The romance of Tristan and Iseult by Joseph Bédier( Book )

Charles the First, King of England by Hilaire Belloc( )

54 editions published between 1933 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 2,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A striking portrait of Charles I, this book also looks closely at the role that the burgeoning financial powers played in shaping European politics and the effects that these powers had on the English monarchy during his reign. Belloc also explores the consequences of these effects for Europe generally. At the same time, it is a detailed study of the man who was Charles I with all his strengths, all his weaknesses. Belloc's sense of history sheds light on how those strengths and weaknesses contributed to action or inaction by Charles and how those actions affected England and the rest of Europe
Kai Lung's golden hours by Ernest Bramah( )

23 editions published between 1922 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kai Lung is a wandering storyteller accused of treason--and not unlike Scheherazade of The One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, he must rely upon his silver tongue to escape conviction. With the help of beautiful Hwa Mei, who has the attention of evil Ming Shu, Kai tries to regain his freedom by spinning a series of entertaining tales that intrigue his captor. Laced with romance and adventure, spiced with fantasy and the supernatural, these stories will transport readers to a mandarin's court in ancient China."--Cover
Richelieu by Hilaire Belloc( )

89 editions published between 1929 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines Cardinal Richelieu's life and career focusing on his family and Catholic heritage, and describes how these two aspects demonstrate the development of Richelieu's character, philosophy, and religious principles. Is accompanied by several black-and-white illustrations
Charles II : the last rally by Hilaire Belloc( )

15 editions published between 1939 and 2008 in English and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Last Rally, Belloc narrates a central episode in the decline of the English Monarchy. Restored to the throne following the interlude of Cromwell's "Commonwealth," Charles II devoted his life as King of England to maintaining the integrity of the throne against all the forces arrayed against it: the power of the great landowners who worked through the Parliament; the influence of the Lawyers' Guild; and the irresistible mercantile and financial strength of the City of London. The story that Belloc brings to life is thus one of survival: the story of a ship of state brought "through peril and storm under a great captain." It is also the story of manhood and determination in the face of overwhelming odds; as such it is a story that Hilaire Belloc was eminently qualified to write."--Jacket

32 editions published between 1911 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics for Helen by Hilaire Belloc( )

44 editions published between 1924 and 2008 in English and held by 1,531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The path to Rome by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

177 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Path to Rome is less concerned with Rome itself than with a pilgrim's journey to the Eternal City. A spirited Catholic apologist, Belloc traveled on foot from Toul (near Nancy), France, and crossed the Alps and the Apennines in order to, in his words, "see all Europe which the Christian Faith has saved." Afterward, he turned his pen from his usual polemics to literature, and related in finely crafted prose his myriad experiences with the people he met along the way, as well as his reflections on tradition, politics, landscape, and much else. Throughout, the work abounds in Belloc's inimitable wit and good humor, and displays his profound love for the land, his faith, and his fellow man
The French Revolution by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

128 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A short history of this important event
The servile state by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

99 editions published between 1845 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Servile State is a book written by Hilaire Belloc in 1912 about economics. Although it mentions Distributism, for which he and his friend G.K. Chesterton are famous, it avoids explicit advocation for that economic system. This book lays out, in very broad outline, Belloc's version of European economic history: starting with ancient states, where slavery was critical to the economy, through the medieval economies based on serf and peasant labor, to capitalism. Belloc argues that the development of capitalism was not a natural consequence of the Industrial Revolution, but a consequence of the earlier dissolution of the monasteries in England, which then shaped the course of English industrialization
The free press by Hilaire Belloc( )

22 editions published between 1918 and 2018 in English and held by 1,459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If there is one power in modern society which is justly called all-pervasive, it is the Media. It is not a power that equals that of Church or State, but one that increasingly towers above them. It is this raw power possessed by the modern Media that makes The Free Press both relevant and educational. Surveying the history of Media power in its origin, development, and corrosive influence on citizen and society, Belloc makes a powerful and persuasive case for the establishment of a Free Media, to provide a truly independent source of news and a serious discussion of ideas."--BOOK JACKET
An essay on the restoration of property by Hilaire Belloc( )

30 editions published between 1936 and 2012 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present essay should be sufficient in itself to silence all such criticism on the first count. Herein it is at once obvious and striking just how practical the Distributist Vision was; practical not in the sense of easy, but practical in the sense of being articulated with a view toward application and implementation. For in the Restoration of Property, Belloc's concern is not so much with explaining what a Distributist society is, but with sketching, even if in neccessarily brief and vague terms, what that society looks like, how it might be achieved, and how it should be preserved."--Jacket
Marie Antoinette by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

88 editions published between 1909 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 1,386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every few years the public becomes enamored with the story of Marie Antoinette (1755-93), the Austrian royal sent at the age of fourteen to France to marry the young prince who reigned as Louis XVI, and her time has come again. Hilaire Belloc's entertaining biography--an overlooked gem, according to a recent Amazon review--is sympathetic yet fair to the red-headed, intelligent, and arduous queen who lost her head to a guillotine. Her chance friendships failed not in mere disappointments but in ruin; her lapses of judgment betrayed her not to stumbling but to an abyss, writes Belloc, the prolific French-British author of many works of history, biography, and books for children."
How the reformation happened by Hilaire Belloc( Book )

78 editions published between 1920 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this famous and surprising book, the great Catholic historian Hilaire Belloc gives the true and largely untold story which answers one of the most important historical questions in our civilization: "How did Christendom suffer shipwreck?" Showing that this momentous question is invisible to Protestant movement was by no means the culmination of a long natural progress, but rather was one of six mortal perils which had threatened to destroy Catholic European civilization - and was the only one, which, tragically, failed to be stamped out by the Catholic Church. Belloc describes how it was not doctrine, but avarice and rebellion against the clergy, which originally fueled the Reformation. He readily admits that corruption among Churchmen and clerical abuses regarding Church revenues prepared the way for the Flood of Revolt, as did Humanism and a growing contempt for authority - plus the perennial "hatred of the Catholic Faith." Belloc maintains that Luther just happened to be the one to let loose "the Flood," that the international threat of a Mohammedan invasion (largely overlooked by historians) paralyzed the German authorities at this crucial moment, that England fell to Protestantism through a "political accident," and that the dark genius of Calvin then clarified and shaped the anti-Catholic fury into a definite program. As for the doctrine of "Justification by Faith alone," Belloc says it was not a motive of the movement, but "an afterthought." He describes how Catholic and Protestant forces spent 10 years lining up for battle, then 13 years in battle - followed by the Church's belated defense (through the Jesuits and the Council of Trent), by further combats, and finally by one last great struggle, and finally by one last great struggle to keep Christendom united (the Thirty Years War), which ended in exhaustion for both sides and a divided Europe after the Peace of Westphalia in 1648. In all this panorama of great historical events, Belloc highlights the driving forced played by greed: For the rare opportunity to transfer Church lands and revenues into private hands provided a powerful incentive for the gentry and nobles to cast their lot with the new Protestant movement. How the Reformation Happened is perhaps the most cogent explanation ever penned of what was really going on in the titanic 16-century upheaval of Catholic Europe. It is a book that cannot be ignored by anyone who would understand our Western Civilization - or who would understand where that civilization is now heading as a result of the tragic Protestant Reformation. -- from back cover
