The private journal of Captain G.F. Lyon of H.M.S. Hecla : during the recent voyage of discovery under Captain Parry, 1821-1823 by G. F Lyon( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a vivid account of Arctic exploration in its most classical period. The journal clearly demonstrates the observant, warm-hearted personality of its chronicler, an officer of the Royal Navy, a man of sensibility and courage. Its accurate descriptions and thoughtful understanding of the Eskimo people make it almost unique as an early nineteenth-century document. George Francis Lyon appeared in the Arctic in the 1820's at the very height of the feverish quest for the Northwest Passage to the Orient. For over two centuries before Lyon's first journey in the Arctic on board the Hecla, more than two score of European ships with their daring crews had set out to discover a northern trade route to China. All had been lost or driven back by the power of the moving ice. The expedition of the Fury and Hecla from 1821-1823 was yet another venture that failed to navigate the narrow ice-choked passage to the western sea, but the observations of both Perry and Lyon, the leaders of the expedition, made considerable additions to the geographical and scientific knowledge of the eastern and central Arctic. -- from Introduction

Of mice and men by John Steinbeck( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They are an unlikely pair: George is "small and quick and dark of face"; Lennie, a man of tremendous size, has the mind of a young child. Yet they have formed a "family," clinging together in the face of loneliness and alienation. Laborers in California's dusty vegetable fields, they hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations of a flirtatious woman, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him"--
The Oresteia by Aeschylus( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Oresteia by Aeschylus, the only extant trilogy among the Greek tragedies, is one of the great foundational texts of Western culture. Beginning with Agamemnon, which describes Agamemnon's return from the Trojan War and his murder at the hands of his wife, Clytemnestra, and continuing through Orestes' murder of Clytemnestra in Libation Bearers and his acquittal at Athena's court in Eumenides, the trilogy traces the evolution of justice in human society from blood vengeance to the rule of law. The story of the house of Atreus is a tale of incest, adultery, human sacrifice, cannibalism, and political intrigue. It is also a story in which human action is simultaneously willed and determined

The invisible man by H. G Wells( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Invisible Man is a science fiction cllassic. To its author, H.G. Wells, the novel was as compelling as "a good gripping dream." But to generations of readers, the terrible and evil experiment of the demented scientist, Griffin, has conveyed a chilling nightmare of believable horror. An atmosphere of ever increasing suspense begins with the arrival of a mysterious stranger at an English village inn and builds relentlessly to the stark terror of a victim pursued by a maniacal invisible man
Lysis or, Friendship. The symposium. Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is logical to group together the three dialogues of the present volume -- the Lysis, the Symposium, and the Phaedrus. In the first place, these three works contain in essence virtually all that Plato had to say on the subject of love and friendship. Secondly, the Lysis and certain parts of the other two works will show the Platonic dialectic in action. Further, the Symposium and Phaedrus are so replete with meaning that repeated readings are necessary in order to approach anything like a full grasp of their contents. In particular, they indicate what Plato conceived the nature of the human soul to be. We find him arguing that it is an entity which is immortal and at the same time has deep involvements in the world of space and time. - Preface
