His works show an intimate knowledge of the characters, and they are written without sparing the details. The subjects are of historical importance and show the semi-lawlessness that was typical of Europe in the Middle Ages. The 'Celebrated Crimes' series were an instant hit and Dumas was inundated with suggestions of other celebrated criminals to write about.

He remembered how it had seemed to him to him, a priest sweet to die if he might die clasping unrebuked this woman in his arms. The blood throbbed in his temples as he recalled the wild thoughts that had swirled in a mad throng through his brain in those moments which had seemed like hours; the blood throbbed, too, in his wounded arm, so that a groan forced itself through his parched lips. He was constantly throwing himself to and fro as if to escape from some teasing thought, always to be by the sharp pang in his wound brought to a sense of his condition. The whole night passed in an agony of mind and body.

I have tried to follow as closely as possible the original, and to give the flavour of the text that Hobbes himself proof read, but the following differences were unavoidable. Hobbes used capitals and italics very extensively, for emphasis, for proper names, for quotations, and sometimes, it seems, just because. The original has very extensive margin notes, which are used to show where he introduces the definitions of words and concepts, to give in short the subject that a paragraph or section is dealing with, and to give references to his quotations, largely but not exclusively biblical.

This is a history book. A Chief Engineer (commonly referred to as 'ChEng', 'the Chief' or just 'Chief') is responsible for all operations and maintenance that has to do with any and all engineering equipment throughout the entire ship. Under many jurisdictions the Chief Engineer is of equal rank to the Captain, with responsibility being split between the two posts; the Chief Engineer taking responsibility for engine room and maintenance and the Captain taking responsibility for navigation and deck operations. The Chief Engineer also determines the fuel, lube oil, and other consumables required for a voyage. The duties of a Chief Engineer include: compiling an inventory for spare parts, overseeing the transfer of bunker, lube and slop oil, overseeing all major maintenance, preparing the engine room for inspection by local marine/safety authorities (e.g. U.S. Coast Guard) and is in charge of the engine room during emergency situations. This is the short list of a chief engineer's duties aboard a merchant vessel. The Chief's primary assistant, the first assistant engineer/second engineer, supervises the daily operation of the engine room and engine department and reports directly to the chief. Chief Engineer's licenses are divided into different types for the various types of engine- and power-plant found on ships. These are commonly divided as Steam, covering reciprocating (now almost obsolete) or turbine, and Motor covering Diesel, Diesel-Electric and Gas Turbine. These categories are further divided into power ranges, usually below 3,000kW is an inferior license. Obtaining a Chief Engineer's combined (Steam and Motor) License for unlimited horsepower is, by far, the highest achievement a licensed engineering officer can reach on a merchant vessel. Sailing as chief engineer is an immense undertaking of great responsibility.

"It is but a step from Confucius to confusion", said I, in a brief discussion of the Chinese question. "Then let us take it by all means", replied the artist, who had been an indulgent listener for at least ten minutes. We were strolling upon the verge of the Chinese Quarter in San Francisco, and, turning aside from one of the chief thoroughfares of the city, we plunged into the busiest portion of Chinatown. From our standpoint the corner of Kearny and Sacramento Streets we got the most favorable view of our Mongolian neighbors. Here is a goodly number of merchant gentlemen of wealth and station, comfortably, if not elegantly, housed on two sides of a street that climbs a low hill quite in the manner of a tea box landscape. A few of these gentlemen lodge on the upper floors of their business houses, with Chinese wives, and quaint, old fashioned children gaudily dressed, looking like little idols, chatting glibly with one another, and gracefully gesticulating with hands of exquisite slenderness. Confucius, in his infancy, may have been like one of the least of these. There are white draymen and porters in the employ of these shrewd and civil merchants, and the outward appearance of traffic, as conducted in the immediate vicinity, is rather American than otherwise.

