"On June 6, 1944, a decisive day in the history of the Western World, the radio had been blaring reports of the progress of American troops on the Normandy beachhead since long before dawn. The man whose portrait is examined in this book had reached the supreme moment of his career. This work is a first hand account of Dwight D. Eisenhower from his early years in Texas through his military service in World War II. It documents his training at West Point, his tour of duty in WWI and then his meteoric rise as war leader and stateman in World War II. Extensive interviews that the author conducted with Eisenhower in London in the days leading up to the Normandy invasion shed new light on the strategic thinking that lay behind the momentous plans that were then being formulated. They also provide an intimate look at Eisenhower the man and the deeply held sense of values that would see him through the war and then later inform his tenure as president of the United States."

310 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w reproductions. "George Heriot (1759-1839), a Scot, is best known as a skilled landscape watercolourist and as the contentious deputy postmaster general of British North America from 1800 to 1816. He was also a travel writer and a poet. In this volume, a combination of biography and art history, Gerald Finaly presents, for the first time, a rounded picture of Heriot, revealing his motives and ideals while also illuminating the texture of life in Canada during the early years of settlement. In describing Heriot's several roles as artist, administrator, patriot, spy, Fnley presents a portrait of an eighteenth-century gentleman whose superficial desires were for an active public life but whose deeper yearnings were for a life of contemplation. This volume serves to recognize Heriot's artistic achievement and to accord him the place he deserves in the history of Canadian art and the country itself."

16 Hamilton, James. ARTHUR RACKHAM: A LIFE WITH ILLUSTRATIONS.
London Pavilion 1990 1851455310 / 9781851455317 2nd Printing Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- Arthur Rackham. 
199 pp, 4to (12 1/4" H). Beautifully illustrated with b&w photographs and b&w and colour reproductions of Arthur Rackham's work. "Arthur Rackham's magical illustrations for such works as 'Rip Van Winkle', 'Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens', 'Alice in Wonderland', 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'The Wind in the Willows' have attained the classic status of the writings themselves - indeed, in some cases, they have become synonymous with them, making his versions among the most highly collected of all illustrated books. Rackham himself, however, has remained a shadowy figure, half-glimpsed and as elusive as the fairies and gnomes that inhabit his pictures. Here - with the full cooperation of Rackham's family and using previously unpublished documentary and pictorial evidence from British, European and American sources - James Hamilton provides a revealing examination of the artist and his work. In a detailed biographical survey he focusses on the various phases of Rackham's artistic development, and considers his family background and influences, his travels and his professional progress in the decade before the First World War from minor illustrator to celebrated artist. He reveals Rackham's considerable talents as a landscape and portrait painter, and traces his responses both to his successes and mid-career setbacks, and his subsequent rediscovery and return to cult status in America. (He) also discusses Rackham's artistic methods and his skill in creating work that was technically suited to contemporary printing processes, and reviews his fluctuating financial successes in the context of the business of book illustration. Detailed appendices include a chronology of Rackham's life, discussions of his technique and how he was able to make freelance illustration pay, and a complete bibliography of books illustrated by him." Fading to color at top/bottom edge of spine, two tiny corner bumps. Dust jacket is price clipped, has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, moderate fading to color on spine and on hinge areas, light browning to top edge of flaps.
