Summary:

Thomas Merton was the most popular proponent of the Christian contemplative tradition in the twentieth century. Now, for the first time, some of his most lyrical and prayerful writings have been arranged into A Book of Hours, a rich resource for daily prayer and contemplation that imitates the increasingly popular ancient monastic practice of "praying the hours." Editor Kathleen Deignan mined Merton's voluminous writings, arranging prayers for Dawn, Day, Dusk, and Dark for each of the days of the week. A Book of Hours allows for a slice of monastic contemplation in the midst of hectic modern life, with psalms, prayers, readings, and reflections.

Summary:

A Book of Hours contains 24 essays, one for each hour of the day, that seek to bridge the gap between definitive scientific philosophy and the sheer unadulterated beauty that Donald Culross Peattie envisioned within everyday life. The Boston Transcript referred to this collection as “science, in sheer poetry,” and the Chicago Daily Tribune mused that “it leaves one a better man for having read it” and offers “the inevitableness of natural laws and the truth of beauty, if one cares to seek it.”

Summary:

Entertaining, unexpected, and full of charm, the follow-up to Jessica Kerwin Jenkins’s Encyclopedia of the Exquisite presents a miscellany of engaging stories, detailing the intriguing customs, traditions, and guilty pleasures pursued throughout the ages. All the Time in the World takes its cue from an iconic component of medieval life, the book of hours, which prescribed certain readings and contemplations for certain parts of the day throughout the year. Divided into more than seventy-five entries, All the Time in the World is brimming with witty bons mots, interesting etymologies, and arresting anecdotes encompassing an array of cultures and eras. Subjects covered include the daylong ceremony of laying a royal Elizabethan tablecloth; the radicalization of sartorial chic in 1890s Paris; Nostradamus's belief in the aphrodisiac power of jam; the sensuous practice of sniffing incense in fifteenth-century Japan; the American fascination with flaming desserts; the short-lived artistic discipline of “lumia,” or visual music; the evolution of coffee from a religious ritual to a forbidden delight in the Middle East; Henriette d'Angeville's fearless and wine-fueled ascent of Mont Blanc; the elaborate treasure hunts concocted by London's Bright Young Things; and the musical revolution known as bebop. An antidote to the contemporary cult of “getting things done,” All the Time in the World revives forgotten treasures of the past while inspiring a passion for good living in the present. From the Hardcover edition.

Summary:

One of the most powerful poetry collections of the twentieth century, now in a beautiful new edition Although The Book of Hours is the work of Rilke’s youth, it contains the germ of his mature convictions. Written as spontaneously received prayers, these poems celebrate a God who is not the Creator of the Universe but rather humanity itself and, above all, that most intensely conscious part of humanity, the artist. Babette Deutsch’s classic translations—born from “the pure desire to sing what the poet sang” (Ursula K. Le Guin)—capture the rich harmony and suggestive imagery of the originals, transporting the reader to new heights of inspiration and musicality.

Summary:

IN THE 1470s, a Picard nobleman called Jean de Carpentin secured the services of one of the most innovative illuminators working in Bruges. Known as the Master of the Dresden Prayer Book after one of his other masterpieces, this artist enriched the pages of Carpentin's book of hours with a rich programme of imagery, including 22 full-page miniatures, 42 historiated initials and 64 boldly coloured borders. Erudite, affecting, and often playful, the Dresden Master's illuminations transformed Jean de Carpentin's hours into one of the most remarkable books of its day. Yet the Carpentin Hours is virtually unknown to scholarship and the wider public, having always remained in private hands. The present study offers a detailed assessment of its contents, purpose and provenance, and its abundant illustrations reveal the Carpentin Hours to be the finest demonstration of the Dresden Master's wit, invention and technical virtuosity.
