A London Gem for Classicists

Unsworths Booksellers at 12 Bloomsbury St - if you're ever in London, this is *THE* bookstore to check out!

I wandered in, rather by accident, a few days ago - was heading back from the British Museum when I lost my way and pulled into the nearest shop to escape the cold. (I'm sure the Canadians here will be laughing at what I call cold weather, but after Mauritius, English winter is **freezing**.)

Users Browsing this Forum...None?

It's the funniest thing; sometimes when I'm in a forum, it will say "Users Browsing this forum: Keesa (and anyone else who happens to be on)". Other times, though, it says, "Users browsing this forum: none."

Does this mean that I don't really exist? :cry:

Mi

Today I say the English version of 'Oliver Twist' on Tv.
And I remarked that they always use the word 'mi' for 'mine' or 'my'.
In 'Keaping up appearences' they do the same.
And we also say 'milady' and sometimes also 'milord'. These words even became famous in frensh.

So, does anyone know if they are dialectical variants? Who do use them?

Poetic Edda CD

Sounds llike close to what I was looking for: A Poetic Edda audio book,

It seems to contain three songs from Edda and a later composition, tho' I'm not very sure. Anyway it's in my prolonged shopping list. :P

Earth-holding Poseidon, the Earth-Shaker

I trust all our fellow textkitters in California are well?

(Hesiod really does call Poseidon by both names on l.15 of the Theogony.)

Friends of Textkit - Still Searching For Keys..

I have been looking for public domain copies of several important keys. At this point, I don't think a key will be found inside the United States and I'm reaching out for some help.

Key to Latin Prose Composition, North and Hillard
Key to Greek Prose Composition, Arthur Sidgwick

Photos of Textkit's books

If you're curious to know what these books actually look like and what other books we have on hand - here are several photos of the Textkit books. You'll also see on the top and bottom shelves all of the photocopies made.

This isn't all the books, some are around the house, others were returned, sold, borrowed from libraries and/or mailed in to us by photocopy.
