Hier fiel Mutter vom Esel : reisen nach Italien mit den Eltern Wilhelm Hensel und Fanny, geb. Mendelssohn Bartholdy : das Tagebuch von 1839/40 und die Zeichnungen von 1845 by S Hensel( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der neunjährige Sebastian, einziges Kind von Wilhelm Hensel und Fanny, geb. Mendelssohn Bartholdy, begleitete seine Eltern auf ihrer lange erträumten und geplanten Reise 1839/40 nach Italien. Fanny hielt ihren Sohn an, während der gesamten mehr als ein Jahr dauernden Reise, die die Familie über Leipzig, München, Mailand, Bologna, Venedig, Florenz und Rom bis nach Neapel führte und zurück per Schiff nach Genua, wieder über Mailand, die Schweiz, den Rhein abwärts, über Frankfurt, Fulda, Gotha und wieder über Leipzig, ein Tagebuch zu schreiben. Da Sebastian wegen seines Gesundheitszustandes gelegentlich keine Eintragungen vornehmen konnte, übernahm Fanny dies manchmal selbst. Sebastians Tagebuch ergänzen die bereits veröffentlichten Briefe und Tagebuchnotizen von Fanny, viele Einzelheiten der Reise, die Fanny nicht erwähnt, interessieren ihren kleinen Sohn und etliches unternimmt er, zumeist in Rom, auch selbständig. Nach der Rückkehr nach Berlin fertigte Sebastian unter Aufsicht der Mutter eine Reinschrift für die Großmutter Lea Mendelssohn Bartholdy an, die allerdings mit dem Verlassen Roms endet. Beide Versionen, die Urschrift und die Reinschrift werden parallel veröffentlicht, ihr Vergleich erlaubt einen ungeahnten Einblick in die Erziehung des Knaben. Vieles wurde von Fanny sprachlich geglättet, manche Streichung macht deutlich, was sie nicht für angemessen hielt, es der Großmutter schriftlich mitzuteilen. 1845 fand eine zweite Reise der Hensels nach Italien statt, um das erkrankte Ehepaar Dirichlet, Fannys Schwester Rebecka und deren Mann auf der Rückreise nach Berlin zu begleiten. Auf dieser Reise fertigte der inzwischen 15jährige Sebastian kein Tagebuch, aber zahlreiche Zeichnungen an, die dem Tagebuch beigefügt sind. Zeitgenössische Karten, denen die damaligen Reisewege und -stationen zu entnehmen sind, ergänzen das Buch

The Mendelssohn Family (1729-1847), Volume 1 : From Letters and Journals by S Hensel( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sebastian Hensel (1830-98), nephew of the composer, virtuoso pianist and conductor Felix Mendelssohn (1809-47), originally intended this work to be 'not only of the family but for the family', drawing on their letters and diaries. Persuaded by friends to publish his narrative in 1879, Hensel in particular provides a first-hand insight into the lives of his uncle, lionized by the music-loving public of his day, and Felix's beloved sister Fanny (1805-47), herself a talented composer and pianist. Translated from the German revised second edition by Felix's close friend, diplomat Carl Klingemann (1798-1862), this 1881 two-volume collection made available for the first time in English a great deal of valuable source material. Covering the period 1729-1835, Volume 1 charts the family's history from the birth of philosopher Moses Mendelssohn to the death of his son, banker Abraham Mendelssohn Bartholdy, who was the father of Felix

A history of Rome under the emperors by Theodor Mommsen( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theodor Mommsen's History of Rome, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1902, was never completed. The manuscript of the fourth volume, the History of Rome under the Emperors, was burnt in a fire in Mommsen's house in 1880, and subsequently never published. Even though Mommsen lectured on the topic extensively from 1863 to 1886, it was believed that the lost volume could never be reconstructed.
