These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Notes and Queries, Vol. V, Number 132, May 8, 1852 — A Medium of Inter-communication for Literary Men, Artists, — Antiquaries, Genealogists, etc.:Look inside the book: This would be of no great consequence had it been confined to themselves; but its being transferred to an English publication not only tends to mislead many persons on this side, but enables the Americans to refer with confidence to it, as an admission of their victory on the part of the British; and no one who remembers the use they made, on the Oregon Question, of a similarly occasioned error in one of the Society’s globes, can doubt that our Transatlantic friends would make the most of this trifling affair in confirmation of their claims to the victory. …Italy, Turkey, and maps of these five parts given, the Northern Countries at three periods, the British Isles at four ditto, and the others at seven periods, as above, we should require twenty-eight maps (not too great a number, as the King’s College Modern Atlas, of a convenient size, has twenty-five), which if they contained names of places as closely packed as the King’s College Atlas, and laid down from Spruner, or some other trustworthy authority, would soon, it may be said without much foresight, be in the hands of so many readers of history, as to answer thoroughly to any bookseller undertaking to bring them out.

Bohte, who specialized in classics; and before that (though not immediately before) they had been the home of Thomas de Quincey.

There is also a volume on oil and insecurityThere are also two volumes on Africa, the site of most of the world’s wars during the period.The IISS has obviously made a particular contribution to the understanding of military strategy, and this is reflected with material on topics such as urban and guerrilla warfare, nuclear deterrence and the role of information in modern warfare.

These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Great Ghost Stories:Look inside the book: I was impatient to examine the letters; and while I read them, my servant opened a little box in which he had deposited the weapons I had ordered him to bring; took them out, placed them on a table close at my bed-head, and he occupied himself in soothing the dog, who, however, seemed to heed him very little. …’That such a power might extend over the dead-that is, over certain thoughts and memories that the dead may still retain-and compel, not that which ought properly to be called the Soul, and which is far beyond human reach, but rather a phantom of what has been most earth-stained on earth to make itself apparent to our senses-is a very ancient though obsolete theory, upon which I will hazard no opinion.
From a beautiful antique that gives its owner a show he’d rather forget, to ‘ghost detective’ whose exorcism goes horribly wrong and a sinister masked ball which seems to have one too many guests, these ghost stories of supernatural terror are guaranteed to make you shiver, thrill and look under the bed tonight. From rural England to colonial India, in murky haunted mansions and under modern electric lighting, these master storytellers — some of the best writers in the English language — unfold spinetinglers which pull back the veil of everyday life to reveal the nightmares which lurk just out of sight. They are lessons in ingenuity and surprise, sometimes building slowly to a chilling climax, sometimes springing horror on you from the utterly banal. And as you’d expect from these writers, the stories are more than simply frightening — they’re also disquieting exposures of mortality, loneliness and the human capacity for both evil and remorse.We wish you pleasant dreams.Contains ghost stories by: Ruth Rendell, M. R. James, Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, E. F. Benson, E. Nesbit, Saki, W. W. Jacobs, W. F. Harvey, Hugh Walpole, Chico Kidd and LP Hartley.
