The private journal of Captain G.F. Lyon of H.M.S. Hecla : during the recent voyage of discovery under Captain Parry, 1821-1823 by G. F Lyon ( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a vivid account of Arctic exploration in its most classical period. The journal clearly demonstrates the observant, warm-hearted personality of its chronicler, an officer of the Royal Navy, a man of sensibility and courage. Its accurate descriptions and thoughtful understanding of the Eskimo people make it almost unique as an early nineteenth-century document. George Francis Lyon appeared in the Arctic in the 1820's at the very height of the feverish quest for the Northwest Passage to the Orient. For over two centuries before Lyon's first journey in the Arctic on board the Hecla, more than two score of European ships with their daring crews had set out to discover a northern trade route to China. All had been lost or driven back by the power of the moving ice. The expedition of the Fury and Hecla from 1821-1823 was yet another venture that failed to navigate the narrow ice-choked passage to the western sea, but the observations of both Perry and Lyon, the leaders of the expedition, made considerable additions to the geographical and scientific knowledge of the eastern and central Arctic. -- from Introduction

The physiology of taste, or, Transcendental gastronomy by Brillat-Savarin ( Book )
1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Perhaps the most influential food writer of his day, Jean Anthelme Brillat- Savarin's gastronomic essays are founding documents in the food-writing genre. This great classic of gastronomy is a witty and authoritative compendium on the art of dining, and it has never been out of print since first publication in 1825. The philosophy of Epicurus stands behind every page, and the simplest meal satisfied Brillat-Savarin, as long as it was executed with artistry. The sometimes wordy text is filled with aphorisms and axioms, and it has been endlessly analyzed and quoted. Brillat- Savarin expounds on the delights of eating, which he considers a science, with witty anecdotes and observations
The age of fable; or, Stories of gods and heroes by Thomas Bulfinch ( Book )
1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The basic work on classical mythology
A week on the Concord and Merrimack rivers ; Walden, or, Life in the woods ; The Maine woods ; Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau ( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henry David Thoreau wrote four full-length works, collected here in a single volume. Interweaving natural observation, personal experience, and historical lore, they reveal his brilliance not only as a writer, but as a naturalist, scholar, historian, poet, and philosopher. "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers" is based on a boat trip taken with his brother from Concord, Massachusetts to Concord, New Hampshire. "Walden" is at once a personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, manual of self-reliance, and masterpiece of style. "The Maine Woods" and "Cape Cod" portray landscapes changing irreversibly even as he wrote. The first combines close observation of the unexplored Maine wilderness with a far-sighted plea for conservation; the second is a brilliant and unsentimental account of survival on a barren peninsula in the face of hostile elements, historical change, and natural decay
The art of love by Ovid ( Book )
1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the first century a.d., Ovid, author of the groundbreaking epic poem Metamorphoses, came under severe criticism for The Art of Love, which playfully instructed women in the art of seduction and men in the skills essential for mastering the art of romantic conquest. In this remarkable translation, James Michie breathes new life into the notorious Roman's mock-didactic elegy. In lyrical, irreverent English, he reveals love's timeless dilemmas and Ovid's enduring brilliance as both poet and cultural critic. From the Trade Paperback edition

Odes and epodes by Horace ( Book )
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The poetry of Horace (born 65 BC) is richly varied, its focus moving between public and private concerns, urban and rural settings, Stoic and Epicurean thought. This new Loeb Classical Library edition of the great Roman poet's Odes and Epodes boasts a faithful and fluid translation and reflects current scholarship." "Horace took pride in being the first Roman to write a body of lyric poetry. For models he turned to Greek lyric, especially to the poetry of Alcaeus, Sappho, and Pindar; but his poems are set in a Roman context. His four books of odes cover a wide range of moods and topics. Some are public poems, upholding the traditional values of courage, loyalty, and piety; and there are hymns to gods. But most of the odes are on private themes: chiding or advising friends; speaking about love and amorous situations, often amusingly. Horace's seventeen epodes, which he called iambi, were also an innovation for Roman literature. Like the odes they were inspired by a Greek model: the seventh century iambic poetry of Archilochus. Love and political concerns are frequent themes; the tone is only occasionally aggressive. "In his language he is triumphantly adventurous," Quintilian said of Horace; Niall Rudd's new translation reflects his different voices."--BOOK JACKET
