"Much of what we know about how steamboats looked between about 1835 and 1900 comes from the meticulously detailed paintings of John and James Bard, twin brothers who were born in New York City in 1815, coincidentally the same year that Robert Fulton died. The Bard brothers taught themselves to paint, turning out their first joint work at the age of twelve, and they became the greatest chroniclers of the steamboat era. Working for owners, captains, boat builders - anyone who would commission a ship's portrait - John and James Bard turned out thousands of stunning paintings that have long been treasured by museums and collectors. Sometimes regarded as folk artists because of the naive directness and simplicity of their paintings, the Bards created works that have become icons of Americana."

"Over the past 150 years Fanny Robinson's "Book of Memory, " as she called it, has been enjoyed as a treasured heirloom by her family. Now, for the first time, her beautiful work -- arguably the most exquisite collection of Victorian flower paintings in existence -- can be appreciated by all. Fanny's exceptional book combines elegant watercolors with evocative poetry that is finely illuminated in the manner of a medieval Book of Hours. Using the symbolic Language of Flowers, she invests each flower grouping with subtle and often highly romantic meanings -- indeed, it is thought that the volume was intended as a lasting tribute to a lost lover. In her fascinating commentary on the paintings, Gill Saunders, a senior curator in the Department of Prints, Drawings and Paintings at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, explains the intriguing floral symbolism and takes the reader on a delightful journey into Fanny Robinson's leisured and cultivated world of flower, pen and brush.

"In this new, lavishly illustrated survey drawn from the collections of The British Library, Janet Backhouse provides a comprehensive introduction to an exciting and colourful subject ranging from the breathtaking intricacies of the 7th-century Lindisfarne Gospels to the virtuoso pages of Renaissance and later artists. The British Library boasts the world's finest collection of medieval manuscripts, due largely to the interest and enterprise of individual bibliophiles and connoisseurs over several centuries whose libraries have made their way, by a variety of routes, into the national collection. The manuscripts featured in this book range in date from the 7th to the 17th century, embrace both devotional and secular material, and span a geographical area bounded by the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem in the east and the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria in the north-west. Some of them, such as the Luttrell Psalter or the Bedford Hours, are already well-known but the majority remain unfamiliar to the general public. Most of the subjects chosen are reproduced here in colour for the first time."
