" Il y a des seins pleins de calme. Il y a des seins pleins de douleur. Il y a des seins pleins de passion. Il y a des seins pleins de divorce. Il y a des seins pleins de calamités. Il y a des seins pleins de poison. Il y a des seins pleins d'énervement. Il y a des seins pleins de larmes. Il y a des seins pleins de nuit. Il y a des seins pleins de surprises. Il y a des seins pleins de charité. Il y a des seins pleins d'adultère. Il y a des seins pleins d'or amassé. " Catalogue irraisonné, variation infinie sur le même objet, le livre des seins est un inventaire fou, baroque, parsemé de métaphores délirantes, le livre d'un adorateur, que Ramon Gomez de la Serna écrivit, de son propre aveu, " à là va comme je te presse, jonglant ludiquement avec les brefs ivoires des seins, jouant du style, les modelant du verbe et de l'imagination comme en leur propre céramique idéale ".
It is 1866, and Walter Moody has come to make his fortune upon the New Zealand goldfields. On arrival, he stumbles across a tense gathering of twelve local men, who have met in secret to discuss a series of unsolved crimes. A wealthy man has vanished, a whore has tried to end her life, and an enormous fortune has been discovered in the home of a luckless drunk. Moody is soon drawn into the mystery: a network of fates and fortunes that is as complex and exquisitely patterned as the night sky. The Luminaries is an extraordinary piece of fiction. It is full of narrative, linguistic and psychological pleasures, and has a fiendishly clever and original structuring device. Written in pitch-perfect historical register, richly evoking a mid-19th century world of shipping and banking and goldrush boom and bust, it is also a ghost story, and a gripping mystery. It is a thrilling achievement and will confirm for critics and readers that Catton is one of the brightest stars in the international writing firmament.
This book is an English translation of Book 25 of the Astrologia Gallica, in which Morin explains how to make Mundane Predictions for a particular place by using Aries Ingresses and Lunations (along with their quarters) as the main tools. He discusses the common use of Solar and Lunar Eclipses for that purpose and concludes that they are of only minor importance and do not have the long-lasting effects usually attributed to them. He also discusses the possibility of drawing some conclusions from the Conjunctions of the outer Planets and even from Comets. Morin was a physician who became the most renowned of all French astrologers. He was appointed Royal Mathematician to King Louis XIII and was summoned to be present at the birth of the royal heir, the future King Louis XIV. The present volume contains Morin s example charts of several Ingresses and one Eclipse as seen at Paris, France, in 1646, with a detailed explanation of his method of interpreting them. An added feature of this book is Jean Hieroz s statement of Offusius s rules for Planetary strength and Hieroz s own account of his efforts to use Morin s methods to predict the outbreak of World War II in 1939. Jean Hieroz (b.1889) was a prominent French astrologer in the 1930s and 1940s. He had studied under Henri Selva, the French revival astrologer who had rescued J-B Morin s Astrologia Gallica from obscurity and published the first translation of Book 21 of that work. James Herschel Holden is Research Director of the American Federation of Astrologers and has previously translated Books 13-17, 19, 22, 23, and 24 of the Astrologia Gallica.

Voltaire Treatise on Tolerance
Voltaire is widely known as the author of a literary masterpiece, Candide, while his reputation as a thinker rests largely on his Philosophical Letters and Philosophical Dictionary. He is equally renowned as a critic of the forces of superstition and fanaticism, and a champion of freedom of thought and belief. The works presented here, in a new English translation, are among the most important and characteristic texts of the Enlightenment, and bring together all three aspects of Voltaire: the writer, the doer and the philosophe. Originating in Voltaire's campaign to exonerate Jean Calas, they are works of polemical brilliance, informed by his deism and humanism and by Enlightenment values and ideals more generally. The issues which they raise, concerning questions of tolerance and human dignity, are still highly relevant to our own times. This volume presents them together with an introduction by Simon Harvey and useful notes on further reading.
