Excerpt from The Reformed Mennonite Church: Its Rise and Progress, With Its Principles and Doctrines It is necessary to say much, by way of preface, to the following work, further than to give a short explanation of the motives which led to its undertaking. Knowing that but few readers would agree with me in sentiment, and that I have not the ability to produce a work which would bear criticism, as a literary production, together with the disadvantage of being much interrupted by other duties, has made the labor one of much anxiety, and caused it to be attended with many discouragements. The idea of such an undertaking never occurred to me, until it was suggested to me by others, to whose solicitations I was induced to accede. Much advantage would have accrued, if the work had been engaged in only a few years earlier. Those who organized the Church, with all their associates, have been gathered to their fathers, and of those who were intimate with them in life, few are remaining, and they fast passing away. The younger members of the Church, who have not had acquaintance with the circumstances which brought about the forming of themselves into church order by these reformers, naturally felt a desire to have-some reliable history of these events, so that after the departure of the few yet remaining who have knowledge of it, they would be able to refute any unfounded assertions or reports which might be originated. This desire seemed so reasonable, and I may say commendable, that I felt myself constrained to endeavor to gratify it to the extent of my ability.

Johann Christoph Blumhardt, Life and Work Wipf & Stock Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: Johann Christoph Blumhardt (1805-1880) was a pastoral counselor and theologian of hope. His theology and pastoral approach, shaped as they were by the awakening in his congregation and numerous incidents of faith healing, provoked earnest and lively debate, and the controversy continues today. Ising's work mines the original sources, the product of an interaction with Blumhardt's life and work that goes back many years. He has drawn a portrait that explores the shadows as well as its bright side. Readers are invited to enter fully into the nineteenth century, Blumhardt's century, yet are constantly reminded that the problems of that day have lost none of their currency within the altered mental horizons of today. Endorsements: ""This is the long expected, definitive biography of the Swabian Protestant Pastor Johann Christoph Blumhardt ... Ising shows that Blumhardt's legacy deserves more than nostalgic remembrance. It poses a genuine challenge to the perceptions and practices of Christian counseling, which is often highly professional but no longer dares to count on God's presence in the counseling process itself."" -Christoffer H. Grundmann author of Sent to Heal! Emergence and Development of Medical Missions ""Blumhardt's biography, from its earliest beginnings until his quiet death, has received magisterial treatment by Dieter Ising. The narrative is as judicious as it is vivid; this is so particularly with regard to Blumhardt's place within the framework of Pietism and the 'surplus' in addition to Pietism that he was able to find, the way he grew beyond his limitations."" -Paul Dieterich Prelate (ret.), Lutheran Church in Württemberg ""There is now available a wealth of biographical material which enables us, to a much greater degree than before, to illuminate Blumhardt's place in the history of the territorial churches and in contemporary church life. This has made possible the present biography, a model of its kind, in which Dieter Ising has been able to base his account on his comprehensive edition of Blumhardt's letters as well as on further previously unpublished materials."" -Gerhard Sauter author of Die Theologie des Reiches Gottes beim älteren und jüngeren Blumhardt ""Until recently, Blumhardt has appeared as a mysterious figure. This has now changed with Dieter Ising's clearly-written and thorough biography . . . The result is a vivid portrayal of a man set clearly in the context of his life and times and speaking to us today in ways that challenge our own ways of thinking. This biography must not be overlooked by anyone interested in contemporary theology or pastoral care, especially with the healing message so popular in the churches of the Southern Hemisphere. I enthusiastically recommend it."" -Frank D. Macchia author of Spirituality and Social Concern: The Message of the Blumhardts in the Light of Wuerttemberg Pietism About the Contributor(s): Dieter Ising wrote his doctoral thesis at Tübingen under the supervision of Jürgen Moltmann. His field of research is Württemberg church history and history of theology. In the Landeskirchliches Archiv Stuttgart he has edited the correspondence of Johann Christoph Blumhardt (7 volumes, 1993-2001) and is editing the correspondence of Johann Albrecht Bengel.

