Сторінка 509 - THE GLACIERS OF THE ALPS : being a Narrative of Excursions and Ascents. An Account of the Origin and Phenomena of Glaciers, and an Exposition of the Physical Principles to which they are related.
Сторінка 457 - They have the pale tint of flowers that blossomed in too retired a shade, — the coolness of a meditative habit, which diffuses itself through the feeling and observation of every sketch.

This wide national life...
Сторінка 510 - Footfalls on the Boundary of Another World. With narrative Illustrations, by ROBERT DALE OWEN. Post 8vo, Js. 6d. Spiritualism. — Debatable Land between this World and the Next.
Сторінка 124 - In these critical moments, how salutary will be the interference of some temperate and respectable body of citizens, in order to check the misguided career, and to suspend the blow meditated by the people against themselves, until reason, justice, and truth can regain their authority over the public mind...
