The towers of Trebizond by Rose Macaulay( Book )

89 editions published between 1956 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Take my camel, dear, ' said my aunt Dot, as she climbed down from this animal on her return from High Mass." So begins The Towers of Trebizond, the greatest novel by Rose Macaulay, one of the eccentric geniuses of English literature. In this fine and funny adventure set in the backlands of modern Turkey, a group of highly unusual travel companions makes its way from Istanbul to legendary Trebizond, encountering potion-dealing sorcerers, recalcitrant policemen, and Billy Graham on tour with a busload of Southern evangelists. But though the dominant note of the novel is humorous, its pages are shadowed by heartbreak - as the narrator confronts the specters of ancient empires, religious turmoil, and painful memories of lost love."--Publisher's description

Orphan Island by Rose Macaulay( Book )

54 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1855 a philanthropic young person, Miss Charlotte Smith, was escorting forty orphans to San Francisco when the ship was wrecked, and the survivors-Miss Smith, the orphans, a doctor, and some others, landed on a desert island. Those sailors who had escaped deserted them the next day in the boats. There they remained unvisited for some seventy years, with little to disturb the monotony beyond the adventures of the Doctor, who was secured in turn by Miss Smith and a shark. All this is contained in chapter one. The second chapter opens in 1922 at Cambridge, where lived the descendants of one of the sailors who deserted-a professor and his three children. A document and chart coming into the professor's hands, left by his dead grandfather, telling the story of the marooning of Miss Smith and the orphans, the professor and his family voyage out to the island and find there a thriving community, and Orphan Island is chiefly concerned with the community and the relations of it to the professor and his family."--Amazon

This book contains Dame Rose Macaulay's 1921 novel, "Dangerous Ages". A young writer with a sizeable family returns to college as a way to spend her free time, but finds that she is perhaps not as sharp as she once was. Sick of her chaotic family, she decides to settle down, but realizes that her boyfriend was no longer willing to wait and has fallen for someone else... and her own niece, no less. Struggling with all the commitments that come with a large family, she endeavors to put her life back together again. Many vintage books such as this were becoming increasingly scarce or expensive. This volume is now republished in an available, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction
Fabled shore : from the Pyrenees to Portugal by Rose Macaulay( Book )

36 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The long Mediterranean coast-line of Spain from the Pyrenees to the Pillars of Hercules, with the Atlantic shore beyond that sweeps round Cadiz Bay to the southern edge of Portugal, is the changing scene of Rose Macaulay's journey, here described, as she drove her car along the fabled shore. Phoenician and Greek settlements, Carthaginian cities, Roman walls, arches, towers aqueducts and theatres, richly ex-quisite Arab courts and doorways, white Moorish towns, Romanesque churches and monasteries, sumptuous baroque facades, line the coast and its hinterland, a lovely palimpsest of the Mediterranean history of three thousand years. With this book Dame Rose Macaulay made her own witty, erudite, observant and poetic addition to the literature of Spain. The Spanish coastline has changed in many aspects, and not for the better, since Fabled Shore first appeared in 1949, but with her strongly developed sense of the past her learning and her humour, Rose Macaulay remains, through this bool one of the best of all companions for the visitor to Spain
