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

32 editions published between 1933 and 1979 in German and Undetermined and held by 150 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."--Jacket

Ein älterer Rechtsanwalt berichtet als Icherzähler von einem seiner Schreiber namens Bartleby, den er eines Tages in sein von Hochhäusern umstelltes lichtloses Büro in der Wall Street aufnimmt. Bartleby beginnt seine Tätigkeit mit stillem Fleiß und einsiedlerischer Ausdauer. Er kopiert unermüdlich Verträge, lehnt aber zur Überraschung seines Dienstherrn schon bald jede andere Tätigkeit mit den Worten ab: "Ich möchte lieber nicht", "I would prefer not to". Bald weigert er sich sogar, Verträge zu kopieren, wohnt aber inzwischen in dem Büro - höflich, freudlos, ohne Freunde und fast ohne zu essen. Der Rechtsanwalt kann oder will ihn nicht gewaltsam aus dem Büro entfernen lassen und auch eine großzügige Abfindung interessiert Bartleby nicht. Wegen eines unerklärlichen Einverständnisses mit Bartleby sieht sich der Rechtsanwalt am Ende gezwungen, selbst aus dem Büro auszuziehen, statt Bartleby vor die Tür zu setzen. Seine Nachmieter - weniger verständnisvoll - lassen Bartleby bald durch die Polizei abführen und in das Gefängnis The Tombs (die Gräber) bringen. Dort verweigert Bartleby sowohl alle Kommunikation und auch alle Nahrung. Der Rechtsanwalt versucht, sich um seinen "Freund" zu kümmern, aber nach wenigen Tagen stirbt Bartleby an seiner Lebensverweigerung
