  • The Eyes of Max Carrados (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

    Karton Kapak
    Max Carrados is one of the most unusual detectives in all fiction. He is blind - and yet he has developed his other faculties to such an amazing degree that they more than compensate for his lack of sight.'Lose one sense and the others, touch, taste, smell, hearing improve...with a little dedicated training.' Carrados can read a newspaper headline with the touch of his fingers, detect a man wearing a false moustache because 'he carries a five yard aura of spirit gum' and shoot a villain by aiming at the sound of his beating heart. Assisted by his sharp-eyed manservant, Parker, Carrados is the mystery-solver par excellence. Here is a collection of the best of Max Carrados, a set of stories featuring a series of baffling puzzles to challenge the greatest of detectives. They are written by Ernest Bramah with great wit, style and panache. This is vintage crime fiction at its best.

  • Irish Ghost Stories (Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)

    Karton Kapak
    Selected by Rosemary Gray. When you think of Irish writers of supernatural tales, then the names Sheridan Le Fanu and Bram Stoker will figure prominently, but this does no more than scratch the surface of a rich vein of chilling and macabre fiction to be found on the Emerald Isle. This rich and diverse selection showcases some of the very best.

  • The Jungle Book

    Karton Kapak
    The Jungle Book introduces Mowgli, the human foundling adopted by a family of wolves. It tells of the enmity between him and the tiger Shere Khan, who killed Mowgli's parents, and of the friendship between the man-cub and Bagheera, the black panther, and Baloo, the sleepy brown bear, who instructs Mowgli in the Laws of the Jungle. The Second Jungle Book contains some of the most thrilling of the Mowgli stories. It includes Red Dog, in which Mowgli forms an unlikely alliance with the python Kaa, How Fear Came and Letting in the Jungle as well as The Spring Running, which brings Mowgli to manhood and the realisation that he must leave Bagheera, Baloo and his other friends for the world of man.

  • Animal Farm

    Animal Farm

    Karton Kapak
    It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine,’ wrote Orwell for the first edition of Animal Farm in 1945. Orwell wrote the novel at the end of 1943, but it almost remained unpublished. Its savage attack on Stalin, at that time Britain’s ally, led to the book being refused by publisher after publisher. Orwell’s simple, tragic fable, telling what happens when the animals drive out Mr Jones and attempt to run the farm themselves, has since become a world famous classic.

  • Thomas Hardy 1840-1928

    Karton Kapak
    This illustrated account of Thomas Hardy's life accompanies a British Library exhibition of the same title celebrating the 150th anniversary of his birth. The success of "Under the Greenwood Tree" in 1872 encouraged Hardy to abandon his first career as an architect for full-time writing, and over the next quarter-century he went on to create some of the best-known classic novels in English literature. Distressed and disillusioned by the controversy surrounding his last novel, "Jude the Obscure", he returned to his first love, poetry, and, by the time of his death in 1928 he was renowned as one of the most distinguished literary figures of the 19th and 20th centuries. Here, Elizabeth James traces the development and landmarks of Hardy's long career, discussing the many facets of his talent as they are reflected in his literary works. The illustrations are drawn from autograph manuscripts of Hardy's works, letters to his publisher and signed first editions in the Library's collections, as well as drawings, architectural plans and portraits.

  • The Children of the New Forest

    Karton Kapak
    Cavalier and Roundhead battle it out in the turbulent setting of the English Civil War and provide the background for this classic tale of four orphans as they face adversity, survival in the forest, reconciliation and eventual forgiveness. This is the first enduring historical novel for children, which conjures up as much magic today as it did on first publication. The freedom from adult constraint allied with the necessary disciplines to survive in a hostile world make for a gripping read.

  • Poésies

    Karton Kapak
    En 1896, une foule d'amis, d'écrivains et de prostituées accompagne le cercueil du Verlaine, sacré "Prince des poètes ", au cimetière des Batignolles. Plus d'un siècle plus tard, on écoute encore "la chanson bien douce" qui transfigure une vie de vagabondage, de misère, d'absinthe et de déchéance, souvent sauvée par l'humilité et la foi. Le poète maudit fascine encore. Des "Fêtes galantes" aux "Romances saurs paroles", comment une telle musique, de telles harmonies peuvent-elles surgir d'une destinée si incohérente? "Va mon Livre, où le hasard te mène ", disait-il dans les poèmes saturniens, par les chemins de la tendresse et de la volupté, du vice et de la prison, du mysticisme et de l'Art.
