This beautiful concertina book folds out to a stunning 136 cm panorama detailing the demise of some of our planet’s most dominant and long standing occupants only to be replaced by another group of breastfeeding placental creatures that would come to reign over the globe millions of years later. Micah Lidberg’s seamless use of line and adeptness with a limited color palette recalls the intricate patterns of traditional Japanese kimono design and the murals of 1930s New York Deco in a book that is really more of a work of art, to be coveted and cherished. The nature of the concertina book also means that it is easily displayed on a mantelpiece or shelving unit, and printed on heavy card stock, it will stand the test of time.
Scottish historian, Archibald Bower gives a fascinating account that
does not always work well with Vatican narratives and even during it’s
initial release, his writings were often discounted as propaganda.
On 25 March 1747 Bower issued proposals for printing by subscription his History of the Popes. He explained that researches designed to vindicate papal supremacy had had the opposite effect on him. He presented the first volume to the King 13 May 1748. The second volume appeared in 1751, and towards the end of 1753 the third volume, which brought down his history to the death of Pope Stephen II in 757. It was in 1754 that the first serious attack was made on the work, in a pamphlet by Alban Butler, published anonymously at Douai as Remarks on the two first volumes of the late Lives of the Popes; in letters from a Gentleman to a Friend in the Country.(Wikipedia)
GOOD. There is cracking to the outer joints, but each holding and fully
intact…V1 requires more care in handling, cover unattached to several
bands, but holding. There are also a couple of loose first endpages,
spines lack 5 of 6 title labels, but include volume lables, with one
showing a tear (missing piece is enclosed.)
