Joseph Hilaire Pierre René Belloc (/hɪˈlɛər ˈbɛlək/; French: ; 27 July 1870 – 16 July 1953) was a British-French writer and historian and one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. Belloc was also an orator, poet, sailor, satirist, writer of letters, soldier, and political activist. His Catholic faith had a strong impact on his works. He was President of the Oxford Union and later MP for Salford from 1906 to 1910.

When a man weighs anchor in a little ship or a large one he does a jolly thing! He cuts himself off and he starts for freedom and for the chance of things

When a man weighs anchor in a little ship or a large one he does a jolly thing! He cuts himself off and he starts for freedom and for the chance of things. He pulls the jib a-weather, he leans to her slowly pulling round, he sees the wind getting into the mainsail, and he feels that she feels the helm. He has her on a slant of the wind, and he makes out between the harbour piers. quotation from Hilaire Belloc).

There are many ways of doing it. The best, like all good things, has gone for ever, and this best way was for a thing called a capstan to have sticking out from it, movable, and fitted into its upper rim, other things called capstan-bars

it was a good read of Galland's endevors during WW2 but I was hoping the book would continue telling of his time after the war, however still a good read.

rst, the antiquity of its lineage; secondly, the antiquity of its self. For we all know that when we meet a nobleman we revere his nobility very much if he be himself old, and that this quality of age in him seems to marry itself in some mysterious way with the antiquity of his line.

Hulbine
Intriguing essays, especially about travel in Europe (he has a fascination with old Roman roads) but also other facets of human nature. It hasn't changed much since he wrote, even though the countryside has.

A nice, thick, hearty little facsimile edition. This book contain's Belloc's brilliance as his peers would have seen it a century ago.
Felolune
A wise man, a traveller with open eyes and great appetites, and a vivid, intelligent, imaginative writer. Do I agree with all of his beliefs and opinions? No. And that makes it all the more valuable.

Old fashioned in many ways, but amazingly timely in others.

A joy.
Nekora
A group of essays about the author's opinion on different subjects. It's okay, worth a look.I need four more words.
