A dystopian view of the end of the world, written back in 1907 with all the classic vintage sci-fi charm of flying machines and synthetic and electric everything. The author's preface... More > reads: "I am perfectly aware that this is a terribly sensational book, and open to innumerable criticisms on that account, as well as on many others. But I did not know how else to express the principles I desired (and which I passionately believe to be true) except by producing their lines to a sensational point. I have tried, however, not to scream unduly loud, and to retain, so far as possible, reverence and consideration for the opinions of other people. Whether I have succeeded in that attempt is quite another matter." This edition adds a few footnotes to explain the references to the Latin Mass and prayers which Catholics of the time would have taken for granted plus anything else the publisher had to look up while reading.< Less

An Abridgement of Murray's Grammar By Martin Joseph Kerney

An Abridgement of Murray's English Grammar and Exercises; with questions, adapted to the use of schools and academies; also an appendix, containing rules and observations for writing with perspicuity... More > and accuracy by M J Kerney, author of Compendium of Ancient and Modern History. Murray's Grammar, published in 1795, was a classic study of the English language. Lindley Murray put it together for a ladies' college in York. It became wildly successful and has been edited, expanded and abridged many times over. Martin Joseph Kerney was a teacher from Baltimore, Maryland. He started a Catholic school and needed textbooks, so started working on making them. He found Murray's full Grammar too "prolix" or long-winded and some of the existing abridgements too concise, so he made a new abridgement which combined the Grammar and Exercises into one slim volume. If you ever wondered about Iambs, Trochees and Liquescent Consonants, this is the book for you.< Less
