About Fergus Hume, the Author: He continued to be anxious for success as a dramatist, and at one time Henry Irving was favourably considering one of his plays, but he died before it could be produced....The writer of the obituary notice in The Times stated that he was a very religious man who during his last years did much lecturing to young people's clubs and debating societies.


Endymion- A Poetic Romance - The Original Classic Edition

These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Endymion- A Poetic Romance: The two first books, and indeed the two last, I feel sensible are not of such completion as to warrant their passing the press; nor should they if I thought a years castigation would do them any good;-it will not: the foundations are too sandy. It is just that this youngster should die away: a sad thought for me, if I had not some hope that while it is dwindling I may be plotting, and fitting myself for verses fit to live.This may be speaking too presumptuously, and may deserve a punishment: but no feeling man will be forward to inflict it: he will leave me alone, with the conviction that there is not a fiercer hell than the failure in a great object. This is not written with the least atom of purpose to forestall criticisms of course, but from the desire I have to conciliate men who are competent to look, and who do look with a zealous eye, to the honour of English literature.The imagination of a boy is healthy, and the mature imagination of a man is healthy; but there is a space of life between, in which the soul is in a ferment, the character undecided, the way of life uncertain, the ambition thick-sighted: thence proceeds mawkishness, and all the thousand bitters which those men I speak of must necessarily taste in going over the following pages.

About Mary Cholmondeley, the Author: After her father retired as rector, she moved with him and her sister Diana in 1896 briefly to Condover Hall, which they had inherited from Reginald, and then sold it and moved to Albert Gate Mansions in Knightsbridge, London. ...^ Bentley paid 40 for The Danvers Jewels and 50 for Sir Charles Danvers, both in two volumes, but then increased an offer of 250 for the three-volume Diana Tempest to 400, the first of her books to appear under her own name.

Race, Romance, and Rebellion

Price: 65.00

As in many literatures of the New World grappling with issues of slavery and freedom,stories of racial insurrection frequently coincided with stories of cross-racial romance innineteenth-century U.S. print culture. Colleen OBrien explores how authors such asHarriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Livermore, and Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda imagined the expansionof race and gender-based rights as a hemispheric affair, drawing together the United States withAfrica, Cuba, and other parts of the Caribbean. Placing less familiar women writers in conversationwith their more famous contemporariesRalph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and Lydia MariaChildOBrien traces the transnational progress of freedom through the antebellumcultural fascination with cross-racial relationships and insurrections. Her book mines a varietyof sourcesfiction, political rhetoric, popular journalism, race science, and biblicaltreatisesto reveal a common concern: a future in which romance and rebellion engender radicalsocial and political transformation.


Flatland: a romance of many dimensions - The Original Classic Edition

Price: 7.95

Flatland is a unique and brilliant treatise on a trifurcated level. It is a sociological statement, a mathematical statement and a religious statement all rolled into an incredibly astute number of pages. The book centers mostly on the differences between a two dimensional world and a three dimensional world; but comments on society, law, prejudice, religion, and proselytizing.The book especially points out the difficulty in envisioning a greater reality and a greater vision than is commonly observed by any individual in any dimension or society. The authors premise relates to things existing in a plane geometry world as opposed to a Euclidian Geometric three dimensional figure universe. The book carefully illustrates to one denizen of Flatland how the three dimensional world of space works and/or exists. Upon finally understanding the Gospel of Three Dimensions our protagonist goes on to try and apply the same arithmetic logic and geometric analogs to a fourth dimensional universe. Shouldnt there exist a fourth dimensional universe that allows an entity to look down upon the three dimensional universe with as much transparency as one can from three dimensions to two?Alas, things become different in dimensions other than the first, a world of lines, the second, a world of shapes and the third, a world of objects. In the zero dimension, all things are a point. Mathematically we know that any number raised to the 0 power equals 1 and therefore, all things in the zero dimension resolve into one single omnipotent point. This condition would also exist in the fourth dimension; as those of us in the third dimension have no model to compare it to. Envisioning a fourth dimension, even with time as the fourth dimension is truly difficult or impossible for us in the third dimension.Interspersed with this witty and intellectual dialogue are comments on society and its structure. He specifically comments multiple times of the degradation of women in society to the lowest social status. Only men are educated in Flatland. Interestingly, he paints a picture of an authoritarian society in which people are judged by their shapes and angles. This reflecting the Victorian societal values around him at the time of his writing.Flatland is recommended to all those who seek to enlighten their view of the universe and of potential universes. It is especially recommended to those seeking higher knowledge of any type. Flatland is truly a multi-dimensional experience and worth every minute.

About Ant??nio de Trueba, the Author: To earn his daily bread he discharged the duties of a clerk in a small commercial house, but all the while he beguiled his leisure and his moments of regret by writing little poems and tales redolent of the yearnings and sympathies of a Basque transplanted to the busy cosmopolitan center....His popularity was fixed by the appearance of his first collection of lyrics, the Cantares (Madrid, 1852), and for the next eleven years he was absorbed by journalistic work, the best of his contributions being issued under the titles of Cuentos populares (1862), Cuentos de color de rosa (1864), and Cuentos campesinos (1865).

About William Le Queux, the Author: He was also a diplomat (honorary consul for San Marino), a traveller (in Europe, the Balkans and North Africa), a flying buff who officiated at the first British air meeting at Doncaster in 1909, and a wireless pioneer who broadcast music from his own station long before radio was generally available; his claims regarding his own abilities and exploits, however, were usually exaggerated. ...Le Queux mainly wrote in the genres of mystery, thriller, and espionage, particularly in the years leading up to World War I, when his partnership with British publishing magnate Lord Northcliffe led to the serialised publication and intensive publicising (including actors dressed as German soldiers walking along Regent Street) of pulp-fiction spy stories and invasion literature such as The Invasion of 1910, The Poisoned Bullet, and Spies of the Kaiser.
