Excerpt from The Duties of British Christians in Relation to the Struggle in America: Being the Substance of a Discourse Delivered in Morice Square Baptist Chapel, Devonport, on the Evening of Lord's Day, 7th June, 1863 The slave trade and slavery were both English institu; tions. Let us not forget this undeniable fact in our judgment of American politicians. The African slave trade was not abolished in this country till 1807, after nearly a quarter of a century of agitation, and just 24 years after the United States had become an independent nation. Slavery in the English colonies was not annihilated until 1838, that is, 55 years after the achievement of American independence. Our hands have been free from the crime of the slave trade only 56 years, and of slavery only 25 years. Wm. Knibb' was cautioned by the Secretary of our Baptist Foreign Mis sion, before the Spa Fields meeting, against meddling with slavery, lest he should offend the Government, and put an end to our mission in Jamaica}? Slavery and the slave trade, then, are not the legitimate results of the democratic and republican constitution of America, but were both' British institutions. America had her slavery foisted on her by us. Hence it is but a righteous retribution that we should share in her aflictions in getting rid of this monj strous evil. Is our trade suffering? Are many of our mills closed Let us remember that our countryyis the author of the curse which is the cause of all this mischief. Slavery is the producer of the baptism in blood and woe through which America is passing, and we are the parents of hen slavery We have no room for indulgence in a pharisaical self-gratulation on the slavery question. In our territories We have only been free from this crime 25 years. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Stories and Poems An American gentleman lately addressed a letter to one of our London papers, assuring the English people that his countrymen properly appreciated the difference between Longfellow and Bret Harte. In the same way it might be said that Englishmen similarly recognise the difference between "Paradise Lost" and "Hudibras;" or, to come to our own times, between Macaulay and Dickens; between "Richelieu" and "London Assurance." To say this, is simply platitude. But it is impossible to avoid suspecting that the American writer had been annoyed with some disparaging remarks upon a style of Transatlantic literature now in vogue, of which Mr. Bret Harte is at the present time the Representative Man; and meant us to understand that such authors were properly depreciated. Let us hope this is not true, but that, on the contrary, the immense popularity which Mr. Bret Harte's prose and poetry have so quickly attained, and the extensive sale they have enjoyed, are a sure testimony that he is as fully valued by his own countrymen as by the British public, among whom his books have been received with such marked favour.

Since its publication almost forty years ago, The Interpretation of the Fourth Gospel has established itself as a classic of biblical scholarship. Regarded as a seminal text in Johannine studies, it provides a comprehensive and authoritative exposition of the major elements and themes contained in this more original and fascinating of ancient documents. The author reconstructs the background and intellectual milieu out of which the Fourth Gospel may be supposed to have taken shape. He then defines as precisely as possible the leading concepts that may be said to have determined the structure and arrangement of the book as we have it. The result is a massive achievement, and no serious student of the New Testament can afford to ignore this study's findings. The Interpretation of the Fourth Gospel represents the culmination of a lifetime's reflection on its subject by one of this century's most distinguished New Testament scholars, and will continue to stimulate and provoke generations of readers.

Florida 1928. In einer einzigen Nacht erzählt Janie ihrer besten Freundin Pheoby wie sie aufbrach, ein anderes Leben zu führen, den viel jüngeren Tea Cake traf, endlich das Glück fand, und was geschah, als der große Hurrikan kam ... Von ihrer Reise kehrt Janie als ein neuer Mensch zurück - und mit ihr alle, die ihre Geschichte hören. Der Klassiker aus den USA, zum 120. Geburtstag der Autorin neu übersetzt, gehört zu den schönsten, traurigsten und herzergreifendsten Liebesgeschichten, die je geschrieben wurden.