The potential of Paranosema (Nosema) locustae (Microsporidia: Nosematidae) and its combination with Metarhizium anisopliae var. acridum (Deuteromycoti Cuvillier Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Locusts and grasshoppers are the most treating agricultural pests that represent with drought the first reason of famine in Sahelian regions of Africa. Concern about environmental and toxicological issues resulting from wide spread application of synthetic pesticide has stimulated studies on the development of microbiological insecticides based on Microsporidian Paranosema locustae Canning and the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae var. acridum Driver and Milner. The main objectives of this study were to: (i) investigate the potential of P. locustae to control locusts and grasshoppers (Chapters 2 and 3) and (ii) the possibility of its combination with M. anisopliae to increase the efficacy of the two pathogens in regulation of locust and grasshopper populations in West Africa (chapters 4 and 5). The evaluation of the relative susceptibility of developmental stages of Oedaleus senegalensis and Schistocerca gregaria to different dosages of P. locustae indicated both lethal and sublethal effects of the pathogen against the hosts. Considering the lethal effects all tested nymphal stages suffered from significantly higher mortality compared to the control with always the younger nymphal instars being more susceptible compared to the older. Sublethal effects of P. locustae in the tested hosts included among other, delayed and abnormal development of the infected hosts, reduced host weight and vertical transmission of the pathogen from infected adults to the offspring. Laboratory investigation of the interaction of P. locustae and M. anisopliae indicated that additional inoculation with M. anisopliae following infection with P. locustae cause additive and synergistic mortality response of the two pathogens in fifth instar S. gregaria, resulting in both a significant reduction of Median Survival Time (MSTs) and a higher mortality in mixed infections compared to the single infection. Significantly fewer P. locustae spores were yielded in mixed infections compared to nymphs infected with P. locustae alone. However, M. anisopliae production was not affected by the mixed infections. Last but not least, based on the laboratory bioassay testing the relative susceptibility of grasshopper and locust developmental stages to P. locustae, a field trial was designed to target the younger instar of grasshopper. The results showed that within season grasshopper population reduction might be feasible when the pathogen is applied earlier after hatching. Moreover combined application of P. locustae and M. anisopliae under field condition confirmed that mixed application of the two pathogens could help to increase host population reduction in short time periods. In the light of the results from the laboratory bioassays testing different concentrations of P. locustae spores against different nymphal instars of O. senegalensis and S. gregaria, the effects of P. locustae on the two species can be classified as direct and indirect effects. The direct host mortality effect of P. locustae is greatly pathogen concentration dependent with younger instars being more susceptible than older instars. The longer Median Survival Time (MST) recorded in older nymphal developmental stage compared to the younger, confirms the high susceptibility of the latter. Almost 100% mortality can be reached in first and second instars in a maximum of 10 days while most fourth and fifth instar nymphs can survive P. locustae infection up to adulthood. Mortalities recorded when targeting the host at older stages remain low irrespective of the pathogen dosages. Although some of the results show a low susceptibility of the tested host to the pathogen (e.g., low concentrations against fifth instars, the indirect sublethal effect of the pathogen can be considered as an additional important factor that can contribute to overcome its low virulence. Younger instars infected at low P. locustae spore concentrations that did not die from the pathogen infection in most cases did not reach adulthood and remained small in their size with low weight. Moreover common malformations of wings and hind legs observed in infected nymphs that developed to adults could affect the population dynamics of grasshoppers and locusts since morphologically affected hosts are unlikely to move and fly as normal healthy ones. Only infected adults that have survived the pathogen infection were able to mate and produce eggs with very high potential to transmit P. locustae to the hatching nymphs. However the slow development of P. locustae infection remains one important limitation in the use of this pathogen since for the grower the first and probably the only objective is to kill the pest fast and with high efficacy to avoid resurgence of the pest and need for repeated treatments. Our laboratory study testing the host mortality response to the combination of P. locustae and M. anisopliae indicated that a combination of the two pathogens increased significantly host acute mortality with consistent reduction in host survival time. This is further supported by the fact that after inoculation of Paranosema-infested fifth instar nymphs, total mortality rates were recorded within 4 to 7 days in host infected at the highest concentrations of the two pathogens. However, although the two pathogens showed ability to develop in the same host, the production of P. locustae spores was significantly lowered in dual infection. A successful integration of the two control agents, i.e. P. locustae and M. anisopliae var. acridum, depends on the possibility to minimize direct and indirect detrimental effects on the relatively less virulent P. locustae. Application of P. locustae alone or in mixture with sugar or M. anisopliae resulted in significant grasshopper density reduction in three weeks, with up to 40% P. locustae infection in surviving grasshopper in plots that have received P. locustae spores, suggesting the possible persistence of the pathogens in the following generations. The general ability of M. anisopliae var. acridum and P. locustae to infect locusts and grasshoppers (Brooks, 1988; Henry, 1990; Langewald et al., 1999), the high relative humidity (leading to a >90%) and temperature (24-31 C) at the time of pathogen applications, which correspond with the optimum growth conditions for both pathogens (Ouedraogo et al., 1997; Hallsworth and Magan, 1999; Lowman et al., 2000) might have contributed to the high infection and density reduction recorded in the present experiment. Moreover, the relatively high predominance of younger instars of the Senegalese grasshopper, O. senegalensis (>76% were represented by first, second and third instar nymphs) expands the previous laboratory observations on the high virulence of P. locustae against young grasshopper and locust instars. The field trial confirmed the efficacy of combination of P. locustae and M. anisopliae for control of locust and grasshopper populations. Results obtained from this study suggest that P. locustae is of a value as long-term biological control agent of S. gregaria and O. senegalensis in West Africa. Although P. locustae does not cause conspicuous mortality as do the chemicals currently used, its increased developmental time, the decreased survival of the infected host, and the fact that infected nymphs are apparently unable to reach adulthood, would have an impact on the intrinsic rate of population increase, leading to lower population density levels in the long term. In our study we have observed that both O. senegalensis and S. gregaria readily consumed wheat bran the way in which P. locustae is delivered (Henry and Oma, 1981). In large sector of the locust and grasshopper outbreak area, ground cover is relatively poor, meaning that nymphs would easily locate baits. Pathogens used in the present study were derived from commercial products (M. anisopliae var. acridum from Green Muscle(r) IITA-Benin and P. locustae from M and R Durango, Inc. P. O. Box 886 Bayfield, CO 81122 USA). This suggests that microbial control of locusts and grasshoppers combining the two pathogens in bait could be readily implemented. Innovative products such as P. locustae and M. anisopliae formulations, however, are unlikely to be accepted unless they are easy to handle. The oil-based M. anisopliae formulation has proved to be easy to handle, involving a minimal amount of preparation before spraying, and thus helped to achieve an acceptably high work rate (Douro-Kpindou et al., 1995; Bateman et al., 1997; Johnson, 1997; Langewald et al., 1999; Lomer et al., 1999; Lomer et al., 2001). Interestingly, manual application of wheat bran formulation of P. locustae and M. anisopliae in the present study has proven to induce consistent pathogen infections in grasshopper populations in Sahel. Such method could be more appropriated for the Sahelian growers given the small handled quantity of bran (2kg) applied per hectare. Compared to the use of toxic pesticide that requires or need more protection or risk avoiding technique for application, the hand spreading method required little work and less experiment from the operator.

