Today, the term "chivalry" has come to refer to small acts of kindness typically performed by a man toward a woman, such as opening a car door or offering up one's coat on a chilly evening.

James provides a detailed account of the development and practice of chivalry

Even by today's standards, nineteenth-century British poet Lord Byron led a wild life. In between his passionate and public love affairs with both men and women, his alleged dalliance with his half-sister, his courageous battlefield exploits in the Greek War of Independence, and his untimely death from a fatal illness at the age of 36, he managed to produce some of the most memorable poetry ever written in the English language. This biography presents a comprehensive look at Byron's life

The book of nature by John Mason Good( Book )

1 edition published in 1831 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume, a biographical note recounting the author's life is followed by an introduction of how the author came to deliver the lectures contained in this volume: which is designed to take a systematic, but popular, survey of the most interesting features of the general science of nature, for the purpose of elucidating what has been found obscure, controverting and correcting what has been felt erroneous, and developing, by new and original views and hypotheses, much of what yet remains to be more satisfactorily explained, derives its origin from the following circumstances:--Towards the close of the year 1810, the author had the honour of receiving a visit from a deputation of the Directors of the Surrey Institution, founded on what had been antecedently the Leverian Museum, with a request on the part of their Chairman, Dr. Adam Clarke, that he would undertake a department of lectures in that literary and scientific establishment; with the generous offer of leaving to himself a nomination of time, terms, and subject. He regretted his inability of acceding to so kind a request at that particular period; but being a little more at liberty not long afterward, he readily consented, on a second application by Dr. Lettsom and other Directors; and the ensuing volume contains the course of study he ventured to make choice of; the lectures having been divided into series, and delivered in successive years.
