Forget Mr Darcy, Jane’s got her teeth into the Kings and Queens of England. The author of Pride & Prejudice was just 15 when she wrote this hilarious parody of school history books, but her... More > quick wit shines through. Richard III may have murdered his nephew, but "I am rather inclined to suppose him a Very Respectable Man", Lady Jane Grey is dismissed as an airhead and the only good word Jane has for Henry VIII is that he was not as bad as daughter Elizabeth. Not published until a century after her death, this witty and lively comedy was a family secret for generations. Previously known by academics, the book at last gets a wider audience. Anyone who loves a light hearted romp through history. Some critics dubbed this the Monty Python of its day, and modern readers will discover that Jane Austen would have been as much at home with Blackadder and Baldrick as Mrs Bennet and Lady Catherine. With a new introduction by Sophie-Ann Devonshire and illustrations by Jane's sister Cassandra.< Less

History of Civilisation In England By HENRY BUCKLE
eBook (ePub): $2.99
HENRY BUCKLE History of Civilisation in England Henry Thomas Buckle was born at Lee, in Kent, England, Nov. 24, 1821. Delicate health prevented him from following the ordinary school course. His... More > father's death in 1840 left him independent, and the boy who was brought up in Toryism and Calvinism, became a philosophic radical and free-thinker. He travelled, he read, he acquired facility in nineteen languages and fluency in seven. Gradually he conceived the idea of a great work which should place history on an entirely new footing; it should concern itself not with the unimportant and the personal, but with the advance of civilisation, the intellectual progress of man. As the idea developed, he perceived that the task was greater than could be accomplished in the lifetime of one man.< Less

IT was the winter of 18—, between fifty and sixty years ago. Certainly the winters of New England began earlier and were more severe than they have seemed at a later period. After the fervid... More > heat of summer has become subdued by the progressive changes of the season, no atmosphere could be clearer, purer, more exhilarating than the prevailing tone of our October days, and this kindly influence, as if by way of preparing the human frame for the gradual approach of winter, generally extends, with occasional stormy intermissions, through November, and often very far into the frosty domain of December itself. And such snow-storms as we once endured! It may be alleged, that distance of time forbids accuracy of comparison, and that masses of snow, which appeared vast to a child, would not seem so immense to a full-grown man, and were really no more huge than some of those with which winter nowadays envelopes the ground. .....< Less

We had driven already two or three hundred miles, seeking only that which we found daily, scenery, sunshine, birds, flowers, whatever of nature and whatever of humanity might be seen as we wandered along New England roads...." -- W.

IN Northern New England, in the traditional good old times, to own a house was a condition of thrifty citizenship. For this a young couple would toil early and late with heroic self-denial. No matter... More > how humble this home was, it must be one's own. When a man married, he at once set up a household, and, as he needed, he let out his four walls, and seamed and patched them. His barns ran over, and he added to them. He planted an orchard, and set out poplars before his door. The roughness of toil was ground into his bones and muscles. He grew hard-featured and hard-fisted, while his wife grew jaded and angular. Their children became like them. They were all weather-changed into a kind of peculiar peasantry, — a readily recognized product of their condition, — the busy, honest, persistent, hopeful, helpful New England farmer's family. The visible signs of their labors were hardly more than an orchard of straggling trees; the annual rotation of crops; and the daily spilling out from the doors of family-life.....< Less

"PROBABLY no one ever made a book for the reason which induces the making of this. The papers here gathered were written..., to a daily newspaper, the New York Journal of Commerce, in the course... More > of a correspondence which has extended over more than forty years. Although often asked to gather them in a book, my judgment has been that such letters..., are not good material for continuous reading in a solid book. They were written for the purpose of a day, served their purpose..., and I had no wish to recall them. But they had been cut out and preserved by more than one person, strangers to me, who have severally written me that if I do not make a book of them they will! Should such a book be made by another person, it would perpetuate many sad errors of type,... and be a misfortune to the papers and to me. There was but one way to protect the dead and long-buried sketches — namely, to select some of them, revise, correct, and edit them, and make a book, which I have done only because I did not want it made."< Less
