Excerpt from Landtakers: The Story of an EpochHis eyes screwed up against the harsh light, his boyish features matted in lines of ...discontent, Cabell sat on the side of the road and bitterly compared this crude scene with an image of his native Dorset village. The violence with which he beat at the ﬂies buzz ing in a black cloud round his face and neck revealed the intensity of his feelings.A detachment of soldiers and yellow-clad convicts approached from the other end of the street as though upon air. Only the rattle of a chain here and there was to be heard', for the dust was inches thick and soft as powder. It rose in clouds from their feet and cast a smoky shadow on the ground.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt: .of good quality; the slips firmly attached to the boards; and the leather fairly thick and of a durable kind, although f...or the sake of cheapness it may be necessary to use skins with flaws on the surface. Such flawed skins cost half, or less than half, the price of perfect skins, and surface flaws do not injure the strength of the leather. By sewing on tape, great flexibility of the back is obtained, and much time, and consequent expense, in covering is saved. By using a French joint much thicker leather than usual can be used, with corresponding gain in strength. To bind an octavo or smaller book according to the specification given (III, page 307 ); first make all sections sound, and guard all plates or maps. Make end papers with zigzags. After the sections have been thoroughly pressed, the book will be ready 175 for marking up and sewing. In marking up for sewing on tapes, two marks will be necessary for each tape. When there are several books of the same size to be sewn, they may be placed one above the other in the sewing press, and sewn on to the same tapes. It will be found that the volumes when sewn can easily be slid along the tapes, which must be long enough to provide sufficient for the slips of each. The split boards may be "made" of a thin black mill-board with a thicker straw-board. To "make" a pair of split boards the pieces of straw-and mill-board large enough to make the two are got out, and the straw-board well glued, except in the centre, which should previously be covered with a strip of thin mill-board or tin about four inches wide. The strip is then removed, and the thin black board laid on the glued straw-board and nipped in the press. When dry, the made board is cut down the centre, which will leave two boards glued together all over except for two inches on one side of each. The boards then are squared to the book in a mill-board machine. The back of the book is glued up, and in the ordinary way. read more

Vulli 616329 So Pure Sophie the giraffe Prestige gift pack
In these days of struggle, conflict and war in the Holy Land, one cannot help but wonder what it is in this part of the Middle Eas...t that makes it so valued and desired by all believers, and at the same time, also makes it the only piece of land that has known over 2000 years of an endless state of conflict and war. This documents the first materwork that attempts to chronologically report, in a journalistic manner, and combined with rare works of art, the events that took place in the Holy Land over the last 2000 years, from the birth and life of Jesus, to our time today. We often wonder how a newspaper headline from a thousand years ago would look when recounting events as they occurred in real time. How would they look as a lively, colorful and journalistic report from the field rather than as a historical analysis of these events? This is how the idea for a historical news album arose out of curiosity and desire for a different kind of historical documentation: light, readable, sensational, something of the moment. A decision was made that the book would be based principally on the testimonies of the pilgrims, and to their testimonies historical accounts would be added to exemplify the various periods. The newspaper-like format allows descriptions to be so alive that it seems to place the reader in the actual period itself, fighting in the Crusader ranks, becoming energized and excited from the journey to the Holy Land and the encounter with the historic and holy places. Illustrations are from material taken from hundreds of private and public archives and ancient manuscripts from some of the most renowned international libraries in the world. Some 3000 illustrations were gathered, over 1150 of them found their way into these 256 pages of the book. Gift kit includes the coffee table (13 3/8 x 9 5/8) book, DVD on a tour of the Holy Land, eight photos and a lapel pin. The DVD lets you re-live a pilgrimage and invites you to begin your own journey. An exquisite book of choice for your home - or as a gift for someone you cherish. read more
