A facsimile reprint of the orignal Routledge edition of1919. "The seventeenth century saw a profound change in the condition and character of women which is closely examined in its economic aspects in this work, originally published in 1919. For the sake of claritv the author divides the organisation of production in which women were employed into three iypes, domestic industry, family industry, and capitalistic industry. Thefirst two had prevailed throughout the middle ages but the last made a rap id advance during the course of the seventeenth century and it was this that basically altered the character of working women. While hitherto they hademployed themselvees domestically they had now, as the opportunities to do so diminished, to become dependent upon a wage - which was for many years deplorably low."

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.

Index. 4to, tan cloth, black lettering to spine. "This book is the most comprehensive survey of tablet weaving techniques available. A traditional form of band weaving whose basic equipment has not changed for at least 2,300 years, tablet weaving does not require a loom; instead, the warp yarns are raised and lowered by turning the flat tablets, or cards, through which they are threaded. Although practical considerationslimit the width of the bands that can be woven in this way, the tablets ca n be manipulated in an almost endless variety of combinations, making it possible to produce many, often complex, weave structures and patterns."

Starting, Finishing, And Varying the Width of a Band. 8. Warp-Twined Bands and Their Characteristics. 9. Warp-Twined Bands With all Cords Equally Twined Between Successive Picks. 10.

Pp (6),7-160. Illustrated. 4to, maroon cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "The Maker's Hand is an inspiring resource book for engineers, architects, designers, weavers and other craftsmen, and indeed all those involved in assembling threadlike elements into functional structures. Peter Collingwood, for whom structure is a consuming interest, has selected over ninety objects from around the world, each of which he analyses in detail, revealing the inevitable beauty that can be achievedonly by a marriage between appropriate materials and ideal structure. In m any cases the structures have been evolved and perfected over centuries. All the objects, which range from Indian camel girths to the springs of a US army Jeep seat, from Japanese triaxial silk to Botswanan beer strainers, and from Omani sandsocks to a Tuareg hat, have been specially photographed byDavid Cripps to complement the author's analytical diagrams. Together they provide a book of outstanding visual appeal. Few people have the knowledge and experience to understand and analyze so wide a range of structures, bu t Peter Collingwood does so triumphantly, offering a unique insight into the balance of material and structure that should be the basis of all design"(from the dj). , Contents : One Single Element : Linking; Interlacing; Sim ple Looping; Interconnected Looping; Interlooping.

Index. 8vo, illustrated tancard covers, lettered in maroon and black. "Rug Art - Rescued from Oblivio n is a delightful tale of discovery, but a sad reflection on the lack of preservation of North America's most endangered art form that has literally and figuratively been "tramped on" for much too long. Abandoned for more than half a century in the basement of a damp and mould filled former New Glasgow, Nova Scotia rug pattern factory, a determined research team found amazing pen and ink rug art created by an artist who is said to have studied inthe same New York art class with noted folk artist Norman Rockwell. Under a leaking sewage pipe in that same factory they unearthed amazing hand cut Mystery stencils that are now rewriting an amazing heritage." (from the back cover). Very good. 20.00
