Come Buy Come Buy from the Author: Krista Lysack. From the 1860s through the early twentieth century, Great Britain saw the rise of the department store and the institutionalization of a gendered sphere of consumption. Come Buy, Come Buy considers representations of the female shopper in British women’s writing and demonstrates how women’s shopping practices are materialized as forms of narrative, poetic, and cultural inscription, showing how women writers emphasize consumerism as productive of pleasure rather than the condition of seduction or loss. Krista Lysack examines works by Christina Rossetti, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, George Eliot, and Michael Field, as well as the suffragette newspaper Votes for Women, in order to challenge the dominant construction of Victorian femininity as characterized by self-renunciation and the regulation of appetite. Come Buy, Come Buy considers not only literary works, but also a variety of archival sources (shopping guides, women’s fashion magazines, household management guides, newspapers, and advertisements) and cultural practices (department store shopping, shoplifting and kleptomania, domestic economy, and suffragette shopkeeping). With this wealth of sources, Lysack traces a genealogy of the woman shopper from dissident domestic spender to aesthetic connoisseur, from curious shop-gazer to political radical.

Come Buy Without Money from the Author: Apostle J. Vernon Duncan. This book is a companion volume to the well-known earlier work of the author, "Kingdom Wealth: The Power to Get It" (available from www.amazon.com, www.BarnesandNoble.com, www.trafford.com/07-2268 and other online sources). It is pragmatic and applicable to everyday living, especially appealing to those who consider themselves citizens of the Kingdom of God and radical enough to search for treasures under the biblical sands. In Isaiah 55:1, God the Father makes an ecstatic and passionate call to the thirsty, the desperate and the daring to come to His waters and buy without money. It is indeed an invitation to a business relationship, for the expression "waters", in this context, carries a commerce connotation, akin to the waterfront, the docks or port, the site of the most voluminous trade in any progressive economy. We are challenged to come and cast our bread on the waters and see it return in multiple dimensions within a few days (Ecclesiastes 11:1). This efficient and reliable Kingdom economic model is far superior to Wall Street's debt-based system or any other earth-based investment sheme; it is recession-proof, employing currencies much higher than money. Study this book and prove its immense value yourself. Get ready for true wealth.

Goblin Market Illustrated By Arthur Rackham from the Author: Christina Rossetti. Pook Press celebrates the great Golden Age of Illustration in children's literature. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in affordable, high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children. Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was one of the premier illustrators of the early 20th Century. He illustrated many books, the first of which was published in 1893. Throughout his career he had developed a very individual style that is was to influence a whole generation of children, artists and other illustrators. His haunting humour and dreamlike romance adds to the enchantment and fantasy of children's literature.
