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 )
2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 231 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

"They are an unlikely pair: George is "small and quick and dark of face"; Lennie, a man of tremendous size, has the mind of a young child. Yet they have formed a "family," clinging together in the face of lonelinss and alienation. Laborers in California's dusty vegetable fields, they hustle work when they can, living a hand-to-mouth existence. For George and Lennie have a plan: to own an acre of land and a shack they can call their own. When they land jobs on a ranch in the Salinas Valley, the fulfillment of their dream seems to be within their grasp. But even George cannot guard Lennie from the provocations of a flirtatious woman, nor predict the consequences of Lennie's unswerving obedience to the things George taught him"--

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 151 libraries worldwide
"The Orestia--Agamemnon, Choephori, and The Eumenides--depicts the downfall of the house of Atreus: after King Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, their son, Orestes, is commanded by Apollo to avenge the crime by killing his mother, and he does so, bringing on himself the wrath of the Furies and the judgment of Athens. Together, the three plays are one of the major achievements of Greek antiquity. Hughes's 'acting version' of the trilogy is itself a great performance; while artfully inflected with the contemporary, it has a classical beauty and authority"--Jacket

The invisible man by H. G Wells( Book )
1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
The Invisible Man is a science fiction cllassic. To its author, H.G. Wells, the novel was as compelling as "a good gripping dream." But to generations of readers, the terrible and evil experiment of the demented scientist, Griffin, has conveyed a chilling nightmare of believable horror. An atmosphere of ever increasing suspense begins with the arrival of a mysterious stranger at an English village inn and builds relentlessly to the stark terror of a victim pursued by a maniacal invisible man
Lysis or, Friendship. The symposium. Phaedrus by Plato( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
It is logical to group together the three dialogues of the present volume -- the Lysis, the Symposium, and the Phaedrus. In the first place, these three works contain in essence virtually all that Plato had to say on the subject of love and friendship. Secondly, the Lysis and certain parts of the other two works will show the Platonic dialectic in action. Further, the Symposium and Phaedrus are so replete with meaning that repeated readings are necessary in order to approach anything like a full grasp of their contents. In particular, they indicate what Plato conceived the nature of the human soul to be. We find him arguing that it is an entity which is immortal and at the same time has deep involvements in the world of space and time. - Preface
Billy Budd : and, Beníto Cereno by Herman Melville( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
A harrowing tale of slavery and revolt
Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres by Henry Adams( Book )
2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 138 libraries worldwide
From the Back Cover: Mont Saint Michel and Chartres is a record not of a literal journey but of a meditative journey across time and space into the medieval imagination. Using the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the two locales as a starting point, Adams breathes life into what others might see merely as monuments of a past civilization. With daring and inventive conceits, Adams looks at the ordinary people, places, and events in the context of the social conventions and systems of thought and belief of the thirteenth century, turning the study of history into a kind of theater. As Raymond Carney discusses in his introduction, Adam's freedom from the European traditions of study lends exuberance-and puckish wit-to his writings
Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant( Book )
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
George Duroy, a naive provincial determined to succeed in the Paris of the Third Republic, learns that the exploitation of women and sex attains quicker results than mere talent and hard work

The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )
1 edition published in 1930 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
"In the summer of 1348, with the plague ravaging Florence, ten young men and women take refuge in the countryside, where they entertain themselves with tales of love, death, and corruption, featuring a host of characters, from lascivious clergymen and mad kings to devious lovers and false miracle-makers. Named after the Greek for "ten days," Boccaccio's book of stories draws on ancient mythology, contemporary history, and everyday life, and has influenced the work of myriad writers who came after him. J.G. Nichols's new translation, faithful to the original but rendered in eminently readable modern English, captures the timeless humor of one of the great classics of European literature. A brilliant new translation of the work that Herman Hesse called 'the first great masterpiece of European storytelling.'"--Publisher's website
