La Peau de chagrin by Honoré de Balzac ( Book )
25 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in French and Undetermined and held by 136 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

14 editions published between 1967 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"je parle pour les gens habitués à trouver de la sagesse dans la feuille qui tombe, des problèmes gigantesques dans la fumée qui s'élève, des théories dans les vibrations de la lumière, de la pensée dans les marbres, et le plus horrible des mouvements dans l'immobilité, je me place au point précis où la science touche à la folie... " Balzac, Théorie de la démarche. La Recherche de l'Absolu est l'histoire d'un bourgeois flamand, Balthazar Claës, qu'une conversation de hasard lance à corps perdu à la recherche du secret de la matière. Son intuition géniale le mènera bel et bien jusqu'au bord de la révélation, mais la passion exclusive de la chimie dévorera tout sur son passage

Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by Prévost ( Book )
17 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in French and held by 48 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
Mémoires de deux jeunes mariées by Honoré de Balzac ( Book )
7 editions published between 1969 and 1998 in French and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elles sont deux, Renée et Louise, qui, à peine sorties du couvent, vont suivre des destinées contraires. Faut-il mettre de la passion dans le mariage ? Ou y chercher un bonheur raisonnable ? Derrière cette 'dispute', menée par correspondance, une lutte sourde oppose deux ambitions : Renée la sage n'exige pas moins de la vie que Louise la folle. Débat sur la mariage, les Mémoires de deux jeunes mariées sont aussi l'histoire d'une rivalité. Et si la sagesse finit par triompher du 'romanesque', il ne faut peut-être pas trop se fier au dénouement: 'J'aimerais mieux être tué par Louise que de vivre longtemps avec Renée', disait Balzac. -- Back cover
