About this Item: Fordham University Press, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What are the relationships between the books we read and the communities we share? Common Things explores how transatlantic romance revivals of the eighteenth and nineteenth century influenced-and were influenced by-emerging modern systems of community. Drawing on the work of Washington Irving, Henry Mackenzie, Thomas Jefferson, James Fenimore Cooper, Robert Montgomery Bird, and Charles Brockden Brown, the book shows how romance promotes a distinctive aesthetics of belonging-a mode of being in common tied to new qualities of the singular. Each chapter focuses on one of these common things-the stain of race, the property of personhood, ruined feelings, the genre of a text, and the event of history-and examines how these peculiar qualities work to sustain the coherence of our modern common places. In the work of Horace Walpole and Edgar Allan Poe, the book further uncovers an important- and never more timely-alternative aesthetic practice that reimagines community as an open and fugitive process rather than as a collection of common things.

The early days of Saint Lawrence County in the State of New York, and its various towns and townships, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this NEW 18 Page Booklet, reprinted primarily from two hard-to-find books: the 1841 edition of Historical Collections of the State of New York by John Warner Barber and Henry Howe, and New York, a Guide to the Empire State, a WPA project. The spiral-bound booklet is photocopied one-sided on 60# paper, with the print enlarged for easier reading. A clear vinyl sheet has been added to protect the front cover.

There's also a small map of the area from a 1948 booklet printed by the New York Telephone Company. Seller Inventory # 000113

About this Item: Allen & Unwin. Condition: Very Good. 1968. First Edition. Hardcover. Allen & Unwin, 1968; 1st edn. with paper dust cover, spine color slightly faded but text perfect; dark brown cloth with intaglio decoration, in mint condition; 248pp with index, 27 plates, some line illustrations in text. This graphic, illustrated survey of the year 1900 recaptures the major events of the last Victorian year, the end of a century, the passing of a way of life. It is not concerned with the Edwardian age, but with the great Queen's last year and the events leading up to it. 1900 marked the close of a period of astonishing discovery and achievement, and when the Queen died in 1901, people felt that nothing would ever be the same again. In South Africa the British armies were righting an irregular force of Boer farmers, but, in spite of the relief of Mafeking and Ladysmith and the triumphant return of Lord Roberts from the front, victory was still a long way off. The year was one of international import. In the United States, President McKinley was leading an expansionist policy; in Brussels a boy tried to kill the Prince of Wales; in Ireland the Queen reviewed her troops; in Germany the first Zeppelin rose in the skies. It was a lively, vulgar age. Art nouveau was in fashion, the music hall artists were in their prime, and Sir Henry Irving, the first actor to be knighted, was the great man of the stage. The first motor cars were chugging along the dusty roads of Europe, and the Wright brothers were at work on their gliding experiments. In an age when the cinematograph and the bioscope were influencing the lives of the public, there were still great contrasts. As Disraeli observed, there were two nations in England?one rich, one poor. 8¾x5¾". . . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland. Seller Inventory # KEB0001625
