      Noble Friends, Especially Costume Mavens:

      New in the UVA Fine Arts Library: THE ROBERT LEHMAN COLLECTION AT THE
      METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART, Vol. 12, "European Sculpture and
      Metalwork" by Frits Scholten (ISBN 9781588394415 or 9780691154893;
      our call number N611 .L43 N48 1986 v.12). This book is a collection
      catalog, and features aquamanilia, bronze sculpture, scupltures other
      than metal, medals, plaquettes, various metalwork, and various metal
      objects. The collection is mostly Italian, with some German work,
      from the 15th/16th century. There are some more modern pieces. Nearly
      all objects are shown in color. The aquamanilia are delightful water
      dispensers in the shape fantastic animals or human heads. The
      metalwork section includes tankards, boxes, jugs, urns, candle
      sticks, and other household items. It was the section on medals which
      . . . uh . . . struck me as most useful to Scadians. The majority of
      the medals show busts in profile. It's all about the hats, which are
      excellently rendered and could serve as models for reproduction
      headgear. Naturally there is an extensive bibliography, and a
      complete index to this volume.

      Other volumes in this series which might interest Scadians include
      Italian Paintings (v. 1.); Fifteenth to Eighteenth Century European
      Paintings (v. 2.); Illuminations (v. 4.); Italian
      Fifteenth-Seventeen th Century Drawings (v. 5);and Fifteenth to
      Eighteenth Century European Drawings (v. 6.).

      Yours Aye,

      Lord Mungo Napier, Shire of Isenfir's Unofficial Librarian
      (aka Garth Groff, UVA Library Cataloging and Metadata Services Dept.)
