Ancient Manners
Catalog #: SKU4067

The principal character of the novel which the reader is about to have under his eyes is a woman, a courtesan of antiquity; but let him take heart of grace: she will not be converted in the end. She will be loved neither by a saint, nor by a prophet, nor by a god. In the literature of to-day this is a novelty.

Ancient Nahuatl Poetry
Catalog #: SKU3296

The passionate love with which the Nahuas cultivated song, music and the dance is a subject of frequent comment by the historians of Mexico. These arts are invariably mentioned as prominent features of the aboriginal civilization; no public ceremony was complete without them; they were indispensable in the religious services held in the temples; through their assistance the sacred and historical traditions were preserved; and the entertainments of individuals received their chief lustre and charm from their association with these arts.

Dictionary of the First Words in the English Language
Catalog #: SKU3748

This standard for works of earlier date than 1526 is furnished by the following pages, which contain an alphabetical inventory of every word found in the printed English literature of the 13th century. As, however, a mere index verborum would but inadequately fulfil its object, a certain amount of explanatory and etymological matter has been added, which it is hoped may render the work more generally interesting and useful than could otherwise have been the case.

Epea Pteroenta: Revelations of the Past
Catalog #: SKU2851

Epea Pteroenta, presumed to be Greek, has no real meaning in the language. The two words are never used separately. In old translations it is always translated as 'words with wings,' but finds no justification in the Greek for that translation. The book is about the mystery and revelations of what or how words are used and the original meaning or usage.

Far Off Things and The Three Imposters or Transmutations
Catalog #: SKU4120

One night a year or so ago I was the guest of a famous literary society. This society, or club, it is well known, believes in celebrating literature-and all sorts of other things-in a thoroughly agreeable and human fashion. It meets not in any gloomy hall or lecture room, it has no gritty apparatus of blackboard, chalk, and bleared water-bottle.

House of Souls
Catalog #: SKU4118

It was somewhere, I think, towards the autumn of the year 1889 that the thought occurred to me that I might perhaps try to write a little in the modern way. For, hitherto, I had been, as it were, wearing costume in literature.
