J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, 2003, ISBN:0892367253 
ABULAFIA, David, ed. The Mediterranean in History. Edited by David Abulafia. Texts by David Abulafia, Oliver Rackham, Marlene Suano, Mario Torelli, Geoffrey Rickman, John Pryor, Michel Balard, Molly Greene, Jeremy Black. Los Angeles : The J. Paul Getty Museum, (2003). First US Printing. Pp. (4),[5]-320. With 161 colour and 147 black-and-white illustrations. Large 8vo, bluecloth with gilt lettering to spine. "For over four thousand years the Medi terranean was the center of Western civilization. Geographically, it is a world in miniature, an inland sea whose shores encompass every type of terrain and climate -- barren deserts, fertile plains, snow-capped mountains, peninsulas, islands, and separate minor seas with distinct characters of their own. Historically, it has been the meeting place of the cultures of Europe, Asia, and Africa, the battleground of races and nations, and the focus of three great religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The distinguished Mediterranean scholar David Abulafia has brought together a team of eightleading specialists from many countries to tell this enthralling and compl ex story as a connected narrative: from a description of the physical setting, the prehistoric traders, and the struggle between Phoenicians, Greeks, and Etruscans ending in Roman victory, to a discussion of the post-Roman nations, the Christian powers in the north, the Islamic powers in the south, the domination by England and France, and, finally, the twentieth century, divided between war and mass tourism. This richly illustrated book offers contemporary historical writing at its best and will engage specialists, students, and general readers alike." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1. "Thephysical setting" (Oliver Rackham); 2. "The first trading empires: prehist ory to c.1000 BC" (Marlene Suano); 3. "The battle for the sea routes: 1000-300 BC" (Mario Torelli); 4. "The creation of Mare Nostrum: 300 BC - 500 AD"(Geoffrey Rickman); 5. "The Mediterranean breaks up: 500-1000" (John Pryor ); 6. "A Christian Mediterranean: 1000-1500" (Michel Balard); 7. "ResurgentIslam: 1500-1700" (Molly Greene); 8. "The Mediterranean as a battleground of the European powers: 1700-1900" (Jeremy Black); 9. "A globalized Mediterranean: 1900-2000" (David Abulafia).

If a country as limitless as this can ever be said to have posed for its portrait, certainly the photographer behind the camera wasAnsel Adams. And now he has given us this book. Here, in his prodigiously illustrated autobiography, completed just prior to his death in 1984, is Adams' testament of a life of dedication, adventure, achievement, remarkable friendships, plainspoken wisdom, and a concern for man and nature. It is a memoir of times spent with Alfred Stieglitz, Georgia O'Keeffe, Edward Weston, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Imogen Cunningham, Edwin Land, and so many more in the pantheon of the art and photography world. Here, not only in hisown words but also in photographs the world over (and many others never be fore pbulished), this extraordinary man steps forward to share with us his love of music, the beauty of the wilderness, loyalties and dreams, and thatclear-eyed vision that saw beyond the mountains the heart of America." - f rom the dustjacket.

ADKINS, Roy, and Lesley ADKINS. The War for All the Oceans : From Nelson atthe Nile to Napoleon at Waterloo. (New York) : Viking, (2007). First Print ing. Pp [i]-xxvi,[1]-534,+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, blue paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "From its very first page, The War for All the Oceans is an adventure story—a superb account of the naval war thatlasted from Napoleon's seizure of power in 1798 to the War of 1811 with th e United States. Most naval histories stop at Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.. Yet the Royal Navy took on almost every other nationthat had a rival fleet: the French, Spanish, Dutch, Danes, Russians, Turks and Ameri­cans. Shipping routes all over the world were guarded to ensure that trade with Britain was not interrupted, and, as Napoleon lost his empire, Britain formed solid, imperial foundations—all because the British navygained control of the oceans. Roy and Lesley Adkins bring this naval war t o life, writing about its heroes, ship maneuvers and shipboard life with equal relish. They paint a brilliant picture of the large fleet actions of the war, such as the battles of the Nile and Copenhagen; duels between pairs of ships, such as the HMS Shannon and USS Chesapeake; and combined naval and army operations like the disas­trous Walcheren expedition. They provide aringside seat to the earliest attacks with torpedoes and rock­ets and a fr esh look at our own country in a brilliant rendering of the War of 1811, fought in our nation's infancy. As in Nelson's Trafalgar, the Adkinses delight in the details, drawing vivid portraits of the sailors as well as the press-gangs, prostitutes and spies who populated this epic war." - from the dj. Underlining in pen on page 126, else very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
