High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sir Charles Lyell, 1st Baronet, Kt FRS (14 November 1797 ? 22 February 1875) was a British lawyer and the foremost geologist of his day. He is best known as the author of Principles of Geology, which popularised uniformitarianism ? the idea that the earth was shaped by slow-moving forces still in operation today. Lyell was a close and influential friend of Charles Darwin. Charles Lyell was born in Scotland about 15 miles north of Dundee in Kinnordy, near Kirriemuir in Forfarshire (now in Angus). He was the eldest of ten children. Lyell's father, also named Charles, was a lawyer and botanist of minor repute: it was he who first exposed his son to the study of nature.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Wade Thomas (1805 18 September 1875) was an English poet and dramatist.Thomas was born at Woodbridge, Suffolk. He early went to London, where he began to publish verse of considerable merit under the inspiration of Byron, Keats and especially Shelley. He wrote some plays that were produced on the London stage with a certain measure of success, owing more perhaps to the acting of Charles and Frances Anne Kemble than to the merits of the dramatist. Wade frequently contributed verses to the magazines, and for some years he was editor as well as part-proprietor of Bell''s Weekly Messenger. This venture proving financially unsuccessful, he retired to Jersey, where he edited the British Press, continuing to publish poetry from time to time until 1871.

Quicklet on Jules Verne's Journey to the Center...
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK I have always loved science fiction. Even as a child, the stars on a clear, night sky brought to my mind the possibilities of interstellar travel; visits to the seaside on vacations made me think of living below the sea. This love of the impossible or in many cases, future-possible, lives in me even today, and that is why I have also tried putting some of my imagination on paper in the form of short stories. And even today, Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth remains one of my favorite works of fiction. MEET THE AUTHOR Sourya Biswas was a former risk analyst and have worked with several financial organizations of international repute, besides being a professional journalist with several articles published online. After 6 years of work, I decided to pursue my MBA from the University of Notre Dame. I have a Bachelors in Engineering from the Indian Institute of Information Technology. I'm also a member of high-IQ organizations Mensa and Triple Nine Society and am negotiating with publishers to get his science fiction work published. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Journey to the Center of the Earth, or Voyage au centre de la Terre in the original French, was published for the first time in 1864. The book was inspired by Charles Lyell's Geological Evidences of the Antiquity of Man of 1863. This was a period in which there was a sea-change in how scientific circles perceived the history of the earth. Biblical notions of the earth being only a few thousand years old were being gradually abandoned and the study of geological ages had begun. In that context, the book was an educational treatise in addition to an entertaining read. Though science today discounts the possibility of subterranean worlds populated by ancient creatures existing miles below our feet, it is a fascinating read nevertheless. Granted that Journey to the Center of the Earth does not seem as scientifically feasible as undersea travel presented in Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, but Jules Verne's imagination is hard to ignore. And there's a lot of genuine science in the story which, considering the time it was written in, is uncannily accurate. Buy a copy to keep reading!

Quicklet on Howard Pyle's The Merry Adventures ...
3,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ABOUT THE BOOK I had heard of Robin Hood even before I read about Robin Hood, courtesy my grandmother. After all, the whole concept of a capped archer and his merry men 'taking from the rich to give to the poor' was an attractive proposition for a bedside story. It was only later that I realized that even 'taking from the rich' amounted to crime of some sorts. It was some years later that I came across The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood. Like many before me, and am sure, like many in future, I enjoyed it immensely. From Robin's transformation from a common man to outlaw, to the many memorable characters like Little John, Friar Tuck and the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham, the book captivated me. Of course, no description of Howard Pyle's work is complete without mention of the wonderful illustrations that helped the reader visualize the 'merry adventures.' However, I must warn the reader that the language is a bit archaic and may seem difficult at first. MEET THE AUTHOR Sourya is a former risk analyst and has worked with several financial organizations of international repute, besides being a professional journalist with several articles published online. After 6 years of work, he decided to pursue his MBA from the University of Notre Dame. He holds a Bachelors in Engineering from the Indian Institute of Information Technology. He is also a member of high-IQ organizations Mensa and Triple Nine Society and am negotiating with publishers to get his science fiction work published. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Howard Pyle is not the originator of the Robin Hood legend; in fact, ballads about Robin Hood have been sung for centuries before Pyle decided to put pen to paper. What Pyle did was to present several stories in a cohesive form, accompanied by beautiful illustrations. He also altered the content to make the book suitable for a young audience. For example, while the ballads described Robin Hood as a resourceful robber out for personal gain, Pyle represented him as a voice of justice, who robbed from the rich to give to the poor while himself living a life of hardship in the forests. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood was the first novel that Pyle attempted, after he had had some success publishing illustrated poems and fairy tales in New York. The book was published in 1883 by noted New York publisher Charles Scribner's Sons, who have since then, worked with doyens of American literature like Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Robert Heinlein and Stephen King. Buy a copy to keep reading!
