The margin by André Pieyre de Mandiargues( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in French and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of Sigismond Pons, a Frenchman who leaves his young wife and son for a short business trip to Spain. Arriving in Barcelona, he finds a letter from home. Opening it, he glimpses, in frozen horror, a few words: "...threw herself off the tower...died instantly..." Emotionally unable to read on, he pockets the letter and, like a stunned sleepwalker, lives for three days in the notorious red-light district of Barcelona. Gradually his mind comes to crystallize around two images: that of love, in the form of a very young prostitute, and that of death in the shape of this caudillo-haunted city. At the end of the "margin" that he has left himself, he reads the letter in full, discovering that the horror is even more ultimate than that which stalked him these three days."--Goodreads
The arts in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance by Paul Lacroix( Book )

1 edition published in 1869 in French and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oil paintings are examined alongside frescos, tapestries, sculptures in bronze and marble, manuscript illuminations, objects in precious metals, and a wide range of other works. Welch explains artistic techniques and workshop practices, and discusses contextual issues such as artist-patron relationships, political and religious uses of art, and the ways in which visual imagery related to contemporary sexual and social behaviour. Above all she recreates the experiences of contemporary Italians - the patrons who commissioned the works, the members of the public who viewed them, and the artists who produced them

Tocqueville : the Ancien Régime and the French Revolution by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )

2 editions published in 1856 in French and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation of an undisputed classic aims to be both accurate and readable. Tocqueville's subtlety of style and profundity of thought offer a challenge to readers as well as to translators. As both a Tocqueville scholar and an award-winning translator, Arthur Goldhammer is uniquely qualified for the task. In his Introduction, Jon Elster draws on his recent work to lay out the structure of Tocqueville's argument. Readers will appreciate The Ancien Régime and the French Revolution for its sense of irony as well as tragedy, for its deep insights into political psychology, and for its impassioned defense of liberty"--
