281 RAMPERSAND, ARNOLD. Melville's Israel Potter: A Pilgrimage And Progress.
Bowling Green University Popular Press, Bowling Green: 1969. First Edition. s Softcover. Very good reading copy. 
Little has been written about Israel Potter; practically untouched by critical hands, the work has not received the extensive revaluation accorded Melville's major works in the twentieth century. The first fifty years brough one recorded scholarly review of Melville's methods and achievements in the novel; there are still fewer than a dozen articles at the disposal of the Melville reader. According to the author, this neglect is undeserved.

283 REILLY, JIM. Shadowtime: History And Representation In Hardy, Conrad And George Eliot.
Routledge, London: 1993. 0415085977 / 9780415085977 First Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
Boldly taking up Adorno's assertion that the crisis of twentieth-century art is its inability to represent historical events, Jim Reilly seeks the nineteenth-century roots of this problem and its articulation within the works of Thomas Hardy, Conrad and George Eliot. Drawing on the theories of Benjamin, Foucault, Hegel, Lukas and Nietzsche he constructs a powerful argument across the entire period of historicism's triumph and decline. Includes an Index.

Oxford University Press, London: 1963. Oxford History of English Literature series. h Hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar cover. Very good condition. 
This volume is concerned with what occupied the minds of the intelligent reading public during certain restless years. It covers only twenty-five years, but they are the years from the destruction of the Bastille to the battle of Waterloo - years during which successive shocks and reversals excited men's minds and imaginations, from that first picturesque and symbolic action, through victory and disaster, the expansion of strained attention over all Europe from Russiato Portugal, the vacillation of allies and the spasmodic excursions from Egypt to the West Indies, to the dizzy whirlabout of the Hundred Days.
