Father Brown, an unassuming and shabbily dressed priest, possesses an incredible ability to solve crimes and murders. Here he reveals the secret of his success. This fourth collection contains the magnificent 'The Chief Mourner of Marne'- a fascinating story with unexpected twists - about a duel and a case of mistaken identity.
The fourth collection of Father Brown stories featuring the ingenious amateur detective. Ahead of a new series of the popular BBC adaptation starring Mark Williams, all five of Chesterton's original Father Brown books have been republished with charming and collectible Penguin covers. 'You see, I had murdered them all myself ... I had thought out exactly how a thing like that could be done, and in what style or state of mind a man could really do it. And when I was quite sure that I felt exactly like the murderer myself, of course I knew who he was.' Unassuming super-sleuth Father Brown has such brilliant powers of deduction that he knows more about crime than the criminals themselves. In this fourth volume of stories, the shabby priest unravels the most baffling conundrums involving, among others, a flying fish, a man with two beards and the Worst Crime in the World. G. K. Chesterton was born in 1874. He attended the Slade School of Art, where he appears to have suffered a nervous breakdown, before turning his hand to journalism. A prolific writer throughout his life, his best- known books include The Napoleon of Notting Hill (1904), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1922), The Man Who Was Thursday (1908) and the Father Brown stories. Chesterton converted to Roman Catholicism in 1922 and died in 1938. 'Chesterton knew how to make the most of a detective story' Jorge Luis Borges

Capolavori in Valtiberina
Author: Paola Refice, Laura Teza
Publisher: Edizioni Polistampa
The book, which is the catalog of the exhibition held from June 22 nd to November 3 rd , leads the reader to discover artistic handicraft and local traditions. Aside from focusing on the Table Doria, which depicts a scene of the Battle of Anghiari by Leonardo da Vinci, the text deals with major artists such as Piero della Francesca, the most representative personality of Sansepolcro, who embodies the art and the culture of the city. The focus then shifts to the sixteenth century: in Citt di Castello, at the beginning of the century, Raphael painted his first major altarpieces before leaving for Florence. In 1527, then, after the Sack of Rome, many painters came in the areas nearby Valtiberina. These include Rosso Fiorentino, a true genius of Mannerism, whose stay in those places will be fundamental for native artists. Until the twentieth century, therefore, this region has had a crucial role: not only as a destination for the study of great masters, but also because of the presence of masters of contemporary art such as Alberto Burri, who enhanced the prestige of Valtiberina. Text by Giampiero Maracchi, Enrico Rossi, Catiuscia Marini, Agostino Bureca, Antonio Paolucci, Paola Refice, Sara Borsi, Francesca Mavilla, Laura Teza and Federica Faraone.

Emilio Sereni's classic work is now available in an English language edition. History of the Italian Agricultural Landscape is a synthesis of the agricultural history of Italy in its economic, social, and ecological context, from antiquity to the mid-twentieth century. From his perspective in the Italian tradition of cultural Marxism, Sereni guides the reader through the millennial changes that have affected the agriculture and ecology of the regions of Italy, as well as through the successes and failures of farmers and technicians in antiquity, the middle ages, the Renaissance, and the Industrial Revolution. In this sweeping historical survey, he describes attempts by successive generations to adapt Italy's natural environment for the purposes of agriculture and to respond to its changing ecological problems. History of the Italian Agricultural Landscape first appeared in 1961. At the time of its publication it was a pathbreaking work, parallel in its importance for Italy to Marc Bloc's masterwork of 1931, The Original Characteristics of French Rural History. Sereni invented the concept of the historical "agricultural landscape": an interdisciplinary characterization of rural life involving economic and social history, linguistics, archeology, art history, and ecological studies. Originally published in 1997. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
