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.”

Glass and Metalware by Dorothea Hall (£9.50)Publisher: London: Bracken Books — 1992Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 1851709150]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper gently sunned at the spine. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs;

From the cover: “The range of collectable items in glass and metal is truly phenomenal. Both materials were originally used in purely functional forms; and both developed into media with which skilled craftsmen could create works of exquisite beauty.

Collectors are almost spoiled for choice. It is possible to specialize in a particular period, or on a particular maker; or to concentrate on one type of object. Expenditure need not be great; half the fun is in hunting out bargains or unexpected finds.

In this very popular series, Collecting for Pleasure GLASS AND METALWARE covers a particularly attractive range of 24 collectable categories, from essentials such as tableware and cutlery to highly covetable dressing table silver, art metalware, cut glass and art glass. In the process, it affords insights into many lifestyles, from the Georgian period through to the Art Nouveau movement.

Invaluable buying advice is also given — what to look for and what to avoid, how to check quality and makers’ marks, how to distinguish between originals and reproductions; and there are indispensable price guides for each category to aid the would-be purchaser.

This beautifully illustrated and informative book will be a delight to established collectors and to those new to the field of glass and metal collecting.”
