Sivu 314 - An elementary Work, intended to instruct, in the sublime facts of Astronomy, those who are unacquainted with mathematical reasoning ; and to explain to them, in familiar language, the principal phenomena of the Heavens. The Lessons are illustrated by numerous Engravings.
Sivu 316 - Crusaders, are set before the view of the reader as they lived, thought, and acted. Their valour, their superstition, their ferocity, their honour, are displayed in as strong a light as the existing historical documents permit, and accurate descriptions and graphic illustrations exhibit the towns and scenery of Syria, and the other countries which were the theatre of the exploits of the Crusaders.
Sivu 236 - ... fly about. From these the king, with his pack of hounds, selected one for his own hunting, and pursued it long through devious ways with great agility on his horse, and with the dogs following. In the vicinity of Ceoddri were several abrupt and lofty precipices hanging over profound declivities. To one of these the stag came in his flight, and dashed himself down the immense depth with headlong ruin, all the dogs following and perishing with him.
Sivu 137 - Sabareth,) and which thou dost not yet cease to give to the people in' the Church ?" He answered, ' If ye will be washed in that wholesome font, wherein your father was, ye may likewise eat of this blessed bread, whereof he was a partaker ; but if ye contemn the lavatory of life, ye can in no wise taste the bread of life.
Sivu 133 - Lord, of thy mercy, let thy wrath and anger be turned away from this city, and from thy Holy Place, for we have sinned. Hallelujah.