Annual Obituary Notices Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Annual Obituary Notices: Of Eminent Persons Who Have Died in the United States for 1858 I send forth this volume, the first of the proposed annual series, with much anxiety. Having examined the newspapers from all parts of the country, and gathered notices from them, and in most cases having been unable to obtain actual data from correspondence, I fear many errors in names, dates, residences, &c., may be found. There is constant liability to error in such notices in the transfers from one paper to others, as, for instance, in continuing the abbreviation "inst." after the month has passed, and in not keeping up the distinction of states, especially upon state borders. These notices are taken mostly from newspapers, and generally from papers in the vicinity of the deceased. In most cases I have shortened them without changing expressions of opinion; the language and even the idiomatic peculiarities I have preserved. I have obtained eulogies, sermons, and obituaries prepared by request; and I have sought information by sending more than seven hundred circulars to friends of deceased, asking for notices and facts. If, therefore, certain distinguished men appear with brief notices, my apology must be found in the fact that my circular was not attended to, and I had no means of obtaining a better one. It has been my great purpose to bring together the obituaries of the distinguished men of the whole country; but I have also introduced our distinguished women, and the widows and wives of our eminent and professional men. I have also gathered the names of many revolutionary soldiers, early settlers of towns, and aged people. In all these particulars my future volumes will be open to change, according to the character and necessities of the collections of each year, and the demands of public taste and judgment.

