Book Description Pennsylvania German Folklore Society (Printed By Schlechter's), Allentown, PA, 1966. Buckram. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Not Issued. First Thus. Full natural linen, red lettering, red colored initials, head- and tail-pieces throughout volume. xx, 386 pp., well illus. w/ color plates, many b&w illus. Slight lean, surfaces a bit rubbed, minor soiling to rear panel and rear joint. A masterful analysis of the symbolism, techniques, history, and lore of folk art among the Pennsylvania Germans. The son of the Rev. John Baer Stoudt (born near Maxatawny, Berks Co., later spent most of his career in the pulpit in Northampton and traveling throughout Berks, Lehigh, and Northampton Co.), John Joseph Stoudt taught at Millersville and Kutztown Universities and actively published on PA German history for a number of decades. This volume began life in his graduate education and was originally published as "Consider the Lilies, How They Grow," Vol. 2 of the publications of the PA German Folklore Society in 1937. It was considerably revised and expanded for republication in 1948 by Schlechter's under the present title, out of series from the other PGFS publications. Finally, in 1966, it was again published, and again with substantial revisions, as the final PGFS annual prior to that organization's demise and incorporation into the reorganized PA German Society (PGS). Publishing history aside, Stoudt tackles the whole of PA German arts, ranging especially from fraktur (fractur) and other forms of illuminated manuscripts (as Henry C. Mercer preferred to call them) to printed Taufscheine & broadsides to painted furniture, toleware, redware pottery, tall case clocks, homespun, samplers, cookie cutters, and any other material culture or domestic artifact that could augment his arguments. Chapters: Introduction; Sources of PA German Iconography; Symbolic Mood of PA Pietism; Symbol, Image & Literary Expression; Symbolism & Folk Art. Part two, composed entirely of captioned illustrations, presents Art of Ephrata (Cloister); Fractura, or Zierschrift Writing; Portraits; Decorated Household Objects; Ceramics; Textiles; Architectural Decoration; Tombstones. Topics include specific symbolism of tulips, unicorns, hearts, flowers, parrots & other birds, "hex" signs (barn stars), geometric folk motifs, etc.; early Christianity, Medieval German Mysticism; Walther von der Vogelweide; Mechthild von Magdeburg; Jacoponi de Todi; Heinrich Suso; German Minnesang, folk songs, & Evangelical hymns; Hans Sachs; Reformation hymnody; Jacob Boehme; Martin Opitz; Daniel Sudermann; Angelus Silesius; Paul Gerhardt's Sommerlied; Gottfried Arnold; William Penn; Dr. Johann Schutz; the Rhenish Palatinate in the 17th century; Eleanora von Merlau; Ueberfeld; Pastorius; Johann Jakob Zimmerman; Johann Kelpius & the Hermits of the Wissahickon (Das Weib in der Wueste); German Mennonites; the Psalterspiel; Beissel & the Ephrata Cloister; Ephrata hymnals; Berleberg Bible; Moravian hymnals; archetypal approaches to folk art; transcendental nature of folk art, etc. Stoudt's father corresponded with Henry C. Mercer during the early years of the Mercer Museum in Bucks County about PA German stoveplate legends and inscriptions, among other things; many of his letters to Mercer are in the files of the Spruance Library of the Bucks County Historical Society. Thus, it comes as no surprise that son John Joseph should have taken so active an interest in the local scene; what is more difficult to account for are his prodigious scholarship, his complete immersion in world mythological and folkloric traditions, and his rendering of so graceful a fabric as he has here produced, as valuable for its graceful style as for its conclusions. Reading like Jung or Joseph Campbell in places and quite like Irwin Panofsky's work on Medieval iconography in others, Stoudt's work has never been equaled in terms of its scope, its erudition, or its finesse. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 015190
