Napoleon I : a great life in brief by Albert Léon Guérard( Book )

24 editions published between 1956 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After fifty years of study, Napoleon appears to me as neither angel nor beast, but as human, all too human: our brother -- our Big Brother -- a creature of strong but ailing flesh, lean and sulphurous in youth, paunchy and lardy in middle life; not a very good husband, who married two not very good wives; a martinet, an incomparable efficiency manager, with an addiction to gambling and gigantic dreams. - Foreword

Bottle in the sea by Albert Léon Guérard( Book )

15 editions published between 1954 and 1968 in 3 languages and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Guerard's testament, the bottle which he throws into the sea of world thought for perceptive fishermen to notice, was written solely for the satisfaction of his own conscience and is marked by its purpose. For he writes of ideas with the familiarity and tenderness of a man who has lived with and loved them. He finds the dignity of man in thought, upholding Descartes as the faithful doubter who kept his freedom to challenge in thought despite appeasement in conduct. He upholds The Enlightenment which overstepped itself going from reason to reasonableness -- yet reason is the servant of faith
