Print Culture In Early Modern France

In this book, Carl Goldstein examines the print culture of seventeenth-century France through a study of the career of Abraham Bosse, a well-known printmaker, book illustrator, and author of books and pamphlets on a variety of technical subjects. The consummate print professional, Bosse persistently explored the endless possibilities of print – single-sheet prints combining text and image, book illustration, broadsides, placards, almanacs, theses, and pamphlets. Bosse had a profound understanding of print technology as a fundamental agent of change. Unlike previous studies, which have largely focused on the printed word, this book demonstrates the extent to which the contributions of an individual printmaker and the visual image are fundamental to understanding the nature and development of early modern print culture.

A garden classic, The Genius of the Place reveals that the history of landscapegardening is much more than a history of design and style; it opens up a wide perspective of Englishcultural history, showing how landscape gardening was gradually transformed over two centuries intoan art that has been widely imitated throughout Europe and North America.The English landscapegarden is richly documented in this anthology. Over 100 illustrations accompany writings that rangefrom Francis Bacon to Jane Austin; from the early 1600s, when Englishmen began to determine theirown concept and form of the garden, through the first half of the eighteenth century when itsdistinctive feature emerged, to the heyday of the landscape garden under "Capability" Brown and thereactions to his pure formalism under Repton and Loudon in the 1800s. This edition contains a newintroduction and bibliography covering the many developments in garden history during the last dozenyears.John Dixon Hunt is Professor in the School of English and American Studies at the Universityof East Anglia and editor of the International Journal of Garden History. Peter Willis, anarchitect, is reader in the History of Architecture at the University of Newcastle.

Like Dürer, Rembrandt and Goya, Anthony van Dyck (1599-1641) made a key contribution to the art of printmaking. He was himself a talented etcher, and prints after his paintings were cut by the best engravers of his day. Yet, to date, his printmaking has suffered from undeserved neglect. This book discusses Van Dyck's first acquaintance with the medium in Rubens's workshop and illuminates the genesis of the Iconography, a portrait gallery of illustrious contemporaries. All his etchings are catalogued together with preparatory drawings and grisailles, as well as proofs containing corrective flourishes. Furthermore the book includes a selection of the prints after paintings by Van Dyck. A number of them were the initiative of the artist himself, and others were produced on behalf of publishers and engravers. Works from the eighteenth century are included to illustrate the influence Van Dyck exerted until long after his death-- even in France and England. The introductory essays discuss the collecting of Van Dyck prints, the phenomenon of the trial proof, and technical aspects of the etchings. Based on new archival research the biographies are included of all those who were instrumental in the production of the prints: engravers, publishers, and the persons to whom they were dedicated by Van Dyck. Many of the prints are reproduced in color and the book has numerous comparative illustrations making it essential not only for scholars and enthusiasts of Van Dyck's work, but all those interested in the history of printmaking.
