This 1900 volume includes two of the most famous works by Honoré de Balzac: Old Goriot and A Marriage Settlement. Balzac (1799-1850) was a French author of novels, short stories and plays who is most well-known for his work The Human Comedy, which interlinks a series of novels and short stories. Both Old Goriot and A Marriage Settlement are part of The Human Comedy. Set in Paris following the the fall of Napoleon at Waterloo, Old Goriot juxtaposes the personalities of a world-wise criminal, a gentle old father who dotes on his daughter and an idealistic young law student. A Marriage Settlement examines the illusions of marriage through the story of a French gentleman who falls in love with a spoiled Spanish heiress. Both works are prime examples of Balzac's unflinching realism

"At the turn of the century, Opal grew up literally barefoot and dirt poor in Oregon's logging camps. From an early age she stood out. She seemed to be a child prodigy with an encyclopedic knowledge of nature. She collected and labeled thousands of specimens of plants and insects, and as a young teenager gave lectures to her classmates and the community. By the time she was seventeen years old, she had gained national attention and she was touring the state as a religious leader. But it was a childhood diary that gained her international fame. As a young woman she published a diary she said she had written when she was about 6-years old. In it, she described the lumber camps as a child's fairyland. The diary quickly became a best seller." --
