The Universal Penman
24,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is the only complete edition available of one of the most famous and most useful books of commercial art ever printed. George Bickham, a noted engraver and calligrapher, first compiled this work back in the 1740's, from the best specimens of 24 of the leading calligraphers of his day. Unfortunately, Bickham published his work in 52 separate parts, over a period of eight years. In Bickham's own day it was difficult to get a complete set of the Universal Penman; today, apart from this edition, it is virtually impossible, for most surviving 18th-century copies lack certain rare plates. This Dover edition, however, contains every plate which Bickham engraved, and each is reproduced from an original so remarkably clear that these modern plates are actually better than most 18th-century originals. This book contains more than 210 full-page plates, each crammed full of beautiful and interesting material. To list only part of its contents: . Over 125 pictorial scenes, clear copperplates of drinking scenes, family scenes, commerce, rustic festivities, duels, more. . Over 200 script pictures, male and female heads, busts, cherubs, griffins, birds, fish, etc. . 19 complete alphabets: round hand, round text, Old English, florid, foliated, and others. . 275 lettered specimens, overlaid with fine flourishes, swirls, spirals, featherings, volutes, etc. . Over 100 panels, frames, cartouches, and other effects Over 950 lettered specimens, with thousands of words that can be lifted right off for reproduction. Individual items in this book are permission-free, and may be used (up to ten items per use) without permission, payment, or credit line. Calligraphers find Bickham the best source for English round-handwriting; commercial artists, advertising directors, and designers all find Bickham first-rate as a source for immediately usable pictures and script that suggests antiquity, quality, and reliability. Craftspeople have found it rich in unusual ideas and motifs, while libraries and art historians find it a wonderful collection of 18th-century pictures illustrating art-life.

In the early 20th century Dr. Maria Montessori's innovative theory of infant education took the world by storm. Advocating for allowing the child freedom in pursuing his "inner work", the work of the mind, her method includes a series of scientifically designed teaching materials (didactic materials) that encourage the child to proceed at her own pace with minimal guidance from the teacher. Soon her "Case dei Bambini" (Children's Houses) were being replicated around the world and she had written two books about the scientific basis of her theory and given dozens of teacher-training seminars and lectures. But success breeds imitation and by 1914 "certain books which may appear to the general reader to be the authoritative expositions of the Montessori system" were being circulated. To counter this, she published this short, easy to follow handbook, which includes exercises and detailed descriptions of teaching materials that can be replicated. (Modern parents will be relieved that china plates and cups, and modeling clay that needed to be glazed and baked have been replaced by plastic and play dough. Montessori teaching materials are also available online.) Concise explanations are given of her theories of motor education; sensory education; language and knowledge of the world; freedom; writing; the reading of music; and arithmetic.A hundred years later the Montessori Method of "learning by doing" still thrives. This book gives insight into the brilliant mind that invented it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anne Hancock. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/mike/002991/bk_mike_002991_sample.mp3.

Soul Numbers: Decipher the Messages from Your I...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Is it just a coincidence that a record number of people are seeing in numbers, or could it be the fabric of the universe revealing itself to us? According to the religion of Kabbalah and even the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, the truths of the universe are contained within numbers. The phenomena of numbers - seeing repeating numbers and number sequences - are sweeping the globe. People from the average Joe to celebrities are seeing repeating numbers on clocks, in addresses, in phone numbers, in account numbers, and on license plates, just to name a few. Repeating numbers and number sequences are showing up in both the quirky and the commonplace on a daily basis. Skeptics argue that seeing repeating numbers is simply a matter of pattern recognition and it's all in our head. There have been scientific theories throughout history that attempt to explain the basis of the universal structure - from String Theory to the Holographic universe. All things in existence can be counted, sorted, or measured using numbers and, intriguingly, a common thread in many theories is mathematics. More people are reporting the same phenomena in all cultures, races, and religions, turning skeptics into believers. Soul Numbers has the potential to create a tidal wave amid this numbers phenomenon, making it the new, most complete numbers-meaning bible. Numerology books offer some insight into the base number meanings of 0 to 9 but fail to go further to precisely pinpoint and explain why someone is seeing 1:47 on a clock daily and what it means to them. Covering the number meanings from 0 to 999, Soul Numbers helps listeners decipher any number sequence. Whether they're seeing single 2s everywhere or exactly four - 2222 - it will allow them to break the numbers down like an ancient code. Unlike other titles with mainly angelic-focused number meanings, this book holds a broad spectrum view of number patterns, weaving scienc 1. Language: English. Narrator: Catherine Force.

The Book of Treasure Spirits: A Grimoire of Mag...
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

THE BOOK OF TREASURE SPIRITS Conjurations of Goetic spirits, old gods, demons and fairies are all part of a rich heritage of the magical search for treasure trove. During the Middle Ages and Renaissance the British Monarchy gave out licenses to people seeking treasure in an effort to control such practices, and this is one reason why so many grimoires are full of conjurations and charms to help the magician find treasure. Published here for the first time, from a long-ignored mid-seventeenth century manuscript in the British Library (Sloane MS 3824), is the conjuration said to have been performed at the request of King Edward IV, with other rites to reveal treasure, to have treasure brought from the sea, and to cause thieves to bring back stolen goods. Conjurations to call any type of spirit are also included, recorded by the noted alchemist and collector Elias Ashmole, as is an extract on conjuration practices from the Heptameron, transcribed into English for practical use by a working group of magicians, before its first English publication by Robert Turner in 1655. These conjurations demonstrate the influence of earlier classic grimoires and sources, with components drawn from the Goetia, the Heptameron, and Reginald Scot's Discoverie of Witchcraft. The material includes spirit contracts for Agares, Padiel and Vassago, as well as techniques like lead plates for binding, and summoning into a glass of water, which hark back to the defixiones of Hellenistic Greece and the demonic magic of the Biblical world. This material forms part of a corpus of conjurations all written in the same hand and style of evocation, linking Goetic spirits and treasure spirits with the archangels and planetary intelligences (in Sloane MS 3825), and demon kings and Enochian hierarchies (in Sloane MS 3821), making it a unique bridge of style and content between what are often falsely seen as diverse threads of Renaissance magic. About the Author David Rankine is an occult scholar and author of more than 20 books on the subject of magic, the western esoteric traditions, folklore and mythology. Since the 1970's he has been researching and exploring magical and spiritual practices throughout history; a journey which has taken him from ancient Sumeria, Babylonia and Egypt through Greece, Rome and Britain through the middle ages and rennaisance and the modern Western Mystery Traditions. With Stephen Skinner he has produced works such as The Veritable Key of Solomon and the Goetia of Dr Rudd, both highly regarded groundbreaking works which make available previously unpublished source materials for the first time.
