The divine comedy by Dante Alighieri( Book )

22 editions published between 1932 and 1959 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In middle age Dante realizes he has strayed from the True Way into the Dark Wood of Error, or Wordliness. When he realizes his loss, he looks up to see the first light of the sun, the symbol of divine illumination, lighting the top of a small hill, the Mount of Joy. It is Easter, the time of resurrection and rebirth. These symbols fill Dante with hope and he sets out immediately to climb to the top of Mount Joy. His way is blocked, however, by the Three Beasts of Worldliness--the Leopard of Malice and Fraud, the Lion of violence and ambition, and the She-Wolf of Incntinence--who will drive him back into the darkness of error. When all seems lost, Virgil, Dante's symbol of human reason, to lead him from error. With the easy way to the Mount of Joy blacked, Dante must travel the more difficult way through Hell and Purgatory before reaching the light of God. To help him, Virgil offers Dante another Guide--Beatrice, the symbol of divine love
The little flowers of Saint Francis of Assisi, in the first English translation by Francis( Book )

48 editions published between 1894 and 1963 in English and held by 667 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

En el otoño de 1830, el inglés Richard Ford llegó a España con su familia en busca de un clima más favorable para su mujer. Asentado en Sevilla, a partir de 1831 emprenderá una serie de viajes por todo el país, interesándose por sus costumbres, su cultura y paladeando la ruda gastronomía que imperaba en el siglo xix. Pocos viajeros extranjeros han descrito la realidad española con tanta precisión, agudeza y conocimiento. Sus libros Manual para viajeros por España y lectores en casa (1841) y Cosas de España (1846), en donde se detiene en las comidas y vinos de su país de acogida, son auténticas delicias para los paladares más exigentes de la literatura gastronómica

"First printed in 1476, this collection of stories, or "little flowers," chronicles Saint Francis of Assisi's journeys, activities, and miracles. Told in brief anecdotes of charming simplicity, the stories include Saint Francis' sermon to the birds, his taming of the savage wolf of Gubbio, his conversion of the Sultan of Babylon, and his miraculous healing of a leper. Picturesque and poetic, The Little Flowers of Saint Francis transports readers to the Middle Ages for an inspiring portrait of the saint and his earliest disciples. One of the world's most popular and widely read religious classics, its universal appeal extends to people of all faiths and every intellectual level." - Back cover
