London - George Rowney and Co., 1885 Book. Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of Turner's illustrations. Containing eleven colouredplates mounted andframed in card (collated, missing five). Including illustrations of cathedrals, coastal scenes, and more. Turner's talent was recognised early in his life. Financial independence allowed Turner to innovate freely; his mature work is characterised by a chromatic palette and broadly applied atmospheric washes of paint. According to David Piper's The Illustrated History of Art, his later pictures were called fantastic puzzles. However, Turner was recognised as an artistic genius: the influential English art critic John Ruskin described him as the artist who could most stirringly and truthfully measure the moods of Nature.

Jack

Alphonse Daudet

  • Book condition: Good
  • Quantity available: 1
Paris - Ernest Flammarion, 1900 Book. Good. Hardcover. A collection of two novels by Alphonse Daudet: Jack and Tartarin de Tarascon. Alphonse Daudet (13 May 1840 16 December 1897) was a French novelist. The year 1872 brought the famous Aventures prodigieuses de Tartarin de Tarascon, and the three-act play L'Arlesienne. But Fromont jeune et Risler aine (1874) at once took the world by storm. It struck a note, not new certainly in English literature, but comparatively new in French. His creativeness resulted in characters that were real and also typical. Jack, a novel about an illegitimate child, a martyr to his mother's selfishness, which followed in 1876, served only to deepen the same impression. Condition: In quarter calf leather bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound with slight rubbing. There is some bumping to the tops and tails of the spines. Joints are starting but firm. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are generally bright and clean with some minor age-toning and mild sca ... Read more

ont> Chatto and Windus : London, 1995 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A First Edition of Murdoch's novel 'Jackson's Dilemma'.
