The leopard by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa( Book )
408 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in 18 languages and held by 4,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The novel is a chronicle of fifty years of the Risorgimento, the Italian Unification's effect on Sicily, dating from Garibaldi's landing on the island in 1860 to the final decline of a once-opulent Sicilian family. The book represents a variation on the historical novel, in that it permits the present to intrude into the past--the omniscient narrator hints at what will happen after the story is finished. The protagonist is Don Fabrizio Corbera, Prince of Salina. He accepts that his nephew, Tancredi, joins the rebels, but sees the aristocracy displaced by the middle class. After the prince's deathbed scene, in which he sums up the small number of joyful hours as against his seventy years of boredom, the view deepens into psychological narrative. However, the story does not end in his death, but the final chapter, set in 1910, shows the decline of the family.--Adapted from kirjasto.sci.fi
Il gattopardo by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa( Book )

›Il Gattopardo‹ (früher als ›Der Leopard‹ nicht ganz korrekt übersetzt, seit 2004 bei Piper als ›Der Gattopardo‹, Tomasi di Lampedusas einziger Roman, 1958 postum erschienen, ist der bedeutendste italienische Roman der Nachkriegszeit, und nicht nur das: ein Welterfolg mit allein in Deutschland über 700.000 verkauften Exemplaren. Dazu beigetragen hat sicher die Verfilmung durch Luchino Visconti (1963) mit Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale und Alain Delon. Im Zentrum der Handlung steht der Niedergang des sizilianischen Fürstenhauses der Salina vor dem Hintergrund einer aufwühlenden Zeit, in der >>alles verändert werden muss, wenn man will, dass alles so bleibt wie es ist<<: der Zeit des Risorgimento, der Einigung Italiens. Ungekürzte und unbearbeitete Textausgabe in der Originalsprache, mit Übersetzungen schwieriger Wörter am Fuß jeder Seite, Nachwort und Literaturhinweisen

Mentre Tancredi, ormai entrato nei ranghi dell'esercito regolare, esulta alla notizia che gli ultimi garibaldini ribelli sono stati fucilati, don Fabrizio riflette sull'imminenza della fine sua e del suo mondo (Mereghetti)
The Professor and the Siren by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the last two years of his life, the Sicilian aristocrat Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, in addition to his internationally celebrated novel, The Leopard, also composed three shorter pieces of fiction that confirm and expand our picture of his brilliant late-blooming talent. In the parable-like "Joy and the Law," a mediocre clerk in receipt of an unexpected supplement to his Christmas bonus (an awkwardly outsize version of the traditional panettone) finds his visions of domestic bliss upset by unwritten rules of honor and obligation. At the heart of the collection stands "The Siren" and its redoubtable hero, Professor La Ciura, the only Hellenist scholar to claim firsthand experience of ancient Greek--from the mouth of the beautiful half-human sea creature he loved in his youth. The volume closes with the last piece of writing completed by the author, "The Blind Kittens," a story originally conceived as the first chapter of a follow-up to The Leopard, a novel that would have traced the post-unification emergence of a new agrarian ruling class in Sicily, coarser than its predecessor but equally blind to the inexorable march of change. This elegant new translation of Lampedusa's complete short fiction, the first by a single hand, updates and corrects previously available English versions"--
