It possessed the special privileges of a Cinque Port, was strategically placed to serve successive monarchs as a military and naval base for their overseas expeditions, and its trading activities extended far and wide. [...] Evidence from standing structures, the archaeological record, and extensive documentary sources has been combined to trace Sandwich's development through the ages. New light has been shed on the location of the earliest settlement, the changes to the harbour and anchorage, the reasons for the unusual street pattern, and the relationship between town and royal castle. A survey of almost one hundred medieval houses brings out their urban form, and in conjunction with documents illustrates the different character of individual parts of the town and conjures up the material circumstances in which the inhabitants lived." - from rear.

Oxford University Presss, Oxford, 2010, ISBN:9780195365504 
CLINE, Eric H., (ed.). The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean (ca. 3000 - 1000 BC). Oxford : Oxford University Press, 2010. Second Printing. Pp (6),[vii]-xxxiii,(5),[3]-930,(10). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. ADDITIONAL SHIPPING CHARGES WILL BE REQUIREDFOR ORDERS OUTSIDE CANADA DUE TO ITS WEIGHT. Very good in dustjacket. 140. 00 "The Greek Bronze Age, roughly 3000 to 1000 BC, witnessed the flourishing of the Minoan and Mycenean civilizations, the earliest expansion of tradein the Aegean and wider Mediterranean Sea, the development of artistic tec hniques in a variety of media, and the evolution of early Greek religious practices and mythology. The period also witnessed a violent conflict in Asia Minor between warring peoples in the region, a conflict commonly believedto be the historical basis for Homer's Trojan War. The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean provides a detailed survey of these fascinating aspects of the period, and many others, in sixty-six newly commissioned articles. Divided into four parts, the handbook begins with Background and Definitions, which contains articles establishing the discipline in its historical,geographical, and chronological settings and in its relation to other disc iplines. The second section, Chronology and Geography, contains articles examining the Bronze Age Aegean by chronological period (Early Bronze Age, Middle Bronze Age, Late Bronze Age). Each of the periods are further subdivided geographically, so that individual articles are concerned with Mainland Greece during the Early Bronze Age, Crete during the Early Bronze Age, the Cycladic Islands during the Early Bronze Age, and the same for the Middle Bronze Age, followed by the Late Bronze Age. The third section, Thematic andSpecific Topics, includes articles examining thematic topics that cannot b e done justice in a strictly chronological/geographical treatment, including religion, state and society, trade, warfare, pottery, writing, and burialcustoms, as well as specific events, such as the eruption of Santorini and the Trojan War. The fourth section, Specific Sites and Areas, contains art icles examining the most important regions and sites in the Bronze Age Aegean, including Mycenae, Tiryns, Pylos, Knossos, Kommos, Rhodes, the northernAegean, and the Uluburun shipwreck, as well as adjacent areas such as the Levant, Egypt, and the western Mediterranean. Containing new work by an international team of experts, The Oxford Handbook of the Bronze Age Aegean represents the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date single-volume survey of the field. It will be indispensable for scholars and advanced students alike." (from the dj). Contents : Part I: Background and Definitions. 1. History of Research, James D. Muhly. 2.

194 COLLINSON, Howard Creel Documenting Design : Works on Paper in the European Collection of the RoyalOntario Museum. in dustjacket
Royal Ontario Museum / University of Toronto Press, Toronto, 1993, ISBN:0802005578 
COLLINSON, Howard Creel. Documenting Design : Works on Paper in the European Collection of the Royal Ontario Museum. Toronto, Buffalo, London : Royal Ontario Museum / University of Toronto Press, (1993). Pp (6),vii-viii,(1),2-120. Illustrated. 4to, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "To understandthe history of decorative arts and design it is necessary to study the way s in which designs are created and transmitted. Documenting Design seeks toshow how prints and drawings can demonstrate numerous aspects of the role of works on paper in the history of design. From early in the history of printmaking, prints were used to communicate designs both for specific objects and for ornamental patterns that could be applied to different kinds of objects, including architectural elements. A special category is the pattern- or model-book, intended to promote a particular style or approach to the design of furniture or decoration. Printed ornament sheets may also be self-contained works of art, unsuited to direct application to objects. Here, printed ornament becomes simply a genre of fine art, like landscape and portraiture, for example. This was especially so during the Rococo era. Countless buildings, rooms, objects, and decorative schemes - some of them famous in their day - no longer exist. Important design "events" such as festivities and ceremonies have often comprised great quantities of ephemeral architecture, decoration, and decorated objects. Such products of design can often only be studied in the prints and drawings that record their existence. Unlike prints, drawings can document and therefore present a unique insight into the process by which a designer develops and finalizes an idea. Drawings can also demonstrate the collaborative nature of the decorative arts: designers and makers were (and are) rarely identical. Many drawings have survived because they were contract drawings, meant to be shown to a potential customer or patron, and kept as a record of a transaction. Designs for metalwork were frequently drawn at full scale, both for maximum clarity and in order to create a vivid impression of the amounts of precious metal required. Since the 15th century, prints have been designed to be used as objects themselves, either in conjunction with other objects or as devices of communication. The variety of such works is vast; Documenting Design includes a theatre program, a menu design, and posters, among other types. Products ofgraphic design are often collected as documents of stylistic movements. Ex amples as various as Japonisme (late 19th century) and Psychedelic (1960s) are included. From Heinrich Aldegrever's jewel-like engraving Two Spoons and a Hunting Whistle of 1539 to Neo-Op Psychedelic Revival handbills of 1988, Documenting Design illuminates the importance of prints and drawings as documents of design history."
