Barbot on Guinea : the writings of Jean Barbot on West Africa, 1678-1712 by Jean Barbot( )

36 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Barbot, who served as a commercial agent on French slave-trading voyages to West Africa in 1678-9 and 1681-2, in 1683 began an account of the Guinea coast, based partly on his voyage journals (only one of which is extant) and partly on previous printed sources. The work was interrupted by his flight to England, as a Huguenot refugee, in 1685, and not finished until 1688. (Dust jacket)
Compassing the vaste globe of the earth : studies in the history of the Hakluyt Society, 1846-1996 : with a complete list of the Society's publications by R. C Bridges( )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since 1846 the Hakluyt Society has published over 200 scholarly editions of 'Voyages and Travels', these being the primary sources on the initial stages of intercontinental 'cultural encounter', as well as documents of exploratory enterprise. The present volume of essays celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Society. A general essay by one of the editors, Paul Hair, examines the set of editions for evidence of their geographical and chronological range, their scholarly editing, their ideological presuppositions, and the light that they throw on developments over the period in the nature and management of the Society."--BOOK JACKET. "Next, a series of biographical essays relates distinguished figures in the history of the Society to their immediate context within British society and British overseas activities."--BOOK JACKET. "The essays are followed by a detailed list of Hakluyt Society publications 1847-1995, and an index to the title-pages."--BOOK JACKET

The Westward enterprise : English activities in Ireland, the Atlantic, and America, 1480-1650( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, an international group of scholars from Britain, Ireland, and North America take up many of the questions surrounding the history of European expansion. What were the motives of the English, how did these change, and what insight is given on developments in English society? How did the ventures of the English compare with those of other European nations? What were the shifts in fundamental knowledge of the world, and the new concepts of civilization spread by the invention of printing, which lay behind the movements of ships, armies, and settlers? What were the roles and reactions of those who felt the weight of English expansionism, the natives of Ireland and America? Over a period of forty years, D.B. Quinn, formerly Andrew Geddes and John Rankin Professor of Modern History at the University of Liverpool, has pioneered research into these far-reaching questions in a range of books, articles, and lectures, which together have made a special contribution to the study of European expansion and the rise of the modern world. This volume is published in tribute to Professor Quinn. It provides in one source a survey of the historical research and advances in knowledge concerning the English westward enterprise, and the earliest history of America, which have been made during the last half-century"--Jacket, p.

Reflections on the battlefield : from infantryman to chaplain, 1914-1919 by R. J Rider( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In August 1914, Robert J. Rider, aged twenty-five, was about to begin his third year of training for the ministry of the Wesleyan Methodist church, at Handsworth Theological College in Birmingham. Two months later he had enlisted with the First Birmingham Battalion, later termed the 14th Battalion, of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. His superiors became aware of his clerical background, and in 1916 he was commissioned to serve as an army chaplain, and ministered to an artillery unit on the Western Front until his eventual demobilisation in 1919." "Reflections on the Battlefield is Rider's account of his experiences, and is derived from a typescript left to his descendants after he died in 1961. Broadly autobiographical, the text is unusual in that the author had experience of life both as a fighting soldier and subsequently as a non-combatant Christian minister, and was thus particularly exposed to the ambiguities of chaplaincy service on the battlefield. Written as a series of episodes presented in the third person, Rider's account is not so much a history as an attempt to convey the decency and humanity of the men he served with and ministered to, despite the brutalities, degradation and suffering of war. Reflections on the Battlefield thus provides us with a personal and valuable contribution to the debate about how the ethics of war were viewed from the World War I battlefield."--Jacket

#X91;No Arts; No Letters; No Society; and which is worst of all ... the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.#x92; Thomas Hobbes (1588#x96;1679). The University of Liverpool pioneered the system, now general among British universities, whereby departments of related disciplines are grouped into #x91;Faculties#x92; with administrative and academic responsibilities and powers. The first Faculty at Liverpool with these commitments was the Arts Faculty, whose initial meeting was held in December 1896. Commemoration of the centenary of the Arts Faculty was marked by the publication of this volume. The book contains reminiscences by former students relating to each decade of the century, and also the reminiscences of a number of former Deans. Essays #x91;informative and critical#x92; have been contributed by recent and present members of staff. They include an account of the buildings occupied by #x96; and in some instances designed for #x96; the Faculty of Arts; a 1950s dialogue by the late Kenneth Muir, the distinguished Shakespeare scholar; and a study of J.M. Mackay, the Highlander who in the 1890s was the prime advocate of a Faculty system. The volume concludes with an essay by Professor Stephen R.L. Clark analysing the position of Arts today and pointing to the future
