Excerpt from The Organ: A Comprehensive Treatise on Its Structure, Vol. 1: Writings and Other Utterances on Its Structure, History, Procural, Capabilities, Etc;; With Criticisms, and Depositories; Preceded by an Analytical Consideration of General Bibliographical and by Construction The present work furnishes the second published department (Compass being the first) of the author's intended entire Treatise on the structure, &c., of the Organ. Several of such departments (though not including any bibliographical one) have already appeared in the pages of the English Mechanic, but written on a too complicated (a Gradal-Alphabetical) plan, - now discarded. The structure of the Organ is a subject so large in its extent, and, at the same time, so comparatively limited as to the interest which it excites, that no really complete work thereon has ever been written, - in any language; and, very possibly, never will be so. The departments just mentioned as having been issued in the English Mechanic constitute, perhaps, the most thorough treatment that those branches of the subject have ever received; but these, as will be seen on a reference to that journal, cover but a quite small portion of the instrument. The Treatise of which the present work forms a department is, undoubtedly, even more nearly exhaustive, so far as it has gone; but this, as is equally obvious, is but a very short distance. There exists, however, scattered here and there throughout Europe and some other parts of the world, a very large amount of literary and pictorial Organ-structural matter. Much of this is contained in Treatises wholly or chiefly devoted to the instrument; but a very considerable portion is imbedded in musical and general brochures, periodicals, &c, of every description conceivable. It is mainly for the purpose of furnishing a key to this heterogeneous mass that the present department has been undertaken so early as the second of the series. The bibliography thus now presented is not, however, confined to the indication of Organ-structural matter, but is - as will have been just understood, - largely, a directory to other musical, mechanical, and general works also. The total number of the regular heads comprised will be seen the introduction (Division I) to be about 1715. It will be noted that the said Introductory Division, which deals with bibliographical structure in the abstract, is of considerable size. This is simply because the plan of the bibliography proper is virtually, an entirely new one; and it therefore manifestly became highly desirable that the reasons for so thorough a departure from established procedure should be fully explained and vindicated. It is to be remembered, that with the large and constant increase in the number of published books existent, there arises the greater necessity that the bibliographies which furnish the indexes thereto shall be constructed on the most correct and lucid principles. The author feels confident that the present work will help to clear up more than one obscurity; notably that which has hitherto almost entirely enveloped the actual structure of the Hydraulic Organ, as described by Vitruvius and other early Writers. Also, it is trusted that some light will be thrown on the real nature of the "Qualifications" and "Trustworthiness" possessed by certain past writers on organ construction. For the reason why so much space has been given to this last matter see at near end of Sub-Division 1 of Division II. As to the qualifications of the present author, it will suffice to refer the reader to the Mead Critical Examination of Mackenzies Org. in the Bibliography Proper. It should be borne in mind that the Degree A.R.C.O. is never conferred honorarily. It is only fair to add that the entire bibliography has been compiled

Winter's Tale Forgotten Books

Excerpt from A Winter's Tale: King John Winter's Tale.] - This play, throughout, is written in the very spirit of its author. And in telling this homely and simple, though agreeable, country tale, Our sweetest Shakespeare, fancy's child, Warbles his native wood-notes wild. This was necessary to observe, in mere justice to the play; as the meanness of the fable, and the extravagant conduct of it, had misled some of great name into a wrong judgement of its merit; which, as far as it regards sentiment and character, is scarce inferior to any in the whole collection. Warburton. At Stationers' Hall, May 22, 1594, Edward White entered "A booke entitled A Wynter Nyght's Pastime." Steevens. The story of this play is taken from The Pleasant His of Dorastus and Faunia, written by Robert Greene. Johnson. In this novel, the King of Sicilia, whom Shakespeare names Leontes, is called... Egistus. Polixenes, K. of Bohemia... Pandosto. Mamillius P. of Sicilia... Garinter. Florizel P. of Bohemia... Dorastus. Camillo... Franion. Old Shepherd... Porrus. Hermione... Bellaria. Perdita... Faunia. Mopsa... Mopsa. The parts of Antigonus, Paulina, and Autolycus, are of the poet's own invention; but many circumstances of the novel are omitted in the play. Steevens. Dr. Warburton, by "some of great name," means Dryden and Pope. See the Essays at the end of the Second Part of The Conquest of Granada: "Witness the lameness of their plots; [the plots of Shakespeare and Fletcher;] many of which, especially those which they wrote first, (for even that age refined itself in some measure,) were made up of some ridiculous incoherent story, which in one play many times took up the business of an age.

