His philosophy was streamlined: "if there's elbow room for the activities you need, it's good, but anything beyond that is not good. It was less than square feet. Then he learned that his award-winning house would be illegal to construct. The size -- or lack thereof -- violated the International Residential Building Code that specified the smallest home could not be less than square feet and must contain at least one room of square feet. Shafer said, "Once I found out it was illegal to live in a small house, I had to do it. He had a point to prove. He said, "It couldn't be a trailer.
It had to be very houselike. I wanted a home I could control For 10 years, he encouraged Tiny Housers to build the houses they wanted, live where they could, break the law, and ignore zoning rules. Morris developed guilds and societies for craftsmen. In his 50s, he joined the Democratic Federation and spoke hundreds of times to support socialism in England. Shafer took pleasure in getting fired up. Simplification requires that we consciously resist this system and replace it with a more viable one of our own making.
For some of us, it requires that we either break laws or expend the time and money required to change those laws that currently prohibit an uncomplicated life.

The DIY Tiny House gives a hands-on life instead of being an onlooker who can only feel alive through accumulation. Downsizers consistently give three reasons for going tiny: 1 to preserve their retirement nest egg; 2 to have fewer things to take care of; 3 to have more free time. Some Tiny Housers are on the way up.

They see the movement as a social and economic movement where they can build an entrepreneurial niche. These Tiny Housers are the architects, carpenters, writers, graphic designers, bloggers, social media evangelists, and lifestyle specialists. William Morris and Jay Shafer both mastered the tools of their time.
The Story of the Glittering Plain was published in an edition of in May and sold out in 3 months. The Kelmscott Press produced 52 works in 66 volumes. It created its own mini-revolution and was the inspiration behind the private presses of the early 20th century. Every person who felt moved to evangelize about the movement nabbed a URL and staked a personal claim in the Tiny House narrative. Reputations were built through a mix of useful information, personality-driven writing, and consistent attention to the excitement and drama of being part of a movement.
The rise of social media like Twitter and Facebook carried the conversation about the Tiny House movement to the masses. Tiny entrepreneurs learned to use social media marketing tools, amassing hundreds of thousands of followers. She stayed for three years while she was working as the sustainability lead for a construction company. She built the house to represent her core beliefs: that scale is key to sustainability, that having too much can be as complicated and uncomfortable as having too little, and that design matters.

Published by Printed for the author, London About this Item: Printed for the author, London, Two volumes bound as one, quarto, with 16 engraved maps and plates mostly folding , including the additional plate of "Teepye lobsters" which does not appear in Dalrymple's list; contemporary tree calf, green morocco spine label; a very good tall copy.
First edition: Dalrymple's famous collection of Spanish and Dutch voyages to the Southern Ocean, a foundation book for any voyage library. Passionately involved in the argument over the possible existence of a southern continent, Dalrymple here partially translates some twelve original accounts which support his belief in its existence. The various Spanish and Dutch accounts, beginning with Magellan's voyage of , include many of interest to northern Australia, including those of Mendana, Quiros and Tasman.
The book encompasses the state of voyaging and discovery in the Pacific in , and was published at approximately the time of the return of Cook's first voyage, in the Endeavour. It thus neatly encapsulates the story of maritime discovery right up to the point when Cook would change it all. This was more than just a coincidence of timing: much of Dalrymple's work had been done in the expectation that he would himself have the command of the Endeavour voyage to observe the transit of Venus, but partly because of his insistence on being given an Admiralty commission, the command went to Cook instead.
Dalrymple , the great hydrographer, first made his career in the East India Company. His personality was certainly not well suited to command: quarrelsome and arrogant, he was quick to take offence and his disappointment at missing out on the command is hinted at in the remarkable "undedications" of this work: to Byron 'who discovered scarcely anything but Patagonians' and to Wallis, the discoverer of Tahiti, who 'infatuated with female blandishments forgot for what he went abroad and hastened back to amuse the European world with stories of enchantments. An avid mercantilist, [he] theorized that the unexploited lands of the South Pacific would serve to augment England's expanding trade' Hill catalogue.

The book's publication effectively announced the dawn of the golden age of Pacific exploration. Dalrymple's long introduction on trade and his 'investigation of what may be farther expected in the South Sea' expound his belief in the existence of a "Great Southern Continent", a theory firmly laid to rest when Cook later sailed right over it. This is an excellent copy of the book. Collations given by bookdealers and bibliographers sometimes vary, particularly regarding the engravings, and are not helped by Dalrymple's eccentric list of plates in his Introduction; this copy is exactly as we have seen the book several times before.
Dalrymple lists fifteen plates, all of which are present in this copy along with an additional plate of "Teepye lobsters" which does not appear in Dalrymple's list. Provenance: Private collection Australia. More information about this seller Contact this seller 9. Published by London: George G.

