THE TRAVELS OF SIR JOHN MANDEVILLE

THE PROLOGUE

FOR as much as the land beyond the sea, that is to say the Holy Land, that men call the Land of Promission or of Behest, passing all other lands, is the most worthy land, most excellent, and lady and sovereign of all other lands, and is blessed and hallowed of the precious body and blood of our Lord Jesu Christ; in the which land it liked him to take flesh and blood of the Virgin Mary, to environ that holy land with his ble...

Birdseye Views of Far Lands

Birdseye Views of Far Lands is an interesting, wholesome presentation of something that a keen-eyed, alert traveler with the faculty of making contrasts with all classes of people in all sorts of places, in such a sympathetic way as to win their esteem and confidence, has been able to pick up as he has roamed over the face of the earth for a quarter of a century.

The book is not a geography, a history, a treatise on sociology or political economy. It is a Human Interest book which appeals to the reader who would like to go as the writer has gone and to see as the writer has seen the con...

How to Tie Flies –by: Ellery Clark Gregg

First Page:

[Transcriber's Note: This transcription attempts to follow page numbering and capitalization as closely as possible. Occasionally, a paragraph spans more than one page with one or more full page sized illustrations between the pages, thus splitting the paragraph. This required adjustment to the numbering of some pages.

The listing of the Barns Sports Library has been relocated to the end of the book in order to improve continuity.

The table of "Standard Dressings Of 334 Flies" actually has only 319 dressings.]

HOW TO BE A GOOD RADIO ACTOR

The play in this book has actually been produced on the radio. Possibly you have listened to this one when you tuned in at home. The persons whose voices you heard as you listened, looked just as they did when they left their homes to go to the studio, although they were taking the parts ...
