About this book/synopsis: For hundreds of years, kings and queens, emperors and aristocrates of every description have adorned themselves with dazzling diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. However, in recent decades, movie stars, opera singers, and entrepreneurs have joined the ranks of those with the means and desire to commission the finest bracelets, necklaces, brooches, rings and earrings. This book is the first public viewing of fabulous jewelry owned by the rich and famous - along with a peek into the glamorous lives behind these glittering collections.

Most of the information established about these collections of the last century has been revealed from auctions held after the death of the collectors. The Duchess of Windsor's collection could not be appreciated to its full extent until it came to light in the famous sale of 1987.

The authors of this beautiful and fascinating book are both international jewelry experts who have been involved in countless auctions of such fine jewelry from private estates and they have illustrated their book with lush colour photographs of superb jewelry in close-up and archival shots of the bejeweled collectors and it makes essential reading for anyone with an interest in society, collecting, jewelry and celebrity lifestyles

So who does this book look at?
Well, the book is split into three sections:

1. Screen Actresses and A Diva includes: Merle Oberon, Mary Pickford, Paulette Goddard, Ava Gardner, Joan Crawford and Renata Tebaldi

2, Aristocracy includes Cornelia, Countess of Craven; Gladys, Duchess of Marlborough, King Umberto II of Italy; The Princess Royal, Countess of Harewood; The Princess Von Thurn und Taxis; The Duchess of Windsor

3. Society includes Countess Mona Bismarck; Lydia, Lady Deterding; Daisy Fellowes, Ganna Walska, Barbara Hutton; and Helen Rubinstein

About this book: Broaching the notion of the ‘frame’ from a variety of analytic perspectives,  and employing a range of approaches, this collection of articles engages with contemporary debates on text and image relations, literary reception and translation, narratology and cinematographic technique. The various contributions to this collection provide new readings in their respective fields, and share a common concern with exploring the productive and problematic notion of the ‘frame’ and of ‘framing’ in a wide variety of cultural media in French studies. This interdisciplinary analysis of literary and theoretical texts, visual art and film allows for fruitful connections  to be made at the level of analysis of themes and of methodology. It thus provides material that is of interest both to specialists in these fields, and also to those seeking a more general introduction to each area. This collection of articles is selected from the proceedings of the ‘Framed! In French Studies’ workshop, held at the Institut Francais in London in February 2006 under the auspices of the 2001 Group (an inter-university postgraduate community in French Studies) funded in 2004-6 by the AHRC.

  • The Insurgents [top]
    Written by Vercors
    Published in 1957 in Great Britain by Frederick Muller Ltd, London, 1957. 1st UK Edition, 280pp

Storyline:[from front flap]: What started Egmont on his experiment was an accident; what he made of it was an act of rebellion. When his house was burned and he was seriously injured, he resolved to get well unaided. More daring still, he resolved to repudiate the terms of human existence, to revolt against disease, old age, and death. Egmont was not alone in believing that human life is a tragedy that cries out for change. His plan was the most radical: to reverse the processes of his own body, to grow younger. But each of his friends, in his own way, was striving toward the same goal-Mirambeau, the research scientist; Closter Cloots, the satiric writer; Pelion, the labour organizer. To Olga, whose reluctant love Egmont had won, his experiment was fascinating and horrific, a test of her sanity and devotion.

She realised she had become an accomplice in a Promethean endeavour; she was the link between two worlds. In these audacious and even shocking terms Vercors explores the inexhaustible riddle:What is Man, what may he become, and at what moment in his victory does he fall victim to the forces he has unleashed? Told with incomparable skill, this story of a headlong attack upon the unknown embodies the essence of human aspiration.

