On-Line Bibliographies

In the midst of this wreck of ancient books and utensils,

with a gravity equal to [that of] Marius among the ruins of Carthage,

sat a large black cat,

which, to a superstitious eye,

might have presented the genius loci,

the tutelar demon of the apartment.

Sir Walter Scott: The Antiquary, chap. iii.

    Consult the genius of the place in all;
    That tells the waters or to rise, or fall;
    Or helps th' ambitious hill the heav'ns to scale,
    Or scoops in circling theatres the vale;
    Calls in the country, catches opening glades,
    Joins willing woods, and varies shades from shades,
    Now breaks, or now directs, th' intending lines;
    Paints as you plant, and, as you work, designs.

    Alexander Pope, Epistle IV, to Richard Boyle, Earl of Burlington
