French literature Stock

French literature stockThe Library bought the French Literature stock in 1993. It includes 346 works (the total of volumes is 347) of French poets and narrators of the first half of the Ttwentieth century. The most important writers are André Maurois; Louis Farigoule (also known as Jules Romains), inventor of the doctrine of Unanimism, a doctrine based on the idea that any aggregation of individuals possesses a sort of collective soul; last but not least Georges Duhamel, doctor and writer whose complete work is included in the stock. The majority of volumes in the collection presents a manuscript dedication by the author himself.

The stock is catalogued with a special shelf mark (Rot. 13 A).
