              The marriage between a duke and Amazon queen sparks a massive celebration, which leads to a congregation of woodland residents, Fairyland creatures and surprising lovers. Set in Athens, A Midsummer Night's Dream follows unsuspecting couples as they fall prey to a supernatural plo...y. Four plots simultaneously take place during the wedding preparations for Theseus, the duke of Athens and Hippolyta, the Amazon queen. Four young people, Hermia, Demetrius, Helena and Lysander, are struggling under the weight of unrequited love and politics. A performance troupe, led by the overhearing Nick Bottom, is rehearsing for the reception. Meanwhile, Oberon, king of the fairies and his queen, Titania have a disagreement that leads to a fantastical error. Oberon commands Puck, a sprite, to apply a magical juice to the eyelids of Titania in hopes that she will fall in love with the first thing she sees. He also applies it to Hermia, Demetrius, Helena and Lysander. Unfortunately, it forces both men to fall in love with Helena, leaving Hermia further isolated. A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of William Shakespeare's most popular and aesthetically pleasing plays. The woodland backdrop and the unexpected romance makes for a delightfully entertaining read. The emotionally charged characters are the driving force behind this multifaceted story. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of A Midsummer Night's Dream is both modern and readable.

              The Art of War

              The Art of War is the collection of leadership and military strategies composed by the esteemed Chinese general, Sun Tzu. Divided into 13 distinct chapters, each category gives clarity and voice to varying subjects pertaining to the intricacies of war and wartime strategy. Having... inspired generations of readers,The Art of War continues to be perceived as a kind of spiritual lighthouse for all those seeking sage leadership advice. Though Sun Tzu's expertise was considered to be professing wartime strategy, the principals enumerated within the text extend far beyond the logistics of a battlefield. Having lived during the Warring States Period, Sun Tzu understood conflict and political strife. Sun Tzu, using the culmination of decades worth of knowledge inspired generations of leaders with his words. His insight was not wasted on the bloodshed of lives lost in battle, yet it was composed into beautifully succinct proverbs and adages that make up the whole of The Art of War. Perhaps his most well-known axiom is, Know the enemy and know yourself, and you can fight a hundred battles with no danger of defeat. With proverbs as popular as the one above, the entirety of his work is composed of this level of insight. As pertinent as it was when it was written over 2,000 year ago, The Art of War is a true work of philosophical mastery.

              Elusive Isabel (1909) is a spy novel by Jacques Futrelle. Published at the height of his career as a leading popular detective and science fiction writer, Elusive Isabel was adapted for a 1916 silent film of the same name starring Florence Lawrence. Celebrated for his brisk story...telling and mastery of suspense, Jacques Futrelle was lost at sea on April 15, 1912 while returning from Europe on the HMS Titanic. His wife, who survived the disaster, had his last book dedicated to the heroes of the Titanic. All the world rubs elbows in Washington. Outwardly it is merely a city of evasion, of conventionalities, sated with the commonplace pleasures of life, listless, blase even, and always exquisitely, albeit frigidly, courteous; but beneath the still, suave surface strange currents play at cross purposes, intrigue is endless, and the merciless war of diplomacy goes on unceasingly. Stationed in Washington, DC, international spy Isabel Thorne is tasked with securing the signatures of leading diplomats from Latin countries in an agreement to usurp England and America as the dominant global power. At the same time, her brother has developed a powerful weapon allowing submarines to launch missiles, which will undoubtedly grant their alliance an advantage in the event of war. Known for her ability to elude capture, Isabel finds herself shaken by the love of Grimm, a loyal U. S. Secret Service agent. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Jacques Futrelle's Elusive Isabel is a classic of American detective fiction reimagined for modern readers.

              The Jolly Roger: A Story of Sea Heroes and Pirates (1891) is a novel by Hume Nisbet. Published at the beginning of his career as a leading ghost story writer of the Victorian era, The Jolly Roger: A Story of Sea Heroes and Pirates is a tale of adventure inspired by the author's t...ravels in Papua New Guinea. Largely unknown by today's audience, Hume Nisbet was a versatile writer whose experiences as an artist and traveler inform his wide-ranging body of work. From the mind of one of Victorian England's finest popular fiction writers comes a tale of swashbuckling adventure set during the tumultuous reign of King James I. The story opens on the island of Laverne, a notorious pirate stronghold set in protective waters along the coast of South America. From there, a group of brave and impossibly bold pirates embarks on a journey in search of fortune across the Spanish Main. Along the way, they nearly succumb to the wiles of a thousand-year-old witch, perhaps the most memorable of Nisbet's creations, but certainly not the most terrifying. With scant source material, the author summons an era of wonder and discovery for modern day readers, a feat which depends in no small part upon his own adventures on the islands of the South Sea. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Hume Nisbet's The Jolly Roger: A Story of Sea Heroes and Pirates is a classic of Victorian fiction reimagined for modern readers.

