Akhenaten: King of Egypt, Aldred, Cyril
1 Aldred, Cyril
Akhenaten: King of Egypt
New York Thames and Hudson 1988 0500050481 / 9780500050484 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Cloth, gilt, 320 pp., illus., biblio., index; 26 cm. First published,1968. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Age toning. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. The period of Akhenaten's rule in Egypt was anomalous, partly because he introduced monotheism, but also because the norms of Egyptian art changed radically. For a brief time, the normally static artforms became oddly curvilinear and "feminine"; portraits of the Pharaoh depict him as an individual rather than a generic king. Profusely illustrated.

Detroit Wayne State University Press 1986 0814318134 / 9780814318133 Paperback Fine 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
xxviii, 289 pp., illus., maps, biblio., index; 26 cm. Tight, clean copy. "In a series of lively and authoritative essays, eight internationally known scholars present a portrait of the wealthy, sophisticated Etruscans, whose territory once extended from the Po River to the Bay of Naples. Once considered to be lost to history, the Etruscan civilization is reemerging into focus because of recent archaeological discoveries and new trends in interpretation. The eminent Etruscan scholar Larissa Bonfante and her seven colleagues synthesize these new findings and theories each according to his or her discipline. A primer on Etruscan language is included to help newcomers decipher the inscriptions on many of the monuments illustrated in the book." - Publisher.

Etruscan Art, Brendel, Otto J.
17 Brendel, Otto J.
Etruscan Art
New Haven, CT Yale University Press; Pelican History of Art 1995 0300064462 / 9780300064469 2nd Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Reprint. 535 pp., illus., biblio., index; 21 cm. With an additional bibliography by Francesca R. Serra Ridgway. Tight, clean copy. "This volume - the first serious book in English on Etruscan art - was hailed for its broad scope, thorough knowledge, and clear exposition when it was published almost twenty years ago. Now brought back into print with an updated bibliography and bibliographical essay by Francesca R. Serra Ridgway, it remains an essential introduction for anyone interested in ancient art, history, and civilization. Otto Brendel's exploration of the art, culture, and society of Etruria takes us through its four main periods of creativity: the Villanovan and Orientalizing era, the Archaic era, the Classical era, and the Hellenistic era, when Etruscan art became extinct. According to Brendel, the Etruscans were deeply influenced by Greek styles but used Greek forms and concepts to further their own purposes. Etruscan art is a private art, aristocratic and luxurious but centered in the life of the family and a continuing life in the tomb. Many of the art forms and objects discussed - ceramics, metalware, jewelry, sculpture, and wall painting - are known to us through the discovery of tombs. Most of these objects had a clearly defined function but were also designed, with a high degree of quality and craftsmanship, to be decorative. The beautiful art of the Etruscans, illustrated and explained in this book, sheds much light on a people about whom we know little. / Otto J. Brendel held many academic positions in Europe and the United States, the last of which was as a professor at Columbia University, and he was the author of many fundamental books on ancient art. He died in 1973. Francesca R. Serra Ridgway is an honorary fellow in the department of classics at the University of Edinburgh." - Publisher.
