"Architecture in the Encyclopedie of Diderot and d'Alembert surveys the manner in which architecture and architectural subjects are portrayed in the great twenty-eight volume French Encyclopedie of Denis Diderot and Jean Le Rond d'Alembert, published between 1751 and 1772, and the seven volume Supplement of Joseph Panckoucke, published between 1776 and 1780. The work encompasses architecture; fine arts (painting and sculpture); the art of building; carpentry and joinery; mechanical arts and metal work; military art and fortification; and gardens, gardening and landscape. The reader is provided with detailed inventories of the letter-press articles (discours) and plates (planches) to all these subjects which amount to nearly 5000 citations. These guide the reader/researcher to the source material and to the writers, artists and craftsmen who created the greatest encyclopaedic monument to the age of Enlightenment."--BOOK JACKET. "This book traces the turbulent circumstances which enveloped the Encyclopedie and gives historical and biographical details of the principal contributors to architecture and architectural subjects. One hundred plates are reproduced from the original breathtaking folio engravings. These are accompanied by a 20,000 word translation of the explications abstracted from the French text - thought to be the most comprehensive ever attempted in English on architectural subjects."--BOOK JACKET. "The work has been supported financially by the French Government (Office of the Cultural Attache), the Architect's Registration Council of the United Kingdom and the University of Edinburgh."--BOOK JACKET
The discovery of Egypt : Vivant Denon's travels with Napoleon's army by Terence M Russell( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dominique-Vivant Denon was a lover of the Empress Josephine, a compulsive collector, the first director of the Louvre museum and Bonaparte's adviser on artistic matters. Indeed, Denon was known as 'Napoleon's eye'. But the man who impressed the emperor with his courteous manners and his talent for pornographic drawing was also the primary force behind revealing Egypt's civilisation to an astonished Europe." "Invited to accompany Bonaparte during the French Expedition to Egypt - a staging post in Napoleon's campaign to wrest India from the British - Denon was forcibly struck by Egypt's architecture. With often only a few minutes to record the scene before him, he would sketch under fire. On one occasion he worked for sixteen hours, while the windblown sand caused his eyelids to bleed. Upon his return to France, Denon published Travels in Upper and Lower Egypt. His insightful and deeply humane volume became an instant bestseller. Hitherto no one had suspected that Egypt's rich and mature civilisation existed. In this book Terence M. Russell unfolds Denon's colourful, extraordinary and contradictory character. While Denon was the first to present to Europe a true and honest image of ancient Egypt and the first European traveller to spend months exploring the desert and recording the monuments he found there, he was also a hard-headed collector. Throughout his travels he made plans for the wonders of Egypt to be crated up and shipped back to Paris." "The Discovery of Egypt is a story of heroic endurance and accomplishment set against a bloody military campaign. Illustrated with Vivant Denon's incomparable drawings and the works of others who accompanied Napoleon to the deserts of Egypt, it gives an insight into the mind of one of the first Egyptologists: an adventurer, an artist of consummate ability and a compulsive collector."--Jacket
