A little tour in France by Henry James( Book )

53 editions published between 1884 and 1975 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I am ashamed to begin with saying that Touraine is the garden of France; that remark has long ago lost its bloom. The town of Tours, however, has some thing sweet and bright, which suggests that it is sur- rounded by a land of fruits. It is a very agreeable little city; few towns of its size are more ripe, more complete, or, I should suppose, in better humor with themselves and less disposed to envy the responsibili- ties of bigger places

Pen drawing and pen draughtsmen, their work and their methods: a study of the art today with technical suggestions by Joseph Pennell( Book )

48 editions published between 1889 and 2015 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

« Pen Drawing and Pen Draughtsmen provides the artist and art student interested in line drawing with the valuable guidance of a master illustrator. Pennell leads us through the wonderfully diverse world of pen-and-ink drawing: the deliberate, ordered calligraphy of Düder; the free line outlines of Rembrandt, which are marked by quickly stroked tones for the designation of color, light, and shadow; Charles Keene's heavy shadow massings; the loose, delicate caresses of Mariano Fortuny and Francesco Casanova; and the ornamental romantic styles of Walter Crane and Aubrey Beardsley. He gives practical information on materials, concise technical suggestions, and essential coverage of reproduction methods. There are more than 400 superb illustrations by nearly 250 artistic personalities for the student and artist to study. These pictures are a veritable goldmine of information, suggestion, and inspiration, and they encompass an amazing array of techniques, outlooks, and ideals. Guided by these pictures and Pennell's knowledgeable hand, the artist can cultivate his own special pen-and-ink technique. »--

Henry James was born on 15 April 1843 and is regarded as one of the great literary figures of 19th Century writing. Born in New York, he moved between there and Europe, being tutored in Geneva, London, Paris, Bologna, and Bonn. At the age of 19 he briefly attended Harvard Law School, but preferred reading literature to studying law and settled the next year in England. As well as an outstanding author he was also a dramatist, travel writer and most passionately, a literary critic. He advocated that all writers should be allowed the greatest possible freedom in presenting their view of the world. Here, he shows his skill as a travel writer. He became a British subject in 1915, a year before his death on 28th February 1916
