Excerpt from Ireland the Outpost Ireland has lain in the path of great migrations, from Berber Africa, from the mouths of Frisian rivers, from the viks and fjords of the sterner northlands. From her own drowned valleys, the harbours that knew the ships of Gades and of Gaul, her people have moved westward and linked the Old world with the new. At times she catches the light that floods across from Europe, and adds to its brightness the ardent glow of her response. At times the seawmist gathers along her mountain-barriers, and she sinks back into the haze of the Atlantic, elusive' About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Fallen Stuarts Out of the chaos of Europe had emerged first the power of the House of Hapsburg, and then that of the House of Bourbon. The Thirty Years' War had made France an arbiter in Europe, and the Old rivalry of Louis XI and Charles the Bold was destined to revive under new conditions. The peace of 1648 settled the relations between France and the German House of Hapsburg. The bounds of the two were laid down, but between them lay a number of sovereign princes, who might be used by either against the other. In 1659 the rivalry of the two royal lines was ended by the alliance of Louis XIV with Maria Theresa, the Infanta, who renounced her claims to the Spanish throne. The mutual relations of these royal lines is the key to the events that followed. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Happy Irish It is a climax, a coincidence, luminous with meaning for mankind. Ireland enters upon the strewn and trembling stage of British politics with a significance, not only for England, not only for the British Empire, but for all the foremost nations of the earth now te garding each other from the outposts of civilization, from the fortified and haunted frontiers of progress, with a dolorous apprehension. She does not arraign the ambitions of these civilized nations - many of whom learned the alphabet of their first pure culture from her own heroic sons - but she asks to disentangle herself from the confusions of an industrialism, the violence of a materialism, and the brutalizing ugliness of a false civilization, into which she has been dragged.

Excerpt from Letters of Travel Mam Later the same word, pursued on the same principle as that blessed one Mesopotamia, led me to and through Emerson, up to his poem on the peak itself - the wise old giant busy with his sky affairs, ' who makes us sane and sober and free from little things if we trust him. So Monadnock came to mean everything that was helpful, healing, and full of quiet, and when I saw him half across New Hampshire he did not fail. In that utter stillness a hemlock bough, overweighted with snow, came down a foot or two with a tired little sigh the snow slid off and the little branch flew nodding back to its fellows.

Excerpt from Stories by English Authors It would not become me to know precisely when I began to think William an ingrate, but I date his lapse from the evening when he brought me oysters. I detest oysters, and no one knew it better than William. He has agreed with me that he could not understand any gentleman's liking them. Between me and a certain member who smacks his lips twelve times to a dozen of them William knew I liked a screen to be placed until we had reached the soup, and yet he gave me the oysters and the other man my sardine. Both the other member and I called quickly for brandy and the head waiter. To do William justice, he shook, but never can I forget his audacious explanation.

Excerpt from The Drums of the Fore and Aft The British soldier is not altogether to be blamed for occasional lapses; but this verdict he should not know. A moderately intelligent general will waste six months in mastering the craft of the particular war that he may be waging; a colonel may utterly misunderstand the capacity of his regiment for three months after it has taken the field; and even a company commander may err and be deceived as to the temper and temperament of his own handful; where fore the soldier, and the soldier of to-day more particularly, should not be blamed for falling back. He should be shot or hanged afterwards - pour encourager les autres - but he should not be vilified in newspapers, for that is want of tact and waste of space.
