artistic judgement, and owners who, in their fastnesses, might have grown very eccentric indeed.

In this book James Lees-Milne describes fourteen houses, including Knole, Blickling, Stourhead and Cotehele. He brings the buildings, their owners and pasts brilliantly to life and tells the sometimes cliffhanging tales of their transfer to the Trust. Readers of the celebrated diaries will not be surprised by the wit and charm in these pages. But everyone, whether the author’s devoted following or visitors to the Trust’s great houses, will be enchanted by the extraordinary, amusing and touching picture they will find here of an England now lost.”

Medieval Sculpture by Roberto Salvini (£31.00)Publisher: London: Michael Joseph — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0718105788]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Top edge dye has run slightly on the first blank and pastedown. Slight and light spotting to the start and finish. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Jacket illustration: Gothic Pieta from Seeon, Bavaria c. 1420-30. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Plates;

From the cover: “The history of medieval sculpture in Western Europe is often described as a gradual rediscovery of technical skill and naturalism. In this volume, the author approaches his subject from a different angle, tracing the development of sculpture against a background of changing political, social and religious structures and in relation to the growth of written and spoken languages. He demonstrates that a new kind of sculpture, a humble, popular style which developed from Roman provincial sculpture, appeared and existed side by side with courtly styles which preserved or rediscovered much of the dignity of Late Classical art.

As feudalism declined, this dichotomy between the popular and courtly disappeared. The first literary Romance languages took root and regional Romanesque styles developed, identified with religious architecture and sculptors like Gislebertus, Wiligelmo and Antelami.

In the Gothic age, national idioms developed in the figurative arts as France, England and Germany became unified monarchical states. In Italy a national consciousness, on a cultural level, evolved; with it are associated the sculptors of the Pisano family and the cathedrals they decorated in Pisa and Siena.

As the Renaissance flowered in Italy and southern France, the Late Gothic style continued in the north, especially in Germany, where the work of Riemen-schneider and Veil Stoss is outstanding in this period.

This volume, spanning over 1,000 years from the fifth to the fifteenth century, contains a remarkable selection of illustrations which follow closely the historical development and represent the finest examples of Medieval art.”

Ornamental Design 1850 Ornementale Kunst 1850 Motifs Ornementaux 1850 Design Ornementale 1850 El Diseno Ornamental 1850 by Pepin Van Roojen (£30.00)Publisher: Amsterdam: The Pepin Press — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9054960302]Condition: Very Good. Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers with a small sticker ghost to the upper panel. Text block has a faint ripple throughout although the plates are well preserved. A good copy. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Plates;

From the cover: “The material presented in this book was originally published in the early 1870s, and representative of styles prevalent in the preceding decades. This was a period during which ornamental design became increasingly widespread, but, ironically, not a time during which many new designs were developed. Instead, the past was raided by architects, artists and craftsmen, and shapes and patterns that at one point in history may have had revered meanings, were copied, altered, combined or split to pieces, without much consideration for their original purpose. However, the result is a wealth of beautiful design. Practically every ornamental style known to early and mid-nineteenth century Europeans, from ancient Egyptian to Baroque, is represented here. The main items illustrated are ceramics, metalware, glass objects, furniture, carpets and other textiles, either complete, or in detail. There are also some architectural elements and examples of interior decoration.

Design inspired by ancient ancient Egypt displays the presence of stylised lotus flowers, motifs reminiscent of hieroglyphs, zig-zag patterns and spiralling constructions. Many examples of Greek ornamental design were copied from friezes on which mythical events were recorded. Very popular Greek ornaments are fret, spiral and bead borders, variations on the echinus (egg and dart), the acanthus and rosettes and palmettes. A principal characteristic of Greek design is the use of columns in architecture and interiors, topped with elaborate capitals. Very simply put, Roman adornment seems to have been largely an exuberant extension of the Greek visual vocabulary, with Etruscan elements added. Some of the mosaic designs in this book were clearly based on Pompeian originals. The so-called Byzantine school is a blending of styles: Greek, Roman, and early Christian ornaments, combined with elements from Persia and Syria. Byzantine ornamentation was one of the sources of Islamic decorative style, with elaborate geometrical patterns due to the interdiction of representations of living things. Illustrative of the Moorish style are the inter-woven formations based on Arabic calligraphy. The Gothic period contributed, among others, variations on the clover leaf: trefoils, quatrefoils and cinquefoils, but also the fleur-de-lis and the Tudor rose. During the Renaissance, the classical Greco-Roman models were rejuvenated and complemented with elements from the Near Orient. Especially in architecture, classical orders were followed. In ornamental design, freer patterns became fashionable. Of course, the Renaissance motifs used during the period covered by this book, were, again, often combined with other styles.”

