Cartulaire de l'Abbaye de Savigny 2 Volume Set: Suivi du Petit Cartulaire de l'Abbaye d'Ainay
The son of a printer and bookshop owner, Auguste Bernard (1811-1868) quit his studies at the age of seventeen to become a typographer at the Parisian printing house of Firmin Didot, before becoming an editor with the royal printer. Bernard spent his leisure time collecting documents on the history of the people and customs of the ancient province of Forez (roughly, the area of the Loire valley). He is best known for his histories of typography and printing in France and Europe, his most celebrated work being his biography of Geoffroy Tory, the first French royal printer. He published in 1853 this collection in two volumes, containing the first printed transcriptions of the medieval charters of the Abbey of Savigny in northern France and the Abbey of Ainay in Lyon.

In 1836, the French King Louis-Philippe, enthusiastic for Southern Hemisphere exploration, supported J. Dumont d'Urville's plan for a circumnavigation focusing on the South Seas. D'Urville (1790-1842) had already distinguished himself on two Pacific expeditions and was eager to rival the achievements of James Cook. Between 1837 and 1840, the ships Astrolabe and Zelee explored the waters of the Antarctic area and Oceania in extremely harsh conditions: almost forty crew members died or deserted. However, d'Urville discovered a new portion of the Antarctic coast, shed light on the ethnography of several Pacific islands and brought back multitudes of botanical specimens. His impressive contributions to the fields of geography, natural history and ethnography were gathered in this ten-volume work, published between 1841 and 1846.

Cours d'histoire moderne 5 Volume Set: Histoire de la civilisation en France, depuis la chute de l'Empire Romain jusqu'en 1789
French politician Francois-Pierre-Guillaume Guizot (1787-1874) is well-known for establishing 'Guizot's law', which implemented primary education for all French citizens. As well as occupying various political offices during some of the most turbulent years in his nation's political history, Guizot was also an historian and was appointed to the chair of modern history at the Sorbonne in 1812. First published between 1829 and 1832, this five-volume history of 'civilisation in France' is based on a series of lectures delivered in 1828. The books are described as covering the period from the end of the Roman Empire to 1789, but the main focus is on the medieval period, to the death of St Louis (1270). Following the success of its initial publication, Guizot's history ran to several editions, influencing a great revival of interest in the study of French history in the nineteenth century.

Cartulaire de l'Abbaye de Saint-Victor de Marseille 2 Volume Set
One of the most powerful religious institutions in medieval France, the Abbey of Saint-Victor, Marseille, stood at the centre of the intellectual, political and spiritual life in the European middle ages. The two-volume Cartulary of the Abbey of Saint-Victor, first published in 1857, collects the abbey's charters dating from the seventh to the fourteenth centuries. These documents provide especially valuable insight into the abbey's history prior to 1000 CE, and bear witness to the influence of an institution whose possessions extended as far as Syria and Spain. They offer a wealth of information concerning the abbey's economic, diplomatic, and political history. This edition, newly available again to scholars, includes both the 'large' and 'small' cartularies together with additional documents.

Le Pouvoir de l'Absent: Les Avatars de l'Anticommunisme Au Congo (1920-1961)
Cet ouvrage a re u le prix du Centre des Archives communistes en Belgique, Prix CARCOB 2015 Obscures mouvances religieuses, remuants syndicats, espions industriels, trangers comploteurs ou toiles nationalistes ascendantes... Entre 1920 et 1961, le visage du p ril rouge au Congo fut prot iforme. Cet ouvrage entend mettre au clair, d'une part la r alit et le degr de dangerosit du communisme au Congo, et d'autre part les enjeux li s son combat, travers les variations qu'ils connurent, au gr de la conjoncture politique, conomique et sociale interne la Belgique et sa colonie, mais aussi de la configuration de l' chiquier international. Confrontant archives, travaux et t moignages in dits, notre analyse d montre que malgr son chec s'implanter in fine au Congo, le communisme n'en a pas moins exerc un pouvoir mobilisateur surprenant par toutes les r percussions et les r alisations que sa peur a engendr es. On peut d s lors parler de pouvoir de l'absent , et ce, dans une pl iade de domaines: sph res polici res et militaires, rouages diplomatiques et conomiques, enjeux politiques et identitaires. Recourant aux notions de mythe dans l' dification d'un Lumumba communiste ou de bouc missaire comme r gulateur de crise, notre tude se conclut plus largement sur les m canismes humains l'oeuvre dans l'identification d'un ennemi d stabilisateur, puis dans son limination, cens e apporter un apaisement ou une accr ditation symboliques.

Voyage en Syrie et en E gypte pendant les anne es 1783, 1784 et 1785 2 Volume Set
The French author and traveller Constantin-Francois de Chasseboeuf (1757-1820) adopted the pen name Volney, which combined the name of Voltaire and Ferney, where the great philosopher lived. A friend of Thomas Jefferson and other Enlightenment figures, Volney used an inheritance to further his education by travelling to Ottoman Egypt and the historical region of Syria, visiting areas of present-day Lebanon and Israel. He chose these lands as he believed he would gain political and philosophical insights from their ancient heritage. Very little had been written in the West about these areas before he published this two-volume account in 1787. It enjoyed great popularity and even accompanied Darwin aboard the Beagle on his own voyage of discovery decades later. Reissued here is the revised and corrected French second edition, which also appeared in 1787. The volumes explore geography, history, ethnic divisions, religious beliefs, commerce, politics and customs.
