Abstract
Blue at the Mizzen ended with Jack Aubrey getting the news of his elevation to flag rank: Rear Admiral of the Blue Squadron, with orders to sail to South Africa. The next novel, never completed, would have been the chronicle of that mission. The three chapters left on O'Brian's desk at the time of his death are presented here.

Lost was the knowledge that the Chinese had reached America seventy years before Columbus and had circumnavigated the globe a century before Magellan.

Abstract
One of the great but often unmentioned causes of both happiness and misery is the quality of our environment. And yet, a concern for architecture is often described as frivolous, even self-indulgent. Alain de Botton starts from the idea that where we are heavily influences who we can be, and argues that it is architecture's task to stand as a reminder of our full potential.
