Things Chinese by Ronald G. Knapp Summary

China's art objects and traditional manufactured products have long been sought by collectors—from porcelains and silk fabrics to furniture and even the lacquered chopsticks that are a distant relation to ones found in most Chinese restaurants. Things Chinese presents sixty distinctive items that are typical of Chinese culture and together open a special window onto the people, history, and society of the world's largest nation. Many of the objects are collectibles, and each has a story to tell. The objects relate to six major areas of cultural life: the home, the personal, arts & crafts, eating & drinking, entertainment, and religious practice. They include items both familiar and unfamiliar—from snuff bottles and calligraphy scrolls to moon cake molds and Mao memorabilia. Ronald Knapp's evocative text describes the history, cultural significance, and customs relating to each object, while Michael Freeman's superb photographs illustrate them. Together, text and photographs offer a unique look at the material culture of China and the aesthetics that inform it.

Killer Stuff and Tons of Money by Maureen Stanton Summary

One dealer's journey from the populist mayhem of flea markets to the rarefied realm of auctions reveals the rich, often outrageous subculture of antiques and collectibles. Millions of Americans are drawn to antiques and flea-market culture, whether as participants or as viewers of the perennially popular Antiques Roadshow or the recent hit American Pickers. This world has the air of a lottery: a $20 purchase might net you four, five, or six figures. Master dealer Curt Avery, the unlikely star of Killer Stuff and Tons of Money, plays that lottery every day, and he wins it more than most. Occasionally he gets lucky, but more often, he draws on a deep knowledge of America's past and the odd, fascinating, and beautiful objects that have survived it. Week in, week out, Avery trawls the flea and antiques circuit-buying, selling, and advising other dealers in his many areas of expertise, from furniture to glass to stoneware, and more. On the surface, he's an improbable candidate for an antiques dealer. He wrestled in high school and still retains the pugilistic build; he is gruff, funny, and profane; he favors shorts and sneakers, even in November; and he is remarkably generous toward both competitors and customers who want a break. But as he struggles for a spot in a high-end Boston show, he must step up his game and, perhaps more challenging, fit in with a white-shoe crowd. Through his ascent, we see the flea-osphere for what it truly is-less a lottery than a contact sport with few rules and many pitfalls. This rich and sometimes hilarious subculture rewards peculiar interests and outright obsessions-one dealer specializes in shrunken heads; another wants all the postal memorabilia he can get. So Avery must be a guerrilla historian and use his hard-earned knowledge of America's past to live by and off his wits. Only the smartest survive in one of America's most ruthless meritocracies. Killer Stuff and Tons of Money is many things: an insider's look at a subculture replete with arcane traditions and high drama, an inspiring account of a self-made man making his way in a cutthroat field, a treasure trove of tips for those who seek out old things themselves, and a thoroughly fresh, vibrant view of history as blood sport.

Coins of England & The United Kingdom (2019) by Emma Howard Summary

This historic reference work for British coins is still the only catalogue to feature every major coin type from Celtic to the present day, arranged in chronological order and divided into metals under each reign, then into coinages, denominations and varieties. Under Elizabeth II the decimal issues are separated from the pre-decimal coinages, with all decimal coinage since 1968 listed in a separate volume. The catalog includes up-to-date values for every coin, a beginner’s guide to coin collecting, numismatic terms explained and historical information about each British coin, from our earliest (Celtic) coins, Roman, Anglo-Saxon and Norman coins, the coins of the Plantagenet Kings, the Houses of Lancaster and York, the Tudors and Stuarts, to the more modern Milled coinage, minted for the first time in 1561 during the reign of Elizabeth I. From the earliest of times, coins have been used by states or monarchs to communicate with people; Coins of England is therefore not only a reference book for collectors, but a fascinating snapshot of British history, illuminating its economics, technology, art, politics and religion. As always, the content has been updated and improved throughout by the editors.

Park Avenue by Michael R. Zomber Summary

"In the summer of 1939, Munich, 'The Home of the Monks', was a lovely city." Feared SS General Sepp Dietrich drives through the almost bucolic tree lined streets. His SS driver stops the black Mercedes at the door of noted banker and art collector, Solomon Roth, who has traded his superb collection of Impressionist paintings to Reichsmarshall Herman Goering in exchange for the safe passage of his wife and children out of Nazi Germany. One painting remains, a magnificent self-portrait by Vincent Van Gogh. In the spring of 1945 Munich is a very different city, much of it transformed into a wasteland by Allied bombing. American army sergeant Henry, 'Hank', Dryden enters the former Roth home searching for weapons and takes the portrait. For half a century, the painting lies undiscovered in Dryden's closet in Del Mar, California until feeling his mortality, Hank, enlists the help of his grandson John, a public interest lawyer in Southgate, to determine if it is genuine and if so to sell it. John unwittingly enters the fascinating world of fine art auctions where the richest and most powerful men and women on earth play for stakes that dwarf any in Monte Carlo, Macao, or Las Vegas and millions depend on the wave of a hand or a finger to the nose. Based on true accounts and experiences accumulated during more than 40 years attending, bidding, and selling at auctions in the United States and Europe, Park Avenue is enriched by speci?c factual detail as well as a classic examination of the workings of the human heart as the Drydens are affected by the ageless lure of undreamt of wealth. Michael R. Zomber was born in Washington D.C. and educated at Oberlin College, Villanova University, the University of Illinois, and UCLA. He received his M.A. in English Literature from UCLA. The son of two Holocaust survivors who escaped Nazi Germany in 1939, he knew nothing of his Jewish heritage until the age of ten. Following this revelation he became aware of world history and developed a keen interest in the arms and armor of Europe, the Middle East, and Japan. His grandfather, Robert Eisner, collected paintings by the Impressionist masters and these images by Renoir, Degas, and Gaugain ?red his youthful artistic sensibility. In 1961 Parke Bernet Galleries sold Rembrandt's Aristotle Contemplating the Bust of Homer to the Metropolitan Museum for a world record price and from then on Michael Zomber followed the sale results of works of art at auction as closely as he followed major league baseball statistics.
