Calvet's Web is a study of the correspondence network of an Avignon physician in the period 1750-1810. Esprit Calvet was an antiquarian, natural historian, and bibliophile, and was at the centre of a circle of like-minded intellectuals from various backgrounds, chiefly based in the Rhone valley. Laurence Brockliss explores for the first time in detail the intellectual interests and relationships of a representative sample of the French Republic of Letters. He traces the destruction of the Republic during the Revolution, and its reconstruction, in different guise, under Napoleon. Calvet's Web is an important contribution to our understanding of the social construction of knowledge, the history of collecting, and the history of the book. In addition, by examining the circle's attitude to the philosophes and their programme of material and moral progress, it offers a new picture of the relationship between the Republic of Letters and the Enlightenment.

This is the first book ever to be written about the relationship between Flauberts writing and pictorial art. Flauberts responses to a wide range of pictorial images, from classical to popular, were both powerful and ambivalent, with insights, in many instances, of an extraordinary modernity, and intuitions of an art of the future. This study traces the processes by which pictorial art penetrates the very fibre of Flauberts writing. Viewed by Flaubert as the sister art, pictorial art is for him both rival and foil. This study casts significant new light on the poetic system of a major writer, and adds a new dimension to the study of the literary and aesthetic sensibilities of the mid-nineteenth century.

First published in 1984, Professor Knecht's study quickly established itself as the best short account of the period. The reigns of Francis I and Henry II, spanning the first half of the sixteenth century, are one of the most colourful and formative periods of French history. In addition to examining the nature and effectiveness of their reigns, Professor Knecht also examines their foreign policies which brought them into conflict with other major powers. For this new edition the author has added a new chapter on paatronage and the arts.
