Curatola, Giovanni (ed.).  “Persian Ceramics from the 9th to the 14th
Century”  Milan; Skira: 2006.  “In the complex and varied world of Islamic
art ceramics play an important role. Medieval Persian ceramics, in
particular, were extraordinary for their technical invention and
imaginative, refined iconography achieving artistic results that would be
difficult to surpass in the art of pottery. Compared with early Islamic
art, works of art from medieval times make much greater use of figural
decoration and forms. Alongside celebrated examples from some of the
world's most prestigious museum collections, this volume includes a series
of hitherto unseen works. The impressive and technically sophisticated
pieces include plates, bowls, ewers, jugs, jars, beakers, and spouted and
shaped vessels. The book provides an exhaustive panorama of Persian
ceramics, striking a perfect balance between technical, stylistic, and
aesthetic analysis, which brings the reader closer to this art of
exceptional quality and beauty”.  Hardcover. 10”x11.5”, 183 pages, color
and black & white illustrations, dust jacket. Fine.  [37235]  $50.00

Davis, John D.  “Pewter at Colonial Williamsburg”  Hanover; University
Press of New England: 2003.  The collection of British pewter at Colonial
Williamsburg has been formed over the past seventy-five years and is
remarkable for its breadth, illustrating the development of basic forms
and types of decoration from the first decades of the seventeenth century
through those of the nineteenth. Largely British, it also includes some
American wares, though it does reflect the broad distribution of British
pewter in America, especially in Virginia and the lower Chesapeake region,
where there were relatively few practicing pewterers and where there was a
decided dependence on imported pewter. This catalog is divided into
sections based on use, including dining wares, drinking vessels, and
religious objects.  Hardcover, 9”x11”, 364 pages, 957 b/w illustrations,
dj. Fine condition.  [37266]  $40.00

Dennis, James M.  “Grant Wood. A Study in American Art and Culture”  New
York; The Viking Press: 1975.  The first exhaustive monograph on Wood, and
an important study of his life and work. Dennis notes, “While [Wood’s]
best known art is generally categorized as regionalism, this label fails
to account for the many efforts of his early years or to characterize
satisfactorily his successful pictures of the 1930s. Consequently, a basic
purpose of this book is to acquaint the reader with the development of
Grant Wood’s virtually self-taught art, from his earliest works up to and
including his mature style as represented by American Gothic, and to
locate his position in the history of American art and culture”. 
Hardcover. 11”x10.5”, 256 pages, color and black & white illustrations,
dust jacket. Jacket worn.  [37269]  $85.00

Fujioka, Ryoichi.  “Shino and Oribe Ceramics”  Kodansha International:
1977.  Shino and Oribe ceramics revolutionized Japanese pottery in the
late 16th century, replacing the mostly undecorated utilitarian household
wares of the time with vividly decorated and glazed treasures, and
attracting the attention of Japanese connoisseurs who until then had
concentrated on Chinese wares. However, the “creative impulse” behind
Shino and Oribe declined after only a few decades, and their original
methods of production and kiln sites were long forgotten when, in the mid
20th century, scholars began to clear up the mystery. This
well-illustrated study, by a distinguished authority on the subject,
remains a valuable resource.  Softcover. 7.5”x10.5”, 178 pages, color and

Trudel, Jean.  “Silver in New France”  Ottawa; National Gallery of Canada:
1974.  An exhibition of French Colonial silver and silversmiths in Canada.
The French regime in Canada stretched from the founding of the colony in
1534 to Treaty of Paris in 1763. During this period silver was brought
from France by immigrants and also crafted by silversmiths in New France
itself. This loan exhibition examines both types of silver, as the
imported wares inevitably had an influence on the native ones. The focus
is on pieces from the areas around the two large cities of the colony-
Montreal and Quebec. The essays by Jean Trudel are excellent and
informative, as are the catalog entries. 162 pieces are illustrated and
described, and there is a bibliography and a list and index of
silversmiths. An important catalog for further understanding this fine
silver, and the men who made it.  Softcover. 9"x10", 237 pages, profusely
illustrated in black & white. Covers with a little wear.  [37228]  $60.00

Valentine, Elizabeth G.  “Dawn to Twilight, Work of Edward V. Valentine” 
Richmond; William Byrd Press: 1929. Edition limited to 1000 copies.  One

and private commissioned works, and sculpted such notable figures as
Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Elizabeth G. Valentine was his
great-niece, and much of this book is based on the artist’s private
letters and diaries.  Hardcover. 6.5"x9", 201 pages, plus 25 b&w plates,
dust jacket. Inscribed by two members of the Valentine family. Minor wear.

Wagner, Arlene.   “The Art and Character of Nutcrackers”  Collectors
Press: 2005.  Nutcrackers have come in many forms -dogs' heads, elephants'
trunks, clenched fists, cast iron dragons, brass courtesans, objects
resembling surgical pincers,  and any number of plungers, levers, and
gavels—not to mention the traditional little fellow with the big mouth.
Some are elegant in their simplicity, while some are so delightfully
fashioned they can only be considered works of art. This illustrated album
presents nutcrackers and other nutty accessories in hundreds of color
photographs—most are from Europe and America, made from the 15th century
to the present.  Hardcover. 8.5”x11”, 188 pages, loaded with color
illustrations, dj. Fine condition.  [37267]  $60.00

South prior to 1860”  Houston; Museum of Fine Arts: 1968.  An important
loan exhibition catalog with decent photographs. David Warren's
Introduction touches on the stylistic development of Southern silver and
its relative scarcity. This was the first comprehensive exhibition devoted
to southern silver made prior to the Civil War; the majority of the items
are from Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina and Kentucky; Georgia,
Alabama, North Carolina, Louisiana and Texas are also represented.  Card
covers. 8.5"x11", 90 pages, 149 black & white illustrations. Light wear, a

Wenham, Edward.  “The Practical Book of American Silver”  Philadelphia;
J.B. Lippincott Company: 1949.  A stylistic survey which examines
individual types of articles, by period. Within each section he discusses
popular forms such as beakers, tankards, teapots, and so on, and
illustrates his points with clear line drawings which are unfortunately
gathered at the end of the book instead of being integrated with the text.
 He also devotes sections to spoons and forks and miscellaneous items such
as argyles, buckles, coasters, standishes and patch boxes.  Hardcover.
6"x9", 275 pages, 197 line illustrations and 16 b/w plates. Light soil,
minor wear.  [37272]  $25.00

Olivetti/Metropolitan Museum of Art: 1979.  The catalog to the exhibition
of one of the four 2nd century bronze horses which have been part of the
facade of St Mark's Basilica in Venice, since the 13th century. The urgent
need to clean and preserve the horses led to their being removed from
their perch, and one of them being dispatched to the United States for a
short tour. The catalog not only includes an exhaustive history and
examination of the horses, their known history, and possible origins, but
of related artwork from Venice of the early period.  Softcover. 8.5”x9.5”,
245 pages, many black & white and some color illustrations. Some wear.
