This is an expansion of the first dictionary of symbols to be based on literature, rather than on 'universal' psychological archetypes or myths. It explains and illustrates the literary symbols that we frequently encounter (such as swan, rose, moon, gold) and gives thousands of cross-references and quotations. The dictionary concentrates on English literature, but its entries range widely from the Bible and classical authors to the twentieth century, taking in American and European literatures. For this third edition, Michael Ferber has included some twenty completely new entries (such as birch, childbirth, grove, mill and railroad) and has added to many of the existing entries. Its rich references make this book an essential tool not only for literary and classical scholars but also for all students of literature.

The languages of the ancient world and the mysterious scripts, long undeciphered, in which they were encoded have represented one of the most intriguing problems of classical archaeology in modern times. This celebrated account of the decipherment of Linear B in the 1950s by Michael Ventris was written by his close collaborator in the momentous discovery. In revealing the secrets of Linear B it offers a valuable survey of late Minoan and Myceanean archaeology, uncovering fascinating details of the religion and economic history of an ancient civilisation.

A wonderful account of the life of Frances Alda written in her own words. Frances Alda was the number one soprano in the world of opera during the first three decades of the 20th century. Hers was, for the most part, an extraordinarily easy road to fame, or else she has soft-pedalled the thorny paths. But she hasn't hesitated to paint herself as she is, with her temper, her fire, her passions.

En 1611, paraît à Londres A Dictionarie of the French and English Tongues par Randle Cotgrave. Ce dernier ayant, dit-il, « péniblement veillé & travaillé par plusieurs ans », offre alors à l’Angleterre cultivée, friande de la langue française et de sa littérature, ce qu’il appelle sa « créature verbale », en l’occurrence un imposant in-folio de 960 pages, environ 48 000 articles et près d’un million de mots au total. Avec « une attention particulière accordée aux expressions diverses et proverbes » (Bernard Quemada), ce « livre très important qui eut pendant longtemps un très grand succès » (Ferdinand Brunot) enregistre de façon très libérale force mots français présentés pour la première fois (brouhaha, colossal, intelligent...) ainsi que des mots attestés chez les auteurs du XVIe siècle (s’alouser, alterquer, s’embadurnoser...). Ce « chef d’œuvre dans l’histoire immense des bilingues » (Alain Rey) méritait, en franchissant le cap des 400 ans, l’hommage d’une réédition, accompagnée de deux études dues respectivement à Susan Baddeley et à Jean Pruvost.

Helena P. Blavatsky (1831-1891) is widely celebrated as the leading esoteric thinker of the nineteenth century who influenced an entire generation of artists and intellectuals and introduced Eastern spirituality to the West. Until now, however, readers have been able to know this fascinating woman only through her public writings. Few may have realized that H.P.B. was also a tireless correspondent with family and colleagues, friends and foes, the learned and the simple. Her personal correspondence reveals for the first time the private H.P.B. in all of her sphinx-like complexity rarely visible in her published material. This unparalleled offering contains all known letters H.P.B. wrote between 1860 and the time just before she left for India in 1879. Meticulously edited by John Algeo, former President of the Theosophical Society in America and current Vice President of the international Society, the volume also contains letters to and about Blavatsky, articles, and editorial commentary.
