1000 Years of Annoying the French

By Stephen Clarke

McArthur & Co, 2010. 1st Edition . Paperback. Very Good. Soft Cover, Very Good Condition.The English Channel May Be Only Twenty Miles Wide, But It'S A Thousand Years Deep. Stephen Clarke Takes A Penetrating Look Into Those Murky Depths, Guiding Us Through All The Times When Britain And France Have Been At War - Or At Least Glowering At Each Other Across What The Brits Provocatively Call The English Channel. Along The Way He Explodes A Few Myths That French Historians Have Been Trying To Pass Off As 'La Vérité', As He Proves That The French Did Not Invent The Baguette, Or The Croissant, Or Even The Guillotine, And Would Have Taken The Bubbles Out Of Bubbly If The Brits Hadn'T Created A Fashion For Fizzy Champagne. Starting With The Norman (Not French) Conquest And Going Right Up To The Supposedly More Peaceful Present, When A State Visit By French President Nicolas Sarkozy Becomes A Series Of Hilarious Historical Insults, It Is A Light-Hearted - But Impeccably Researched - Account Of All Our Great Fallings-Out. In Short, The French Are Quite Right To Suspect That The Last Thousand Years Have Been One Long British Campaign To Infuriate Them. And It'S Not Over Yet ...

Histoire Amoureuse Des Gaules

By Roger de Bussy-Rabutin

Paris France: Editions Athena, 1949. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7 in- 9 in Tall. Examplaire numeroté No198. Livre non relié. Pages livre entre couverture souple. Très belles illustrations couleur pleine page. Très bon état. Illustrations rehaussées de pochoirs, bandeaux, cadres, lettrines et cul-de-lampe d'après les originaux de DERAMBURE. Achevé d' Imprimer le 20 aril 1949. Son Histoire amoureuse des Gaules est un jeu d'écriture mondain avec des histoires galantes à clés, à peine transposées, de fins portraits et des passages adaptés de Pétrone qui devaient amuser ses contemporains. Extrêmement animés, pleins de caractère, ses Mémoires, publiés après sa mort, possèdent tout le charme d'un roman d'aventure historique de cape et d'épée. Sa correspondance volumineuse ne le cède en variété et en intérêt qu'à peu d'autres du genre, à part celle de sa cousine Marie de Sévigné qui avait pourtant été fort blessée du cruel portrait qu'il avait fait d'elle dans son Histoire amoureuse des Gaules où il l'a dépeinte « inégale jusqu'aux paupières et aux prunelles de ses yeux. ». C'est grâce à Bussy-Rabutin que les lettres de cette dernière ont été rendues publiques.
