Professor Redlaw is haunted by a ghost-like creature that looks astonishingly like him. The spirit relieves Redlaw of his miseries from years gone by, but there are unforeseen consequences of forgetting the past1601ocn030420814book18590.28Darwin, CharlesOn the origin of speciesHistoryReintroduces the author's work about the theory of evolution with over three hundred fifty illustrations and photographs, accompanied by excerpts from his diaries, letters, and other writings1482ocn003174108book18480.29Thackeray, William MakepeaceVanity Fair a novel without a heroHistoryFictionDomestic fictionSatireVanity Fair is a story of two heroines---one humble, the other a scheming social climber---who meet in boarding school and embark on markedly different lives. Amid the swirl of London's posh ballrooms and affairs of love and war, their fortunes rise and fall. Through it all, Thackeray lampoons the shallow values of his society, reserving the most pointed barbs for the upper crust. What results is a prescient look at the dogged pursuit of wealth and status---and the need for humility1351ocn001405711book18500.66Wordsworth, WilliamThe prelude; or, Growth of a poet's mindPoetryWilliam Wordsworth's autobiographical masterpiece The Prelude, or, Growth of a Poet's Mind was written between 1798 and 1805. As Wordsworth himself appreciated, it was a thing unprecedented in literary history that a man should talk so much about himself. But his revolutionary work was not published ; it was merely prefatory to a projected magnum opus and just as he had revised whilst writing, so almost immediately he began to amend the thirteen-book Prelude. At the time of his death in April 1850 there were fourteen books, of which no fair, definitive copy existed: it fell to his executors to finalise the text which was published posthumously in July 1850 and which this edition accurately reproduces without editorial emendation. Twentieth-century editors of alternative versions have questioned the merits of many of Wordsworth's "improvements", but the 1850 text remains a literary landmark, the form in which arguably his greatest work was first known1121ocn003968433book18500.84Tennyson, Alfred TennysonIn memoriamCriticism, interpretation, etcPoetryIllustrations1101ocn004820553book18540.84Hooker, Joseph DaltonHimalayan journals : or, Notes of a naturalist in Bengal, the Sikkim and Nepal Himalayas, the Khasia Mountains, &c.1051ocn006806896book18530.81Hooper, William HulmeTen months among the tents of the Tuski : with incidents of an Arctic boat expedition in search of Sir John Franklin, as far as the Mackenzie River, and Cape BathurstAn account of the expedition of H.M.S.

On his return to England in 1853, Marryat married and brought his bride back to California that same year. Yellow fever contracted on shipboard forced him to cut the trip short and return to England where he died two years later. Mountains and molehills (1855) is a sportsman-tourist's chronicle of California in the early 1850s: hunting, horse races, bear and bull fights. It also includes an Englishman's bemused comments on social life in San Francisco, Stockton, and the gold fields941ocn003332032book18640.81Burton, Richard FrancisA mission to Gelele, king of Dahome : with notices of the so called "Amazons," the grand customs, the yearly customs, the human sacrifices, the present state of the slave trade, and the Negro's place in nature.History742ocn000173422book18530.88Keppel, HenryA visit to the Indian archipelago, in H.M. ship Mæander : with portions of the private journal of Sir James Brooke, K.C.B.HistoryDiaries731ocn022700734book18450.50Dickens, CharlesThe chimes : a goblin story of some bells that rang an old year out and a new year inJuvenile worksFictionChristmas storiesFairy talesA Christmas story731ocn003128336book18520.84Lear, EdwardJournals of a landscape painter in southern Calabria, &c.Records and correspondence681ocn035245756book18460.47Dickens, CharlesThe battle of life a love storyFictionChristmas storiesCurl up with this heartwarming tale of redemption from the master of the happy ending, Charles Dickens.
