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 141 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

The altar of the dead by Henry James( Book )

2 editions published in 1949 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Altar of the Dead is a short story by Henry James, first published in his collection Terminations in 1895. A fable of literally life and death significance, the story explores how the protagonist tries to keep the remembrance of his dead friends, to save them from being forgotten entirely in the rush of everyday events. He meets a woman who shares his ideals, only to find that the past places what seems to be an impassable barrier between them. Although James was not religious in any conventional sense, the story shows a deep spirituality in its treatment of mortality and the transcendent power of unselfish love. Critics have generally rated this tale very high among James' works, with some calling it a "glorious fable," "magnificently written," and "one of his finest." James himself proudly placed the story at the head of volume 17 of the New York Edition (1907-09) of his fiction, before even The Beast in the Jungle. The tale has appeared in a number of later anthologies. Henry James, OM (Order of Merit) (1843-1916) was an American-born writer, regarded as one of the key figures of 19th-century literary realism. He is best known for a number of novels showing Americans encountering Europe and Europeans. His method of writing from a character's point of view allowed him to explore issues related to consciousness and perception, and his style in later works has been compared to impressionist painting. His imaginative use of point of view, interior monologue and unreliable narrators brought a new depth to narrative fiction. Henry James was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1911, 1912, and 1916. [Elib]
