Pagina 93 - ... uncouth and venomous beast, avoid a paroxysm of horror at the sight of the common house-spider.

Pagina 257 - He had mounted along the side of thu window, nearly as high as the ceiling, a little below which he had begun to break through. The bed was covered with large pieces of plaster, the lath was exposed for at least fifteen inches...
Pagina 327 - In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened. And the doors shall be shut in the streets when the sound of the grinding is low...
