Musser takes us into the long-forgotten world of early cinema--unexpectedly sophisticated and yet radically different from current movie-making. Focusing on Edwin S. Porter, most often remembered as the producer of The Great Train Robbery, Musser situates Porter's achievements within the vibrant context of turn-of-the-century popular culture and the commercial pragmatics of the Edison Manufacturing Company--the leading American film-producing entity from 1894 to 1908. Musser takes us into the long-forgotten world of early cinema--unexpectedly sophisticated and yet radically different from curr

Immensely popular in the nineteenth-century, Dr. Chase's Recipes...went through dozens of editions and was believed to have sold over four million copies (second only to the Bible in total sales). This book was a vital reference to young Americans, particularly homesteaders, who depended upon it for information on health, diet, cooking, animal husbandry, household hints, and general how-to's. Containing recipes for both food and household products, delivered in a warm, chatty tone, this book was, and still is, a comprehensive source of information that deserves to be read and remembered.

While memory is one of the most fascinating faculties of consciousness, it is also one of the most mysterious. Is it memory--our own marvelous personal computer or data base--that brings us the intense feelings prompted by a certain object or situation?Drawing on an expansive array of sources, from microbiology to cosmology, Ovid to Proust, Egyptology to the cinema, Philip Kuberski leads us on a brave and beguiling exploration of memory. He enables us to see it as a worldly process in which individuals both remember and are remembered, all in a network of associations that join our bodies, per

However, during that period of amnesia she enjoyed many new relationships.As old faces, places and situations dredge up scores of memories (some pleasant and others spine-chilling) new faces, places and situations come tumbling into her life. At what seems to her to be lightening speed she continues to experience the twists and turns, detours and speed bumps that threaten to obstruct her progress. Although her faith occasionally wavers

Popular American historian Benson J. Lossing was a prolific writer whose "Biographical Sketches of the Signers of the Declaration of American Independence" reads like a Who's Who of the country's earliest patriots. It reveals concise details about the more than fifty elected delegates, representing all thirteen colonies, who signed one of the most famous documents in American history. From Thomas Jefferson and John Hancock to less-remembered but equally important personages like Richard Henry Lee and Robert Morris, Lossing offers interesting facts and his own portrait engravings of the individ
