Septimania

Septimania

Author: Jonathan Levi Format: Hardback Release Date: 11/08/2016

On an idyllic spring afternoon in 1978 in the loft of a church outside Cambridge, England, an organ tuner named Malory loses his virginity to a dyslexic math genius named Louiza. When Louiza disappears, Malory follows her trail to Rome. There, the quest to find his love gets sidetracked when he discovers he is the heir to the Kingdom of Septimania, given by Charlemagne to the Jews of 8th-century France. In the midst of a Rome reeling from the kidnappings and bombs of the Red Brigades, Malory is crowned King of the Jews, Holy Roman Emperor and possibly Caliph of All Islam. Over the next fifty years, Malory's search for Louiza leads to encounters with Aldo Moro, Pope John Paul II, a band of lost Romanians, a magical Bernini statue, Haroun al Rashid of Arabian Nights fame, an elephant that changes colour, a shadowy U.S. spy agency and one of the 9/11 bombers, an appleseed from the original Tree of Knowledge, and the secret history of Isaac Newton and his discovery of a Grand Unified Theory that explains everything. But most of all, Septimania is the quest of a Candide for love and knowledge, and the ultimate discovery that they may be unified after all.

Treen for the Table

Author: Jonathan Levi, Robert Young Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/01/1999

Concentrating on pieces of treen related to eating and drinking, this book celebrates the range and richness of the turner's art from 1600 to 1900. It covers a wide range of objects for everyday use - goblets to nutcrackers, platters to lemon squeezers, and wassail bowls to egg cups. The book discusses the work of the jobbing village turner or bodger , the skilled craftsman's workshop and the grand Court turner producing complex rose engine turning. It illustrates pieces only to be found in museums and examples you can find today in local antiques markets or fairs. Information is given on where treen may be seen and found and there is practical advice on pitfalls for the collector, dating and cleaning, as well as a chapter dealing with surfaces and patina and one asking for reader's help in identifying the purpose of some curious objects.
