Een spoorwegreis in Korea De Aarde en haar Volken, 1908 –by: S. Kalff

First Page:

EEN SPOORWEGREIS IN KOREA.

Door S. Kalff.

Voor een paar jaren eerst werd in Korea de lijn Seoul Wijuer voltooid; in 1905 waren de werkzaamheden zoover gevorderd dat de europeesche bewoners van de hoofdstad van het "Land van de Morgenkalmte" er aan denken konden om voor eene reis naar het binnenland van deze lijn gebruik te maken.

Een hunner beschrijft het reisje naar Pyeng Yang (de oude hoofdstad des lands) en Syen Chou aldus:

Het eerste wat ik te doen had was, mij te voorzien van een pas, geteekend door den japanschen militairen kommandant (de Japann...

REIS DOOR GRIEKENLAND.

I

Vermoedelijk zullen de meesten mijner lezers het zich niet meer herinneren, dat ik hen, nu omstreeks zeven jaren geleden, [1] in het hart van Arkadië, in het dorp Andritzena, heb achter gelaten. Nu, het is inderdaad mijne schuld niet dat onze reistocht gedurende zoo langen tijd werd gestaakt; en het is ook een geluk, dat mijne lezers op hun gemak, in hun eigen huis, het hervatten van de reis hebben kunnen afwachten. Hadden zij dien tijd werkelijk moeten doorbrengen in het huis van Alkibiades Koutzavas, onzen gastheer, en zich...

Fritz and Eric The Brother Crusoes

First Page:

Fritz and Eric, or the Brother Crusoes

by John Conroy Hutcheson This is rather an extraordinary book, because it consists of two rather different eras in the lives of two brothers. In the first the brother Fritz takes part in the Franco Prussian war of 1870 71, and is severely wounded, but survives just. He is tended by a beauteous maiden, with whom he falls in love.

Meanwhile the brother Eric has gone to sea in what turns out to be a rotten old vessel, which sinks in southern waters. Th...

Handbook to the new Gold-fields

First Page:

Handbook to the New Gold Fields, by R.M. Ballantyne.

This book was one of several books written by Ballantyne in or about 1858, for Nelson, the publishers. From a literary point of view it does not rank very high, because it was a "pot boiler", and not one of Ballantyne's dashing and spirited books for teenagers. There were three other books in this category, and we do not rate very high our chances of finding any of them and adding it to our collection.

Much of the book consists of...
