Goodwin Wharton is the story of a quest - the attempt of a seventeenth-century aristocrat to transmute arcane knowledge into wealth, power, and salvation. Its protagonist, Goodwin Wharton (1653-1704), attempting to recoup his losses in engineering, deep-sea diving, and alchemy, formed an allianced with Mary Tomson Boucher Lawrence Parish - spiritualist, physician, biologist, and uniquely gifted confidence woman. Together, with occasional help from three MPs, they sought for spirit-guarded treasures, entrance to the lowland kingdom of the fairies, success in alchemy, and angelic guidance for diving expeditions. Meanwhile, Mary became Goodwin's mistress, and Goodwin acquired great spiritual gifts - visions, audible revelations, ordinations, an infallible inner voice - and the love of three queens of England. -- Book Jacket

Whig's progress : Tom Wharton between revolutions by J. Kent Clark( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A biography of Wharton ("Tom," to his family, his friends, and by 1680, to political England) involves an account of the tortuous Popish Plot, the Exclusion Crisis, the formation of the Whig and Tory parties, and the intricacies of the Glorious Revolution. Without oversimplifying a very complex set of events, the author has made his treatment both accurate and readily comprehensible to twenty-first-century readers." "Clark has searched through original documents and used primary sources as much as possible. He has also corrected many errors in secondary sources, producing a readable yet authoritative history of a major political figure in the Restoration era."--Jacket

Papers by J. Kent Clark( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

J. Kent Clark's papers were given to the Archives over a period of time. The first items to be received were the musicals, which in most cases were represented by text, musical scores, and frequently by audio cassettes as well. Of the remaining papers, the bulk was given in 1990. In preparing the materials for use, it was decided to bring all of them together in one place, in the collection now called the Papers of J. Kent Clark. The exception is the audio cassettes, which reside mostly--there are some exceptions--in the Archives' audio collection. Cross references to these audio cassettes are given in the Guide to the Papers. However, researchers should consult the separate guide to the audio cassette collection for some items which are not referenced in the papers. Three phonorecords of Clark's songs and musicals are also separately catalogued
