Ars Memorandi:  A facsimile of the text and woodcuts printed by Thomas Anshelm at Pforzheim in 1502, Anshelm, Thomas; Georg Simler
8 Anshelm, Thomas; Georg Simler Ars Memorandi: A facsimile of the text and woodcuts printed by Thomas Anshelm at Pforzheim in 1502
Cambridge, Mass Houghton Library, Harvard University 1981 Paperback New 
New condition softcover, 39 pages illustrated. Woodcuts containing mnemonic devices for memorizing the events recorded in the Gospels, with explanations in Latin verse by Petrus von Rosehneim. No marks or flaws. No sign of wear or use.

From the book's introduction, “The woodcuts of the Ars Memorandi contain some of the most curious images ever printed. An eagle displays a pair of embracing lovers on its breast; an angel, a sack of grain perched on his head, carries a blazing sun in one hand and a figure of the Christ Child in the other. The oddity of these pictures, however, had its purpose. The eagle and the angel, as well as the lion and the ox, are symbols of the four Evangelists, and the additional objects or figures refer to specific events in the Gospels. These woodcuts, together with the accompanying text, were an aid for the reader in memorizing the events of the life of Christ.”

Paul Poiret embraced every aspect of art and life - theatre, painting, ballet, literature, cabaret, gastronomy. His rise to fame was meteoric, but by the end of his life he had descended into poverty and obscurity, brought about by many unfortunate circumstances not the least of which was the petty enmity of the House of Worth. This book focuses on his successes. François Baudot is a journalist and writer, and a main reporter for Elle Décor. His other titles in the Assouline Fashion Memoir series are Chanel, Alaïa, Christian Lacroix, Schiaparelli and Yohji Yamamoto.
