Modern novel began to develop during the 18 th century. The term novel derives from the Latin ‘ novus ’ and from the Italian ‘ novella ’.

    The book is pages in length and is still in print. ISBN: X. It was written by Stephen King expressly for television and was published just prior to the initial airing of Storm of the Century on ABC. While the mass market edition of the screenplay was published only as a trade paperback, a hardcover edition was published. The 19th Century Schoolbooks Collection contains schoolbooks from the Nietz Old Textbook Collection. In addition, this online collection also contains two works by Dr. John Nietz, which survey historic American schoolbooks in the context of the history of education.
