One of the most widely read feminist texts of the twentieth century, and Monique Wittig’s most popular novel, Les Guérillères imagines the attack on the language and bodies of men by a tribe of warrior women. Among the women’s most powerful weapons in their assault is laughter, but they also threaten literary and linguistic customs of the patriarchal order with bullets. In this breathtakingly rapid novel first published in 1969, Wittig animates a lesbian society that invites all women to join their fight, their circle, and their community. A path-breaking novel about creating and sustaining freedom, the book derives much of its energy from its vaunting of the female body as a resource for literary invention.

During the year 1866, ships of several nations spot a mysterious sea monster, which some suggest to be a giant narwhal. The United States government assembles an expedition in New York City to find and destroy the monster. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a French marine biologist and narrator of the story, who happens to be in New York at the time, receives a last-minute invitation to join the expedition which he accepts. The ship finds the monster after a long search and then attacks the beast, which damages the ship's rudder. The three protagonists are then hurled into the water and grasp hold of the "hide" of the creature, which they find, to their surprise, to be a submarine very far ahead of its era. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo. L'apparition d'une bête monstrueuse en 1866 dans plusieurs mers du globe défraie la chronique. L'animal, rapide, fusiforme et phosphorescent, est responsable de plusieurs naufrages, brisant le bois des navires avec une force colossale. De retour d'une expédition dans le Nebraska, Pierre Aronnax, professeur suppléant au Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, émet l'hypothèse d'un narval géant. Les compagnies d'assurances maritimes menacent d'augmenter leurs prix et demandent que le monstre soit éliminé. Une grande chasse est alors organisée à bord de l’Abraham Lincoln, fleuron de la marine américaine, mené par le commandant Farragut. Aronnax reçoit une lettre du secrétaire de la Marine lui demandant de rejoindre l’expédition pour représenter la France. Le scientifique embarque avec son fidèle domestique flamand, Conseil. Après des mois de navigation, la confrontation avec le monstre a enfin lieu, et l'Abraham Lincoln est endommagé. Un choc entre le monstre et la frégate projette Aronnax, Conseil et Ned par-dessus bord. Ils échouent finalement sur le dos du monstre, qui n'est autre qu'un sous-marin en tôle armée. Les naufragés sont faits prisonniers et se retrouvent à bord du mystérieux appareil. Ils font alors connaissance du capitaine Nemo, qui refuse de leur rendre la liberté.

Famed as a classic naval duel, a one-on-one clash between two sailing frigates offered the victor immeasurable fame and glory. During the War of 1812, the Royal Navy and United States Navy squared off in four such duels, the most famous that between the USS Constitution and HMS Guerrière. Ships and tactics between the two nations varied enormously, with the American navy favouring a revolutionary design of frigate, with twenty-four pounder guns and heavy structural timbers, while the British, used to fighting the French and Spanish navies, relied on smaller, eighteen-pounder frigates. Through first-hand accounts of these four single-ship actions and fascinating comparisons of artillery, crew ability and tactical achievements, this book offers an unparalleled insight into the ruthless reality of frigate battles in the War of 1812.

According to Mary, in December 1878, her father had telegraphed her upon his safe return from India and requested her to meet him at the Langham Hotel in London. When Mary arrived at the hotel, she was told her father had gone out the previous night and not returned. Despite all efforts, no trace has ever been found of him. Mary contacted her father's only friend who was in the same regiment and had since retired to England, one Major John Sholto, but he denied knowing her father had returned. En 1888, une jeune cliente blonde, Mary Morstan, débarque chez Holmes, et lui demande de l'aide. Elle lui explique qu'elle est gouvernante, et que c'est sa patronne qui lui a conseillé de venir ici. Watson tombe sous le charme de la jeune femme qui expose son problème : son père, navigateur dans les Indes, est décédé environ dix ans auparavant (disparu le 3 décembre 1878). Or, elle reçoit, depuis six ans, et à cycle régulier, des perles de grande valeur. Et ce même jour lui est parvenu une enveloppe où un anonyme lui demande de venir à un rendez-vous, accompagnée si elle le souhaite, mais pas d'un policier.

The product of twenty years of laborious hard work, this is the definitive work on Napoleon and his times at the helm of the French Nation, written by no less than the first President of the Third Republic. Thiers moved in the highest circles of society and met with many of the surviving generals and statesmen of France and her opponents and wove their recollections into this monumental history. Filled with a particularly Gallic flavour without going into hero-worship, this multi-volume history has stood the test of time. Volume Eight chronicles the disastrous 1812 campaign in Russia and the retreat that wrecked the Grande Armée. Includes the Napoleonic Wars Map Pack with over 155 maps and plans following the military career of Napoleon.

In the Age of Fighting Sail (1650?1820), ambitious officers of the navies of many nations sought command of a frigate. Speedy, nimble and formidably armed, frigates often operated independently, unlike the larger ships of the line. Legendary sailors such as Edward Pellew and Charles-Alexandre Léon Durand, Comte de Linoise, found that commanding such a ship offered numerous opportunities for wealth. In this book, four representative frigate duels are examined: first, a battle fought between two closely matched ships (HMS Nymphe (36) vs La Cléopâtre (32); second, a victory won by an inferior British frigate over a superior French frigate (HMS Pallas (32) vs Minerve (40); third, a victory ? the only one ? by an inferior French frigate over a superior British frigate (HMS Ambuscade (32) vs Baà ̄onnaise (24), and fourth, victory of a superior British frigate over an inferior French frigate (HMS Indefatigable (44) of Hornblower fame vs La Virginie (40). Featuring specially commissioned artwork and offering expert analysis, this study provides a vivid account of the bloody combats fought by the most romantic warship of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic era ? the frigate.

BRUIT, chimères, grandeurs, éclat, tout a cessé !... Porterons-nous encor les yeux vers la victoire ? Vers ce passé fameux, chargé de tant de gloire ?... Un revers a tout effacé ! Cependant, c’est au bruit de nos mâles courages, Que s’étaient élancés avec notre laurier, Ces cris d’étonnement, ces cris d’un âge entier, Qui retentiront dans les âges. Invincible au milieu de ses braves Français, Et n’étant point encore instruit par les défaites, Bonaparte, égaré par de trop longs succès, Avait fixé les yeux sur l’astre des conquêtes : Il crut qu’il le suivrait dans le plus froid climat, Et son œil aveuglé d’un trop brillant éclat, Au milieu des brouillards cherchait le météore, Et dans un ciel désert croyait le voir encore. Fruit d’une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.
