New York: W.W. Norton, 2005. Hardcover. First Edition / full number line. Laid-in book reviews from the Washington Post and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Fine book in a Fine jacket. Interior pristine. Spine straight and tight, tail slightly bumped. Jacket clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 215 pages. 8 pages of color plates. Is there anyone who has not seen the sturdy Iowa farmer with his pitchfork and his thin-lipped wife or daughter? Ever since it met the public eye in 1930, the work titled American Gothic has elicited admiration, disgust, reverence, and ridicule and has been reproduced hundreds of thousands of times, in every medium. Painted by a self-proclaimed "bohemian" who studied in Paris, the image was first seen as a critique of Midwestern Puritanism and what H. L. Mencken called "the booboisie."

Description:
Ahmedabad/Middletown, NJ: Mapin Publishing Pvt. Ltd./Grantha, May 1992. Hardcover. Yellow cloth over boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Fine book in a Fine jacket. Interior pristine. Spine straight and tight. Jacket clean and bright. No remainder mark. Not clipped. Suitable for gifting. 178 pages. 154 color photographs. 10.5 x 10.5 x 0.7 Inches. The dividing line between art and craft in Tamil Nadu is not easily discernible. With an uninterrupted classical heritage, its craft forms were transformed into works of art - the village terracottas became the great bronzes, the wood carvings became splendid monuments in stone. Unlike other parts of India, Tamilnadu's geographic location in the far south protected it from extraneous influences and made for a certain insularity of culture which strengthened the styles from within.

Description:
Melbourne: Oxford University Press Australia, October 1988. Hardcover. First Edition. Near Fine book in a Very Good jacket. Interior pristine. Spine straight and tight. Upper corners lightly bumped. Jacket lightly rubbed with a single one inch tear to front bottom edge. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xiii + 347 pages. Over 300 illustrations. Heavy book: extra charges for expedited or international shipping. Captain Nicolas Baudin's early 19th-century voyage of scientific discovery to Australia is a little-known event in French and Australian history. Yet that voyage played an important part in the history of Australian and Pacific colonization, and in the long story of worldwide scientific exploration. Departing Le Havre in 1800, Baudin's expedition comprised two ships--the Naturaliste and the Géographe--and 238 men, including 22 scientists. For most of the next three-and-a half years they travelled along the western and southern coasts of Australia, charting the coastline and… Read More