Publisher: Public Domain
Seller: Public Domain

We have before us a volume of autograph letters, chiefly of soldiers and statesmen of the Revolution, and addressed to a good and brave man, General Palmer, who himself drew his sword in the cause. They are profitable reading in a quiet afternoon, and in a mood withdrawn from too intimate relation with the present time; so that we can glide backward some three quarters of a century, and surround ourselves with the ominous sublimity of circumstances that then frowned upon the writers. To give them their full effect, we should imagine that these letters have this moment been brought to town by the splashed and way-worn postrider, or perhaps by an orderly dragoon, who has ridden in a perilous hurry to deliver his despatches. They are magic scrolls, if read in the right spirit. The roll of the drum and the fanfare of the trumpet is latent in some of them; and in others, an echo of the oratory that resounded in the old halls of the Continental Congress, at Philadelphia; or the words may come to us as with the living utterance of one of those illustrious men, speaking face to face, in friendly communion. Strange, that the mere identity of paper and ink should be so powerful. The same thoughts might look cold and ineffectual, in a printed book. Human nature craves a certain materialism and clings pertinaciously to what is tangible, as if that were of more importance than the spirit accidentally involved in it. And, in truth, the original manuscript has always something which print itself must inevitably lose. An erasure, even a blot, a casual irregularity of hand, and all such little imperfections of mechanical execution, bring us close to the writer, and perhaps convey some of those subtle intimations for which language has no shape.

It is a history book. That is, to those portions of the London and western district where American settlers abound, who have so generously repaid the fostering care which Governor Simcoe originally extended to them. One of those rabid folks indebted to the British government, who kept an inn, pad locked his pumps lately when a regiment was marching through Woodstock in hot dusty weather, that the soldiers might not slake their thirst. If they be Scotch Radicals, the most uncompromising and the most bitter of all politicians, they seek Canada only with the ultimate hope of revolutionizing it. But the latter are more than balanced by the respectable Scotch, who emigrate occasionally upon the same principles which actuate the respectable portion of the English emigrants, and by the hardy Highlanders already settled in various parts of the colony, whose proverbial loyalty is proof against the arts of the demagogue.

Le caractère commun de toute la race gallique, dit Strabon d'après le philosophe Posidonius, c'est qu'elle est irritable et folle de guerre, prompte au combat, du reste simple et sans malignité. Si on les irrite, ils marchent ensemble droit à l'ennemi, et l'attaquent de front, sans s'informer d'autre chose. Aussi, par la ruse, on en vient aisément à bout; on les attire au combat quand on veut, où l'on veut, peu importent les motifs; ils sont toujours prêts, n'eussent-ils d'autre arme que leur force et leur audace. Toutefois, par la persuasion, ils se laissent amener sans peine aux choses utiles; ils sont susceptibles de culture et d'instruction littéraire. Forts de leur haute taille et de leur nombre, ils s'assemblent aisément en grande foule, simples qu'ils sont et spontanés, prenant volontiers en main la cause de celui qu'on opprime'. Tel est le premier regard de la philosophie sur la plus sympathique et la plus perfectible des races humaines. Le génie de ces Galls ou Celtes n'est d'abord autre chose que mouvement, attaque et conquête; c'est par la guerre que se mêlent et se rapprochent les nations antiques. Peuple de guerre et de bruit, ils courent le monde l'épée à la main, moins, ce semble, par avidité que par un vague et vain désir de voir, de savoir, d'agir; brisant, détruisant, faute de pouvoir produire encore. Ce sont les enfants du monde naissant; de grands corps mous, blancs et blonds; de l'élan, peu de force et d'haleine; jovialité féroce, espoir immense. Vains, n'ayant rien encore rencontré qui tînt devant eux, ils voulurent aller voir ce que c'était que cet Alexandre, ce conquérant de l'Asie, devant la face duquel les rois s'évanouissaient d'effroi[5]. Que craignez-vous? leur demanda l'homme terrible. Que le ciel ne tombe, dirent-ils; il n'en eut pas d'autre réponse. Le ciel lui-même ne les effrayait guère; ils lui lançaient des flèches quand il tonnait. Si l'Océan même se débordait et venait à eux, ils ne refusaient pas le combat, et marchaient à lui l'épée à la main. C'était leur point d'honneur de ne jamais reculer; ils s'obstinaient souvent à rester sous un toit embrasé. Aucune nation ne faisait meilleur marché de sa vie. On en voyait qui, pour quelque argent, pour un peu de vin, s'engageaient à mourir; ils montaient sur une estrade, distribuaient à leurs amis le vin ou l'argent, se couchaient sur leurs boucliers, et tendaient la gorge.

This is a history adventure book. As soon as the horses belonging to the cavalry, and the military stores had been landed, it was decided that we should advance upon Scinde in two divisions; the infantry under the command of Brigadier Sir Thomas Wiltshire, and the Cavalry under Brigadier Scott. Previous to our departure the troops were reviewed by Lieutenant-General Sir John Keane, who had followed us from Bombay in the Victoria steamer. Sir John expressed himself in terms of warm satisfaction at the high state of discipline and ardour of the men, who were eager to be led against the enemy. The usual precautions on entering hostile territories were now taken, the Cavalry being ordered to sharpen their sabres, and the Infantry served with sixty rounds of ball cartridge.

