Footsteps : adventures of a Romantic biographer by Richard Holmes( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in French and held by 20 libraries worldwide
Richard Holmes's great work of biographical exploration, published alongside its sister volume 'Sidetracks'. In 1985, Richard Holmes published a small book of essays called 'Footsteps' and the writing of biography was changed forever. A daring mix of travel, biographical sleuthing and personal memoir, it broke all the conventions of the genre and remains ons of the most intoxicating, magical works of modern literary exploration ever published. Sleeping rough, he retraces Robert Louis Stevenson's famous journey through the Cevennes. Caught up in the Parisian riots of the 1960s, he dives back in time to the terrors of Wordsworth and of Mary Wollstonecraft marooned in Revolutionary Paris and then into the strange tortured worlds of GErard de Nerval. Wandering through Italy, he stalks Shelley and his band of Romantic idealists to Casa Magni on the Gulf of Spezia. Note that it has not been possible to include the same picture content that appeared in the original print version

Intégrale des nouvelles by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in French and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Stevenson est aujourd'hui considéré (aux côtés d'Edgar Poe et de Henry James) comme l'un des plus grands auteurs de nouvelles de langue anglaise. L'Intégrale de ce corpus considérable (près de 1 500 pages - ici eu deux volumes) n'avait jamais été rassemblé en français à ce jour. Une première due à la passion et à l'érudition de Michel Le Bris, spécialiste mondialement reconnu de l'écrivain. Les récits regroupés dans ce second volume s'étendent sur trente ans exactement (si l'on compte la première œuvre marquante de l'écrivain en ce domaine ... écrite à l'âge de 14 ans!). Y figurent quelques-uns des chefs-d'œuvre de l'écrivain : ainsi Olalla - que l'on trouvera ici dans une traduction signée Alfred Jarry ; et quelques grands textes composés tout à la fin, déjà sous l'ombre de la mort, au premier rang desquels Ceux de Falesa - aux accents quasi "conradiens".

À propos des textes qui se trouvent réunis dans ce premier volume (l'ensemble des Nouvelles Mille et Une Nuits), Henry James, critique difficile (et rival) ... mais en l'occurrence admirateur inconditionnel, livre ce jugement sans appel : "Le merveilleux sous sa forme la plus franche et la plus délectable."
