Gilbert Keith Chesterton by Maisie Ward( Book )

Maisie Ward's biography of Gilbert Keith Chesterton has long been a cornerstone in Chesterton studies, as well as in the publishing house she and her husband, Frank Sheed, founded in 1926. Originally published in 1942, just six years after Chesterton's untimely death, this book combines Ward's unique perspective as the author's friend and publisher with an examination of his personal correspondence and interviews with his closest friends and family. Here are Chesterton's childhood and school days, the friendship and foolery of youth, his early theological development, high spirited love letter

The coloured lands by G. K Chesterton( Book )
4 editions published in 1938 in English and held by 549 libraries worldwide
Enter into one of the twentieth century's liveliest and most articulate minds with this long-unavailable book of delights. This jolly medley of drawings, fables, and poetry⁰́₄all laced with satirical wit⁰́₄abounds in G. K. Chesterton's unique combination of whimsy and profundity. Its satirical ballads and original fairy tales include early works and previously unpublished material, all illustrated by the author's distinctive color and black-and-white illustrations.Chesterton's fantasies reflect his overall philosophy of life, proclaiming the need for wonder in the face of the world of fact. His view of reality penetrates to the roots of these fruitful fantasies, which simultaneously hide and reveal truth: "The Disadvantage of Having Two Heads," a cautionary tale about a young giant-killer; "The Wild Goose Chase," a search for the elusive goals that make life worth living; and "Half-Hours in Hades," an amusing handbook of demonology. Colorfully illustrated poems include "Stilton and Milton," a witty meditation on the relative appeal and durability of cheese and literature. A perfect introduction for readers unacquainted with Chesterton as well as a treat for long-time aficionados, this new edition features an Afterword by Martin Gardner, a leading authority on the author

Saints who made history: the first five centuries by Maisie Ward( Book )
7 editions published between 1959 and 1960 in English and Undetermined and held by 423 libraries worldwide
In these men who were formative influences upon the mind and the structure of the Church we see intellect and holiness united. Yet the saints fell in Adam as we did, and for many of them sanctity meant a fearful struggle, with holiness achieved only near the end. This is the essential drama of these lives which we see magnified against the background of the developing Church, ranging from the first age, in which Ignatius and Polycarp embodied the idea of martyrdom, to the last days of the Roman Empire in the West, with Pope Leo the Great at the centre and St. Patrick at the outermost edge of the Christian world
