In a series of episodes as fantastic as any fiction, a powerful civilization crumbled at the hands of a small band of warriors. Written by one of America's great historians, this gripping chronicle draws upon the firsthand accounts of eminent sixteenth-century captains and statesmen to relate the overthrow of the Inca empire by the Spanish adventurers under Pizarro's command. Author William H. Prescott's immensely readable narrative crackles with drama as he characterizes both conqueror and conquered. Rich in vivid anecdotes, it recaptures the glories of Inca society before European contact, and it paints fascinating portraits of the conquistadors and their courage, cruelty, and pride. Prescott's reconstructions of the attitudes and motivations behind the tumultuous events of the Spanish conquest offer memorable, insightful views of New World history that have made this book a popular classic. - Amazon
The age of Shakespeare : (1579-1631). With an introd. by Prof. Hales by Thomas Seccombe( Book )

This second of a two-volume study of the literature of Shakespeare's time covers the dramatic works, leaving the verse and prose for another volume. Here, the authors consider the state of pre-Shakespearean drama in works by writers such as Kyd, Lyly, and Marlowe; then the plays of the Bard himself are discussed--including brief chapters on metrical developments, Shakespeare's use of prose within the plays, and some notes on his world view and on the First Folio. Finally, the authors evaluate the works of Shakespeare's later contemporaries and succesors: Jonson, Beaumont and Fletcher, Webster, and Middleton, among others
The private papers of Henry Ryecroft by George Gissing( Book )

3 editions published between 1902 and 1928 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1903, The Private Papers of Henry Ryecroft brought Gissing great acclaim. Heavily autobiographical, the novel is written in the form of a memoir of the last happy years of a writer who had struggled through the grubby world of journalism, but thanks to a legacy late in life was able – unlike Gissing himself – to retire to the countryside
