This early work by Wilkie Collins was originally published in 1856. Born in Marylebone, London in 1824, Collins' family enrolled him at the Maida Hill Academy in 1835, but then took him to France and Italy with them between 1836 and 1838. Returning to England, Collins attended Cole's boarding school, and completed his education in 1841, after which he was apprenticed to the tea merchants Antrobus & Co. in the Strand. In 1846, Collins became a law student at Lincoln's Inn, and was called to the bar in 1851, although he never practiced. It was in 1848, a year after the death of his father, that he published his first book, The Memoirs of the Life of William Collins, Esq., R.A., to good reviews. The 1860s saw Collins' creative high-point, and it was during this decade that he achieved fame and critical acclaim, with his four major novels, The Woman in White (1860), No Name (1862), Armadale (1866) and The Moonstone (1868). The Moonstone, meanwhile is seen by many as the first true detective novel - T. S. Eliot called it 'the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels...in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe.' Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.

Winner of the United Kingdom Literacy Association's Author Award 2011 for its contribution to extending children's literacy. Praise for the book: 'This book is about making readers. A compact summary of its contents would not do it justice. It is the accountof a life's work and it deserves thanks and readers. *****'. - Margaret Meek, Books for Keeps on-line, Number 185, November 2010. 'This book is a cornucopia of varied pleasures, offering something for all tastes, presented with an awareness of the complexities of the field and communicated with commitment, enthusiasm and deep knowledge'. - Eve Bearne, English 4-11, the primary school journal of The English Association, Number 42, Summer 2011.  Choosing and Using Fiction and Non-Fiction 3-11 is a guide to the many kinds of text we want children to encounter, use and enjoy during their nursery and primary school years. So children’s non-fiction literature – including autobiography, biography, information and reference texts – is given equal status with fiction – nursery rhymes, picturebooks, novels, traditional tales, playscripts and poetry. The author addresses important issues and allows the voices of teachers, reviewers and children to be heard. The book supports teachers as they help children on their journey to becoming insightful and critical readers of non-fiction and sensitive and reflective readers of fiction.It alsocontains suggestions for practice which are in the spirit of the more flexible and creative approach to learning towards which primary schools are moving. It includes: help on using criteria to select quality texts of all kinds; annotated booklists for each kind of text for different age groups; suggestions for keeping a balance between print and screen-based texts; case studies showing teachers and children using texts in interesting and imaginative ways to support learning in English lessons and across the curriculum; advice on developing children’s visual and multimodal literacy; guidance on using the school library and embedding study skills in children’s wider purposes and learning; critiques of key theoretical perspectives and research projects. Although the main readership will be primary and student teachers, it is hoped that the book will be of interest and use to anyone concerned with the role of texts in children’s learning.

'The market never ceases to befuddle and beguile. These two venerable works are fixtures on the short lists for most valuable books on the securities markets, and investors continue to cherish them.' -From the Introduction by Martin S. Fridson Managing Director, Merrill Lynch & Co. Author of Investment Illusions Exploring the sometimes hilarious, sometimes devastating impact of crowd behavior and trading trickery on the financial markets, this book brilliantly combines two all-time investment classics. Extraordinary Popular Delusions and Confusión de Confusiones take us from Tulipmania in 1634-when tulips actually traded at a higher price than gold-to the South Sea 'bubble' of 1720, and beyond. Securities analyst and author Martin Fridson guides you on a quirky, entertaining, and intriguing journey back through time. Chosen by the Financial Times as Two of the Ten Best Books Ever Written on Investment Critical Praise. 'This is the most important book ever written about crowd psychology and, by extension, about financial markets. A serious student of the markets and even anyone interested in the extremes of human behavior should read this book!' -Ron Insana, CNBC 'In combining 'Extraordinary' with 'Confusion,' the result is not extraordinary confusion. Instead, with clarity, the book sears into modern investor minds the dangers of following the crowd.' -Greg Heberlein, The Seattle Times 'You will see between its staid lines (written in ye olde English and as ponderable as Buddha's navel) that, despite what the media says, nothing really important has changed in the financial markets in centuries.' -Kenneth L. Fisher, Forbes

