One Hundred Years of Solitude

One Hundred Years of Solitude

Gabriel Garcia Marquez's great masterpiece is the story of seven generations of the Buendia family and of Macondo, the town they have built. Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even its wonders and miracles. A microcosm of Colombian life, its secrets lie hidden, encoded in a book, and only Aureliano Buendia can fathom its mysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny. Blending political reality with magic realism, fantasy with comic invention, "One Hundred Years of Solitude" is one of the most daringly original works of the twentieth century. Формат издания: 13 см х 19,5 см.

Roget's International Thesaurus

Roget's International Thesaurus

This new, enlarged edition of Roget's International Thesaurus is the culmination of nearly a hundred years of evolution in the life cycle of a great reference work. It is the third resetting by the Thomas Y. Crowell Company. It is nearly twice as large as its parent edition, many times the size of the grandparent editions. Of all books of synonyms Roget's International Thesaurus, New Edition, is by far the most complete, the most up-to-date, the only one containing more than a sampling of American slang and colloquialisms, the only one stressing modern quotations as well as ancient and foreign, the only one embodying a system of precise references to paragraphs within sections, the only one set in large type. It is the result of five years of concentrated work of a staff of special editors.
