ANGLO, Sydney, (ed.). The Damned Art : Essays in the Literature of Witchcraft. London : Routledge & Kegan Paul, (1977). First Edition. Pp (4),v-viii,1-258,(2). Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "Learned demonological literature, though frequently cited, is little read; and facile generalisation about such material has preceded the detailed study of individual texts. The Damned Art seeks to reverse this process. Only indirectly concerned with the unanswerable problems of popular mentality which have largely occupied recent students of medieval and renaissance witch persecution, the book approaches witchcraft and demonology through literary records. The works discussed deal not with the inchoate prejudices of the multitude but rather with contemporary theories propounded by those who sought either to justify, or to refute, persecution. Eight scholars of differing interests, and with different approaches to their subject, examine a selection of important, representative witchcraft texts - published in England, France, Germany, Italy and America - setting them within their intellectual context,and analysing both their style and argument. Thus not only the emotionalis m, but also the methodology of witchcraft belief is set before the modern reader; and the latter is, perhaps, even more harrowing than the former." (from he dj).

The season is winter, the year is 1913. The men and women who have come together so reluctantly include the playwright's wife, a few friends and several ex-mistresses from different periods of his life. In confronting one another they are uneasily aware that they are confronting different reflections of Antoine's own fascinating and maddening personality." - from the dustjacket.

8 ARMBRECHT, Thomas J.D. YOURCENAR, Marguerite) GREEEN, Julian) At the Periphery of the Center : Sexuality and Literary Genre in the Works of Marguerite Yourcenar and Julian Green.
Rodopi , Amsterdam / New York, 2007, ISBN:9789042021891 
ARMBRECHT, Thomas J.D. At the Periphery of the Center : Sexuality and Literary Genre in the Works of Marguerite Yourcenar and Julian Green. Amsterdam–New York : Rodopi, 2007. First Edition. Chiasma 23. Pp [1]-139,(1). 8vo, i llustrated brown card covers. The twenty-third volume in the Chiasma series. “At the Periphery of the Center is the first comparison of two of France's most important twentieth-century authors, Julien Green and Marguerite Yourcenar. It examines textual elements in their plays and novels to draw conclusions about the ways that they represent homosexuality in their texts. Both Yourcenar and Green turned to drama to explore aspects of same-sex desire that they felt unable to express in their prose. The analysis of their plays shows that an emphasis on dialogue and action makes drama a particularly appropriate genre for writing about homosexuality because it affords an author distance and therefore protection from the "proclivities" of his characters. The chapters on the novel show, by contrast, how prose fiction allows an author to explain a character's sexuality with a degree of subtlety difficult to achieve in theatre. Variations in narration and paratext allow writers to avoid condemning discourses and to find an original means of expression instead. At the Periphery brings a new, textually centered approachto Green's and Yourcenar's works that is unlike the psychological analyses that often typify queer readings. It will be of great interest to scholars of twentieth-century French literature and of Gender Studies. The book wil l also appeal to non-academic readers, however, since it is about two French authors who were also American citizens and who wrote about US history and contemporary culture." - from the back cover.

13 BANKS, Kenneth J. Chasing Empire Across the Sea : Communications and the State in the French Atlantic, 1713-1763. First Edition iin dustjacket
McGill-Queen's University Press, Montréal & Kingston, 2002, ISBN:0773524444 
BANKS, Kenneth J. Chasing Empire Across the Sea : Communications and the State in the French Atlantic, 1713-1763. Montréal & Kingston : McGill-Queen'sUniversity Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp (10),[xi]-xvi,(8),[3]-319,(3). Some maps in the text. 8vo, dark grey cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Dra wing on a vast array of official correspondence, merchant's letters, ship'slogs, and graphic material from archives and research libraries in Canada, France, and the United States, Kenneth Banks details how France, as the mo st powerful nation on the Continent and possessing a tradition of maritime interest in the Americas and West Africa dating back to the earliest years of the sixteenth century, seemed destined to take a leading role in exploiting and settling the Americas and establishing posts in West Africa. That it largely failed to do so can be explained in large part by problems emanating from information exchange in an early modern authoritarian state. Banksprovides a historical context for the role of communications in the develo pment of the imperial nation-state and offers an Atlantic World perspectiveon the growing body of literature revising the historical role of absoluti sm. Banks defines and applies the concept of communications in a far broader context than previous historical studies of communication, encompassing arange of human activity from sailing routes, to mapping, to presses, to bu ilding roads and bridges. He employs a comparative analysis of early modernFrench imperialism, integrating three types of overseas possessions usuall y considered separately - the settlement colony (New France), the tropical monoculture colony (the French Windward Islands), and the early Enlightenment planned colony (Louisiana) - offering a work of synthesis that unites the historiographies and insights from three formerly separate historical literatures. Banks challenges the very notion that a concrete 'empire' emergedby the first half of the eighteenth century; in fact, French colonies rema ined largely isolated arenas of action and development. Only with the contraction and concentration of overseas possessions after 1763 on the Plantation Complex did a more cohesive, if fleeting, French empire first emerge." -p.[1]. Preface; 1.

When Bruce and Jane Randolph take theirnineteen-year-old son Allan to France, they are confronted with the great moments of their own past lives. As they travel from the Riviera to Paris facing another war with dreadful calm, those moments become alive. [...] Frustrated by their own insensitivity to the new and terrible forces in the world, it is through Allan, who is unhampered by outworn beliefs, that they begain [sic] to see there may be salvage and hope." - from the dust jacket.
