About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe is the third novel by George Eliot, published in 1861. An outwardly simple tale of a linen weaver, it is notable for its strong realism and its sophisticated treatment of a variety of issues ranging from religion to industrialisation to community.The novel is set in the early years of the 19th century. Silas Marner, a weaver, is a member of a small Calvinist congregation in Lantern Yard, a slum street in an unnamed city in Northern England. He is falsely accused of stealing the congregation s funds while watching over the very ill deacon. Two clues are given against Silas: a pocket knife, and the discovery in his own house of the bag formerly containing the money. There is the strong suggestion that Silas best friend, William Dane, has framed him, since Silas had lent his pocket knife to William shortly before the crime was committed. Silas is proclaimed guilty. The woman Silas was to marry breaks their engagement and later marries William. With his life shattered and his heart broken, Silas leaves Lantern Yard and the city. Marner travels south to the Midlands and settles near the rural village of Raveloe, where he lives alone, choosing to have only minimal contact with the residents. He comes to adore the gold he earns and hoards from his weaving. The gold is stolen by Dunstan ( Dunsey ) Cass, a dissolute younger son of Squire Cass, the town s leading landowner. Silas sinks into a deep gloom, despite the villagers attempts to aid him. Dunsey disappears, but little is made of this not unusual behaviour, and no association is made between him and the theft. Godfrey Cass, Dunsey s elder brother, also harbours a secret. He is married to, but estranged from, Molly Farren, an opium-addicted woman of low birth living in another town. This secret prevents Godfrey from marrying Nancy Lammeter, a young woman of high social and moral standing. On a winter s night, Molly tries to make her way to Squire Cass s New Year s Eve party with her two-year-old girl to announce that she is Godfrey s wife and ruin him. On the way, she takes opium and lies down in the snow. The child wanders away and into Silas house. Silas follows her tracks in the snow and discovers the woman dead. When he goes to the party for help, Godfrey heads to the scene, but resolves to tell no one that Molly was his wife. Molly s death conveniently puts an end to the marriage. Silas keeps the child and names her Eppie, after his deceased mother and sister, both named Hephzibah. Eppie changes Silas life completely. Silas has been robbed of his material gold, but has it returned to him symbolically in the form of the golden-haired child. Godfrey Cass is now free to marry Nancy, but continues to conceal the fact of his previous marriage-and child-from her. However, he aids Marner in caring for Eppie with occasional financial gifts. More practical help and support in bringing up the child is provided by Dolly Winthrop, a kindly neighbour of Marner s. Dolly s help and advice assist Marner not only in bringing up Eppie, but also in integrating her into village society.Hugh Thomson (1 June 1860 - 7 May 1920) was an Irish Illustrator born at Coleraine near Derry.Mary Ann Evans, English novelist, wrote under this pseudonym. She is the author of seven novels, including Adam Bede (1859), The Mill on the Floss (1860), Silas Marner (1861), Middlemarch (1871-72), and Daniel Deronda (1876), most of them set in provincial England and known for their realism and psychological insight.

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A march on London, being a story of Wat Tyler s insurrection. With eight illus. by W.H. Margetson, By: G.A.Henty George Alfred Henty (8 December 1832 - 16 November 1902) was a prolific English novelist and war correspondent.He is best known for his historical adventure stories that were popular in the late 19th century. His works include The Dragon The Raven (1886), For The Temple (1888), Under Drake s Flag (1883) and In Freedom s Cause (1885).Biography--G.A.Henty was born in Trumpington, near Cambridge. He was a sickly child who had to spend long periods in bed. During his frequent illnesses he became an avid reader and developed a wide range of interests which he carried into adulthood. He attended Westminster School, London, and later Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he was a keen sportsman. He left the university early without completing his degree to volunteer for the Army Hospital Commissariat when the Crimean War began. He was sent to the Crimea and while there he witnessed the appalling conditions under which the British soldier had to fight. His letters home were filled with vivid descriptions of what he saw. His father was impressed by his letters and sent them to The Morning Advertiser newspaper which printed them. This initial writing success was a factor in Henty s later decision to accept the offer to become a special correspondent, the early name for journalists now better known as war correspondents. William Henry Margetson (Londen, 1860 - Wallingford, 2 januari 1940) was een Engels kunstschilder en illustrator, vooral bekend om zijn esthetische portretten van vrouwen.Leven en werk Margetson studeerde aan het Dulwich College, en vervolgens aan de South Kensington Schools en de Royal Academy Schools. In 1885 exposeerde hij ook voor het eerst bij de Royal Academy, en later ook bij de Royal Society of British Artists, het Royal Institute of Oil Painters en de Grosvenor Gallery. In 1909 werd hij lid van het Royal Institute. Margetson schilderde in olie en in waterverf. Hij maakte vooral naam als portrettist van mooie vrouwen, vaak met modern aandoende korte kapsels en hoeden. Ook maakte hij religieuze en allegorische werken. Aanvankelijk werkte bij in een academische, Victoriaans stijl. Later hanteerde hij een meer losse penseelvoering, beinvloed door het post-impressionisme en de prerafaelieten, meer in het bijzonder door Laurens Alma-Tadema. Zijn meest succesvolle werk is het klassiek-decoratieve The Sea Hath its Pearls, waarmee hij in 1897 exposeerde bij de Royal Academy, thans in het bezit van de Art Gallery of New South Wales , Australie. Een door Margetson geschilderd portret van Alfred Tennyson hangt in de National Portrait Gallery te Londen. Margetson werkte ook veel als boekillustrator. Hij was gehuwd met kunstenares Helen Hatton, die hij had leren kennen tijdens een gezamenlijke illustratieopdracht. Hij woonde en werkte eerst in Londen en later in Blewbury en Wallingford. Hij overleed in 1940, 79 jaar oud. Seller Inventory # APC9781537436845
