...A.L.O.E. ( ‘A Lady of England’ ) Pseudonym of Charlotte Maria Tucker ( 1821–93 ), who between the 1850s and 1890s wrote many evangelical novels for children which were notably strict and didactic even by the standards of the times. The daughter of an Indian civil servant, she underwent a conversion to evangelical beliefs, and at the age of fifty-four decided to become a missionary in India, where she worked with great success for the rest of her life. Her writing made much use of allegory, for example in The Giant Killer, or the battle which all...

....L.O.E . ( 1821–1893 ), prolific British writer of didactic books and evangelical fiction. According to Agnes Giberne 's biography, A.L.O.E.—“A Lady of England,” pseudonym of Charlotte Maria Tucker —decided early to be good, knowing she could never be pretty. The sixth of a family of ten, she and her siblings were guarded from the outside world by their father, an officer of the East India Company. He had lived in India until 1815 , and Charlotte, though kept at home by family duties, was long ambitious to be a missionary. Domestic responsibilities at last...

In addition to specialized houses like L’École des loisirs (also established in 1965 ), many of the major publishers (Gallimard for one) opened a children’s department. In a different sphere, the postwar period saw a resurgence, followed by a gradual decline, of censorship on moral grounds: *Olympia Press and J.-J. Pauvert , publisher of Sade and L’ * Histoire d’O , were prosecuted in the 1940s and 1950s , while the suppression of Bernard Noël’s Le Château de Cène was met with a...

...I provided funding for the casting of a *fount of Irish type in 1567 , but the first Irish printed work did not appear until 1571 , when a trial piece entitled Tuar Ferge Foighide (a religious ballad by Philip Ó hUiginn) was produced. Shortly afterwards, Seán Ó Cearnaigh ( John Kearney ) printed the Abidil Gaoidheilge agus Caiticiosma , a Protestant *primer . These proselytizing efforts prompted a Catholic counter-move in which Irish Franciscan friars initiated a programme of Irish-language publishing from a base located first at Antwerp and,...

...Yet Ong’s general point is a fair one. There is something remote and impersonal about a well-constructed typographic page that is the price it exacts for permitting us to read it at high speed. Few reading experiences can, on the other hand, be more intense than that of a great poem or musical work written out in the script of its creator. The late Patrick O’Brian’s last, uncompleted novel was brought out in an edition with a reproduction of the MS and a type transcript on facing pages. The MS is a corrected working draft, not a fair *copy , but instinct...

...and is still a complex set of ideas; and its members, however humble, considered themselves the children of the chief. Whole communities chose to emigrate together during the Clearances and, for these exiles, family history, or the history of the clan, was a statement of belonging. Few clan histories build on the clarity found in Audrey Cunningham , The Loyal Clans ( 1932 ), until recently, with the work of E. R. Cregeen , A. I. Macinnes , and John L. Roberts . The post‐clan highlanders have been studied in more depth ( James Hunter , Ewen A. Cameron , ...

... *Act of Union of 1800 . O'Connell's spectacular success in mobilizing mass peasant support to win *Catholic emancipation in 1829 was unfortunately matched by the equally dramatic failure of his repeal campaign when the *Peel Tory government called his bluff and forced him to cancel a ‘monster’ meeting at Clontarf in 1843 . In so doing, Peel's English government exposed the limits of the language and practices of constitutionalist protest: for one strand of O'Connell's embittered followers the only future hope was to lie in a return to the ideals of...

R. G. Conzen , Arthur Raistrick , and Harry Thorpe , all of whom were acknowledged by Hoskins. But it was Hoskins who pioneered the subject in the grand manner, as is clear from the 1988 edition of his book, with a new introduction and commentary by Christopher Taylor . It is useful,...
