先贴张他老先生年轻时的照片哈 挺荷兰的

电驴上房龙的资料历来不多,前几天有网友发了 人类的故事 有关的资料,发现颇受欢迎,想必很多驴友都喜欢读房龙的书吧。于是我淘出电脑里“尘封多年”的几本房龙的英文著作,发上来和大家分享。不好意思的说,搞不到全集。似乎现在互联网上房龙的著作没有全过。不过我相信VC上一份房龙作品全集定是和我一样众多房龙迷的心愿吧,只能靠大家一起努力了。

引用He was born in Rotterdam, the son of Hendrik Willem van Loon and Elisabeth Johanna Hanken. He went to the United States in 1902 to study at Cornell University, receiving his degree in 1905. He was a correspondent during the Russian Revolution of 1905 and in Belgium in 1914 at the start of World War I. He later became a professor of history at Cornell University (1915-17) and in 1919 became an American citizen.

In 1906 he married Eliza Ingersoll Bowditch, daughter of a Harvard professor, by whom he had two sons, Henry Bowditch and Gerard Willem. He had two later marriages, to Eliza Helen (Jimmie) Criswell in 1920 and playwright Frances Goodrich Ames in 1927, but after a divorce from Ames he returned to Criswell (it is debatable whether or not they re-married) who inherited his estate in 1944.
上面的是WIKI里对房龙的介绍。虽说很多人都知道了,但是按规矩还是介绍下吧。荷兰裔的美国通俗作家,1919才正式成为美国公民,但是在1913年就可以熟练运用英文写出了fall of the Dutch Republic这样优秀的作品,不愧为大师级别的人物。
下面是对这几本书的介绍:

THE FALL OF THE DUTCH REPUBLIC
房龙的第一本书,是根据他的博士论文而写成的,当然比他的博士论文会通俗很多啦。他的通俗历史学家的生涯就是从这本书开始的。18世纪的法国大革命深深地影响着荷兰,荷兰共和国许多的旧制度都废除了,不管它们原来是否有价值。然而荷兰也因此进入了四分五裂的状态,一个世纪之后才再重新统一起来。荷兰当年“海上马车夫”的风光不再。

ANCIENT MAN:the beginning of civilization
文明的曙光,艰难的人类进步之路。不过我个人觉得这本书房龙发挥想象有点过了。但是他的叙述真的很感人,从吃生肉的丑陋的原始人,发展到现代的高科技时代的人类,真是不容易啊。


THE RISE OF THE DUTCH KINGDOM

惭愧地说,不知道这位是谁,从网上搜来的有关荷兰王国的一个人物。应该很出名吧。回到这本书上来,
17世纪后期,荷兰先后与英国、法国交战,在海上荷兰败于英国(英荷战争),在陆地荷兰败于法国(法荷战争),从而衰落下来。1795年荷兰被法国占领。 在1815年被拿破仑统治的法国占领结束后,荷兰和现在的比利时、卢森堡组成荷兰王国。房龙的故事就是围绕这个历史讲开的。



A SHORT HISTORY OF DISCOVERY

看看副标题“ From the Earliest Times to the Founding of Colonies in the American Continent”,书里要讲什么就一目了然了。


THE GOLDEN BOOK OF THE DUTCH NAVIGATORS
这本书从书的序言来看,似乎是专门为荷兰小朋友写的~
引用This is a story of magnificent failures. The men who equipped the expeditions of which I shall tell you the story died in the poorhouse. The men who took part in these voyages sacrificed their lives as cheerfully as they lighted a new pipe or opened a fresh bottle. Some of them were drowned, and some of them died of thirst. A few
were frozen to death, and many were killed by the heat of the scorching sun. The bad supplies furnished by lying contractors buried many of them beneath the green cocoa-nut-trees of distant lands. Others were speared by cannibals and provided a feast for the hungry tribes of the Pacific slands.
But what of it? It was all in the day's work. These excellent fellows took whatever came, be it good or bad,or indifferent, with perfect grace, and kept on smiling.They kept their powder dry, did whatever their hands found to do, and left the rest to the care of that mysterious Providence who probably knew more about the ultimate good of things than they did.
I want you to know about these men because they were your ancestors. If you have inherited any of their good qualities, make the best of them; they will prove to be worthwhile. If you have got your share of their bad ones, fight these as hard as you can; for they will lead you a merry chase before you get through. Whatever you do, remember one lesson: "Keep on smiling."
Hendrik Willem van Loon.
Cornell University, Ithaca, New York.
iFebruary 29, 1916.
总之 是一本催人上进的悲伤地书。但是别忘了 “keep on smiling”!

AN INDISCREET ITINERARY
长长的副标题“how the unconventional traveler should see Holland by one who was actually born there and whose name is Hendrik Willem van Loon"
一本整体介绍荷兰的小书。序言里面房龙写了,在Netherlands Railways 的人建议下向美国大众介绍荷兰的书。
