There are many books of many kinds and this volume properly classified would probably belong to the “sui generis,” “sic trasit gloria mundi” variety. If the reader has grown a... More > little rusty on classic Latin I do not mind saying to him further that the latter phrase has been sometimes translated, “My glorious old aunt has been sick ever since Monday,” but I do not think that this revised version has been generally accepted as strictly orthodox. This book cannot be said to have been written without rhyme or reason for its pages hold more rhyme than poetry and three reasons at least, have conspired to give it literary existence. A hundred years and more from now it may be that some far descendant of the author, while fingering the musty shelves of some old library, may find some modest satisfaction in the thought that his ancient sire had “writ” a book.< Less

The Holy Roman Empire (Illustrated) By James Bryce
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“The object of this treatise is not so much to give a narrative history of the countries included in the Romano-Germanic Empire—Italy during the middle ages, Germany from the ninth... More > century to the nineteenth—as to describe the Holy Empire itself as an institution or system, the wonderful offspring of a body of beliefs and traditions which have almost wholly passed away from the world. Such a description, however, would not be intelligible without some account of the great events which accompanied the growth and decay of imperial power; and it has therefore appeared best to give the book the form rather of a narrative than of a dissertation; and to combine with an exposition of what may be called the theory of the Empire an outline of the political history of Germany, as well as some notices of the affairs of mediæval Italy.”< Less
