The printing revolution in early modern Europe by Elizabeth L Eisenstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in French and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the importance of the advent of printing for the Western world has long been recognized, it was Elizabeth Eisenstein, in her monumental, two-volume work, The Printing Revolution in Early Modern Europe, who provided the first full-scale treatment of the subject. This illustrated and abridged edition gives a stimulating survey of the communications revolution of the fifteenth century. After summarizing the initial changes introduced by the establishment of printing shops, it goes on to discuss how printing affected three major cultural movements: the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the rise of modern science. This new edition includes a new essay discussing recent controversies provoked by the first edition and reaffirms the thesis that the advent of printing entailed a communications revolution. Fully-illustrated and annotated, the book argues that the cumulative processes set in motion with the advent of printing are likely to persist despite the recent development of new communications technologies
La Boîte de Pandore by Dora Mosse Panofsky( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pandore est la première femme, le beau mal ; elle ouvre une boîte défendue ; en sortent tous les maux dont héritera l'humanité ; seule demeure l'espérance." D'Hésiode à Paul Klee, soit sur la totalité de l'arche de temps de l'art occidental, le mythe de Pandore accomplit son chemin. C'est ce parcours, avec ses longs silences, ses reprises, ses transformations, que le livre de Dora et Erwin Panofsky retrace. 0Le long de cette enquête si riche en pièces à conviction, le lecteur se retrouve, pour sa joie la plus grande, dans la posture de celui qui avance au sein d'une fiction : ce qui s'échappe de la boîte de Pandore ouverte par Erwin et Dora Panofsky, c'est la matière fictionnelle même, dans une pureté quasi originelle. Un nouvel essai du grand historien de l'art Erwin Panofsky, qui s'ajoute aux trois succès dans la collection Bibliothèque Hazan : Dürer, Titien et Les primitifs flamands
