Williamson, German Special Forces of World War II. Williamson, Gordon / Chappell, Mike. German Special Forces of World War II. Oxford / New York, Osprey Publishing, 2009. 18.5cm x 25cm. 64 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition. From the Elite series (Number 177).

A study of the troops that made up Germany’s elite special forces of World War II (1939-1945) Germany’s wartime special forces were a distinctive and pioneering range of elite units, and they saw action from the first days of the war. Such forces included the legenday Skorzeny Commandos who carried out such audacious tasks as the glider-borne rescue of Mussolini, and the kidnapping of the son of the Hungarian regent, Admiral Horthy. This book also includes details of lesser-known units such as the Brandenburgers, who operated behind enemy lines in captured uniforms, and the Kleinkampfverbände who were the forerunners of modern-day naval combat troops like the US Navy SEALs. Complete with uniform and kit detail together with action accounts of many of these daring operations, this book is a must-have for any special forces enthusiast.

Sir Bertram Coghill Alan Windle, FRS, FSA, KSG (8 May 1858 – 14 February 1929) was a British anatomist, administrator, archaeologist, scientist, educationalist and writer. He was born at Mayfield Vicarage, in Staffordshire, where his father, the Reverend Samuel Allen Windle, a Church of England clergyman, was vicar. He attended Trinity College, where he graduated B.A. in 1879. He also served as Librarian of the University Philosophical Society in the 1877–78 session.

In 1891 he was appointed dean of the medical faculty of Queen’s College, Birmingham. Queen’s College’s medical faculty became the medical faculty of Mason Science College in the early 1890s, and then became the medical faculty of the University of Birmingham in 1900. Windle was professor of anatomy and anthropology and first Dean of the Medical Faculty at Birmingham University. In 1904 he accepted the presidency of Queen’s College, Cork. Windle married twice, first in 1886 to Madoline Hudson, and in 1901 to Edith Mary Nazer. He died in 1929 aged 71. His conversion to Catholicism influenced many.
Windle was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1899. In 1909, he was made a knight of St. Gregory the Great by Pius X. In 1912, he was made a Knight Bachelor and therefore granted the title sir. He was knighted by King George V during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace on 6 March 1912 (Wikipedia)

Wölfflin, Principles of Art History - the problem of the development of style in later art. Wölfflin, Heinrich. Principles of Art History – the problem of the development of style in later art. New York, Dover Publications Inc., 1929, 15.5 cm x 23 cm, IX, 237 pages. Original Softcover. Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. From the library of philosopher Graham Parkes, with his name on the front free endpaper. Some erasable light pencil underlining and notation in places.

Seventh edition. Translated by M. D. Hottinger.
Includes for example: Linear and Painterly / Plane and Recession / Closed and Open Form / Sculpture / Architecture etc. etc.

What are the fundamental differences between classic and baroque? Is there a pattern underlying the seemingly helterskelter development of art in different culture and times? What causes our entirely different emotional reactions to, say, Durer and Rembrandt? The author provides an objective set of criteria to answer these and related questions. Examining style, quality, mode of representation in terms of five opposed dynamisms: the linear vs. the painterly; plane vs. recession; closed vs. open form; multiplicity vs. unity; clearness vs. unclearness. The author analyzes the work of 64 major artists, as well as sculpture and architecture. 150 illustrations of the work of Botticelli, van Cleve, Dürer, Holbein, Brueghel, Bouts, Hals, Rembrandt, Velasquez, Titian, Vermeer and 55 others accompany brilliant contributions to the methodology of art criticism. Whether you teach art, study it, or want to understand it purely for your own enjoyment, this epoch-making study will increase your comprehension of and pleasure in the world’s great art treasures.
