Bob Hampton of Placer

The Grey Man

by S. R. Crockett

Well do I mind the first time that ever I was in the heartsome town of Ballantrae. My father seldom went thither, because it was a hold of the Bargany folk, and it argued therefore sounder sense to give it the...

Kittyleen

by Sophie May

The Sleeping Bard

by Ellis Wynne

The Bardd Cwsc is not only the most popular of Welsh prose works, but it has also retained its place among the best of our classics. No better model exists of the pure idiomatic Welsh of the last century, before...


The Lady of the Lake annotated by William J. Rolfe
