This volume is part of the definitive edition of letters written by and to Charles Darwin, the most celebrated naturalist of the nineteenth century. Notes and appendixes put these fascinating and wide-ranging letters in context, making the letters accessible to both scholars and general readers. Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world, and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. The letters are published chronologically: volume 24 includes letters from 1876, the year in which Darwin published Cross and Self Fertilisation in the Vegetable Kingdom, and started writing Forms of Flowers. In 1876, Darwin's daughter-in-law, Amy, died shortly after giving birth to a son, Bernard Darwin, an event that devastated the family. The volume includes a supplement of 182 letters from earlier years, including a newly discovered collection of letters from William Darwin, Darwin's eldest son.

Excerpt from Harper's New Monthly Magazine, 1869, Vol. 24 About the middle of the sixth century a tribe of Scythian Tartars, from the banks of the Irtish, commenced their depredations. Rapidly they subjugated and absorbed other tribes. In the course of a few ages they overran all of Egypt and all of Asia Minor, and established the most energetic and bloody military despotism earth has ever known. Early in the fourteenth century these semi-barbarians could rally beneath their banners a far more powerful army than any nation in Christendom could raise. The Turks now resolved to bring all Europe under their sway, and all Europe was appalled by the menace. They took possession of the Hellespont and the Bosphorus, crossed the Straits, and with blood-dripping cimeters overran Greece. Mercilessly the Christians were massacred - the boys and the girls only being reserved as slaves, to be trained in the Moslem faith and to serve in the harems and the armies. In April, 1453, Mohammed II., with a land army of 300,000 men and a fleet of 600 vessels, laid siege to Constantinople. For fifty-three days the storm of war beat, without cessation, upon the doomed city; and then the Turks, rushing through the breaches, sword in hand, in a few hours cut down 60, 000 of the helpless inhabitants. In this terrific drama scenes were enacted too harrowing for recital, and which could not have been exceeded by an army of fiends newly arrived from Pandemonium. Thus fell the Greek empire. The crescent was unfurled proudly from the domes of Constantinople, Athens, and Corinth; and throughout the whole of the Peloponnesus the head of the Christian was crushed by the heel of the Turk. The conqueror, Mohammed II., boasting that he would feed his horse from the altar of St. Peter's, in Rome, crossed the Adriatic to the shores of Italy, took Otranto, and intrenching his army there, prepared, by the energies of fire and sword, to bring the whole of the Italian peninsula into subjection to his sway. The sudden death of this stern conqueror rescued Italy from the menace, and gave a brief respite to the remainder of Christendom. Soon again the war was renewed. For two centuries wave after wave of Moslem invasion rolled up the Danube; and the plains of Transylvania and Hungary were but a constant battle-field, where Christian and Turk met in deadly strife. About the year 1560 the Turks, then in possession of a large part of Hungary, collected an immense army at Belgrade, and commenced their march for the assault of Vienna. It was green and leafy June, and the banks of the Danube, luxuriant in their summer foliage, were decorated with unsurpassing loveliness. For many days the turbaned and bannered host, beneath sunny skies and through flowery fields, sauntered along, encountering no foe. War seemed but the pastime of a gala day. Silken banners embroidered with gold floated on the breeze. Arabian chargers, gorgeously caparisoned, proudly pranced beneath their riders cased in glittering steel. Music from multitudinous bands enlivened the march. A fleet of barges, decorated in the highest style of Oriental art, co-Arered the stream, impelled by sails when the wind favored, and urged by rowers when the wind was adverse. Each night the tents were spread upon the rivers banks, and a city for more than a hundred thousand inhabitants rose as by magic, with its grassy streets, and squares, and thronging population brilliant with all he regalia of war. As a fairy vision the city rose in the rays of the declining sun. As a phantasy of night it disappeared in the earliest dawn of the morning, and the dazzling host pressed on. But the demon of war, though with music and acclaim, always leads his legions to the black day of storm and woe. The Turks had ascended the Danube about 150 miles, when they came to Zigeth, a small island which occupied the centre of the stream and effectually commanded both banks. Here the Austrians had e

