Novelty Fair, burlesquing history
Jo Briggs

, representing a year each, in the very same way that library copies of the Illustrated London News or Punch do for us. It is this Victorian urge to characterize each year (55 BC is Julius Cæsar, AD 1215 a Baron of the Magna Carta, AD 1630 Civil War and so on) that has persisted to the extent that 1848 and 1851 are seldom considered together, but rather as separate and discrete volumes, each with their own personality. However, with the digitization of nineteenth-century sources, such as newspapers, and the a­ bility to search across titles and years it is possible to begin to

The material and visual culture of the Stuart Courts, 1589–1619
Author: Jemma Field

This book analyses Anna of Denmark’s material and visual patronage at the Stuart courts, examining her engagement with a wide array of expressive media including architecture, garden design, painting, music, dress, and jewellery. Encompassing Anna’s time in Denmark, England, and Scotland, it establishes patterns of interest and influence in her agency, while furthering our knowledge of Baltic-British transfer in the early modern period. Substantial archival work has facilitated a formative re-conceptualisation of James and Anna’s relationship, extended our knowledge of the constituents of consortship in the period, and has uncovered evidence to challenge the view that Anna followed the cultural accomplishments of her son, Prince Henry. This book reclaims Anna of Denmark as the influential and culturally active royal woman that her contemporaries knew. Combining politics, culture, and religion across the courts of Denmark, Scotland, and England, it enriches our understanding of royal women’s roles in early modern patriarchal societies and their impact on the development of cultural modes and fashions. This book will be of interest to upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses on early modern Europe in the disciplines of Art and Architectural History, English Literature, Theatre Studies, History, and Gender Studies. It will also attract a wide range of academics working on early modern material and visual culture, and female patronage, while members of the public who enjoy the history of courts and the British royals will also find it distinctively appealing.

His cartoon The Landing of Julius Caesar had won him £300 and the commission for his two frescoes in charcoal, The Spirit of Religion . 41 The subject of Armitage’s entry was The Battle of Meeanee , the most decisive of Sir Charles Napier’s encounters

paradox. As a result of his research Time might well 2 Novelty fair wonder whether what is anticipated in 1851 is a revolution or an exhibition, or perhaps both. Of the years he calls forth from his volumes the first to appear is The Year One, a decrepit child, followed by Julius Cæsar, a Baron who signed the Magna Carta, and then Charles I and Cromwell. On searching out the French Revolution, personifications of the years 1792, 1830 and 1848 all rush out at once. Time turns to 1815, the personification of Peace, who directs him to the year 1851. But, rather than

As stressed previously, it must be remembered that this was a perception James personally promoted, and it did not prevent him from concurrently seeking armed resolutions to conflict. On this duality see Murdoch, ‘James VI’, 3–31; S. Murdoch and A. Grosjean, Alexander Leslie and the Scottish Generals of the Thirty Years’ War, 1618–1648 (London, 2014), 30–33, 39, 40–43.

Ficino, Jean Fernel, and Julius Caesar Scaliger were fundamental figures for Bacon, Descartes, Gassendi, Hobbes, Leibniz, and Newton. 105 ‘Se le osservazioni del Boyle, dell’Hegenardo, del VVillis, voglion che ’l sangue si nutrisca dagli elementi nitrati dell’aria; che si riscaldi nella fucina del cuore, donde schizza impetuoso alle vene, e con tortuoso Meandro di continovi circolamenti vi ritorna a ricucersi, e raffinarsi; che ammortito si affoghi, se non si sventola ò per gli spiragli della Trachea, ò per l’aperture de’ pori, che tratto fuor de’ corpi, si
