Excerpt from Webs From Fancy's Loom: Poems and Sketches Prefatory Lines. The world is full of books, then why should I Another add to its redundant store? And give, when it perchance doth want no more? All, well! I still must sing, I scarce know why. Unless, as sun lights up the midday sky, And silvery brooklets rim, and song birds sing, And flowers their glorious hues show forth, and fling Their perfumes on the air unasked, all ply Their parts and give their best without a sigh, Because they must. With me 'tis even so: The springs of song within me rise and flow, I may not let their waters stagnant lie, And woe betide me if I hoard in greed The streams which thirsty souls around me need. Not fame nor profit do I hope to gain, Though, rightly won, such things are not amiss; My dearest, inmost hope I feel is this: That some sad hearts may find herein a strain Or word of hope to ease their hidden pain, Some thought of God to cheer their upward way, Revive their flickering faith's expiring ray, And help them life's best victories to attain. Such ministry as this be mine, and then I have my heart's most dear desire fulfilled, All baser cravings in my soul are stilled, That I may better serve my fellow men. Lord, so let grace and love within me shine That life and song may both alike be Thine. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Search for Money Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Search for Money: Or the Lamentable Complaint for the Loss of the Wandering Knight, Monsieur L'argent The extraordinary rarity of the black-letter tract from which the following reprint has been made, was not the principal recommendation of it to that distinction. It is a lively, fanciful, minute, and amusing picture of manners; and it includes some curious topographical details, chiefly regarding London and its suburbs. The author supposes himself and some other disbanded soldiers to go in search of Money, personified under the figure of "the wandering knight." This quest leads them through various parts of the metropolis and among different classes of society, which are described with humour, spirit, and fidelity. This circumstance renders the production peculiarly valuable, independently of the fact that no copy, excepting that which we have employed, and another formerly in the possession of Isaac Reed, appears to exist either in public or private libraries.

Where God and Science Meet Praeger Publishers Inc

Spiritual practices, or awakenings, have an impact on brain, mind and personality. These changes are being scientifically predicted and proven. For example, studies show Buddhist priests and Franciscan nuns at the peak of religious feelings show a functional change in the lobes of their brain. Similar processes have been found in people with epilepsy, which Hippocrates called the sacred disease. New research is showing that not only does a person's brain activity change in particular areas while that person is experiencing religious epiphany, but such events can be created for some people, even self-professed atheists, by stimulating various parts of the brain. In this far-reaching and novel set, experts from across the nation and around the world present evolutionary, neuroscientific, and psychological approaches to explaining and exploring religion, including the newest findings and evidence that have spurred the fledgling field of neurotheology. It is not the goal of neurotheology to prove or disprove the existence of God, but to understand the biology of spiritual experiences. Such experiences seem to exist outside time and space - caused by the brain for some reason losing its perception of a boundary between physical body and outside world - and could help explain other intangible events, such as altered states of consciousness, possessions, alien visitations, near-death experiences and out-of-body events. Understanding them - as well as how and why these abilities evolved in the brain - could also help us understand how religion contributes to survival of the human race. Eminent contributors to this set help us answer questions including: How does religion better our brain function? What is the difference between a religious person and a terrorist who kills in the name of religion? Is there one site or function in the brain necessary for religious experience?

