The autobiography of Joseph Jefferson by Joseph Jefferson( Book )

1 edition published in 1890 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joe Jefferson was the most famous actor in 19th century America, and the richest. His story is the story of that theater, where his triumphs were built by his unparalleled genius for blending humor and pathos in his portrayals. A fourth-generation actor, he endured a challenging upbringing, beginning serious pursuit of his art at 17, slowly moving up the pecking order of the traditional stock company. By 21 he was an established comedian in New York. The Civil War he avoided by going to California, then on to Australia, South America, and London. There he became a great star and put the finishing touch on a work he had been fiddling with for some time--Washington Irving's famous tale of Rip Van Winkle. Back in America, his English reputation preceding him, "Rip" quickly grew into a national institution. The eternal touring--and the eternal gush of money--began: his fees were unequaled in the business, because his box-office results were unequaled. "Rip" become the most popular male role of the century, and Jefferson continued performing it into his seventies. This is his recounting of his life, and how he became one of the greatest stars of the American and world stage

The mountains of California by John MUIR( Book )

1 edition published in 1894 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famed naturalist John Muir (1838-1914) came to Wisconsin as a boy and studied at the University of Wisconsin. He first came to California in 1868 and devoted six years to the study of the Yosemite Valley. After work in Nevada, Utah, and Colorado, he returned to California in 1880 and made the state his home. One of the heroes of America's conservation movement, Muir deserves much of the credit for making the Yosemite Valley a protected national park and for alerting Americans to the need to protect this and other natural wonders. The mountains of California (1894) is his book length tribute to the beauties of the Sierras. He recounts not only his own journeys by foot through the mountains, glaciers, forests, and valleys, but also the geological and natural history of the region, ranging from the history of glaciers, the patterns of tree growth, and the daily life of animals and insects. While Yosemite naturally receives great attention, Muir also expounds on less well known beauty spots
