Most widely held works by Karl Lerbs
Talleyrand by Duff Cooper( Book )

30 editions published between 1933 and 1979 in German and Undetermined and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unique in his own age and a phenomenon in any, Charles-Maurice, Prince de Talleyrand, was a diplomat and statesman of outstanding ability and extraordinary contradictions. At once bishop and libertine, iconoclast and traditionalist, he made himself indispensable and held high office in five successive reigns." "From the Revolutionary regime, through exile in America, to new eminence under Napoleon, Talleyrand plotted his way to the restoration of the Bourbons and his own crowning achievement - winning an effective voice for France in the settlement of Europe at the Congress of Vienna - and served a further twenty years before he retired, at eighty, under the constitutional monarchy of Louis Philippe. Duff Coopers classic biography charts his fascinating, checkered career with all the vigor, elegance, and intellect of its remarkable subject."--BOOK JACKET

Bartleby ; and, Benito Cereno by Herman Melville( Book )

8 editions published between 1945 and 1951 in German and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bartleby the Scrivener (1853), by Herman Melville, tells the story of a quiet, hardworking legal copyist who works in an office in the Wall Street area of New York City. One day Bartleby declines the assignment his employer gives him with the inscrutable "I would prefer not." The utterance of this remark sets off a confounding set of actions and behavior, making the unsettling character of Bartleby one of Melville's most enigmatic and unforgettable creations
Orlando; a biography by Virginia Woolf( Book )

8 editions published between 1928 and 1983 in German and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Virginia Woolf's exuberant 'biography' tells the story of the cross-dressing, sex-changing Orlando who begins life as a young noble in the sixteenth century and moves through numerous historical and geographical worlds to finish as a modern woman writer in the 1920s. The book is in part a happy tribute to the 'life' that her love for Vita Sackville-West had breathed into Virginia Woolf's own day-to-day existence; it is also Woolf's light-hearted and light-handed teasing out of the assumptions that lie behind the normal conventions for writing about a fictional or historical life. In this novel, Virginia Woolf plays loose and fast: Orlando uncovers a literary and sexual revolution overnight."--Jacket
