The art and times of the guitar; an illustrated history of guitars and guitarists by Frederic V Grunfeld( Book )

40 editions published between 1969 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a lively narrative, filled with historical anecdote and the texts of songs and ballads, Frederic Grunfeld traces the guitar's evolution through the ages, in the hands of the people who played it: stone-age hunters who twanged the forerunner of all stringed instruments, the mouth bow; Hittites, Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans; the Moorish minstrels of Spain and the medieval troubadours; sixteenth-century Spanish court composers; rococo French voluptuaries; Romantic virtuosos like Sor and Giuliani (as well as Berlioz and Paganini): and the many important modern exponents of the guitar, ranging from Andrés Segovia and Julian Bream to Leadbelly, Charlie Christian, and George Harrison. Woven through the pages of this social history are details of the instruments technical development--the continuing changes in its physical form and the various styles of playing and notation that have produced drastically different sounds and moods from the sixteenth century to the electronic twentieth

The Hitler file; a social history of Germany and the Nazis, 1918-45 by Frederic V Grunfeld( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book fills a major gap in the current spate of books on the Nazis and their leader. It provides the reader with a pictorial history of the events in Germany from 1918 to 1945. The elaborate symbolism and psychology of Nazism and the complex personality of Hitler himself are studied in detail through a wealth of carefully chosen illustrations which include still photographs, film clips, posters, cartoons and propaganda material. The result is a wholly absorbing cultural and social history of Nazism, much of it drawn from sources never used in a book before

Rodin : a biography by Frederic V Grunfeld( )

11 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auguste Rodin was not only the greatest sculptor--known for such works as The Thinker, The Kiss, The Hand of God, and dozens of others--but also one of the most remarkable personalities of modern times. He was an artist who outraged contemporaries with his disturbingly unfinished monuments, a sensualist who shocked France with his scandalous relationships, and a friend to the most gifted writers and artists of his day. Frederic V. Grunfeld's exhaustive biography documents a lifetime of both artistic and personal struggle--against poverty, against the conservative Paris Salon, and against an art establishment that for years denied him recognition. Rodin's crucial love affair with his pupil Camille Claudel emerges here in all its tragic complexity, as do his relationships with the British painter Gwen John and the American-born duchess Claire de Choiseul. Grunfeld also sheds new light on Rodin's friendships with such figures as Robert Louis Stevenson, George Bernard Shaw, Émile Zola, and James McNeill Whistler. Beautifully written, Rodin is the definitive biography of a man whose influence on sculpture was as profound as Michelangelo's
