St William of York achieved the unique distinction of being elected archbishop of York twice and being canonised twice. Principally famous for his role in the York election dispute and the miracle of Ouse bridge, William emerges from this, the first full-length study devoted to him, as a significant figure in the life of the church in northern England and an interesting character in his own right. William's father, Herbert the Chamberlain, was a senior official in the royal treasury at Winchester who secured William's initial preferment at York; the importance of family connections, particularly after his cousin Stephen became king, forms a recurring theme. Dr Norton describes how he was early on involved in the primacy dispute with Canterbury, and after his father attempted to assassinate Henry I, he spent some years abroad with Archbishop Thurstan. William knew some of the earliest Yorkshire Cistercians, who were subsequently among his fiercest opponents during his first episcopate, which is here reconsidered in the light of new evidence: he emerges from the affair with much greater credit, St Bernard with correspondingly less. Retiring to Winchester after his deposition, he was elected archbishop a second time in 1153, but died the next year amid suspicions of murder. Miracles at his tomb in 1177 led to his veneration as a saint. The book concludes with the bull of canonisation issued by Pope Honorius III in 1226.

Everest revealed : the private diaries and sketches of Edward Norton, 1922-24 by E. F Norton( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"E.F. 'Teddy' Norton was a member of the 1922 Everest expedition and the leader of the 1924 expedition. Generally considered to be one of the finest climbers of his generation, in 1924 he reached a height of 28,126 feet without oxygen, a record that stood for 54 years. A few days later, Norton's fellow climbers Mallory and Irvine disappeared high on the mountain, a mystery that has fascinated subsequent generations and remains a topic of fierce debate today. The qualities of leadership which Norton showed that year in the face of appalling trials have led to him being regarded as one of the greatest of all Everest expedition leaders. His official account of the expedition has since become a classic. Norton's private diaries and sketches, published here for the first time, give a vivid impression of the joys and trials of the early Everest expeditions. They also record the landscapes, wildlife, flowers, and people encountered en route, and provide a glimpse of the lost world of pre-war Tibet in colour."--Jacket
