Ghirshman, Roman  
The Arts of Ancient Iran from its Origins to the Time of Alexander the Great
 Picture
Publisher: Golden Press, 1964 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Fair. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "In the beginning of the first millenium before Christ, three antagonists confronted each other in the Near East. There was the vast empire of the Assyrians, a Semitic people who were great warriors and great artists, and whose art attests both to their cruelty and their strength. Vying with them were the Urartu, a powerful tribe of Asian origin. And finally there were the Iranians who, after a long and intense struggle, succeeded in dominating the other two. These and the smaller groups - the Medes, the Scythians, the Cimmarians - were all peoples of considerable force and vitality, as is witnessed by the arts they left behind them. That their artistic achievements are as valid today as they ever were is amply illustrated by this book. Professor Ghirshman draws on an unparalleled knowledge of the period, on the experience of thirty years of excavating in the Iranian plateau, and on his extensive study of the work in the field done by others, notably the Russians. The result is a vivid and brilliant reconstruction and commentary on the life and art of the Iranian plateau people from their origins until Alexander the Great brought down the proud Achaemeinian dynasty. Illustrating the text are incomparable pictures in color and black and white showing such masterpieces as the bronzes from Hamadan, items from the treasure of Ziwiyeh, and the massive decorations ordered by Cyrus and by Darius for their palaces at Susa and Persepolis. The influence of Iranian art as it flourished under the Persians radiated outward until it touched not just the western world, but also into India and even distant Siberia. The development of this artistic genius is the thesis of this book." Almsot 600 photographs and fold-out map attached to rear of book. 440 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in FAIR condition; damage to top front edge.

Ghirshman, Roman  
Persian Art: The Parthian and Sassanian Dynasties 249 B.C. - A.D. 651
 Picture
Publisher: Golden Press, 1962 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "The art of the Sassanians, and thus of their fore-runners, the Parthians, had a profound influence on the art of medieval Europe and also on that of China and Japan. In view of this, it is remarkable that never before has a single volume been wholly devoted to the subject. Nor has the subject ever received the impressive and extensive treatment it gets in these pages, richly illustrated in color and black and white. The Parthians and Sassanians filled the eight-hundred-year gap between the collapse of the Hellenistic culture in Persia and the Moslem conquest. Alexander the great had tried to superimpose Greek traditions on Persia following his overthrow of the Achaemenian Empire in the late fourth century B.C. The results of these attempts, however, were not lasting. With the rise of the Parthians after his death, native Persian strains began to reappear. Parthian art has a character andcharm all its own. Because of its origin on the eastern steppes, it has a more 'Iranian' character even than the art of the Achaemenians, the previous non-Helloenic culture of the region. And the profoundly nationalistic characteristics of Parthian art formed the basis for the Sassanian art that followed. Sassanian art is admirable for its richness, its variety, and its beauty. It is even more remarkable as a generator and diffusor of forms. From the heart of the Asian continent, its influence reached out to the Atlantic on one side, the Pacific on the other. It is of utmost fascination and importance for it will be seen to have played a historic role in the stylistic development of both eastern and western art." 538 illustrations, 142 in color. 401 pages + fold-out map. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD condition; some edgewear.

Parrot, Andre  
The Arts of Assyria
 Picture
Publisher: Golden Press, 1961 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "The Assyrians were one of the mightiest peoples of the ancient world, a race for whom power and the pursuit of honor were paramount. Their art is an art of tremendous strength and of brutal, seldom serene majesty. The sculpture has long been well-known but never before have extensive color reproductions of Assyrian painting been available. This book presents for the first time the pristine freshness and wealth of color of the remarkable series of frescoes discovered in 1929 at Til Barsip by a French Expedition. The frescoes confirm what has long been evident in the sculpture: the Assyrians were not only great warriors, they were great artists too. Their successors, the Neo-Babylonians, who overthrew Nineveh in 612 B.C., took over the legacy of the past and kept to the great Mesopotamian tradition. So too did the Achaemenians who, though they came into frequent contact with the western world, nevertheless remained steeped in the tradition of their Near East ancestors. In his discussion of the recurrence of Mesopotamian themes in the art of surrounding regions, Dr. Parrot not only touches upon Assyrian influences in the treasure of Ziwiyeh but also deals with early Mesopotamian motifs in what are perhaps the most intriguing productions of all Near Eastern Art: the bronzes of Luristan. In conclusion he offers a valuable survey of Mesopotamian art techniques and two fascinating chapters on Mesopotamian literature and music." 395 illustrations. 380 pages + map with index. Book is VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD or better condition; shelfwear.
