Native arts of North America by Christian F Feest( Book )

48 editions published between 1980 and 1999 in 5 languages and held by 1,802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The craftsmanship of native North American peoples is now regarded as art of a high order, yet not until the early twentieth century did it become the subject of aesthetic discussion. The varied and vital forms of Indian artifacts--from the totem poles of the Northwest Coast to the rock engravings of the Anasazi--create an extraordinary record of native traditions and their subtle interactions with European influence. Classifying surviving works by material and technique, the author covers a huge field--a thousand tribes and about 200 languages. The works described and illustrated range from an Arapaho Ghost Dance dress to Buffalo Meat's self-portrait, from Seminole applique work of the 1890s to a Tlingit spoon carved from mountain goat horn; all of them works of art that testify to a vast field of human achievement." -- Publisher's description
A new world : England's first view of America by Kim Sloan( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reproduces in full the celebrated but rarely seen British Museum collections of watercolours made by this relatively unknown gentleman-artist. It also tells the story of his five voyages to 'Virginia' and his role as Governor of the 'Lost Colony' of Roanoke, which preceded Captain John Smith's more successful settlement at Jamestown twenty years later." "White's watercolours bring to life the complex and sophisticated culture of the coastal Carolina Algonquians. All his known work is reproduced here - maps and charts, watercolours of Florida Indians, West Indian flora and fauna, the Inuit encountered by Martin Frobisher, and an amazing and influential set of watercolours of Picts and ancient Britons. Each one is reproduced in colour opposite its historical explanation, supplemented by the famous de Bry engravings, which were responsible for spreading his images throughout Europe, as well as other comparable works by contemporary and later artists including Mark Catesby, the eighteenth-century natural historian."--Jacket

Indians and Europe : an interdisciplinary collection of essays( Book )

27 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive, interdisciplinary collection of essays offers the first in-depth, extended look at the complicated, changing relationship between European and Native peoples. The contributors explore three aspects of this relationship: Why and how did the cultures and histories of Europeans enable Native peoples to become absorbed into the reality of the Old World? What happened in actual encounters between American Indian visitors and their European hosts? How did continued and increased interaction between Indians and Europeans affect established imagery and preconceptions on both sides?"--page 4 of cover
The art of war by Christian F Feest( Book )

Albrecht Dürer : his art in context by Albrecht Dürer( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A comprehensive catalogue covering all aspects of Albrecht Dürer's extensive oeuvre has been published in conjunction with the exhibition. As a means of elucidating the suspenseful interplay between Dürer and his contemporaries, the catalogue places Dürer's works in their historical context and deliberately juxtaposes them with works by artists of the same period. The reader thus gains very direct insight into the superior technical mastery as well as the intensity of Dürer's art."--Publisher's description