Antiquary, Vol. 9 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Antiquary, Vol. 9: A Magazine Devoted to the Study of the Past In the series of articles on the History and Development of the House, commenced in the present number with a description of the Hall, the title need not be considered as in any way tautological, for the history is by no means synonymous with the development. The general arrangement of the ordinary house continued the same for several centuries, and it was only when the taste for luxury had become more widely spread abroad a little time before the Renaissance that a very considerable structural alteration was made. The habitations of the Ancient Britons were little better than huts, though there was doubtless a considerable difference among the various tribes, some of these being much more advanced in civilization than others. Where wood was abundant, the walls of the houses were made of stakes and wattling, like hurdles; and in stony districts large stones were laid on each other without mortar. Some huts were hollowed out of the hills, and in marshy places the villages were built upon piles. Some of these piles have been discovered where excavations have been made in certain parts of London; but we cannot be sure whether they were driven by the Britons, or by an earlier race who preceded them as inhabitants of this island. Roman villas in Britain were built upon the same plan as those which the owners had been used to in their native country; for the Roman, like the Englishman does now, carried his own architecture with him, quite Vol. IX. regardless of its adaptability to the climate of the place where he introduced it. The materials used by the Romans were chiefly bricks and stone; but it is by no means improbable that some of the superstructures raised upon the walls that have been discovered many feet below the level of our present streets were built of wood. The general ground plan of the Roman house consisted of one or more large courts with buildings grouped round them; and in India a plan very similar is still largely followed. Sir George Birdwood, when commenting lately upon Mr. Purdon Clarke's description of the domestic architecture of India, pointed out this obvious similarity, and accounted for it partly by the fact that the Greeks and Romans were offshoots of the same primitive Aryan race as the Vedic Hindus who entered India about B.C.3000. Although the Romans remained in Britain for several centuries, their architecture did not take root in this country, and when they retired, domestic life again returned to a state of barbarism. It is now the fashion to chant the praises of the Saxon; but in respect to his surroundings, his civilization was but a slight advance over that of the Briton before the Roman came here. Mr. Wright, however, held that the Roman villa was often changed into the great Saxon mansion, and that Lord Lytton's description in Harold of the Saxonized Roman house inhabited by Hilda is quite truthful. Among the chief sources we possess for the construction of a mental picture of a Saxon house, are(1) the remains that have been excavated;(2) the descriptions of poets, and(3) the illuminations in old manuscripts. Now the teachings of each of these alone must be received with caution. The first source requires considerable knowledge in the person who attempts to explain the remains; the second source is frequently so full of imagination as to be almost untruthful; and the third source supplies us with pictures which are often as trivial as those of the poets are fanciful. When, however, the three sources are carefully collated and made to illustrate each other, we are able to obtain a trustworthy picture of the life of our forefathers.

Imagining Europe European Interuniversity Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What do people think 'Europe' means? What are its values, what are its borders, and what does it stand for? An important topic, without doubt. But the authors of this research collection are not so much interested in what Europe thinks of itself, but rather in what others think of it. They take a number of scenarios from recent history, and examine how Europe has appeared to people in other parts of the globe: America, China, the Arab world, for example. But they go further, and pose the question for some parts of the world which are 'inside' Europe, but which for one reason or another hover on the margins, like the Balkans, and Turkey. Furthermore they include the views about Europe held in parts of the continent which have without any doubt whatsoever belonged to Europe's core, but which much of the rest of Europe, later, would like to forget about, or marginalise: Stalin's Russia, and Hitler's Germany. Most of the elements investigated here are central to the imagining of Europe, and despite many Europeans' wish to distance themselves, such views should be recognised and taken up as an important and indispensable contribution to the debate about 'What is Europe?'

