"This book demonstrates how two strains of influence - the resurgence of Classicsim and the impact of 'pri mitivism' on Western culture - provide links between Symbolism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism and the birth of Modernism. Certain polarities generated by these two different strains - tradition versus innovation, Western versus non-Western c u l t u r e , t he timelessness of myth versus the experience of modern life - were driven by ideas that developed formalist parallels. This can be seen in the struggle between the figurative and abstract in art, and in the contrast between the pa st or al i dy ll a n d the contemporary landscape...."

4 Walsh, Robert, Jr. & M'Henry, James, Dr. THE JACKSON WREATH, OR NATIONAL SOUVENIR: A NATIONAL TRIBUTE, COMMEMORATIVE OF THE GREAT CIVIL VICTORY ACHIEVED BY THE PEOPLE, THROUGH THE HERO OF NEW ORLEANS.
Philadelphia Jacob Maas, Franklin Engraving Office 1829 First Edition Hard Cover Fair 
88 pp + musical notation, plates & fold out map at rear. Maroon leather spine/corners with gilt lettering and decoration, marbled paper-covered boards/endpapers. There are inconsistencies in the page numbering and with reference to the table of contents, but all text pages and illustrations are present. The front free endpaper has been removed and the textblock begins with the frontispiece of Andrew Jackson (after J. Wood) facing an engraved preliminary title page. These are divided by the remains of a protective tissue with about 1/3 now missing. The full title page (with a previous owner's name in pencil at the top) and text follow. Contents: Advertisement; Biography of General Jackson By Robt. Walsh Jr. Esqr.; Remarks of the Publisher; Continuation of the Biography By Dr. James M'Henry; A Dirge, to the Memory of Mrs. Jackson, ibid; Description of the Capitol of Washington. The illustrations consist of the frontispiece portrait, the engraved title page, The Golden Wreath (printed on a coated paper that is now somewhat crazed and discoloured), 3 plates (The Battle of New Orleans, The Hermitage & The Capitol - with protective tissues), 3 pages of musical notation (Jackson's March & Quick Step - with protective tissues) and a brightly coloured map (19" W x 16 1/2" H) of the "United States of North America" "Published for the Jackson Wreath" and showing the United States reaching to Louisiana and the Arkansas and Oregon Territories. In general, the book is sound and except for the front free endpaper, complete, but has considerable browning/foxing (particularly noticeable on the tissues) and marks from where plants (ferns, leaves, etc.) have been pressed in the past. The map is in very good condition, the coloring is bright, although there is some creasing & small tears at the edges and a few areas of discoloration. The blank page preceding the rear free endpaper is missing the top corner (approx. 2 1/4" x 4 3/4") and there are a few pencil & ink notations on the blank pages. Light waviness and darkening to edges of text block, moderate edge wear to boards and leather - heavier at top/bottom of spine, rubbing to marbled paper-covered boards. Additional pictures of this book are available on request.
