The backwoods of Canada : being letters from the wife of an emigrant officer, illustrative of the domestic economy of British America by Catherine Parr Strickland Traill( )

2 editions published in 1836 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catharine Parr Traills The Backwoods of Canada, first published in 1836, gives an intimate and vivid picture of life in the bush country of Upper Canada. The series of letters that make up the book cover a period of two and half years. Though most were originally written to her mother, the letters were later compiled and published for an intended audience of future female emigrants.?Traills account of life in the New World is cheerful and buoyant despite the hardships she relaysfrom the three-month journey to Upper Canada by ship to settling in the bush near Peterborough, Ontario. The letters offer remarkable insight into the skills a well-suited woman might be expected to learn, but the lasting appeal of her work is due to her astute observations of changing notions of class and economy, which reached well beyond her stated audience.?Traill typified a new type of womanthe pioneerand contributed much to an emerging understanding of Canada and Canadian identity

The animal-lore of Shakespeare's time : including quadrupeds, birds, reptiles, fish and insects by Emma Phipson( Book )

2 editions published in 1883 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shakespeare's plays contain a rich abundance of metaphors, similes and phrases relating to animals and the natural world, much of which can seem obscure to us today. First published in 1883, Emma Phipson's classic study sets in context the animal lore of the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries to show how it affected the literature of the time. Drawing on a collection of compelling sources, this book explores the beliefs about natural science that influenced the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Phipson considers obscure writings by naturalists and antiquarians on a wide range of animals from the familiar to the exotic, and from the real to the mythical. Whether discussing hedgehogs or unicorns, the text shows how the Elizabethans' understanding of animals was coloured by hunting, travel, folklore and the Bible, and how this had a lasting impact upon language and culture
Life and times of Sir Joshua Reynolds : with notices of some of his contemporaries by Charles Robert Leslie( Book )

2 editions published in 1865 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume life of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-92) was begun by the Royal Academician Charles Leslie (1794-1859), who had previously published a life of John Constable, also reissued in this series. On Leslie's death, the journalist and dramatist Tom Taylor (1817-80) completed the work, published in 1865. Leslie's motive was that he felt that Reynolds had been unfairly treated by an earlier biography. He aimed to show that Reynolds was 'the genial centre of a most various and brilliant society, as well as the transmitter of its chief figures to our time by his potent art'. One of the greatest artists of the eighteenth century, especially famous for his portraits, Reynolds was also instrumental in founding the Royal Academy, and was its first president. Volume 2 begins in 1773, and ends with Reynolds' death. Leslie also provides an assessment of his status as an artist
Through the Dark continent : or, The sources of the Nile around the great lakes of equatorial Africa, and down the Livingstone river to the Atlantic ocean by Henry M Stanley( Book )

2 editions published in 1878 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps best known as the intrepid adventurer who located the missing explorer David Livingstone in equatorial Africa in 1871, Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904) played a major role in assembling the fragmented discoveries and uncertain geographical knowledge of central Africa into a coherent picture. He was the first European to explore the Congo River; assisted at the founding of the Congo Free State, and helped pave the way for the opening up of modern Africa. In this classic account of one of his most important expeditions, the venerable Victorian recounts the incredibly difficult and perilous journey during which he explored the great lakes of Central Africa, confirming their size and position, searched for the sources of the Nile, and traced the unknown Congo River from the depths of the continent to the sea
