Letters from America by Rupert Brooke( Book )

A fascinating collection of letters from English poet Rupert Brooke. Description from the introductory note:The author started in May 1913 on a journey to the United States, Canada, and the South Seas, from which he returned next year at the beginning of June. The first thirteen chapters of this book were written as letters to the Westminster Gazette.

The two remaining chapters appeared in the New States

A little tour in France by Henry James( Book )

5 editions published between 1885 and 1900 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I am ashamed to begin with saying that Touraine is the garden of France; that remark has long ago lost its bloom. The town of Tours, however, has some thing sweet and bright, which suggests that it is sur- rounded by a land of fruits. It is a very agreeable little city; few towns of its size are more ripe, more complete, or, I should suppose, in better humor with themselves and less disposed to envy the responsibili- ties of bigger places

The ivory tower by Henry James( Book )

2 editions published in 1917 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1914, Henry James began work on a major novel about the immense new fortunes of America's Gilded Age. After an absence of more than twenty years, James had returned for a visit to his native country; what he found there filled him with profound dismay. In The Ivory Tower, his last book, the characteristic pattern underlying so much of his fiction - in which American "innocence" is transformed by its encounter with European "experience"--Receives a new twist: raised abroad, the hero comes home to America to confront, as James puts it, "the black and merciless things that are behind the great possessions."" "James died in 1916 with the first three books of The Ivory Tower completed. He also left behind a "treatment," in which he charted the further progress of his story. This fascinating scenario, one of only two to survive among James's papers, is also published here together with a striking critical essay by Ezra Pound."--Jacket

A small boy and others by Henry James( Book )

1 edition published in 1913 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written when James was 70, "A Small Boy and Others" is a dramatic monologue on a young boy's search for "the aesthetic clue." James finds his evidence in the refined reconstructions of his family life, his imagination, his travel, and his memories of the streets and neighborhoods of 19th-century New York. "A Small Boy and Others" is a very personal study of fate, memory, and the wonder of youthful conciousness and curiosity. It is also a love letter of sorts to New York City in the third quarter of the 19th century
