Boek cover Cabinets of Curiosities van Patrick Mauries (Hardcover)
(E)
All knowledge, the cosmos arranged on shelves, in cupboards, or hanging from the ceiling, 'infinite riches in a little room' - such were the cabinets of curiosities of the 17th century. This survey, now available in PLC, traces the amazing history of cabinets of curiosities, from their first appearance in the inventories and engravings commissioned by Renaissance nobles such as the Medici or the Hapsburgs, via those of the Dane Ole Wurm and the Italian polymath Athanasius Kircher, to the serious 17th- and 18th-century scientists Elias Ashmole and Levinas Vincent.

Boek cover Jewelry by Chanel van Patrick Mauries (Hardcover)
(E)
Coco Chanel's passion for fabulous jewels, for exceptional stones, for improbable marvels, produced pieces that were unparalleled in their insistence on luxury and refinement. Drawing inspiration from tradition, Chanel was never the slave of everyday formulas or mere market values. Yet she reinvented tradition in the most arresting and modern jewelry pieces, based on her love of colours, as well as her assured command of austere classical beauty. Chanel was a creature of contrasts: there was the Chanel of the most sumptuous baroque, of rococo mirrors and dazzling, playful, unrestrained...