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION NOTE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION I. WHAT PATTERN IS Pattern not understood The meaning of the word "Comes of repetition, and is closely connected with manufacture" Has always a geometric basis Use and necessity of system in design "Lines inevitable, and must not be left to chance" II. THE SQUARE Geometry the basis of all pattern Breaks in the simple stripe give cross-lines "Hence the lattice and the chequer, on which a vast variety of pattern is built" III. THE TRIANGLE The square lattice crossed by diagonal lines gives the triangle Hence the diamond "And out of that the hexagon, the star, and other geometric units familiar in Arab diaper" IV. THE OCTAGON Four series of lines give the octagon "Not the unit of a complete pattern, but the basis of some radiating patterns" "More complicated cross-lines, giving sixteen and eighteen sided figures, result in more elaborate pattern, but involve no new principle " Pentagon pattern really built on simple trellis lines V. THE CIRCLE The circle gives no new plan but only curvilinear versions of the foregoing The wave a rounded zig-zag The honeycomb compressed circles "Segments of circles give scale pattern, a curvilinear variation upon diamond" The ogee The circle itself a scaffolding for design VI. THE EVOLUTION OF PATTERN Various starting points for the same pattern Six ways in which it might have been evolved The construction of sundry geometric diapers Influence of material upon design Some complex lattices VII. BORDERS What a border is "Includes frieze, pilster, frame, &c." Simplicity Short interval of repeat Flowing and broken borders Mere lines "Stop" borders" Frets Evolute Zig-zag Chevron Undulate Guilloche Interlacing Chain Strap Branching lines Spiral scroll Counterchange Intermittent borders Block border Panel border The S scroll Natural growth Enclosed borders "Fringes, &c." Strong and weak side of border Direction of border Corners and their influence upon design Circular and concentric borders VIII. PRACTICAL PATTERN PLANNING Possible and practicable lines of pattern construction Lines often fixed for the designer Conditions of production affect plan "Triangular plan, oriental" "Rectangular plan, western" Relation of one plan to the other Of triangular and octagonal repeat to rectangular Possibilities of the diamond Design regulated by proportions of repeat IX. THE TURNOVER A weaver's device Doubles width of pattern Exact turnover not desirable where conditions do not make it necessary Balance must be preserved Use of doubling over in border design Suited to stenciling and pouncing X. "THE "DROP" REPEAT" Scope given by drop repeat Designed on diamond lines And on the square Geometrically same result Practically different patterns Opportunity of carrying pattern beyond width of stuff Brick or masonry plan Octagonal plan Step pattern False drop XI. SMALLER REPEATS Width of repeat divisible into width of material Repeat two-thirds or two-fifths of width of material Full width repeat seeming smaller Variety in apparent uniformity Weavers' ways of doing it Same principle applied to larger design Method and haphazard More complicated system Other plans for disguising precise order of small repeats XII. SUNDRY SCAFFOLDINGS Importance of variety of plan Area of pattern not confined to area of repeat Excursions compensated by incursions Lines thus disguised "Wave-lines, turned over, result in ogee" Wave-lines result from working within narrow upright lines Uprightness of narrow repeats counteracted by lines across Diagonal wavelines to connect features forming horizontal band Designs obviously based upon slanting and horizontal lines Wave-line from side to side of broad repeat Scaffolding of an old Louis XVI. Pattern XIII. THE TURN-ROUND Unit of design may be turned part way round Unit of 6 by 6 inches results in repeat of 12 by 12 inches Works either on the straight or as a drop For radiating pattern a triangle half size of smaller square suffices for unit Fold and fold again Arab lattice pattern dissected XIV. HOW TO SET ABOUT DESIGN Free patterns planned on formal lines Features recur at intervals determined by unit of repeat Planning the only way to avoid unforseen effects Means of disguising formal lines Necessity for system Genesis of counter-change border Of geometric diaper How not to do it Detail not to be determined too soon Genesis of conventional floral pattern starting with the masses Of a drop pattern Of a pattern stating with line Of a floral pattern starting with distribution of flowers Of a velvet pattern starting with severe lines "Inhabited" pattern" Evolution of Italian arabesque pilaster Animal form in pattern Starting at a venture And from an idea Afterthoughts XV. TO PROVE A PATTERN The unit of design a repeat Repeat to be tested One repeat not enough to show how design works More must be indicated Test of roughing out on one plan and working out on another Accurate fit essential Proving to be done at early stage of design Test of cutting up drawing and rearranging the parts XVI. PATTERN PLANNING IN RELATION TO TECHNIQUE Dimensions of design determined by conditions of manufacture Possibilities in block printing Limitations in weaving Narrow repeat a condition of Sponging down Colour designs in colour from the first Colour as a help in complicated design Form and colour Design only a map of form and colour Precaution against self-deception The evolution of a design Tracing paper Accident Mechanical helps Hardness Precision essential Body colour Water colour Systematic use of mixed tints Working drawing only a means to an end. XIX. COLOUR Close connection between form and colour Effect of colour upon design Drawing should show not merely effect of colour but its plan A map of colour value and relation Differences that colour makes Casual colour Colour and material "Geometric form softened by colour, accidental or cunningly planned" Confusion of form by colour Emphasis of form by colour Change of colour in ground XX.

