Mark Sisco | February 14th, 2016 Thomaston Place Auction Galleries, Thomaston, Maine From the pre-Christian era to the Renaissance and from medieval times to the late 20th century, just about all major eras were covered in Thomaston Place’s wide-ranging winter auction on February 13 and 14 in Thomaston, Maine. The top-selling lot was a 50¾" tall Neoclassical Carrara marble sculpture by Chauncey Bradley Ives (1810-1894) titled Undine Rising from the Water, signed on the integral base “C.B. IVES. FECIT. / ROMA.” According to medieval legend, an undine is a nymph-like but soulless water being who can acquire a soul only by marrying a human, preferably a knight. But if the husband proves unfaithful, the laws of the water spirits dictate that...

Body: 
NINE hundred and thirty years ago something quietly momentous occurred in Swindon, something that would echo through the centuries although it probably didn’t seem such a big deal back then. The name of our town was written down and recorded for what was almost certainly the first time. It is interesting to imagine the conversation between William the Conqueror’s scribes as they traipsed regally around the kingdom compiling The Great Survey of 1086, and the good folk of this modest AngloSaxon settlement that is perched on a limestone mound. “So, what exactly do you call this place then… this hill?” Err, we call it after them porkers snorting over yonder. So, it is swinedown then – pig hill – Suindune. At least, that’s the popular consens...

In 15th-century Europe, the Apocalypse weighed heavily on the minds of the people. Plagues were rampant. The once-great capital of the Roman empire, Constantinople, had fallen to the Turks. Surely, the end was nigh. Dozens of printed works described the coming reckoning in gory detail, but one long-forgotten manuscript depicts the Apocalypse in a very different way—through maps. “It has this sequence of maps that illustrate each stage of what will happen,” says Chet Van Duzer, a historian of cartography who has written a book about the previously unstudied manuscript. The geography is sketchy by modern standards, but the maps make one thing perfectly clear: If you’re a sinner, you’ve got nowhere to hide. The Antichrist is coming, and his...
