The life of George Washington : commander in chief of the American army through the Revolutionary War and the first president of the United States by Aaron Bancroft( Book )

5 editions published between 1826 and 1839 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Washington (1732-1799) was the first president of the United States, having led the Continental army to victory against the British during the American War of Independence. He became known as 'Father of the Country' owing to his key role in the formation of the nation, and is commemorated in its currency, postage stamps and the capital city's name. This biography, first published in 1807 and reissued here in the 1858 Boston edition, is a simply written narrative to inform the 'unlettered portion of the community', and is based on eye-witness accounts and personal recollections from those close to Washington. The author, a Congregationalist pastor from Worcester, Massachusetts, focuses on Washington's army career and his military campaigns, describing strategy, logistics and combat. The final chapters cover Washington's terms as President, and the book ends with an evaluation of his achievements

The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia by Samuel Johnson( Book )

3 editions published between 1826 and 1831 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume recounts the escape of Rasselas and his companions from the 'soft vicissitudes of pleasure and repose' in the happy valley to Egypt, there to study the conditions of men's lives and to seek the active principle of happiness. The real point however, is the manner of the telling--the humor, the solidity of the wisdom, and the verbal force and skill with which that wisdom is pressed home. It is an attack on eighteenth-century optimism and romanticism. However it is an attack without malignancy, without self-righteousness, born rather of a tragic sense of life

Conversations on natural philosophy : in which the elements of that science are familiarly explained and adapted to the comprehension of young pupils by Marcet( Book )

2 editions published in 1826 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An author of educational works intended especially for young women, Jane Haldimand Marcet (1769-1858) sought to combat the notion that technical topics were unsuitable for female students. Inspired by conversations with the famous scientists she entertained, she wrote textbooks in the lively form of discussions between a teacher and her two female pupils. Published anonymously at first, they found broad popularity: Michael Faraday, as a young bookbinder's apprentice, credited Marcet with introducing him to electrochemistry. The present work, an introduction to physics, astronomy and the properties of matter, sound and light, was Marcet's first, though it remained unpublished until 1819. Her other works include Conversations on Chemistry (1805), Conversations on Political Economy (1816) and Conversations on Vegetable Physiology (1829), all of which are reissued in this series. Never professing to be original, Marcet's work is noted nonetheless for its thoroughness and clear presentation of concepts
