A classic swashbuckler, Alexander Dumas’s The Three Musketeers tells the story of young d’Artagnan as he attempts to join the most elite military group of the day, the Musketeers of the Guard, who report directly to the king. D’Artagnan sets out to Paris with a letter of introduction, vouching for his fencing skills, only to be intercepted by spies for the evil Cardinal Richelieu, who take his money and the all-important introduction. Nevertheless, d’Artagnon proves his worth as he fights alongside the most famous trio of fencers in the Musketeers, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. The four become close friends as they fight for the king against a bevy of spies, traitors, and seductresses. The Three Musketeers is one of the great adventure stories of all time, giving us larger-than-life characters who extend beyond the scope of this novel. Anyone who likes adventure stories will love this classic of the genre.

In this book, Carl Goldstein examines the print culture of seventeenth-century France through a study of the career of Abraham Bosse, a well-known printmaker, book illustrator, and author of books and pamphlets on a variety of technical subjects. The consummate print professional, Bosse persistently explored the endless possibilities of print – single-sheet prints combining text and image, book illustration, broadsides, placards, almanacs, theses, and pamphlets. Bosse had a profound understanding of print technology as a fundamental agent of change. Unlike previous studies, which have largely focused on the printed word, this book demonstrates the extent to which the contributions of an individual printmaker and the visual image are fundamental to understanding the nature and development of early modern print culture.

The 2005 Avant-projet de réforme du droit des obligations et de la prescription, also dubbed the Avant-projet Catala, suggests the most far-reaching reform of the French Civil code since it came into force in 1804. It reviews central aspects of contract law, the law of delict and the law of unjustified enrichment. There is currently a very lively debate in France as to the merits or the demerits of both the particular draft provisions and the general idea of recodification as such. This volume is the first publication to introduce the reform proposals to an English speaking audience. It contains the official English translation of the text, and distinguished private lawyers from both England and France analyse and assess particularly interesting aspects of the substantive draft provisions in a comparative perspective. Topics covered include negotiation and renegotiation of contracts, la cause, the enforcement of contractual obligations, termination of contract and its consequences, the effects of contracts on third parties, the definition of la faute, the quantification of damages, and the law of prescription. The volume also contains an overall assessment of the draft provisions by one of the most senior French judges who chaired the Working Party on the Avant-projet, established by the French Supreme Court, the Cour de cassation. The book is indispensable for comparative private lawyers and lawyers with a particular interest in French law. It is also of use to all private lawyers (both academics and practitioners) looking for information on recent international and European trends in contract and tort.
