The Cambridge illustrated history of the world's science by Colin A Ronan( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in French and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fondé sur les récents apports de la recherche historique, ce livre propose "une vue d'ensemble du développement de la science et de la pensée scientifique à travers le monde depuis les premiers temps jusqu'à nos jours". L'illustration est attrayante. On peut reprocher à cette synthèse, par ailleurs satisfaisante, de ne consacrer qu'une soixantaine de pages à la science du 20e siècle. [SDM]

The shy and sweet daughter of a well-to-do physician, Catherine Sloper seems destined for lifelong spinsterhood until the sudden appearance of a dashing suitor who proposes marriage. Her adored father suspects the would-be fiance of fortune-hunting and threatens her with disinheritance, forcing Catherine to choose between lover and father. Setting his novel in New York City of the 1840s, James masterfully explores the moral consequences of a tender heart's ruthless manipulation

Masaccio by John T Spike( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bold and realistic, the narrative power of Masaccio's entire body of work is explored in this elegant volume. In just seven years before his death at the age of twenty-six, Masaccio (1401-1428) developed a fully naturalistic and dramatic style that inaugurated Renaissance painting. His best-known work is the fresco cycle in the Brancacci Chapel in Florence (painted with Masolino), one of the world's artistic landmarks. Recently restored, these frescoes - with all of Masaccio's other works - are shown in stunning detail in this volume. An opening essay places the painter in his historical and art-historical context, emphasizing Masaccio's innovations. The second part of the book presents two dozen important paintings in full-spread or full-page reproductions with enlarged details and annotated brief essays for each. The last section is an illustrated catalogue raisonne of all of Masaccio's works, from the frescoes on public view in the Brancacci Chapel to other panels in Europe and the United States. John T. Spike's lucid, authoritative text traces Masaccio's artistic development with particular attention to the artist's connection to Donatello and Brunelleschi. He proposes a new reading of the iconography of the influential Brancacci Chapel, and discusses the extent of Filippino Lippi's over-painting in the chapel, based on information gleaned from recent ultraviolet and infrared photography that appears in this volume. Comprehensive and engaging, this profusely illustrated exploration of Masaccio's genius opens new lines of inquiry that will be explored for decades to come

Frère Cadfael fait pénitence by Ellis Peters( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" En inaugurant en 1977 la série de frère Cadfael, jamais Ellis Peters n'aurait imaginé que le pays de Galles deviendrait un lieu de pèlerinage pour les amateurs de polars "monastiques". Dans le joli monde du roman policier anglais classique, elle s'est taillé une place fort enviable : cette saga a été traduite en vingt-cinq langues. Cette "bénédictine du mystère", comme l'a surnommée François Rivière, a créé avec son moine enquêteur, féru d'herboristerie, un cas à part. Les intrigues sont toujours jouissives, pleines d'humour, agréables pour ceux qui aiment les vieux châteaux, les moeurs de l'époque et l'histoire du Moyen Age. Ce "whodunit" médiéval est une véritable bouffée d'air frais dans le monde du roman noir à ras de bitume. " Christophe Rodriguez, "Lectures"

Fra Angelico by John T Spike( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Called "Angelico" for his inimitable depictions of paradise, this artist (1400?-1455) and Dominican friar succeeded Masaccio as the foremost painter of the early Renaissance in Italy. Fra Angelico's painting has been beloved for centuries since as an emblem of the flowering genius of quattrocento Florence. In his engaging new appraisal, John Spike reveals the unexpectedly innovative qualities of Angelico's art, including his use of linear and geometric perspective (even before the publication of Leon Battista Alberti's famous treatise). Another of Angelico's inventions was the Renaissance altar-piece known as the sacra conversazione (sacred conversation), in which the Virgin and Child and saints, formerly each rigidly enclosed in separate panels, now gesture and relate to each other within a clearly unified space. In this volume Spike presents a major discovery: the secret program of the forty frescoes in the cells of the Dominican Monastery of San Marco in Florence. All previous studies of this artist had concluded that the subjects and arrangement of these frescoes, the artist's masterworks, were chosen at random, or by the friars themselves. Instead, as the author now shows, Fra Angelico drew upon the mystical writings of the early church fathers to construct a spiritual exercise organized into three ascending levels of enlightenment. The San Marco frescoes can finally be seen as not only the most extensive cycle of works by any single painter of this century, but indeed the most complete pictorial expression of Renaissance theology. This essential volume contains an extensive essay on the artist's life and work, followed by large color plates with detailed discussions of individual works. Finally, a catalog presents the artist's oeuvre, as revised by the author's new attributions. With lavish details of Angelico's works and an up-to-date bibliography, this volume is not only a feast for the eyes but an indispensable resource for anyone interested in this critical period of the Renaissance
