Saint Athanasius

Saint Athanasius by F. A. Forbes

Saint Athanasius by F. A. Forbes

A short and rather old fashioned biography a great saint. Don’t expect subtlety; it’s unapologetic hagiography. The saint is presented as a figure of pristine brilliance, courage and integrity and his persecutors as conniving villains. But to those who appreciate what was at stake in the controversy, Athanasius is indeed a God-sent hero. This is an informative, if quaint, introduction to a fascinating figure in history.

Famous Assassinations of History

Famous Assassinations of History by Francis Johnson

Famous Assassinations of History by Francis Johnson

It has been the object of the writer to make each of these “famous assassinations” the central scene of a picture in which the political, religious, or national features of the epoch in which the assassination occurred are portrayed with historical fidelity and strict impartiality…. Only those assassinations have been included which either had an important and political bearing on the world, or on the nation immediately affected, or which left a profound, and, it would seem, indelible impression on the imagination of contemporaries and posterity.

Humour of the North

Humour of the North by Lawrence J. Burpee

Humour of the North by Lawrence J. Burpee

Some day an enterprising editor may find time to glean from the whole field of Canadian literature a representative collection of wit and humor. . . . The present little collection obviously makes no such ambitious claim. It embraces, however, what are believed to be representative examples of the work of some of our better-known writers, many of which will no doubt be quite familiar to Canadian readers, but perhaps none the less welcome on that account.