“True stories are the way we have always communicated—culturally, professionally, and personally—from cave drawings to computers and the Internet. Books, blogs, dialogues, and debates all rely on the stories we tell and how effectively we tell them. This is why Jason Griffith’s book is so useful and important: it stresses the necessity of narrative/creative nonfiction and provides teachers and their students with the theory and the craft that will help them use true stories to inform and inspire themselves and others.” –Lee Gutkind,Editor and Founder, Creative Nonfiction Magazine 'From Me to We will serve as a guide for teachers and teacher educators who recognize the value of narrative nonfiction but aren’t sure how to incorporate it into their current curriculum.Jason unpacks why and how to invite narrative nonfiction reading and writing into English language arts and humanities classrooms in a compelling and friendly manner. All who read this book will realize the exciting possibilities.” –Shanetia Clark, Associate Professor of Literacy, Salisbury University, Maryland “Drawing on the rich tradition of student-centered pedagogy, From Me to We: Using Narrative Nonfiction to Broaden Student Perspectives makes the much-needed assertion that our secondary English curriculum has room to grow to be more responsive to our students, new standards, and trends in media and publishing. In this thoughtful debut, Jason Griffith provides a wealth of accessible strategies for using narrative nonfiction to deepen student experiences with reading and writing in heartfelt and insightful ways.” –Christopher Lehman, Founding Director of The Educator Collaborative “As a veteran teacher and impeccable scholar, Jason Griffith brings a wealth of experience to the table. The heart of this book resides in Griffith’s synthesis of two sides of the literacy coin, moving from critical reading to critical writing that both tells a story and invites the reader to share in the meaning-making. The whole package is here, a complete toolkit, including the key standards, grade-appropriate mentor texts, student samples, and step-by-step lesson scaffolding. All English language arts teachers should have this book in their professional libraries.“--James Blasingame, Professor of English, Arizona State University 'From Me to We is an innovative and invaluable resource. It will help teachers integrate nonfiction reading and writing units that lead students to understand how their stories fit into the beautiful patchwork of humanity that is our world. This profoundly satisfying resource offers lessons, activities, and guidance for new and veteran teachers who are passionate about helping students find their voice. Griffith’s genuine enthusiasm for his students and devotion to his craft are woven into every page.'--Monica Boone-Rice, 7th Grade English Teacher, Carlisle Area School District, Carlisle PA

Emil Pirchan

It is the proverbial fairy tale about the discovery in the attic. The Setting: a detached house in Zurich. Object: a large number of old boxes. Content: the estate of a man who was a universal artist: first an architect, then interior designer, commercial artist, poster artist, production designer, as well as of course, an illustrator, painter, author ¬– and not just as a cheerful dilettante, but a recognized, even famous representative of his disciplines. The talk is of Emil Pirchan (1884-1957) who did so many things rapidly one after another but also simultaneously, so that the set art- and theater- history was not able to follow and the official cultural life eventually left it at naming an alleyway after him. The discovery in the attic gave Beat Steffan, the grandchild of the artist, reason to explore Emil Pirchan’s creative world. Parts of the discovery are sketchbooks, graphics, drafts of stage decorations, biographical material, a considerable library. Moreover, it was found that a large stock was at the theater museum of Vienna, alongside relevant collections of posters at the museum of Munich and at the Folkwang museum in Essen. Over the last two years a big team of authors undertook it to organize, file, sift and edit the material. The result is a volume that makes the whole era of the German Austria- Czech cultural history come alive again in unforeseen multifacetedness. More than 300 mostly unknown illustrations serve for this purpose as well as contributions from acknowledged experts of all disciplines Pirchan was active in. The volume is published in a German and in an English edition and it also contains comprehensive registers about Pirchan’s work such as his graphics, posters, set decorations, books and essays. Therefore, for the foreseeable future the publication will be the relevant work of reference of the artist. Emil Pirchan (1884-1957), born in Brno, started his artistic career as a student of the famous Viennese art nouveau architect Otto Wagner, then switched to interior design. Soon he broadened his field onto commercial art with the focus on poster art and in 1913 he founded a school in Munich for applied art and set decoration whose promising development got interrupted by the First World War. As the head of stage design at the Bavarian State Theatre Pirchan caused a sensation with revolutionary expressionistic stage decorations; from 1921 on, his collaboration with Leopold Jessner in Berlin created epochal stagings of contemporary and classical plays. In 1930 Pirchan went to Prague due to the economic crisis, just before he was appointed professor at the academy of fine arts in Vienna in 1936. During the time of National Socialism he increasingly withdrew into writing and published diverse monographs (among them the first comprehensive volume about Gustav Klimt) and relevant works about theatre arts and dance (inter alia, “Harald Kreutzberg”, 1941). Lastly, the time after the Second World War was characterized by teaching.

George Santayana′s Marginalia, a Critical...

In his essay 'Imagination,' George Santayana writes, 'There are books in which the footnotes, or the comments scrawled by some reader's hand in the margins, may be more interesting than the text.' Santayana himself was an inveterate maker of notes in the margins of his books, writing (although neatly, never scrawling) comments that illuminate, contest, or interestingly expand the author's thought. These volumes offer a selection of Santayana's marginalia, transcribed from books in his personal library. These notes give the reader an unusual perspective on Santayana's life and work. He is by turns critical (often), approving (seldom), literary, slangy, frivolous, and even spiteful. The notes show his humor, his occasional outcry at a writer's folly, his concern for the niceties of English prose and the placing of Greek accent marks. These two volumes list alphabetically by author all the books extant that belonged to Santayana, reproducing a selection of his annotations intended to be of use to the reader or student of Santayana's thought, his art, and his life. Each entry includes a headnote with the author's name, the title of the work, brief publication information, and the library location of the book. Not all marginalia from a given text is included; the notes have been selected for content and style. [cut last sentence; cut entire paragraph if nec.] Santayana, often living in solitude, spent a great deal of his time talking to, and talking back to, a wonderful miscellany of writers, from Spinoza to Kant to J. S. Mill to Bertrand Russell. These notes document those conversations.
