Werner, Frank R.
Hans Dieter Schaal is already something of a cultural institution in Germany. Trained as an architect, he always operates outside the "mainstream", designing and realizing stage sets, sculptures, cemeteries, parks, squares, spatial installations or book projects, which are often trend setters in their own field. In the last 10 years, Schaal has established a focal point that seems to be the sum of all his themes: exhibition architecture. He has provided expansive installations for the broadest possible range of exhibition subjects in such high-volume buildings as the Martin-Gropius-Bau or the Zeughaus in Berlin, the Haus der Geschichte in Bonn, the Kunstvereinsgebaude in Stuttgart, the Deutsches Postmuseum in Frankfurt am Main or the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome. His work was never mere "exhibition design" in these cases. Instead of this he was always concerned to tell spatial stories about the exhibits or their historical background. Of course he was able to draw on his experience in stage-set design here. Admittedly Schaal would not be Schaal, if he were not to use the whole stock of ideas from his decades of "lateral thinking" or his insatiable search for archetypes and images. On occasions this has meant that Schaal's exhibitions were admired simply because of their spatial sensations. It was only the very few people who were prepared to analyse the extraordinarily extensive and complex work more profoundly who found a carefully established subliminal relationship network of selected motifs running through all his exhibition installations like a central theme. Sometimes they come from his own early work, sometimes from literary or cinematic finds, then again from psychological-philosophical footnotes or even private obsessions. Such image particles constitute a thought-edifice - perhaps comparable only with Aby Warburg's legendary picture archive - which breaks right through the bounds of traditional exhibition architecture. 159pp.

Edited By Davis, Theodore M.
Before the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the greatest find ever made in the Valley of the Kings was the 3000-year-old tomb of Yuya (Iouiya) and Tjuyu (Touiyou), parents-in-law of king Amenophis III of the 18th Dynasty. The tomb contained their wonderfully preserved mummies, lying within magnificent coffins and surrounded by a gorgeous array of palace furniture and funerary equipment. "The Tomb of Iouiya and Touiyou" and of "The Funeral Papyrus of Iouiya", the excavator's official reports on this important find, edited by Theodore M. Davis and with contributions from Gaston Maspero, Percy E. Newberry, and Edouard Naville, were first published in a limited edition in 1907 and 1908 and are reprinted here in one volume. The non-photographic illustrations are by Howard Carter. 20pp.

Bellamy, Nicholas
Despite more than 50 years' experience with outcome measurement in musculoskeletal clinical trials, there is little conformity in the methods used, and no standard text on clinical metrology exists. This text reviews the methods used to assess the clinical efficacy of antirheumatic drugs in adult patients with musculoskeletal disease, focusing primarily on clinical rather than laboratory or radiographic measures. There are four parts: overviews of fundamental issues in clinical metrology; of outcome measures relevant to antirheumatic drugs: a review of current clinimetric practices in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and fibromyalgia clinical trials; and a discussion of different measurement techniques. The text is complemented by many illustrations and three appendices. This study should be of interest to all involved in evaluating treatment strategies for musculoskeletal patients, as well as those involved in the development and regulation of antirheumatic drugs. 367pp.N.B.Small fade mark at base of spine.
