The 'Italy Trip'. Highlights of Mr Mann's History of Art Tour.

Janet Barker, compiler:

 

In 1980 Janet and a friend retraced William Mann's History of Art tour for Class 12 at Michael Hall School, which they had taken in 1959. William Mann gave them tape-recorded notes, printed here together with Janet's 1980 impressions and photos. It makes a pleasing small book for anyone contemplating making such a trip or whose children may be doing so. William Bishop: Awake in the Labyrinth. A composition in three movements. Privately printed, 2011. The author's previous two works are now published together with a third part. The narrator takes us through the 'everyman' Hero 's daily musings on life and its meaning, philosophy and belief. He is modest, self-deprecating and shrewd in pursuing his goal towards realisation of a higher self through self-doubt and illusion. It is a very well-written trilogy, often poetic, gentle and undogmatic and will resonate with many in their similar searches. Each chapter is delightfully headed with one of the author's own photographs, enhancing the reflections. A well-presented memoir for those who like autobiographical writing that is not necessarily about the famous.

A very interesting comparison of the Hereford Mappa Mundi and the Ebstorf Map. David A.Suffolk has spent much time and effort in making a accurate copy of the Ebstorf Map.This booklet is based on a talk he gave to the Anthroposophical Society Sydney Australia.
