The little flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi, in the first English translation by Francis( Book )

3 editions published in 1930 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fioretti ... [are] fixed upon Saint Francis and his earliest disciples in the way in which legend accumulates about any celebrated character in history. But, in this case, and in contrast with the situation that usually prevails in folk-lore, the 'stories' have a certain authority as history. Seventy years of Franciscan scholarship, to which L. Manzoni, Paul Sabatier and Giunio Garavani have made fundamental contributions, enable us even to evaluate the authenticity of the Little Flowers."--Introduction
Virgil's Georgics by Virgil( Book )

2 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Points (an intersection in lower Manhattan formed when Anthony Street was extended to meet Orange and Cross-today's Baxter and North Streets), was the most infamous neighborhood in nineteenth-century America. Visitors from Charles Dickens to Abraham Lincoln flocked to Five Points to witness the filthy streets, bordellos, gambling dens, and tenements that housed the lowest of the low. A close look at Five Points reveals a hidden world. As one of the most ethnically varied areas in the nation's most diverse city, The Five Points story is a classic American example of immigrant energy and ambition. From "Bowery Boy" culture to the invention of tap dance, to the most famous prize-fight of the century, to the timeless photographs of Jacob Riis, Five Points illuminates the colorful history of a fascinating community

The Battle for Gaul by Julius Caesar( Book )

1 edition published in 1954 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures in the history of man have had more to do with the shaping of our present civilization than Julius Caesar. A towering political leader, a military genius, and a skilled writer, he deserves a fate better than that of being a subject of an unwilling schoolboy's Latin lesson. Those readers who have long forgotten their Latin will find in this book new and sound perspectives on this important man, for there are few books that provide a better, more interesting picture of mankind at a historical crossroad.

Hieroglyphic tales : (1785) by Horace Walpole( Book )

1 edition published in 1926 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Funny, absurd, satirical, and disturbing--these stories are Horace Walpole's most original, yet least known writings These short tales can claim to be the first surrealist writings in English--and remain some of the strangest fiction in all literature. They were originally published in 1785 in an edition of six copies, all of which Walpole kept for himself. An extra story is included, which was preserved only in manuscript. Truly bizarre, Walpole's stories defy the fictional conventions of his day, beginning with an often-imitated mock preface explaining that the stories were undoubtedly written a little before the creation of the world, and have ever since been preserved, by oral tradition, in the mountains of Crampcraggiri, an uninhabited island, not yet discovered
