... of the Three Children An addition to Daniel after 3: 23 found in the * LXX and included there in Catholic Bibles (e.g. NJB, ‘the story of Azariah’) but in the * Apocrypha by others. It was probably an independent composition, and included in Daniel as a suitable insertion in the 2nd cent. bce . As a prayer of penitence, it seems to reflect the desecration of the Temple by * Antiochus Epiphanes in 167 bce and accepts it as a * punishment for Israel's * sins . Verses 35–66a have been incorporated as a canticle known as Benedicite in some Christian...

...Emperor’s Envoy to Korea), that the ‘Royal Library by the riverside stores tens of thousands of books’ (Sohn, ‘Early Korean Printing’, 98). During the 13 th century, experiments with movable *type produced works that have since been lost, but are remembered because of the practice of recording printing information in colophons. From this period, three pieces of evidence survive for the use of movable metal type. One is a collection of Buddhist sermons entitled Nanmyŏng ch’ŏn hwasang song chŭngdoga , printed on Kanghwa Island in 1239 using blocks cut from a...

...highly reminiscent of the 1840s . The book was a commercial failure, partly because of its lack of artistic unity, but it was a significant achievement. From this date, there was an explosion in the publication both of illustrated books and also of periodicals. Three of the most important magazines for illustrations in the 1860s were the Cornhill Magazine , Good Words , and Once a Week . The wood engraving for them was largely undertaken by large London firms, notably the *Dalziel brothers and Joseph Swain . The names of the highly skilled people...

...accounts of inland exploration and of native flora and fauna. This local interest was reflected in the scientific nature of many of the 19 th -century *pamphlets printed for exchange via the postal services with colleagues internationally. The third governor-general, Sir George *Grey , was especially active in collecting and translating Maori songs, while fictional and semi-fictional accounts of settlers’ experiences provided popular topics for early literary efforts. Newspapers were also the main publishers of printed Maori, other than the religious...

...illustrated by the unparalleled success of the *paperback . The first paperback pocket-book in The Netherlands appeared in 1951 as part of the Prisma series of classic literary works from the Utrecht publishing firm Het Spectrum. Print runs of individual volumes soon reached 250,000 or more. The formula was immediately copied, so that by the 1960s most publishers had their own paperback series in a wide range of genres, including literature, popular science, leisure, dictionaries, and children’s books. Rising costs and the increased scale of production...

...at the Methodist Book and Publishing House included publishing Canadian authors and strengthening the agency system. The firm moved cautiously with the Canadian list, publishing at the risk more often of the author than of the house. Robert Service sent $100 to have Songs of a Sourdough ( 1907 ) printed, and at the age of 92, the widely published Catharine Parr Traill was expected to find 200 subscribers for her new work of natural history. Other books were not accepted until the MS had been placed with a British or American firm. Under the agency...

...much of his life as a day-labourer as well as a poet; ploughing, shepherding, lime-burning, and scribbling ‘rhymes’. With brief exceptions he lived in a world bounded by the village of his birth and the nearby rural town of Stamford; his poetry evoked with vivid specificity the landscape, idiom, songs, and folk-ways of the fen country. Pierce Egan, by contrast, was the son of an Irish roadmaker living in Holborn. His only education was as a printer's apprentice and hack of *street literature ; the vivid social world of his writings was evoked from the...

Thus, Sheila Macbeth Mitchell between 1950 and 1980 recorded all pre‐ 1855 family graves in central Scotland, and, with her husband, John Mitchell , published twelve volumes entitled Monumental Inscriptions for eight Scottish counties ( 1966–75 ). Their son and daughter continue their work. The systematic listing of portraits is another women's interest, strongly pursued in Kent at present, where it is coordinated by Julia Page.

...sense of the play’s literary technique led to an impatience with earlier, realist accounts of its plot and characters, famously voiced in L. C. Knights ’s 1933 essay ‘How Many Children Had Lady Macbeth?’ The play has fascinated psychoanalytic criticism since the time of Freud himself (who felt that the play resembled a dreamlike account of Elizabeth I’s presumed guilt over the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots), with feminist critics in particular pursuing the connections between the uncertain gender of the witches, Lady Macbeth’s imagined...

...worse than the overwhelming deluge of Huns and Tartars’. Popular publisher Charles Knight ( 1791–1873 ) saw that ‘the triumphant song of “Labour Defended against the Claims of Capital”’ could only take place ‘amid the shriek of the jackal and the howl of the wolf’. Language, especially rhetoric or the language of persuasion, needs to be considered as social communication and situated within the historical context of the social relations where it played an active part. The shift from eighteenth- to nineteenth-century Britain, by way of political...
