J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles: 2015. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Meticulously woven by hand with wool, silk, and gilt-metal thread, the tapestry collection of the Sun King, Louis XIV of France, represents the highest achievements of the art form. Intended to enhance the king's reputation by visualizing his manifest glory and to promote the kingdom's nascent mercantile economy, the royal collection of tapestries included antique and contemporary sets that followed the designs of the greatest artists of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, including Raphael, Giulio Romano, Rubens, Vouet, and Le Brun. Ranging in date from about 1540 to 1715 and coming from weaving workshops across northern Europe, these remarkable works portray scenes from the bible, history, and mythology. As treasured textiles, the works were traditionally displayed in the royal palaces when the court was in residence and in public on special occasions and feast days. They are still little known, even in France, as they are mostly reserved for the decoration of elite state residences and ministerial offices. This catalogue accompanies an exhibition of fourteen marvelous examples of the former royal collection that will be displayed exclusively at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center from December 15, 2015, to May 1, 2016. Lavishly illustrated, the volume presents for the first time in English the latest scholarship of the foremost authorities working in the field. Charissa Bremer-David is curator in the Department of Sculpture and Decorative Arts at the J. Paul Getty Museum. She is author of French Tapestries and Textiles in the J. Paul Getty Museum (Getty Publications, 1997) and has published extensively on French tapestries. 168 pages, 12 x 11 inches, 97 color and 10 black-and-white illustrations.

4 ELLIOTT, JOCK. " A Ha! Christmas! "
Grolier Club, New York: 2000. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Jock Elliott began collecting books after he returned home from World War II. His deep love for Christmas encouraged him to collect books about Christmas in England and America. When he began collecting, he was purchasing one book a month, sometimes even buying new books daily. Now, even as has become more selective in his purchases, he has acquired a collection of more than 3,000 books related to Christmas. Most of his books are first or only editions, and he has purchased other "firsts," including the first illustration of a Christmas tree and the first illustration of St. Nick by Thomas Nast. This book was created to accompany the exhibition held from December 6, 1999 to January 29, 2000. It traces the historical development of Christmas through 600 years of Christmas books, from a fifteenth-century illuminated miniature of the Nativity to How the Grinch Stole Christmas. All books are from the collection of Jock Elliot. It includes numerous illustrations including book covers and famous pictures presentations. The book was designed by Jerry Kelly and printed by the Stinehour Press.
