In fact, there is excellent reason for believing that the round towers were not built by the monks at all, the monastic writers being very fond of recording, with great particularity, what they built and how they built it, and in no passage do they mention the construction of a round tower. Whenever allusion is made to these structures, their existence is taken for granted, and several church historians who mention the erection of churches ...

At this period he appears to have left the task of recording them almost entirely to his two friends, whose memoranda, in all probability, are forever lost.

The girl speaks as simple prose as may be; there is not a word she would not have actually used as she was dressing. The poet stands by, impassive as a statue, recording her words just as they come. At last the doom seizes her, and in the very presence of death, for an instant, his own emotions conquer him. He records no longer the facts only, but the facts as they ...

He had, therefore, to modify the system of sweeping previously adopted in order to enable all the work both of observing and of recording to be done by himself.

Compared with what Aldus gleaned from {Pi}, Budaeus's extracts are insignificant.

He supplied it with the nucleus of a reference library, now become of great value to its members.

In 1828 he exerted himself ...

Upward of two thousand years rolled away ere this question was satisfactorily answered. Nay, we believe that the vegetable theory has, ...

The story of Abderahman has almost the charm of romance; but it derives a higher interest from the heroic yet gentle virtues which it illustrates, and from recording the fortunes of the founder of that splendid dynasty, which shed such a luster upon Spain during the domination of the Arabs. Abderahman may, in some respects, be compared to our own Washington. He achieved the independence ...
