About this Item: Peeters Publishers, Belgium, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: French . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Cet ouvrage est une etude de l ideologie royale de la dynastie des Pallava qui prospererent dans le sud de l Inde du IVeme au IXeme siecle. Ces rois hindous ont laisse des sources diverses et nombreuses qui donnent acces a leur conception du monde et de la societe, en particulier a leur representation de la royaute. Cette etude montre, en examinant des eloges epigraphiques et iconographiques, mais aussi les monnaies et un poeme de cour en tamoul (le Nantikkalampakam), qu il existe a cote du modele brahmanique de la subordination du roi au brahmane, un discours royal propre, voire contestataire. Le point de divergence crucial est la pretention des Pallava au double de statut de rois et de brahmanes. La royaute s affirme ainsi comme independante de la classe brahmanique en l integrant dans son lignage, realisant ainsi en elle-meme l union des pouvoirs temporel et spirituel . Ce premier tome contient l introduction et la presentation des sources de cette etude. Sa premiere partie est une introduction a la royaute hindoue et a la dynastie des Pallava (origine, histoire, art). Dans la deuxieme partie est etabli et presente le corpus des sources considerees comme temoignant du discours royal, a distinguer d autres sources d epoque pallava qui ne sont pas royales, mais locales. Cette deuxieme partie se conclut par une reflexion sur le panegyrique royal et sur la nature des sources royales (emetteurs, fonction, recepteurs). This book is an in-depth study of the royal ideology of the Pallava dynasty (South India, 4th-9th c. CE). These Hindu kings have left numerous and diverse sources evincing their conceptions of the world and the society, and particularly their self-representation of kingship. Through the examination of epigraphical and iconographical panegyrics as well as of coinage and Tamil court poetry (Nantikkalampakam), the argument is that, beside the brahmanical model of subordination of king to brahmin, there existed a specific royal discourse, at times contentious. The crucial point of divergence is the Pallavas claim to the double status of kings and brahmins. In this respect, kingship asserts its independence vis-a-vis the brahmanical class by incorporating it in its lineage, thus achieving the union of temporal and spiritual powers. The first volume contains the introduction and the presentation of the sources. The first part is a general presentation of Hindu kingship and the Pallava dynasty (origin, history, art). The second part draws up and presents the sources considered as testimonies of the royal discourse, contrasting them with other Pallava-period sources of local nature. It concludes with considerations about the royal panegyric and the nature of royal sources (issuers, functions, addressees). Seller Inventory # BTE9789042926882

About this Item: Tebe Karnak - Egitto, 1822. Incisioni e bassorilievi decorativi del tempio a sud del complesso templare di Karnak, nel sito archeologico dell'Antica Tebe. Tavola incisa all'acquaforte su lastra di rame, inserita nella monumentale opera Description de l'Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell'occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l'india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all'economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l'attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l'opera "Description de l'Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell'antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell'ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell'Egittologia. Numerosi edifici rappresentati in queste tavole sono stati completamente distrutti nel tempo mm 700x520 foglio. Seller Inventory # ST33354

Ce second tome presente d abord, dans la troisieme partie, une analyse des genealogies royales et des mythes dynastiques des Pallava a partir des sources epigraphiques. Vient ensuite, dans les quatrieme, cinquieme et sixieme parties, une analyse du contenu et du developpement du panegyrique epigraphique et iconographique des Pallava au cours de trois periodes successives en lesquelles l histoire de la dynastie peut etre divisee: l Ere du dana (ca. 300-550), l Ere des monuments (ca. 550-730) et l Ere du declin (ca. 730-900). This book is an in-depth study of the royal ideology of the Pallava dynasty (South India, 4th-9th c. CE).

In this respect, kingship asserts its independence vis-a-vis the brahmanical class by incorporating it in its lineage, thus achieving the union of temporal and spiritual powers. The second volume offers, in the third part, an analysis of royal genealogies and dynastic myths of the Pallavas from epigraphical sources. The fourth, fifth and sixth parts investigate the content and development of the epigraphical and iconographical panegyric of the Pallavas in the course of the three successive periods in the history of the dynasty: the era of dana (ca. 300-550), the era of monuments (ca. 550-730) and the era of decline (ca. 730-900).

About this Item: Université de Louvain, Institut Orientaliste, Louvain, 1956. Softcover. Condition: Near Fine. Volume I: xvi, 192 pp + illustrations. Volume II: xxxiv, 163 pp + xxiii (illustrations). Orignal printed wrappers. Both volumes have unopened pages, light shelf wear; else clean and sound. Text is in French. DNB: "In 1926 [Philby] settled in Jiddah [Saudi Arabia] founded a trading company, Sharqieh Ltd, and became a close friend and an unofficial adviser of Ibn Sa'ud. Business, exploration, writing, and Ibn Sa'ud's councils were henceforth the pattern of his life. Commerce, however, was only his bread and butter: his true interest was exploration. Over the next thirty years he made a series of remarkable journeys, of which the greatest was his crossing of the 'empty quarter' in 1932. On these journeys he travelled by camel and later by car. By day he collected place names, temperatures, compass bearings, barometric pressures, rocks, fossils, flora and fauna, and ancient inscriptions. At night he wrote them up in his diaries, squatting in the sand by lamplight and hiding his work from his suspicious Arab escort. These journeys and the many books, articles, and lectures in which he described them are a monument to his scholarship, industry, and endurance, and won him high honour with the Royal Geographical Society, the British Museum, Kew Gardens, and academic societies all over the world.".
