"In this startling reconsideration of the Victorians and their worlds, the author sheds light into the dark corners of an age notorious for its smug prudery and repressive official consciousness, exposing a bizarre demimonde where violence and brutality reigned at the heart of the burgeoning British Empire. A dark world mirrored not only in the considerable newspaper coverage of the most shocking criminal cases of the day, but in the so-called "Sensation" novels which flourished during the 1850s and 1860s as well." 10.00

Dorset Press 1990 0880295988 Hardcover in DJ. Good Good Octavo 
223 pp "This remarkable book chronicles the momentous events of the Fourth Crusade which altered the face of the world. It brings to life the men and their times, the background of the Crusade and its actual chronology, the raising of the Crusade in France and its movement across Europe to Venice. It was in Venice that treacherous dealings embroiled it in one of the most despicable acts in human history and left Eastern Europe open to the eventual Turkish conquest, a conquest which Constantinople had withstood for nine hundred years. In addition, the Crusade set the stage for the later Balkan problem and the inevitable division of Eastern and Western Europe which survives to this day. Contrary to most Western opinion, it also began the westward movement of artistic influence which culminated in the Renaissance. "

Tudor 1947 Hardcover. Good Octavo 
304 pp "This is a book for home connoisseurs who desire to know about their own treasures and the relics connecting them with good old families who were prosperous in the 18th century and earlier. Special prominence is given to silver because it is the metal mostly desired by the amateur collector, but Pewter and Sheffield Plate are also considered in this book in order to provide the reader with handy chapters of reference and to some extent explain the overlapping of domestic metal work of other materials and composite metals. This volume is a study of domestic silver as well as a review of earlier examples and those historic records of past peoples and ages almost forgotten, in which the beginnings of craftsmanship and commerce are found.".

My friends, however, urged their request, and Mr. Froude's lectures took a tone so damaging at once to the Irish character, and so bitterly hostile to the Catholic religion, that I felt justified in attempting to answer him in defense of my faith and my country."
