Some Account of the Worshipful Company of Skinners of London Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Some Account of the Worshipful Company of Skinners of London: Being the Guild or Fraternity of Corpus Christi The following pages have grown out of a Paper which was read at a Meeting of the London and Middlesex Archćological Society, held at Skinners' Hall, on the 28th April, 1874. It was afterwards published in the Transactions of the Society, with considerable additions, and privately distributed, principally among members of the Court of the Skinners' Company. It is now out of print. In response to requests of many friends that an enlarged and revised edition should be prepared, it seemed to me desirable to improve upon my original publication by adding extracts from the old Court Books and the Renter Wardens' accounts of the 16th and 17th centuries, and to supplement the early memorials of the Skinners' Company (which form the greater part of the volume) with some account of the Company's latter-day work, in connection chiefly with education. I have much pleasure in acknowledging my obligation to the Court of the Company for assisting in the publication of the book, and in expressing my sincere and hearty thanks to all who have individually taken part in its compilation. Among my colleagues on the Court I wish to mention the present Master of the Company, Mr. John Poland F.R.C.S., and Mr. H. A. Wix, L.L.B., Mr. L. B. Sebastian, B.C.L., M.A., His Honour Judge Masterman, D.C.L., and Mr. C. H. Dorman, Past Masters. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Modern Italian Surgery and Old Universities of Italy (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Modern Italian Surgery and Old Universities of Italy For some years prior to the recent great war American medical students have gone to Germany for their post-graduate medical teaching: France, England and Austria, before this, having held the honor in turn. To Italy Americans have travelled to sec art and ruins but never to visit the hospitals or to learn from Italy's medical teachers. Not that the world in general, or America in particular, was unaware of the reputation of the older Italian universities or unfamiliar with the skill and learning of the medical men of the Italy of modern times; but mankind, when the herd instinct is strongly developed, exhibits many reactions that may be traced to humble ancestry and one, at least, of the meek and lowly sheep, namely: that of crowding through the same hole in the fence or over the highest barrier that may block the way. And, then it must be admitted that the art and architecture of Italy, whether preserved or in ruins, present a strong appeal to persons of education and artistic taste. The achievements of Italy in Medicine and Surgery during the last war, however, have been so great that the world can no longer fail to notice them.

History of Old Vincennes and Knox County, Indiana, Vol. 2 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from History of Old Vincennes and Knox County, Indiana, Vol. 2 One of the-surprises of modern times, unknown before the advent of the telegraph and the railroad but standing out more clearly in very recent years, is the rapid growth of important business enterprises. Not like Jonah's gourd, which we are told sprang up in a night and disappeared the next day, are many of these magnificent creations of the marvelous brain of man. Some of them assumed tangible shape quickly, but fostered and encouraged by genius, they have grown from a slender sapling to a great tree which, like the banyan, gives shelter to thousands. In the list of great modern enterprises should be named the Vincennes Bridge Company. Conceived only ten years ago and starting only as a little factory with a small financial foundation but great expectations, the Vincennes Bridge Company has gained a name which is known all over the world and is today one of the largest manufactories of highway bridges in existence. Its output of twelve hundred bridges yearly fails to meet the constantly increasing demand and extensive plans are made for large additions. The plant is thoroughly modern and is supplied with all the ma chinery and devices for fabricating the iron and steel into shape and redue ing the material to sizes convenient for transportation and handling, at the place of consignment. This plant is one of the most important works. At Vincennes and as its output has already reached a million dollars a year,. The prospect of largely increased capacity is regarded with unmixed grati fication by everybody interested in the welfare and growth of the city.

