Most widely held works by Julian Raby
Venice, Dürer, and the oriental mode by Julian Raby( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 2001 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study aims to clarify Venetian Quattrocento Orientalism, which affected Durer and thus Northern Europe, and to define the sources and practitioners of its Oriental motifs. At the end of the fifteenth century a large number of paintings were produced in Venice that depict exotic animals and figures set against the backdrop of Oriental architecture. It was Europe's earliest attempt to portray Muslims in a Muslim habitat, but it was more than a vague and ill-informed evocation of the East. Realistic in many of their details, these Orientalist pictures reflect the Serenissima's political and mercantile links with the fifteenth century Islamic Empires of the Eastern Mediterranean

İpek, the crescent & the rose : imperial Ottoman silks and velvets by Nurhan Atasoy( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Figured silk fabrics were among the most powerful and most characteristic artistic products of the Ottoman empire. Through their role as diplomatic gifts, silks came to symbolize the Ottoman imperium to foreigners, while at home they were an important vehicle for the transmission of artistic ideas, and a key factor in the economy. Wars were fought for control of silk revenues, and governments devoted major bureaucratic efforts towards the organization, regulation and taxation of silk production. Silks took a major role in Ottoman public ceremonies and in upper-class culture, denoting status and forming a part of the compensation of state officials." "This book is the result of an international research project undertaken over a number of years. It is the first major study of Ottoman textiles to attempt a classification of the key technical and decorative categories, and is also the first to offer a catalogue of dateable textiles. The authors not only draw on the famous collections of the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul and other major museums around the world, but have rediscovered many lesser-known fabrics in ecclesiastical treasuries in Russia and Central Europe. New research in the Ottoman archives has shed documentary light on the legislation of silk production, and on the competing industries of Bursa and Istanbul."--BOOK JACKET
