Figuring History: American Philosophical Society Transactions Vol. 101 #4
Transactions Vol. 101 #4
In the past half-century the writing of history has been the object of much critical scrutiny by literary scholars, philosophers and historians. History painting has traditionally been an important topic in art history. The illustration of history books, in contrast, has not attracted much attention. The present study is a preliminary inquiry into the changing ways in which graphics, ranging from representational images to statistical charges, have been used to enhance or illuminate historical texts.
