Side 416 - Tis thou, thrice sweet and gracious goddess, addressing myself to LIBERTY, whom all in public or in private worship, whose taste is grateful, and ever will be so, till NATURE herself shall change no tint of words can spot thy snowy mantle...
Side 110 - WE SWEAR to be for ever faithful to the nation, to the law, and to the King ; to maintain with all our power the constitution decreed by the National Assembly, and accepted by the King ; and to remain united to all Frenchmen by indissoluble ties of fraternity.
Side 279 - ... latter monarch did not exceed eight or ten volumes. Charles V., his successor, who patronized literature, caused many works to be copied, and others to be translated; with these, and some that were presented to him, he formed a library, consisting of 910 volumes.

He had a great aversion to old pieces, and as long as he preserved his sway at the theatre, very few, if any were performed. In fact, there are many in which he is below mediocrity.

Side 315 - At the expiration of seven years, it was terminated; and the Institute presented the result to the Legislative Body with the original table of the new measures. MECHAIN and DELAMBRE measured the angles of ninety triangles with the new reflecting circles; imagined by MAYER, and which BORDA had caused to be constructed. With these instruments, they made four observations of latitude at Dunkirk, Paris, Evaux, Carcassonne, and Barcelona; two bases measured near Melun and Perpignan, with rules of platina...
Side 483 - Edinensis, non typis mobilibus, ut vulga fieri solet: sed tabellis seu laminis fusis, excudebat. 8 The Stereotype mode of printing adopted by DIDOT is as follows. The page is first set up in moveable types; a mould or impression is then taken of the page with any suitable plastic material; and afterwards as many solid pages are cast from the mould as may be wanted. The plan adopted by GED and others seems to have been different. After setting up the page with moveable types, they soldered them together,...
