More > Ireland. Although the activities of the Presbyterian community in the north of Ireland have been well documented, particularly in relation to the development of the present Province of Ulster and in America, their place in the country as a whole has often been discounted. In particular they played a significant role in its economic progress. This book is an attempt to chart the lives and activities of one family of Ulster-Scots merchants who left their home in the North to play a part in the wider history of Ireland. A study of the families into which they married, particularly the Moores of Londonderry, the Joneses of Oldham and the Ardouins of Paris, broadens the picture to demonstrate the family and business links that involved all of the British Isles and spread on to the Continent.< Less

Evelina By Fanny Burney
eBook (ePub): $3.99
Frances Burney's first and most enduringly popular novel is a vivid, satirical, and seductive account of the pleasures and dangers of fashionable life in late eighteenth-century London. As she... More > describes her heroine's entry into society, womanhood and, inevitably, love, Burney exposes the vulnerability of female innocence in an image-conscious and often cruel world where social snobbery and sexual aggression are played out in the public arenas of pleasure-gardens, theatre visits, and balls. But Evelina's innocence also makes her a shrewd commentator on the excesses and absurdities of manners and social ambitions--as well as attracting the attention of the eminently eligible Lord Orville. Evelina, comic and shrewd, is at once a guide to fashionable London, a satirical attack on the new consumerism, an investigation of women's position in the late eighteenth century, and a love story. The new introduction and full notes to this edition help make this richness all the more readily available to a modern reader.< Less
