About this Item: NATIONAL TRUST, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A country retreat on a grand scale, Cliveden s magnificent gardens and breathtaking views have been admired for centuries. Since it was built high above the Thames in the second half of the 17th century, Cliveden has been a powerhouse - a place visited by royalty and the politically influential. Its first owner the Duke of Buckingham was brought up with the children of Charles I, and was instrumental in the restoration of Charles II. Lord Orkney, the next owner, and his wife, Elizabeth Villiers, a one-time mistress of William III, hosted both George I and George II at Cliveden, while their successors the Sutherland family, among the wealthiest in the land, were often at home to Queen Victoria. However it was during the tenure of Nancy and Waldorf Astor that Cliveden became the glamorous centre of political, literary and artistic society. Guest from David Lloyd George, Herbert Asquith, Anthony Eden, Winston Churchill and Neville Chamberlain to Sylvia Pankhurst, George Bernard Shaw, Henry Ford, Mahatma Gandhi, Amy Johnson and Charlie Chaplin were invited to enjoy the lavish hospitality of Charles Barry s architecture and the beauty of the gardens. A wider pubic became aware of Cliveden in 1963 when John Profumo, Secretary of State for War in the Macmillan government, met call-girl Christine Keeler by the swimming pool here, when he was a guest of the 3rd Lord Astor in 1961. Profumo s brief affair with Keeler, who was also involved with Soviet naval attache Evegeny Ivanov, raised fears about national security and he was forced to resign. The National Trust took over in 1966 and it is currently run as a hotel with a garden open to visitors. This guide contains details of the development of the garden and house, the history of the people who owned, visited and lived there, a fold-out bird s-eye map and timeline, walks and highlights of the gardens and magnificent classical sculpture collection.

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A Night in a Moorish Harem is an erotic novella written by Lord George Herbert at some time around 1900. It recounts a night spent by a shipwrecked British sailor in a Moroccan harem with nine concubines of different nationalities. The harem topos is a typical example of the privileged location and also an example of Western literary orientalism. In December 1923, two New York booksellers, Maurice Inman and Max Gottschalk, were arrested for selling A Night in a Moorish Harem and convicted in March 1924. However, by 1930, a prosecution in Chicago for selling the book failed, as did another in New York in 1931. Seller Inventory # APC9781500792053

About this Item: H. G. Wells Library, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Ugh-Lomi and the Cave Bear is a short story by H. G. Wells. It is presented as a parable and concerns the first meeting between the Great Bears, who are the Lords of the Rocks and Caves, and Man. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre, thanks to such novels as The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898). The Father of Science Fiction was also a staunch socialist, and his later works are increasingly political and didactic. Although never a winner, Wells was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature a total of four times. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. Seller Inventory # AAV9781473333680

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Charlotte Mason is known today as a British educationalist from the early 1900 s whose ideas and philosophies are currently being rediscovered by modern day home schools and private schools throughout the world. Many of Mason s modern readers may be unaware of her devout spiritual life and her deeply moving poetry. This is the second volume of a six-volume set of Mason s poetic writings on the life of Christ. This volume will appeal to Mason s current fans, to Christians of many persuasions, and to anyone who enjoys reading epic and/or religious poetry. SOME OPINIONS OF THE PRESS ON THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD VOL. II. HIS DOMINION These reviews/comments followed the original release of His Dominion in 1908. Miss Charlotte Mason has now given us the second instalment of her elaborate work in verse on The Saviour of the World. . . . Miss Mason renders into graceful and original verse part of the story of Christ as found in the Gospels. She seeks to cover each incident in His career, and each notable saying to which He gave utterance, in a single poem, the series to form a complete story. Her obvious sincerity and the high aim which is everywhere apparent make her pleasing verses singularly attractive. She is reverent throughout and always dignified. -Dundee Advertiser Miss Mason has much of the subtle skill of Browning, and her effusions breathe everywhere a spirit of deep devotion to The Saviour of Mankind. -Catholic Times Miss Mason s gracefully versified tractate in Christian theology-for that is what the poem is-should be read without weariness by the devout . . . On its literary side the book will readily evoke the admiration and sympathy of readers who like to have familiar lessons of Christianity refreshed by good workmanship in metrical art. -Scotsman The first volume met with a very cordial reception, and now the talented authoress gives her second volume to the world. . . . The authoress employs the choicest language, and shows great skill in versification. The whole work, in fact, aims at giving the whole of the Gospel story in verse-not a small task, by any means, but one for which Miss Mason seems to be specially endowed. -Western Mail Miss Mason here continues what she modestly describes as a paraphrase in verse of the Gospel story. As the writer aptly remarks, such a theme as this, in its sacred utterances and dramatic situations, finds a better medium of presentation in poetry than in prose. The first stage or act of the inspired narrative, The Holy Infancy, being completed, Miss Mason passes on to the Ministry of Our Lord at its commencement and first teaching (Sermon on the Mount and earlier parables), and first miracles . . . the sequence of the work is marked no less by the skill of the author than by the reverent spirit in which it is composed. Echoes of George Herbert and of Isaac Williams are to be caught here and there in the various pieces, as. E.g. where paraphrasing a passage in the Sermon on the Mount, Miss Mason writes: - Nay, keep thy soul at eve, Nor e er perceive The heavy odour of an unchaste thought. It would be difficult to express better the atmosphere of the new Paradise regained by Christ in place of that which was lost. -Bookseller The same careful, reverent handling of holy things characterises this new volume, which, like the former, is a paraphrase, in blank verse chiefly, of the Gospel narrative. -Guard.

The first stage or act of the inspired narrative, The Holy Infancy, being completed, Miss Mason passes on to the Ministry of Our Lord at its commencement and first teaching (Sermon on the Mount and earlier parables), and first miracles . . . the sequence of the work is marked no less by the skill of the author than by the reverent spirit in which it is composed. Echoes of George Herbert and of Isaac Williams are to be caught here and there in the various pieces, as. E.g. where paraphrasing a passage in the Sermon on the Mount, Miss Mason writes: - Nay, keep thy soul at eve, Nor e er perceive The heavy odour of an unchaste thought. It would be difficult to express better the atmosphere of the new Paradise regained by Christ in place of that which was lost. -Bookseller The same careful, reverent handling of holy things characterises this new volume, which, like the former, is a paraphrase, in blank verse chiefly, of the Gospel narrative. -Guard.