Old Curiosity Shop Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The archetypal Victorian melodrama, as heartfelt and moving today as when it was first published, Charles Dickens's "The Old Curiosity Shop" is edited with notes and an introduction by Norman Page in "Penguin Classics". Little Nell Trent lives in the quiet gloom of the old curiosity shop with her ailing grandfather, for whom she cares with selfless devotion. But when they are unable to pay their debts to the stunted, lecherous and demonic money-lender Daniel Quilp, the shop is seized and they are forced to flee, thrown into a shadowy world in which there seems to be no safe haven. Dickens's portrayal of the innocent, tragic Nell made "The Old Curiosity Shop" an instant bestseller that captured the hearts of the nation, even as it was criticised for its sentimentality by figures such as Oscar Wilde. Yet alongside the story's pathos are some of Dickens's greatest comic and grotesque creations: the ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller, the mannish lawyer Sally Brass, the half-starved 'Marchioness' and the lustful, loathsome Quilp himself. This edition, based on the original text of 1841, contains an introduction by Norman Page discussing the various contrasting themes of the novel and its roots in Dickens's own personal tragedy, with prefaces to the 1841 and 1848 editions, a chronology, notes and original illustrations produced for the serial version. Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including "Oliver Twist", "Great Expectations", "A Tale of Two Cities", "David Copperfield" and "The Pickwick Papers", have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you enjoyed "The Old Curiosity Shop", you might like Dickens' "Hard Times", also available in "Penguin Classics".


With the Old Breed - 2826621649

"Of all the books about the ground war in the Pacific, "With the Old Breed" is the closest to a masterpiece." - "The New York Review of Books". "One of the most arresting documents in war literature." - John Keegan, in "The Second World War". "One of the finest memoirs to emerge from any war". - Paul Fussell, in "Wartime". "The best World War II memoir of an enlisted man". - "Navy Times". In his own book, "Wartime", Paul Fussell called "With the Old Breed" one of the finest memoirs to emerge from any war." John Keegan referred to it in his "The Second World War" as "one of the most arresting documents in war literature." And Studs Terkel was so fascinated with the story he interviewed its author for his book, "The Good War". What has made E.B. Sledge's memoir of his experience fighting in the South Pacific during World War II so devastatingly powerful is its sheer honest simplicity and compassion. "With the Old Breed" presents a stirring, personal account of the vitality and bravery of the Marines in the battles at Peleliu and Okinawa. Born in Mobile, Alabama in 1923 and raised on riding, hunting, fishing, and a respect for history and legendary heroes such as George Washington and Daniel Boone, Eugene Bondurant Sledge (later called "Sledgehammer" by his Marine Corps buddies) joined the Marines the year after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and from 1943 to 1946 endured the events recorded in this book. In those years, he passed, often painfully, from innocence to experience. Sledge enlisted out of patriotism, idealism, and youthful courage, but once he landed on the beach at Peleliu, it was purely a struggle for survival. Based on the notes he kept on slips of paper tucked secretly away in his New Testament, he simply and directly recalls those long months, mincing no words and sparing no pain. The reality of battle meant unbearable heat, deafening gunfire, unimaginable brutality and cruelty, the stench of death, and, above all, constant fear. Sledge still has nightmares about "the bloody, muddy month of May on Okinawa." But, as he also tellingly reveals, the bonds of friendship formed then will never be severed. Sledge's honesty and compassion for the other marines, even complete strangers, sets him apart as a memoirist of war. Read as sobering history or as high adventure, "With the Old Breed" is a moving chronicle of action and courage. About the Author: E. B. "Sledgehammer" Sledge was born and grew up in Mobile. His father, a physician, taught him to hunt and to accurately observe and describe his surroundings. After graduating from high school, he spent a year at Marion Military Institute and a brief period at the Georgia Institute of Technology in an officers' training program. Sledge left the program in late 1943 to enlist in the US Marine Corps. After basic training, he was sent to the Pacific Theater. He fought at Peleliu and Okinawa where some of the fiercest battles of WWII took place. Despite heavy casualties in his unit, he survived without being physically wounded. It took him years, however, to recover from the psychological wounds from that experience. After the Japanese surrendered, Sledge was assigned to serve in China as part of the occupation force. Sledge returned to Mobile after his tour of duty in 1946, but found it hard to re-adjust to civilian life. He earned a BS degree in 1949 from Alabama Polytechnic Institute (now Auburn University) and attempted to establish a career in the insurance business. On his father's advice, he returned to Auburn for an MS in Botany. In 1960, he graduated from the University of Florida with a PhD in Zoology.