Burne-Jones's style does not betray any immediately obvious Indian influence, though he was related by marriage to John Lockwood Kipling, a great champion of Indian art, whose pen and ink studies were first shown, with sample wares, at international exhibitions in London , , Vienna , and Paris ; in they went on display in the new India section of the South Kensington Museum.
A strong serpentine theme can, however, be detected running through Burne-Jones's work, famously in his The Doom Fulfilled Perseus slaying the Sea Serpent ; in the windows of St Margaret's, Rottingdean; his portrayal of Sidonia von Bork with her robe patterned with "branching and knotted snakes, black upon the golden stuff"; and most suggestively the pencil sketch Serpent Women Around Globe at the Art Institute of Chicago The Leonora Hall Gurley Memorial Collection, Although the book has been described as "fanciful" David Boyd Haycock in ODNB , it remains an important record, and is a superb example of an early photographically illustrated book involving three of the key players in the development of the form.
James Fergusson was one of Victorian Britain's most prominent architectural historians, respected by Ruskin, and the dedicatee of Schliemann's great work Tiryns, as "the historian of architecture, eminent alike for his knowledge of art and for the original genius which he has applied to the solution of some of its most difficult problems". He quickly made his fortune "and was able to retire, and as 'an expert draughtsman with a camera-lucida' he explored India 'chiefly on a camel's back, from end to end and from side to side' exploring the rock-cut temples of Ajanta, Ellora, and elsewhere" ODNB.
In he was preparing a display on Indian architecture for the Paris Exhibition, and was looking for sculptures, or architectural fragments, to cast "to draw attention [and] give some character" to his exhibition of photographs. He was "not a little astonished" to discover that " large collection of marbles" from Amravanti Tope - a site that he had "thought it well worth a voyage to India specially for the purpose of exploring" - were stored for their preservation in the coach-house of the India Museum at Leadenhall Street Preface.
He set to work on a monograph describing the site, and to this end the pieces were photographed by William Griggs, the Museum photographer, and inventor of the photolithographic process by which many of the plates in the present work were produced. In the course of his researches on the subject, Fergusson then uncovered "a beautiful series of drawings" of Sanchi Tope in the Indian Office library, at the same time receiving a set of photographs of the same monument from Lieut.
James Waterhouse, which lead him to reconsider the form of the book, expanding it to combine the accounts of the two monuments. Waterhouse, whose images arrived so serendipitously, went on to become President of the Royal Photographic Society , having been awarded the Society's Progress Medal in for his work on dye sensitising. Griggs's pioneering work in chromo-photolithography, and with the half-tone and collotype processes, led to him being obituarized by the Printer's Register as "that venerable craft father of ours".

First and sole edition, celebrated for including Samuel Johnson's first appearance in print and the mention of him in the preface as "a Commoner of Pembroke-College in Oxford".
Johnson spent only thirteen months at Pembroke October to December , forced to leave through financial constraints. His stay may have been short but the nineteen-year old Johnson made a strong impression on his fatherly tutor William Jorden. The distinguished biographer Walter Jackson Bate relates that "within a few weeks Jorden, by now quite aware of his pupil's talents, suggested that he translate, as a Christmas exercise, Alexander Pope's poem Messiah into Latin verse.
The premise of Pope's Messiah is the medieval belief that Virgil's Fourth Eclogue, which predicts the birth of a child who will bring a golden age, is a prophecy of Christ. These lines [pp. But he wrote half of them in one afternoon, according to [his former schoolmate] Edmund Hector, and finished the poem the following morning. A year or so after Johnson left Oxford, the work was included in a Miscellany of Poems edited by a young Pembroke tutor, John Husbands, who died a year after the collection appeared. The list of subscribers included almost half of all the members of Pembroke College who were present at the time Johnson was there.
But Johnson's own name is not among them, in this book that contains the first surviving publication of any of his works. He may not even have known that the book was appearing. Or, if he did, he could have hardly wished to be reminded - at that time - of the year at Oxford. That year and all it meant, or could mean, was by then hopelessly finished; his ties with it had been cut" Samuel Johnson, , pp. Chapman and Hazen p.

Also shown is the male anatomy of the testes, vas deferens, seminal vesicles and penis. Fludd's own anatomical work is heavily influenced by Vesalius and his great Fabrica of just 88 years earlier. His books were all printed on the Continent, as he did not have to pay towards the production costs which he would have done in London, with the result that they were little read in England.
This plate depicts the Paracelsian physician in his chair, book open to the appropriate passages, with the figure surrounded by vials of different colored urine, which revolve heliocentrically around his seated body like planets in the Copernican system here, the physician himself, his heart animated by the Holy Spirit, takes the place of the sun, the light of which resides in his heart.
