M canique questre et quitation
Cet ouvrage est une nouvelle édition revue et augmentée de Mécanique équestre et équitation publié pour la première fois en 1995. Le docteur Pradier, tant par sa lecture des grands maîtres que grâce à une longue pratique des chevaux, sur un plan vétérinaire et dans le domaine des sports équestres, a fini par se forger quelques certitudes. II les développe ici en les argumentant précisément. Il est convaincu que seules les allures naturelles du cheval lui permettent d'exprimer tout son capital sportif, quelle que soit la discipline pratiquée. Le docteur Pradier célèbre ici l'extraordinaire science accumulée par les Grands Anciens jusqu'au XVIIIe siècle concernant la " nature " du cheval et le respect obligatoire de cette " nature " physique et psychique. Le dressage n'est - et ne peut être - que la recherche menant à " la restitution ou à l'amélioration des allures naturelles " chères à La Guérinière. Ce livre est à la fois une mine d'enseignements pour tous les cavaliers en quête d'harmonie avec leur cheval et un guide de dressage au jour le jour, depuis le débourrage jusqu'au rassembler ultime. II s'agit d'une relecture de l'équitation classique à la lueur des connaissances modernes en éthologie, en biomécanique et en physiologie.

Forget Doris Day singing on the stagecoach. Forget Robin Weigert’s gritty portrayal on HBO’s Deadwood. The real Calamity Jane was someone the likes of whom you’ve never encountered. That is, until now. This book is a definitive biography of Martha Canary, the woman popularly known as Calamity Jane. Written by one of today’s foremost authorities on this notorious character, it is a meticulously researched account of how an alcoholic prostitute was transformed into a Wild West heroine. Always on the move across the northern plains, Martha was more camp follower than the scout of legend. A mother of two, she often found employment as waitress, laundress, or dance hall girl and was more likely to be wearing a dress than buckskin. But she was hard to ignore when she’d had a few drinks, and she exploited the aura of fame that dime novels created around her, even selling her autobiography and photos to tourists. Gun toting, swearing, hard drinking—Calamity Jane was all of these, to be sure. But whatever her flaws or foibles, James D. McLaird paints a compelling portrait of an unconventional woman who more than once turned the tables on those who sought to condemn or patronize her. He also includes dozens of photos—many never before seen—depicting Jane in her many guises. His book is a long-awaited biography of Martha Canary and the last word on Calamity Jane.
This volume originates from an international conference held at Oxford University in 2007. Texts by classical archaeologists, art historians, students of the history of collecting, curators, conservators and artists address objects and themes from antiquity to the present day, ancient Egypt to 20th-century Mexico and contemporary Europe. They explore status, reception and functions of casts as well as hands-on issues, such as the making, trading, display and conservation of plaster casts. A handbook for students, academics, curators and collectors, the text will become a standard work on the role of plaster casts in the history of Western sculpture.
