Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic of gothic literature follows the Pyncheon family in pre- and post-colonial New England, in their ancestral home; the titular House of the Seven Gables. Published... More > in 1851 at the height of the Gothic fiction craze, Hawthorne's book follows two time frames: one involves flashbacks to the late 17th century, while the other is set in the author's present day of the mid-19th century. We witness the events leading up to the Salem witch trials, and the construction of a house which came to epitomise the foreboding gloom of late Gothic architecture.

The newly-built mansion is thought to harbor a curse when Colonel Pyncheon dies during its housewarming party. Thereafter this event overshadows the lives of the Pyncheon family members, who begin to feel the house and its grim legacy weigh on their shoulders.< Less

Sarvastivada Literature By Anukul Chandra Banerjee
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Classic study on the history and literature of the Sarvastivada Buddhist school in ancient Northern India. The part of most enduring importance is the detailed paraphrase summary including references... More > to the Tibetan translation of the Sarvastivada Vinayavastu. It should be noted that Banerjee here has not seperated 'Sarvastivadin' from 'Mulasarvastivadin' texts, which is probably for the best in a work of this sort because the nature of the distinction (if it was really a distinction at all) is very ambiguous and still subject to inconclusive debate. Apparently pages 24 to 89 are missing from this pdf, apologies for this. If you're desperate for the complete file, I may have the missing pages in jpeg format on backup disc, email me.< Less
