1 BUKAS, KAZIMIERZ; THOMAS, LAWRENCE L. & WHITFIELD, FRANCIS J. The Kosciuszko Foundation Dictionary: Volume I I Polish - English.
The Kosciuszko Foundation, New York: 1989. Eleventh Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
This second volume is not a simple "reversal" of the first volume. To a significantly high degree it is an independent work, although the two parts are complementary. Its somewhat smaller size is explained by the absence of English dialect and slang, of words restricted to Scottish, Australian, South African, Indian, and other usages, and of peculiarly American expressions replaceable by equivalents used on both sides of the Atlantic.

2 CAVANAUGH, JAN. Out Looking In: Early Modern Polish Art, 1890-1918.
University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles: 2000. First Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
Jan Cavanaugh's innovative study locates Polish artists at the core of one of the primary turn-of-the-twentieth-century modernist movements, the Central European Secession movement. Ten of the original fifty members of the Vienna Secession were Poles; they and other Polish artists participated actively in seccessionist exhibitions while also forming their own group, which exhibited throughout Europe. This work is the first comprehensive study in English of this significant period in Polish art. Includes an Index. "This is one of the most important critical analysies of turn-of the-twentieth-century Polish art. Out Looking In will inspire a broad response from a wide international circle of historians of art, literature, and artistic culture." -- Wieslaw Juszczak, Professor, Art Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Letters and Art History Department, University of Warsaw
