Theodore Roosevelt; an intimate biography by William Roscoe Thayer( Book )

40 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in English and held by 1,254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A biography of Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), as an individual person and as the 26th president of the United States between 1901-1909. He was a son of Theodore Roosevelt and Martha Bulloch, and he married Edith Carow. The author (a friend but not a political follower) felt that President Roosevelt's principal contribution to the nation was in social welfare legislature, through "... beginning and carrying forward the war for the reconciliation between Capital and Labor ... Does any one now defend selling liquor to children ... Does any one defend sweat-shops, or the manufacture of cigars under worse than unsanitary conditions? Which of the packers who protested against the Meat Inspection Bill, would care to have his name made public; and which of the lawyers and of the accomplices in the lobby and in Congress would care to have it known that he used every means, fair and foul, to prevent depriving the packers of the privilege of canning bad meat for Americans, although foreigners insisted that the canned meat which they bought should be wholesome and inspected? Does any American now doubt the wisdom and justice of conserving the natural resources, of saving our forests and our mineral supplies, and of controlling the watershed from which flows the water-supply of of entires States?"--P.ix-xi
The best Elizabethan plays by William Roscoe Thayer( Book )

24 editions published between 1890 and 1970 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains some of the finest plays of the Elizabethan era, including Christopher Marlowe's The Jew of Malta. Reading Marlowe's work alongside that of his most prominent contemporaries offers a worthwhile opportunity to compare and contrast. The Elizabethan era was a thrilling, fertile period of creative production when plays were one of the most common forms of entertainment. Unfortunately, most of the these plays have been lost, but this volume contains some of the finest examples to have survived. Read Marlowe, then hold his work up to that of other dramatists like Ben Johnson, John Webster and William Shakespeare
