"In the early hours of 13 September, 1759, Major General James Wolfe ordered his army to scale the Heights of Abraham and prepare to bring the French to battle outside Quebec. Shortly after ten o'clock that morning, Montcalm's men began their advance towards the British. Twice wounded, Wolfe waited until the French were only forty yards away before giving the order to open fire. The ensuing musket volley effectively proclaimed the destruction of France's empire in Canada. Minutes later, wounded once more, this time in the chest, Wolfe was dead. He was 32." "Wolfe of Quebec is the authoritative biography of a legendary soldier who died at the moment of his greatest triumph. Wolfe emerges as a perplexing but attractive conundrum. Slight of physique and suffering from tuberculosis, he seemed ill-prepared to direct a protracted campaign in a harsh continent, and his eccentricity sometimes lent him an air of madness. But his leadership was brilliant and his moral courage unquestionable."--Jacket

Wedgwood jasper by Robin Reilly( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jasper was not only the outstanding invention of Josiah Wedgwood's life as a potter; it was also the most significant innovation in ceramics since the discovery of porcelain by the Chinese some nine hundred years earlier. It has been by far the most avidly collected of all Wedgwood wares from the eighteenth century until the present day and is still the style by which the firm is most readily recognized throughout the world. It continues to be produced in the 1990s, the classical foundations of its original style having helped to give it a longer life than any other ornamental pottery or porcelain." "This study is drawn from Robin Reilly's massive and highly acclaimed two-volume history of the Wedgwood firm and its production (1989)." "In a specially written Part I, he provides a brief but clear narrative chronology of the firm and its principal products. In Parts 2 and 3, he presents a uniquely comprehensive and fully documented account of every aspect of jasper's long history. Complete with over 600 illustrations, each with a detailed description, and invaluable appendices on Wedgwood trademarks, cameos, intaglios, medals, medallions, tablets, plaques, busts and figures, this is, in every sense, a standard work, which may be considered definitive."--Jacket
