Item Description: Penguin Books, New York, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. 194 pp., illus., biblio., index; 22 cm. Tight, clean copy. Previous owner's label/inside front cover. Browning. Another copy available. "By all accounts, Filippo Brunelleschi, goldsmith and clockmaker, was an unkempt, cantankerous, and suspicious man - even by the generous standards according to which artists were judged in fifteenth-century Florence. He also designed and erected a dome over the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore - a feat of architectural daring that we continue to marvel at today - thus securing himself a place among the most formidable geniuses of the Renaissance. At first denounced as a madman, Brunelleschi literally reinvented the field of architecture amid plagues, wars, and political feuds to raise seventy million pounds of metal, wood, and marble hundreds of feet in the air. Ross King's captivating narrative brings to life the personalities and intrigue surrounding the twenty-eight-year-long construction of the dome, opening a window onto Florentine life during one of history's most fascinating eras. / Born and raised in Canada, Ross King has lived in England since 1992. His writing career began in 1995 with the publication of a historical novel, Domino, about the world of masquerades and opera in 18th-century London. Its successor, Ex-Libris, was a novel about bookselling, codes and spies in 17th-century Europe. King is best known to American readers as the author of the nonfiction Brunelleschi's Dome: How a Renaissance Genius Reinvented Architecture. The seed of the book was planted when King read a brief account of the building of Brunelleschi's dome in Giorgio Vasari's 16th-century Lives of the Artists. That, and a trip to Florence, piqued his interest in learning more about the dome. When he couldn't find a book that told him what he wanted to know, he decided to write it. The book was an instant hit in the U.S.: a 2001 Book Sense Nonfiction Book of the Year and a New York Times bestseller. His most recent book is Michelangelo & the Pope's Ceiling, a nonfiction book that Ross describes as a companion piece to Brunelleschi's Dome: "In the same way that Brunelleschi's Dome is about Brunelleschi, but also about Florence at that time," King says, 'Michelangelo & the Pope's Ceiling is about Rome in the years 1508 to 1512 - sort of an artisan's-eye view of the Renaissance.' Once again it was Vasari who provided the starting-point: 'While I discovered that much of what Vasari wrote about Brunelleschi was true, the same can't exactly be said for his account of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. What I wanted to do, therefore, was look through the legend to get a more accurate idea of the process of painting the fresco, and in doing so to bring a number of other characters, such as his assistants, into the picture. Michelangelo's achievement is no less stunning, and the story is, I think, actually more interesting.' Anyone familiar with Ross King's writing knows that he has an impressive knowledge of European cultural history. He originally planned a career in academia, earning his Ph.D. in English Literature and moving to England to assume a research position at the University of London. King lives near Oxford, England, in the historic town of Woodstock, the site of Blenheim Palace." - Publisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 078202

Item Description: Penguin Books, Harmondsworth, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. vii, 371 pp., [12] pp. of plates, illus. (some col.), maps, biblio., index; 24 cm. First published, London : Chatto & Windus, 2002. Near fine. Tight, clean copy. First flyleaf dampstained. Another copy available. "In 1508, despite strong advice to the contrary, the powerful Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo Buonarroti to paint the ceiling of the newly restored Sistine Chapel in Rome. Four years earlier, at the age of twenty-nine, Michelangelo had unveiled his masterful statue of David in Florence; however, he had little experience as a painter, even less working in the delicate medium of fresco, and none with the curved surface of vaults, which dominated the chapel's ceiling. The temperamental Michelangelo was himself reluctant, and he stormed away from Rome, risking Julius's wrath, only to be persuaded to eventually begin. Michelangelo would spend the next four years laboring over the vast ceiling. He executed hundreds of drawings, many of which are masterpieces in their own right. Contrary to legend, he and his assistants worked standing rather than on their backs, and after his years on the scaffold, Michelangelo suffered a bizarre form of eyestrain that made it impossible for him to read letters unless he held them at arm's length. Nonetheless, he produced one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, about which Giorgio Vasari, in his Lives of the Artists, wrote, 'There is no other work to compare with this for excellence, nor could there be.' Ross King's fascinating new book tells the story of those four extraordinary years. Battling against ill health, financial difficulties, domestic problems, inadequate knowledge of the art of fresco, and the pope's impatience, Michelangelo created figures—depicting the Creation, the Fall, and the Flood - so beautiful that, when they were unveiled in 1512, they stunned his onlookers. Modern anatomy has yet to find names for some of the muscles on his nudes, they are painted in such detail. While he worked, Rome teemed around him, its politics and rivalries with other city-states and with France at fever pitch, often intruding on his work. From Michelangelo's experiments with the composition of pigment and plaster to his bitter competition with the famed painter Raphael, who was working on the neighboring Papal Apartments, Ross King presents a magnificent tapestry of day-to-day life on the ingenious Sistine scaffolding and outside in the upheaval of early-sixteenth-century Rome. / Born and raised in Canada, Ross King has lived in England since 1992.

