Two books

I stumbled over the KCL book of the month, proposed by one of their librarians. I forget how because there seem to be quite a lot of librarians on LJ. Thanks for posting about it, whoever it was.

Anyway, here's Death & The Dreamer by Dennis Saurat, chair of French at KCL for 20 years from 1930. It's a surreal collection of autobiographical images and stories.

And, for former_pirate, Johannes Nieuhof's An embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces, to the Grand Tartar Cham Emperor of China about the Dutch at the Chinese court in the 1650s.
