In , three years after war with Mexico had halved that country and expanded U. Willard made several such maps, illustrating an idea popular among 18th and 19th century historians, and illustrated in many similar ways by other artists: casting history as a succession of great empires, one taking over for another.
Other visual metaphors told this story, too. The U. She helped solidify, for both her peers and her students, a narrative of American destiny and inevitability, writes University of Denver historian Susan Schulten. Willard was a pioneer in many respects, including, perhaps, in her adaptation of European neoclassical ideas about history and time in the justification of a new American empire.

Folks with a passing knowledge of ukiyo-e , the Japanese woodblock print art form popular in the 17th through 19th centuries, will be familiar with its landscapes, as well as its portraits of courtesans and kabuki actors. But often these prints were educational, demonstrated by these very odd anatomical prints that promote good health as it relates to our internal workings.

Long before animated monsters warned us about our mucus-filled chests, Japanese artists like Utagawa Kunisada filled the guts of these men and women with little workers, making sure the human body worked like a functioning village or town. Inside, little men scurry about a pool wrapped in intestines, stoke a fire under the heart, all the while a scholar keeps reference materials nearby.
The two prints were meant as instructional, pointing out best health practices, and warning against overindulgence and excess. Other prints are just as inventive: a back and abdomen covered in children playing familiar games; another featuring popular kabuki actors standing in for various organs.

So why haven't we all become world-class masters of eating, sleeping, reading, and teeth-brushing?
Most of us, if we're honest with ourselves, plateaued on those particular skills decades ago, despite never having missed our daily practice sessions. This should tell us something important about the difference between practicing an action and simply doing it a lot, a distinction at the heart of the concept of "deliberate practice. Psychologist Anders Ericsson, the single figure most closely associated with deliberate practice, draws a distinction with what he calls naive practice: "Naive practice is people who just play games," and in so doing "just accumulate more experience.
And once you have that specific goal of changing it, you will now engage in a practice activity that has a purpose of changing that. As a post on deliberate practice at Farnam Street puts it, "great performers deconstruct elements of what they do into chunks they can practice. They get better at that aspect and move on to the next," often under the guidance of a teacher who can more clearly see their strengths and weaknesses in action.
The only way to make progress is to operate in the learning zone, which are those activities that are just out of reach. But striking that balance presents challenges of its own, challenges that have ensured a readership for writings on the subject of how best to engage in deliberate practice by Ericsson as well as many others such as writer-entrepreneur James Clear, whose beginner's guide to deliberate practice you can read online here. The video above on Ericsson's book Peak: How to Master Almost Anything explains his view of the goal of deliberate practice as to develop the kind of library of "mental representations" that masters of every discipline — golfers, doctors, guitarists, comedians, novelists — use to approach every situation that might arise.
Developing those mental representations requires specific goals, intense periods of practice, immediate feedback during that practice, and above all, frequent discomfort. Everyone enjoys mastery once they attain it, but if you find yourself having too much fun on the way, consider the possibility that you're not practicing deliberately enough.

She went on to publish several books of poetry and nonfiction and win multiple prestigious awards while also performing poetry across the country and playing saxophone with her band Poetic Justice. One of the first firms to move to the suburbs, they decided to purchase a parcel of land along the railway in Garden City to house their subsidiary Country Life Press, and a new station was built especially to serve them in This helped them to develop distribution channels that revolutionised the publishing industry — families that had previously only had access to newspapers and magazines suddenly started bringing books into their homes.

Now-grown children whose families collected the books for them recall using stickers with the names of the books on them to make the orders when they sent them in. Bad news first — whilst this series is beloved by many and collections look adorable on the shelf, most book club editions are typically valued quite poorly by collectors, and JDE books are no exception to this mind you, this is of course excellent news for collectors, as you can easily build up a lovely looking collection of nostalgia without breaking the bank.
The good news for sellers is that books with dust jackets are much more uncommon and can certainly command higher prices if they are in good condition. However, by far the most valuable books in the series are those earliest releases, which are really quite rare presumably because the subscriber base started out much smaller , and collectors may well be willing to part with a decent amount of cash to be able to complete their collection for these scarce volumes.
People who collect variant copies are also likely to be interested in and willing to pay more for the early editions of any books which were later reprinted, since they have different cover designs, and sometimes even different illustrators.
