Pop-Up and Movable Books. 'Harlequinades, also known as
metamorphoses or turn-up books, were the simplest type of movable books.

in Modern Dress. 'History, whether manifested as
embracing revival or smug repudiation, is especially
evident in fashion. Although components of Hellenic
attire have appeared throughout Western fashion's
600-year history, it is only from the 1790s to the
1810s that classicized forms are embraced as the
prevailing mode. For most of the period that followed,
classical motifs and allusions were essentially
superficial. Not until the first decade of the
twentieth century, with the movement to an uncorseted
body, did a classical sensibility return to fashion
with any pronounced significance.'
'Hellenic dress, with its diversity of draped effects
based on reductive, orthogonal components, established
an apt paradigm for designers. While the modernists
gravitated toward the elegant economy of the
construction of dress provided by antique models,
postmodernists preferred to cite classical iconography
more explicitly. That such contradictory movements
incorporated the concepts and imagery of classical
dress suggests the protean nature of the style ... '
in Medieval Art. 'Animals, both real and

twisted into intricate patterns ... '
Four Ancient Books of Wales, 1868. 'This corpus is
one of the treasures of world literature. It is also
the only true source material for the study of Bardic
lore, which reputedly preserved the esoteric (and
long-lost) beliefs of the Druids. Largely written to
satisfy wealthy patrons, much of the subject matter is
related to mead-inspired battles, particularly the
renowned Gododin cycle. However, the poetry rises
above the gory combat and toadying to achieve an
artistic height that would not be reached for many
centuries. Some of the later works, which use
Christian themes as a jumping-off point, have an
almost haiku-like quality. The poems are infused
throughout with mystic clarity, strange flashes of
wisdom, and insight into humanity and
nature.' 'This book is very rare, and only

Kitano Tenjin Engi Emaki. Japanese art. 'Human
deceit, the wrath of nature, and the torment of hell
are all described here in a format uniquely suited to
dramatic narrative. Blending historical fact with
accounts of divine miracles, this set of five
handscrolls comprising the Kitano Tenjin Engi Emaki
juxtaposes written text with thirty-seven
illustrations to tell the tale of the gifted but
tragic courtier Sugawara Michizane (ca. 840–903) and
the origin of the Kitano Shrine in Kyoto. Michizane
was a celebrated statesman and scholar who ended his
life in exile after being slandered by a rival at
court. Seeking vengeance, his spirit caused natural
disasters and visited horrible fates upon his
persecutors until he was appeased by a posthumous
promotion to the highest civil rank and deification as
a Tenjin (heavenly deity), the most venerated kind of
Shinto god. The Kitano Shrine is one of the most
influential Shinto shrines in Japan, with ancillary

Christmas Story in art. 'The birth of Jesus Christ
and the events surrounding it are the subject of many
beautiful works of art in the Metropolitan Museum. We
present a few of them here, accompanied by the sacred
texts that inspired them, excerpts of which are read
by Philippe de Montebello, director of The
Metropolitan Museum of Art. Such religious works of
art helped the viewer meditate upon the sacred event.
In fact, some of these images depict the devout
persons who commissioned them as eyewitnesses to the
miracle. As we contemplate these works of art, we,
too, are moved by their story of "good tidings of
great joy" and "peace, goodwill toward men."
' 'Much Christmas imagery is taken from
descriptions in the Gospels of Saint Luke and Saint
Matthew. Over time, however, artists added details not
found in the Bible stories, including the animals of
the stable and even midwives. A cave or a classical
edifice sometimes replaces the ordinary stable. The
wise men from the East become kings, their number is
set at three (to match the three gifts cited in the
Gospel—gold, frankincense, and myrrh), and they
acquire physical characteristics that identify them
with different ages or races. Among the sources of
these details are such medieval texts as "The Golden
Legend" and "Meditations on the Life of Christ," both
written in the thirteenth century. Medieval plays and
pageants also influenced Christmas imagery ... '
Tales from the Russian, by Verra Xenophontovna
Kalamatiano de Blumenthal, 1903. Illustrated.
'In Russia, as elsewhere in the world, folklore is
rapidly scattering before the practical spirit of
modern progress. The traveling peasant bard or story
teller, and the devoted "nyanya," the beloved nurse of
many a generation, are rapidly dying out, and with
them the tales and legends, the last echoes of the
nation's early joys and sufferings, hopes and fears,
are passing away. The student of folk-lore knows that
the time has come when haste is needed to catch these
vanishing songs of the nation's youth and to preserve
them for the delight of future generations. In sending
forth the stories in the present volume, all of which
are here set down in print for the first time, it is
my hope that they may enable American children to
share with the children of Russia the pleasure of
glancing into the magic world of the old Slavic

