1 A.S. Byatt Opowiadania z Matisse'em w tle (Polish)
Proszynski i S-ka 1999 8371804938 / 9788371804939 Hardcover Very Good 
Hardcover with glossy Fauvist front side. NO marks; no writing in book. Text is in Polish. Three stories celebrate the eye even as they reveal its unexpected proximity to the heart. Each of A.S. Byatt's narratives is in some way inspired by a painting of Henri Matisse, but also about the intimate connection between seeing and feeling. Superbly crafted, intensely observed, The Matisse Stories is a reflection of a master's spellbinding authority.

Twarda oprawa z błyszczącą fowistyczną stroną przednią. NO znaków; bez pisania w książce. Tekst jest w języku polskim. Trzy historie cieszą oko, nawet gdy ujawniają nieoczekiwaną bliskość serca. Każdy z A.S. Narracje Byatta są w pewien sposób inspirowane obrazem Henri Matisse'a, ale także intymnym związkiem pomiędzy widzeniem a uczuciem. Znakomicie dopracowane, intensywnie obserwowane Opowieści Matisse'a są odzwierciedleniem mistrza magii.

A continuation of the "Foundation" trilogy.

It is 498 years since the two Foundations came into existence - half-way through the Interregnum planned by Hari Seldon. The Second Foundation has once more successfully concealed its existence so that the laws of psychohistory can operate to usher in a new Empire ruled by the mental sciences. The Second Foundation is thought to be extinct ... except by Councilman Golan Trevize. Trevize fears that the mysterious Second Foundation will bid for power once a new Galactic Empire is established. To prevent Trevize spreading alarm' the Mayor of Terminus exiles him to the abandoned ruins of Trantor. Accompanying Trevize is Janov Pelorat' Professor of Ancient History at the University of Terminus. Pelorat hopes to find on Trantor a clue to the location of the planet that gave birth to the human race. His belief in the existence of Earth is considered as far-fetched as Trevize's belief that the Second Foundation endures. But the truths discovered by both of them on Trantor are far stranger than they could have guessed.