While he worked, Rome teemed around him, its politics and rivalries with other city-states and with France at fever pitch, often intruding on his work. From Michelangelo's experiments with the composition of pigment and plaster to his bitter competition with the famed painter Raphael, who was working on the neighboring Papal Apartments, Ross King presents a magnificent tapestry of day-to-day life on the ingenious Sistine scaffolding and outside in the upheaval of early-sixteenth-century Rome. / Born and raised in Canada, Ross King has lived in England since 1992. His writing career began in 1995 with the publication of a historical novel, Domino, about the world of masquerades and opera in 18th-century London. Its successor, Ex-Libris, was a novel about bookselling, codes and spies in 17th-century Europe. King is best known to American readers as the author of the nonfiction Brunelleschi's Dome: How a Renaissance Genius Reinvented Architecture. The seed of the book was planted when King read a brief account of the building of Brunelleschi's dome in Giorgio Vasari's 16th-century Lives of the Artists. That, and a trip to Florence, piqued his interest in learning more about the dome. When he couldn't find a book that told him what he wanted to know, he decided to write it. The book was an instant hit in the U.S.: a 2001 Book Sense Nonfiction Book of the Year and a New York Times bestseller. His most recent book is Michelangelo & the Pope's Ceiling, a nonfiction book that Ross describes as a companion piece to Brunelleschi's Dome: "In the same way that Brunelleschi's Dome is about Brunelleschi, but also about Florence at that time," King says, "Michelangelo & the Pope's Ceiling is about Rome in the years 1508 to 1512 'sort of an artisan's-eye view of the Renaissance.' Once again it was Vasari who provided the starting-point: 'While I discovered that much of what Vasari wrote about Brunelleschi was true, the same can't exactly be said for his account of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. What I wanted to do, therefore, was look through the legend. Bookseller Inventory # 058693

First published, London : Chatto & Windus, 2002. Tight, clean copy. "In 1508, despite strong advice to the contrary, the powerful Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo Buonarroti to paint the ceiling of the newly restored Sistine Chapel in Rome. Four years earlier, at the age of twenty-nine, Michelangelo had unveiled his masterful statue of David in Florence; however, he had little experience as a painter, even less working in the delicate medium of fresco, and none with the curved surface of vaults, which dominated the chapel's ceiling. The temperamental Michelangelo was himself reluctant, and he stormed away from Rome, risking Julius's wrath, only to be persuaded to eventually begin. Michelangelo would spend the next four years laboring over the vast ceiling. He executed hundreds of drawings, many of which are masterpieces in their own right. Contrary to legend, he and his assistants worked standing rather than on their backs, and after his years on the scaffold, Michelangelo suffered a bizarre form of eyestrain that made it impossible for him to read letters unless he held them at arm's length. Nonetheless, he produced one of the greatest masterpieces of all time, about which Giorgio Vasari, in his Lives of the Artists, wrote, 'There is no other work to compare with this for excellence, nor could there be.' Ross King's fascinating new book tells the story of those four extraordinary years. Battling against ill health, financial difficulties, domestic problems, inadequate knowledge of the art of fresco, and the pope's impatience, Michelangelo created figures—depicting the Creation, the Fall, and the Flood - so beautiful that, when they were unveiled in 1512, they stunned his onlookers.

Item Description: London : Pimlico, 2001. First Edition. Near fine paperback copy; edges very slightly dust-dulled and nicked. Remains particularly and surprisingly well-preserved overall; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Physical description; 184 p., [8]p. of plates : ill. (some col.), facsims., plan, col. port. ; 22 cm. Series; Pimlico ; 442. Notes; Originally published: London: Chatto & Windus, 2000. Includes bibliographical references (p. 175) and index. Summary; This is a narrative about the artist and architect Filippo Brunelleschi and about the design and construction in the 1430s of his dome for the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. The cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, with its great, terracotta-tiled cupola, still remains a power to astonish. Yet the elegance of the building belies the tremendous labour and technical ingenuity involved in its creation. This work tells the story of how the cupola was raised. Review: In 1418 the City of Florence issued a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to its workmen: to design what was to become still the highest and widest masonry dome ever built. The solution was expected to come from a mason or carpenter, but it was a goldsmith and clockmaker, Filippo Brunelleschi, whose scheme was finally accepted. Novelist King's riveting account describes the human and technical challenges involved in building the dome over the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, a process which took some 18 years to complete and which to this day still elicits admiration and astonishment. This story of the dome's design and construction is in itself a labour of love, a hymn of praise to an extraordinary feat, aimed not at the specialist but at anyone who has the capacity to wonder at this greatest of architectural conundrums, and its solution. It also tells the very human tale of a man who strove for perfection and was finally heralded as a genius. (Kirkus UK) Subjects; Brunelleschi, Filippo 1377-1446 — Studies.
