When Tracy and Sebastian go to stay with their great aunt in her old castle in the Highlands of Scotland, they are intent on searching for a secret, long-lost hidden chamber which legend says hides priceless treasure that has never been found.

Unfortunately for the children, a malevolent ghost has been haunting the castle for four centuries, waiting to wreak revenge. In searching for the hidden chamber, the children are unwittingly putting themselves in great danger.

Unbeknownst to them, witchcraft was once practised in the castle, and sinister dark magic is still lurking within the castle walls waiting to be unleashed again. On Tracy's bedroom wall in the castle, there is a mysterious painting which holds a very dark and terrifying secret...

It was night. Suddenly Tracy awoke with a jolt. Something had disturbed her in her sleep. There seemed to be the sound of someone crying in the distance. A feeling of panic came over Tracy as for a moment she didn't know where she was. Everything around her was pitch black...

The 132 drawings catalogued document most of the major examples of ancient Roman pictorial art known to seventeenth-century Rome. They include early finding such as the Aldobrandini Wedding, the Nile mosaic from Palestrina, tha marble pictures from the Basilica of Junius Bassus, and later finds such as the Harbour Landscape (found in 1668) and the Tomb of Nasonii (1674). Detailed accounts are given of the discoveries, and a general introduction assesses the significance of the Cassiano assemblage within the wider context of contemporary antiquarian interest in ancient painting, its collectors and copyists. Cataogue entries describe and discuss the drawings in graet detail, relating them to the original mosaics and wallpaintings as they survive in their present state of preservation. All drawings catalogued are reproduced, mostly on a large scale and mostly in full colour. They are frequently accompanied by illustrations, also in colour, of the ancient originals.

Nolten The Painter

RRP $274.99

When one thinks of German artist-novels and Bildungsromane, works long available in translation come to mind - by Goethe, Novalis, Hoffmann, Stifter, Keller, or more recently by Mann, Kafka, Musil, or Grass. Yet Eduard Morike's provocatively subtitled "Maler Nolten: Novelle in zwei Teilen" ("Nolten the Painter: A Novella in Two Parts", 1832) has remained neglected and misunderstood, and until now has never been translated into English, despite its obvious ties to other artist-novels and its striking modernity in playing with conventions of narrative authority and heroic identity. Witness the subtle irony of the opening sequence, in which the narrator is subverted by hints at his own clumsiness and intimations about the dire truths that lurk behind the protagonist Nolten's relationships to his male friends and to the seductive yet somehow frightening women in his life.Or the interplay between the narrator's attempts to make sense of Nolten's complex inner motivations in his loves and art and the ludicrously pompous pathos with which Nolten persists in speaking and thinking, as he concocts a heroic persona caught up in passion, intrigue, and tragedy. Fascinating too is the mysterious trail of the "Grenzganger," or border-line characters, with their hints at the dimension of "Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves" that seems to threaten and at the same time to foster the complex unfolding of the realities of life and art that defy Nolten's all-too-artful "mastery". Raleigh Whitinger is professor in the Department of Germanic Languages at the University of Alberta.
