Obsahy: Taking the measure of it all --
The construction of the pigeon-holes --
The general officer commanding --
Battling with the undertow --
Pushing through the untrodden forest --
So heavily goes the chariot --
The hermit and the murderer--and Hereward Thimbleby Price --
From take to turn-down--and then, triumphal valediction.
Odpovědnost: Simon Winchester.
