Ralph Earl, Recorder for an Era
Ralph Earl, Recorder for an Era (June 1967)
Laurence B. Goodrich - Author

Here at long last is the study of the life and paintings of Ralph Earl, the colorful eighteenth-century American artist whose pictures hang in the great galleries but about whom relatively little has appeared in print. A pioneer landscapist in a day when portraiture was the vogue, a Tory in Revolutionary New England, he nevertheless captured the stance and spirit of the new nation in the first decades after the Revolution. He portrayed the m...(Read More)
 
 
Nineteenth-Century Houses in Western New York
Nineteenth-Century Houses in Western New York (June 1966)
Jewel H. Conover - Author

The author confesses that she became interested in doing this pictorial study just because she likes nineteenth century architecture. And for this very reason she has composed a scholarly appreciation, rather than a cumbersome technical analysis, that all can read with enjoyment, whatever one's acquaintance with the formal study of architecture. In the introductory chapters she recounts the history of the region and the economic and social back...(Read More)
 
 
Problems and Policies of Malesherbes as Directeur de la Librarie in France (1750-1763)
Problems and Policies of Malesherbes as Directeur de la Librarie in France (1750-1763) (June 1966)
Edward P. Shaw - Author

Chrétien-Guillaume de Malesherbes was director of the book trade and chief of the royal censors during the tumultuous formative period of the esprit philsophique in eighteenth-century France. As such, no single bureaucrat wielded more personal influence on the professional careers of authors and booksellers, on the progress of letters or the dissemination of knowledge in pre-revolutionary France, than this enlightened aristocra...(Read More)
 
 
Swinburne's Theory of Poetry
Swinburne's Theory of Poetry (June 1965)
Thomas E. Connolly - Author

Charles Algernon Swinburne's literary reputation rests almost exclusively upon his poetry, and though his critical writings were voluminous, they are usually slighted by literary historians. Examinations of Swinburne's aesthetic principles, too, are generally based upon interpretations of his poetry, though these may be as misleading as the discrepancies between other artists' principles and practices.

Believing that a solid and consistent c...(Read More)

The Mexican Mining Industry, 1890-1950 (June 1965)
A Study of the Interaction of Politics, Economics, and Technology
Marvin D. Bernstein - Author

An economic history of the Mexican mining industry.

The patterns of the industry’s structure and operat...(Read More)
 
 
A Reading of the Canterbury Tales
A Reading of the Canterbury Tales (June 1964)
Bernard F. Huppe - Author


In the human comedy of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales the pilgrims react to one another. The tales they tell reveal their own characters and serve in turn to supply dramatic settings for other tales told in response. In the chronicle of their self-revelations and of their reactions to one another, a thematic design may be traced. Chaucer's art of high comedy has behind it a literary tradition of which it is the fulfillment...(Read More)

Through comprehensive analysis and narrative, this study illuminates one of the most enigmatic areas of Western Hemisphere relationships.

From what would seem to be a bewildering array of ...(Read More)

Saul Levin - Author

Examines the evidence for the phonetic value of individual Linear B characters.

Michael Ventris’s decipherment of the pre-historic Linear B tablets discovered in Greece and Crete provided one of the most dramatic moments in recent historical research.
