What began as a parody of Samuel Richardson's Pamela became one of Henry Fielding's greatest works, and one of the earliest English novels. Joseph, at the age of ten, becomes the apprentice of a man named Thomas Booby. But as he grows into a handsome young man, he begins to catch the eyes of Lady Booby, Sir Thomas's wife, and her servant, Mrs. Slipslop. Shocked by their advances, chaste and innocent Joseph spurs their every attempt at seduction. Insulted by his continuous rejection, Lady Booby fires Joseph and turns him out into the streets. Freed from his lecherous employer, his sets off on a journey to visit his beloved Fanny Goodwill. On the way, his old tutor, the pious Parson Adams, becomes his travel companion. The road to Fanny is paved with adventure, and poor Joseph can't seem to shake his various suitors. All he wants to do is live a quiet life devoted to his love, but will he be stopped at every turn?

This carefully crafted ebook: “Rob Roy + The Heart of Midlothian (2 Unabridged and fully Illustrated Classics with Introductory Essay and Notes by Andrew Lang)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Rob Roy (1817) is a historical novel by Walter Scott. It is a tale of adventure in the 18th century, set in the Scottish highlands, whose hero is the legendary maverick outlaw Rob Roy Macgregor. Though Rob Roy is not the lead character, his personality and actions are key to the novel's development. The Heart of Midlothian is a novel of Scottish history by Sir Walter Scott, published in four volumes in 1818. It is often considered to be his finest novel. The Old Tolbooth prison in Edinburgh is called “the heart of Midlothian,” and there Effie Deans is held on charges of having murdered her illegitimate son. Her sister, Jeanie Deans, makes a dangerous journey through outlaw-infested regions to London to seek the queen’s pardon for Effie. Justice and Scottish Presbyterianism are discussed at length, and issues of conscience provide the novel’s themes. Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was a prolific Scottish novelist, poet, historian, and biographer who is often considered both the inventor and the greatest practitioner of the historical novel.

Der hier vorgelegte Text ist die erste Übersetzung aus dem Englischen in eine Fremdsprache, die jemals von Henry Fieldings Kurzroman „An Apology for the Life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews“, kurz „Shamela“ genannt, angefertigt wurde. Das Buch erschien im April 1741 als eine satirische Attacke auf Samuel Richardsons Briefroman „Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded“, der seit seiner ersten Veröffentlichung im November 1740 in England eine Furore machte, wie sie in der Literaturgeschiche wohl einmalig ist, und auch auf dem Festland hohe Wellen schlug.

This is the first detailed survey of the past five centuries of book illustration in England. It is divided into two parts: Part One is a comprehensive analysis of specific artists, books and illustrations and covers the anonymous work in books by leading printers before 1600 and then the work of over 200 illustrators up to 1976; Part Two, a Catalogue of Illustrations and Books, lists 2,700 selected entries of English illustrations and includes 200 reproductions, chosen to illustrate the discussion.Edward Hodnett gives a general impression of each artist's work, describes the subject-matter of the designs, notes their relation to other illustrations, and attempts to reach an estimate of the artist's relative achievement as an interpretive illustrator. The book also features bibliographies and a comprehensive, alphabetical index of illustrators, printers, booksellers, presses, and engravers.

Apple, Audi, Braun oder Samsung machen es vor: Gutes Design ist heute eine kritische Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Produkte. Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte. Don Norman fordert ein Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Technologie mit dem Ziel, dass Designer und Produktentwickler die Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Handlungsweisen der Nutzer in den Vordergrund stellen und Designs an diesen angepasst werden. The Design of Everyday Things ist eine informative und spannende Einführung für Designer, Marketer, Produktentwickler und für alle an gutem Design interessierten Menschen. Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois.
