Welcome to the schoolroom of 1900. The moral tone is
plain. "She is kind to the old blind man."
The exercises are still suitable, and perhaps more helpful
than some contemporary alternatives. Much is left to the
teacher. Explanations given in the text are enough to get
started teaching a child to read and write. Counting in
Roman numerals is included as a bonus in the form of lesson
There is no text version because much of the material uses
specialized characters that have no ASCI equivalent.
Wherever possible the "ASCI" te...

IT was towards the evening of a day in early April that two ladies were seated by the open windows of a cottage in Devonshire. The lawn before them was gay with evergreens, relieved by the first few flowers and fresh turf of the reviving spring; and at a distance, through an opening amongst the trees, the ...

A MILITARY GENIUS.
LIFE OF ANNA ELLA CARROLL,
Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets. He wrote the poems The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan. His critical work, especially on Shakespeare, was highly influential, and he helped introduce German idealist philosophy to English-speaking culture. He coined many familiar words and phrases, including the celebrated suspension of disbelief. He was a major influence on Emerson, and American transcendentalism.

Plus sapit vulgus, quia tantum, quantum opus est, sapit.
by Wilson Follett
Mr. Cabell, in making ready this second or intended edition of THE CORDS OF VANITY, performs an act of reclamation which is at the same time an act of fresh creation.
For the purely reclamatory aspect of what he has done, his reward (so far as that can consist in anything save the doing) must come f...

The Prose of Alfred Lichtenstein
Max Mechenmal was an independent manager of a newspaper kiosk. He
ate and drank well; he had relations with many women, but he was
careful. Because his salary was insufficient, he occasionally
permitted himself to take money from Ilka Leipke. Ilka Leipke was an
unusually small, but well developed, elegant whore, who attracted
many men and women with her bizarre nature and apparently silly ideas,
as well as ...