Dark Matter And Cosmic Web Story World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The concepts of dark matter and the cosmic web are some of the most significant developments in cosmology in the past century. They have decisively changed the classical cosmological paradigm, which was first elaborated upon during the first half of the 20th century but ran into serious problems in the second half. Today, they are integral parts of modern cosmology, which explains everything from the Big Bang to inflation to the large scale structure of the Universe. Dark Matter and Cosmic Web Story describes the contributions that led to a paradigm shift from the Eastern point of view. It describes the problems with the classical view, the attempts to solve them, the difficulties encountered by those solutions, and the conferences where the merits of the new concepts were debated. Amidst the science, the story of scientific work in a small country occupied by the Soviet Union and the tumultuous events that led to its breakup are detailed as well. This book is accompanied by a website which contains additional material: copies of the originals of some crucial papers, astronomical movies, and movies which showcase the private life of the author.

"The poems of Anthony McCann are beautiful, brutal, and unerring. They present us with, or return us to, a complicated, violent, poignant, weird, and mysterious world--a world which is very particularly his, and also our own, re-sung. For some time now I have believed McCann to be one of the finest poets writing today."--Maggie Nelson "McCann demonstrates that the truth surrounds us all; our best way of connecting with it is through compassion and love. With equal parts exuberance and dread, the speaker encourages us to 'waste the whole day feeling these things.'"--Boston Review Thing Music performs intertwinings both painful and pleasurable: intertwinings of perceiving bodies with their perceptual worlds, of persons with other persons, and of the I and the You. Marked in direct and indirect ways by the Occupy movement, these poems model a kind of porous personhood, with bodies and persons traversed by light, noise, violence, culture, and words. From "Mouth Guitar": Now the pulsing afternoon takes each belly in its hands lifts it up towards some glass and all that's inside While he crawled on with his body towards vengeance or the state Anthony McCann lives in Los Angeles and teaches in the University of California-Riverside's Palm Desert MFA program. He is the "Poet Laureate" of Machine Project, and also teaches courses at the California Institute of the Arts.

Excerpt from Catalogue of the Library of the Late Bishop John Fletcher Hurst, Vol. 1: Washington Franklin; Sale Held by Order of the American Security and Trust Co; Of Washington, D. C. (Sole Executor); To Be Sold at Auction, Monday and Tuesday Evenings, May 2d and 3d, 1904 He entered Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pa., in 1850, graduated Bachelor of Arts in 1854, and received his Master's degree in 1858. His Alma Mater conferred the Doctorate in Divinity in 1866, and Princeton University bestowed the same honor in 1896, Indiana Asbury University (de Pauw) and Dickinson College each gave him the Doctorate of Laws in 1877. His tastes for history and linguistics became more pronounced underthe fostering care of able and discriminating teachers during his college course, and his conviction that he should prepare himself for the Christian ministry became a settled one, though involv ing an abandonment of the law, to which his friends and his own thought had for some time pointed him. After graduation he taught, first in a common school for a few months at Greensboro, Maryland, and then for nearly two years in the Hedding Literary Institute, which ran a brief career of about four years in Ashland, N. Y., among the Catskills. His department was Latin and Greek, with some occasional work in English and a few lectures. One of the lady teachers of this school was Miss Kate E. La Monte, in charge of the ornamental branches. In 1859 she became Mrs. Hurst. John Burroughs was one of his pupils in Ashland. To equip himself both in body and mind more thoroughly for his life work, he spent a part of two years, 1856 and 185 7, in Europe, dividing his time between attendance upon lectures at the Universities of Halle and Heidelberg, and making several journeys, some of them on foot, in Switzerland and other parts of the Continent. He returned to America in the autumn of 185 7, and began preaching in January, 1858, as a supply under the presiding elder on the Carlisle circuit, then a part of the Baltimore Conference, with his headquarters at Mechanicsburg, Pa. In the following spring he joined the Newark Conference at its first session, and was assigned to Irvington, N. J., where he labored for one year. He was ordained deacon by Bishop Scott in 1860, and elder by Bishop Morris in 1862. His pastorates after the first were at Passaic; Elizabethport; Water Street, Eliza beth; and Trinity, on Staten Island; each for two years, though the last named was cut short by his acceptance in the autumn of 1866 of the professorship of theology in the school for Ger man preachers at Bremen, Germany, later removed to Frankfort ou-the-main under the name of the Martin Mission Institute.

