Contes des fées : suivis des Contes nouveaux, ou, Les fées à la mode by Charles Perrault ( Book )
10 editions published between 1856 and 2006 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"De la fin du règne de Louis XIV à la Révolution française, une exceptionnelle floraison de conteurs et de conteuses s'adonne au conte merveilleux sous toutes ses formes. Mme d'Aulnoy occupe une place remarquable au sein de cette production : initiatrice, dès 1690, de cette vogue qui s'épanouit à la fin du XVIIe siècle, elle constitue également, par l'ampleur et l'originalité de sa production féerique, l'une des représentantes privilégiées de ce genre. Elle illustre en effet la naissance du conte féminin, privilégiant une écriture mondaine et galante souvent empreinte de romanesque. Plus largement, c'est au carrefour des cultures orale et écrite, populaire et littéraire, ancienne et moderne que ces contes puisent leur inspiration, leur esthétique, leur poétique ainsi que leur riche imaginaire. Les amateurs de féerie ne s'y trompèrent pas : ils plébiscitèrent les vingt-cinq contes de fées de Mme d'Aulnoy, dont le succès fut immédiat et durable. Traduits en anglais avant ceux de Perrault, plus souvent réédités, au XVIIIe siècle, que ceux de son confrère, ils furent salués, exploités voire pillés par les conteurs ultérieurs. Mais ils subirent aussi une double dépossession : la relégation aux rayons souvent dépréciés de la littérature enfantine; et leur récupération par une culture populaire peu soucieuse du texte littéral. C'est à une redécouverte qu'invite donc cette édition, offrant l'intégralité des contes et de leurs récits-cadres. Un second volume de Contes nouveaux ou Les Fées à la mode complète le présent ouvrage"--Page 4 of cover

Le comte de Monte-Cristo by Alexandre Dumas ( Book )
5 editions published between 1853 and 1896 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally published as a serial in Le Siècle newspaper in 1844, this classic intrigue features Edmond Dantès as a hero, a young sailor from Marseilles who, on the way to marry the beautiful Mercedès, is denounced as a Bonapartist conspirator by his friend and rival in love. Wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years in the Château d'If of the coast of Marseilles, he becomes acquainted with a fellow prisoner, the abbot Farria, who before dying confides in him about the existence of an immense treasure hidden on the island of Montecristo. After a spectacular escape, Dantès recovers the treasure, and returns to France under the guise of the super rich Count of Monte Cristo with the purpose of quenching his thirst for revenge. Dantès certainly deserves justice to be rendered, but his crusade, relentless and without pity, turns him into a bitter and rancorous man stripped of all emotion. The young and naive Dantès is dead indeed, leaving his place to a manipulative count. However the man is not stripped of all commiseration since he will come to the assistance of those who had formerly helped him, reward his servants and contribute to the happiness of Maurel's son and Villefort's daughter by facilitating their idyll
