De Noordwestelijke Doorvaart De Aarde en haar Volken, 1909

First Page:

De Noordwestelijke Doorvaart.

Uit Roald Amundsen's verhaal van zijn pooltocht met de Gj"oa van 1906 tot 1907.

Boven de ontdekkingsreizen, die de poollanden met hun eeuwig ijs tot doel hadden, spant zich niet alleen de reine glans, die afstraalt van de witte sneeuwvelden, maar ook de weerschijn van heilige geestdrift. Als men de expedities voor de vischvangst, waar het poolonderzoek overigens veel aan verplicht is, uitzondert, mag men gerust aannemen, dat zelfs de vurigste dweper den weg naar het poolland nooit heeft ingeslagen in de hoop, daar gouden bergen te vi...

PREFACE

In this volume I have tried to show how Christmas is or has been kept in various lands and ages, and to trace as far as possible the origin of the pagan elements that have mingled with the Church's feast of the Nativity.

In Part I. I have dealt with the festival on its distinctively Christian side. The book has, however, been so plann...

The Stones of Venice, volume 1 –by: John Ruskin

The Stones of Venice is a three-volume treatise on Venetian art and architecture by English art historian John Ruskin, first published from 1851 to 1853. Intending to prove how the architecture in Venice exemplified the principles he discussed in his earlier work, The Seven Lamps of Architecture, Ruskin examined the city in detail, describing for example over eighty churches. He discusses architecture of Venice's Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance periods, and provides a general history of the city as well. The book aroused considerable interest in Victorian Britain and beyond. The chapter "The...

Exercises in Knitting

Mrs. Mee, her husband, and her sister ran a yarn and needlework import/warehouse business in Bath, England. Her books primarily contain practical everyday items that knit up quickly with the busy homemaker in mind. At this time, published knitting “receipts” did not contain abbreviations and were laborious to use. They were, however, rich in error!

Later in her career, due to circumstances of war and the resulting social stress and poverty, many of her knitting books were printed for ladies’ charitable societies, which used her knitting “receipts” to clothe the poor mill workers...

The Woman in White –by: Wilkie Collins

Wilkie Collins’s The Woman in White tells the story of two half-sisters, Laura Fairlie and Marian Halcombe who were embroiled in the sinister plot of Sir Percival Glyde and Count Fosco to take over their family’s wealth. It’s considered to be one of the first “sensation novels” to be published. Like most novels that fall into this category, the protagonists here are pushed to their limits by the villains before they finally got the justice they deserved.

The story begins with Walter Hartright helping a woman dressed in white who turned out to have escaped from a m...

PRFACE

Lorsque cette étude parut pour la première fois, M. Stuart Mill me fit l'honneur de m'écrire qu'on ne pouvait donner en peu de pages une idée plus exacte et plus complète du contenu de son livre, comme corps de doctrine philosophique. Seulement, ajoutait il, je crois que vous vous trompez en regardant ce point de vue comme particulièrement anglais. Il le fut dans la première moitié du XVIIIe siècle, à partir de Locke, et ...
