Praha by E. D Blodgett( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prompted by renowned poet E.D. Blodgett's deep love for and intimate experience of Prague, Praha is a poetic homage to the legendary city's vital spirit. As they build on one another, the poems in the collection lift the reader over the threshold of purely mythic understanding and into the heart of one of Europe's loveliest and most venerable cities. Each poem is accompanied by a translation into Czech, encouraging even those who do not know the language to immerse themselves in its sound. Superbly complemented by the mysteriously eloquent paintings of Czech artist Robert Kessner, Praha offers the moods of Prague in its many seasons and in all its magic
Czechs, Germans, Jews? : national identity and the Jews of Bohemia by Kateřina Čapková( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenon of national identities, always a key issue in the modern history of Bohemian Jewry, was particularly complex because of the marginal differences that existed between the available choices. Considerable overlap was evident in the programs of the various national movements and it was possible to change one's national identity or even to opt for more than one such identity without necessarily experiencing any far-reaching consequences in everyday life. Based on many hitherto unknown archival sources from the Czech Republic, Israel and Austria, the author's research reveals the inner dynamic of each of the national movements and maps out the three most important constructions of national identity within Bohemian Jewry--the German-Jewish, the Czech-Jewish and the Zionist. This book provides a needed framework for understanding the rich history of German- and Czech-Jewish politics and culture in Bohemia and is a notable contribution to the historiography of Bohemian, Czechoslovak and central European Jewry.--Publisher description

Prague in the reign of Rudolph II by Eliška Fučíková( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prague in the reign of Rudolph II takes readers back to the days of the Habsburg Emperor Rudolph II (1576-1611), when Prague became the metropolis of the Holy Roman Empire, and when the imperial court was a much sought-after milieu for scholars and artists, as well as magicians and adventurers. As the author notes, almost anyone of importance from inside -- and even outside -- the empire had to spend some time in Prague if they wanted to make their name. Internationally renowned expert on Rudolphine art Eliška Fučíková provides the reader with an engaging and informative stroll through Rudolphine Prague, which to this day remains full of mystery and legend, and includes a look at the famous imperial collection housed within Prague Castle. Her lively and authoritative account is accompanied by over a hundred color plates of buildings and historic monuments dating from the late Renaissance, together with maps and other graphic documentation, an index of locations with a map of Rudolphine monuments, and an overview of prominent figures. A follow-up to Karolinum's earlier Art-Nouveau Prague, and the first title in their new Prague series, Prague in the Reign of Rudolph II is sure to be prized by art lovers and adventurers alike
Renaissance Prague by Eliška Fučíková( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of the fifteenth century, when the Jagiellons and first Habsburg rulers sat on Prague's throne, the character of the city's municipalities began to transition from medieval to Renaissance. In 'Renaissance Prague', historian Eliska Fucikova paints a vivid picture of the Bohemian capital during this time of sweeping change.0As Fucikova reveals, this period saw the evolution of new architectural motifs across the city. In particular, there was a distinct transformation of Prague Castle, including the construction of well-known features such as the Ball Game Hall and Queen Anne's Summer Palace. Featuring a concise historical overview and a guide to prominent figures of the time, as well as a variety of illustrations-from artwork to archival images, contemporary photographs, and maps - Fucikova's book is a beautiful, enlightening tour through the Renaissance metropolis of the Bohemian Kingdom.0Translated from Czech by Derek Paton

Prague, the city and its river by Kateřina Bečková( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its birth as a city, Prague's appearance, character, and life have been shaped by the River Vltava. The flow of the river enabled the settlement of the Prague basin, the creation of the capital of the Bohemian Kingdom, and, later, the Czech state. In the course of their joint history, the city has gradually tamed the river, and as Prague has changed, so too has its river. This exquisitely illustrated book celebrates both the historical and living bond between Prague and the Vltava. After first exploring the river's major transformations most radically those of the nineteenth century, when the river banks became riverside roads, centers of social life, and elegant promenades all overhung with architecturally imposing grand houses Katerina Beckova takes readers on a stroll, in photographs, through the contemporary city. She tells the stories of its flour mills, bridges, islands, embankments, monuments, and community spaces, linking unique, riverside panoramic views of the town with fascinating insight into the evolution of Prague's everyday life over time. Also including historical and documentary illustrations, maps, and lists of key figures, locations, and landmarks (both today's and yesterday's) with the various names they have had over the centuries, Prague: A City and Its River is both a cultural guide and beautiful work of art an enlightening homage to the river that continues to shape one of the most historic and beautiful capitals of Eastern Europe
