Excerpt from History of Gilead Evangelical Lutheran Church, Centre Brunswick, Rensselaer Co;, N. Y. And the Vicinity In the year 1876 the writer, then pastor of Gilead Luth eran Church, Centre Brunswick, N. Y., was requested to prepare an historical address, as at that time it was sup posed the said church was exactly one hundred years old. This he undertook to do, delivering two addresses of the kind. These however did not cover half the age of the church. He then suggested the propriety of making an effort to collect everything that could be found relating to the church and neighborhood, and writing a history to be preserved in manuscript by the church, and forwarding a copy of the same to the Historical Society at Gettysburg, Pa. Soon afterwards, at an annual congregational meet ing it was resolved it should be published when completed. The work has been one of greater magnitude than the production indicates; patient research, much time, abund ant labor and considerable expense having been required for its production. Its circulation will necessarily be lim ited, as few outside of the immediate vicinity of the church, and descendants of families represented in it, will care to read it. The writer has spared no pains to secure accuracy and has taken no pains to embellish it. He does not court criticism of his language or style, but believes his facts will bear the test of scrutiny. As he could not hope to create a reputation as a historian in such a per formance the estimate anyone may put upon it does not greatly concern him. He hands it over to those it may interest or serve to amuse, and hopes it will contribute somewhat to the information sought concerning the early history of the Lutheran Church in America.

In this book, Brian Boyd surveys Vladimir Nabokov's life, career, and legacy; his art, science, and thought; his subtle humor and puzzle-like storytelling; his complex psychological portraits; and his inheritance from, reworking of, and affinities with Shakespeare, Pushkin, Tolstoy, and Machado de Assis. Boyd also offers new ways of reading Lolita, Pale Fire, Ada or Ardor, and the unparalleled autobiography, Speak, Memory, disclosing otherwise unknown information about the author's world. Sharing his personal reflections as he recounts the adventures, hardships, and revelations of researching Nabokov's life? oeuvre?, he cautions against using Nabokov's metaphysics as the key to unlocking all of the enigmatic author's secrets. Assessing and appreciating Nabokov as novelist, memoirist, poet, translator, scientist, and individual, Boyd helps us understand more than ever Nabokov's multifaceted genius.
