Using a variety of feminine and masculine pseudonyms to theorize about fashion and to advise on popular vacation destinations, home furnishings, and entertainment, Mallarmé created a spectacularly original work. The distinguishing feature of Mallarme's magazine is that it explores the nature of fashion from the inside. While it is a genuine fashion magazine, it also satirizes the entire genre. Various theories have been entertained about the work: it has been viewed as a prose poem, a hoax, and a cynical money-making venture. Furbank and Cain, however, argue that such guesses are hopelessly off the mark. Complete with the original artwork and a contextualizing introduction and commentary, this is the definitive translation of one of French literature's greatest enigmas+-+336282403673924ocn040809228book19480.66Furbank, Philip NicholasSamuel Butler, 1835-1902BiographyBibliography50632ocn000039589book19680.31Dickens, CharlesLife and adventures of Martin ChuzzlewitHistoryFictionPicaresque literatureSatireAt The Center of Martin Chuzzlewit -- the novel Angus Wilson called "one of the most sheerly exciting of all Dickens stories"--Is Martin himself, very old, very rich, very much on his guard. What he suspects (with good reason) is that every one of Iris close and distant relations. now converging in droves on the country inn where they believe he is dying, will stop at nothing to become the inheritor of Iris great fortune. Having unjustly disinherited Iris grandson, young Martin, the old fellow now trusts no one but Mary Graham, the pretty girl hired as Iris companion. Though she has been made to understand she will not inherit a penny, she remains old Chuzzlewit's only ally. As the viperish relations and hangers-on close in on him, we meet some of Dickens's most marvelous characters -- among them Mr. Pecksniff (whose name has entered the language as a synonym for ultimate hypocrisy and self-importance); the fabulously evil Jonas Chuzzlewit; the strutting reptile Tigg Montague; and the ridiculous, terrible, comical Sairey Gamp. Reluctantly heading for America in search of opportunity, the penniless young Martin goes west, rides a riverboat, and is overtaken by bad company and mortal danger -- while the battle for his grandfather's gold reveals new depths of family treachery, cunning, and ruthlessness. And in scene after wonderful scene of conflict and suspense, of high excitement and fierce and hilarious satire, Dickens's huge saga of greed versus decency comes to its magnificent climax+-+36858959654929ocn016580100book19880.70Furbank, Philip NicholasThe canonisation of Daniel DefoeHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc4832ocn024174891book19910.50Diderot, DenisThis is not a story and other stories38215ocn022490415book19910.47Defoe, DanielA tour through the whole island of Great BritainThis historic book may have numerous typos, missing text or index.

CONTAINING A Description of the greatest Part of the Principality of Wales. Thought I should not pay the Principality the Respect it so well deserves, if I did not begin a Letter with the Description of it; it being the Country of that brave People, who had an original Right to the whole Island, and made so noble a Stand in Defence of their Liberties and Independency; and, at last, rather than submit to a foreign Yoke, chose to be free in this remote and inaccessible Part of it. But here let me premise, that Wales is represented in the British Parliament by .24 Members. The Counties and Towns which return them will be particulariz'd in the general List, which I shall present you with at the End of my Tour thro' this Southern Part of the Island (a). The two first Counties which border West upon Monmouthshire are Brecknock and Glamorgan, and are ery mountainous on the East Side, which gives a (.} See at the Conclusion of Vol. III. Traveler Traveler a terrible Apprehension of the Country he is this way entering into, and an Expectation of meeting with nothing that is agreeable; but he is not long before he is undeceived, and finds the Reward of his Trouble. In that Part of Monmouthjhire which joins the two Counties, begins the Rising of the Hills. Kyrton-Beacon, Tumbcrlow, Blorench, Penvail, and Skirridan, are some of the Names of these horrid Mountains, and are all in this Shire; and I could not but fansy myself in View of Mount Brennus, Little-Barnard, and Great-Barnard, among the Æps. We now entered South Wales; which contains the Shires of Glamorgan, Brecknock, Radnor, Caermarthen, Pembroke, and Cardigan.
