In this interdisciplinary exploration of the cultural and social history of early 19th-century France, Patricia Mainardi focuses on what was considered a major social problem of the time - adultery. In a period when expectations about marriage were changing, the problems of husbands, wives and lovers became a major theme in theatre, literature and the visual arts. The author demonstrates that this intense interest was historically grounded in the post-revolutionary collision between the new concept of the individual's right to happiness and the traditional prerogatives of family and state. duty or happiness more important? Are arranged marriages doomed to be empty of love and poisoned by adultery? Should adulterous wives and their lovers be punished while husbands may commit adultery with impunity? Out of such legal, social and cultural debates ultimately emerged modern bourgeois family values, Mainardi argues. And she illuminates how art, in all its varieties, both influences and is influenced by social change.

This volume contains the French text of Jean-François Regnard's 1696 comic play Le Joueur, edited by Arthur Tilley and first published in 1918. Tilley's edition draws principally from the text of G. d'Heylli's 1876 edition of the Théâtre du Regnard and adopts modernised spelling, punctuation, and arrangement of scenes. The text of the play is supported by an introduction, examining the life of Regnard and the reception of Le Joueur, and notes on some of the more difficult words and phrases that appear in the work for which Tilley consulted several contemporary seventeenth-century dictionaries.

Considered by Jean Renoir to be the greatest living sculptor of his time, Edgar Degas exhibited only one statute during his lifetime--the incomparable Little Dancer, Aged Fourteen. The work met with mixed reception, labeled vulgar by the conservative and quintessentially modern by the avant-garde. Following the artist's death in 1917, about 80 works were rescued, from his studio, and his heirs contracted with a foundry to case them in strictly limited editions, which have long since become prized pieces the world over. Documenting only four complete vintage sets of the bronzes, this lavishly illustrated catalogue presents for the first time stunning color images of the sculptures together with archival photographs taken of the original models found in Degas's studio in 1917-18 and historic photographs taken 50 years ago by Leonard von Matt. Included also are reprints of essays written in 1921 by a contemporary of the artist, by John Rewald to accompany relatively early exhibitions of Degas's work in the 50s and 70s, and by contemporary art historians, as well as appendices that include extensive exhibition, sales, and auction records, among other primary source materials.
