A world history of photography. by. Rosenblum, Naomi. Books for People with Print Disabilities. A World History of Photography encompasses the entire range of the medium, from the camera lucida to the latest computer technology, and from Europe and the Americas to the Far East. It investigates all aspects of photography - aesthetic, documentary, commercial, and technical - while placing it in historical context.

Revered by Chinese connoisseurs and literati since the Tang dynasty (618-907) or earlier, scholars' rocks have been little known in the West. As refined indoor kin of the more widely recognized Chinese garden stones, these rocks intended for studio display combine the charm of microcosm with sheer abstract beauty; whether regarded as fantastical miniature landscapes or as nonrepresentational sculpture, they invite and reward contemplation. The book accompanies an exhibition organized by Robert D. Mowry, curator of Chinese art, Arthur M. Sackler Museum, Harvard University Art Museums. Essays provide rich insights into the rocks' history and social context, as well as their web of poetic, religious, and philosophical associations. Along with an abundance of research on Chinese records, the book offers ground-breaking scientific analyses in an effort to establish materials and provenance of the rocks, and of their accompanying stands, which are often regarded as minor works of art in their own right. Color plates of the eighty rocks in the exhibition are accompanied by full descriptions and extensive background materials. Maps, tables, graphs, and comparative figures further enhance this striking foundation study. With contributions by Eugene Farrell and C. Mei-An Tsu, Alan Jay Kaufman, Claudia Brown, Jan Stuart, Hugh T. Scogin, Jr., and Richard Rosenblum.

Lbe
WORLDS WITHIN WORLDS is a thoughtful, scholarly work that provides in-depth, intriguing information on the stones, via the essays that make up the first part of the book. The second part catalogs the exhibit, with clear photos and detailed descriptions. The book is now out-of-print, but it is well worth acquiring since there is probably no other text in English that gives so much information on the stones while setting them within their historical, philosophical, and artistic contexts.

Chinese Scholars' Rocks are magical but the information here is technical, providing detail and observation that goes far beyond casual observation. If you're interested in the geology and the science as well as the art, you will find this book fascinating.

Scholars' stones are magic objects. They open the mind to the realms of poetry, of religion and mythology, of literature and philosophy, of art. This magic is quite destroyed by this book's massive erudition. It is like a too ambitious teacher of literature who destroys poetry by analysing and disecting it. The illustrations are meager, they are after all of secondary importance - the only satisfying one is on the front cover. This book is recommended for all those who are not interested in the magic of its subject.
