Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Set some six months later than the earlier book, Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. Through the Looking-Glass includes such celebrated verses as Jabberwocky, and The Walrus and the Carpenter, and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland began as a story told to three little girls in a rowboat, near Oxford. Ten year old Alice Liddell asked to have the story written down and two years later it was published with immediate success. Carroll's unique play on logic has undoubtedly led to its lasting appeal to adults, while remaining one of the most beloved children's tales of all time. This edition is complete with all 42 original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel.
Furthermore, while this edition is in full color, not all of Leech's illustrations were in color. Many of them were in black and white. Only the ones that were in full color are, in this edition, in full color.

George Washington Cable, compared in his lifetime to Dickens and Daudet and praised in Moscow as a disciple of Turgenev, was more than a local colorist of Creole days in New Orleans. He was a crusader as well -- and a crusader for a dangerously unpopular cause.Originally published in 1956 by Duke University Press, this biography won the Charles S. Sydnor Award given by the Southern Historical Association for the best book in Southern History over a two-year period.

The Christmas Story: Scripture from the Gospels and the Prophets Here is the story of Jesus' birth and the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies in a beautiful ebook that can be used as a handout at Christmas and as a Bible study to use during Advent. Using traditional wording from Matthew and Luke's Gospels, and beautiful full-color art, this ebook starts with the angelic announcement of John the Baptist's birth and the angel Gabriel's visit to Mary. It continues with Mary and Joseph traveling to Nazareth, the birth of Jesus, and the visitation of the shepherds and the Wise Men. It ends with the Gospel story and a forward look toward Christ's second coming. This beautiful ebook will be treasured. Contains suggestions for Advent celebrations and traditional suggested readings; also includes suggestions for using the ebook as a Christmas program script. Ideas for Use Questions for Discussion or Journaling: •Read "The Advent of Hope" (panels 1-4). In the New Testament, John the Baptist fulfills the role of Elijah (also known as Elias in some Bible versions). What did the ancient biblical prophecies say he would do and why? •How did Jesus fulfill Psalm 89:3-4? What is the connection between Jesus and King David? •How did Mary respond to the angel's message? How did Joseph respond? How does the Lord deal with our own confusion in life? •Read "The Advent of Peace" (panels 5-6). In those days, the most powerful man in the world was Caesar Augustus. Look at the Old Testament prophecies. How is Jesus similar and different from Caesar? You may want to compare their status in society, their wealth and power, and their effect on future societies. Both would bring a kind of peace to the world. How would you describe the differences? •Read "The Advent of Joy" (panels 8-9). King Herod of Judea was one of the most ruthless rulers of the time. As a baby, Jesus had powerful enemies and his life was in danger. How did God protect him? Many people expected Jesus to be the Messiah for the Jewish people only, but God's plan was to bless the entire world. How do we see hints in these Scriptures. •Read "The Advent of Love" (panels 10-11). The Christmas story is more than the story of a tiny baby. Jesus was sent to earth to "seek and save" us. How was Jesus similar to us? How is he different? •Read Isaiah 53:5-6. What was the greater purpose for Jesus' life? How did he redeem us? Why is Jesus good news for all people? •At the time of Jesus' birth there was war and destruction. Within a few years of Jesus' death, Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed. What hope does Jesus bring to a dark world?,br/>•Jesus died, rose again, and ascended into heaven where he intercedes with the Father on our behalf. What is our response to Jesus? What claim does he have on our lives? Have you ever asked him to forgive your sins and be Messiah and king of your life?
