Santa Barbara Style
Santa Barbara Style
Santa Barbara. For centuries this temperate, inviting locale has glowed with subtle but unmistakable light-- a beacon of warmth beside the profound blue of the Pacific. From the Chumash, whose predecessors can be traced to 11,000 b.c.e., to the present-day resident, vacationer, and tourist, diverse and countless peoples have been enchanted and enraptured by Santa Barbara's spell.

In Santa Barbara Style, author Kathryn Masson and photographer James Chen, invoke this magic and invite us to walk with them through winding and abundant gardens, onto the grounds of grand estates, and into the great houses of this region. Here we find the work of such architectural luminaries as Addison Mizner, Bertram Goodhue, and Reginald D. Johnson. We wander from the historic adobe mansion Casa de la Guerra-- built in the early-nineteenth century by town patriarch Jose de la Guerra-- to the spectacular, and aptly named, Villa Lucia (House of the Light)-- built in 1989. We are given an intimate look at George Washington Smith's Spanish Colonial Revival masterpiece, Casa del Herrero; and a broad view of Lotusland, the thirty-seven acre horticultural paradise. With each turn of the page, we see the beauty, grace, and style of Santa Barbara.

Tuscan Temple - Rievaulx Terrace
Tuscan Temple - Rievaulx Terrace
Rievaulx Terrace & Temples is a site located in North Yorkshire, England overlooking Rievaulx Abbey and owned by the National Trust. The site is a grass-covered terrace following a serpentine course across the side of a wooded escarpment overlooking the ruins of the Abbey. At either end of the terrace stand two mid-18th century follies: small Palladian "temples". The site was created in 1758 by Thomas Duncombe III who had inherited it and the adjoining Helmsley estate some 10 years previously. His desire was to complement, and perhaps even surpass, the more formal terrace and temples laid out in about 1730 by his grandfather at Duncombe Park a mile away. It is thought that he may have planned to join the two terraces by a scenic drive along the River Rye. Two "temples" are on the site. At the south-east end of the terrace is the domed Doric or Tuscan Temple, thought to be a scaled-down version of the mausoleum at Castle Howard a few miles away. The pavement floor came from the choir of Rievaulx Abbey. At the opposite end stands the Ionic Temple, inspired by the Temple of Fortuna Virilis in Rome. It was intended as a banqueting house and the central table is still set as if for a meal. It is decorated with elaborate ceiling paintings and is furnished in the period style. The basement housed the kitchen and living quarters and nowadays it holds an exhibition on English landscape design in the 18th century.
This is a bifolium from a copy of Augustine's "De Trinitas" that was produced in Italy, probably in Bologna, c.1300. It was embelishes, probably in the nineteenth or twentieth century. The two leaves are not consecutive. ”. Page 1 begins in Book 12, part way through Chapter 23 and the text continues to the first few words of Chapter 2 of Book 13 at the end of page 2. Page 3 begins again in Book 13, part way through Chapter 16 and continues to part way through Chapter 18 at the end of page 4. The size of the bifolium is 299mm x 428mm (11 8/10ins. x 16 8/10ins.). The bifolium was not originally illuminated, only decorated with: - One ten-line “puzzle” initial in red and blue with very fine red and blue penwork extensions the height of the page, three two-line initials, two in red with fine blue penwork and one in blue with fine red penwork and seventy-six letters touched with red. At some time, probably in the nineteenth or twentieth century, a full illuminated border has been added in the Tuscan Renaissance style of the late fifteenth century. It has been painted in dull colours. GENERAL COMMENTS: - Whilst there are some small, natural flaws in the vellum and two cuts in the outer margin of the right hand leaf, this is a nice bifolium of an important text. It is a welcome addition to the collection.
