The English wool market, c. 1230-1327 by Adrian R Bell( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The wool market was extremely important to the English medieval economy and wool dominated the English export trade from the late thirteenth century to its decline in the late fifteenth century. Wool was at the forefront of the establishment of England as a European political and economic power and this volume is the first study of the medieval wool market in over 20 years. It investigates in detail the scale and scope of advance contracts for the sale of wool; the majority of these agreements were formed between English monasteries and Italian merchants, and the book focuses on the data contained within them. The pricing structures and market efficiency of the agreements are examined, employing practices from modern finance. A detailed case study of the impact of entering into such agreements on medieval English monasteries is also presented, using the example of Pipewell Abbey in Northamptonshire
The Gothic revival by Chris Brooks( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the height of the Victorian period, a passion for the Gothic style swept England and spread far beyond. Gothic architecture, associated with the social and cultural ideals of the Middle Ages, was seen as a means of remaking the modern world." "In this exposition, Chris Brooks unravels the layers of meaning that Gothic held for its many reinventors - from the political uses of Gothic history in the seventeenth century to Barry and Pugin's Houses of Parliament in the mid-nineteenth. Yet Gothic is not just buildings: continually recreated, it has taken the form of poetry and fiction, of painting and sculpture, of movies and video games, of Gothic music and Gothic punk. Gothic became a dominant cultural and architectural force not only in nineteenth-century Britain, but across Europe, in the United States, and in the countries of the British Empire. It is still pervasive. This is the first book to deal comprehensively with the whole scope of the Gothic Revival."--Jacket
Signs for the times : symbolic realism in the mid-Victorian world by Chris Brooks( Book )

18 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores imaginative and creative relationships between three major areas of mid-Victorian arts: literature, painting and architecture. Through the detailed critical analysis of particular novels, prose writings, paintings and buildings, the author establishes a fusion of realistic and symbolic values that he sees as central to Victorian creative imagination. He argues that the creative achievement of the mid-nineteenth century needs to be seen far more as a whole than it has been previously, and that fundamental imaginative terms are common to art and architecture, and major theoretical writers. -- Publisher description

The white man's burdens : an anthology of British poetry of the Empire( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1898, notoriously, Kipling urged the imperialist nations to 'Take up the White Man's Burden'. The following year, in Satan Absolved, Wilfred Scawen Blunt angrily replied, 'The White Man's Burden, Lord, is the burden of his cash'. Such ideological conflicts - and a whole range of intermediate positions - feature in much of the poetry that British writers produced about the British Empire over the four centuries of its rise and fall. The discourses of postcolonialism have drawn attention to the major and continuing significance of the cultural products of the period of Western imperialism. But, so far, they have concentrated largely upon fiction and upon the writings and experiences of those parts of the world that were subject to colonialism and imperialist oppression. For the first time, The White Man's Burdens offers a cross-section of British poetry in which the Empire was the burden of the song
