Letters from Alabama : (U.S.) chiefly relating to natural history by Philip Henry Gosse( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new and improved edition of Letters from Alabama offers a valuable window into pioneer Alabama and the landscape and life-forms encountered by early settlers of the state. Philip Henry Gosse (1810-1888), a British naturalist, left home at age seventeen and made his way to Alabama in 1838. He was employed by Judge Reuben Saffold and other planters near Pleasant Hill in Dallas County as a teacher for about a dozen of their children, but his principal interest was natural history. Letters from Alabama is a personalized record of Gosse's perceptive observations durin
The color of silver : William Spratling, his life and art by Taylor Littleton( )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this illustrated biography of silversmith and graphic artist William Spratling (1900-1967), Taylor D. Littleton reintroduces one of the most fascinating American expatriates of the early twentieth century. Best known for his revolutionary silver designs. Spratling influenced an entire generation of Mexican and American silversmiths and transformed the tiny village of Taxco into the "Florence of Mexico." Littleton widens the context of Spratling's popular reputation by examining the formative periods in his life and art that preceded his brilliant entrepreneurial experiment in the Las Delicias workshop in Taxco, which left a permanent mark on Mexico's artistic orientation and economic life." "Spratling made a fortune manufacturing and designing silver, but his true life's work was to conserve, redeem, and interpret the ancient culture of his adopted country. He explained for North American audiences the paintings of Mexico's modern masters and earned distinction as a learned and early collector of pre-Columbian art. Spratling and his workshop gradually became a visible and culturally attractive link between a steady stream of notable American visitors and the country they wanted to see and experience."--Jacket

Athletics and academe : an anatomy of abuses and a prescription for reform by Wilford S Bailey( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1998 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the abdication of college/university responsibility for the welfare of student-athletes, the failure of colleges to exercise appropriate controls in the administration of athletic programs, and the intentional violation of institutional policies or regulations governing the conduct of intercollegiate athletics. The first section, "Case History," shows how the forces of American culture have contributed to the development of the existing identity of intercollegiate athletics. The second section, titled "Diagnosis: The Pathology of Infractions," offers a discussion of penalties imposed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association since 1952 and the fundamental and contributing causes of abuses in college sports. The third section, "Prescription for Reform: The Essential Ingredients," presents alternative strategies for achieving and maintaining a relationship between athletics and education that is mutually supportive. The fourth section, "Prescription Refinement: Improving the Prognosis," makes the point that in order to achieve a meaningful reform of college sports, major changes must be made in national governing legislation to span the fissure that exists between athletics and education. The fifth section, "In the Waiting Room: The Prospect for Wholeness," emphasizes the uncertainty of whether meaningful reform will be achieved, and the social and psychological consequences attendant on failure.

To prove a villain: the case of King Richard III by Taylor Littleton( Book )

Advancing American art : painting, politics, and cultural confrontation at mid-century by Taylor Littleton( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceived and funded by the State Department in 1946 as part of a new emphasis in international diplomacy, the exhibition of paintings called "Advancing American Art" was launched on what was enthusiastically projected as an extended goodwill tour of Europe and Latin America. But almost immediately the exhibition was attacked by conservative groups as "un-American" and "subversive", and its abstract paintings were ridiculed in the national media, in Congress, and by no less a critic than President Truman. Following their dramatic recall by Secretary Marshall in 1947, the exhibit's 117 paintings were quietly declared "surplus property" and sold under unusual and curious circumstances by the War Assets Administration. Most of the collection was acquired by a small number of public universities in what could be called the art bargain of the century, since works by such figures as Marin, O'Keeffe, Shahn, Dove, Kuniyoshi and Hartley were sold for $100 or less. But the chronicle of this almost forgotten exhibition is less art history than an account of an event that tells us something about America after the war, when the nation sought to reconcile its sacrificial experiences of the last 15 years with its unsettling role in the new international theatre. A reconsideration of "Advancing American Art" within the context of its times captures a significant transitional moment in US history, defining the figures of confrontation that challenged America's tenuous self-conceptions in the critical period of postwar passage. The introduction is written by Pulitzer-Prize-winning historian, Leon Litwack

Philip Henry Gosse : science and art in Letters from Alabama and Entomologia alabamensis by Gary R Mullen( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philip Henry Gosse's detailed watercolors of Alabama's native insects and plants represent a landmark in the annals of American natural history. Offered for the first time are the complete full-color illustrations from Gosse's Entomologia Alabamensis, along with a biographical essay placing Gosse's work in the context of his long and fruitful life. Born in 1810 in Worcester, England, the young Philip Henry Gosse developed a passion for the natural world. Having learned the basics of miniature portraiture from his father, Gosse quickly took for his artistic subjects the flourishing marine life he discovered along the English coast. In May, 1838, Gosse took a teaching job in Dallas County, Alabama. For the next eight months he collected the insect specimens that he would preserve in the beautifully detailed watercolors of Entomologia Alabamensis. In addition, he composed a highly personalized chronology of his life in a frontier culture, published eventually as Letters from Alabama. Following his return to England, Gosse went on to publish more than 40 books, producing some of the 19th century's finest illustrations of insects and marine organisms. Today, he is remembered as a popular writer of science for the general public and as a passionate artist whose work in Alabama and elsewhere captured and revealed the beauty and vitality of the natural world."--Publisher's description
