| Filed under: History

Edgar Huntly

| Filed under: Literature & Literary Criticism
Edgar Book Cover

This volume contains a critical edition of Charles Brockden Brown’s Edgar Huntly, the third of his novels to be published in 1799 and the first to deal with the American wilderness. The basis of the text is the first edition, printed and published by Hugh Maxwell in Philadelphia late in the year, but the “Fragment” printed independently in Brown’s Monthly Magazine earlier in 1799 supplies some readings in Chapters 17-20. The Historical Essay, which follows the text, covers matters of composition, publication, historical background, and literary evaluation, and the Textual Essay discusses the transmission of the text, choice of copy-text, and editorial policy. A general textual statement for the entire edition appears in Volume I of the series.

 


Educational Architecture in Ohio

| Filed under: Architecture & Urban Renewal, History, Regional Interest
Educational Book Cover

The evolution of our institutions of learning, from one-room schoolhouses to the modern educational campuses of today, reflects both the growth of our populace and our shared cultures and traditions. Ohio offers an excellent perspective for viewing and interpreting educational architecture. The heritage of its pioneer settlers, the diversity of its immigrants, and its strategic geographic position for westward migration created a history typical of much of America. The state’s educational buildings reflect this rich history and culture.

 


Edward Taylor’s Gods Determinations and Preparatory Meditations

| Filed under: Literature & Literary Criticism
Patterson Book Cover

Daniel Patterson’s Edward Taylor’s Gods Determinations and Preparatory Meditations: A Critical Edition reconsiders the texts of Taylor’s two major works for the first time since Donald Stanford’s 1960 edition. This volume also offers the first complete text of all of the Meditations that Taylor transcribed into his “Poetical Works” manuscript. The restoration of Taylor’s text, however, is the most enduring value of this edition, which is designed to become the new standard edition of these poems.

 


The Election of 1860 Reconsidered

| Filed under: Civil War Era, Civil War in the North
Fuller Cover

The election of 1860 was a crossroad in American history. Faced with four major candidates, voters in the North and South went to the polls not knowing that the result of the election would culminate in the bloodiest conflict the United States had ever seen. Despite its obvious importance, surprisingly few studies have focused exclusively on this electoral contest itself. In The Election of 1860 Reconsidered, seven historians offer insightful essays that challenge the traditional view of the election, present fresh inter- pretations, and approach the contest from new angles.

 


The Enlightenment in France

| Filed under: European & World History
Artz Book Cover

This is an introduction to the principle writers of the Enlightenment in Eighteenth Century France. French thinkers of this century made a long series of devastating attacks on old ideas, usages, and institutions that had been handed down from the past. And, at the same time, these thinkers proposed a series of thorough-going reforms in social, economic, political, religious, and educational ideas and institutions. France was the center of the Enlightenment of the Eighteenth Century, but there were important thinkers that belonged to the movement in other countries, such as Vico and Beccaria in Italy; Lessing, Herder, and Kant in Germany; and Hume, Adam Smith, and Bentham in Britain. France, though, took the lead, and, outside of France, there were no thinkers of quite the influence of the French writers, Voltaire and Rousseau.
