Can anybody shed further light on "Bloomeries"? I've tried using the 'translate this page' option in Google but this results in somewhat garbled translations.

What do you want to kmow about this book?
According to he reviews it contains more than 40 routines. All of them have been collected from "Le magicien" (Duvivier's magazine) between 1992 and 1999.

On a complitly different hand: on what kind of "clich" are you judging the french?
