Notes by the Way in A Sailor's Life

By

Captain Arthur E. Knights

Introduction.

In 1898 I was in Hongkong on a business affair which gave me much leisure, when Murray Bain, editor of the China Mail, whom I had long known, asked why I did not send him a letter occasionally. This led to my venturing to give him "Some Notes by the Way in A Sailor's Life."

These Notes, I considered, could only be of interest locally. But some of my friends have urged me to overcome my diffidence and put them in pamphlet form, which I now do for distribution among my ...

Claude passait devant l'H^otel de ville, et deux heures du matin sonnaient à l'horloge, quand l'orage éclata. Il s'était oublié à r^oder dans les Halles, par cette nuit br^ulante de juillet, en artiste fl^aneur, amoureux du Paris nocturne: Brusquement, les gouttes tombèrent si larges, si drues, qu'il prit sa course, galopa dégingandé, éperdu, le long du quai de la Grève. Mais, au pont Louis Philippe, une colère de son essoufflement l'arrêta: il trouvait imbécile cette peur de l'eau; et, dans les ténèbres épaisses,...

A Text-Book of the History of Painting –by: John Charles Van Dyke

A TEXT-BOOK OF THE HISTORY OF PAINTING
BY JOHN C. VAN DYKE, L.H.D.
PREFACE.
The object of this series of text-books is to provide concise teachable histories of art for class-room use in schools and colleges. The limited time given to the study of art in the average educational institution has not only dictated the condensed style of the volumes, but has limited their scope of matter to the general features of art history. Archaeological discussions on special subjects and aesthetic theories have been avoided. The main facts of history as settled by the best authorities are given. If ...