Macedonian Folklore (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Macedonian Folklore The present volume contains the result of some researches into the folklore of the Greek-speaking parts of Macedonia, carried on in 1900-1 by the author under the auspices of the Electors to the Prendergast Studentship and of the Governing Body of Emmanuel College. The materials thus derived from oral tradition have, in some cases, been supplemented from local publications. Among the latter, special mention must be made of the two excellent booklets on the antiquities and folklore of Liakkovikia, by A. D. Gousios, a native schoolmaster, frequently quoted in the following pages. The peasant almanacks have also yielded a few additional sayings concerning the months. The writer has not been content with a bare record of Dreams, magic terrors, spells of mighty power, Witches, and ghosts who rove at midnight hour, but, induced by the example of his betters, has undertaken some tentative flights to Zululand, Yungnulgra, Zamboanga, the Seranglao and Gorong archipelagoes, and other resorts now fashionable among folklorists. Ancient History and modern, the Old World and the New have been laid under contribution, to the limited extent of the author's reading, with the result that many a nursery rhyme, shorn of all its familiar simplicity, has been Started at home and hunted in the dark To Gaul, to Greece, and into Noah's ark.

Childe Harold's Pilgrimage Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Childe Harold's Pilgrimage: A Romaunt The following poem was written, for the most part, amidst the scenes which it attempts to describe. It was begun in Albania; and the parts relative to Spain and Portugal were composed from the author's observations in those countries. Thus much it may be necessary to state for the correctness of the descriptions. The scenes attempted to be sketched are in Spain, Portugal, Epirus, Acarnania, and Greece. There, for the present, the poem stops: its reception will determine whether the author may venture to conduct his readers to the capital of the East, through Ionia and Phrygia: these two cantos are merely experimental. A fictitious character is introduced for the sake of giving some connection to the piece; which, however, makes no pretension to regularity. It has been suggested to me by friends, on whose opinions I set a high value, that in this fictitious character, "Childe Harold," I may incur the suspicion of having intended some real personage: this I beg leave, once for all, to disclaim - Harold is the child of imagination, for the purpose I have stated. In some very trivial particulars, and those merely local, there might be grounds for such a notion; but in the main points, I should hope, none whatever.

Gospels as Historical Documents, Vol. 3 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Gospels as Historical Documents, Vol. 3: The Fourth Gospel In this volume, for reasons which I have given in the Epilogue, I bring this work to a close, in spite of a different plan which I sketched in the preface to my first volume. The present volume is occupied with the Fourth Gospel, as the last was with the Synoptic Gospels. Questions, however, relating to the authorship of the Fourth Gospel came before us to a considerable extent in the first volume owing to their connexion with the history of the reception of the four Canonical Gospels in the Church, which was the special subject of that volume. In the present volume I am principally concerned with the form and character of the Fourth Gospel itself, though I have had occasion to add a little to what I before wrote on its use in the Church, and the tradition about John son of Zebedee. Possibly an explanation may be due from me to any readers of the two former volumes who have felt some interest in my work, with regard to the long delay - no less than eleven years - since the publication of my last volume. This has to a considerable extent been caused by the intricate nature of the problems which the subject presents, and the amount of controversial literature dealing with them, requiring to be mastered. But in addition to this I have often found it impossible even for some months together to work at them at all owing to official duties. The recovery of threads which have been dropped has often been a difficult and laborious task; but I hope that there has been some gain in one's having been compelled to come back even to the same parts of the subject repeatedly, and to weigh more than once conclusions already before arrived at.

Manual of North American Butterflies (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Manual of North American Butterflies In bringing together for the first time, descriptions of all the species of Butterflies which occur in North America, north of Mexico, I have experienced considerable difficulty. It has been impossible for me to sec specimens of some species, hence I have been obliged to compile descriptions in quite a number of cases, and scattered as the literature upon this subject is, through publications in this country and abroad, the task has not been an easy one: but as I have in the majority of species consulted original descriptions, the compilation can be relied upon as being correct. As this book is intended for the use of the tyro as well as for the advanced student, I have avoided the use of technical terms as far as possible, reducing the various methods of descriptions to a uniform system. Thus I trust that this work will be readily comprehended by every one who desires to consult its pages, without first being obliged to learn the peculiar applications which those who make the study of Butterflies a specialty, have seen fit to give to the various parts of these insects. Professional specialists are too apt to overlook the fact, that the average student who wishes to know something of every class of animal about him, has no time to learn a peculiar system of nomenclature with each; while simple designations arc intelligible alike to the amateur and professional student. I have, in every species, made the description as short as possible, using, where I could do so, the comparative method, as being loss confusing. In order to facilitate identification, not only is a colored plate given of one species of nearly all the genera, but wood cuts arc given of some portion of about two hundred and fifty species, illustrating some peculiar character by which the insect may be known. Both plates and wood cuts have, with a single exception, been drawn and engraved by myself. The arrangement given is that published by Mr. W. H. Edwards in his catalogue of 1884.
