Gruia | 239 comments Please add the cover for ISBN 9782702100455:

Replace the English description with the French one:

"Qu'adviendrait-il si, un jour, la science, le sens du beau et celui du bien se fondaient en un concert harmonieux ? Qu'adviendrait-il si cette synthèse devenait un merveilleux instrument de travail, une nouvelle algèbre, une chimie spirituelle qui permettrait de combiner, par exemple, des lois astronomiques avec une phrase de Bach et un verset de la Bible, pour en déduire de nouvelles notions qui serviraient à leur tour de tremplin à d'autres opérations de l'esprit ?"
Cette extraordinaire mathématique, c'est celle du jeu des perles de verre, que manie parfaitement Joseph Valet, héros fascinant et ludi magister jonglant avec tous les éléments de la culture humaine. Récit d'anticipation, roman d'éducation intellectuelle et religieuse, utopie pessimiste, Le Jeu des perles de verre est une des plus amples et savantes constructions littéraires d'Hermann Hesse.

Thanks for the information!

Monika (MonikaL) | 674 comments Hey again, the link doesn't lead to the book or anything at all. The cover I've found on amazon is different from the link you had provided in the first post, I'll add that instead.


Gruia | 239 comments My apologies for wasting your time, Monika. I cut the final character from the link when I copied it. Here it is, complete:

https://www.amazon.fr/JEU-PERLES-VERR...

That link does not mention the ISBN, so it's hard to say if it belongs to that ISBN or not.

lethe | 10178 comments Maybe the 1971 edition did not have an ISBN yet.

Also, the image on amazon.fr has a watermark URL of an unallowed website (Le-livre.com) which is missing from the image in the imgur link in the first message.

According to abebooks.de the image showing in the topic link is the correct one for this ISBN (f.e. https://www.abebooks.de/servlet/BookD... )


Gruia | 239 comments It took me a while to retrace my steps to where I located the cover on imgur. I used the one on amazon.fr as reference before finding a better version here:
