Summary:

Ordained as a priest, Antonio Lucio Vivaldi became one of Europe s most popular composers during the early part of the eighteenth century. He wrote hundreds of concertos, dozens of operas, and many sacred works before his music fell out of fashion during the latter part of his life. He died in obscurity and his work suffered a similar fate for almost two centuries. His music was rescued from oblivion in the 1930s. His most famous work, The Four Seasons, has since become one of the best-selling classical compositions of all time.

Summary:

Jonathan Swift has had a profound impact on almost all the national literatures of Continental Europe. The celebrated author of acknowledged masterpieces like A Tale of a Tub (1704), Gulliver's Travels (1726), and A Modest Proposal (1729), the Dean of St Patrick's, Dublin, was courted by innumerable translators, adaptors, and retellers, admired and challenged by shoals of critics, and creatively imitated by both novelists and playwrights, not only in Central Europe (Germany and Switzerland) but also in its northern (Denmark and Sweden) and southern (Italy, Spain, and Portugal) outposts, as well as its eastern (Poland and Russia, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria) and Western parts - from the beginning of the eighteenth century to the present day.

Summary:

This carefully crafted ebook: “10 FANTASTICAL ADVENTURES: The People of the Mist, She, Allan and the Ice-gods, The World's Desire, Eric Brighteyes, Ayesha, Wisdom's Daughter, She and Allan, Love Eternal & Heu-Heu” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. “She” is one of the classics of imaginative literature, and one of the best-selling books of all time. She was extraordinarily popular upon its release and has never been out of print. The story is a first-person narrative that follows the journey of Horace Holly and his ward Leo Vincey to a lost kingdom in the African interior. There they encounter a primitive race of natives and a mysterious white queen named Ayesha who reigns as the all-powerful "She", or "She-who-must-be-obeyed". In this work, Rider Haggard developed the conventions of the Lost World subgenre, which many later authors emulated. “Ayesha, the Return of She” is a gothic-fantasy novel, a sequel to his far more popular and well known novel, She. “The People of the Mist” is the tale of a British adventurer seeking wealth in the wilds of Africa, finding romance, and discovering a lost race and its monstrous god. “Allan and the Ice-Gods” featurs the famous character Allan Quartermain, and it is based on an idea given to Haggard by Rudyard Kipling. The story details Quartermain's past life regression to a stone-age ancestor and the various adventures involved. “She and Allan” is a novel, in which Haggard brought together his two most popular characters, Ayesha from She (to which it serves as a prequel), and Allan Quatermain from King Solomon's Mines. Table of Contents: She: A History of Adventure The World's Desire Eric Brighteyes The People of the Mist Ayesha Wisdom's Daughter Heu-Heu Allan and the Ice-gods Love Eternal She and Allan Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and a pioneer of the Lost World literary genre.

Summary:

The library of Jonathan Swift was sold by auction after his death in 1745. Fortunately, there is the auction catalogue, printed in 1746, so we know most of the books Swift owned at the time of his death. The catalogue lists a total of 657 lots. Earlier in his life, Swift had formed a habit of drawing up lists of the books he had read or owned. The first extant, of his reading, dates from 1697/1698, when he was employed by his mentor Sir William Temple. Another inventory of books he owned, Swift compiled in 1715. Although the sale catalogue was published in facsimile by Harold Williams as Dean Swift's Library (Cambridge, 1932), and the 1715 inventory twice (by T.P. LeFanu in 1927 and by William LeFanu in 1988), a thorough and minute description of the volumes in Swift's library has not been undertaken so far. The first part of this handbook, in four volumes, concentrates on the library proper. All individual books are described with a full collational formula, the complete contents, and remarks on the history and transmission of the text, on the life of the author, and on the significance of his writings for a late seventeenth- or early eighteenth-century reader. In order to provide a contemporary assessment of an author's status in Swift's day, the reader always finds a transcription of the relevant entry from the English translation (in two bulky volumes) of Moréri's The Great Historical, Geographical and Poetical Dictionary (1694), a work also on Swift's shelves. Swift's own copies have been consulted whenever their exact locations are known in European and North American libraries. Moreover, most marginalia and inscriptions have been scrupulously consulted and checked against existing printed versions. They are also fully transcribed. Where Swift is known to have quoted from, referred to or alluded to an author, all identified passages in Swift's writings are presented and discussed. Swift may have consulted many works in the libraries of his friend Thomas Sheridan or of Sir William Temple. Therefore, volume IV contains a transcript of the sale catalogue of Sheridan's library (1739) and a tentative list of Temple's library, reconstructed from references in Temple's works and secondary sources. In volume IV, the reader will find an index of references to Swift's works that enables him to consult this handbook when using the current standard editions of the Dean's poems, prose and correspondence, as well as further indexes of subjects, printers and authors.

Summary:

Trifold information for ANTONIO DE ANDALUCIA, El Rey Futuro This is the third and final of Charlotte’s gypsy trilogy which is a great read for all ages. Antonio, Carmelita, Juanito, and the author, lovingly weave together the blend of their hearts’ desires, which bring them to all they are to become. Antonio defines the character traits of a gypsy king and his journey to fulfill them. These are qualities our young readers can adopt. Carmelita continues to encourage Juanito as she realizes past dreams coming true. A beautiful dancing horse joins the family’s circle of love. Juanito begins stretching and growing as he captures his grandpa’s stories. Another talent unfolds before him. ANTONIO has one hundred and twenty new Spanish words that are introduced in the twelve chapters with illustrations and forty-five pages. More Spanish culture/history is shared: bullfighting, the dancing horses of Andalucia, and the festival of San Fermin in Pamplona. The young reader will be touched by the blending of adventure, fantasy, family love, friendship and promises fulfilled. Plus, an invitation from Miguelito del Cielo for their own journey!
