Eternal Greece

By Warner,Rex

London: Thames & Hudson, 1957. "Ancient Greece was the fountainhead of Western civilization, and the richness of the legacy handed down to later generations by the Hellenic world is without parallel. Today, only weathered monuments, some little more than ruins, fragments of friezes and isolated sculptures remain to bear tangible witness to this once flourishing pre-Christian culture. But its spirit lives on: in the records of its poets, dramatists and historians, and in the very blood of its inheritors. Dr Hurlimann and Mr Warner, by dint of a singularly happy collaboration, have succeeded in bringing Ancient Greece once more before our eyes. The former has, with his camera, captured all the qualities that make up the perfection of Greek architecture; the milky clarity of the white Attic sunshine on marble, the forlorn dignity of sacred grove and deserted amphitheatre, the opalescent shimmer of Aegean bays. To complement these admirable pictures, the author of Men and Gods and Greeks and Trojans gives us a lucid account of what he considers to be the salient features of Hellenic civilization, incorporating a number of his own entirely new renderings from the works of Ancient Greek writers. Here is a feast for the eye and for the mind. No such authoritative yet readily assimilable record of 'the glory that was Greece' Large format survey of the most important archaeological sites in Greece, printed in a large size type face and with marvellous photographs in B & W and colour.175p. illus. Cover slightly sun faded and soiled.. Reprint. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Photographs By Max Hurliman.

Cats in Love

By Silvester, Hans W.

San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2006. Perhaps the most acclaimed photographer of cats in the world, Hans Silvester returns to his beloved Greek isles, the subject of his best-selling Cats in the Sun, for this glorious new collection of deliciously sun-drenched photographs. Cats in Love reveals the full wealth and intensity of feline affection -- from the amorous prowl of a tomcat to the motherly tenderness of a tabby; from the playful nips of tussling kittens to friends caught curled up in a nap; from a pair of young acquaintances shyly rubbing noses to a couple of old friends grooming each other. Set against the idyllic white-washed villages of the Mediterranean, this is love in all its sweet diversity. Sure to delight fans of Silvester's previous work, Cats in Love will certainly charm softies of every stripe. 152p. of wonderful colour photographs. A delightful gift book for fans of felines!.

Greece: Land of Light

By Gage, Nicholas;

Boston, MA: Little Brown & Co, 1998. "Greece is a legendary destination, and anyone who has once fallen under its spell dreams of returning again and again. GREECE: LAND OF LIGHT captures the essence of Greece, its striking sea and landscape, its peoples, its culture and history, and its ancient monuments.In the stark light of the Greek sun, colors become so pure and clear that they are almost audible. From the tip of the Peloponnese to the remote mountain villages of the far north to the islands of the Aegean, Brukoff’s brilliant color images and Gage's evocative words delineate the heart of Greece. Included are the great classical ruins, Byzantine monasteries, colorful fishing villages, chairs at outdoor tavernas, octopus drying in the sun like laundry, and the ubiquitous cats—the vivid details that each traveler takes home as a memory." Gage’s insightful essays on the turbulent history of Greece, its myths and beliefs, life in the villages, the age-old wisdom and spirit of the Greek people, and above all, Greece’s unearthly, spiritual, almost holy light are a passionate tribute to an extraordinary country.160p. plates (col) index . 1st US Ed..

The Most Beautiful Villages of Greece

By Ottaway, Mark & Palmer, Hugh

London: Thames & Hudson, 1998. From the terracotta and ocher of the Ionian Islands to the brilliant blue and white of the Aegean, the beautiful villages of Greece and its islands are incomparable. The variety of village life and building springs from a multitude of histories and influences, yet these villages are all, in their separate ways, quintessentially Greek. Here, then, are the loveliest villages created by the indomitable Greek spirit, all set in a landscape of overwhelming magnificence. We travel in the mountains of the mainland and the Pelion peninsula, land of the mythical Centaurs. Stone-walls and overhanging wood-framed balconies betray a Turkish influence. In the southern Peloponnese are the Maniot villages and their characteristic tower houses, built by warring families the better to pursue their vendettas. From north to south through the mainland and the Peloponnese, from west to east through the islands, the mixture of intimacy and grandeur continues. The Ionian Islands are home to belfried churches, pitched tile roofs, porticoes and colonnades, testimonies to years of Venetian rule. In contrast the flat-roofed white houses of the Cyclades, startling against the blue Aegean Sea, seem to express the very essence of Greece. Other islands mirror an international trading and shipping tradition such as Chios whose substantial country mansions were left by the Genoese.. 1st UK Ed. Hard Cover. New/Near Fine - Price Clipped.
