Navy paper over boards, gilt stamped titling to spine, navy endpapers and pastedowns, in publisher’s dust jacket featuring full-color pictorial wrap of a landscape, navy and white text to front, navy text to spine and back, navy text to cream inside gate flaps. Mild edgewear, otherwise clean, tightly bound, and excellent. In a Near Fine dust jacket now protected in a Mylar sleeve. Very minor edgewear, otherwise excellent. 198 pp. Replete with full-color and black-and-white images. Alongside illustrations, Klonk's writing discusses the collaboration of science and art in “British landscape art in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries” (from the dust jacket). Klonk finds that this interaction involves “phenomenalism…a commitment to the scrupulous observation of particular phenomena…[which] was common to both artists and scientists” (from the dust jacket). This book’s “bold interpretation and interdisciplinary approach will also make it of great interest to anyone concerned with this crucial period in British cultural and intellectual history” (from the dust jacket).