Back: The village of Penne, built beneath a rock, is one of the most breathtaking sights in the gorge of Aveyron. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Plans;

From the cover: “Here is a visual celebration of France’s most beautiful and perfectly preserved medieval villages. Spectacular colour photographs capture their regional ambience and special character, while detailed texts explain the foundation of each village and the growth of the community.

The demands of defence and trade intertwine, from the walled bastides of the Southwest with their great market squares, to the hill-top refuges of the Mediterranean, precariously perched and turned towards the sun. Each village is a harmonious marriage of architecture and landscape: the ancient timber buildings of Saint-Veran are surrounded by alpine forests; the startlingly rosy village of Collanges-la-Rouge is named after the local red sandstone of which it is made. Here too are Mont-Saint-Michel, Vezelay and Conques, where settlements cluster around majestic monuments from the Middle Ages.

Complementing the selection of villages is a list of nearby hotels and restaurants. An extended list of protected villages will prove a useful guide for travellers to France and for all those with an interest in the preservation of architectural heritage.”

India by Antonio Monroy (£27.00)Publisher: Orbis — 1985Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0856139467]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated chafing to the dust wrapper. Edges of the text block lightly tanned. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “India, the world’s second most populous country, possesses an extraordinary diversity of peoples whose complex religious, cultural and linguistic divisions are lost in antiquity. But this huge subcontinent is distinguished by an intense religious consciousness which permeates the whole of life. Every aspect of Indian culture is rooted in powerful religious and philosophical ideas — whether Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jain, Muslim or Sikh; or the product of one of the many tribal and traditional cults still prevalent in village life.

This volume presents India as it is today, and discusses the history and geography of the land as it has influenced the development of myth, religion and language. India is a conjunction of contradictory elements where modern society is still influenced by the pressures of tribe and caste; where her art and architecture combine subtle metaphysics with an extraordinary sensuality and raw physical energy. This book celebrates, in words and pictures, the vigour and abundance of an age-old culture where traditions have been re-animated by the impetus of folklore, legend and imagination.

The brilliant colour photography of Antonio Martinelli and Roberto Meazza captures the events, places, and sensations of everyday India with sensitivity and sympathy. Antonio Monroy, who knows India and its culture well, has provided a text which describes and explains in detail the qualities which make India, its history, religion, society, architecture, even its cinema, unique amongst the world’s cultures. The result is a magnificent study of the subcontinent, both past and present.”

From the cover: “London is swinging again. The latest design trends, the best musicals, the most innovative plays and films are born in the capital of “Cool Britannia”. What catches on in Notting Hill, Soho and Hoxton now influences taste as far away as the North Cape and Tierra del Fuego. At the same time, the city on the Thames, one of the most cosmopolitan on the planet, is home to people from every corner of the world and has assimilated many of their traditions and tastes. With over 300 pages of rich colour photographs, “London Interiors” takes an intimate look at more than 40 private residences, among others the Indian-inspired hideaway of musician Talvin Singh and an amusing houseboat moored in Kew. From a 19305 penthouse at Highpoint Two, landmark of British Modernism, via the eccentric home of a “Royalist” living among Lady Di memorabilia to a loft crammed with “sexy kitsch”, the tenth volume of the successful Interiors series is a window on the private worlds of a handful of Londoners whose homes reflect the city in all its spirited diversity.”

From the cover: “Architect George Howe believed there were three pioneers of American architecture: Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, and William L. Price. While Wright and Sullivan are still regarded as central figures in the history of American architecture, Price awaits rediscovery.

