Ralph Adams Cram Impressions of Japanese Architecture


"The best book on Japanese architecture ever produced by a Westerner." —The American ArchitectJapanese architecture is undoubtedly less well known and less appreciated than the architecture of any other civilized nation. Not only this, but it is almost universally misjudged, and while the world has by degrees come to know and admire the pictorial and industrial arts of Japan, her architecture, which is the rot and vehicle of all other modes of art, is passed over with a casual reference to its fantastic quality or a patronizing tribute to the excellence of some of its carved decoration.Written at a time when Japanese art was only beginning to be appreciated in the West, Impressions of Japanese Architecture conveys a sense of discovery and enthusiasm that modern readers will find as interesting and infectious as the book's first readers did. Long considered a classic, this new edition contains a foreword by acclaimed contemporary architect and author, Mira Locher. Originally published about one hundred years ago, Impressions of Japanese Architecture is still of immense value to anyone wishing for a better understanding of Japanese architecture, art and culture.

Henry Adams Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres


Henry Adams (1838-1918), grandson of President John Quincy Adams and great-grandson of President John Adams, was a journalist, historian and novelist who, in 1919, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his autobiography «The Education of Henry Adams». One of his less well-known, but equally brilliant, novels was privately published in 1904: «Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres». American architect Ralph Adams Cram pushed for the public release of the novel in 1913, with the support of the American Institute of Architects. The work is a detailed exploration of medieval society, its poetry, mysticism and philosophy, written through his examination of Gothic architecture, sculpture and stained glass. The great cathedrals of France served as inspiration for this work, in which Adams also delves into the Catholic views of St. Michel, the ideology symbolized by St. Mary, the debate between William of Champaux and Peter Abelard, and the ideas of St. Thomas Aquinas. This work is a wonderful companion novel to the author's autobiography.

Henry Adams The Education of Henry Adams


Awarded the Pulitzer Prize for non-fiction in 1919, “The Education of Henry Adams” is the autobiography of Henry Adams, the grandson of President John Quincy Adams, and the great-grandson of President John Adams. First published personally at his own expense in 1907, the book was not printed commercially in large numbers until his death in 1918. Born Henry Brooks Adams in 1838, he was educated at Harvard and was introduced to politics and diplomacy at a young age, when he served as secretary to his father, Charles Francis Adams, Abraham Lincoln’s ambassador to the United Kingdom. During this time he worked as an anonymous foreign correspondent for the “New York Times”. Between 1868 and 1877 Adams worked as a journalist focused on exposing political corruption and as a professor of medieval history at Harvard. Despite his accomplishments, Adams saw himself as a failure. He believed that his education did not properly prepare him for the demands of a world which was modernizing at a dynamic pace. He also felt that he did not live up to the legacy established by the lofty accomplishments of his ancestors. This thoughtful and intimate book remains an important document of 19th century American history and political life. Adams, one of America’s most important historians, journalists, and novelists, shows in this great work of literature that he was anything but a failure.

Richard Blaker Needle-Watcher


This fascinating novel reconstructs the story of Will Adams, a native of Gillingham, in Kent, England, and his voyage to Japan in the seventeenth century.Adams' knowledge of seafaring vessels at the time causes him to be taken into the favor of the shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu and,in time,to become recognized as the founder of the Japanese navy. Adams was one of the most picturesque and daring of Britain's maritime traders, and this depiction of him as the first Englishman to settle in what was then a hostile country is written not only with distinction but also with an imaginative grasp that takes it right out of the class of the ordinary historical novel. It is an epic tale of strange adventures, and it creates an atmosphere of rare and haunting quality. In its understanding of the Japanese mind it is hardly less than remarkable.Will Adams died in Japan in the spring of 1620 and is buried at Yokosuka. Every year a ceremony is still held to commemorate the anniversary of his death. There is also a memorial to him at Ito,in Shizuoka Prefecture, as well as one at his birthplace in England.

Группа авторов Japan: Theme & Variations


This collection of Japanese poetry contains over 200 poems by some 153 Americans writing of their impressions and experiences of Japan.If Japan forms the theme of the poems collected here, the variations are certainly the deep feeling so many Americans have come to have for Japan and the Japanese People. And the Resulting Choral is, we are convinced, both a thing of beauty and unique expression of goodwill between nations.Through the many years and in many countries poets have been entranced with the romances suggested by the name Japan. They have enthralled the sweetness of its children; serenity of its art; the beauty of its fields, seas, and mountains; the grandeur of its ancient architecture and quiet gardens; colorful pageantry of its history and deep emotions of its drama; the industriousness of its workers, charm of its women, and indomitable character of its people.

Henry Adams THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS


This eBook edition of «THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS» has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. Henry Adams (1838-1918) was a member of the political family founded by John Adams during the American Revolution. While his ambitions were literary and historical (his major work is a massive history of the United States in the age of Jefferson), he was not completely immune from the political life. The Education of Henry Adams is the Pulitzer Prize winning autobiography of Henry Adams. He recounts the education he received, lamenting that formal schooling failed to prepare him for a century of technological and philosophical change. This book is an excellent way to learn about 19th century America, interestingly he chose the third person to tell his own story The Education is much more a record of Adams's introspection than of his deeds. It is an extended meditation on the social, technological, political, and intellectual changes that occurred over Adams's lifetime. Adams concluded that his traditional education at Harvard failed to help him come to terms with the rapid changes he saw in his lifetime; hence his need for self-education. Many consider this the best autobiography ever written.
