Gebonden hardcover 252 pagina’s afm. 22,5 x 32 cm. ISBN: 97890292077046 Engelstalig A History of Adventure; Sailing Around the World with ‘Oosterschelde’ – Gerben Nab The Oosterschelde is the last remaining Dutch three-masted schooner. With this book you will sail on her wonderful sea journey (2012-2014) that takes you past the three most dangerous ‘capes’ in the world. Since 1992, the Oosterschelde has been exclusively exploring the world’s seas. In the autumn of 2012, the historic schooner will embark on its second journey around the world from Rotterdam. The people on board – captain, crew and a crew of several hundred guests – help write this travelogue in images and text. Their impressions climb and descend with the force of the winds and the violence of the waves. The ship sails to Cape Town via Cape Verde and Brazil. She follows ancient routes tried by adventurers in the distant past and stretched the world to its present size. The journey continues; along the Cape of Good Hope and Mauritius to Houtman Abrolhos, the cemetery of famous 17th century ships such as the Batavia. Cape Leeuwin is on the route, as is Tasmania and New Zealand. The Oosterschelde then crosses the Pacific Ocean to the most illustrious cape of all, Cape Horn. To conclude, two short expeditions to Antarctica follow, after which she eventually returns home in the spring of 2014. Conditie: zeer goed / als nieuw

Gebonden hardcover met stofomslag 260 pagina’s afm. 22 x 29,5 cm. ISBN: 3894340061 ISBN: 9783894340063 Engelstalig Africa 1900 / A Continent Emerges – Eric Baschet a history in documentary photographs A century ago, Africa was aptly named ‘The Dark Continent’ by Europeans. The successors of the ancient civilizations on the Mediterranean that had traded and fought with Europe for thousands of years were a part of our cultural sphere, and, in the South, the Cape Colonies had grown in the 16th through 18th centuries. The rest of Africa, apart from a few ports and sections of coast, remained an unknown land, a continent largely unmapped. The photographs in this volume cover a period of discovery and exploration in the heart of the continent and of the European colonies’ expansion and conflict in the South. We see tribal civilizations as they were first encountered – as yet unaffected by Europeans. We also see the contributions of European technology and society – the culture built dams and railways but also brought the gattling gun. Conditie: goed / zeer goed

Gebonden hardcover met stofomslag 464 pagina’s afm. 22,5 x 28,5 x 3 cm. ISBN: 9789490258085 Engelstalig Alba General and Servant to the Crown – Maurits Ebben, Margreit Lacy-Bruijn & Rolof van Hövell tot Westerflier Fernando Álvarez de Toledo, Duke of Alba, is one of the most formidable and controversial figures of the sixteenth century. He has long been depicted as an evil genius: the gruesome face of Spanish imperialism and dark suppressor of the revolt in the Low Countries. During his long and fascinating life Alba revealed wide-ranging skills and interests. A successful soldier, he was also a distinguished courtier and an influential diplomat, serving his monarchs, Charles V and Philip II, without fail. Moreover, he was an avid art collector. Previously unexamined data from various international archives and newly developed insights have now collectively formed a more nuanced image of the Grand Duke. In this book, sixteen leading historians from eight countries present their differing views on Alba’s life and career, shedding new light on this intriguing and influential leader who had strong political and religious convictions.

Gebonden hardcover 331 pagina’s afm. 16 x 23,5 cm. ISBN: 9780521564748 Engelstalig Calendrical Calculations – Nachum Dershowitz & Edward M. Reingold A valuable resource for working programmers, as well as a fount of useful algorithmic tools for computer scientists, this new edition of the popular calendars book expands the treatment of the previous edition to new calendar variants: generic cyclical calendars and astronomical lunar calendars as well as the Korean, Vietnamese, Aztec, and Tibetan calendars. The authors frame the calendars of the world in a completely algorithmic form, allowing easy conversion among these calendars and the determination of secular and religious holidays. Recensies: ‘Because years, months, and days don’t mesh simply, calendar making has been a challenge throughout history. Reingold and Dershowitz’s compendium, here in its third edition, has already established itself as the definitive reference on calendrical structures. Their manual displays conversions between all the major calendar systems as well as between many fascinating schemes from bygone civilizations.’ Owen Gingerich, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ‘One of the most fascinating books I’ve read all year. Takes chronology into the computer age with impressive erudition and elan. Just finding out what the calendar rules are is usually close to impossible: Calendrical Calculations tells you how to use them too. A must for everyone who worries about days, months, years – and why they never quite fit.’ Ian Stewart ‘ … a good, comprehensive documentation of software for calculating dates on very many calendars.’ P. Kenneth Seidelmann, Director of Astrometry, U.S. Naval Observatory ‘… something of immense value … a true labor of love, this cultural service to humanity should be in every library of the world.’ Choice ‘If you are interested in Calendars this book is a must have – an excellent mind-broadening book.’ Journal of the ACCU ‘ … this book must surely become the standard work on calendar conversions. No historian, chronologist or recreational mathematician should be without it.’ E.G. Richards, Nature Conditie: goed / zeer goed ex-libris op schutblad

Grote softcover met omslagflappen 240 pagaina’s afm. 22,5 x 34 cm. ISBN: 9783836503167 Tekst in zowel Engels, Duits als Frans Chinese Propaganda Posters / From the Collection of Michael Wolf – Anchee Min, Duo Duo & Stefan R. Landsberger Mao’s starring role in Chinese propaganda art With his smooth, warm, red face which radiated light in all directions, Chairman Mao Zedong was a fixture in Chinese propaganda posters produced between the birth of the People’s Republic in 1949 and the early 1980s. These infamous posters were, in turn, central fixtures in Chinese homes, railway stations, schools, journals, magazines, and just about anywhere else where people were likely to see them. Chairman Mao, portrayed as a stoic superhero (a.k.a. the Great Teacher, the Great Leader, the Great Helmsman, the Supreme Commander), appeared in all kinds of situations (inspecting factories, smoking a cigarette with peasant workers, standing by the Yangzi River in a bathrobe, presiding over the bow of a ship, or floating over a sea of red flags), flanked by strong, healthy, ageless men and “masculinized” women and children wearing baggy, sexless, drab clothing. The goal of each poster was to show the Chinese people what sort of behavior was considered morally correct and how great the future of Communist China would be if everyone followed the same path toward utopia by uniting together. Combining fact and fiction in a way typical of propaganda art, these posters exuded positive vibes and seemed to suggest that Mao was an omnipresent force that would accompany China to happiness and greatness.
