Synopsis: Mark Twain once famously said "there was but one solitary thing about the past worth remembering, and that was the fact that it is past and can't be restored." Well, over recent years, The British Library, working with Microsoft has embarked on an ambitious programme to digitise its collection of 19th century books.
There are now 65,000 titles available (that's an incredible 25 million pages) of material ranging from works by famous names such as Dickens, Trollope and Hardy as well as many forgotten literary gems , all of which can now be printed on demand and purchased right here on Amazon.
Further information on The British Library and its digitisation programme can be found on The British Library website.
About the Author:
Hector Lewis Garrard (alias Lewis H. Garrard) returned in the summer of 1847 to his home in Cincinnati, where he studied medicine and perhaps law. One of the early settlers of southeastern Minnesota and a man of civic consequence, he finally went back to Cincinnati, where he died at the age of fifty-eight.
A. B. Guthrie, JR., Reporter, editor, and teacher, author of The Big Sky and The Way West, and winner of the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Fiction, A. B. GUTHRIE, JR., needs no introduction to American readers. His enthusiasm for Garrard's book sets the reader on his way in full possession of the background.
