The illustrated longitude by Dava Sobel( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in German and held by 27 libraries worldwide
This fully illustrated edition of the international best-seller Longitude recounts in words and images the epic quest to solve the greatest scientific problem of the eighteenth and three prior centuries: determining how a captain could pinpoint his ship's location at sea. All too often, voyages ended in disaster when crew and cargo were either lost at sea or destroyed upon the rocks of an unexpected landfall. Thousands of lives and the fortunes of nations hung on a resolution. Governments established prizes for anyone whose method or device proved successful. The scientific establishment, certain that a celestial answer would be found, invested untold effort in this pursuit. By contrast, John Harrison built the unimaginable: a clock that told perfect time at sea, known today as the chronometer. Harrison's trials and tribulations during his forty-year quest to win the prize are the culmination of this remarkable story.--From publisher description
Frühstück mit Lucian Freud by Geordie Greig( Book )
3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 26 libraries worldwide
Um das Leben des Malers Lucian Freud ranken sich viele Gerüchte - nicht zuletzt, weil er Privates rigoros vor der Öffentlichkeit abschirmte. Geordie Greig gehörte zu Freuds engsten Vertrauten, mit ihm teilte er Geschichten aus seinem Leben, das voller Arbeitswut, grausamer Rücksichtslosigkeit und einer fatalen Hang zum Glücksspiel war. Greig enthüllt in seiner Biographie eine faszinierende Persönlichkeit, für die jeder aus der High Society liebend gern Modell sitzen wollte, obwohl es monatelange Tortur bedeutete. Illustriert mit vielen unbekannten Fotos und Bildern, ist diese Biographie eines der bedeutendsten Maler des 20. Jahrhunderts zugleich ein lebendiges Stück Kunstgeschichte

Postwar : a history of Europe since 1945 by Tony Judt( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in German and held by 12 libraries worldwide
The first truly European history of contemporary Europe, from Lisbon to Leningrad, based on research in six languages, covering 34 countries across 60 years, using a great deal of material from newly available sources. The book integrates international relations, domestic politics, ideas, social change, economic development, and culture--high and low--into a single grand narrative. Every country has its chance to play the lead, and although the big themes are handled--including the cold war, the love/hate relationship with America, cultural and economic malaise and rebirth, and the myth and reality of unification--none of them is allowed to overshadow the rich pageant that is the whole.--From publisher description
