Émile Prisse d’Avennes. Oriental Art BU
(1000 items available)
A splendid reprint of Émile Prisse d’Avennes’s 1869 to 1877 survey L’Art arabe, one of the most outstanding surveys on Islamic art and architecture. Dazzling in its attention to detail as much as to historical, social, and religious context, this is a precious record of Arabic, Persian, and Ottoman heritage as well as of the history of thought between Europe and the Middle East.