Excerpt from Subdued Southern Nobility: A Southern Ideal The publishers have requested me to write a preface to this little volume, and that, too, without assigning any valid reason for so doing. I must confess I see no necessity for one myself, only it may be well to ask my readers to be charitable in their criticisms. The ideal to which I ask the reader's attention begins before the recent unpleasantness between the North and South, continues during that gigantic struggle for national existence, and ends before a final reconstruction takes place. My readers are, therefore, brought face to face with some suppressed historic facts that will be found interesting in connection with the characters introduced. It has been my object from beginning to end to give facts rather than overdrawn fancies, and if I have failed to make the book as interesting as my readers may have expected, they have the assurance of having received "more truth than poetry" for their money.

Excerpt from The Tercentenary of William Shakespeare: An Eulogium Pronounced in St. James's Church, Chicago, Sunday, April 30, 1916 You will agree with me, Good Friends, that this Church, the oldest Church in the City of Chicago in communion with the Church at Stratford-on-Avon, where lie interred the remains of William Shakespeare, should have its part in the tercentenary of the death of the immortal poet. I confess that had it been possible I should have invited to address you the most accomplished Shakespearian scholar I could have obtained in our University, or, failing such, some one of the many learned lovers of the Master who are to be found easily in this city. And yet, after all, it may be well that a priest of the Communion to which the poet undoubtedly belonged should say what is to be said on this occasion. At the same time, it must be understood that I can tell you nothing new. As Mark Antony said of Julius Caesar, "I tell you that which you yourselves do know." I am myself only a disciple of those who have studied, and are the acknowledged exponents of, the Poet and of the vast literature which has grown up round him. There are many here who know more of him and of that literature than I do. I venture little more than to set myself in the multitude of those who admire and love the Man, who, beyond all other men, has enriched the worlds literature, and given lasting and unsullied glory to the race which speaks his language. Much less will any one question that it is most fitting that the Church should acknowledge the debt due by all who are interested in the welfare of society to the art and the profession which have for their purpose the delineation of human nature in all its phases.

Excerpt from A Levy on Capital A Book on a Levy on Capital is already overdue. The proposal is attracting widespread attention but is not yet fully understood. There is therefore urgent need of explanation. My purpose in writing has been twofold. In the first place, I have collected and arranged all the necessary data for an adequate discussion of the problems involved. In the second place, I have explained and defended the proposal itself. The first part therefore deals with facts and the second with opinions. I have been scrupulously careful to keep these two objects distinct, and have never allowed my bias in favour of certain conclusions to distort my presentation of the facts. I do not of course pretend that my "facts" and figures are incontrovertible, but at least they are honest attempts to arrive at the truth. In all estimated figures there is a margin of error. It is important to realize that this margin is greater proportionally in some cases than others. Thus the estimates of pre-war wealth and its distribution in Chapter IV are derived from the careful computation of many statisticians starting from different bases, and may be regarded as accurate within a small marginal error, say about 10 per cent. On the other hand, the estimates of changes in wealth during the war are little more than hopeful conjectures, and some of them may be as much as 50 per cent, out or even more. The resulting estimates of aggregate post-war wealth may therefore be subject t

