    Download Bygone Liverpool; (1913) Free PDF book by Ramsay Muir (with illustrations)  Liverpool; (1913) the object of this work is to present a picture of Liverpool in the making; to give a brief account of some of the historic landmarks and industrial activities; to draw attention to the periodic changes which have taken place in the town and port, and to review the circumstances that have brought those changes about. The nature of this effort precludes the possibility of its being accomplished by one person unassisted; because no individual or institution possesses the material for it. The work is, therefore, the result of the friendly co-operation of several individuals interested…

    Political and literary essays PDF book , 1908-1913 by Evelyn Baring Cromer

    Political and literary essays, 1908-1913 by  Evelyn Baring Cromer I have to thank the editors of The Edinburgh and Quarterly Reviews, The Nineteenth Century and After and The Spectator for allowing the republication of these essays, all of which appeared originally in their respective columns.

    with the R.A.M.C. in Egypt (1918) PDF book by Serjeant-Major, R.A.M.C Introduction: This account of the work of the Royal Army Medical Corps in Egypt from the earliest days of the British Occupation in 1883 to the close of the Sinai Desert Campaign at the beginning of 1917, is in no way official, nor must it be regarded as in any sense officially inspired.

    Falsehood In War-time 1928 PDF book by Arthur Ponsonby

    Falsehood In War-time 1928 PDF book by Arthur Ponsonby The object of this volume is not to cast fresh blame on authorities and individuals, nor is it to expose one nation more than another to accusations of deceit.

The ignorant and innocent masses in each country are unaware at the time that they are being misled, and when it is all over only here and there are the falsehoods discovered and exposed. As it is all past history and the…
