Peter Schlemiel : the man who sold his shadow by Adelbert von Chamisso( Book )

156 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Asked which book by another author he would most like to claim as his own work, Italo Calvino once said without hesitation, Adelbert von Chamisso's Peter Schlemiel. First published in 1814, this brilliant novel is not only a precursor of Poe, Kafka, and the magic realists - it is a timeless fable with a remarkably contemporary flavor. When a mysterious man in a gray coat asks Peter Schlemiel if he would sell him his shadow, that "lovely, lovely shadow" of his, he naturally thinks the man must be mad. But then the stranger makes him an offer he can't refuse. In return for his shadow, Schlemiel receives a neverending source of riches, and he is convinced he is on the road to happiness. Yet he finds that without a shadow he is rejected by society and unable to find the fulfillment of love. After a series of fantastic adventures, Peter Schlemiel realizes that he must discover a new way to give his life meaning if he is to go on in the world
Peter Schlemihl by Adelbert von Chamisso( Book )

128 editions published between 1823 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first published work of John Gincano, a virtually unknown master of foreboding expressionistic woodcuts. Executed at the advent of the Great Depression (the zenith of the Expressionist era), these grim woodcuts compare with the best work of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Vasily Kandinsky, and Emile Nolde. As Willy Pogany states in his preface, "Gincano's delightful woodcuts not only illustrate Schlemihl's peregrinations, but describe a life partly his own. They illuminate this charming satirical romance and are fully imbued with the whimsical spirit of the book, rendered as they are with masterful simplicity and telling originality. The idea of illustrating 'Peter Schlemihl' with woodcuts is a very fortunate one, as it not only suggests the period when Chamisso wrote this immortal fantasy, but somehow by its very nature of strong contrasts in Black and White constantly brings to mind the lost 'shadow'" (p. 4). -- vendor description
