Lipton's autobiography; with twenty-four illustrations by Thomas Johnstone Lipton( Book )

5 editions published in 1932 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Klosterheim:, or, The masque. by Thomas De Quincey( )

3 editions published in 1832 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written halfway between Confessions of an English opium-eater (1822) and the great, but fragmentary, Suspiria de profundis of the 1840s, Klosterheim is ostensibly a gothic fantasy in the manner of Ann Radcliffe, set in Germany during the Thirty Years' War. But De Quincey's gothic has a particular function, unlocking a door into the opium-taker's world of illusion and dream. He is writing at a period of desperate need and continuing addiction, and writing very well. Coleridge claimed to have read nothing since Quentin Durward that 'would compare in interest with Klosterheim', adding that De Quincey achieves a 'purity of style and idiom' to which Scott does not aspire."--Jacket

Childe Harold's pilgrimage : a romaunt by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

3 editions published in 1812 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" is Lord Byron at his best-strumming all the right lyrical cords of the hearts of men and women. Byron was a man of his time--faults and all--but who used the literary art to rise above the common lot of aristocrats. Some beautiful excerpts would include "There is a pleasure in the pathless woods/There is a rapture on the lonely shore" or "To such as see thee not my words were weak; To those who gaze on thee, what language could they speak?" There is no better way to feel Byron's craft and the development of his soul and style than by reading "Child Harold's Pilgrimage," a lengthy narrative poem first published in the early 1800's and dedicated to "Ianthe", the term of endearment he used for Charlotte Harley (the artist Francis Bacon's great-great-grandmother). "Child Harold's Pilgrimage" describes the travels and reflections of a world-weary young man who, disillusioned with a life of pleasure and revelry, looks for distraction in foreign lands; in a wider sense, it is an expression of the melancholy and disillusionment felt by a generation weary of the wars of the post-Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras. The title comes from the term childe, a medieval title for a young man who was a candidate for knighthood

Essay on the theory of the earth by Georges, baron Cuvier( Book )

2 editions published between 1813 and 1822 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essay on the Theory of the Earth was the last work of the scientific writer Robert Kerr who translated it from the introductory essay of George Cuvier's four-volume Recherches sur les ossements fossiles de quadrupèdes. Before its first publication in 1813, the essay was partly expanded by the geologist and natural historian Robert Jameson who wrote a preface and included extensive notes on mineralogy. Using geological evidence as its principal source of enquiry, Cuvier's essay attempts to address the questions of the origins of the human race, the formation of the earth, and the correlation between incomplete fossil remains and existing species of animals. Extremely influential in its own time, the essay remains a source of considerable insight into the early development of geological research, examining issues of continued significance today
