Riassunto: The Shelf2Life Charter Collection is a unique opportunity for modern readers to experience antique volumes in a new format. All the titles in the collection are pre-1923 monographs that have been selected from the shelves of libraries, cultural heritage institutions or other reputable collectors. By bringing these volumes out of the stacks and making them available in print-on-demand and digital formats, the Shelf2Life project hopes to open these books up to new readers and new generations. With content as varied as historic mountaineering, trains and railroads and the American Civil War, these books are certain to find a new audience among historians, collectors and even hobbyists interested in traditional bookbinding, publishing and typesetting. Access to these works is an important tool to understanding our past and the people, events and experiences of our collective culture.
Sinossi: After living abroad for 20 years, Henry James returned to his native America and travelled down the East Coast from Boston to Florida. This a journal describing his feelings on the rediscovery of the New York of his childhood, and the growth of modern commercial America. He muses on Thoreau, Hawthorne and Emerson; in Washington, he finds a cityscape devoid of spiritual symbols; in Richmond, thoughts of the civil war haunt him. Published in 1907, this journal also served as a farewell address to the country James would never live in again.
