Review
This comprehensive survey includes reviews by art historians, scientists, practicing craftsmen, and conservators. Most of the important techniques and classes of objects are included, together with articles giving scientific descriptions of the chemistry and metallography of the patination and plating processes. The problems of conservation/preservation are also discussed. In addition, there are a number of chapters on important new discoveries such as the existence of shakudo type alloys in classical antiquity, and controversial subjects such as the existence of artificial patination on ancient Chinese metalwork.

Abstract
Best known for his lavish portraits of 17th-century nobility at the court of King Charles I in particular, Anthony van Dyck was also a master in the arts of drawing, watercolour and engraving. While his formal commissions are couched in the language of conspicuous wealth and power, his sketches and drawings display a taste for the dramatic action scene as well as a keen sense of character and humour. This book published on the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Van Dyck's birth takes a close look at all aspects of the master's techniques, his subject matter from highly stylised royal portraits to sketches of a beloved dog, and the modernity of his watercolour landscapes. Through a wide variety of ink and chalk drawings the text explores the relationship of the painter with the different media, and with the artistic conventions of his time. The biography places van Dyck in his historical context and completes a fresh, unorthodox view of this artist.

Reviews Charles Dodgson - aka Lewis Carroll, the author of the Alice books - was interested in photography, and his enthusiasm for photographing naked small girls has meant that he has come to be regarded as a passive paedophile. This new book sets out to show that this reputation is undeserved, and does so triumphantly. Dodgson's family appear to have tolerated the accusations of paedophilia in order to disguise a more enthusiastic interest in mature women - a less forgivable moral lapse! The book is a strange, fascinating and entirely original piece of research, showing considerable insight into Victorian social attitudes. (Kirkus UK) --.In a vigorous effort to subvert the "potent mythology" surrounding Lewis Carroll, ne Charles Dodgson (1832-1898) - that he was a "Victorian clergyman, shy and prim, and locked to some degree in perpetual childhood," and, oddly at the same time a pedophile - Leach, a British playwright, claims that Dodgson had… Read More

"A great way to learn about China's vast history!" —Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club "Excels at clarifying the often-confusing transitional periods between dynasties… An excellent introduction to the large trends of early Chinese history." —School Library Journal "Chinese language is being taught in all but one state... A comic format teaching China's history is the perfect companion." —US-China Review "Combines breezy style with historical rigor to strike just the right gong-tone for a middle school audience approaching the vast scope of Chinese history." —Education About Asia 5/5 Stars "An invaluable source...
