The Journey of Coronado

The Journey of Coronado by Pedro de Castaneda

The Journey of Coronado by Pedro de Castaneda

In 1540, Francisco Vásquez de Coronado led an army from Mexico is search of the fabled golden cities of Cíbola. The Spaniards found no riches—instead, the Grand Canyon, the vast buffalo plains, and the pueblos of Zuni and Pecos. The narratives in this volume are all first-hand accounts of the Coronado expedition–raw, gripping, spirit-stirring–translated from the Spanish by George Parker Winship. The primary account was written by Pedro de Castañeda, a soldier in Coronado’s army. Letters from Coronado to the viceroy of Mexico and the Spanish king are also included.

Stupor Mundi

Stupor Mundi by Lionel Allshorn

Stupor Mundi by Lionel Allshorn

Frederick II, under whose reign the Holy Roman Empire reached its greatest territorial extent, was called by his contemporaries “Stupor Mundi,” the “astonishment of the world.” Frequently at war with the papacy, which was hemmed in between Frederick’s northern and southern Italian lands, he was excommunicated four times. Frederick spoke six languages and was an avid patron of the arts. He negotiated a peace treaty ending the sixth crusade, reigned over a cosmopolitan court at Palermo, and entrusted the administration of his southern kingdom to an efficient Muslim and Jewish bureaucracy. Allshorn writes that “around his name there gathered a glamour of strangeness and splendor, of genius soaring to perilous questionings of eternal truths, of unbreakable resolution and of unconquerable pride.”

The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights

The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights by Sir Thomas Malory

The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights by Sir Thomas Malory

In acceding to their request I wish to say that the book as now published is merely a word-for-word reprint of my early effort to help to popularise the Arthur legends.

It is little else than an abridgment of Sir Thomas Malory’s version of them as printed by Caxton—with a few additions from Geoffrey of Monmouth and other sources—and an endeavour to arrange the many tales into a more or less consecutive story.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, these narratives provide a fascinating insight into the history of the buildings and the hysteria they may induce.

Growth of the Soil

Growth of the Soil by Knut Hamsun

Growth of the Soil by Knut Hamsun

WINNER Nobel Prize in Literature

Growth of the Soil is the novel by Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun which won him the Nobel Prize in Literature. The essential elements of this novel are expressed in the words of the English translator W.W. Worster in his footnote: ‘It is the life story of a man in the wilds, the genesis and gradual development of a homestead, the unit of humanity, in the unfilled, uncleared tracts that still remain in the Norwegian Highlands. It is an epic of earth; the history of a microcosm. Its dominant note is one of patient strength and simplicity; the mainstay of its working is the tacit, stern, yet loving alliance between Nature and the Man who faces her himself, trusting to himself and her for the physical means of life, and the spiritual contentment with life which she must grant if he be worthy. . .The story is epic in its magnitude, in its calm, steady progress and un-hurrying rhythm, in its vast and intimate humanity. The author looks upon his characters with a great, all-tolerant sympathy, aloof yet kindly, as a god.’
