Galileo Galilei : a biography and inquiry into his philosophy of science by Ludovico Geymonat( Book )

Galilée est un symbole de la pensée scientifique. L. Geymonat recrée le climat intellectuel de l'Italie du XVIIe siècle et montre la complexité du personnage, un savant persuadé de ne pas avoir de preuve absolue d'une vérité scientifique, un vieil homme accablé par l'échec de son programme culturel tout en assistant au triomphe de ses idées scientifiques

Doctor Brodie's report by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

"En 1885 Kipling avait commencé, à Lahore, une série de brefs récits, écrits de façon simple, dont il allait faire un recueil en 1980. Beaucoup d'entre eux -In the House of Sudhoo, Beyond the Pale, The gate of the Hundred Sorrows- sont de laconiques chefs-d'œuvre ; je me suis dit un jour ce que j'avais imaginé et réussi un jeune homme de génie pouvait, sans outrecuidance, être imité par un homme au seuil de la vieillesse et qui a du métier. Cette pensée a eu pour résultat le présent volume que mes lecteurs jugeront."

The book of imaginary beings by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book of imaginary beings is Borges's whimsical compendium of more than a hundred of "the strange creatures conceived down through history by the human imagination." Imbued with Borges's characteristic wit and erudition, this unique contribution to fantasy literature ranges widely across the world's mythologies and literatures to bring together in one delightful encyclopedia the fantastical inventions drawn from the Kabbalah, Homer, Pliny, Confucius, Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, and C.S. Lewis, among others. Here readers will find the familiar and expected Dragons and Centaurs, Unicorns and Gnomes, as well as the less familiar and altogether unexpected Animals That Live in the Mirror, The Elephant That Prefigured the Birth of Buddha, the Hairy Beast of La Ferte-Bernard, and other undeniably curious creatures. Throughout, Borges's cunning and humorous commentary is sheer delight." "For this new illustrated edition of The Book of Imaginary Beings, Viking has paired Andrew Hurley, the acclaimed translator of Borges's Collected Fictions, with award-winning illustrator Peter Sis, whose original drawings appear throughout the book. The result is a wonderful work - an Alice-Through-the-Looking-Glass menagerie, which should appeal to fantasy fans of all stripes and ages."--Jacket
Six problems for Don Isidro Parodi by Jorge Luis Borges( Book )

9 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an unusual twist on the traditional armchair detective, Don Isidoro Parodi, jailbird and former barbershop owner, unravels each mystery brought to his cell by a host of flamboyant characters, parodies of different elements of Argentinean society. Among these, an easily duped journalist, an actor who gives a new meaning to egotism, and members of a Buenos Aires literary circle, each more absurd than the next, are some of the clientele who stop by the prison to see if don Ididoro is "in" for a consult. As with most of Borges' fiction, there are ample literary references; these add to the unrelenting and cutting humor wielded against Argentinean intellectuals, but the characters speak for themselves. Some of the plots are as farfetched as the characters, including a diamond stolen from Russian royalty and a precious stone lifted from a Chinese temple; others, such as "Free Will and the Commendatore," underscore philosophical problems. The stories are playful even when they are serious; H. Bustos Domecq does not miss an opportunity to poke fun at the characters, and the authors, Borges and Casares, take every chance to make much of Bustos Domecq, their illustrious pseudonym