It is a social history book. These and many other causes conspired to unite the nations of Europe in a more intimate connexion and a more constant intercourse, and of consequence made the regulation of their intercourse more necessary, and the law that was to govern it more important. In proportion as they approached to the condition of provinces of the same empire, it became almost as essential that Europe should have a precise and comprehensive code of the law of nations, as that each country should have a system of municipal law.

Les amis de la liberté politique sont tristes, et les raisons ne manquent pas à leur tristesse. Peut-être m'est-il permis de dire que j'aurais, plus que personne, quelque droit de m'y abandonner. Je suis tombé avec les institutions et le régime que nous regardions comme le témoignage et le gage de la liberté politique. Mais en trouvant la tristesse légitime, je la trouve excessive et injuste envers notre temps et notre patrie. Je ne crois pas que la France ait renoncé à aucune de ses généreuses ambitions, ni qu'elle ait perdu tout moyen de les satisfaire. J'ai confiance dans l'avenir de mon pays et de la liberté politique dans mon pays. Je ne me fais point d'illusion. Parmi les amis de la liberté politique, beaucoup sont découragés, et ne recommenceraient pas volontiers des efforts et des luttes dont ils n'espèrent plus la victoire. D'autres ont reporté sur le régime impérial leurs espérances, et s'en promettent, dans l'avenir, les satisfactions libérales qu'ils croient nécessaires ou possibles. Le public assiste, avec une indifférence sceptique, aux regrets languissants des uns et aux lointaines espérances des autres, uniquement préoccupé des intérêts de la vie civile et de son repos après tant d'orages. A cet état des partis et des esprits se joignent deux idées qui ne sont pas nouvelles, mais qu'on travaille plus activement que jamais à accréditer. On dit qu'après tout, c'est la Révolution française, ce sont ses principes et ses intérêts généraux qui triomphent aujourd'hui, et que ce triomphe importe bien plus à la France que celui de la liberté politique. On ajoute que, si la liberté souffre, l'égalité ne souffre point, et qu'entre les conquêtes de la Révolution, la France tient bien plus à l'égalité qu'à la liberté. Je crois ces deux idées radicalement fausses et funestes. Je crois l'indifférence publique, en fait de liberté, plus apparente que réelle et essentiellement transitoire. Je crois les amis de la liberté politique appelés à reprendre, dans le pays et dans son gouvernement, leur influence, et par conséquent tenus de ne pas se livrer à un découragement naturel, mais non légitime.

The General History and Collection of Voyages and Travels, arranged in Systematic Order forming a complete History of the Origin and Progress of Navigation, Discovery, and Commerce, by Sea and Land, from the earliest ages to the present time. In this short desert, between the Euphrates and Tigris, formerly stood the great and mighty city of ancient Babylon, many of the old ruins of which are easily to be seen by day-light, as I, John Eldred, have often beheld at my good leisure, having made three several journeys between Aleppo and New Babylon. Here also are still to be seen the ruins of the ancient Tower of Babel, which, being upon plain ground, seems very large from afar; but the nearer you come towards it, it seems to grow less and less. I have gone sundry times to see it, and found the remnants still standing above a quarter of a mile in circuit, and almost as high as the stone-work.

The Wars of the Jews (or The History of the Destruction of Jerusalem, or as it usually appears in modern English translations, The Jewish War - original title: Phlauiou Iôsêpou historia Ioudaïkou polemou pros Rhômaious bibliona) is a book written by the 1st century Jewish historian Josephus. It is a description of Jewish history from the capture of Jerusalem by the Seleucid ruler Antiochus IV Epiphanes in 164 BC to the fall and destruction of Jerusalem in the First Jewish-Roman War in AD 70. The book was written about 75, originally in Josephus's "paternal tongue", probably Aramaic, though this version has not survived. It was later translated into Greek, probably under the supervision of Josephus himself.

In this enlightened age, when every department of science and literature is making rapid progress, and knowledge of every kind excites uncommon interest, and is widely diffused, this attempt to call the attention of the public to a Systematic Arrangement of Voyages and Travels, from the earliest period of authentic history to the present time, ought scarcely to require any apology. Yet, on appearing before the tribunal of public opinion, every author who has not cherished an unreasonable estimate of his own qualifications, must necessarily be impressed with considerable anxiety respecting the probable reception of his work; and may be expected to offer some account of the plan and motives of what he proposes to lay before the public.
