Père Goriot by Honoré de Balzac( Book )
2,327 editions published between 1834 and 2016 in 32 languages and held by 14,204 libraries worldwide
At the shabby boarding house in the rue Neuve-Sainte-Genevieve, petty Madame Vauquer and her tenants wonder at the plight of the aging resident Goriot. Once a well-heeled merchant, Goriot was--at first--afforded special treatment from the Madame. But now something is clearly amiss in his financial affairs, and his increasingly tawdry appearance makes him a subject of ridicule in the household. Some think he lost in the markets, others see him as a lecherous patron of prostitutes, but one thing is clear: his selflessness and complete devotion to his two daughters
Eugénie Grandet by Honoré de Balzac( Book )
2,223 editions published between 1830 and 2017 in 34 languages and held by 10,138 libraries worldwide
Depicting the fatal clash between material desires and the liberating power of human passions, Honore de Balzac's ""Eugenie Grandet"" is translated with an introduction by M.A. Crawford in ""Penguin Classics"". In a gloomy house in provincial Saumur, the miser Grandet lives with his wife and daughter, Eugenie, whose lives are stifled and overshadowed by his obsession with gold. Guarding his piles of glittering treasures and his only child equally closely, he will let no one near them. But when the arrival of her handsome cousin, Charles, awakens Eugenie's own desires, her passion b

Droll stories by Honoré de Balzac( Book )
753 editions published between 1831 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 5,218 libraries worldwide
"Balzac's Contes Drolatiques, or Droll Stories, were originally published in three volumes in the 1830s. Set in medieval Europe, these stories were Balzac's attempt to write in the great tradition of Rabelais and Boccaccio, to render the Middle Ages with a touch of raunchy humor, and to provide a delightful portrait of medieval France. Balzac took the old themes that had delighted his ancestors--the tales of faithless wives and confiding husbands, of monks incredibly endowed for amorous athleticism, of lusty wenches and adventurous lads, and of great bouts of eating and drinking." --
La Peau de chagrin by Honoré de Balzac( Book )
1,046 editions published between 1830 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 4,587 libraries worldwide
The first new English translation for more than 35 years of Balzac's extraordinary The Wild Ass's Skin, it is also the first edition in English to include Balzac's original Preface of 1831. This novel has been freshly translated by Helen Constantine, who captures Balzac's stylistic energy and exuberance. Patrick Coleman's wide-ranging introduction considers the multiple perspectives of the novel, its conceptualization of historical change, and its satirical commentary on contemporary society. His extensive notes clarify Balzac's many allusions to the culture and society of his time. The book also includes an up-to-date bibliography and helpful map of Paris in 1830

"Ursula (original French title Ursule Mirouet, 1842) forms one part of Scenes from Provincial Life, a series of novels-whose other major work is Eugenie Grandet-examining manners and morals in the French provinces. Among all the novels of Honore de Balzac (1799-1850), none depicts so penetratingly the small-mindedness, avarice, and envy of the provincial lower middle classes. No limitations based on morality or decency will hold these people back in their effort to acquire wealth and influence"--Page 4 of cover
