Voltaire: A Sketch of his Life and Works

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

He would be a bold person who should attempt to say something entirely new on Voltaire. His life has often been written, and many are the disquisitions on his character and influence. This little book, which at the bicentenary of his birth I offer as a Freethinker’s tribute to the memory of the great liberator, has no other prete...

Visible and Invisible

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 There is not in all London a quieter spot, or one, apparently, more withdrawn from the heat and bustle of life than Newsome Terrace.

Vagabonding Through Changing Germany

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

For those of us not already members of the famous divisions that were amalgamated to form the Army of Occupation, it was almost as difficult to get into Germany after the armistice as before.

Vision House

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

The passenger list of the Britannia was posted up close to the lift on B deck, but the weather had not encouraged curious groups to study and inwardly digest its items.

Vailima Letters

Cate: Classical Novels  Author:Robert Louis Stevenson罗伯特·路易斯·史蒂文森 

My Dear Colvin, — This is a hard and interesting and beautiful life that we lead now. Our place is in a deep cleft of Vaea Mountain, some six hundred feet above the sea, embowered in forest, which is our strangling enemy, and which we combat with axes and dollars. I went crazy over outdoor work, and had at last to confine myself to the...
