Edward Royle is the head of a well-known chemical manufacturer in England, which he has inherited. He is engaged to the daughter of his father’s former partner, Phrida Shand, who lives with her mother.

One night he is asked by his friend, Sir Digby Kemsley – a very famous railroad engineer, to come to his flat to discuss something although Kemsley is quite mysterious on the telephone. Royle finds a gentleman in Kemsley’s place who is clearly not Kemsley, or is he? Kemsley asks Royle to trust him but that night, a young woman is murdered at Kemsley’s flat. Kemsley has disappeared. Royle discovers that his fiancé was in Kemsley’s flat at the time of the murder and is obviously hiding something.

Once again, Le Queux takes us through a maze of intrigue and locations in Europe.

On the Seashore

On the Seashore by R. Cadwallader Smith

On the Seashore by R. Cadwallader Smith

This gifted nature writer who is so good at describing animals and their habitat and habits here gives us a look at many of the fascinating creatures that can be found on the seashore. Starfish, the many types of crabs, shrimp, sea weed and finally something called the Precious Wentletrap which I will allow your imagination to think about for a while. His writing is clear and, as always, easy to read. Note that these are presented as educational ‘lessons’ on the various animals found near the sea and each lesson or chapter ends with a few questions called ‘Exercises’ which the student is asked to see if the main points of the chapter are retained.

Five Cookbooks every cook should own!

All You Can Books, top picks for cooking books

Cooking is a science as much as it is an art. But more than that, cooking is fun, and it’s accessible to all, whether you’re a Michelin-star chef or a disaster-prone mess in the kitchen.

That’s why there are quite a few beloved personalities who have put the joy of cooking into words. No, we’re not talking about cookbooks, but rather books about cooking—books that describe the freedom, philosophy, and art of putting together something tasty.

Let us look at the top picks by All You Can Books:

The Khaki Kook Book | Mary Kennedy Core

We cannot ignore the fact that we must eat, and that much as we dislike to acknowledge it, we are compelled to think a great deal about filling our stomachs. This is especially true these days, when prices have soared and soared and taken along with them, far out of the reach of many of us, certain articles of food which we heretofore have always felt were quite necessary to us.

About ten years ago the idea of writing a little cookbook had its birth. The author was in Almora that summer. Almora is a station far up in the Himalayas, a clean little bazaar nestles at the foot of enclosing mountains. Dotting the deodar-covered slopes of these mountains are the picturesque bungalows of the European residents while towering above and over all are the glistening peaks of the eternal snows.

The people of India since Vedic times have eaten curry and always will.

365 Foreign Dishes |

Starters, main courses and desserts from around the world, one dish for every day of the year. From Turkey to China, from India to England, from Austria to Egypt, a wide variety of mouth-watering cuisines are represented.

Each recipe is described in one short paragraph, making this book perfect for dipping into when you’re seeking inspiration on what to cook.

Cassell's Vegetarian Cookery | A. G. Payne

This is a little cookbook of vegetarian recipes, which was gaining popularity in England at the time of its publication.

The recipes are all very clearly described, and any modern listener should be able to try them out if any of them strike their fancy.

A Poetical Cook-Book | Maria J. Moss

This is an interesting mix of recipes and poetry about cookery and food. The author has written this book during and in the aftermath of the civil war in the United States. The recipes are sound and can be used still today, and the poetry is an interesting collection of short excerpts and poems by all famous poets.

Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and Sweetm | Eliza Leslie

If you are a sweet tooth, and love baking, this is the book for you. Or if you are aspiring baker, you will find your love for baking right here in this book.
