Стр. 129 - Over the burning marie, not like those steps On Heaven's azure; and the torrid clime Smote on him sore besides, vaulted with fire. Nathless he so endured, till on the beach Of that inflamed sea he stood, and called His legions — Angel Forms, who lay entranced Thick as autumnal leaves that strow the brooks In Vallombrosa, where the Etrurian shades High over-arched embower...
Стр. 171 - COMPANION TO THE GREEK TESTAMENT. For the use of Theological Students and the Upper Forms in Schools. By AC BARRETT, MA, Caius College.
