Imagined corners : exploring the world's first atlas by Paul Binding( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 278 libraries worldwide
"The Theatrum orbis terrarum was a watershed publication; it changed lives and altered perceptions for ever. Published in Antwerp in 1570, it did something no previous book had done: here was the world in all its component parts, the chance to see our planet as a place of staggering variety and ultimate unity. It was the world's first-ever atlas." "Paul Binding has immersed himself in the Antwerp that produced Ortelius and his atlas, and has drawn on a mass of letters, personal documents, maps and pictures in order to bring it to life. He views Ortelius's life-work against the stormy backdrop and often violent events of the period, and relates his achievement to contemporaneous thinkers and artists. Imagined Corners stands as a tribute to the human need to impose order and reason on an all-too-turbulent world."--BOOK JACKET
Hans Christian Andersen : European witness by Paul Binding( Book )
10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
"Rarely does an American or European child grow up without an introduction to Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling," "The Princess and the Pea," or "Thumbelina." Andersen began publishing his fairy tales in 1835, and they brought him almost immediate acclaim among Danish and German readers, followed quickly by the French, Swedes, Swiss, Norwegians, British, and Americans. Ultimately he wrote more than 150 tales. And yet, Paul Binding contends in this incisive book, Andersen cannot be confined to the category of writings for children. His work stands at the very heart of mainstream European literature. The author considers the entire scope of Andersen's prose, from his juvenilia to his very last story. He shows that Andersen's numerous novels, travelogues, autobiographies, and even his fairy tales (notably addressed not to children but to adults) earned a vast audience because they distilled the satisfactions, tensions, hopes, and fears of Europeans as their continent emerged from the Napoleonic Wars. The book sheds new light on Andersen as an intellectual, his rise to international stardom, and his connections with other eminent European writers. It also pays tribute to Andersen's enlightened values-values that ensure the continuing appeal of his works"--
