Show me the money : the image of finance, 1700 to the present( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does money really stand for? How can the abstractions of high finance be made visible? Show me the money documents how the financial world has been imagined in art, illustration, photography and other visual media over the last three centuries in Britain and the United States. It tells the story of how artists have grappled with the increasingly intangible and self-referential nature of money, from the South Sea Bubble to our current crisis. Show me the money sets out the history and politics of representations of finance through five essays by academic experts and curators, and is interspersed with provocative think pieces by notable public commentators on finance and art. The book, and the exhibition on which it is based, explore a wide range of images, from satirical eighteenth-century prints by William Hogarth and James Gillray to works by celebrated contemporary artists such as Andreas Gursky and Molly Crabapple. It also charts the development of an array of financial visualisations, including stock tickers and charts, newspaper illustrations, bank adverts and electronic trading systems"--Provided by publisher

Jane Austen : a celebration( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we enter the third millennium, Jane Austen is more popular than ever. Not only her six novels, which have been dramatised, televised and filmed, but her letters and poems are alive and well. Her style, her distinctive sensibility and her no-nonsense but subtle sense of character and motive, keep her a the heart of our concerns. Maggie Lane and David Selwyn bring together in this celebration over a century of individual testimony to the abiding value of Jane Austen. They include, too, a few dissenting voices. Other novelists, teachers, politicians, actors and general readers share our passion for the 'comedian' (Bruce Chatwin), the 'unpretentious philosopher' (Lord David Cecil), the 'calm gaze' (David Kossoff), the 'genius' (Barbara Pym) that she was. There is nothing tame about her mannerly world; as W.H. Auden says, 'Beside her Joyce seems innocent as grass.' -- Book cover

The compleat housewife; or, Accomplish'd gentlewoman's companion . . by E Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in London in 1727, The Compleat Housewife was the first cookbook printed in the United States. William Parks, a Virginia printer, printed and sold the cookbook believing there would be a strong market for it among Virginia housewives who wanted to keep up with the latest London fashions & mdash;the book was a best-seller there. Parks did make some attempt to Americanize it, deleting certain recipes & ldquo;the ingredients or material for which are not to be had in this country, & rdquo; but for the most part, the book was not adjusted to American kitchens. Even so, it became the first cookery best seller in the New World, and Parks & rsquo;s major book publication. Smith described her book on the title page as & ldquo;Being a collection of several hundred approved receipts, in cookery, pastry, confectionery, preserving, pickles, cakes, creams, jellies, made wines, cordials. And also bills of fare for every month of the year. To which is added, a collection of nearly two hundred family receipts of medicines; viz. drinks, syrups, salves, ointments, and many other things of sovereign and approved efficacy in most distempers, pains, aches, wounds, sores, etc. never before made publick in these parts; fit either for private families, or such public-spirited gentlewomen as would be beneficent to their poor neighbours. & rdquo; The recipes are easy to understand and cover everything from 50 recipes for pickling everything from nasturtium buds to pigeons to & ldquo;lifting a swan, breaking a deer, and splating a pike, & rdquo; indicating the importance of understanding how to prepare English game. The book also includes diagrams for positioning serving dishes to create an attractive table display. This edition of The Compleat Housewife was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes

Written in Austen's "stile," the central characters undergo the experiences, self-criticism and self-improvement essential to Austen's heroes and heroines"--Website
