Travels in the Atlas and southern Morocco : a narrative of exploration by Joseph Thomson( Book )

20 editions published between 1889 and 2016 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In introducing this book to the reader, little need be said. It is nothing more than what it pretends to be - a Personal Narrative of Exploration. It does not claim to be a book on Morocco, and consequently may appear in many respects to be very defective. To write such a book was originally my ambition when I turned my attention to that remarkable country, but the abrupt and premature conclusion of my travels has made me perforce alter my intention, and devote myself to recording only something of what we saw and experienced in the parts in which we travelled. It has, moreover, been as much my object to sketch pictures as to chronicle facts. For the same reason this book has been made a personal narrative, with its inevitable frequent use of the first person singular or plural"--Preface
Thomson through Masai Land by Joseph Thomson( Book )

C'est pour une mission purement géographique que Joseph Thomson met pied au pays des Massaï en 1883, ces "mystérieuses contrées de l'intérieur" du continent. Le livre est étayé de gravures, de photographies prises par l'auteur, et de la carte qu'il a élaborée à l'aide des documents recueillis au cours de l'expédition.

Epistola de tolerantia. A letter on toleration by John Locke( Book )

3 editions published in 1788 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locke argued that religious belief ought to be compatible with reason, that no king, prince or magistrate rules legitimately without the consent of the people, and that government has no right to impose religious beliefs or styles of worship on the public. Locke's defense of religious tolerance and freedom of thought was revolutionary in its time. Even today, his letter poses a challenge to religious intolerance, whether state-sponsored or originating from religious dogmatists. Based on both Locke's original Latin and the seventeenth-century English translation of William Popple, this edition offers a reader-friendly version that remains loyal to the original text. In addition to a forty-page introduction that situates the Letter in its historical and philosophical contexts, this edition includes excerpts from writings on religious toleration by William Penn, Baruch Spinoza, Pierre Bayle, and Samuel von Pufendorf, as well as generous selections from the famous Locke-Proast debates on religious toleration. -- Publisher website
