Tilman Riemenschneider: Master Sculptor of the Late Middle Ages
The sculpture of Tilman Riemenschneider stands at the threshold of two eras. Solidly anchored in the late Gothic tradition, it is also astonishingly daring. Riemenschneider, who was active in Wurzburg from around 1483 until 1531, was one of the first sculptors to abandon polychromy on occasion, making a conscious aesthetic decision to leave visible his favored material, limewood. His sculpture strikes a rare balance between formal elegance and expressive strength, and it is among the most appealing work of the late Middle Ages.The approximately fifty works documented in this handsome volume offer a fresh look at this great master. The book presents a broad survey of Riemenschneider's oeuvre, including representative work from all periods of his career. Contributors explore the sources for his art, his social millieu and the organization of his workshop, the critical reception of his work, his polychrome and monochrome sculpture. Photographs commissioned especially for the book present the great altarpieces in Rothenburg on the Tauber, Creglingen, and Maidbronn as well as the large stone sculpture in Wurzburg. The book is the first publication in English with color reproductions of a significant portion of Riemenschneider's oeuvre.

The Royal Abbey of Saint-Denis in the Time of Abbot Suger (1122-1151)

The French Revolution not only deposed the monarchy, putting an end to the “ancien regime,” but its vengeful fires destroyed thousands of chateaux, the symbols—and residences—of the upper classes. The anticlerical wrath of the Revolutionists also brought about the devastation of many churches: sculptured facades were defaced, stained-glass windows shattered, and treasuries ransacked and their contents scattered. Ironically, it was these outrageous acts of the populace and the neglect of the Commune that—almost two hundred years later—would enable The Metropolitan Museum of Art to mount two exhibitions in as many years, presenting the Museum’s visitors with major aspects of two of the most glorious monuments of the Gothic period, the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris and the Royal Abbey of Saint-Denis (designated a cathedral in 1966). [This book was originally published in 1981 and has gone out of print. This edition is a print-on-demand version of the original book.]

Inherently Safer Chemical Processes: A Life Cycle Approach (A CCPS Concept Book)
Many traditional routes to safer processes add complex layers--systems that must actively intervene, or that require special operating procedures to avert a catastrophe. Inherently safer concepts provide risk reduction as a built-in characteristic of the process. This book, which includes a foreword by internationally noted safety expert and the originator of the inherently safer concept Trevor Kletz, presents the principles and strategies for applying inherently safer thinking from the start of the life cycle to the very end.

From Attila to Charlemagne: Arts of the Early Medieval Period in The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The arts of the Early Medieval period form a major, yet little-known, part of the material from the Middle Ages in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Recent research on this fascinating period from approximately A.D. 400 to 800 reveals a more comprehensive picture of what has been traditionally referred to as the Dark Ages or the Migration period. The Museum's holdings in this area, the subject of a symposium and of new studies by leading European and American specialists, demonstrate the exceptional richness of material bridging Antiquity and the Middle Ages. The twenty-six essays in this volume provide the first in-depth study of this American repository of arts representing the many cultures and peoples that created early Europe, including the Ostrogoths, the Langobards, the Franks, and the Anglo-Saxons. The products of this great age of "portable art" range from elaborate weapon fittings and ornate buckles to gold brooches and other intricately designed and decorated jewelry. Over six hundred black-and-white photographs and eighteen color plates dramatically testify to the depth, breadth, and beauty of the Museum's Early Medieval collection. Of interest to both scholars and laymen, this publication coincides with the opening of the Museum's new galleries devoted to the arts of Byzantium and the Early Medieval period.

From Attila to Charlemagne: Arts of the Early Medieval Period in The Metropolitan Museum of Art also inaugurates a series of symposium volumes. These volumes will present the results of symposia at which scholars in the relevant fields assess aspects of the Metropolitan's collections. [This book was originally published in 2000 and has gone out of print. This edition is a print-on-demand version of the original book.]