Price, a disciple of Frank Furness who practiced in Philadelphia from 1883 to 1916, established the character of two of the nation’s greatest resorts, Atlantic City and Miami, thus shaping the architecture of the Roaring Twenties. Although his biggest and best-known projects, the Art Deco Traymore Hotel in Atlantic City and the Chicago Freight Terminal, were both destroyed, his Arts and Crafts Utopian community in Rose Valley, Pennsylvania and his Garden City community in Arden, Delaware survive to attest to the vigour of his ideas and the leadership he exerted.

Price left a legacy of exquisite houses, railroad stations, and commercial structures that were widely emulated and recall the best works of Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene & Greene. In addition, Price was an accomplished writer and furniture designer whose work was regularly featured in Gustav Stickley’s The Craftsman.

Price’s role in shaping American architecture is uncovered in this lavishly illustrated volume, which documents the architect’s complete works — including over 350 hotels, houses, and pieces of furniture — bringing to light this unknown American master.”

Angkor by Claude Jacques in collaboration with Reme Dumont (£24.00)Publisher: Cologne: Konemann — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 3829005040]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Glossary; Black & White Photographs; Chronological Tables; Colour Photographs; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “Since the rediscovery of the lost city of Angkor deep in the jungles of Cambodia in 1860s, it has been seen as one of those magical places that all travelers dream of visiting one day. A vast site, comprising temples, palaces, reservoirs and canals, it was the spiritual and political heart of the once-mighty Khmer kingdom. It is the remarkable story of this city that Claude Jacques, a celebrated authority on ancient Cambodia, retells in this elegant and lavishly illustrated book.

During the turbulent history of Angkor (from the 9th to the 16th century AD) one “king-of-kings” succeeded another against a backdrop of wars and revolts… and yet they managed to conceive and build monumental architectural projects of great daring and imagination.

Drawing upon a range of recent discoveries, and on the results of his own extensive research in Cambodia, Claude Jacques helps to transform our understanding not only of Angkor itself, but also of the many isolated, often ravishingly beautiful Khmer temples long ago abandoned to the jungle. He clearly sets out the religious, political, and cultural factors that shaped the evolution of Angkor, and also explains what we can learn — through their literature and inscriptions, their sumptuous temples, and their ingenious system of reservoirs, canals and roads — about the Khmer themselves and their long-neglected civilization, one of the greatest Southeast Asia has seen.

Over 150 photographs by Luc lonesco and Guy Nafilyan and numerous detailed plans of the great temples help to make this an outstanding book.”

From the cover: “Sustainable building has commonly been seen as separate from mainstream architecture and has been accorded the status of worthy but dull design. Adopting the term bioclimatic in preference to green to describe buildings which are inspired by nature and have a clear strategy for minimizing environmental depredation, this book seeks to revise this judgement. Introductory chapters trace the history of bioclimatic design in architecture, exploring the relationship between architecture and the natural environment.

An examination of three projects currently under construction points to future directions in bioclimatic architecture. The contemporary projects featured in the main section of the book are diverse — from office buildings which flaunt their measures for energy conservation in the form of external solar shading, wind towers, glazed atria and photovoltaic modules, to a church built from tubes of recycled paper and a museum constructed in timber and inserted in a woodland setting. Architects whose work is featured include Tadao Ando, Shigeru Ban, Edward Cullinan, Foster and Partners, Herzog and Partners, Glenn Murcutt and Arata Isozaki.”

Renaissance Architecture in Venice 1450-1540 by Ralph Lieberman (£24.00)Publisher: Frederick Muller — 1982Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0584950349]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Lower panel a little tanned. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank alongside a small area of spotting. Text complete, clean and tight otherwise. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs [109]; Colour Photographs [16]; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “Venice has long been hymned as the most beautiful city in the world: a fantastic urban complex delicately and evocatively built in the midst of a lagoon, her main thoroughfares forming an aqueous network plied by gondolas and barges. One of the world’s first republics, for centuries Venice wielded awesome power and imposed her symbol, the Lion of St Mark, throughout the Mediterranean. And because she sat enthroned at the major junction between the Byzantine East and the Latin West, between the Gothic North and Italy, still rooted in her Classical past, her art and architecture reflected an extraordinary spectrum of influences, traditions and concepts.

