2 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oscar Wilde was a prolific talent who ignored the boundaries in his art and his life. As a writer, he mastered many disparate forms: poems, essays, novels, plays and children's stories. His best-known work, The Picture of Dorian Gray, cemented his reputation as the most colorful force in the drab gray of Victorian England. But the nonconformity he expressed in his works and his appearance--he was famously flamboyant--would soon bring the Irish-born writer to despair. From his days at Oxford to the revelation of his homosexuality which resulted in a trial that led to his incarceration in the Reading Jail, traces the life of the legendary writer and wit

When Louis Franc╠žois Cartier founded the House of Cartier in Paris in 1847, he created the brand of jewels that would grace the crowns, brooches, and scepters of European royal families, Indian maharajahs, and the Kings of Siam and Nepal. As told by clients, company insiders past and present, and the founder's descendants, the story of Cartier is one elegance and luxury married to creative talent and innovative, astute business practice
Biography ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Biography portraying the life of Diahann Carroll, actress and singer born July 17, 1935, in the Bronx, New York. When Carroll was just ten years old, she received a Metropolitan Opera scholarship for studies at New York's High School of Music and Art. In 1968, she broke important ground in Hollywood by starring in the TV sitcom Julia, about a beautiful and independent single career woman and mother, who happened to be black. This was the first TV show to star a black personality, and her character's dignified occupation as a nurse was a significant improvement over the stereotypical roles often assigned to black performers on TV in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1968, Carroll was nominated for an Emmy Award for her portrayal of Julia, and she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress the same year
