Brockden Brown, Charles
A thrilling tale that leads from ventriloquism and mania to a family murder and emotional breakdown, Charles Brockden Brown's "Wieland or The Transformation" (1798) ties revolutionary-era Gothic themes to struggles over the politics of Enlightenment on both sides of the Atlantic. This edition of "Wieland" includes Brown's "Memoirs of Carwin the Biloquist" and writings on Cicero, as well as his key essays on history and literature, and selections from contemporary German and other texts that figure in the novel's background and in the charged atmosphere of the late 1790s. 353pp.

Edited By Davis, Theodore M.
Before the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922, the greatest find ever made in the Valley of the Kings was the 3000-year-old tomb of Yuya (Iouiya) and Tjuyu (Touiyou), parents-in-law of king Amenophis III of the 18th Dynasty. The tomb contained their wonderfully preserved mummies, lying within magnificent coffins and surrounded by a gorgeous array of palace furniture and funerary equipment. "The Tomb of Iouiya and Touiyou" and of "The Funeral Papyrus of Iouiya", the excavator's official reports on this important find, edited by Theodore M. Davis and with contributions from Gaston Maspero, Percy E. Newberry, and Edouard Naville, were first published in a limited edition in 1907 and 1908 and are reprinted here in one volume. The non-photographic illustrations are by Howard Carter. 20pp.

Afford,Thelma
From the 1920s to the 1940s, there was a diverse flowering of amateur theatres in Adelaide which were experimental, creatively inventive and ahead of their times. Other Australian capital cities had their own Little Theatres during this period, but some of the Adelaide theatres were unique in anticipating later creative theatre movements, including overseas ones. These Little Theatres helped to form the basis of Adelaide's reputation as 'the city of culture' and also laid the groundwork for the later development of the Adelaide Festival of Arts. Certainly the subsequent landscapes of the Australian theatre scene would have been very different without Adelaide's Little Theatres of the 1920s to 1940s. 240pp.