Hudson Valley of New York State instilled in Len
Tantillo an appreciation for the past. Those early

Book of Enoch. 'The Book of Enoch, written during

heaven and hell, angels and devils, Enoch introduced
concepts such as fallen angels, the appearance of a
Messiah, Resurrection, a Final Judgement, and a
Heavenly Kingdom on Earth. Interspersed with this

of Western Europe 1600-1800. 'Gardens held a
central place in the history of seventeenth- and
eighteenth-century European art and architecture. Two
distinct types of gardens developed during this
period. In the seventeenth century, geometric
layouts—defined as formal or Baroque gardens—were
designed according to exact mathematical rules and
strict symmetry and planted with artificially trimmed
plants and trees. In the early eighteenth century, the
desire to make gardens more "natural" resulted in the
development of the landscape garden, based on
irregular, undulating forms. Each garden type was the
result of a different set of aesthetic values and
philosophical ideas. What distinguished the Baroque
garden from the earlier Renaissance garden tradition,
even though it consisted largely of the same elements,
was the concentration on dynamic spatial features and
splendor ... '

Church in the Southern Black Community 1780-1925.
'This compilation of printed texts from the libraries
at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
traces how Southern African Americans experienced and
transformed Protestant Christianity into the central
institution of community life. Coverage begins with
white churches' conversion efforts, especially in the
post-Revolutionary period, and depicts the tensions
and contradictions between the egalitarian potential
of evangelical Christianity and the realities of
slavery. It focuses, through slave narratives and
observations by other African American authors, on how
the black community adapted evangelical Christianity,
making it a metaphor for freedom, community, and
personal survival. An award from the Library of
Congress/Ameritech National Digital Library
Competition supported the digitization of 100 titles.

Enemy Number 1. 'From 1933 to 1934, America was
thrilled and terrorized by John Dillinger, a
desperado, a bank robber, a bad man no jail could
hold. His reputation grew until he was named the
country's first Public Enemy #1 and hunted by
virtually every cop in America. Operating during a
time of great hardship, Dillinger became a mythic
figure who struggled against authority and garnered
the support of many ordinary Americans, particularly
those hardest hit by the Great Depression. Dillinger
finally met his match in J. Edgar Hoover, who used the
outlaw's celebrity to burnish his own reputation and
that of his national law enforcement agency, the FBI.
Hoover won the day making sure in the process that the
moral of Dillinger's tale was "crime doesn't pay." '

Shaker Compendium, 1858. 'In respectful response
to the often-expressed desire of the public, to have
the information respecting Shakers and Shakerism, that
is now spread through some five or six volumes,
concentrated in a Compendium, this work has been
prepared by the author and compiler, in union with and
aided by, his Gospel friends ... ' The
Shakers 'were a unique Christian group who fled
persecution in England, arriving in America in the
18th Century. They believed that their founder, Ann
Lee, was the second coming of Christ. The Shakers
believed that God had both male and female aspects,
and practiced equality of men and women at all levels
in their organization. They were one of the first
churches in America to integrate their congregations,
involving both Blacks and Native Americans from the
very start. Known for simple values, hard work,
communal living and absolute celibacy, the Shakers
went into a long decline during the 20th Century. They
are only today represented by a few elders at one
farm. It is difficult not to be moved by their sincere
belief that any act, including dance, song, and even
manual labor, can be an act of worship. '

city (as Tbilisi was the most important administrative centre of Trans-
Caucasia), and the oriental city was getting more European. Tbilisi
increased significantly, new blocks of houses were built, old buildings
saved from medieval invasions were chainged by new ones. Europeanization

