"This volume has been a long time in coming. Since the Nag Hammadi library was discovered in December 1945 by Muhhamed 'Ali al-Samman Muhammad Khalifah, the publication of the tractates has encountered a number of obstacles of a political and scholarly sort. As a result, though it has been some thirty-two years since their discovery, the Nag Hammadi tractates have not previously been available in their entirety in English translation-nor, for that matter, in any other modern language.Even the publication of The Facsimile Edition of the Nag Hamaddi Codices is a task only now reaching completion. With the completion of the Facsimile Edition and the appearance of the present volume, the Nag Hammadi library is at last available to the reading public...." - Preface from The Nag Hammadi Library In English

Michael Bond - the man behind Paddington Bear

"All the same ... it's a very important name. And I don't expect there are many bears in the world called Paddington!"

A lonely toy bear on an empty shop shelf on Christmas Eve in 1956 first captured the attention of Michael Bond, who kindly shared Paddington with the world.