About the author: Vercors is both the nom de plume and the name adopted by Jean Bruller when he was a member of the French resistance during WWII. Graduated as an electrical engineer, he turned to art as a profession and prior to the war had made a reputation as an artist and a designer. In 1941, under the stress of the German occupation, he began to write, all the while working with the French branch of the British Intelligence Service. In order to publish what he had written, he founded a clandestine publishing house, Aux Editions de Minuit (The Midnight Press), which soon flourished by publishing some of the major names in French literature. The first publication of the press was Vercors' The Silence of the Sea-a resounding success. A copy was smuggled out to England and then translated. Both in England and the United States it was a best-seller. By the end of the war, Vercors' reputation as an original and important writer was established internationally. Vercors lived in the country at Farenoutiers (Seine-et-Marne) with his family. Apart from occasional journeys abroad-he went to the Far East recently-he continues to paint and sketch and, of course, to write

  • Made in Huddersfield: the post-industrial Pennine landscape [top]
    Written by Jack Ramsay; Photographs by Jack Ramsay
    First published in 1989 in Great Britain by North of Watford Publishing in a limited edition run of 2000 hardback copies with dustjacket, 192pp, ISBN 1871939003 .
    Original UK retail price: £14.95 net
    Includes 62 photographs by the author
    Front cover: George Street, Milnsbridge in the Colne Valley (taken by author)

Contents: 'Made in Huddersfield' is a powerful autobiographical book in which we are shown how one man's life and perceptions have been formed; how his own environment and the changes it has undergone have affected his view of the world. But it is much more. It proves to be a highly realistic and individual view of a unique part of the North of England today, at a crucial point in both it and the nation's history. It is a book that vividly captures the spirit of Pennine milltowns as the are now, but one that always considers the visual and spiritual enigma of what remains from how they were. Thus, at a time of so much looking back, the author comes to terms with his own nostalgia, but uses it as a springboard to show us the essence of this part of the North as it really is - the post-industrial North of textile mills being refurbished and restored; the North of rolling Pennine uplands surrounded by ring roads and motorways; the North of old cobbled backstreets, derelict mill sites, fashionable commuter villages, and the emerging underclass of the inner cities. Above all, the author shows us this part of the North that was built on a solid foundation of industrial history, but a North which has now changed forever. As such, this book is not only an important social comment on the present through its broader juxtaposing of the changing urban environment against aspects of contemporary English life - it challenges the future. For it is a remarkable book that evokes from us a range of emotions and reactions, and ultimately compels all of us to consider our own motives as we increasingly let external forces such as technology, bureaucracy, and greed to infect both us, and our very precious environment.

  • Postern of Fate [top]
    Written by Agatha Christie
    Published in 1975 in Great Britain by the Companion Book Club in leatherette hardback, 254pp

Postern of Fate is the fifth book in Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence books:
1922. Secret Adversary
1929. Partners in Crime
1941. N or M?
1968. By the Pricking of My Thumbs
1973. Postern of Fate.

Storyline:
Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, now retired, move into a house in a Devonshire village. In an old book left in the attic, Tuppence finds cryptic clues relating to a murder which took place in the village during the First World War. The girl who died had apparently been mixed up in a scandal concerning the passing on of naval secrets. But was she innocent or guilty? Tommy and Tuppence are intrigued, and (aided by their dog, Hannibal) decide to investigate. But few of those who were in the village at the time are still alive, and their memories are confused or failing; it was such a long time ago. For the other villagers, it is all hearsay-often contradictory hearsay at that. Yet from all the seemingly disconnected items of information, a pattern slowly begins to emerge...Tommy and Tuppence feel they are on surer ground after Tommy visits a certain Mr Robinson in London. Then Colonel Pikeaway of MI5 takes a hand. Although the murder took place such a long time ago, there are signs that someone is anxious it should not be revived. Suddenly, Tommy and Tuppence are in danger, but no one can guess from what source or why their inquiries into the past should be so bitterly resented... .

  • The Strangled Impulse [top]
    Written by William King
    First published in 1997 in the Republic of Ireland by Falcon Publications, County Kildare, Ireland, 176 pages. ISBN 0952980002

Storyline: As he circled the island of foliage, the lights swept a car, revealing two heads joined in the back seat. He stopped, facing towards Dun Laoghaire. Would he always remain an outsider looking in on others' lives? How long could he ward off the daily realities that pressed for an answer? In a few years' time he would receive another letter: 'Thank you for your work in Melrose.'
...and was the game of golf anything more than four priests herding together against the sour truth of their isolated condition? Now and again, the stretch of springs, or the excited laughter of the woman in the other car invaded his reflection.
Ever since his appointment fo a run-down parish in Dublin, Brian O'Neill wakes long before dawn with a litany of questions. He had become a priest to save souls, now his vocation threatens to destroy him
