Abraham Lincoln raved that this series of historical biographies gave him "just that knowledge of past men and events which I need. I have read them with the greatest interest. To them I am indebted for about all the historical knowledge I have." Considered what we would now call "young adult" literature, this collection, first published between 1848 and 1871, was designed to present a clear, distinct, connected narrative of the lives of the great figures of world history, those people who have been most influential, at least as American pastor and historian JOHN STEVENS CABOT ABBOTT (1805-1877) saw it from his 19th-century perspective. Wildly popular and republished many times under different collected names, this replica set mimics the 1904 reprint known as the "Makers of History" series. It will delight students of history as well as show the scholar how history telling has changed over the last few centuries. More than 30 other volumes in the series are also available from Cosimo Classics. This volume, dating from 1870, covers French king Louis XIV (1638-1715), from his birth and childhood and his rule as "the boy-king" to festivities at the court, the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, intrigues and wars, and more.

Gustave Flaubert, whose Madame Bovary outraged France's right-thinking bourgeoisie when it was first published in 1857, is brought to life in Frederick Brown's new biography in all his singularity and brilliance. Frederick Brown's portrayal is of an artist fraught with contradictions - his wit and bravado coexisting with great vulnerability. A sedentary man by nature, Flaubert undertook epic voyages through Egypt and the Middle East. He could be flamboyantly uncouth, but was fanatically devoted to a beautifully cadenced prose. While energized by his camaraderie with male friends, such as Turgenev, the Goncourt brothers, Zola and Maupassant, he depended for emotional nurturing upon maternal women, most notably George Sand. Nineteenth-century France literally put Flaubert on trial for portraying 'lewd behaviour' in Madame Bovary. But it also made him a celebrity and, indirectly, brought about his financial ruin, probably hastening his sudden death at the age of fifty-nine. Although writing was something like torture for him, it preoccupied his mind and dominated his life. He privately dreamed of popular success, which he achieved with Madame Bovary, but adamantly refused to sacrifice to it his ideal of artistic integrity. Of Flaubert's life, his inner world, his times and his legacy, Frederick Brown's magisterial biography is a revelation. It was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize for biography and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Catywampus: is a continuation of the story begun in Admirals Son Generals Daughter and is a parallel to Jigsaw. This book describes in vivid detail what may have occurred in the United States Military between 1896 and 1906 during the McKinley and Roosevelt Presidential administrations. The narration is by the grandson of a career naval officer, born in Beaufort, South Carolina. He will serve as a cadet in Annapolis and as a member of the elite submarine commanders in the United States Navy. The historical events of 1896 through 1906 are carefully followed. The imagination of the author provides rich characters in powerful settings from the torpedo proving grounds in Newport, Rhode Island to the jungles of Central America when he joins his brother on a navy manhunt of killers. The love story between a man and a woman is woven throughout the book when the grandson graduates from the naval academy and marries his childhood sweetheart. He is unaware that his father and his Uncle Theodore Roosevelt have decided to tap his knowledge of modern submarines and his photographic memory to become one of this countries most successful counter intelligence officers. Scenes are set carefully with attention to accurate research of the low country of South Carolina as well as our Nation's Capital circa 1896 -1906. The second edition of Peoples Standard History of the United States written by Edward S. Ellis and published in 1906 by Western Book Syndicate and copyrighted by the Woolfall Company have provided background materials, maps of the period and needed information on how the federal government was organized and functioned during this period of history

Françoise d'Aubigné, born in a bleak provincial prison, her father a condemned murderer and traitor to the state, rose from the depths of poverty to life at the vortex of power at Versailles. Married at fifteen to a tragically disfigured and scandalously popular poet, in his salon Françoise encountered all the brilliant characters of the seventeenth century's glitterati. After her husband's death, she led the life of a merry widow in the colourful Marais quarter of Paris, before becoming governess to the King's growing brood of royal bâtards. This is the extraordinary story of one woman's daring journey from beggar-girl, West Indian colonist and salonnière to royal mistress and thence, in secret, to the compromised position of Louis' uncrowned Queen. Through the rags-to-riches tale of the marquise de Maintenon, Veronica Buckley reveals every layer of the vibrant and shocking world that was France in the age of Louis XIV.