              The Life and Romances of Mrs. Eliza Haywood (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The Life and Romances of Mrs. Eliza Haywood (1915) is a monograph by George Whicher. Highly regarded by feminist scholars today, Haywood was a prolific writer who revolutionized the English novel while raising a family, running a pamphlet shop in Covent Gardens, and pursuing a ca...reer as an actress and writer for some of London's most prominent theaters. In The Life and Romances of Mrs. Eliza Haywood, Whicher blends biography and literary criticism in order to present an authoritative vision of the life and career of one of England's most influential and misunderstood writers. Notoriously private, Haywood is a major figure in English literature about whom little is known for certain. Scholars believe she was born Eliza Fowler in Shropshire or London, but are unclear on the socioeconomic status of her family. She first appears in the public record in 1715, when she performed in an adaptation of Shakespeare's Timon of Athens in Dublin. Famously portrayed as a woman of ill-repute in Alexander Pope's Dunciad (1743), it is believed that Haywood had been deserted by her husband to raise their children alone. Pope's account is likely to have come from poet Richard Savage, with whom Haywood was friends for several years beginning in 1719 before their falling out. This period coincided with the publication of Love in Excess (1719-1720), Haywood's first and best-known novel. Alongside Delarivier Manley and Aphra Behn, Haywood was considered one of the leading romance writers of her time. Haywood's novels, such as Idalia; or The Unfortunate Mistress (1723), The Distress'd Orphan; or Love in a Madhouse (1726), and The History of Miss Betsy Thoughtless (1751) often explore the domination and oppression of women by men. In The Life and Romances of Mrs. Eliza Haywood, George Whicher does the best he can with an incomplete record to renew academic interest in the work of an iconic storyteller.

              The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1916) is a novel by Vicente Blasco Ibanez. Published at the height of his career as a popular Spanish author, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse was adapted into a 1921 silent film starring Rudolph Valentino and later into a 1962 feature dire...cted by Vincente Minelli. In 1919, the novel became a bestseller in the United States. 'And when the sun arises in a few hours, the world will see coursing through its fields the four horsemen, enemies of mankind. . . . Already their wild steeds are pawing the ground with impatience; already the ill-omened riders have come together and are exchanging the last words before leaping into the saddle.' At the outbreak of the First World War, two families-and countless more-are torn apart by hatred and conflict that threatens to bring an end to humanity itself. Julio Desnoyers, a young man of mixed Argentine and French descent, leaves a life of luxury behind in search of glory and romance. Convinced that only sacrifice will win him the hand of his lover Marguerite, he enlists as a soldier in the French army. Meanwhile, his mother is forced to reckon with the marriage of her sister to a German man. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse showcases Blasco Ibanez's sense of tragedy and devotion to the politics of peace, both of which guide his depiction of humanity at war with itself. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Vicente Blasco Ibanez's The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a classic of Spanish literature reimagined for modern readers.

              The Haunted Woman (1922) is a fantasy novel by David Lindsay. Following the commercial failure of his critically acclaimed novel A Voyage to Arcturus (1920), Lindsay hoped to achieve financial stability with a more conventional tale of suspense and the occult. Although he once mo...re failed to reach a popular audience, Lindsay produced a powerful story of alternate worlds, the burden of convention, and the nature of human desire. Never self-conscious, never embarrassed, always quiet and rather ennuye, she fascinated by the very strength of her silence, which, it was abundantly clear, had nothing in common with stupidity. She had already declined three offers of marriage, before Marshall had appeared on her horizon. Isbel Loment has always cherished her independence, never consenting to tie her fate to that of a man, especially not for love. Now engaged to successful underwriter Marshall Stokes, she finds herself nearing the end of the rootless lifestyle she has led since the age of sixteen, when the death of her father left her a ward of an eccentric aunt. While on vacation at an ancient estate in the hills of Sussex, Isbel discovers a mysterious staircase leading to three identical doors. Choosing one, she is transported to a mirror world where, though the details are lost upon leaving, she seems to be encountering her host Henry Judge. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of David Lindsay's The Haunted Woman is a classic of British literature reimagined for modern readers.
