La Peau de chagrin by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

36 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in French and English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balzac's classic philosophical novel about a young man (Raphaël) torn between two women, one whom he loves but who does not reciprocate his affections (Foedora, the "woman without a heart") and one who loves him but for whom initially he has only fraternal feelings (Pauline). The sentimental drama is associated with a philosophical one in allegorical form: how does a man live his life ... with intensity but in an existence of short duration, or without desires in a long life? The drama is expressed through the talisman, a wild ass's skin, given to the hero by an old antique dealer. The skin has magical powers: it enables the owner to satisfy any desire, but it shrinks each time it is used. The owner's life is mirrored by the shrinking skin

Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by Prévost( Book )

20 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in French and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manon Lescaut (L'Histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut) is a short novel by French author Abbé Prévost. Published in 1731, it is the seventh and final volume of Mémoires et aventures d'un homme de qualité (Memoirs and Adventures of a Man of Quality). It was controversial in its time and was banned in France upon publication. Despite this, it became very popular and pirated editions were widely distributed. summarySet in France and Louisiana in the early 18th century, the story follows the hero, the Chevalier des Grieux, and his lover, Manon Lescaut. Des Grieux comes from a noble and landed family, but forfeits his hereditary wealth and incurs the disappointment of his father by running away with Manon. In Paris, the young lovers enjoy a blissful cohabitation, while Des Grieux struggles to satisfy Manon's taste for luxury ... On several occasions, Des Grieux's wealth evaporates (by theft, in a house fire, etc.), prompting Manon to leave him for a richer man because she cannot stand the thought of living in penury ..."--Wikipedia
Les Paysans by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2001 in French and Undetermined and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French writer Honore de Balzac had many unique strengths, and chief among them is his ability to limn and illuminate subtle differences between social classes. In this pastoral novel, Balzac explores the virtues and follies of country life through the eyes of Emile Blondet, a journalist who was born and raised in the provinces, works in Paris, and has returned to the countryside of his youth for a much-needed vacation
The wrong side of Paris by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in French and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toute l'œuvre de Balzac est placée sous le signe du secret, fondée sur la conviction que le vrai pouvoir est occulte et s'exerce dans "l'envers de l'histoire". Ce pouvoir, dont Vautrin est le symbole, est en général celui de l'ambition et du crime. Dans L'Envers de l'histoire contemporaine, le dernier roman écrit par Balzac, il est celui du bien : à "la conspiration permanente du mal" s'oppose la conspiration de la charité. Mais là encore il s'agit de société secrète, d' "initié", d' "un monde à part dans le monde" et l'histoire de Mme de la Chanterie pardonnant au magistrat qui a fait assassiner sa fille est une des plus "ténébreuses affaires" de La Comédie humaine."--Contratapa
Études de femme by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

14 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in French and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moins connu que Balzac romancier, voici Balzac maître de la nouvelle. Ces deux récits parlent d'amour, du mal d'amour et de vengeance. Ils sont des épisodes de la vie de certains personnages de La Comédie humaine que l'on croise ici brièvement. Étude de femme nous conte un moment cruel et éphémère : un jeune homme, croyant envoyer une lettre d'amour à sa maîtresse, se trompe d'adresse et la missive parvient chez une épouse fidèle, mais qui se prend à rêver devant les mots brûlants. La Grande Bretèche est l'histoire d'une vengeance terrible, celle d'un mari trompé. Une nouvelle écrite en cercles concentriques jusqu'au dénouement impitoyable
Louis Lambert by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

20 editions published between 1968 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Veering away from his realism and plot based novels comes Louis Lambert. Containing real elements from De Balzac's childhood critics have suggested it should be classed as a fictionalized autobiography. However De Balzac himself proclaimed the plot was merely a platform for the metaphysical and philosophical ideas of the main boy-genius protagonist. The author regularly declared himself to be a genius. Many agree he used Louis Lambert to explore the problems and difficulties that arise within society from the perspective of a genius. Any readers who have become fans of De Balzac and wish to further explore his musings and personal thoughts should definitely read this

This is the story of Cesar Birotteau, an honest perfumer who's lured into overextending himself. This luring is the work of the unsavory du Tillet, an employee Birotteau fired for embezzlement. The Embezzler works in secret to take revenge. Take it he does: Birotteau falls hard. But all is not lost--not yet. Anselme Popinot, a brilliant young marketer in love with Birotteau's daughter, works to help Birotteau recover. Perhaps together they can recover Birotteau's honor. --from goodreads.com
