This edition contains the English translation and the original text in French. "Five Weeks in a Balloon, or, Journeys and Discoveries in Africa by Three Englishmen" (French: "Cinq semaines en ballon") is an adventure novel by Jules Verne. It is the first Verne novel in which he perfected the "ingredients" of his later work, skillfully mixing a plot full of adventure and twists that hold the reader's interest with passages of technical, geographic, and historic description. The book gives readers a glimpse of the exploration of Africa, which was still not completely known to Europeans of the time, with explorers traveling all over the continent in search of its secrets. Public interest in fanciful tales of African exploration was at its height, and the book was an instant hit; it made Verne financially independent and got him a contract with Jules Hetzel's publishing house, which put out several dozen more works of his for over forty years afterward. "Cinq semaines en ballon" est un roman de Jules Verne, paru en 1863.

The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare is a novel by G. K. Chesterton, first published in 1908. The book is sometimes referred to as a metaphysical thriller.In Edwardian era London, Gabriel Syme is recruited at Scotland Yard to a secret anti-anarchist police corps. Lucian Gregory, an anarchistic poet, lives in the suburb of Saffron Park. Syme meets him at a party and they debate the meaning of poetry. Gregory argues that revolt is the basis of poetry. Syme demurs, insisting the essence of poetry is not revolution but law. Alors que la lumière rougeoyante du crépuscule s'étend sur les faubourgs de l'est londonien, deux poètes aux conceptions opposées se disputent dans le jardin de Saffron Park. Le premier, Lucien Gregory, défend une poésie du mouvement et de l'imprévu en affirmant les liens entre art et anarchie : « L’artiste nie tous les gouvernements, abolit toutes les conventions. Le désordre, voilà l’atmosphère nécessaire du poète » ; le deuxième, Gabriel Syme, défend la beauté des choses qui se déroulent sans heurt jusqu'à leur but : « Encore une fois, qu’y a-t-il de poétique dans la révolte ? Autant dire que le mal de mer est poétique !

In 1801, Lockwood, a wealthy young man from the South of England who is seeking peace and recuperation, rents Thrushcross Grange in Yorkshire. He visits his landlord, Heathcliff, who lives in a remote moorland farmhouse, Wuthering Heights. There Lockwood finds an odd assemblage: Heathcliff who seems to be a gentleman, but his manners are uncouth; the reserved mistress of the house who is in her mid-teens; and a young man who seems to be a member of the family, yet dresses and speaks as if he is a servant. Snowed in, Lockwood is grudgingly allowed to stay and is shown to a bedchamber where he notices books and graffiti left by a former inhabitant named Catherine. He falls asleep and has a nightmare in which he sees the ghostly Catherine trying to enter through the window. He cries out in fear, rousing Heathcliff, who rushes into the room. Lockwood is convinced that what he saw was real. Heathcliff, believing Lockwood to be right, examines the window and opens it, hoping to allow Catherine's spirit to enter. When nothing happens, Heathcliff shows Lockwood to his own bedroom and returns to keep watch at the window. Mr Earnshaw, père de famille, a deux enfants: un fils, Hindley, et une fille, Catherine. Parti en voyage à Liverpool pendant plusieurs semaines, le vieil Earnshaw revient avec sous son manteau un petit bohémien errant d'environ 6 ans, Heathcliff. Hindley et lui entrent rapidement en conflit et, à la mort du père, Hindley devient le maître de maison. Heathcliff est alors traité plus durement que jamais. La petite Catherine et lui se découvrent de tendres sentiments qui n'auront de cesse de s'approfondir au fil de leur adolescence. Rêvant tous deux d'un avenir plus glorieux que leurs vies respectives, les deux enfants s’échappent fréquemment dans la lande pour aspirer à de jours meilleurs.

According to Mary, in December 1878, her father had telegraphed her upon his safe return from India and requested her to meet him at the Langham Hotel in London. When Mary arrived at the hotel, she was told her father had gone out the previous night and not returned. Despite all efforts, no trace has ever been found of him. Mary contacted her father's only friend who was in the same regiment and had since retired to England, one Major John Sholto, but he denied knowing her father had returned. En 1888, une jeune cliente blonde, Mary Morstan, débarque chez Holmes, et lui demande de l'aide. Elle lui explique qu'elle est gouvernante, et que c'est sa patronne qui lui a conseillé de venir ici. Watson tombe sous le charme de la jeune femme qui expose son problème : son père, navigateur dans les Indes, est décédé environ dix ans auparavant (disparu le 3 décembre 1878). Or, elle reçoit, depuis six ans, et à cycle régulier, des perles de grande valeur. Et ce même jour lui est parvenu une enveloppe où un anonyme lui demande de venir à un rendez-vous, accompagnée si elle le souhaite, mais pas d'un policier.
