"The success of the Galerie Beyeler, which led Ernst and Hildy Beyeler to found the Fondation Beyeler, began sixty years ago. Around sixteen thousand paintings, sculptures, and works on paper - not including prints and editions - passed through Baumleingasse 9, where the Beyelers took over an antiquarian bookstore in 1945. Its transformation into an art gallery was complete by 1947, and the address in Basel remains unchanged to this day." "An exemplary selection of me masterpieces that were handled by the gallery - and that have long since entered the great public and private collections of the world - can once again be seen in The Other Collection, making it possible to understand the distinctive beliefs, attitudes, and tastes of this remarkable couple. Among the highlights of this musee imaginaire are works by Bonnard, Braque, Cezanne, Dubuffet, Gauguin, Giacometti, Van Gogh, Gris, Kandinsky, Klee, Leger, Matisse, Miro, Mondrian, and Picasso." "This book contains 288 pages, 204 illustrations, 149 in color."--BOOK JACKET.

Festival of Friends and Foes takes us on a wild ride of good friends and strange assurances. Ethan, Camille and Jeremy plan on enjoying a fun weekend festival called Beltane with their families and other children with similar gifts. Thinking that this would give them time to share some of their stories with each other and help Ethan understand more about his family. Little did they know there was more thrills and chills waiting for them than they could have ever expected. Out witting giant animals, possessed assassins and curious kids, the three friends learn that they will all have to work together to make it out of this weekend without going crazy. If it weren't for their new friend Gretchen they would probably have been in a world of trouble with their parents too.

Marie’s job as a museum guard at the National Gallery in London offers her the life she always wanted, one of invisibility and quiet contemplation. But amid the hushed corridors surge currents of history and violence, paintings whose power belie their own fragility. There also lingers the legacy of her great-grandfather Ted, the warder who slipped and fell moments before reaching the suffragette Mary Richardson as she took a blade to one of the gallery’s masterpieces on the eve of the First World War. After nine years there, Marie begins to feel the tug of restlessness. A decisive change comes in the form of a winter trip to Paris, where, with the arrival of an uninvited guest and an unexpected encounter, her carefully contained world is torn apart.

Twice-told Proverbs and the Composition of the Book of Proverbs

The Book of Proverbs is permeated with patterns of repetition, yet to date no major work on Proverbs has dealt adequately with this phenomenon. Snell catalogs and analyzes repetitive words and verses and uses the data to draw conclusions about the composition of the book. He sees four stages in the composition of the book, with the earliest section dated no later than Hezekiah's reign. This book provides a wealth of information, including indexes of repetitive words and verses and an English translation of J. M. Grintz's major essay on the composition of Proverbs, which has previously been available only in Hebrew. The basic work done here will need to be considered in any future work on the Book of Proverbs and wisdom literature in general.

The book takes the reader through a simple .NET application, a more advanced application, and Internet development in .NET. The reader is also shown the differences between managed and unmanaged Visual C++ code and how to integrate them--critical information for migrating legacy C++ applications to the .NET architecture.
