Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1972, ISBN:0870703843 
AMBASZ, Emilio (ed.). Italy : The New Domestic Landscape : Achievements andProblems of Italian Design. New York : The Museum of Modern Art, in collab oration with Centro Di, Florence, (April 1972).

With 520 illustrations (124 in color). 4to, white paper covered boards, black lettering to spine, in a printed glassine dustjacket with fivepieces of cut-out objects illustrative of Italian design inserted into jac ket as issued. "During the last decade, the emergence of Italy as the dominant force in design has had a profound influence in Europe and the Americas. This phenomenon is important not only becasue of the high quality and diversity of the forms produced, but also because it has generated a lively debate on the sociocultural implications of product design, raising questionsof vital concern to designers throughout the world. For many designers, th e aesthetic quality of individual objects intended for private consumption has become irrelevant in the face of such pressing problems as poverty, urban decay, and the pollution of the environment now encountered in all industrialized countries. Consequently, they are increasingly shifting the focusof their attention from the well-designed object to man's total environmen t, seeing the designer's function as one that can mold patterns of behaviorby creating new settings for freeer, mor adaptable life styles. [...] This publication, issued in conjunction with a major exhibition at The Museum o f Modern Art, is the first to deal comprehensively with these challenging developments. Over 150 objects of Italian design of the past ten years have been selceted for the show and all are reproduced in color or black-and-white, as are the dozen environments by well-known Italian designers speciallycommissioned for the occasion."

16 ANGLO, Sydney, (ed.) Damned Art : Essays in the Literature of Witchcraft. First Edition in dustjacket

ANGLO, Sydney, (ed.). The Damned Art : Essays in the Literature of Witchcraft. London : Routledge & Kegan Paul, (1977). First Edition. Pp (4),v-viii,1-258,(2). Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Learned demonological literature, though frequently cited, is little read; and facile generalisation about such material has preceded the detailed study of individual texts. The Damned Art seeks to reverse this process. Only indirectly concerned with the unanswerable problems of popular mentality which have largely occupied recent students of medieval and renaissance witch persecution, the book approaches witchcraft and demonology through literary records. The works discussed deal not with the inchoate prejudices of the multitude but rather with contemporary theories propounded by those who sought either to justify, or to refute, persecution. Eight scholars of differing interests, and with different approaches to their subject, examine a selection of important, representative witchcraft texts - published in England, France, Germany, Italy and America - setting them within their intellectual context,and analysing both their style and argument. Thus not only the emotionalis m, but also the methodology of witchcraft belief is set before the modern reader; and the latter is, perhaps, even more harrowing than the former." (from he dj). Contents : 1. Evident authority and authoritative evidence : The malleus maleficarum (by Sydney Anglo). 2.

London and Oxford : The German Historical Institute, London, 1991. First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xii,1-507,(1). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Studies of the German Historical Institute, London series. "This book dealswith the court as a crucial center of government and politics, and as the dominant focus for the ruling elites. Princes, Patronage, and the Nobility shows how the early modern court gradually developed from the medieval royal household, and how it functioned in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Comparing England, Germany, France, Spain as well as the Netherlands and Italy, the editors find that several common themes emerge: the problem ofintegrating a number of often vastly different provinces and principalitie s through the attraction of a court; the capital city's function as the basis of the court and as its rival; the role of the Court during the great religious conflicts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; and the courtas an instrument for domesticating the nobility and a stronghold of aristo cratic influence." - from the dj. 1.
