Click here to see 1,000 archaeology/ancient history books and 2,000 ancient artifacts, antique gemstones, antique jewelry! The European Emergence TimeFrame AD 1500-1600. DESCRIPTION: Hardback: 167 pages. Publisher: Time-Life Books Inc; (1989). ISBN: 0809464500. The Time Frame series was released in the late 80's-early 90's. Each volume undertakes to describe the major events that happened in one specific time period in the development of mankind’s civilization(s). The volumes are richly illustrated, and designed as an introduction to the time frame covered. Especially compelling are the artists interpretations or recreations of what various ancient civilizations would have looked like – their architecture, homes, monuments, cities, daily life, jewelry, food, family life, dwellings, occupations, etc. As just one instance, the ruins of Babylon and Ur, Athens and Rome hint at the incredible richness of those fabled cities. The artist’s recreations in this series are simply mind-numbing. This is as close as you can be to actually having been there. The entire series is truly a magnificent introduction to the history of the era. If you could have just one book (or series of books) to introduce the history of humankind, this would have to be it. The overviews are concise and well-written. Together with the illustration and pictures they impart a wonderful mental and emotional “picture” of what life must have been like in various civilizations and at various times. Done in a style so wonderfully characteristic of Time-Life’s publications, these are over-sized “coffee table” type books full of impressive imagery. The pictures of the world’s greatest art and architecture alone are worth the cost of these books. But don’t get the impression that these volumes are “fluff”. While a particular volume might not quite take the place as a university degree, the material is well-written, informative, and immensely intellectually gratifying, overview though it might be. This particular volume, “Time-Frame AD1500-1600”, is sub-titled “The European Emergence”. The material is divided into a number of subjects which will give you an idea of the rich content; and includes: “The Church Divided” – An Emperor’s Fading Dream – Corruption in the Church of Rome – Germany’s Protestant Revolution – Martin Luther – The Renaissance and The Humanist Dawn – John Frederick I, German Reformer – The Battle of the Books – The Peasant’s War of 1524-25 – The Confession of Augsburg and Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor – John Calvin, the Geneva Experiment – The Glory of God and Rome – Antwerp, Europe’s Commercial Capitol – Jesuit Missionaries, a World-Wide Mission. “The Conquest of the New World” – The Aztec’s Quetzalcoatl – Spain’s Explorer/Adventurers – An Aztec Encyclopedia – Hernan Cortez – Tenochtitlan, Aztec Capitol City – Aztec Arts and The Quetzal Bird – Brazil, Portugal’s Western Empire – Atahualpa, Inca Ruler – Boliva’s “Silver Mountain” – The Gold of El Dorado – Seville’s New World Gold. “Elizabeth’s England” – The Six Wives of Henry VIII – Europe’s Largest City, London, 1588 – London’s Globe Theatre (1599), A Stage for All the World – Tudor Artistry, The Mirror of an Age – Francis Drake, Walter Raleigh, and the Maritime Adventurers – 1588, The Spanish Armada and the Battle of Gravelines - The Gunpowder Revolution – Siege Cannons, Thunder of the Big Guns – Military Architecture, Strengthening the Defenses – Muskets, The Infantry’s Murderous Volleys – Firepower on the High Seas. “Russia’s Ruthless Czar” – Czar Ivan IV, “Ivan the Terrible” – Muscovy, from Poland to the Pacific – Moscow’s Kremlin – Church and State: A Marriage of Convenience – A German Account of Russia (1549) – Russian Conquest of Mongol Kazan (1552) – Saint Basil’s Cathedral – Alexandrovskaya Sloboda, Ivan’s Personal Domain – The Rise of the Romanov Dynasty. “The Ottoman Zenith” – The Fall of Hungary – Suleyman the Magnificent – The Sultan’s Janissaries, Europe’s First Standing Army – The Fall of Constantinople (1453), The Rise of Istanbul – Topkapi, The Sultan’s Seagirt Palace – The Ottoman’s Islamic Code – The Craft Guilds – Ottoman Mosques, A Legacy in Stone – The Naval Battle of Lepanto, Genoa, Venice, and The Ottoman Empire Square Off - The Proud Display of Privilege –The Changing Contours of Beauty – Parade of Masculine Pomp – Raiments of Indian Splendor – Ottoman Opulence. “The Moguls Ascendant” – Mogul Babur’s Conquest of Northern India – The Sultan of Delhi’s 1526 Defeat at Panipat – Kabul’s Garden of Fidelity - Muslim India, The Mogul Emperor Akbar – Rajput’s Gwalior Palace – Persian Indian Art – Fatehpur Sikri Akbar’s City of Victory – Treasures from the Mogul Imperial Workshops – Shah Jajan’s Taj Mahal. CONDITION: Like New. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR JACKET DESCRIPTION(S) AND FOR PAGES OF PICTURES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. The charge for this particular book reflects the actual USPS rates for Media Mail and a small charge for materials. Domestic rates include USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site). If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, I will combine multiple purchases at a greatly discounted rate. Canadian rates and international rates are higher but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow. Rates vary from country to country, you can email or message me for a quote. We do offer HUGE combined shipping discounts, on average (for domestic shipments) each additional book will cost about $1.50. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
