Malheureusement pour moi comme pour le lecteur ceci n'est point un roman, mais la traduction fidŠle d'un r‚cit fort grave ‚crit … Padoue en d‚cembre 1585.

Je me trouvais … Mantoue il y a quelques ann‚es, je cherchais des ‚bauches et de petits tableaux en rapport avec ma petite fortune, mais je voulais les peintres ant‚rieurs … l'an 1600, vers cette ‚poque acheva de mourir l'originalit‚ italienne d‚j… mise en grand p‚ril par la prise de Florence en 1530.

Popular Tales from the Norse

The most careless reader can hardly fail to see that many of the Tales in this volume have the same groundwork as those with which he has been familiar from his earliest youth. They are Nursery Tales, in fact, of the days when there were tales in nurseries–old wives’ fables, which have faded away before the light of gas and the power of steam. (Excerpt from Popular Tales from the Norse.)

Overdue The Story of a Missing Ship

Overdue The Story of a Missing Ship

By Harry Collingwood Another very well written book by Collingwood. As he was a naval architect you can rely upon his descriptions of the deck and sails of a vessel of the mid nineteenth century, the period of which he writes.

Our hero, the 17 year old midshipman of the Salamis, is suddenly given the job of going aboard and taking command of the Mercury, an emigrant ship that they find drifting in mid ocean, all her officers having died in various...

The Wonderful Bed

Three children sent to stay the night with their Aunt Jane find themselves sharing an enormous bed. So enormous is it, that when they make a tent of the bedsheets and crawl in, they never make it to the foot of the bed, crawling instead into a dreamworld of caves and pirates and adventures.

Automatically, one thinks of the general run of earnest, handsome, firm jawed, level eyed, smooth voiced gentlemen one sees on one's TV screen. No matter which news service on...
