The romance of the fungus world : an account of fungus life in its numerous guises, both real and legendary by R. T Rolfe( Book )

15 editions published between 1925 and 1974 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mankind has always had a love-hate relationship with fungi. On the positive side, edible mushrooms and truffles are gastronomic delights, and certain fungi possess medicinal properties. On the other hand, many mushrooms are poisonous, and fungi can inflict costly damage on crops and other property. This captivating book explores both sides of the story, examining aspects usually overlooked in texts and field guides. The survey begins with fungi lore from mythology and legends, focusing particularly on the plants' association with devils, witches, and fairies. A balanced portrait of fungi in the real world considers not only the ruin caused by the plants but also their uses in medicine and industry and as foods. Ranging far and wide in its topics, the narrative offers a light touch and plenty of enthusiasm, making this book fun for everyone with even a casual interest in mushrooms. In addition, serious mushroom hunters will find this volume a practical reference and a fascinating resource for leisurely browsing

Nicholas Crabbe; or, The one and the Many, a romance by Frederick Rolfe( Book )

24 editions published between 1958 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel is a detailed account, thinly disguised as fiction, of the four years following Rolfe's arrival in London in the 1890s, when he embarked upon his chequered literary career. The novel gives Rolfe's admiration for adolescent beauty and is structured as romances of androgynous obsession. Crabbe's beloved in this novel is based on Rolfe's sometime poetic collaborator Sholto Douglas (1873-?). The sad conclusion of the novel suggests that Rolfe believed that such relationships could not succeed, at least among Englishmen

The original Rubaiyyat of Omar Khayaam : a new translation with critical commentaries / by Robert Graves and Omar Ali-Shah by Omar Khayyam( Book )

11 editions published between 1903 and 1926 in English and Spanish and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dave Wood, internationally renowned calligraphic artist, has just completed a stunning edition of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. This edition, which Dave has chosen to create, was translated by Edward FitzGerald in 1859 and has received worldwide recognition as a masterpiece in English literature and to this day, it remains one of the best loved poems of modern times. Omar Khayyam was born in 1048 in north eastern Persia and was a poet of great significance, being recognised as a man of science, specifically in the fields of astronomy and geometry. Dave has sensitively designed amazing works of art throughout this book which are richly illustrated and decorated in his distinctive style. During the 16th century, a theme of arrow-like designs was placed around the beautiful carpet pages of many Persican manuscripts. Dave has chosen to this graphic as part of a continuing theme on almost every page to suggest the link between the East and West - the Persican manuscripts and this 21st century interpretation. The use of these arrow-like designs also creates a continuous, subtle flow throughout this magnificent book"--hotfrog website
