Descripción

22.0 x 14.0cms, 236pp, very good hardback & very good- dustwrapper (stained at top) (author's inscription) This book argues that most sophisticated treatments of the country-house deliberately juxtapose the 'retreat' & 'expansion' themes to symbolise a withdrawal from the city's growing mercantilism & an embodiment of the nation's growing wealth & power. Scarce title. N° de ref. de la librería 153913

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
