LITERATURE AND LIFE Last Days in a Dutch Hotel

LAST DAYS IN A DUTCH HOTEL

(1897)

When we said that we were going to Scheveningen, in the middle of September, the portier of the hotel at The Hague was sure we should be very cold, perhaps because we had suffered so much in his house already; and he was right, for the wind blew with a Dutch tenacity of purpose for a whole week, so that the guests thinly peopling the vast hostelry seemed to rustle through its chilly halls and corridors like so many autumn leaves. We were but a ...

Op den Tarn De Aarde en haar Volken, 1909 –by: M. Mendell

OP DEN TARN.

Door M. Mendell.

De lijn Clermont N^imes is een van de meest kunstige werkstukken op het gebied van spoorwegaanleg. Van Langeac tot Alais, een afstand van 154 K.M., telt, wie er 't noodige geduld voor heeft, 98 tunnels en 46 viaducten. Hieruit kan men reeds afleiden, hoe geaccidenteerd het terrein is. En werkelijk, de trein wringt zich als 't ware door bergen en over afgronden, om de nauwe vallei van de Allier te kunnen houden. Bijna overal is die vallei woest en verlaten, hetgeen een sterk contrast oplevert met het eerste deel van den weg...

Mass' George, by George Manville Fenn.

George Bruton, son of Captain Bruton is a young teenager. His father's plantation is in Georgia. The time is around the middle of the eighteenth century. Although not keen on the idea of slavery, Captain Bruton determines that he will buy one of them and will try to treat him extremely well. The man has a son, whom the family nickname Pompey, Pomp for short. Eventually these two become relaxed, realising that there will be no hard treatment f...

Through Siberia and Manchuria By Rail

BY

OLIVER G. READY

AUTHOR OF " Life and Sport in China "

NOTE

This short account of my journey from London to Shanghai by way of the Siberian Railway was at first intended for private circulation only, in order to meet the enquiries of numerous personal friends.

Now, however, that war has broken out between Russia and Japan, and that it may be years before this, the longest railway in the world, is again open to international traffic, I feel that any information, however slight...

Van Orenburg naar Samarkand De Aarde en haar Volken, 1873 –by: Vasilii Vasilevich Vereshchagin

VAN ORENBURG NAAR SAMARKAND.

Centraal Azi"e trekt in onze dagen de aandacht van allen, die niet alleen belang stellen in hetgeen in hunne onmiddellijke nabijheid gebeurt, maar ook in wat daar geschiedt en zich voorbereidt in gindsche verwijderde landstreken, vanwaar reeds meer dan eenmaal eene beslissende omwenteling in de wereldhistorie is uitgegaan. De uitbreiding der russische heerschappij in deze onmetelijke, zoo weinig bekende landen van Midden Azi"e is een feit van zeer groote beteekenis, waarvan de gevolgen zich eerst langzamerhand, wellicht...

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...
