Arthur Cleveland Finch was an eminently practical man. Naturally he didn't believe that the carnelian cube was a "dream-stone" with supernatural powers. But, of course, if he were going to wish himself into another world, he would choose one where everything was perfectly rational. Finch got his wish - with a bang! And he soon discovered that one man's rationality can easily be another man's nightmare. He awoke a poet in a strange place where status meant everything and a man could be tried for umpteen kinds of crimes for reciting a poem in public. So, being optimistic as well as practical, Finch tried again - and again. And the worlds kept getting wilder, more improbable, and funnier - but more dangerous, too. The question was, could Finch find Utopia¿ before losing his skin?

Les sites archéologiques de la vallée de l'Indus en témoignent l'artisanat des perles en cornaline remonte à plusieurs millénaires. De nos jours, il se pratique encore dans quelques rares endroits comme en Inde dans la ville de Cambay (Gujarat) qui offre au chercheur une occasion unique de construire des référentiels. Dans ce but, des méthodes d'enquête appropriées ont été élaborées. Elles aboutissent à des règles interprétatives portant sur les processus techniques, les habiletés de taille, le techno-système. Il s'ensuit une interprétation des perles de l'Indus et de la Mésopotamie en termes de production et de réseaux de distribution. Interprétations fondées qui permettent de nouvelles hypothèses sur la fonction de certaines perles et sur les conditions de leur apparition. L'ouvrage est accompagné d'un cédérom (Mac-PC). La totalité des constructions scientifiques y est présentée selon un mode d'édition qui permet une lecture rapide des résultats ainsi que la consultation d'une très importante base de données (photos, films, graphiques, tableaux).

Britain, 1934. Hester Blake, an ambitious girl from an industrial Northern town, finds a job as a lady's maid in a small aristocratic household. Despite their impressive title and glorious past, the Fitzmartins are crumbling under the tribulations of the new century. In the cold isolation of these new surroundings, Hester ends up hopelessly besotted with her young mistress, Lady Lucy. Fragile and enthralling, Lucy can weave fascinating stories like a spider weaves her web. Armed with shrewd wits and an iron will to match, she is determined to carve out a new life for herself. They are drawn to each other as kindred spirits, eager to take advantage of the new opportunities the world has to offer. Moreover, soon Hester gets to accompany Lady Lucy on her London Season, and readily plunges herself into the heady mix of passion, art and excitement of the glittering city. However, there are plenty of dark undercurrents swirling beneath the majestic imperial capital. The country is rife with discontent, and radical political movements are growing in influence day by day. There is a controversy, surrounding the new dictatorships of Europe, and struggles are breaking out in the press as well as in the streets. The hushed whispers of yet another war are still rare, but the battle for hearts and minds has already started, and Lucy's talent can be employed for very sinister ends. Meanwhile, Hester seems to be harboring some secrets of her own...

Johann Christian Neuber

The goldsmith and mineralogist Johann Christian Neuber (1736-1808) was one of the greatest masters of the gold objet - gold boxes, watch cases, chatelaines, etc. - which he in particular decorated to splendid effect with semiprecious stones - agate, jasper, carnelian and a host of others. In 1769 he became director of the Grünes Gewölbe, the magnificent State Treasury in Dresden, and in 1775 court jeweler to the court of Saxony. Neuber's work features enchanting landscapes, intricate floral designs and complex geometric patterns made out of tiny cut stones, incorporating also Meissen porcelain plaques, cameos and miniatures. These one-of-a-kind objects are treasured in public and private collections all over the world today, but have never been brought together.This book is the first comprehensive introduction to this master craftsman's oeuvre, presenting boxes and other decorative objects from the Grünes Gewölbe, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum and public and private collections in Germany, France and New York. One of its highlights is the 'Breteuil Table', still owned by the family for which is was made as a diplomatic gift nearly 250 years ago. It accompanies a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, at the Grünes Gewölbe, Dresden, March-May 2012; at the Frick Collection, New York, May-August; at the Galerie J. Kugel, Paris, Autumn 2012.Beautiful photographs of all Neuber's creations adorn this extraordinary book - well over 500 in number. The context and history of the growing interest in mineralogy and its celebration in these works of art are fully investigated. Its distinguished authors include Dr Jutta Kappel, of the Grünes Gewölbe; the specialists Sophie Mouquin and Philippe Poindront; the Marquis de Breteuil, Henri-François Le Tonnelier; and the editor of the volume, Alexis Kugel, of the famous Parisian gallery.

Terry McLaughlin

Un visiteur à Carnelian Cove, Terry McLaughlin Il avait suffi d'une danse et d'un dîner — merveilleux — pour que Charlie se surprenne à espérer de Jack Maguire beaucoup plus qu'une proposition professionnelle : une déclaration d'amour. Pourtant, au départ, leur rencontre avait été explosive : par sa seule présence, Jack McGuire s'apprêtait à mettre sens dessus dessous le petit monde encore sauvage, préservé et chaleureux de Carnelian Cove — si bien que Charlie, fidèle à son tempérament, lui avait dit ses quatre vérités et s'était dressée contre lui en comptant bien qu'il renonce à ses projets et quitte les lieux. Il avait réagi comme l'homme infiniment séduisant, habile et malicieux qu'il était : en lui lançant une invitation... et en lui faisant passer la soirée la plus douce, la plus exquise, la plus prometteuse qu'un homme lui ait jamais fait passer. Et maintenant qu'elle était en train de tomber follement amoureuse, qu'allait-elle faire ? Elle ne voulait plus que Maguire quitte Carnelian Cove — mais elle n'imaginait pas non plus vivre chaque jour à ses côtés comme une simple associée. Elle attendait plus, beaucoup plus. Mais lui ?
