Argonautica by Apollonius( Book )
125 editions published between 1906 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 1,545 libraries worldwide
Apollonius 'of Rhodes' was a Greek grammarian and epic poet of Alexandria in Egypt and lived late in the 3rd century and early in the 2nd century B.C. While still young he composed his extant epic poem of four books on the story of the Argonauts. When this work failed to win acceptance he went to Rhodes where he not only did well as a rhetorician but also made a success of his epic in a revised form, for which the Rhodians gave him the 'freedom' if their city; hence his surname. On returning to Alexandria he recited his poem again, with applause. In 196 Ptolemy Epiphanes made him the librarian of the Museum (the university) at Alexandria. His Argonautica is one of the better minor epics, remarkable for originality, powers of observation, sincere feeling, and depiction ow romantic love. His Jason and Medea are natural and interesting, and did much to inspire Virgil (in a very different setting) in the fourth book of the Aeneid. -- Jacket

Notes and reminiscences of a staff officer, chiefly relating to the Waterloo campaign and to St. Helena matters during the captivity of Napoleon by Basil Jackson( Book )
13 editions published between 1903 and 2011 in English and French and held by 115 libraries worldwide
This ebook is purpose built and is proof-read and re-type set from the original to provide an outstanding experience of reflowing text for an ebook reader. Although written many years after the events, Lt-Col Jackson's writing makes for much interesting reading. The text falls into three distinct parts; the first, the events of the Waterloo Campaign, the second, Jackson's experiences on St. Helena and his interactions with Napoleon's staff and his meeting of the Great Captain and thirdly his view of the works published or purportedly published about St Helena. The eyewitness account of a young staff officer on the Quartermaster-General's staff at Waterloo, whilst containing some errors perhaps due to memory lapses, makes for excellent reading and is an important memoir of that momentous campaign. His praise of the Duke of Wellington's actions during the battle itself are tempered with some criticism of his handling of the campaign as a whole, particularly his reaction to Napoleon's advance. Although avoiding the Anglocentric view of the critical Prussian intervention at Planchenoit, doesn't hesitate to condemn their pillage and attempts to make off with cannon captured by the Anglo-Dutch army. Following the occupation of Paris, during which he takes part in a number of dangerous incidents with a surly and angry populace, Jackson is ordered to St Helena as a part of the staff organisation. His interactions with Gourgaud, Montholon, Las Cases and Bertrand are of capital interest, and his estimation of Napoleon's character. During his brief interview with the prisoner himself, Napoleon "... alluding to two or three block-houses then in course of erection at the island, asked what Emmett expected to attack them, "est-ce les rais et les souris?" [is it the rays of the sun and the mice?] we were then dismissed." Jackson also defends his former chief, Sir Hudson Lowe against various slanderous attacks for his role as Governor of St Helena, for the majority of Napoleon's imprisonment. An interesting read
