213 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nothing more strangely indicates an enormous and silent evil of modern society than the extraordinary use which is made nowadays of the word "orthodox" In former days the heretic was proud of not being a heretic. It was the kingdoms of the world and the police and the judges who were heretics"--Page [4] of cover. This 1905 collection of articles focuses on the era's "heretics": those who pride themselves in their superiority to conservative views. G.K. Chesterton's companion book to Orthodoxy assesses avant-garde artists and writers (including Kipling, Shaw, Wells, and Whistler) with the author's characteristic wisdom and good humor

Twelve short stories which include THE PARADISE OF THIEVES, where in Tuscany, a banker and his daughter seem to be in great danger as they plan to travel mountain roads where brigands are rumoured to attack. Going the same way is an armed, flamboyant poet called Muscari, and Father Brown, who is there when trouble does, indeed, occur. Then, Father Brown is involved in the theatrical world in THE MAN IN THE PASSAGE. A beautiful actress has rival admirers, but when she is stabbed to death, he solves the mystery of who murdered her and how the deed was done

Much loved for their wit and sense of wonder, these stories offer a fascinating portrait of upper-crust society in pre-World War I England"--Provided by publisher
