Seller Comments:

Size: 28.6 x 25 x 2.6 cm; Hardback with D/J in good condition. A heavy book that may require extra postage costs. Review The press has been sniffy about the way the National Maritime Museum has "dumbed down" its galleries during the recent refurbishment but there's no sign of such a strategy in this handsome companion to its international exhibition on Time. A perfect antidote to millennial tosh, The Story of Time captures the diverse ways in which cultures experience, measure, and resist the passage of time. Visually rich, its images reproduced to a very high quality, nonetheless, if this book were just a catalogue, the reader's pleasure would soon pall. Consider, for example, the picture of a Babylonian baked clay tablet on which are recorded New Moons for the years 103 to 100 BC. What better icon of futility could there be than this table of numbers, endlessly iterated? There is little else as drab as this: the exhibits comprising everything from paintings to astronomical instruments to textiles to maps and documents, from places and times far too numerous to list here are a credit to the skills and imaginations of the curators. But all these things, by definition, deal with something that can only be experienced, never shown. On this point the book, interspersed throughout with short, eclectic articles on all kinds of subjects related to time, perception, decay the list goes on wields a major advantage over its parent exhibition. Particularly refreshing is Joy Hendry's short account of the eclectic approach to time taken in Japan. In common with other peoples in the region, the Japanese lack a notion of time as a continuing entity. "Marked with events and periods but otherwise relatively homogenous", Japanese time is an agglomeration of local and overseas calendars and zodiacs and not a clay tablet in sight. Simon Ings. Synopsis Multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural, The Story of Time is published to mark the millennium and examine the very quality that gives the millennium its meaning.

Seller Comments:

In a vg slipcase. rom Publishers Weekly Just in time for the new millennium comes this enormous, amply illustrated compilation of 23 essays on aspects of time from experts in various disciplines, among them history and historiography, music, geology, literary criticism, anthropology, religion and the history of engineering. The venerated art historian E.H. Gombrich contributes a compact "History of Anniversaries, " from the so-called "jubilee" of the Hebrew Bible through a famous 1769 "Shakespeare Jubilee" and on to our present glut of commemorations. John MacDonald's intriguing "Inuit Time" explains how traditional cultures of the North American Arctic taught their children to wake up early in the morning, and how newly Christian tribal communities (who had to know which day was the Sabbath) grappled with the alien concept of weeks. Lorne Campbell describes some temporal problems of portraiture, as when a slow-working painter finds that her subject's appearance has changed over multiple sittings. Jonathan Betts outlines "The Growth of Modern Timekeeping: From Pendulums to Atoms." And Umberto Eco zips from St. Augustine to the modern philosophy of language to the Millennium Bug in a typically provocative foreword. Three hundred color pictures and photos, many with long explanatory blurbs, portray such time-related items as Renaissance sundials and klepsydras (water-clocks), the Hindu god Vishnu (creator and destroyer of world and time) and a bizarre French clock from 1795, which indicated not only 60-minute hours and 24-hour days, but also the short-lived revolutionary system of decimal time, whose 10 hours a day had 100 minutes each. The entire enjoyable and visually impressive volume is timed to coincide with an exhibit at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England, where the year 2000 will officially begin.
