A history of the world in twelve maps by Jerry Brotton( Book )

40 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A fascinating look at twelve maps-from Ancient Greece to Google Earth-and how they changed our world In this masterful study, historian and cartography expert Jerry Brotton explores a dozen of history's most influential maps, from stone tablet to vibrant computer screen. Starting with Ptolemy, "father of modern geography," and ending with satellite cartography, A History of the World in 12 Maps brings maps from classical Greece, Renaissance Europe, and the Islamic and Buddhist worlds to life and reveals their influence on how we-literally-look at our present world. As Brotton shows, the long road to our present geographical reality was rife with controversy, manipulation, and special interests trumping science. Through the centuries maps have been wielded to promote any number of imperial, religious, and economic agendas, and have represented the idiosyncratic and uneasy fusion of science and subjectivity. Brotton also conjures the worlds that produced these notable works of cartography and tells the stories of those who created, used, and misused them for their own ends"--
The Renaissance bazaar : from the Silk Road to Michelangelo by Jerry Brotton( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jerry Brotton's controversial study of the Renaissance disputes the consensus notion of a single Renaissance. The author argues that this was a vibrant period when western and eastern cultures mixed to great mutual benefit
Trading territories : mapping the early modern world by Jerry Brotton( Book )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this generously illustrated book, Jerry Brotton documents the dramatic changes in the nature of geographical representation which took place during the sixteenth century, and suggests that they tell us a great deal about the transformation of European culture at the end of the early modern era. He examines the age's fascination with maps, charts, and globes as both texts and artifacts that provided their owners with a promise of gain, be it intellectual, political, or financial

Global interests : Renaissance art between East and West by Lisa Jardine( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lisa Jardine and Jerry Brotton raise questions about the formation of cultural identity in Western Europe. Through an analysis of the circulation of art and luxury objects, the authors challenge the view that Renaissance culture defined itself in large part against an exotic, dangerous, always marginal East. Featuring more than seventy illustrations, including many in color and some published for the first time, their book provides fascinating insights into the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Durer, Holbein, Pisanello, and Titian."--Jacket

23 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this wide-ranging exploration of the Renaissance, Jerry Brotton shows the period as a time of unprecedented intellectual excitement, cultural experimentation, and interaction on a global scale, alongside a darker side of religion, intolerance, slavery, and massive inequality of wealth and status.-publisher description
The Sultan and the Queen : the untold story of Elizabeth and Islam by Jerry Brotton( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long before the Barbary pirates challenged Thomas Jefferson, English merchants traveled to Marrakesh to trade gunpowder for sugar. Islam and the West crossed paths much earlier than we think--and originally the Muslims had the upper hand. When Queen Elizabeth was excommunicated by the pope in 1570, she found herself in an awkward predicament. England had always depended on trade. Now its key markets were closed to her Protestant merchants, while the staunchly Catholic king of Spain vowed to take her throne. In a bold decision, she set her sights on the East. She sent an emissary to the shah of Iran, wooed the king of Morocco, and entered into an unprecedented alliance with the powerful Ottoman sultan Murad III. This marked the beginning of an extraordinary alignment with Muslim powers and of economic and political exchanges with the Islamic world of a depth not again experienced until the modern age. By the late 1580s, thousands of English merchants, diplomats, sailors, and privateers were plying their trade from Morocco to Persia. To finance these expeditions, they created the first-ever joint stock company, a revolutionary new business model that balanced risk and reward. Londoners were gripped with a passion for the Orient. Elizabeth became hooked on sugar as new words like "candy," "turquoise," and "tulip" entered the English language. Marlowe offered up Tamburlaine and Shakespeare wrote Othello six month after the first Moroccan ambassador's visit. In this groundbreaking book, Jerry Brotton reveals that Elizabethan England's relationship with the Muslim world was far more amicable--and far more extensive--than we have ever appreciated as he tells the riveting story of the traders and adventurers who first went East to seek their fortunes. -- Inside jacket flaps
The sale of the late king's goods : Charles I and his art collection by Jerry Brotton( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set against the backdrop of war, revolution and regicide, and moving from London to Venice, Mantua, Madrid, Paris and the Low Countries, The Sale of the Late King's Goods explores the formation and dispersal of King Charles I's art collection, one of the finest England has ever seen." "When the English monarchy was restored in 1660, King Charles II ordered the repossession of many of these artworks, but despite his eagerness to settle political scores, the face of collecting had been changed forever. The Sale of the Late King's Goods examines the abiding relationship between art and power, revealing how the current Royal Collection emerged from this turbulent period, and paints its own vivid and dramatic picture of one of the greatest lost collections in English history."--BOOK JACKET
This Orient Isle : Elizabethan England and the Islamic world by Jerry Brotton( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1570, when it became clear she would never be gathered into the Catholic fold, Elizabeth I was excommunicated by the Pope. On the principle that 'my enemy's enemy is my friend', this marked the beginning of an extraordinary English alignment with the Muslim powers who were fighting Catholic Spain in the Mediterranean, and of cultural, economic and political exchanges with the Islamic world of a depth not again experienced until the modern age. England signed treaties with the Ottoman Porte, received ambassadors from the kings of Morocco and shipped munitions to Marrakesh. By the late 1580s hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Elizabethan merchants, diplomats, sailors, artisans and privateers were plying their trade from Morocco to Persia." -- Publisher's description
Mapping the world( Visual )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This three-part series tells the epic and beautiful story of cartography, from the discoveries of the early cartographers to the tools that have given us Google Earth and in-car satellite navigation. Each episode addresses a basic technological challenge of map-making and, in the process, sheds light on the wider world: on issues of power, romance, wars and exploration. In tracing the seismic shifts in the history of map-making and understanding what drove the map-makers themselves, this series ensures that we will never look at a map in the same way again.

Le bazar Renaissance : comment l'Orient et l'Islam ont influencé l'Occident by Jerry Brotton( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in French and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Renaissance a vu des changements majeurs, dont les impacts dessinent encore le monde dʹaujourdʹhui. Jerry Brotton raconte cette période remarquable dans un livre qui place lʹépanouissement européen dans un contexte révélateur. Cet ouvrage se place au cœur dʹun grand débat et a été largement relayé comme une contribution à faire connaître, et comprendre, la part que lʹIslam a joué dans la Renaissance européenne. Cʹest par le contact de lʹEurope avec le reste du monde, et particulièrement avec le riche et cultivé Orient, que la Renaissance a pu être ce quʹelle a été. Les européens se percevaient alors dans le miroir de lʹOrient, lʹEmpire Ottoman leur a fait prendre conscience de leur position relative, et cʹest durant cette période par exemple quʹils se sont pour la première fois nommés "européens". Ce livre est le premier récit concis et clair de la Renaissance comme un phénomène global, et non comme un évènement purement européen
