History of England, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Excerpt from History of England, Vol. 1: From the Fall of Wolsey to the Death of Elizabeth Froude once said that his account of the Armada should be as interesting as a novel, and there is no doubt that he approached the reign of Elizabeth with the intention of making "our glorious semper eadem" the heroine of the stirring romance. He begins by quoting a contemporary description of the state of the country at the queen's accession: "The queen poor, the realm exhausted, the nobility poor and decayed; good captains and soldiers wanting; the people out of order; justice not executed; all things dear, division among ourselves; war with France; the French king bestriding the realm, having one foot in Calais and the other in Scotland, steadfast enemies, but no steadfast friends." The queen, with a disputed title, was forced by the circumstances of her birth to identify herself with the revolt against the Papacy. Her personal inclinations, her philosophical temperament, and her dislike of extremes rendered her averse to the religious and political views of the Protestants. Mary Stuart in France quartered the royal arms of England on her shield, Philip, before he became actively hostile, tried to treat England as a vassal of Spam. Elizabeth faced the situation with regal spirit. She repulsed the advances of Philip, and insisted that England was strong enough to stand alone. She was determined to expel the French from Scotland and from Calais, and as a child of the Reformation she was fixed in her opposition to the pretensions of the Bishop of Rome The subtle De Quadra, Philip's first ambassador at her court, was aghast at "the spirit of the woman" His polite conclusion was that "she is possessed of the Devil, who is dragging her to his own place." The good bishop was an astute and experienced diplomat. He knew the power of Spain, the strength of her armies, the magnitude of her fleet, the untold riches of her American dominions. He could not understand how Elizabeth, with a rebellious Ireland and a hostile Scotland at her back, could hope to stand up against Philip. "She is possessed with a false opinion of her own resources, from which she will never awake till she is ruined."

Excerpt from A Popular History of England, Vol. 4: From the Earliest Times to the Reign of Queen Victoria King James had abandoned England, fleeing from the storm which he had raised, obstinate in his ideas and holding persistently to the hope of a return, which his people was resolved to prevent at any price. William of Orange had entered London; but he had not established his quarters at Whitehall, and he refused to take tlie crown by right of conquest Shrewd and farseeing, he did not wish to belie the promises of his declaration, or, by parading its defeat, to irritate the English army, which he hoped soon to command. He had not conquered England, which had called him to her aid and had voluntarily submitted to him; and he desired to keep the supreme power with her free consent. A provisory assembly was formed of those lords who were in London, as well as of members of the House of Commons who had sat in Parliament under the reign of King Charles II.; and the aldermen of London and a deputation of the City Council were invited to participate in the proceedings.

History of the Demonetization of Silver (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A History of the Demonetization of Silver It is singular that with one recent exception every step taken in Europe and America looking to the demonetization of silver has been prompted by the fact that the market price was higher than the mint price of the silver bullion - in other words, by the difficulty of keeping the silver coin in circulation when the temptation was great to send it to the melting-pot or to clip and deface it. Silver, prior to the Conquest, and for centuries afterwards, was the sole money standard of England. Gold was gradually introduced. The money of account was pounds, shillings, pence and farthings; but only shillings, pence and farthings were coined. The pound troy was originally the pound sterling, but it underwent various reductions until, by the forty-third of Queen Elizabeth, the pound troy was divided into 62 shillings, thus reducing the shilling to less than one-third of its original value. It has remained at this value ever since. Prior to the reign of Edward Third silver was the exclusive legal-tender. Its proportionate value to gold was far higher than at present. From the middle of the eleventh to near the middle of the sixteenth century the relative values of gold and silver were as 1 to 12 1/2, and sometimes down or up to 1 to 10 1/2. But these proportions differed slightly in different countries. There was a gradual rise in the value of gold in Europe from this time forward for some years, and so early as the year 1665 it touched the point of 1 to 15.10. Since the latter date, and up to the epoch of demonetization in the United States and Germany, the variation in the values of the two metals has never, except on two occasions, amounted to one ounce of silver. The exceptions are, that in the year 1751, silver rose to 14.15, but fell back the next year to 14.54, and thirty years later it rose to 14.42, but fell back immediately to 14.54. In 1789 gold was to, silver as 1 to 14.75, and the next year it stood at 15.04. From that date to 1872 the variations never exceeded half an ounce. Dr. Kelley, author of the "Universal Cambist," states that for many years prior to the year 1816, when the British Parliament demonetized silver, "the supply of silver currency was very irregular, and the coins, however correctly minted, soon became greatly deteriorated, insomuch that in the year 1774, they were declared to be no longer a legal-tender for more than Ł25, although they had been previously unlimited in this respect." This statement refers to the worn or clipped silver coins. Silver of full weight still remained a legal-tender.

