Traité de la vie élégante suivi de la Théorie de la démarche by BALZAC, Honoré de

Literatur-Blogs vom 16.10.2018 um 18:00 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
L’homme intérieur, principe du pouvoir et de la longévité, et l’homme extérieur arpentant, avec la même élégance que Chateaubriand, un boulevard. Le tour complet des postures humaines et de leurs effets. Balzac était lui-même un « dandy », cet ouvrage est écrit d’une plume fort humoristique. Le Traité se présente sous forme philosophique, avec beaucoup d’ironie. L’Essai pamphlétaire est bien celui d’un écrivain-journaliste, avec des sujets d’actualité de l’époque. Le regard précis de notre auteur de la grande « Comédie humaine ». Source Wikipedia. Et ajout de ChristianeJehanne.

Wonder Book for Girls and Boys (version 2), A by HAWTHORNE, Nathaniel

Literatur-Blogs vom 13.10.2018 um 10:13 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
THE author has long been of opinion that many of the classical myths were capable of being rendered into very capital reading for children. In the little volume here offered to the public, he has worked up half a dozen of them, with this end in view. A great freedom of treatment was necessary to his plan; but they remain essentially the same, after changes that would affect the identity of almost anything else. (Lenox - from the Preface (July 15, 1851)

In the Pecos Country by ELLIS, Edward S.

Literatur-Blogs vom 11.10.2018 um 15:47 Uhr | Quelle librivox.org
Edward Sylvester Ellis was a major American author during the era of inexpensive fiction of the nineteenth century (dime novels). Because he wrote under dozens of pseudonyms, as well as under his own name, it is virtually impossible to know exactly how many books he wrote, but it is believed to be in the hundreds. He specialized in boys' stories, inspirational biography, and history for both children and adults. (From FictionDB.com) This is a western, set in the Pecos River valley in the late 19th century, post Civil War era.