This handsomely illustrated book surveys the ninety years between 1450 and 1540, which saw the transformation of Venetian architecture from florid late Gothic to the first examples of the High Renaissance style. These were the decades in which some of the city’s most famous and magnificent structures were built, including the churches of San Zaccaria and Santa Maria dei Miracoli, the Scala dei Giganti in the courtyard of the Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower and the Libreria Marciana, and the Scuola San Rocco. It was during this period, too, that the Piazza San Marco and the Piazzetta were dramatically transformed.

The author demonstrates that the architecture of this period was dominated by an ever-changing search for a unique and idiomatic style that would unite two of Venice’s local traditions, the Byzantine and the Gothic, as well as the influences of ancient Rome and the new concepts that were flowering in Florence and Rome. By displaying the rich and often bewildering variety of the buildings, this book reveals that the Early Renaissance in Venetian architecture may be understood as an attitude rather than as a specific style. Lieberman finally urges that the book should be an aid to looking at the buildings in Venice, not a substitute for it. The book is sufficient in itself, but its beautiful pictures and wealth of information compel one to experience more closely this startling period of architecture in Venice.”

From the cover: “For us, said a leading Japanese businessman, Budo, Noh theatre, Kabuki are nourishment, for our soul is basically very ancient. This is why we can be modern or ultra-modern without losing our roots. Nothing in Japan is separate: the light flavour of Sake (rice wine), the taste of Sushi (raw fish), the respect that we pay to our traditions, the veneration we bear to our emperor, all these only make up one Whole. The difference between us and the West is that we have kept a centre, or what you call a soul. The centre is also the kernel. Without it, the fruit withers and dies. This book, created by Nebojsa Bato Tomasevic, is the latest publication in a distinguished series. Past titles include China, Tibet and India. Yugoslav by birth, internationalist by conviction, Tomasevic has travelled extensively in Japan speaking to representative figures in all spheres of activity. Employing French scholars, Japanese, English, Italian and Yugoslav photographers, Japanese expertise and his own personal experience, Tomasevic has assembled an informative and exciting report on this remarkable country. This book is indeed a product of international co-operation at its most effective.”

The Gothic Enterprise: A Guide to Understanding the Medieval Cathedral by Robert A Scott (£22.00)Publisher: Berkeley, Los Angeles & London: University of California Press — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0520231775]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Previous owners' gift inscription to the first blank. Description: Contains: Black & white photographs; Diagrams; Maps; Plans;

From the cover: “The great Gothic cathedrals of Europe are among the most astonishing achievements of Western culture. Evoking feelings of awe and humility, they make us want to understand what inspired the people who had the audacity to build them. This engrossing book surveys an era that has fired the historical imagination for centuries. In it Robert A. Scott explores why medieval people built Gothic cathedrals, how they built them, what conception of the divine lay behind their creation, and how religious and secular leaders used cathedrals for social and political purposes. As a traveler’s companion or a rich source of knowledge for the armchair enthusiast, The Gothic Enterprise helps us understand how ordinary people managed such tremendous feats of physical and creative energy at a time when technology was rudimentary, famine and disease were rampant, the climate was often harsh, and communal life was unstable and incessantly violent.

While most books about Gothic cathedrals focus on a particular building or on the cathedrals of a specific region, The Gothic Enterprise considers the idea of the cathedral as a humanly created space. Scott discusses why an impoverished people would commit so many social and personal resources to building something so physically stupendous and what this says about their ideas of the sacred, especially the vital role they ascribed to the divine as a protector against the dangers of everyday life.

Scott’s narrative offers a wealth of fascinating details concerning daily life during medieval times. The author describes the difficulties master-builders faced in scheduling construction that wouldn’t be completed during their own lifetimes, how they managed without adequate numeric systems or paper on which to make detailed drawings, and how climate, natural disasters, wars, variations in the hours of daylight throughout the year, and the celebration of holy days affected the pace”
