Excerpt from The Works of Honore De Balzac, Vol. 7: At the Sign of the Cat and Racket (La Maison Du Chat-Qui-Pelote), And Other Stories As for bibliography, La Maison da chat-qui-pelote, under the title above referred to, saw the light first with other Scenes de la Vie Privee in 1830. But it was not dated as of the previous year till five years later, in its third edition; while the title was not changed till the great collection itself. Of its companions, Le Bal de Sceauzr was an original one, and seems to have been written as well as published more or less at the same time. It at first had an alternative title, Ou le Pair de France, which was afterwards dropped. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Fashioning The Bourgeoisie from the Author: Philippe Perrot. Available now for the first time in English, Fashioning the Bourgeoisie was one of the first extensive studies to explain a culture's sociology through the seemingly simple issue of the choice of clothing. Philippe Perrot shows, through a delightful tour of the rise of the ready-made fashion industry in France, how clothing can not only reflect but also inculcate beliefs, values, and aspirations. By the middle of the century, men were prompted to disdain the decadent and gaudy colors of the pre-Revolutionary period and wear unrelievedly black frock coats suitable to the manly and serious world of commerce. Their wives and daughters, on the other hand, adorned themselves in bright colors and often uncomfortable and impractical laces and petticoats, to signal the status of their family. The consumer pastime of shopping was born, as women spent their spare hours keeping up their middle-class appearance, or creating one by judicious purchases.

At The Sign Of The Cat And Racket from the Author: Honore De Balzac. Excerpt from At the Sign of the Cat and Racket: La Maison Du Chat-Qui-Pelote Racket' itself, quite examples of putting the best foot foremost. Le Ba] de Sceaux, ' with its satire on contempt for trade, is in some ways more like Balzac's young friend and pupil Charles de Bernard than like himself; andi believe it attracted English notice pretty early. At least I seem, when quite a boy, and long before I read the Comea'z'e Humaine, to have seen an English version or paraphrase of it. 'la Bourse, ' though agreeable, is a little slight and La Vendetta might have been written on so well known a donnee by many persons besides Balzac. It happens, moreover, to contrast most un fortunately with the terrible and exquisite perfection of Merimee's 'mateo Falcone.' I should rank 'madame F irmiani' a good deal higher than any of these three, though it too is a little slight, and though it is not in Balzac's most characteristic or important manner. Rather, perhaps, does it remind us of the Physiologies' and the other social 'skits' and sketches which he was writing for the Caricature and other papers at the time. Still, the various descriptions of the heroine have a point and sparkle which are almost peculiar to the not quite mature work of men of genius and the actual story has a light ness which, perhaps, would have disappeared if Balzac had handled it at greater length.