Excerpt from History of the Variations of the Protestant Churches, Vol. 2 of 2: One of His Most Christian Majesty's Honorable Privy-Council, Heretofore Preceptor to the Dauphin, and Chief Almoner to the Dauphiness England having soon returned, after Queen Mary's death, to Edward the Sixth's Reformation, set about fixing her Faith and putting the finishing stroke to her religion by the new Queen's authority. Elizabeth, daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, was advanced to the throne, and governed her kingdom with as profound a policy as the most able kings. The step she had taken with regard to Rome, immediately upon her coming to the crown, countenanced what otherwise had been published of this princess, that she would not have departed from the Catholic religion, had she found the Pope more disposed to her interests.

Augustus Caesar, the first emperor of Rome (27 BC AD 14), brought peace and prosperity to his city after decades of savage civil war. This selection from Cassius Dio's Roman History gives the fullest description of that long struggle and ultimate triumph detailing the brutal battles and political feuds that led to the collapse of Rome's 400-year-old republic, and Augustus' subsequent reign as emperor. Included are accounts of military campaigns from Ethiopia to Yugoslavia, and of long conflict with Antony and Cleopatra. With skill and artistry, Dio brings to life many speeches from the era among them Augustus' damning indictment of Antony's passion for the Egyptian queen and provides a fascinating account of the debate between the great general Agrippa and Maecenas on the virtues of republicanism and monarchy.

Flotow: Martha Brilliant Classics

Nagrania muzyczneMuzyka poważna

Though its popularity has sadly diminished over the years, up to about the middle of the last century Martha was one of the most frequently performed operas on the German stage -- largely owing to the great tenor Enrico Caruso's acclaimed portrayal of Lyonel, a role which he repeated all over the world. The work is one of about 30 operas written by Friedrich von Flotow, and indeed it was through Martha that the German composer achieved lasting fame. Only a decade after its first performance, and Martha has already been performed as far afield as Algiers, San Francisco and Sydney.The seed of the opera can be found in the pastiche ballet Lady Harriette, whose Act 1 Flotow was commissioned by the Paris Opéra to write in 1844. Set in Richmond, England, during the reign of Queen Anne, the plot centres around Lady Harriet Durham who, tired of court life, decides to have some fun by visiting the local fair with her foppish cousin Lord Tristan and maid Nancy. Disguised as servant girls, both she and Nancy hire themselves off to the rich farmer Plumkett and his foster brother Lyonel (whose origins are unknown, the only vestige being a ring which his father left him and which he should present to the queen if ever he is in danger) -- only to be wooed by the two men, who have each fallen for the maid and her lady respectively. When the next day Queen Anne is out hunting with Lady Harriet and her court, a chance encounter with Lyonel sees him make claim to his 'maid', and he is subsequently arrested, having been declared insane by Harriet and Lord Tristan. But when his ring is brought to the queen, Harriet is told that he is in fact the son of the unjustly banished Early of Derby, and she rushes back to the farm to relay the news and to ask for Lyonel's hand in marriage. Lyonel at first angrily rejects her, but a replica of Richmond Fair sees the initial encounter between the four characters renewed, giving rise to jubilant celebrations.Made in Berlin in 1944 while Germany was still in a state of 'total war', this recording remains one of the most acclaimed interpretations of the opera. Comprising some of the best singers of that generation, it is astutely conducted by Johannes Schüler -- to whose credit the Staatsoper was able to rebuild its repertoire after 1945 -- and thus represents an invaluable addition to Brilliant Classics' ever-growing opera collection.Other information:- Historical recording of the grand German-Romantic opera Martha by Friedrich von Flotow, made in 1944 at the Funkhaus an der Masurenallee in Berlin.- One of the best ever recordings of this highly attractive opera, starring great German singers like Erna Berger, Else Tegetthoff and Peter Anders.- Sonics are surprisingly good (considering the circumstances), the booklet contains extensive liner notes on the music, the history of this particular performance and a synopsis.- Includes detailed notes on the music and production as well as a synopsis.
