Phoebe Anna Traquair : 1852-1936 by Elizabeth Cumming ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Phoebe Anna Traquair was a unique figure in British culture. The first significant professional woman artist in modern Scotland, she was also a key figure in the Arts and Crafts movement. A fee spirit, Traquair celebrated life through image, color and texture, taking her inspiration from Renaissance painting, the art and poetry of Blake and the music of Wagner. She produced a huge body of work, from vast, breathtaking mural decorations and sensual embroideries to exquisite illuminated manuscripts and enamels. Using her own words and those of friends and contemporaries, this beautifully illustrated book sheds new light on the ambitions of late Victorian and Edwardian culture

Robert Louis Stevenson : the travelling mind by Eileen Dunlop ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Robert Louis Stevenson loved to conjure up a dashing, romantic lineage for himself, dreaming that he was descended from the colourful outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. The reality was less flamboyant but no less remarkable, and he would learn that the street lamps of Edinburgh owed their brilliance to the scientific work of his own great-grandfather." "This welcome addition to the Robert Louis Stevenson canon gives a concise account of his life - his family background, childhood and adolescence in a Calvinist, hard-working household in Scotland, his travels in three continents, and his final years in the South Seas. It examines his relationships with his parents and his nurse, with English and American friends, particularly the family into which he married, and with the Samoan islanders among whom he died at the age of 44."--BOOK JACKET
Queen Margaret of Scotland by Eileen Dunlop ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A familiar and well-loved figure, Queen Margaret of Scotland occupies a place somewhere between legend and history. Over the nine centuries since her death truth, faith and fantasy have combined to create a myth held dear by generations of Scots, a myth that has inspired art, literature and the dedication of countless churches, institutions and schools." "The stained glass window from St. Margaret's Chapel in Edinburgh Castle typically depicts her as a saintly young woman who yearned to be a nun, but whose destiny was to become a queen. This and other such idealised representations have served to make Margaret into an icon, yet how did this medieval queen, canonised in 1249, create such a lasting impression?" "It is clear that Margaret was an exceptional, indeed heroic, individual. Her compassion, energy and commitment to the relief of suffering in the midst of extreme political and social upheaval are traits that still speak eloquently to today's troubled world. Perhaps this explains, in part, why Margaret remains an inspirational figure after so many years." "Looking at ancient sources and modern scholarship afresh, this book pieces together the life of Queen Margaret of Scotland, the truth behind the legend, and the turbulent period of history in which she lived."--BOOK JACKET
