Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier( Book )
1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
Peter Ibbetson is a romantic novel from the late Victorian era - poignant, melancholic and deeply nostalgic, with a paranormal twist. The plot makes use of the idea of a shared lucid dream in bringing together lovers who are otherwise separated in waking reality, by class and circumstance. Although a powerful love story, it also makes for a fascinating speculative exploration of the nature of human consciousness and the meaning and "true" nature of life. -- review by Michael Graeme (

Die Chronik der Sperlingsgasse by Wilhelm Raabe( Book )

Raabe schreib seinen Roman mit gerade einmal 23 Jahren. Es war sein Erstlingswerk, er selbst ein junger Beobachter der Großstadt Berlin, in der er Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts lebt. Das Buch - zunächst wenig beachtet, wenn auch von kritikern gelobt - ist heute einer der wichtigsten Berlin-Romane. Es ist ein Buch, dass anhand der überschaubaren Berliner Sperlingsgasse die Probleme und Geschehnisse der damaligen Zeit dokumentiert. Kombiniert mit der Wahl einer ungewöhnlichen bildhaften Schreibform, dem ständigen Wechsel zwischen Erzählzeit und erzählter Zeit, sowie verschiedenen Ebenen der Rückble

Classic book jackets : the design legacy of George Salter by Thomas S Hansen( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
"It's said that you can't judge a book by its cover. George Salter, a legendary figure in the field of book design, never subscribed to this belief. For more than forty years, his beautifully drawn and lettered jackets served as elegant windows into the works of such renowned authors as Albert Camus, John Dos Passos, Jack London, and Thomas Mann. Salter had the rare ability to reduce the illustrated jacket to its essential elements. Using typography, calligraphy, and pictorial imagery, he evoked the contents of a wide variety of books."
