The visual arts : a history by Hugh Honour ( Book )
34 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 2,750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The most up-to-date and wide-ranging history of art ever published in a single volume, The Visual Arts: A History presents art as an integrated dimension of human activity. With insight and elegance, it offers an authoritative, balanced, and stimulating account of the arts - ranging from a statuette carved in central Europe some 30,000 years ago to contemporary installation pieces by Jenny Holzer and Gary Hill. The scope is international, including the art of Asia, Africa, and Oceania. The fine arts are represented, of course, by painting, mosaic, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, architecture, and photography. But so are other arts: textiles, coins, pottery, enamels, gold and silver work, Earth and Land Art, Body and Video Art, to name a few. Authors Hugh Honour and John Fleming, two of this century's most esteemed art historians, explore the purpose and meaning of art in ways that challenge conventional ideas about "progress" and aesthetic enjoyment. They show how art can give pleasure and also deepen our self-knowledge. They guide us in understanding the visual arts' role in maintaining beliefs, practicing rituals, and transmitting moral and social codes. On the practical side, their text presents a sound account of techniques and methods of painting, building, and sculpting, and it explains the basic tools of the visual arts, such as color and perspective systems

The philosophy of zoology; or, A general view of the structure, functions, and classification of animals by John Fleming ( Book )
2 editions published in 1822 in Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Animals are related to one another, and to the objects which surround them, in such a manner, as to be dependent on a variety of circumstances for the preservation of their existence, their dispersion over the globe, and their power of accommodation to the changes of the seasons. They are likewise to be viewed as admitting of division into classes and subordinate groups, according to the external or internal characters which they exhibit. In the investigation of these characters, a variety of methods are employed, and many rules have been prescribed, to regulate the principles of zoological nomenclature. In order to enter more fully into these important subjects, we shall distribute the present volume into Four Parts. In the first, we shall consider the Condition of Animals in reference to their Duration, Distribution, and Economical Uses. In the second, we shall treat of the Methods of Investigation employed to ascertain their structure and actions. In the third, we shall examine the Rules of Nomenclature; while the fourth will embrace a General View of the Classification of the Objects of the Animal Kingdom"--Book.