Excerpt from Commercial Organic Analysis, Vol. 1: A Treatise on the Properties, Proximate Analytical Examination, and Modes of Assaying the Various Organic Chemicals and Products Employed in the Arts, Manufactures, Medicine With Concise Methods for the Detection and Determination of Their Impurities, Adu The last edition of this volume, issued in 1885, and which had been out of print for several years, was recently reprinted, under the date of 1898, without the permission of the author and without revisions; and as this unauthorized reprint necessarily misrepresented Mr. Allen's present views on many subjects, he determined to issue a revised edition immediately. While everything has been done to make the book up to date, the exigencies of the occasion limited the time that could be allotted for revision, and distance prevented submission of any manuscript or proof-sheets to the author. Mr. Allen has furnished material, written and printed, on the following subjects: Kjeldahl process; proteids of wheat-flour; vinegar; brewing sugars; malt-substitutes; hop-substitutes; secondary constituents in spirits. Information on the following topics has been added by the American revisor, partly from suggestions furnished by Mr. Allen: Specific gravity; formaldehyde; vinegar; methyl alcohol; acetone; fusel oil; argol; starch; glucose; invert sugar; lactose; wine; and brief notes on other topics. Processes of the American Association of Official Agricultural Chemists have been reprinted from "Bulletin 46" (now out of print), and the revisionary supplements. Numerous typographic errors have been corrected, and the index has been much enlarged. The revision of Vol. II will be much more extensive than that of Vol. I, and is now considerably advanced. I propose to devote a Third Volume to the consideration of Nitrogenised Organic Substances, including Cyanogen Compounds, Alkaloids and Organic Bases, Albuminoids, &c., and hope to have this ready for the press by the time Volume II. appears. I believe that this rearrangement of subject-matter will render the book more convenient for reference, while adapting each particular volume to the special requirements of certain users. I take this opportunity of thanking collectively the considerable number of Chemists, many of whom are personally unknown to me, who have given me the benefit of their special experience, and by whose assistance the book has greatly profited. I am also largely indebted to many Scientific and Technical Journals, and to certain kindred works dealing with Proximate Organic Analysis, for much of the information incorporated in the new edition.

Excerpt from Early Settlers of Harrison, Maine: With an Historical Sketch of the Settlement, Progress and Present Condition of the Town This humble volume makes no pretensions to be a history of the town of Harrison from its settlement to the present time. It was not my purpose when compiling the genealogies of the pioneer families of the town, to give any account of the settlement and growth of the town other than was closely associated with the history of families; but many representatives of the families whose pedigrees I have made out, expressed a desire to see a sketch of the town history in the work when published. I must say that neither my time nor means would admit of an attempt to prepare a complete history of the town; and, besides, such a work- should begin with the early history of Bridgton and Otisfield, towns from which Harrison was made. I will here say that I have gathered a considerable amount of material which would properly come within the scope of the history of the towns before mentioned, and shall be glad to assist any competent person in preparing such a work. The material found in the genealogical department of this work has been gathered from a wide field. I have spent days in listening to the aged people, as they recounted events connected with the early settlement of the town, in which they enacted a part, or were witnesses of; and these I have noted down for permanent preservation. The records of the old families have been gathered from family registers, old bibles, wills, deeds, inventories, petitions, grave-stones and the town records. Much has been gathered from distant parts by correspondence. Great care and patience have been exercised to avoid mistakes in dates. Where discrepencies were known to exist, I have searched diligently for the "bottom facts." Those who have provided records must bear the responsibility of their correctness; I have copied such rerbatim.

Another-may be prepared, uniform with this and upon the same general plan, if circumstances favor. Of the United, Associate and Cumberland Presbyterian 'church, I have not spoken. I have a pretty strong convie tion that in one or two generations all these will be one with ours. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Story of Art Phaidon Press Ltd

