82 Pirani, Emma. Gothic Illuminated Manuscripts.
London: The Hamlyn Publishing Group Limited, (1970). 
Small octavo, grey boards (hardcover), gilt letters, 158 pp. Near-Fine, with slight age darkening; in a Fine dust jacket. From dust jacket: During the Middle Ages, as Western Europe developed, the demand for religious and civil documents rapidly increased. It was then that the task of illuminating manuscripts blossomed into a fine art, culminating in the exquisite miniatures of the Gothic period. As abstract Byzantine elements decreased a new Western realism emerged, which characterised the Gothic style. A sense of movement became all important, and emotion was shown by significant gestures and expressions. It is fascinating to compare those artists who have an intense dramatic style with those whose work is essentially refined and graceful. Mystery of composition, delicate handling of paint and imaginative attention to detail are brought together with consummate skill in the finest miniatures. In France, more than in any other European country, manuscript illumination became a courtly art. Louis IX and subsequent French sovereigns built up their own libraries which increasingly demanded the services of scribes and illuminators. Religious works gave way to romances, chivalric poems, songs and works of history, in which the artists allowed their imagination full rein. It is in these charming genre scenes that the Medieval age has been immortalised, with gentle humour, insight and compassion.

84 Polak, Ada. Modern Glass.
New York: Thomas Yoseloff, (1962). First American Edition, Stated. 
Octavo, green cloth (hardcover), red spine label, gilt letters, 94 pp + 96 Plates. Neat former-owner inscription and light foxing (age darkened spotting) to endpapers; in a Very Good dust jacet with edgewear. From dust jacket: Glass has proved to be material particularly sympathetic to the modern artist-designer -- to use that term in its widest connotation. From the time of Emile Galle, in the third quarter of the nineteenth century, right up to the present day, glass has consistently appealed to artists -- often those brought up to work in quite different media -- as an ideal material for the embodiment of contemporary art-forms, whether those of the Art Nouveau or those of Functionalism. Mrs. Poak surveys with great analytic mastery these successive movements, the artists who worked within them, and the different types of glass which they produced. Her survey ranges from the triumph of the great French masters, Galle and Rousseau, in the heyday of the Art Nouveau, up to the day before yesterday, when the palm for glass design had passed into the hands of Finns, Italians and Swedes. The illustrions pass in review a perhaps unparalleled series of glass-masterpieces.
