Apokalypse by Camille Flammarion( )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das letzte Buch der Bibel, die Offenbarung des Johannes (im Englischen auch "Apocalypse"), prophezeit das Ende aller Zeiten und schildert die Ereignisse, die das Weltende markieren werden. Während des Mittelalters wurde das Motiv des Weltuntergangs zu einem zentralen Thema in der Kunst und gleichzeitig ein Schreckgespenst des Volkes, das unter dem Einfluss religiöser Autorität in tiefer Angst vor einem zornigen Gott lebte. Glücklicherweise hielt dies die Künstler der Apokalypse nicht davon ab, ihrer Fantasie freien Lauf zu lassen und den stark symbolischen Charakter des Offenbarungstexts auf vielfältigste Art und Weise zu deuten und in den verschiedensten Werkstoffen umzusetzen. Dieses Buch bringt einige der berühmtesten Offenbarungsdarstellungen zusammen, von den Wandteppichen der Angers-Apokalypse bis hin zu den eigenwilligen Illustrationen endzeitlicher Visionen eines William Blake. Begleitet wird diese Visualisierung der Apokalypse von einem nuancierten Text zu den zahlreichen falsch datierten und nie gekommenen Weltuntergängen der Menschheitsgeschichte
Apocalypse by Camille Flammarion( )

19 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The final book of the Bible, called both Revelation and Apocalypse, prophesises what will happen at the end of time. During the Middle Ages, in a society which deeply believed in God and was mainly ruled by religious authorities, this theme has often been used in art. Its symbolic content allowed for many different interpretations, using various types of support (tapestries, illuminations, sculpture, painting). This book pools the most famous pieces of art inspired by this theme, such as the Apocalypse drapery from Angers Cathedral, the carved tympanum of the Autun Cathedral, and the fresco in Albi Cathedral. The theme of the Apocalypse was a means to impress minds while also allowing artists to develop their imaginations."--Publisher website

Omega: the last days of the world by Camille Flammarion( Book )

71 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end begins in the twenty-fifth century, when a comet threatens to collide with the earth. The consequences of that frightening cosmic event are far-reaching, setting in motion a series of physical, psychic, and social changes that will profoundly affect the planet and its people far into the future. The earth's surface drastically transforms over time. Cultures radically alter, collapse, and fade away. Nations rise and fall, species become extinct, and human beings find themselves at the end of the world, alone and changed in fundamental ways. This melancholic, poetic science fiction tale of things to come is as compelling and disturbing today as when it was first written
Camille Flammarion's The planet Mars by Camille Flammarion( )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Camille Flammarion (1842-1925) began his career at 16 as a human computer under the great mathematician U.J.J. Le Verrier at the Paris Observatory. He soon tired of the drudgery; he was drawn to more romantic vistas, and at 19 wrote a book on an idea that he was to make his own?the habitability of other worlds. There followed a career as France?s greatest popularizer of astronomy, with over 60 titles to his credit. An admirer granted him a chateau at Juvisy-sur-l?Orge, and he set up a first-rate observatory dedicated to the study of the planet Mars. Finally, in 1892, he published his masterpiece, La Planete Mars et ses conditions d?habitabilite, a comprehensive summary of three centuries? worth of literature on Mars, much of it based on his own personal research into rare memoirs and archives. As a history of that era, it has never been surpassed, and remains one of a handful of indispensable books on the red planet. Sir Patrick Moore (1923-2012) needs no introduction; his record of popularizing astronomy in Britain in the 20th century equaled Flammarion?s in France in the 19th century. Moore pounded out hundreds of books as well as served as presenter of the BBC's TV program "Sky at Night" program for 55 years (a world record). Though Moore always insisted that the Moon was his chef-d?oeuvre, Mars came a close second, and in 1980 he produced a typescript of Flammarion?s classic. Unfortunately, even he found the project too daunting for his publishers and passed the torch of keeping the project alive to a friend, the amateur astronomer and author William Sheehan, in 1993. Widely regarded as a leading historian of the planet Mars, Sheehan has not only meticulously compared and corrected Moore?s manuscript against Flammarion?s original so as to produce an authoritative text, he has added an important introduction showing the book?s significance in the history of Mars studies. Here results a book that remains an invaluable resource and is also a literary tour-de-force, in which the inimitable style of Flammarion has been rendered in the equally unique style of Moore

Astronomie populaire : description générale du ciel by Camille Flammarion( Book )

82 editions published between 1880 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French astronomer Camille Flammarion (1842-1925) firmly believed that science should not be the preserve of elites. His passion for the discoveries of his time is palpable throughout this classic introduction to astronomy, which stands as a landmark in the history of popular science writing. It features 360 illustrations, including highly detailed maps of the Moon and Mars, the latter being of special interest for Flammarion as he compared and contrasted it with the Earth. Originally published in 1880, the work won the approval of the Académie Française and the Minister of Public Instruction. This reissue is of the version that appeared in 1881 after 50,000 copies had already reached an enthusiastic readership. Its translation into English as Popular Astronomy (1894) and another accessible work by Flammarion, Le Monde avant la création de l'homme (1886), are also reissued in this series
