Yale Studies in English, volume 55. "When Old English was a spoken language there was no scholarship, in the strict sense. How andwhen did the study of the language and literature of Old English begin and what obstacles did it meet in its development? The first old English book was published in 1566 and the first professorship of the language in an English university was established in 1795. This study has considerably wider implications than its title might imply. It connects a literary movement ofa peculiar kind with the general political and religious history of Englan d. In a broader sense, it touches upon all men - in what are they interested, and why, at a given time? how do they learn? how do they build upon the past?" - from the dj.

"When Lord Nelson was born 250 years ago, th e navy for which he sacrificed his life depended on one thing above all else -- the thousands of sailors and marines who manned the great wind-poweredwooden warships. These ordinary men were drawn -- often unwillingly -- fro m all over Britain and beyond, and they made the Royal Navy invincible through skill, courage and sheer determination. 'Jack Tar' gives these forgotten men a voice in an enthralling picture of what their life was really like during this age of sail. Letters, diaries and other manuscripts reveal how they lived, worked, fought and died on board the warships. Their emotions and experiences are explored, from the dread of press-gangs and shipwreck, to the exhilaration of battle, grog, prize-money and prostitutes." - from the rear cover. Very good. 12.50

Index. 8vo, blue paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. "From its very first page, The War for All the Oceans is an adventure story—a superb account of the naval war thatlasted from Napoleon's seizure of power in 1798 to the War of 1811 with th e United States. Most naval histories stop at Nelson's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.. Yet the Royal Navy took on almost every other nationthat had a rival fleet: the French, Spanish, Dutch, Danes, Russians, Turks and Ameri­cans. Shipping routes all over the world were guarded to ensure that trade with Britain was not interrupted, and, as Napoleon lost his empire, Britain formed solid, imperial foundations—all because the British navygained control of the oceans. Roy and Lesley Adkins bring this naval war t o life, writing about its heroes, ship maneuvers and shipboard life with equal relish. They paint a brilliant picture of the large fleet actions of the war, such as the battles of the Nile and Copenhagen; duels between pairs of ships, such as the HMS Shannon and USS Chesapeake; and combined naval and army operations like the disas­trous Walcheren expedition. They provide aringside seat to the earliest attacks with torpedoes and rock­ets and a fr esh look at our own country in a brilliant rendering of the War of 1811, fought in our nation's infancy. As in Nelson's Trafalgar, the Adkinses delight in the details, drawing vivid portraits of the sailors as well as the press-gangs, prostitutes and spies who populated this epic war." - from the dj. Underlining in pen on page 126, else very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00
