Fables of Aesop, And Others

By: D.D. Samuel Croxall

Excerpt: You must not be surprised at my begging your protection for this little book, when I assure you it was principally intended for your perusal. I had often wished to see something of this kind published by an able hand; and, for want of that, have sometimes had an inclination to do it myself; but never came to any resolution on that point, till very lately; when at Horton, I had the pleasure to find your Lordship, though but in your fifth year, capable of reading ...

Fairy Tales : Their Origin and Meaning : With Some Account of Dwel...

By: John Thackray Bunce

Introductory Note: THE substance of this volume was delivered as a course of Christmas Holiday Lectures, in 1877, at the Birmingham and Midland Institute, of which the author was then the senior Vice-president. It was found that both the subject and the matter interested young people; and it was therefore thought that, revised and extended, the Lectures might not prove unacceptable in the form of a Book.

The House on the Beach

By: George Meredith

Excerpt: Chapter 1. The experience of great officials who have laid down their dignities before death, or have had the philosophic mind to review themselves while still wielding the deputy sceptre, teaches them that in the exercise of authority over men an eccentric behaviour in trifles has most exposed them to hostile criticism and gone farthest to jeopardize their popularity. It is their Achilles? heel; the place where their mother Nature holds them as she dips them in our waters.

He thus addressed him: ?Sirrah, last year you grossly insulted me.? ?Indeed,? bleated the Lamb in a mournful tone of voice, ?I was not then born.? Then said the Wolf, ?You feed in my pasture.? ?No, good sir,? replied the Lamb, ?I have not yet tasted grass.?

Findelkind

By: Ouida

Excerpt: FINDELKIND. There was a little boy, a year or two ago, who lived under the shadow of Martinswand. Most people know, I should suppose, that the Martinswand is that mountain in the Oberinnthal, where, several centuries past, brave Kaiser Max lost his footing as he stalked the chamois, and fell upon a ledge of rock, and stayed there, in mortal peril, for thirty hours, till he was rescued by the strength and agility of a Tyrol hunter, an angel in the guise of a hunt...
