Henry Curwen (1845 1892) was a journalist and author who became editor of the Times of India. First published in 1874, A History of Booksellers aimed at providing an informative but entertaining picture of British bookselling and publishing, by means of biographies of the major publishing houses and their output. He begins with a general survey of publishing and bookselling from Roman times to the nineteenth century, including a discussion of copyright legislation. It is clear that by 1800 the demand for books was considerable and growing: Alexander Donaldson, who specialised in cheap reprints of popular works, though repeatedly sued over copyright by other publishers, died in 1794 a very rich man. Many of the firms Curwen discusses are still well-known names, such as Longmans, Chambers, Butterworths and W.H. Smith. He concludes with anecdotes on some of the better known representatives of the provincial book trade. *Author: Curwen, Henry *Series Title: Cambridge Library Collection: Printing and Publishing History (Paperback) *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 526 *Publication Date: 2010/10/28 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.51 x 8.50 x 1.17 inches

From the Introduction: Renewed interest in nineteenth century baseball?just a trickle when SABR’s pioneering Nineteenth Century Stars was published?has become a steady stream. Every year since 1989 has seen the publication of one or more new books devoted entirely to the nineteenth century game, and books that treat the whole history of baseball are less likely than they were to undervalue the nineteenth century. It is even possible to witness authentic early baseball, as played by dozens of vintage ball clubs, many of them representing historic villages and museums. Most of the persons profiled are players, but there are also umpires, managers, club owners, league officials and baseball writers. There are men as prominent as Albert Goodwill Spalding, who after a brilliant pitching career founded what became the dominant sporting goods company, and then wrote the first history of baseball. And Michael King Kelly, the game’s first superstar, who inspired the song Slide, Kelly, Slide. There are others whose names are no longer familiar, like William Cammeyer, who first had the bright idea of putting fence around a baseball park. And Al Spink, who founded The Sporting News. And pitched Bert Cunningham, who posted a losing record over all, but in one splendid season won more games than Cy Young?for a team that finished 33 games out of first place. Cy Young is also here. So is Adrian Anson, an awesome hitter who was known as Pop by the end of his 27-year major league career, and George Stovey, an awesome pitcher who never played a single major league game because of the racist views of men like Anson. Two umpires called Honest John?Gaffney and Kelly?are profiled here, and no fewer than four fathers of baseball’: Alexander Cartwright, whose suggestion to his friends one day on a ball field led to the game we know today; Daniel L. Doc Adams, who biographer John Thorn argues is the real father of the game; Henry Chadwick, a jou

Beautiful Deceptions


Beautiful Deceptions


$56.59


Building on Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten’s definition of aesthetics as the science of sensuous cognition and the writings of early European aestheticians (Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Schiller, Charles Batteaux, David Hume, and Edmund Burke), Philipp Schweighauser supplements the dominant political readings of deception in early American studies with an aesthetic perspective. Schweighauser argues that deception in and through early American art constitutes as much a comment on eighteenth-century debates concerning the nature and function of art and sensuous perception as it responds to shifts in social and political organization. The art of the early republic in particular abounds in representations of deception: the villains of Gothic novels deceive their victims with visual and acoustic tricks; the ordinary citizens of picaresque novels are hoodwinked by quacks and illiterate but shrewd adventurers; and innocent sentimental heroines fall for their seducers’ eloquently voiced half-truths and lies. Yet, Schweighauser points out, deception happens not only within these novels but also through them. The fictions of Charles Brockden Brown, Hugh Henry Brackenridge, Susanna Rowson, Hannah Webster Foster, Tabitha Gilman Tenney, and Royall Tyler invent worlds that do not exist. Similarly, Charles Willson Peale’s and Raphaelle Peale’s trompe l’oeil paintings trick spectators into mistaking them for the real thing, and Patience Wright’s wax sculptures deceive (and disturb) viewers. Beautiful Deceptions examines how these and other artists of the era at times acknowledge art’s dues to other social realms?religion, morality, politics?but at other times insist on artists’ right to deceive their audiences, thus gesturing toward a more modern, autonomous notion of art that was only beginning to emerge in the eighteenth century.

Black Intellectuals

Black Intellectuals offers a centuries-deep analysis of black life, beginning with the arrival of Africans as slaves, when medicine men and conjurers held ancient, powerful wisdom. Author William Banks goes on to discuss prominent figures ranging from black pioneers like Alexander Crummell, Frederick Douglass, and Anna Cooper to intellectuals of the modern age such as W.E.B. Du Bois, Alain Locke, E. Franklin Frazier, Toni Morrison, and Henry Louis Gates, Jr. These and hundreds of other black scholars and artists?many of them interviewed for this volume?people an enlightened and imaginative landscape, fascinating for both its range and its diversity.

Who was Dr. Cronin and why did his death transfix nineteenth-century Chicago? Might it have anything to do with Clan na Gael, the Irish secret society? devoted to freeing Ireland from British rule by any means possible? Irish-born Patrick Henry Cronin was a well-respected Chicagoan: a successful physician, an active church member, a popular singer. He was also a member of Clan na Gael. Early in 1889, Cronin had a falling out with the Clan?s leader, Alexander Sullivan, and not long after that he disappeared. After weeks of feverish speculation in the papers, Cronin?s whereabouts became clear when his naked and beaten body was pulled from a north-side sewerat which point all hell broke loose in the media, the courts, and the streets. An extensive murder investigation ensued, and many secrets were eventually revealed in a complex tale of murder and justice in Irish Chicago. This is a gripping read, told in an accessible voice, which brings that murky time and place to life for a contemporary audience.

Brief Candles


Brief Candles


$18.15


Not since W.H. Auden’s Academic Graffiti has a poet of serious substance indulged so thoroughly in clerihews, those miniature (and often outrageously fictional) biographies invented just over 100 years ago by E.C. Bentley (1875-1956). In Brief Candles, Pulitzer Prize winner Henry Taylor takes on with hilarious irreverence people usually taken most seriously – members of the Supreme Court, poets laureate, literary theorists, Whitewater celebrities, and New Testament figures – demonstrating through 101 clerihews that one of the primary purposes of poetry is to have fun, even while craftsmanship remains paramount. Taylor’s shimmering wit and resourceful use of rhyme combine with whimsical illustrations by Heather Alexander to make these tiny playful pieces a rare treat for all readers. In times of tribulation, we can read the Book of Lamentations, or the Psalms, or just as likely, Henry Taylor’s clerihews. They are, as he calls them, Brief Candles, but they do give a satisfying light.

Closer to the Truth Than Any Fact

Although historians frequently use memoirs as source material, too often they confine such usage to the anecdotal, and there is little methodological literature regarding the genre?s possibilities and limitations. This study articulates an approach to using memoirs as instruments of historical understanding. Jennifer Jensen Wallach applies these principles to a body of memoirs about life in the American South during Jim Crow segregation, including works by Zora Neale Hurston, Willie Morris, Lillian Smith, Henry Louis Gates Jr, William Alexander Percy, and Richard Wright. Wallach argues that the field of autobiography studies, which is currently dominated by literary critics, needs a new theoretical framework that allows historians, too, to benefit from the interpretation of life writing. Her most provocative claim is that, due to the aesthetic power of literary language, skilled creative writers are uniquely positioned to capture the complexities of another time and another place. Through techniques such as metaphor and irony, memoirists collectively give their readers an empathetic understanding of life during the era of segregation. Although these reminiscences bear certain similarities, it becomes clear that the South as it was remembered by each is hardly the same place.
