Gluttony by Francine Prose( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 905 libraries worldwide
"Here, novelist and critic Francine Prose serves up a marvelous banquet of witty and engaging observations on the most delicious of deadly sins. Prose traces how our negative notions of gluttony have evolved along with our ideas about salvation and damnation, health and illness, life and death. At the same time, Prose reminds us that it is also an affirmation of pleasure and passion. "The broad, shiny face of the glutton," Prose writes, "has been and continues to be the mirror in which we see ourselves, our hopes and fears, our darkest dreams and deepest desires." Never have we delved more deeply into this mirror than in this insightful and stimulating book. Book jacket."--Jacket

Mielziner : master of modern stage design by Mary C Henderson( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 855 libraries worldwide
"Jo Mielziner (1901-76) was the most highly acclaimed scenic and lighting designer of the American theatre of the twentieth century. Spanning some five decades, his unusually long career coincided with the flowering of modern theatre in the United States, with the result that he designed many of its most famous productions. So protean were Mielziner's talents that in some years during Broadway's peak, in a single season more than a half-dozen hit shows bore his scenery on the boards." "Mielziner: Master of Modern Stage Design, authorized by the Mielziner estate and published in association with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, is illustrated with sketches and fully rendered designs never previously published, and graced with a foreword by former New York Times theatre critic Frank Rich, this book provides a long-overdue, definitive account of Mielziner's life and work as the preeminent theatre artist of his time."--Jacket

Before Victoria : extraordinary women of the British Romantic era by Elizabeth Campbell Denlinger( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
"It might not have been the revolution that Mary Wollstonecraft called for in A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), but the Romantic era did witness a dramatic change in women's lives. Combining literary and cultural history, this illustrated volume brings back to life a remarkable, though frequently overlooked, group of women who transformed British culture and inspired new ways of understanding feminine roles and female sexuality." "Now-obscure female astronomers, photographers, sculptors, and mathematicians share these pages with celebrated writers such as Mary Shelley; her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft; and Mary Robinson, who in addition to being a novelist and actress was also the mistress of the Prince of Wales. This book also makes full use of The New York Public Library's extensive collections, including graphic works and caricatures from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, manuscripts, hand-colored illustrations, broadsides, drawings, oil paintings, notebooks, albums, and early photographs. These images depict these women, their works, and their social and domestic worlds."--Jacket
