The great experiment : George Washington and the American Republic by John H Rhodehamel ( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To most Americans, George Washington is a remote figured encased in myth, more a monument than a man. This book brings him vividly to life once again--a man who was born a loyal subject of the British Crown and became the leader of a radical revolution, a victorious military leader who relinquished the trappings of power to return to farming, a reluctant statesman who forged the institutions of a popular government that have endured for two centuries. The text is enhanced by illustrations that reproduce an array of original documents, contemporary portraits, artifacts, and personal memorabilia of Washington and her family.--From publisher description
Ho for California! : Women's overland diaries from the Huntington Library by Sandra L Myres ( Book )
7 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The art of Bloomsbury : Roger Fry, Vanessa Bell, and Duncan Grant by Richard Shone ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The word Bloomsbury most often summons the novels of Virginia Woolf and E.M. Forster or images of artists and intellectuals debating the hot parlor topics of 1910s and 1920s London: literary aesthetics, agnosticism, defining truth and goodness, and the ideas of Bertrand Russell, A.N. Whitehead, and G.E. Moore. But the Bloomsbury Group also played a prominent role in the development of modernist painting in Britain. The work of artists Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, Roger Fry, and their colleagues was often audacious and experimental, and proved to be one of the key influences on twentieth-century British art and design. This catalogue, published to accompany a major international exhibition of the Bloomsbury painters originating at the Tate Gallery in London and traveling to the Yale Center for British Art and the Huntington Art Gallery, provides a new look at the visual side of a movement that is more generally known for its literary production. It traces the artists' development over several decades and assesses their contribution to modernism. Catalogue entries on two hundred works, all illustrated in color, bring out the chief characteristics of Bloomsbury painting--domestic, contemplative, sensuous, and essentially pacific. These are seen in landscapes, portraits, and still lifes set in London, Sussex, and the South of France, as well as in the abstract painting and applied art that placed these artists at the forefront of the avant-garde before the First World War. Portraits of family and friends--from Virginia Woolf and Maynard Keynes to Aldous Huxley and Edith Sitwell--highlight the cultural and social setting of the group. Essays by leading scholars provide further insights into the works and the changing critical reaction to them, exploring friendships and relationships both within and outside of Bloomsbury, as well as the movement's wider social, economic, and political background
The Butterfield overland mail by Waterman Lilly Ormsby ( Book )
16 editions published between 1942 and 2007 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the classic firsthand account by Waterman L. Ormsby, a reporter who in 1858 crossed the western states as the sole through passenger of the Butterfield Overland Mail stage on its first trip from St. Louis to San Francisco. Ormsby's reports, which promptly appeared in the New York Herald, are lively and exciting. He describes the journey in close detail, giving full accounts of the conveyances, the accommodations, the other passengers, the country through which they passed, the dangers to which they were exposed, and the constant necessity for speed."

Edward Weston : a legacy by Edward Weston ( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the first major book to celebrate the Huntington's collection of five hundred Edward Weston photographs, all of them selected and printed for the institution by the artist in the 1940s. The Guggenheim photographs lie at the heart of this legacy, but Weston also included in his gift still-life studies from the early 1920s and 1930s, as well as later landscapes from the 1940s. Weston selected these photographs as representative of his best work, and they are reproduced here, complemented by investigations into the influences that shaped them."--BOOK JACKET

"William Morris, leader of the British Arts and Crafts Movement, was a man of tremendous energies, his accomplishments astonishing in their range and depth. He became successively a poet, embroiderer, pattern designer, calligrapher, dyer, weaver, translator, architectural preservationist, socialist, book publisher and printer. As the head of the internationally successful Morris & Company, he devoted himself to the decorative arts. His influence was wide and long-lasting, on both sides of the Atlantic."--BOOK JACKET

George Romney, 1734-1802 by Alex Kidson ( Book )
7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"George Romney was one of the key figures in British art in the late eighteenth century. The main rival of Sir Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough - and for much of his career more fashionable than both - Romney as a portraitist helped create the Regency style with his mature brand of mannerism, elegance and informality. His chief ambition, however, was to succeed as a history painter and he made countless drawings for literary and mythological pictures that he never had time to paint. These drawings, executed with a boldness and freedom that have appealed to many artists in the later twentieth century, mark Romney as one of the first Romantics." "This book marks the bicentenary of Romney's death and reflects a new stage in his popularity. One hundred years ago, collectors fought to obtain his portraits of fresh-faced women, especially those of Emma Hart, later Lady Hamilton, who in the mid-1780s became his favourite model and muse. As the more snobbish and sexist aspects of Edwardian taste became outdated, Romney's art fell spectacularly from favor. To this day, it has remained little understood in detail, and this book offers the first in-depth modern overview of his career." "This book illustrates over 200 works by Romney. Many of them are reproduced here for the first time, while many more have been the subject of new research. George Romney is considered afresh in the light of these discoveries and he emerges at his best as one of the most brilliant and inventive artists of his time."--BOOK JACKET
Rage or raillery; the Swift manuscripts at the Huntington Library by George Mayhew ( Book )
3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The great wide open : panoramic photographs of the American West by Jennifer A Watts ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Throughout the nineteenth century, the drive to explore and conquer the American West was evocatively captured in lush photographic imagery. The convergence of photography's invention with western expansion has left a rich legacy of visual materials that document and comment upon the vast spaces, mysterious features, and "exotic" peoples of the trans-Mississippi territory. The Great Wide Open focuses on concepts of the "panoramic", or the wide-angle view, tracing how this specific form of visual representation amplified the idea of the American West as a supposedly virgin and sparsely populated land of endless resources, and an ideal landscape for American enterprise." "Covering topics ranging from settlement to tourism and environmental change, The Great Wide Open examines myths of transition from uncivilized vastness to civilized order, the ongoing dialogue between the past and the present, and the creation of new narratives as well as the substantiation of old ones. Forty plates of panoramic photographs of the American West, dating from the 1850s to the present day - including work by Eadweard Muybridge, E.O. Goldbeck, Carleton E. Watkins, and, among contemporary photographers, Mark Klett, Catherine Opie, Karen Halverson, and Gus Foster - chart the mythologization of the American Dream."--BOOK JACKET