Forestry Handbook, Vol. 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Forestry Handbook, Vol. 2: Some of the Principal Commercial, Trees of New South Wales The list of trees submitted is imperfect, and the following explanation shows how and why it is so. All the illustrations are based upon the illustrations contained in my Forest Flora of New South Wales, which is still in progress, and sixty parts (ten parts to a volume), dealing with individual trees, and containing a number of Appendices treating of general forestry subjects, have now appeared. Only a selection has been made, and if a further edition be called for, additional trees will be dealt with. In its incomplete state it is believed that it will form a handy volume, showing the state of our knowledge of certain trees in New South Wales, and perusal of it may lead to additions by forest officers and others. Much of the information concerning abundance and distribution of individual species can only be amplified when a forest survey is undertaken. In January, 1906, I published in the Agricultural Gazette of New South Wales a list of 521 trees indigenous to New South Wales, and additional ones have been discovered since then. So that the subject, in this richly-endowed State, is a sufficiently vast one. Some of the trees are, however, not of sufficient economic importance to be dealt with in this Handbook; on the other hand, there is a formidable array of exotic trees either introduced into New South Wales or considered desirable for experiment.

Excerpt from Records: Of the Colony of New Plymouth in New England In this volume is contained a copy of the manuscript lettered "Plymouth Colony Records, Laws, 1623-1681," consisting of three Parts, 1., II., and III., having been so arranged and numbered by the late Benjamin R. Nichols, Esq., who states, in an accompanying note, that "the reason of its being divided into three Parts is, that it was before contained in several volumes." The manuscript volume is principally in the handwriting of Secretary Morton. Pages 5 to 44, of Part I., inclusive, are almost entirely in the handwriting of Edward Winslow, Governor. Pages 45 to 73 appear to be in the handwriting of Nathaniel Sowther. Pages 2, 3, and 4, and the Orders of the General Court commencing 20th October, 1646, page 73, and ending on page 76, were written by an unknown hand. The remainder of the volume, commencing with page 77, Part I., is in the handwriting of Secretary Morton. Portions of the Orders on the second and third pages, which by time and accident have become illegible, are restored from a copy of these Orders in the first volume of Deeds; and a manuscript volume of the Laws belonging to the town of Scituate has been of great service in supplying some deficiencies and illegible portions; all of which additions and corrections, whether in the text or margin, are printed in brackets [ ], and in some cases with the letter S. appended. The Laws were revised in 1636, 1658, and 1671. In 1673 the Court "ordered that nothing shall stand in force in our written booke of lawes; but what the printed lawes Refer vnto."

Integer Partitions Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The theory of integer partitions is a subject of enduring interest. A major research area in its own right, it has found numerous applications, and celebrated results such as the Rogers-Ramanujan identities make it a topic filled with the true romance of mathematics. The aim in this introductory textbook is to provide an accessible and wide ranging introduction to partitions, without requiring anything more of the reader than some familiarity with polynomials and infinite series. Many exercises are included, together with some solutions and helpful hints. The book has a short introduction followed by an initial chapter introducing Euler's famous theorem on partitions with odd parts and partitions with distinct parts. This is followed by chapters titled: Ferrers Graphs, The Rogers-Ramanujan Identities, Generating Functions, Formulas for Partition Functions, Gaussian Polynomials, Durfee Squares, Euler Refined, Plane Partitions, Growing Ferrers Boards, and Musings.

