10 Skopas in Samothrace (The Katharine Asher Engel Lectures) Lehmann, Phyllis William
Northampton, MA, U.S.A. Smith College 1973 Soft Cover Very Good 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
85 pages, consisting of 15 pages of text, about 19 pages of notes, & 52 illustrations. Book is in Very Good condition. From the text: "The Island of Samothrace, situated in the northernmost part of the windswept Aegean...was celebrated in antiquity for its mystery cult. To it came men and women, slaves and free men, to be initiated into noctural rites in honor of the Megaloi Theoi, the Great Gods of Samothrace - rites by means of which they believed that they would be protected, especially at sea, that they would become more pious, and which seem to have held out to them the hope of immortality. The fame of the Sanctuary and its cult, the specific rites and content of which might not be revealed to the uninitiate, caused it to be one of the first major classical sites to be excavated in modern times, along with such legendary places as Olympia, Troy, and Mycenae."

11 The Architecture of Baltimore: A Pictorial History Howland, Richard H.; Spencer, Eleanor P.
The John Hopkins Press 1953 Hard Copy Very Good+ Good 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall Inscribed By Author
The John Hopkins Press, 1953. Presentation copy inscribed by author on front flyleaf as follows: "For David and Helen Robinson, with warm greetings from one of the authors, and a deep sense of appreciation for their kindnesses when he first came to Baltimore, as well as helping him to learn about it and love it. [signed] Dick Howland March 1953". Book is in Very Good+ condition: spine lightly cocked; lightly faded on spine; binding is tight, and pages are clean. Dust jacket is in Good condition: chips, tears and creasing on edges and folds; now in mylar-type protective cover. From the dust jacket: Beginning with a consideration of Baltimore's early Georgian tradition, the authors continue with a thorough examination of the Classical revival of the early nineteenth century. Through illustraiton and story they trace the great expansion of the ciyt during this period -- and expansion which brought about an equally great production of architectural masterpieces by such famous designers as Maxzimilien Godefroy, Benjamin Latrobe, and Robert Mills. This is followed by a careful appraisal of the later ninteenth-century architecture with its melange of styles ranging from the Gothic Revival to the newer eclecticism of Richard upjohn and Stanford White. New full-page photographs, taken especially for this volume, illustrate superbly such architectural landmarks as Homewood House, built by Charles Carroll, Jr., Latrobe's Roman Catholic Cathedral, and the Ross Winans House designed by Stanford White. Here is an exciting historic record of the building of a city -- a book which all lovers of Americana will treasure."

14 The Villas of Palladio Trager, Phillip; Scully, Vincent
Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A. New York Graphic Society 1986 0821216392 / 9780821216392 Stated 1st Edition Very Good Very Good 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall Inscribed By Artist
New York Graphic Society, Boston, 1986. Stated 1st Edition. Inscribed by artist Philip Trager on title page as follows: "To Marcia, With warm regards [signed] Phil November 1986". Book is in Very Good condition: top edge a little dirty; pages a little wavy; binding is tight and square, and pages are clean and bright. Dust jacket is in Very Good condition: a little dirty; one chip on bottom edge of front flap fold; not price-clipped. From the dust jacket: "Photographer Philip Trager has managed to lift the Paladian villas out of the developed environment that now surrounds them, portraying these magnificent structures as they originally appeared in the virgin countryside of Renaissance Italy. At the same time, Trager's photographs emphasize the elegance of the villas' geometric forms so lovingly emulated by the postmodernists. The duality of vision prompts architect Michael Graves, in his introduction to this volume, to celebrate these splendid back-and-white images as a rewarding contribution to the existing commentary on Palladio. Written by distinguished architectural historian Vincent Scully, the text...places the architect and his works in context of their times. Scully also offers brief, lively introducitons to each of the villas."
