"Summer Fruit: A Country Garden Cookbook" by Edon Waycott, 1995 First Edition.

This is practically an art book, it's so lovely! No wonder Collins Publishers won awards for the series it came from. Besides offering lots of luscious summertime recipes, the volume is lavishly illustrated with photos so evocative of the season that you'll dream over them in the cold of winter.

As you'd expect, there are recipes for sweets, salads, drinks and jams, but those are amplified by many fascinating main dishes and appetizers -- all featuring sophisticated flavors, but generally quite easy to make. How about starting with a Plum Rum Fizz, some spicy pita chips and fruit salsa? Then you might savor a peach and ginger chicken stir-fry or perhaps sauteed shrimp sauced with gingered apricots. But save room for cobbler, ice cream, sorbet or maybe a cherry and ganache tart in a crunchy crust of ground walnuts with cinnamon.

You'll find plenty of inspiration for delicious and healthy summer meals in these 95 gorgeous pages created by Edon Waycott and photographer Kathryn Kleinman. Also included is a very useful illustrated glossary of more than 20 varieties of stone fruit, with tips on selecting, storing, preparing and preserving them.

The book measures 8 5/8" x 9 1/4" and is almost like new -- showing only minor wear to the dust jacket, which matches the pictorial cover inside. The endpapers are printed in full color, too.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail erinharris@comcast.net to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!

"The Impressionists: The great works and the world that inspired them" by Robert Katz and Celestine Dars.

More than 350 color plates feature in this gorgeous 288-page hardcover volume by two European experts in Impressionist art. Published by Barnes & Noble Books in 1997, it was elegantly printed in Spain.

As a particularly nice touch, the cover is a laminated pictorial matching the dustjacket. Both are in nice condition, having suffered only a few bumps. The interior is unmarked and bright, enhanced by vivid cobalt blue endpapers. I thought at first there was a little sunning of page edges, but this is too consistent and precise, so it must be shading integral to the printing process. Size is 10.5 by 11.25 inches and provenance is a New Mexico estate.

Both earlier and later printings of this book exist, issued by various publishers between 1991 and 2002. No wonder it's been in such demand; this is quite an authoritative presentation of the work of Monet, Manet, Pissarro, Degas, Renoir, Sisley, Bazille, Morisot and Cassatt.

nother great vintage art book from the estate of a New Mexico collector, this Durer volume was printed in Italy, so its plates are superb. More than half the book consists of full-color prints on heavy stock -- well worthy of framing, if you're willing to take it apart.

Accompanying the images is excellent informative text edited by Stefano Roffo. Size is about 8 by 11 inches (200 by 278 mm). Its dust jacket shows minor wear (most on reverse), but the interior is absolutely pristine. The cover, BTW, is printed identically to the dust jacket, not plain. The Gramercy Great Masters books were a very pretty series, published and distributed by Random House companies.

"Edward Hopper 1882 - 1967: Transformation of the Real" was issued in 1993 by the outstanding German publishing firm, Benedikt Taschen. Printed in Cologne, it features an enormous number of color plates fine enough to frame, a few black and white illustrations and an intelligent, comprehensive overview of the artist's work by Rolf Gunter Renner (translated by Michael Hulse). This appears to be the first English edition and was acquired in the U.K. The book is part of Taschen's Basic Art Series, published in large softcover format. Length is 96 pages, including a chronology, and size is about 9 by 11.75 inches (230 by 188 mm). Corners show very slight shelf wear and there's a bit of sunning at the top of the back cover, but overall condition is fantastically good. It seems to have barely been opened!

Great coffee table book for the art lover or gourmet!

The menus and recipes are by such culinary notables as Julia Child, Alice Waters and Rick Bayless. There's even a Renaissance feast by Lorenza de'Medici, designed to honor her oft-painted forebears.

Condition of this remarkable book is very good, showing only minor wear to the dust cover. The original $28 price tag appears on the back. Contents are clean and tight, with no inscriptions. It was published by Collins in San Francisco and has long been out of print.

On hold. $35.  

This extravagantly illustrated hardcover volume discusses the return of ornamentation to modern design -- which continued with a bang, eventually making Post-Modernism a household word.

Authors Robert Jensen & Patricia Conway could certainly spot an emerging trend. No wonder their book (subitled "The New Decorativeness In Architecture & Design") has become a classic, used for teaching and cited in connection with art exhibitions. It includes 485 photographs, 309 in full color, plus 35 architectural drawings, and runs to 297 pages. There are sections on Architecture & Ineriors; The Decorative Crafats; Furnishings & Lighting; and Patterning, Decoration & Usable Art.

Condition of this book is very good. Its contents are clear and tight, with no inscriptions or other marks. (Since it's often used as a text, markings are sadly common on lower-priced copies.)The dust jacket does show wear and a short rip on the back. Underneath, there's slight discoloration along the blue binding's outer edges.

Published at $40 by Clarkson N. Potter, Inc., ORNAMENTALISM has long been out of print. Measuring 10 x 10 inches, it's very heavy for its size.

There's no charge for insured U.S. shipping, with an equivalent discount on international delivery, and gift-wrap is always free when desired. Please e-mail to confirm availability, order or request more photos. Thanks for looking!
