Most widely held works by Mount Holyoke College
When the Eiffel Tower was new : French visions of progress at the Centennial of the Revolution by Miriam R Levin( )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berthe Morisot, Impressionist by Berthe Morisot( Book )

11 editions published in 1987 in English and German and held by 1,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Morisot was a gutsy pioneer among the French impressionists. As a standard-bearer of the avant-garde, she created a scandal by helping to organize a public auction of their works, something very few artists had dared to do. Defying the advice of her parents and Manet, she remained in Paris when Prussian troops besieged the city. In her artistic technique she was no less daring. Around 1874, in pictures of tourists and yacht-filled rivers, she broke through to an abbreviated, shorthand style ahead of her contemporaries. Disregarding her own view that Monet had taken landscape painting to its farthest limits, her late oils of gardens are brilliant fireworks of color. This catalogue of a retrospective exhibition that is to tour the country stands on its own as a valuable study. What it lacks is a sense of the inner woman, a shortcoming that has bedeviled most books about her. -- Publishers Weekly

Summit : Vittorio Sella : mountaineer and photographer : the years 1879-1909 by Vittorio Sella( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Weighed down by heavy, nineteenth-century camera equipment, Vittorio Sella climbed some of the world's most mysterious, perilous peaks and photographed them, many for the first time. Climbers today still use Sella's pictures to map out routes and to better comprehend the challenges in store." "Through Sella's images, we witness the grandeur of the Alps, the Caucasus, the Saint Elias Range in Alaska, the Ruwenzori in Africa, and the Himalayas. Sella's portfolio of K2 in the western Himalayas is the definitive photographic study of this mountain, considered to be the world's most difficult and dangerous to climb. His dazzling photographic documentation of these mountains had no predecessors and has few, if any, successors."--Jacket
Wine : a cultural history by John L Varriano( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From celebrations of Bacchus in ancient Rome to the Last Supper and casual dinner parties, wine has long been a key component of festivities, ceremonies, and celebrations. Made by almost every civilization throughout history, in every part of the world, wine has been used in religious ceremonies, inspired artists and writers, been employed as a healing medicine, and, most often, sipped as way to relax with a gathering of friends. Yet, like all other forms of alcohol, wine has also had its critics, who condemn it for the drunkenness and bad behavior that arise with its overconsumption. Wine can render you tongue-tied or philosophical; it can heal wounds or damage health; it can bring society together or rend it. In this fascinating cultural history of wine, John Varriano takes us on a tour of wine's lively story, revealing the polarizing effect wine has had on society and culture through the ages

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Changing prospects : the view from Mount Holyoke by Marianne Doezema( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mt. Holyoke, which overlooks the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts, has been a tourist destination and an inspiration for artists and writers for almost two centuries. The view from its summit attracted the Hudson River School artist Thomas Cole among many others, including literary visitors such as Emily Dickinson, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. In 1836, Cole created the most famous painting associated with the mountain, based on sketches he made during his visit to the site. The Oxbow, which is a centerpiece of this book and the accompanying exhibition, shows a thunderstorm sweeping across the sky above the mountaintop in contrast to the gardenlike pastoral scene in the valley below. It has been described as the most important American landscape painting of the nineteenth century." "Frequent flooding, changing settlement patterns, and industrialization have all had a role in altering the view from the summit. The Oxbow became a closed loop bisected by a highway, and marinas punctuate the Connecticut River. From Cole's time to our own, artists including Edward Corbett, Stephen Hannock, Alfred Leslie, and Elizabeth Meyersohn have observed and recorded these alterations. Color plates of their paintings and photographs, reproduced in the book, allow us to track changes to the landscape and to Cole's influence. Contemporary artists both challenge and pay homage to his vision of the scene, even as their images are used to underline the need to preserve the mountain's natural beauty and cultural significance."--BOOK JACKET
