Clarissa, the History of a Young Lady, Volume 6, 7, 8 and 9

Clarissa, or, the History of a Young Lady is an epistolary novel by Samuel Richardson, published in 1748. It tells the tragic story of a heroine whose quest for virtue is continually thwarted by her family, and is one of the longest novels in the English language. Samuel Richardson (1689 - 1761) was an 18th-century English writer and printer. He is best known for his Clarissa: Or the History of a Young Lady (1748). Clarissa Harlowe, the tragic heroine of Clarissa, is a beautiful and virtuous young lady whose family has become wealthy only recently and now desires to become part of the aristocracy. Their original plan was to concentrate the wealth and lands of the Harlowes into the possession of Clarissa's brother James Harlowe, whose wealth and political power will lead to his being granted a title. Clarissa's grandfather leaves her a substantial piece of property upon his death, and a new route to the nobility opens through Clarissa marrying Robert Lovelace, heir to an earldom. James's response is to provoke a duel with Lovelace, who is seen thereafter as the family's enemy. James also proposes that Clarissa marry Roger Solmes, who is willing to trade properties with James to concentrate James's holdings and speed his becoming Lord Harlowe. The family agrees and attempts to force Clarissa to marry Solmes, whom she finds physically disgusting as well as boorish. In this book: Clarissa, the History of a Young Lady Volume 6, 7, 8 and 9

The Secret Service, the Field, the Dungeon, and the Escape (Expanded, Annotated)

"In view of the author's rich material, his well-known trustworthiness, and graphic descriptive powers, the publishers feel justified in predicting a work of unusual interest, containing more of the fact, incident, and romance of the war than any other which has yet appeared." NEW YORK TIMES, April 1865The remarkable Civil War career of famous New York "Tribune" journalist, Albert D. Richardson, was packed with more action, intrigue, and danger than many of his colleagues. Like war correspondents today, Richardson reported from where the shells were flying and men were dying.He was also a Union spy.He reported from the south before the war and from "Bleeding Kansas" in the fifties. He met with and discussed the war with Abraham Lincoln before heading to Vicksburg. That's all here in his classic book.And in 1863, Richardson and the other famous "Tribune" correspondent, Junius Browne, were captured while trying to run the Confederate batteries protecting the river at Vicksburg. They spent 20 months in harrowing prison conditions until their dramatic and dangerous escape through enemy territory.It's a story that should be known by every American. Richardson aspired to great literary writing but along with the danger, there is plenty of wonderful humor.Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever.For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers, tablets, and smartphones.?Be sure to LOOK INSIDE by clicking the cover above or download a sample.
