Comforts of a Rumford stove [graphic] / Js. Gillray des. & fect. ad vivum.

Author: Gillray, James, 1756-1815,
Description: "Count Rumford stands in profile to the right, smiling; he pulls aside his coat-tails to warm his back at the fire. The fire-place has a small rectangular aperture, set low, the grate triangular in shape and resembling a modern fire-place. His shadow falls vertically across the fire (which emits much black smoke) and resembles a cloud of smoke. On the small high chimney-piece are a coffee-pot with a wide base and long handle, and a round cooking-pot. He grins with satisfaction, his profile is drink-blotched, and he wears (inconspicuously) a parti-coloured ribbon. His boots are of the fashionable Hessian pattern. A carpet and bare panelled walls complete the design."--British Museum online catalogue.

Walking a sacred path : rediscovering the labyrinth as a spiritual tool / Lauren Artress.

Labyrinths Religious aspects.
Author: Artress, Lauren, 1945-
Description: Reintroduces the ancient Labyrinth, a walking meditation that transcends the limits of still meditation. This walking meditation is a mystical ritual found in many religious traditions. It quiets the mind and opens the soul, evoking a feeling of wholeness. Psychotherapist Lauren Artress has re-created the Labyrinth on canvas, modeling it after the sacred design laid in the floor of Chartres cathedral in the twelfth century. Over the past several years she has introduced the Labyrinth to thousands of men and women, and observed their experiences with its power. They have emerged from their walks with a tremendous sense of peace and possibility. Artress's book explores the historical origins of this divine imprint and shares the discoveries of modern-day seekers.--From publisher description.