Excerpt from A Lecture on the Working Men's Party: First Delivered October Sixth, Before the Charlestown Lyceum, and Published at Their Request First, that man is, by his nature, a working being; and second, that the daily value of his work, estimated merely in money, is immensely great, in any civilized community. I have made these preliminary remarks, as an introduction to some observations, which I propose to submit in the remainder of this lecture, on the subject of a working men's party. Towards the organization of such a party, steps have been taken in various parts of the country. It is probable, that a great diversity of views exists, among those who have occupied themselves upon the subject, in different places. This circum stance, and the novelty of the subject in some of its aspects, and its importance in all, have led me to think, that we might pass an hour profitably, in its contemplation. I will observe upon it, in the first place, then, that if, as I have endeavored to show, man is by nature a working being, it would follow, that a working men's party is founded, in the very principles of our nature.-most parties may be considered as artificial in their very essence; many are local, temporary, and personal. What will the Adams, or the Jackson, or the Clay party be, a hundred years hence? What are they now, in nine-tenths of the habitable globe? Mere non-entities. But the working men's party, however organized, is one that must subsist, in every civilized country to the end of time. In other words, its first principles are laid in our natures.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, printed single-sided, grade: 2, University of Kassel (Fachbereich Sprachwissenschaften), course: The Power of Reading Books, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Reading as an intellectual competence opens the way to explore culture and knowledge, to participate in cultural life and to enjoy literature. Culture and knowledge are parts of our education and are central to our ability to think critically on any topic. Studying literature plays a central role in developing these skills. According to Hesse (2002, p.50f.), there are some elementary goals of literacy teaching, such as (1) focussing on specific parts of the text, (2) the use of methods which support an active and productive reading behaviour, (3) a change of intensive and extensive phases of reading and (4) the relation to students interests.Literature studies offer students opportunities to work on carefully chosen texts provided by the teacher. Results from the PISA studies of 15-year-old poor readers in Germany illustrate the importance of finding adequate literature for the EFL classroom. In our term paper, we want to examine how far Sandra Cisneros The House on Mango Street is relevant for the EFL class. The questions which chances and opportunities the novel bears and for which purpose its plot is useful to discuss different topics are in the centre of interest.Therefore, the term paper shows didactical and methodological aspects, i.e. how the book relates to the curriculum as well as to the students lives, which learning strategies and social forms can be applied. Therefore, we have provided several tasks to be used in the EFL class which all bear a differentiated analysis. On the one hand, the tasks have a tendency towards creating a relationship between the text and its reader, on the other hand, they enlarge students abilities to use various learning strategies and methods.We can draw the conclusion that "The House on Mango Street" provides numerous essential topics and aspects for teenagers and is, therefore, highly relevant for students in the EFL class. As the book consists of many short stories, it can be used either as a whole entity or partially, a fact which makes the novel attractive to teachers and students as well.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST - "I wrote this book not sure I could follow the road to character, but I wanted at least to know what the road looks like and how other people have trodden it."-David Brooks§§With the wisdom, humor, curiosity, and sharp insights that have brought millions of readers to his New York Times column and his previous bestsellers, David Brooks has consistently illuminated our daily lives in surprising and original ways. In The Social Animal, he explored the neuroscience of human connection and how we can flourish together. Now, in The Road to Character, he focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what he calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our "résumé virtues"-achieving wealth, fame, and status-and our "eulogy virtues," those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.§§Looking to some of the world's greatest thinkers and inspiring leaders, Brooks explores how, through internal struggle and a sense of their own limitations, they have built a strong inner character. Labor activist Frances Perkins understood the need to suppress parts of herself so that she could be an instrument in a larger cause. Dwight Eisenhower organized his life not around impulsive self-expression but considered self-restraint. Dorothy Day, a devout Catholic convert and champion of the poor, learned as a young woman the vocabulary of simplicity and surrender. Civil rights pioneers A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin learned reticence and the logic of self-discipline, the need to distrust oneself even while waging a noble crusade.§§Blending psychology, politics, spirituality, and confessional, The Road to Character provides an opportunity for us to rethink our priorities, and strive to build rich inner lives marked by humility and moral depth.§§"Joy," David Brooks writes, "is a byproduct experienced by people who are aiming for something else. But it comes."§§Praise for The Road to Character §§"A hyper-readable, lucid, often richly detailed human story." - The New York Times Book Review §§"David Brooks-the New York Times columnist and PBS commentator whose measured calm gives punditry a good name-offers the building blocks of a meaningful life." - Washingtonian §§"This profound and eloquent book is written with moral urgency and philosophical elegance." -Andrew Solomon, author of Far from the Tree and The Noonday Demon §§"The voice of the book is calm, fair and humane. The highlight of the material is the quality of the author's moral and spiritual judgments." -The Washington Post §§"A powerful, haunting book that works its way beneath your skin." -The Guardian (U.K.)§§"This learned and engaging book brims with pleasures." - Newsday§§"Original and eye-opening . . . At his best, Brooks is a normative version of Malcolm Gladwell, culling from a wide array of scientists and thinkers to weave an idea bigger than the sum of its parts." - USA Today §§"There is something affecting in the diligence with which Brooks seeks a cure for his self-diagnosed shallowness by plumbing the depths of others." -Rebecca Mead, The New Yorker §§From the Hardcover edition.

