Strona 24 - Mont Blanc is the monarch of mountains, They crowned him long ago On a throne of rocks, in a robe of clouds, With a diadem of snow.
Strona 65 - Lake Leman lies by Chillon's walls. A thousand feet in depth below Its massy waters meet and flow ; Thus much the fathom-line was sent From Chillon's snow-white battlement,* Which round about the wave enthrals ; A double dungeon wall and wave Have made — and like a living grave.
Strona 66 - But in it there were three tall trees, And o'er it blew the mountain breeze, And by it there were waters flowing, And on it there were young flowers growing Of gentle breath and hue.
Strona 138 - The first portions are necessarily useless, and are separated by the hand. When the threads came off uniformly, the cocoons were raised suspended to the hand by their respective threads, and thus handed over to those on the opposite side, who, in their turn, threw them into caldrons of water, the temperature of which was nearly that of blood heat, and more than milk warm—thus sustained by a steam-pipe.— The water was thus kept clean, and the silk preserved pure and unsoiled.

Strona 99 - Behold, he breaketh down, and it cannot be built again : he shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening. 15 Behold, he withholdeth the waters, and they dry up : also he sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth.
Strona 281 - And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison : that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold ; and the gold of that land is good : there is bdellium and the onyx stone.
Strona 219 - There was a wild romance in its notes, which was characteristic in a very high degree of all around. This instrument is about eight feet long, and its farther extremity rests on the ground. It is used among these mountains, not merely for the 218 herdsmen's call, but as an invocation for the solemnities of religion.
