Text/BRAND NEW, showing margin discoloration. Illustrated linen boards w/silver embossed title/NF. DJ/NF w/nips, rubs & light soiling to edges. Worn front/rear hinges. English novelist and writer Dame Emilie Rose Macaulay (1881 - 1958) experienced the World War II blitz of London. After the War, she visited other ruined cities as well as remains of antiquity; relfecting on the historical, aesthetic, moral and emotional value of ruins, she shared her thoughts in The Pleasure of Ruins (1953). The Epilogue quotes Diderot: "why ruins give so much pleasure. Everything dissolves. everything passes, only time goes on. How old the world is. I walk between two eternities. What is my existence in comparison with. crumbling stone?" Equally well travelled Canadian artist, photographer Roloff Beny Roloff Beny (1924 - 1984) captures the poetry of ruins in synchrony. Volume contains 12 band mounted color plates, 160 pages in photogravure, and 29 maps and site plans. N° de ref. de la librería 010878