Excerpt from Boots at the Swan: A Farce in One Act This little burletta has been some four or five years before the public, and seems to retain all its original popularity. It is from the pen of Mr. Selby, the author of the English "Robert Macaire" and other pieces of merit. The part of the "deal boots," Jacob, was written for Keeley; and he is said to have made it inimitably amusing. At the New York Olympic Theatre, Mr. Mitchell sustains the part with all that rich comic unction for which he is celebrated. The other parts are also well impersonated at this flourishing establishment. Frank Friskly is quite an amusing personage of the Young Rapid species; and though there is a liberal dash of extravagance in this and all the other characters, they have sufficient verisimilitude to engage the attention and keep the risible faculties in constant exercise. Although not remarkable for its originality, this piece promises to retain its place among the stock afterpieces of the stage, from the pervading vivacity and bustle which mark its construction. It is full of action - not of that action which necessarily implies external incident and motion, but the action which developes itself in amusing surprises of phraseology, odd phases of character, a constant ebb and flow of motives and counter-motives, all ending in a denouement which is strictly in keeping with the humorous tenor of the whole piece.

Excerpt from Nature-Study Review, Vol. 17: Devoted to Elementary Science in the Schools The construction of a sun-dial and the setting it up properly should he a delightful means of educating the pupils in a very important subject, the measuring of time, - a subject which is given very little thought in this day of clocks and watches. Even during the discussion of "time saving" turning back the clock an hour, very few understood its real meaning. Sun-dials are very ancient of origin; and probably the earliest form was a pole fixed in the ground with the spaces covered by its shadow during the day divided and marked by stones or in some other manner. The earliest mention of a sun-dial is found in Isaiah xxxviii, 8: "Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees which is gone down in the sun-dial of Ahaz ten degrees backward." This must have been written about 700 years B. C. but we have no idea of the form of this dial. The earliest dial, the construction of which we know, was made by the Chaldean astronomer Berossus who lived about 300 B. C. and it consisted of a hollow hemisphere with its rim horizontal and a bead fixed at its center which cast a shadow, the path of which was an arc which was divided into twelve equal parts. This form of dial was used many centuries by many peoples. No one knows certainly when the first clock was invented nor by whom, but the use of clocks in Europe in the 13th century has been recorded.

Evolution of Modern Metaphysics Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book is concerned with the history of metaphysics since Descartes. Taking as its definition of metaphysics 'the most general attempt to make sense of things', it charts the evolution of this enterprise through various competing conceptions of its possibility, scope, and limits. The book is divided into three parts, dealing respectively with the early modern period, the late modern period in the analytic tradition, and the late modern period in non-analytic traditions. In its unusually wide range, A. W. Moore's study refutes the tired old cliché that there is some unbridgeable gulf between analytic philosophy and philosophy of other kinds. It also advances its own distinctive and compelling conception of what metaphysics is and why it matters. Moore explores how metaphysics can help us to cope with continually changing demands on our humanity by making sense of things in ways that are radically new.
