In Apocalyptic Cartography: Thematic Maps and the End of the World in a Fifteenth-Century Manuscript, Chet Van Duzer and Ilya Dines analyse Huntington Library HM 83, an unstudied manuscript produced in Lubeck, Germany. The manuscript contains a rich collection of world maps produced by an anonymous but strikingly original cartographer. These include one of the earliest programs of thematic maps, and a remarkable series of maps that illustrate the transformations that the world was supposed to undergo during the Apocalypse. The authors supply detailed discussion of the maps and transcriptions and translations of the Latin texts that explain the maps. Copies of the maps in a fifteenth-century manuscript in Wolfenbuttel prove that this unusual work did circulate.

"Les Belles figures et drolleries de la Ligue réunies par Pierre de L'Estoile illustrent les grands événements qui ont secoué la fin du règne d'Henri III jusqu'à la reconquête. de Paris par son successeur. Elles constituent un témoignage exceptionnel sur l'histoire des Seize et les stratégies de propagande médiatisées par des gravures d'actualité d'une rare violence pamphlétaire. Les notes personnelles de l'auteur ainsi que ses procédés de collage destinent le corpus iconographique à être le témoignage de la barbarie ligueuse et font de l'oeuvre un "théâtre de la cruauté", dont les images sanglantes entrent en résonance avec celles du Journal. Conforme au texte de l'exemplaire de la Bibliothèque nationale, la présente édition restitue pour la première fois l'intégralité des estampes, chacune d'elles étant située par rapport à l'actualité, interprétée en fonction du public visé et analysée sous l'angle de leurs intertextes (pamphlets, placards, libelles...). Le motif du "monstre" structure la marqueterie des Belles figures pour les désigner comme tragédie de la rébellion à travers une succession de tableaux hallucinants, dont L'Estoile fut le collectionneur lucide."--Page 4 of cover.

12. Civil war [2016]

Book
lxvii, 374 pages : maps ; 17 cm.
Caesar (C. Iulius, 102 44 BC), statesman and soldier, defied the dictator Sulla; served in the Mithridatic wars and in Spain; entered Roman politics as a democrat against the senatorial government; was the real leader of the coalition with Pompey and Crassus; conquered all Gaul for Rome; attacked Britain twice; was forced into civil war; became master of the Roman world; and achieved wide-reaching reforms until his murder. We have his books of "commentarii" (notes): eight on his wars in Gaul from 58 52 BC, including the two expeditions to Britain in 55 54, and three on the civil war of 49 48. They are records of his own campaigns (with occasional digressions) in vigorous, direct, clear, unemotional style and in the third person, the account of the civil war being somewhat more impassioned.This edition of the "Civil War" replaces the earlier Loeb Classical Library edition by A. G. Peskett (1914) with new text, translation, introduction, and bibliography. In the Loeb Classical Library edition of Caesar, Volume I is his "Gallic War"; Volume III consists of "Alexandrian War, " "African War, " and "Spanish War, " commonly ascribed to Caesar by our manuscripts but of uncertain authorship.".