Excerpt from Harper's New Monthly Magazine, Vol. 24: January, 1862 During the summer of 1813 Chauncey and Yeo roamed the lakes, and made many hostile manoeuvres, but the British commander was too shy to allow the American Commodore a chance for a real battle. Finally, toward the close of Sep tember, they had a short but indecisive skirmish of Toronto; and early in October Chauncey captured some British gun-vessels not far from Sackett's Harbor. Such had been his vigilance and activity that, at the close of 1813, he was fairly master of Lake Ontario, although the hostile squadrons had engaged in only three slight encounters during the season.

American Presidents, Polk to Hayes. What They Did. What They Said, What Was Said About Them is the second book in a planned five volume series, covering all the Presidents. These 43 men (so far) have succeeded in some regards and failed in others as they strove to do the best they could in what is surely one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Only they can truly appreciate what it takes to be the president. Others can only speculate. People feel strongly about U.S. Presidents. Some they admire – others they hate. It is fair game to criticize a president’s actions and policies. However, questioning their commitment to American ideals seems like hitting below the belt. There are no willing villains. Most people can find justification for their actions, beliefs, and prejudices. Each president strove to do the best he could for the nation and its people. This goal of the book is not to praise presidents, nor is it to condemn them. The subtitle of each of the five books in the series: What They Did. What They Said, What Was Said About Them, perfectly describes the approach adopted to tell their stories in a unique, way, meant to entertain as well as inform. Readers are asked to make their own judgments of the presidencies based on more information that the semi-myths they may recall History courses or what is preached in the many longstanding and despicable negative campaigning, mudslinging and character assassination reports they hear from partisans. One can find much to admire about each of the presidents and unfortunately much to deplore. Soldiers are told that in giving salutes to officers is not honoring the individuals, but rather their rank. If there are presidents, readers just feel they cannot salute, hopefully they can salute the presidency.

When I wrote the first edition of this book (2009), it was written as a reference book with the sole purpose of educating community awareness. Since then, I have dedicated my life to helping victims and survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence, racism, and bullying. The goal of this book is for victims and survivors of sexual violence and domestic violence to have a voice and to know that they are not alone with their victimization and recovery process. I also know what it means to walk in one's shoes, which is why I chose to talk about my own battles with anorexia, bulimia, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and sexual harassment victimization. I felt it was best to share some of my own related life events so that my readers can connect on a more personal level with whatever it is that they may be going through. Recovery is possible.

THE STORY OF LINCOLN AND RUSSIA—VIRTUALLY AN UNKNOWN CHAPTER IN THE LINCOLN SAGA Lincoln and the Russians, first published in 1952, is the first volume to explore extensively a much neglected aspect of American diplomatic relations: American-Russian relations prior to the First World War. It is only since the Russian Revolution of 1917 that emphasis has been placed on the subject of American-Russian diplomacy; yet Russia played an important part in achieving Lincoln’s goal in the Civil War: the preservation of Union. Although the purchase of Alaska is a familiar story, the story preceding it reveals an aspect of history in which Russia contributed materially toward preventing British and French recognition of and aid to the confederacy. Author Albert A. Woldman has investigated thoroughly the reports to St. Petersburg of Eduard de Stoeckl, Russian Minister to the United States. He has quoted much of the correspondence which passed between the American and Russian diplomatic forces, and the result is a unique contribution to Americana and Lincolniana.

This stimulating anthology, prepared by the great folklorist, B.A. Botkin, is comprised of the traditional songs, stories, customs, and beliefs which have been handed down, by word of mouth, for so long that they seem to have a life of their own. For Botkin, they are at the core of peoplehood. When one thinks of American folklore one thinks not only of the folklore of American life, the traditions that have sprung up on American soil, but also of the literature of folklore, the migratory traditions that have found a home in the New World.
