The Atlas Blaeu-Van der Hem of the Austrian National Library, Volume VI

The Supplemental Volumes (Ergänzungsbände). Descriptive Catalogue of the Four Supplemental Volumes to the Atlas

Series:

A complete descriptive and illustrated catalogue of one of the largest and finest atlases ever assembled. Now housed in the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, the 46-volume atlas is an expanded version of Joan Blaeu's Atlas Maior or 'Great Atlas', published in Amsterdam between 1660 and 1663. Though the core of the atlas consists of the several hundred maps issued by Blaeu, the original owner of the atlas, Laurens van der Hem (1621-1678), added other maps, views, and drawings of his own choice, including four volumes of manuscript maps of Africa and Asia made for the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The practice of augmenting atlases was common in the seventeenth century, but few of these personalized atlases have survived the centuries. The catalogue in 7 volumes (plus a volume about the making of the facsimile) will include all the sheets in the atlas reproduced in black-and-white, with cartographical historical and arthistorical descriptions by P. van der Krogt and E. de Groot. Each volume will contain approximately 16 full-colour illustrations.

The Fabrication and Preservation of Architectural Drawings

Lois Olcott Price

As documents of the built environment, as source material for architectural historians and preservation architects, and as stunning works of art, architectural drawings serve a wide and diverse audience.
This book explores the materials and techniques used in their fabrication while illustrating their evolution from the eighteenth through the twentieth century. In addition to documenting the drafting process, this exploration also contributes to an understanding of the development of architectural design, the architectural profession, and the manufacturers that served its drafting and reprographic needs.
Because architectural drawings survive in great numbers and in large, often unstable formats, preservation and access issues present major challenges for institutions that hold research collections. This book provides a comprehensive look at both the problems and the solutions. It is beautifully illustrated with examples from major collections and includes extensive source citations.
The first three chapters discuss: the development of drafting-specific drawing, detail, and tracing papers and cloths; the changing media and techniques used in drafting, rendering, and mounting working, detail, and presentation drawings; the use of drawing instruments and correction and copying methods; and the introduction, development, and identification of blueprints and other photo-reproduction processes, including the history, chemistry, and working procedure for each process. The fourth and final chapter includes: an introduction to preservation, collection management, storage, and exhibition specifically for architectural drawings and photo-reproductions; and descriptions of specific conservation treatments with an assessment of their appropriateness for different deterioration issues and types of drawings.

The University of Mary Washington Center for Historic Preservation has awarded the 2011 Historic Preservation Book Prize to Line, Shade and Shadow: The Fabrication and Preservation of Architectural Drawings by Lois Olcott Price.

Endangered Cities

Military Power and Urban Societies in the Era of the World Wars

Series:

Edited by Marcus Funck and Roger Chickering

Any war wreaks havoc on cities as well as the countryside. Endangered Cities explores specifically the urban experience in twentieth-century war-torn Europe. Volume contributors draw on the history of cities in seven European countries between 1914 and 1945 in which in almost every instance the boundaries between civilian and military powers collapse. Eleven original essays examine major phenomena during the urban war-time experience, including the effort to anticipate and defend against air attack, the burdens of siege and occupation, the rituals that developed around popular entertainment, black markets, the problems posed by death and destruction, and how cities devastated by war rose from the rubble to rebuild.

Contributors include: Martin Baumeister, Roger Chickering, Davide Deriu, Marcus Funck, Andreas R. Hofmann, Benoît Majerus, Efi Markou, Karl D. Qualls, Eva-Maria Stolberg, Guy Thewes, Julia S. Torrie, and Malte Zierenberg.
