The royal portrait : image and impact by Jennifer Scott( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the role portraiture has played in promoting the public and private face of monarchs from Richard II to Queen Elizabeth II. It investigates the role the royal portrait has played in fashion and politics across 600 years of official and unofficial image-making. The author uses specific works, discussed in detail, as a way to explore the parallels between historic and present day image-making, and reveals a type of iconography far more ground-breaking than its traditions would suggest.--Publisher's description
Canaletto in Venice by Martin Clayton( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his lifetime Canaleuto's paintings of the city of his birth found in immediate market amongst collectors, particularly the British nobility on the Grand Tour." "This books brings together 14 of Canaletto's dazzling paintings of the Grand Canal, and 71 of his drawings of Venice and the lagoon. It features fascinating studies of life in 18th-century Venice, from canal-side workshops to the bustling festivities of Ascension Day around St. Mark's Square, with the effects of sunlight, water and atmosphere exquisitely captured." "By setting these works against contemporary photographs of Venice, taken from the viewpoints used by the artist, this book explores how Canaletto manipulated familiar Venetian topography to create what have become the archetypal images of the most beautiful city in the world." "Includes an annotated map of the city, detailing Canaletto's viewpoints, and 159 illustrations, 121 in colour."--Jacket

The crown jewels by Anna Keay( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crown Jewels have often been called "the finest jewelry collection in the world." This book provides a dazzling mix of art and photography with entirely new views plus spectacular details. Individual pieces, gems, and carefully selected groups of objects: the royal jewels can be seen here as never before. The priceless objects in the collection were created to be the physical embodiment of English sovereignty, and their story is that of the English monarchy itself-from the spoon used to pour out the holy oil of St. Thomas Becket at the coronation to the crown that King Edward VIII took into exile after he abdicated in 1936. In addition to the specially taken photographs of the jewels there are paintings and photographs of monarchs wearing the regalia, coronation ceremonies, and royal events during which items from the collection are used. The Crown Jewels are visited at the Tower of London by more than two million people each year. Based on original research and written by an expert in English court history, this is the definitive record of a most remarkable collection

The Royal Collection has the most important holding of Fenton's work in the world, with some 350 of his photographs of the Crimean conflict. This new publication brings all these images together and highlights the impact that such images had on those back in Britain, seeing in them the realities of war documented in pictures for the first time."--Back cover

Leonardo da Vinci : the mechanics of man by Martin Clayton( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leonardo da Vinci is among the greatest draftsmen ever to have lived, and his anatomical drawings combine his almost unsurpassed artistic skill with his dexterity in dissection and his extensive knowledge of the structures he uncovered. Now in paperback, Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Man reproduces Leonardo’s Manuscript A, the written record of a campaign of human dissections completed during the winter of 1510–11. Although his studies of human anatomy span more than twenty-five years, this is the only group of drawings in which he approached complete coverage of the human form, and it also represents his finest work in this area. Each of the drawings is reproduced to its original size and includes Leonardo’s extensive annotations made in his distinctive “mirror-writing.” Accompanying each of the drawings is a second, smaller reproduction with the text in English-language translation, rendering the thinking behind these beautiful drawings accessible to the general reader." --Publisher description
Fungi by David Norman Pegler( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo da Vinci, anatomist by Leonardo( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonardo has long been recognised as one of the great artists of the Renaissance, but he was also a pioneer in the understanding of human anatomy. He intended to publish his ground-breaking work in a treatise on anatomy, and had he done so his discoveries would have transformed European knowledge of the subject. But on Leonardo's death in 1519 the drawings remained a mass of undigested material among his private papers and their significance was effectively lost to the world for almost 400 years
