The betrothed : a tale of the Crusaders by Walter Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 1880 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Betrothed is an 1825 novel, by Sir Walter Scott. It is the first part of the Tales of the Crusaders, along with The Talisman. Scott himself was pessimistic about the success of the book, and Hesketh Pearson, his biographer has written:"The Betrothed was clearly composed in a somnolent if not stertorous condition, and would score high marks in a competition to decide which was the dreariest and stupidest book ever produced by a writer of genius." (Walter Scott: His Life and Personality, p. 54)-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

American scenery by Nathaniel Parker Willis( Book )

2 editions published in 1840 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathaniel Parker Willis (1806-67) came from a publishing family and began his writing career with contributions to magazines. He also wrote poetry and plays but is best remembered as a travel writer. In this two-volume work of 1840, his contribution (described on the title page as 'the literary department') was to provide a narrative for prints from the engravings of William Henry Bartlett (1809-54), the famous British landscape artist, who followed already established tourist routes in the United States to make his drawings. Each of Bartlett's 119 engravings is accompanied by a short essay by Willis, who states in the preface that it is his intention to bring to the reader at home 'at small cost' the sensations of travel which 'those whose lot is domestic and retired' would never be in a position to experience for themselves. This extremely popular work remained in print for thirty years
