The Armourers Prentices

The home of the Birkenholt family was not one of the least delightful. It stood at the foot of a rising ground on which grew a grove of magnificent beeches their large silvery boles rising majestically like columns into a lofty vaulting of branches covered above with tender green foliage. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Pillars of the House; Or, Under Wode, Under Rode, Vol. 2 (of 2)

Captain Harewood was gone. There was a good deal of truth in Wilmet's plea that much pain might have been saved if she had been allowed to abide by her first answer; but by this time she would not have saved it. She was a brave woman, and never sought indulgence; and all she accepted was the spending his last Saturday and Sunday at his home with him; and even on this she durst not venture without taking Alda, and exposing the dear untidy household to her disdain; but that October Sunday walk by the river was worth it all—worth infinitely more than the July walk; and they both declared it gave them strength.

Lady Hester; Or, Ursulas Narrative

Webster's edition of this classic is organized to expose the reader to a maximum number of synonyms and antonyms for difficult and often ambiguous English words that are encountered in other works of literature, conversation, or academic examinations. Extremely rare or idiosyncratic words and expressions are given lower priority in the notes compared to words which are ¿difficult, and often encountered¿ in examinations. Rather than supply a single synonym, many are provided for a variety of meanings, allowing readers to better grasp the ambiguity of the English language, and avoid using the notes as a pure crutch. Having the reader decipher a word's meaning within context serves to improve vocabulary retention and understanding. Each page covers words not already highlighted on previous pages. If a difficult word is not noted on a page, chances are that it has been highlighted on a previous page. A more complete thesaurus is supplied at the end of the book; synonyms and antonyms are extracted from Webster's Online Dictionary.

A Reputed Changeling

“Dear Madam, think me not to blame; Invisible the fairy came. Your precious babe is hence conveyed, And in its place a changeling laid. Where are the father’s mouth and nose, The mother’s eyes as black as sloes? See here, a shocking awkward creature, That speaks a fool in every feature.”