Sztuka

The Story of Art, one of the most famous and popular books on art ever written, has been a world bestseller for over four decades. Attracted by the simplicity and clarity of his writing, readers of all ages and back-grounds have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating his deep love of the subject. For the first time in many years the book has been completely redesigned. The illustrations, now in colour throughout, have all been improved and reoriginated, and include six fold-outs. The text has been revised and updated where appropriate, and a number of new artists have been incorporated. The bibliographies have been expanded and updated, and the maps and charts redrawn. The Story of Art has always been admired for two key qualities: it is a pleasure to read and a pleasure to handle. In these respects the new edition is true to its much-loved predecessors: the text runs as smoothly as ever, and the improved illustrations are always on the page where the reader needs them. In its new edition this classic work continues its triumphant progress for another generation and remains the title of first choice for all newcomers to art.'This is a book which, widely read as it will certainly be, may well affect the thought of a generation. Gombrich writes conversationally and intimately. His learning, though very perceptible to any student of the subject, is worn lightly, but he has something new to say on almost every subject. He can illuminate with a few words the whole atmosphere of a period.' T J Boase, Times Literary Supplement, reviewing the 1st edition, 27 January 1950 'A pure delight, intellectually and physically.' Professor H W Janson, New York University, 1950 'Like every art historian of my generation, my way of thinking about pictures has been in large measure shaped by Ernst Gombrich. I was 15 when I read The Story of Art and like millions since, I felt I had been given a map of a great country, and with it the confidence to explore further without fear of being overwhelmed.' Neil MacGregor, Director of the National Gallery, London, 1995 'It is hard to overstate my enthusiasm for this new edition of one of the pivotal works in the great cause of helping bring people and art together. The elegant new design, bringing the illustrations back into their proper relationship with the text; the glorious colour of the illustrations, many completely new; and the limpid, radiant text, itself updated, combine to make this edition a triumph. A book to read, re-read, and, in this format, to savour lovingly like a classic vintage.' J Carter Brown, Director Emeritus, National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, Chairman, US Commission of Fine Arts, 1995 'Almost as well known as the Mona Lisa, Sir Ernst Gombrich's The Story of Art unites learning and pleasure.' Pierre Rosenberg, Président-Directeur, Musée du Louvre, Paris, 1995 'More people - artists, students and scholars alike - have been introduced to the world of fine art, in the last 45 years, though Ernst Gombrich's The Story of Art than through any other single book. It is a magnificent story, written by a great historian whose directness, suspicion of jargon and enthusiasm remain as infectious as ever. The new edition is excellent news for those of us who grew up with Gombrich's book - and even more excellent news for those who are about to.' Christopher Frayling, Professor of Cultural History, Royal College of Art, London, 1995 'The Story of Art was the first history of art which I read as a 19-year-old student. It was a revelation and I could not put it down. It pushed open the door on some of the greatest achievements of the human spirit. Written with love and scholarship, clarity and insight, it stands as a classic cornerstone in any appreciation of art.' Bridget Riley, artist, 1995 'I owe a great debt of gratitude to Ernst Gombrich. I read The Story of Art at school at the age of 15 with curiosity and growing compulsion. It planted in me a feeling of the centrality of art in human experience. His combination of breadth of knowledge and personal insight encouraged me to look at as much painting and sculpture as I could. I re-read the book recently and it is still as strong as ever.' Antony Gormley, sculptor (winner of the 1994 Turner prize), 1995 'Equation: Knowledge + Eye; Solution = Gombrich.' Henri Cartier-Bresson, photographer, 1995 'This book could change your life.' Jeremy Isaacs, General Director, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, 1995 'Not just the most readable introduction to its subject, but a ravishing example of the book-maker's art.' The Times, reviewing the 16th edition, 25 September 1995

Manual of Psychology (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Manual of Psychology Psychology as he does riders in Euclid. It is true that there are students who cannot advance so far from lack of natural endowment. But even for them a treatment full enough to be interesting and so rememberable is better than arid and dogmatic statements which have to be read over feverishly the day before an examination in order that they may not slip out of the mind. Certainly the teacher who needs Psychology for educational purposes would do much better to leave the subject alone altogether than to learn it in a merely external way. My greatest debt here as elsewhere is to my teacher, Professor James Ward. In treating the special sensations I have found the fourth volume of Professor Foster's Text-Book of Physiology very useful. The special chapters on Light-Sensation and Sound-Sensation are abbreviated and adapted with modifications from Professor Ebbinghaus' Grundzüge der Psychologie. In general I have found much help in the writings of James, Baldwin, Ladd, Royce, and Lloyd Morgan. My proofs have been read by Mr. J. Welton, Lecturer in Education in the Yorkshire College, Victoria University, by Professor J. S. Mackenzie, of the University College of South Wales, and by Mr. M. C. W. Irvine, Mental and Moral Science Tutor in the University Correspondence College. I have found their services invaluable, and in particular I feel that the book owes much to the suggestions of Mr. Welton. My brother, Mr. J. F. Stout, has rendered me great assistance in preparing for the press, and has compiled the Index. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
