A History of Booksellers


$62.5


Henry Curwen (1845 1892) was a journalist and author who became editor of the Times of India. First published in 1874, A History of Booksellers aimed at providing an informative but entertaining picture of British bookselling and publishing, by means of biographies of the major publishing houses and their output. He begins with a general survey of publishing and bookselling from Roman times to the nineteenth century, including a discussion of copyright legislation. It is clear that by 1800 the demand for books was considerable and growing: Alexander Donaldson, who specialised in cheap reprints of popular works, though repeatedly sued over copyright by other publishers, died in 1794 a very rich man. Many of the firms Curwen discusses are still well-known names, such as Longmans, Chambers, Butterworths and W.H. Smith. He concludes with anecdotes on some of the better known representatives of the provincial book trade. *Author: Curwen, Henry *Series Title: Cambridge Library Collection: Printing and Publishing History (Paperback) *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 526 *Publication Date: 2010/10/28 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.51 x 8.50 x 1.17 inches

Eisenstein-Sound Years (Criterion Collection)


Eisenstein-Sound Years (Criterion Collection)


$43.07


Sergei Eisenstein, long regarded as a pioneer of film art, changed cinematic strategies halfway through his career. Returning from Hollywood and Mexico in the late 1930s, he found that the potential of the Soviet Revolution had devolved into totalitarianism and Stalins ever-tightening rule demanded that future Eisenstein projects be works of propaganda. Leaving behind the densely edited, montage style of celebrated silents like Battleship Potemkin and October, Eisenstein turned to historical sources, grandiose scores, contradictory audiovisuals, and theatrical sets for his work in the sound era. This trio of rousing action epics reveals a deeply unsettling portrait of the Soviet Union under Stalin, and also provide battle scene blueprints for filmmaking giants from Laurence Olivier (in Henry V) to Akira Kurosawa (in Seven Samurai). The Criterion Collection is proud to present Alexander Nevsky and Ivan The Terrible, parts I and II, in a Special Edition three-disc box set. Alexander Nevsky (1938, 108 minutes) Eisenstein drew on history, Russian folk narratives and the techniques of Walt Disney to create this epic tale of Teutonic knights vanquished by Prince Alexander Nevskys tactical brilliance. Widely imitated, the Battle on the Ice scene remains one of the most famous audio-visual experiments in film history, perfectly blending action with the rousing score of Sergei Prokofiev. Ivan The Terrible Part 1 and 2 Eisenstein filmed two parts of his planned trilogy on the troubled 16th-century Tsar who united Russia. Visually stunning and powerfully acted, Ivan The Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into madness of, essentially, a dictator. Though pleased with the first installment, Stalin detected the portrait in the second film with its summary and secret police promptly banned it. Part 1 (1945, 99 minutes) Part 2 (1958, 85 minutes)

Henry Purcell and the London Stage


Henry Purcell and the London Stage


$62.5


This book was the first comprehensive survey of Purcells dramatic music. It is concerned as much with the London theatre world – playhouses, poets, actors, singers, producers – as with the music itself. Purcell wrote music for more than fifty plays of various types, most of them produced at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, between 1690 and 1695. The songs, dialogues, choruses, act tunes and larger musical scenes are often active participants in the spoken drama, not simply grafted-on entertainments. The extraordinary semi-operas – Dioclesian, King Arthur, and The Fairy-Queen – are placed in the context of a theatre that thrived mainly on plays that, though less lavish, were no less musical. The traditional picture of a composer trapped within a degraded musical society, his natural predilection for opera ignored, is redrawn to show a consummate dramatist exploiting a remarkably musical theatre. *Author: Price, C. A./ Price, Curtis Alexander *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 404 *Publication Date: 2009/03/19 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.07 x 6.04 x 1.00 inches

Henry VII


Henry VII


$38.95


The importance of Henry VII is the subject of heated debate. Did his reign mark the start of a new era, or was its prevailing characteristic continunity with the past? The pamphlet: ? emphasizes the lasting political stability established during the reign? demonstrates the difference between Henrys policies and those of the Yorkists? shows how successors built on Henrys legacy? argues that victory at Bosworth in 1485 can be seen as initiating a genunine Tudor revolution in government. *Author: Grant Alexander/ Grant, Alexander *Series Title: Lancaster Pamphlets *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 64 *Publication Date: 1985/10/31 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.50 x 8.50 x 0.14 inches
