A general history of quadrupeds the figures engraved on wood by Thomas Bewick ( )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the late eighteenth century, the British took greater interest than ever before in observing and recording all aspects of the natural world. Travelers and colonists returning from far-flung lands provided dazzling accounts of such exotic creatures as elephants, baboons, and kangaroos. The engraver Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) harnessed this newfound interest by assembling the most comprehensive illustrated guide to nature of his day. A General History of Quadrupeds, first published in 1790, showcases Bewick's groundbreaking engraving techniques that allowed text and images to be published on th
The facts behind the Helsinki Roccamatios by Yann Martel ( Book )
16 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here are four unforgettable stories by the author of Life of Pi. In the exquisite title novella, a very young man dying of AIDS joins his friend in fashioning a story of the Roccamatio family of Helsinki, set against the yearly march of the twentieth century whose horrors and miracles their story echoes. In "The Time I Heard the Private Donald J. Rankin String Concerto with One Discordant Violin, by the American composer John Morton," a Canadian university student visits Washington, D.C., and experiences the Vietnam War and its aftermath through an intense musical encounter. In "Manners of Dying," variations of a warden's letter to the mother of a son he has just executed reveal how each life is contained in its end. The final story, "The Mirror Machine", is about a young man who discovers an antique mirror-making machine in his grandmother's attic. The man's fascination with the object is juxtaposed with the longwinded reminiscences it evokes from his grandmother. Written earlier in Martel's career, these tales are as moving as they are thought-provoking, as inventive in form as they are timeless in content. They display that startling mix of dazzle and depth that have made Yann Martel an international phenomenon

Après un naufrage au beau milieu du Pacifique où périssent sa famille et les animaux du zoo, en route vers le Canada, il vivra 227 jours sur une embarcation de secours, avec pour unique compagnon un tigre royal du Bengale. À mi-chemin entre Daniel Defoe et Saint-Exupéry, un roman à la fois extravagant et vraisemblable, là réside la grande réussite du livre, où se côtoient leçons de zoologie, réflexions sur les religions et le sens de la vie, ainsi qu'un éloge de l'ingéniosité et du courage de l'homme. Humanisme et humour. [SDM]
