Photographs at the frontier : Aby Warburg in America 1895-1896 by Nicholas Mann( Book )

"Aby Warburg (1866-1929) belongs to the elite group of scholars and thinkers maturing at the turn of the nineteenth century who shaped the directions to be taken in the following hundred years. He is known not simply for his pioneering scholarship of Italian Renaissance art and culture, but for the totality of his approach, the interest he took in the whole process of what anthropologists now call symbolization, the creation of symbols by societies to represent their world. This book studies a crucial moment in his development, when, in 1895, diverted from his projected studies in Italy, he crossed to New York to attend his brother's wedding, then, encouraged by the contacts he had made with scholars of the Smithsonian Institution, made a trip deep into the Arizona desert to study Hopi culture at first hand. There is no doubt that this anthropological venture, though he did not formulate his thoughts about it on paper until much later, in a lecture of 1923, both reflected and helped to form an approach to the Italian Renaissance that was to revolutionize twentieth-century attitudes to culture. Warburg took photographs documenting the significant stages along his journey, which today make moving and instructive visual accounts of life in the American Southwest, both Western and native. The few images Warburg himself selected to illustrate his lecture of 1923 have long been known, but the remainder of the collection have only recently been gathered together. Reproduced, annotated and catalogued in this book for the first time, these photographs offer a timely opportunity to look not only at precious records of the growing western cities and of the Hopi as they lived a century ago, but the evolution of Warburg's thought and at his relationships with other scholars and with American anthropologists such as James Mooney and Frank H. Cushing. Leading scholars in their field have contributed the six essays in this volume, published in association with the Warburg Institute, London, and introduced by its director, Nicholas Mann. This important book also includes relevant excerpts from Warburg's unpublished diaries, and reproduces more than one hundred of his photographs and drawings." -- Publisher's description

Medieval and Renaissance scholarship : proceedings of the second European Science Foundation Workshop on the Classical Tradition in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance (London, the Warburg Institute, 27-28 November 1992) by European Science Foundation( Book )
18 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 224 libraries worldwide
This volume contains the expanded papers of the second workshop of the European Science Foundation Network on 'The Classical Tradition in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance', devoted to classical scholarship in the Middle Ages and the Early Renaissance (London, Warburg Institute, 27-28 November 1992). It focuses on commentaries on Horace, Lucan, Statius and Terence, Byzantine grammatical commentaries, accessus ad auctores, Old High German glosses, and pseudo-antique literature. A comprehensive bibliography, containing some thousand items, makes this an essential tool for anyone concerned with the diverse aspects of medieval and renaissance scholarship, in particular in relation to classical Greek and Latin texts, textual criticism, commentaries and glosses, and questions of attribution
My secret book by Francesco Petrarca( Book )
4 editions published in 2016 in Latin and English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
"It was by his own account during this period, sometime in 1342-43, when he was still resident at Vaucluse, that Petrarch was visited by a beautiful woman whom he quickly identified as Truth personified. They were immediately joined by an elderly man who turned out to be St Augustine (354-430 AD), to whose writings Petrarch had long been devoted. These facts are related in the Secretum, his Secret Book, which he apparently did not intend for publication, and to which he gives the subtitle "The private conflict of my thoughts." It records the extended discussion that took place in the silent presence of Truth between himself and the Saint, or more exactly between two characters named Franciscus and Augustinus: an intense but somewhat inconclusive three-day dialogue divided into three books and ranging widely over Petrarch's unhappiness and personal problems. Like most of his writings, and in particular those in Latin, the Secretum contains significant elements of autobiography; indeed it is the most intimate and the most fascinating of Petrarch's essays in self-scrutiny. Like most of his accounts of himself, it reveals a writer carefully crafting the image that he will bequeath to posterity, and in this respect is closely complementary to his vernacular lyrics, his letters, and the less personal representations of himself in his Latin treatises. And finally, like almost all his works, it shows evidence of an extended period of composition and revision, and thus obliges us to recognize the chronological distance between the events and the final form in which they are described."--Provided by publisher
