13 Cleary, Simon Esmonde ROME IN THE PYRENEES Lugdunum and the Convenae from the First Century B. C. to the Seventh Century A. D.
Routledge 2008 0415426863 / 9780415426862 Hardcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear else Fine. ; Routledge Monographs in Classical Studies; 184 pages; Rome in the Pyrenees is a unique treatment in English of the archaeological and historical evidence for an important Roman town in Gaul, Lugdunum in the French Pyrenees, and for its surrounding people the Convenae. The book opens with the creation of the Convenae by Pompey the Great in the first century B. C. And runs down to the great Frankish siege in A. D. 585 and its aftermath. Now the town of Saint-Bertrand-de-Comminges, Lugdunum is one of the best-known Roman towns in Gaul, with a rich selection of monuments at the town itself and important remains in the countryside, such as the classic villa at Montmaurin or the votive altars, cinerary caskets and sarcophagi in the local marble. The book traces how the Convenae used their marble to help create their identity, invisible before Pompey but amongst the richest and most distinctive in Gaul by the second century A. D. Drawing on his own excavations at Saint-Bertrand and the extensive earlier and recent work there, Simon Esmonde Cleary combines a clear description of the buildings and monuments of Lugdunum and of its countryside with a discussion of what they can tell us about the impact of Rome on this remote corner of its empire. Contains a guide to the visible Roman remains of the area.

14 Couturier, Sonia & Pierre Rosenberg (Pref. ) Et Al. DRAWN TO ART French Artists and Art Lovers in 18th Century Rome
Silvana Editoriale 2012 883662054X / 9788836620548 Paperback Near Fine 
Very light shelfwear else fine. ; In the eighteenth century's burgeoning culture of travel and "Grand Tours," Rome was the essential destination. From all over Europe, artists jostled with art lovers and collectors of antiquities, each influencing the other in their respective ambitions. The cult of Rome was particularly strong in France, and this volume looks at more than 100 works by artists such as Hubert Robert, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and Jacques-Louis David, who made pilgrimages to the "Eternal City" and who were decisively influenced by their time there. The works are contextualized across five different sections: the first focuses on the tradition of academic training in Rome; the second explores the depiction of the city's landscape and surrounding countryside; the third looks at Rome and Paris' cultures of art lovers, patrons and artists; the fourth section examines the eighteenth-century conception of antiques; and the final section looks at Rome's annual festivals, and their influence on French artists. ; 256 pages

15 Craveri, Benedetta & (Eliane Deschamps-Pria, Trans. ) L'AGE DE LA CONVERSATION

Light wear to corners. One corner is creased. Scholars' bookplate to inner cover. ; Du règne de Louis XIII à la Révolution, la société française a élaboré un art de vivre dont la conversation fut l'ingrédient essentiel. Née comme un simple passe-temps, comme un jeu destiné au délassement et au plaisir, bientôt élevée au rang de rite cardinal de la société mondaine, elle s'ouvrit peu à peu à l'introspection, à l'histoire, à la réflexion philosophique et scientifique, au débat d'idées. Son théâtre privilégié était les " ruelles ", puis les salons où la noblesse, ayant déposé les armes et exclue de la sphère politique, fondait désormais sa supériorité sur un code raffiné de bonnes manières et un idéal de perfection esthétique. ; 486 pages

19 Drinkwater, John & Hugh Elton (Eds. ) FIFTH-CENTURY GAUL A Crisis of Identity?
Cambridge University Press 1992 0521414857 / 9780521414852 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket 
Small tears at bottom of spine panel of DJ. Former owner's bookplate on inner cover. ; 398 pages; The papers presented in this book take as their subject the military, political and economic changes forced upon the inhabitants of Gaul during the fifth century AD. They seek to describe and explain how Gallo-Romans of all orders of society reacted to barbarian invasion and the growing debilitation of the western imperial government. The unusually wide range of topics dealt with allows the Gallic experience to be viewed and interpreted from many different directions. Much is made of the problematic, because highly subjective, nature of the literary sources; but close attention is also given to modern advances in our understanding of the archaeological and numismatic data. The whole presents a picture of a society under immense stress, as the people of the Gallic provinces abandoned, perforce, their allegiance to Roman emperors and yielded to the rule of Germanic kings, while yet preserving a significant element of their late antique culture.

Clothing, jewelry, animal remains, ceramics, coins, and weaponry are among the artifacts that have been discovered in graves in Gaul dating from the fifth to eighth century. Those who have unearthed them, from the middle ages to the present, have speculated widely on their meaning. This authoritative book makes a major contribution to the study of death and burial in late antique and early medieval society with its long overdue systematic discussion of this mortuary evidence. Tracing the history of Merovingian archaeology within its cultural and intellectual context for the first time, Effros exposes biases and prejudices that have colored previous interpretations of these burial sites and assesses what contemporary archaeology can tell us about the Frankish kingdoms. Working at the intersection of history and archaeology, and drawing from anthropology and art history, Effros emphasizes in particular the effects of historical events and intellectual movements on French and German antiquarian and archaeological studies of these grave goods. Her discussion traces the evolution of concepts of nationhood, race, and culture and shows how these concepts helped shape an understanding of the past. Effros then turns to contemporary multidisciplinary methodologies and finds that we are still limited by the types of information that can be readily gleaned from physical and written sources of Merovingian graves. For example, since material evidence found in the graves of elite families and particularly elite men is more plentiful and noteworthy, mortuary goods do not speak as directly to the conditions in which women and the poor lived. The clarity and sophistication with which Effros discusses the methods and results of European archaeology is a compelling demonstration of the impact of nationalist ideologies on a single discipline and of the struggle toward the more pluralistic vision that has developed in the post-war years. ; 1.05 x 9.24 x 6.38 Inches; 272 pages
