The stones of Venice by John Ruskin( Book )

in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Treatise on architecture by John Ruskin. It was published in three volumes in 1851-53. Ruskin wrote the work in order to apply to the architecture of Venice the general principles enunciated in his The Seven Lamps of Architecture. Volume I, The Foundations, discusses architecture and its functional and ornamental aspects and presents a brief history of Venice. In Volume II, The Sea Stories, Ruskin discusses the Byzantine period and the climactic development of Venetian life, its Gothic period. In Volume III, The Fall, Ruskin puts forth his thesis that the onset of the Renaissance caused the city's architectural decline. Ruskin contended that Gothic architecture expressed "a state of pure national faith, and h domestic virtue" while Renaissance architecture expressed "concealed national infidelity, and h domestic corruption."--The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

Scott's last expedition : in two volumes ... by Robert Falcon Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 1913 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HISTORY. The final letters and diary entries of Robert Falcon Scott - written in his last days, while hopelessly trapped in a tiny tent by a raging blizzard on the Great Ice Barrier - are among the most poignant and haunting passages ever penned. 'Had we lived, ' he wrote, 'I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance, and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman.' Scott's diaries, discovered with his body the next spring and then used as the essence of the book Scott's Last Expedition, caught the public imagination in a way few tales of exploration ever have. The account of Scott's second Antarctic expedition describes the near-disastrous voyage south, the dangers and beauties of the long, dark winter, and the brutal hardships of the trek to the South Pole

A life of William Shakespeare by Sidney Lee( Book )

3 editions published between 1898 and 1899 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Sidney Lee (1859-1926) was a lifelong scholar and enthusiast of Shakespeare, but is also remembered as the 'sub-editor' recruited by Sir Leslie Stephen when he was embarking on the great project of the Dictionary of National Biography, and whose editorial and organisational skills were vital in keeping the publication programme close to its planned schedule. Lee was acknowledged as joint Editor with Stephen of Volume 21, and as sole Editor for Volumes 27 to 63. His own contributions included an account of the life of Queen Victoria and (in Volume 51, 1897) William Shakespeare. This full-length life followed in 1898 and is often credited as the first modern biography of the poet. It was an immediate popular success, and, given the limitations of the material available at the time of writing, was regarded for much of the twentieth century as the most reliable account of Shakespeare's life
