Hardcover, Publisher: A. L. Burt1st Edition edition (1922) ASIN: B000OQ9D4E. Excerpt: The mouth of the canyon was darkened with shadows when the bull elk came stealing down the brown trail through the dusky thicket. In all this mountain realm, a land where the wild things of the forest still held sway, there was no creature of more majestic bearing or noble beauty. He was full-grownhis great antlers swept back over his powerful shouldersand it was evident from his carriage that he had no fear of such enemies as might be lurking in the gloomy canyon. For it was known far through the forest that even the great puma or the terrible grizzly, unless they had the advantage of ambush, treated Spread Horn with considerable respect. Signs of July were everywhere: signs that were large print and clear to the eyes of the wild creatures, but which would have been mostly unintelligible to men. The huckleberries were just beginning to ripen in the thickets as always, in the seventh month. Shepherds of the Wild. Little, Brown and Company. 1922.

Quo Vadis: A Narrative Of The Time Of Nero Translated from the Polish by Dr. S. A. Binion

By Sienkiewicz, Henryk, - translated From The Polish by Jeremiah Curtin

Boston, MA: Thomas Crowell, 1924. 3rd Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Good/No Dust Jacket. Illustrated by Howard Hastings. Light green boards . Reprint PaintingsQuo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero, commonly known as Quo Vadis, is a historical novel written by Henryk Sienkiewicz in Polish. [1] "Quo vadis Domine" is Latin for "Where are you going, Lord?" and alludes to the apocryphal Acts of Peter, in which Peter flees Rome but on his way meets Jesus and asks him why he is going to Rome. Jesus says, "I am going back to be crucified again", which makes Peter go back to Rome and accept martyrdom. The novel Quo Vadis tells of a love that develops between a young Christian woman, Ligia (or Lygia) , and Marcus Vinicius, a Roman patrician. It takes place in the city of Rome under the rule of emperor Nero, c. AD 64. Sienkiewicz studied the Roman Empire extensively prior to writing the novel, with the aim of getting historical details correct. Consequently, several historical figures appear in the book. As a whole, the novel carries an outspoken pro-Christian message. 8 color plates8 vo,601 pages
