The wild ass's skin = (La peau de chagrin) by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

32 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Balzac's classic philosophical novel about a young man (Raphaël) torn between two women, one whom he loves but who does not reciprocate his affections (Foedora, the "woman without a heart") and one who loves him but for whom initially he has only fraternal feelings (Pauline). The sentimental drama is associated with a philosophical one in allegorical form: how does a man live his life ... with intensity but in an existence of short duration, or without desires in a long life? The drama is expressed through the talisman, a wild ass's skin, given to the hero by an old antique dealer. The skin has magical powers: it enables the owner to satisfy any desire, but it shrinks each time it is used. The owner's life is mirrored by the shrinking skin

Les rêveries du promeneur solitaire by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

27 editions published between 1964 and 2010 in French and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is an unfinished book by French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau, written between 1776 and 1778. It was the last of a number of works composed toward the end of his life which were deeply autobiographical in nature. The content of the book is a mix of autobiographical anecdote, descriptions of the sights, especially plants, that Rousseau saw in his walks around Paris, and elaborations and extensions of arguments previously made by Rousseau in fields like education and political philosophy
Histoire du Chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by Prévost( Book )

19 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in French and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manon Lescaut (L'Histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut) is a short novel by French author Abbé Prévost. Published in 1731, it is the seventh and final volume of Mémoires et aventures d'un homme de qualité (Memoirs and Adventures of a Man of Quality). It was controversial in its time and was banned in France upon publication. Despite this, it became very popular and pirated editions were widely distributed. summarySet in France and Louisiana in the early 18th century, the story follows the hero, the Chevalier des Grieux, and his lover, Manon Lescaut. Des Grieux comes from a noble and landed family, but forfeits his hereditary wealth and incurs the disappointment of his father by running away with Manon. In Paris, the young lovers enjoy a blissful cohabitation, while Des Grieux struggles to satisfy Manon's taste for luxury ... On several occasions, Des Grieux's wealth evaporates (by theft, in a house fire, etc.), prompting Manon to leave him for a richer man because she cannot stand the thought of living in penury ..."--Wikipedia
Les Paysans by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 2001 in French and Undetermined and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French writer Honore de Balzac had many unique strengths, and chief among them is his ability to limn and illuminate subtle differences between social classes. In this pastoral novel, Balzac explores the virtues and follies of country life through the eyes of Emile Blondet, a journalist who was born and raised in the provinces, works in Paris, and has returned to the countryside of his youth for a much-needed vacation
L'envers de l'histoire contemporaine : suivi d'un fragment inédit : Les précepteurs en Dieu by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

11 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in French and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toute l'œuvre de Balzac est placée sous le signe du secret, fondée sur la conviction que le vrai pouvoir est occulte et s'exerce dans "l'envers de l'histoire". Ce pouvoir, dont Vautrin est le symbole, est en général celui de l'ambition et du crime. Dans L'Envers de l'histoire contemporaine, le dernier roman écrit par Balzac, il est celui du bien : à "la conspiration permanente du mal" s'oppose la conspiration de la charité. Mais là encore il s'agit de société secrète, d' "initié", d' "un monde à part dans le monde" et l'histoire de Mme de la Chanterie pardonnant au magistrat qui a fait assassiner sa fille est une des plus "ténébreuses affaires" de La Comédie humaine."--Contratapa

The quest of the absolute by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

18 editions published between 1967 and 2002 in French and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fanatical scientist twice sends the family fortune up in smoke in his search for the principle of matter ... 'From this unimpeachable experiment, ' he cried, 'I deduce the existence of the Alkahest -- the Absolute -- a substance common to all created things, differentiated by one primary force. Such is the net meaning and position of the problem of the Absolute, which appears to me to be solvable. In it we find the mysterious Ternary, before whose shrine humanity has knelt from the dawn of ages'
Mémoires de deux jeunes mariées by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 1998 in French and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elles sont deux, Renée et Louise, qui, à peine sorties du couvent, vont suivre des destinées contraires. Faut-il mettre de la passion dans le mariage? Ou y chercher un bonheur raisonnable? Derrière cette 'dispute', menée par correspondance, une lutte sourde oppose deux ambitions : Renée la sage n'exige pas moins de la vie que Louise la folle. Débat sur la mariage, les Mémoires de deux jeunes mariées sont aussi l'histoire d'une rivalité. Et si la sagesse finit par triompher du 'romanesque', il ne faut peut-être pas trop se fier au dénouement: 'J'aimerais mieux être tué par Louise que de vivre longtemps avec Renée', disait Balzac. -- Back cover
César Birotteau by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 2010 in French and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the unifying themes that wends its way through Honore de Balzac's immense body of work is the corrupting danger of greed -- and the often-absurd lengths to which people will go to secure material wealth. In the wonderful novel Rise and Fall of Cesar Birotteau, the title character starts out as a successful perfume-maker who is gradually lured to the dark side by the promise of ill-gotten gains
Études de femme by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

12 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moins connu que Balzac romancier, voici Balzac maître de la nouvelle. Ces deux récits parlent d'amour, du mal d'amour et de vengeance. Ils sont des épisodes de la vie de certains personnages de La Comédie humaine que l'on croise ici brièvement. Étude de femme nous conte un moment cruel et éphémère : un jeune homme, croyant envoyer une lettre d'amour à sa maîtresse, se trompe d'adresse et la missive parvient chez une épouse fidèle, mais qui se prend à rêver devant les mots brûlants. La Grande Bretèche est l'histoire d'une vengeance terrible, celle d'un mari trompé. Une nouvelle écrite en cercles concentriques jusqu'au dénouement impitoyable
