Cleopatra by Joseph L Mankiewicz( Visual )

The epic saga of legendary Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt, and her attempt to stabilize her power and gain control of the Roman Empire. When Caesar visits Egypt, Cleopatra gains control by ousting her brother with his help. She marries Caesar, and bears him the son fate had previously denied him. Joining him in Rome--to ensure that the boy takes his rightful place after his father--her plans are thwarted when Caesar is assassinated and she must flee. Years later Marc Antony, proconsul of the eastern half of the empire, seeks an alliance with Egypt to impede Octavian's quest to become Emperor. Cleopatra and Antony become lovers and form a military alliance, but are forced to retreat after losing a major naval battle at Actium. Avoiding capture and disgrace, they take their own lives

The quest for Charles Rennie Mackintosh by John Cairney( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Rennie Mackintosh is established in the Scottish iconography as an architect of originality, a designer of genius and a painter of exceptional quality. He is, however, an enigma as a man." "This Victorian Glaswegian made his way through the art scene at the end of the nineteenth century to become a famous figure in his own time and a legend today. He managed to annoy, offend and enrage the architectural establishment of his day to such an extent that he turned his back on his own city and went willingly into exile to England, and finally to France." "In all of this, he was unfailingly supported by a fellow-artist and co-worker, Margaret Macdonald. Their love story through challenging times is one of the great sagas of art history." "This is the life of an ordinary Glasgow man with extraordinary talent, a great love story with personal complications, professional conflicts, triumphs and disasters, and an engulfing tragic ending."--BOOK JACKET

Immortal memories : a compilation of toasts to the immortal memory of Robert Burns as delivered at Burns suppers around the world, together with other orations, verses and addresses, 1801-2001 by John Cairney( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The Immortal Memory" remains the centrepiece of the traditional Burns Supper and although that rite might be seen by some to have had its day, the "Immortal Memory" itself still retains its importance and prestige to Burns lovers all over the world. It is an honour to be invited to present this toast and it is to honour this status and to further respect its subject that Dr Cairney's third book on Burns is devoted to his "Immortal Memory". The extraordinary thing is that the contributors, while dealing with the same man, all appear to see him so differently, but what they all still have in common is a love and admiration for the man and his work. This is the factor that makes Burns unique, that he has the same appeal for so many different kinds of people"--Publisher
Flashback forward by John Cairney( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tam Cochrane is a sickly lad, confined to his bed in Glasgow in the 1880s. His only experience of adventure and the outside world is through books - that is until his father decides to sell up and head for New Zealand. As they take the four-month journey by ship, Tam's health begins to improve, and with it signs of a new Tam, fully engaging in the real world. After arriving in their new country, the family heads to Rotorua and Tarawera, only to be caught in the volcanic eruption of 1886. Having been concussed, Tam wakes up, groggy but still the fit young man he'd been growing into, except he finds he is in Napier, emerging from the ruins of the 1931 earthquake. What has happened to the last 45 years? Why is he still a young man? And who is the other Tam Cochrane, now living like a recluse back in Glasgow?
