The encyclopedia of ornament by Henry Shaw( Book )

2 editions published between 1904 and 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1842, this volume made an important contribution to the nineteenth-century Gothic Revival, during which English artists rediscovered decorative styles from their country's medieval past. Few published sources of the Victorian era offered information on historic designs, and The Encyclopedia of Ornament was warmly received and widely praised for the meticulous rendering of its plates. Modern-day graphic artists and designers, art historians, and students of the history of style and decoration will likewise prize this extensive treasury of authentic designs. Arranged in chronological order, this richly illustrated compilation traces a long history of ornamentation: ironwork of the thirteenth century; painted tiles of the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries; wood carvings and panels of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; fifteenth-century ornamental drapery; sixteenth-century book bindings; designs for jewelry, plate, and other decorative items by Hans Holbein and his contemporaries; lace and needlework of the seventeenth century; and architectural ornaments and stained glass of various periods from English and French cathedrals

Illuminated ornaments : selected from manuscripts and early printed books, from the sixth to the seventeenth century by Henry Shaw( Book )

1 edition published in 1833 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the same vein, Beckwith comments: the first of many British 19th-century studies of illuminated manuscripts, such books opened the public's eyes to the aesthetic and historical value of manuscript arts. The format was a model for 19th-century studies of the history and methods of illumination, a landmark in the diffusion of information about manuscript arts and their history and made a significant contribution to Victorian bibliomania. This may in fact be the very first book on illumination and its history to have color plates, and can certainly be said to have had a profound influence on early Victorian taste in and appreciation of illuminated manuscripts."--abebooks

Records also show the development of the School for Gardening and the Annual Report in its early years. Professional papers show Trelease's involvement with the Special Libraries Association, the Botanical Society of America, and the Academy of Science of St. Louis. Research papers document his research on a wide range of subjects, especially research on Pronuba and Yucca with Charles V. Riley. Some of Riley's notes and correspondence on this subject are with those of Trelease. Expeditions include the Harriman Expedition to Alaska in 1898, and Trelease's field expeditions to Mexico