Henry O. Flipper. 'Born into slavery in Thomasville, Georgia, on
March 21, 1856, Henry Ossian Flipper was appointed to the U.S. Military
Academy at West Point, New York, in 1873. Over the next four years he
overcame harassment, isolation, and insults to become West Point's first
African American graduate and the first African American commissioned
officer in the regular U.S. Army. Flipper was stationed first at Fort
Sill, Oklahoma, and, later, at Forts Concho, Elliott, Quitman, and
Davis, Texas. He served as a signal officer and quartermaster, fought
Apaches, installed telegraph lines, and supervised the building of
roads. At Fort Sill, the young lieutenant directed the construction of a
drainage system that prevented the spread of malaria. Still known as
"Flipper's Ditch," it is now a national historic landmark.' 'In 1881,
while serving at Fort Davis, Flipper's commanding officer accused him of
embezzling $3,791.77 from commissary funds. Flipper denied the charge
and claimed that he had been framed by his fellow officers, who hated
him because he was African American. A court-martial found him not
guilty of embezzlement but convicted him of conduct unbecoming an
officer and ordered him dismissed from the Army.' 'After his
dishonorable discharge, Flipper fought to clear his name as he pursued a
distinguished career as an engineer and an expert on Spanish and Mexican
land law. In 1898, a bill reinstating him into the Army and restoring
his rank was introduced in Congress on his behalf. To bolster his case,
he sent Congressman John A. T. Hull, chairman of the House Committee on
Military Affairs, the letter displayed below along with a brief
supporting the bill's passage. Flipper's letter to Hull is an eloquent
statement professing his innocence and asking Congress for "that justice
which every American citizen has the right to ask." The bill and several
later ones were tabled, and Flipper died in 1940 without vindication,
but in 1976, the Army granted him an honorable discharge, and a review
board stated that he had been singled out because of his race. In 1999,
President Bill Clinton issued him a full pardon ... '

friends with Mexico's older great artists, including
Rivera, Tamayo, Siquieros, Orozco, and Kahlo. He
founded art schools and organizations which still
function and are of current importance. When the
President of Mexico last visited the Vatican, the one
gift from Mexico chosen as a gift to the Pope was a
small painting of a Mexican village painted by Maestro
Alfredo Zalce. ' 'Unlike other artists, Zalce has
spent an entire lifetime avoiding fame and fortune.He
simply wants to paint. His artistic versatility is
partially demonstrated by his total mastery in
producing art with oil, acrylic, batik, pencil,
watercolor, engraving, serigraph, bronze, stone, ink,
pastel, ceramic, monotype, and on and on. His art has
been exhibited in every country of the free world, and
his numerous gigantic murals and statues represent a
vital part of Mexican history. Zalce nevertheless
remains a humble and people-loving man who would
rather draw and paint than sell art. He hasn't dealt
with art galleries because they want him to paint what
they can sell, and he paints for enjoyment rather than
money. Nevertheless, celebrities and politicians
worldwide wait in line for years to obtain an artwork
from him. '

Propaganda. 'The story of the Nazi rise to power

propaganda as a vehicle of political salesmanship in a
mass market, and argued that it was a way of conveying
a message to the bulk of the German people, not to
of the Qin Dynasty. 'The brilliant reigns of the

What obstacles were overcome to cut the 60-foot-high
heads out of a wilderness mountain? Who possessed the
audacity -- or lunacy -- to create such a gargantuan
work?' 'The story of Mount Rushmore's creation is
as bizarre and wonderful as the monument itself. It is
the tale of a hyperactive, temperamental artist whose
talent and determination propelled the project, even
as his ego and obsession threatened to tear it apart.
It is the story of hucksterism and hyperbole, of a
massive public works project in the midst of an
economic depression. And it is the story of dozens of
ordinary Americans who suddenly found themselves
suspended high on a cliff face with drills and hammers
as a Danish sculptor they considered insane directed
them in the creation what some would call a
monstrosity, and others a masterpiece. '
