‘Old Time Stories Told by Master Charles Perrault’ is translated from the original French by A. E. Johnson, and presented alongside the captivating illustrations of William Heath Robinson. It includes such classics of the fairy tale genre as: ‘Sleeping Beauty’, ‘Cinderella’, ‘Bluebeard’, ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, ‘Tom Thumb’, and many more. Charles Perrault (1628 – 1703), was among the first writers to bring magical children’s stories into the literary mainstream, proving to his original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. They remain as popular today, as they were then. William Heath Robinson (1872 – 1944), was an English cartoonist and illustrator, best known for drawings of ridiculously complicated machines – for achieving deceptively simple objectives. Such was (and is) his fame, that the term ‘Heath Robinson’ entered the English language during the First World War, as a description of any unnecessarily complex and implausible contrivance. Appearing alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate Jackson and Perrault’s masterful storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

"In the 1930s, William Heath Robinson (1872-1944) was known as "the gadget king" and he is still most widely remembered for his wonderfully humorous drawings and illustrations of highly ingenious contraptions. This book includes over a hundred of his original works." "Robinson's ambition was to become a landscape painter but he was forced to follow his brothers into book illustration, where his reputation was rapidly established. The creator of inimitable illustrations for poetry by Poe and Kipling, Andersen's Fairy Tales, A Midsummer Night's Dream, de la Mare's Peacock Pie, The Water Babies, and Perrault's Fairy Tales, he is ranked alongside Rackham and Dulac, achieving classic status around the world. He is also loved for the children's books that he both wrote and illustrated, The Adventures of Uncle Lubin and Bill the Minder."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Das Buch erzählt die Geschichte der gleichnamigen Hauptperson, eines verarmten Junkers, der durch die Lektüre unzähliger Ritterromane den Verstand verliert und beschließt, nun selbst als Ritter auszuziehen, „um Abenteuer zu suchen und all das zu üben, was, wie er gelesen, die fahrenden Ritter übten, das heißt jegliche Art von Unbill wiedergutzumachen und sich in Gelegenheiten und Gefahren zu begeben, durch deren Überwindung er ewigen Namen und Ruhm gewinnen würde." Don Quijote holt seinen alten Klepper aus dem Stall, gibt ihm den klangvollen Namen Rosinante, stellt sich notdürftig eine Rüstung zusammen und bricht auf. „Don Quijote" wurde vom Osloer Nobelinstitut 2002 als „Das beste Buch der Welt" prämiert. Es handelt sich um eine aktualisierte Auflage! (14. Februar 2016)

Poe legt in Heureka, auf der Grundlage der wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse seiner Zeit, seine Sicht vom Ursprung und Ziel des Universums dar. In seiner Darstellung verbindet Poe sowohl methaphysiche als auch naturwissenschaftliche Ansätze. Poe schildert in seiner Abhandlung seine Vorstellung eines endlichen und zugleich unendlichen Universums, in dem sich die Geschehnisse unendlich oft wiederholen, jeweils wieder zum Punkt ihres Ursprungs zurückkehren, um daraus wieder einen neuen Schöpfungsakt zu beginnen. "Seltsam ahnungsvoll präsentiert Poes Prosadichtung, die ein Jahrhundert vor der modernen Ära der Kosmologie entstand, eine überraschend zeitgenössische Sicht der kosmischen Geschichte." (Vision, Jg. 9/Nr. 3)
