Great Britain: Fount, 1983. The four loves the author distinguishes are Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity; and while each has been examined sufficiently often, from Ovid to St. Bernard and from St. Paul to Stendhal, there have been few advocates to do justice to them all. Professor Lewis sees how each merges into another, how one can even become another, without losing sight of the necessary and real differentiation between them.. Reprint. Softcover.

Today there is great interest in collecting these medals, both old and new, whether as works of art in themselves or for the history they record. Here is a splendid background guide, good reading for anyone interested in starting a collection, or in understanding a little more of Britain's history and how it affected people alive at the time of the events recorded. medals can, in fact, provide another dimension to history: pride and rejoicing in national achievements are vividly shown, in the style of the times; so are fears of unemployment, and feats of warfare, achievements in legislation, political campaigns and intrigues, exhibitions, and occasions large and small.

The foresight of the officials in putting the various roads in the high state of efficiency that they are in today has shown up very clearly since the United States entered the war, and the railroads have been carrying the heaviest amount of freight and passenger traffic that they have ever been called upon to carry and are successfully accomplishing the greatest task in the history of transportation.
