"Boję się strzelać" powtórzył Haydock bezradnie. Ale w tej samej chwili huknął strzał. Kobieta zachwiała się i upadła, nie wypuściwszy Betty z objęć. Mężczyźni podbiegli do niej. Pani Sprout trzymała w ręku dymiący rewolwer. Dygotała gwałtownie, źrenice miała rozszerzone. Jak automat przeszła kilka kroków i stanęła. Tomasz ukląkł przy ciałach. Obrócił je ostrożnie. Zobaczył twarz kobiety, spostrzegł niezwykłe, posępne piękno jej rysów. Oczy otworzyły się, spojrzały na niego i zaszły mgłą. Westchnąwszy cicho, kobieta umarła, postrzelona śmiertelnie w głowę

The fair maid of Perth by Walter Scott( Book )

5 editions published between 1965 and 2006 in Polish and Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fair Maid of Perth centres on the merchant classes of Perth in the fourteenth century, and their commitment to the pacific values of trade, in a bloody and brutal era in which no right to life is recognised, and in which the Scottish nobles fight for control of the weak Scottish monarchy, and clans are prepared to extinguish each other to gain supremacy in the central Highlands. It is a remarkable novel, in part because late in his career Scott has a new subject, and in part because he employs a spare narrative style that is without parallel in the rest of his oeuvre." "Far too many critics, from his son-in-law J. G Lockhart to the present day, have written-off late Scott, and have seen his last works as evidence of failing powers. The readers of this edition of The Fair Maid of Perth will see that these critics are mistaken, for in it we see a luminous creative intelligence working at high pressure to produce a tightly organised and deeply moving novel."--BOOK JACKET

The valley of the moon by Jack London( Book )

5 editions published between 1957 and 2006 in Polish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A road novel fifty years before Kerouac, The Valley of the Moon traces the odyssey of Billy and Saxon Roberts from the labor strife in Oakland at the turn of the century through central and northern California in search of beautiful land they can farm independently - a journey that echoes Jack London's own escape from urban poverty. As he lost hope in the prospects of the socialist party and organized labor, London began researching a scientific and environmentally sound approach to agriculture. In his novel it is Saxon, London's most fully realized heroine, who embodies these concerns. The Valley of the Moon is London's paean to his wife Charmian and to the pastoral life and his ranch in Glen Ellen, the Valley of the Moon. A new foreword by Kevin Starr comments on the themes of the novel and its interest for contemporary readers."--Jacket
