Glimpses of unfamiliar Japan by Lafcadio Hearn( Book )

2 editions published between 1894 and 1895 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an interpreter of Japan to the West, Lafcadio Hearn was without parallel in his time. His numerous books about that country were read with a fascination that was a tribute to his keen powers of observation and the vividness of his descriptions. Today, even though Japan has changed greatly from what it was when he wrote about it, his writing is still valid, for it captures the essence of the country-an essence that has actually changed a good deal less than outward appearances might suggest. In a word, the Japanese character and the Japanese tradition are still fundamentally the same as Hear

The bell-ringer of Angel's, and other stories by Francis Bret Harte( Book )

1 edition published in 1894 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francis Bret Harte was born on August 25, 1836 in Albany New York. As a young boy Harte developed an early love of books and reading. He first published at the tender age of 11; a satirical poem titled "Autumn Musings." Expecting praise he encountered anything but and was later to write "Such a shock was their ridicule to me that I wonder that I ever wrote another line of verse." By age 13 his formal education was at an end and four years later, in 1853, the family moved to California. Here the young man worked in a variety of capacities; miner, teacher, messenger, and journalist. But it was also here on the West coast that he found the stories and inspiration for the works that would endure his fame across the literary world. He championed the early writings of Mark Twain. He was instrumental in propelling the short story genre forward and brought tales of the Old West and the Gold Rush to a greater audience. At the height of his fame we would entertain staggering monetary offers to write for monthly magazines. His talents extended to poetry, plays, lectures, book reviews, editorials, and magazine sketches. As he moved location initially further east to New York and then through Consular appointments to Europe and finally to settle in England his audience diminished but he continued to experiment, to write and to publish. Bret Harte died of throat cancer on May 5th 1902 and is buried in St Peter's Church in Frimley, Surrey, England. Here we publish another very fine collection of his short stories; "The Bell Ringer of Angel's & Other Stories"

Deephaven by Sarah Orne Jewett( Book )

3 editions published between 1894 and 1895 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While often called a novel, this book consists of 13 tightly interwoven stories, a familiar format for Jewett. Two 24-year-old city dwellers, Helen Denis and Kate Lancaster, visit the rural Maine town of Deephaven for the summer. Over the course of their stay they meet many idiosyncratic locals, including the eccentric lighthouse keeper Mrs. Kew, the town gossip Olive Grant, and others. The two women compare life in the city to life in the country, and Jewett uses their experiences to contrast the two sides of the American experience. Several of the chapters were previously published by Jewett's friend James Thomas Fields in the Atlantic Monthly
