Lapis, the philosopher's stone, is the legendary substance that alchemists use to turn base metals into gold. Robert Kelly's fifty-year pursuit of its poetic equivalent--the words that transform the common things of life into art--yields the 127 new texts collected here. In these richly varied poems and prose poems--some occasioned by reading Dickinson and Yeats, visiting churches and art museums, traveling through Austria, France, Italy, and Ireland, and reliving the wounds of childhood and adolescence--Kelly describes personal experience and, by touching it with memory and imagination, makes it stranger than life itself. He is the diarist as dreamer, and the dreamer as alchemist. --David R. Godine / Black Sparrow Books.

"This book examines the history of the first glass, from its early sporadic occurrence, through the height of its production in the late second millennium BC, to its disappearance at the end of that millennium. It draws on an exceptionally wide range of sources including ancient texts detailing recipes and trade in glass, iconographic depictions in tombs and temples, archaeological excavation of the most important sites [including Amarna and Qantir], and the description of the glass objects themselves. The area covered includes the heart of glassmaking and use in Egypt and the Near East, and to a lesser extent those areas were [sic] glass might have been traded, for example the Levant and the Mycenaean Aegean. It also considers the life of the glassmaker, his or her place in society and relationship to other industries"--P. [4] of cover.

The amazing quality of lapis lazuli, the purity of its colour and the mystery of its origins have meant that it has been pursued through the ages as a rare and precious gemstone. In this book Sarah Searight seeks out the stone across a number of cultures and their histories and traverses through Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and Europe. She examines the different perceptions and the role of lapis lazuli from its origins and discusses how the stone has an enduring sacred dimension. She also outlines how the modern world perceives the stone.
