20 editions published between 1879 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of German unification in 1871, Berlin became a place of increased interest to the other nations of Europe. The journalist Henry Vizetelly (1820-94) made his first journey to the capital of the new empire in 1872. Based on observations from a series of visits, this two-volume work presents a witty and detailed portrait of the city and its inhabitants. In Volume 1, Vizetelly sketches a brief history of the city and its development from the thirteenth century. Chapters explore aspects of Berlin culture and society as well as political and
Four months among the gold-finders in Alta California being the diary of an expedition from San Francisco to the gold districts by Henry Vizetelly( Book )

25 editions published between 1849 and 2011 in English and Dutch and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Vizetelly (1820-1894), a London engraver and author, was a pioneer in the publication of inexpensive illustrated books and magazines. Edwin Bryant (1805-1869) was a Kentucky journalist before coming to California in 1846. He served under Frémont in the Mexican War and was then made alcalde of San Francisco. California. Four months among the gold-finders (1849) by "J. Tyrwhitt Brooks, M.D." is a fictional account of the Gold Rush that purports to have been sent to the author's brother from Monterey in October, 1848. In truth, Henry Vizetelly wrote the book without ever leaving London, supplementing easily available official accounts of the Gold Rush with his own imagination. The secret of his authorship and the book's fictious nature did not become public knowledge for some forty years after its original publication. "Brooks's" account begins with his arrival in San Francisco, continuing with a trip to the goldfields near Sutter's Fort and a try at prospecting at Weber's Creek and other camps. What I saw in California, the second portion of the volume, originally published in 1848, contains Edwin Bryant's more authentic account of life in pre-Gold Rush California, 1846-1847, including the U.S. Army occupation of the territory. Other documents in the appendix are letters concerning the Gold Rush that had appeared in the public press

Paris in peril by Henry Vizetelly( Book )

7 editions published between 1882 and 2011 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Vizetelly (1820-94), whose two-volume Glances Back through Seventy Years is also reissued in this collection, was an English journalist based in Paris during the Franco-Prussian War, which concluded with the downfall of Napoleon III and the end of the second French Empire. First published in 1882, this illustrated two-volume collection of his writings during this turbulent period vividly recounts his experiences of the devastating siege of Paris, setting it within a military, political and economic context. The severe famine during the siege was exacerbated by a lack of forward planning by the French and their inability to build up food supplies before the city was encircled. He describes life during the siege, and recalls the continuing bravery of the French even in the face of inevitable defeat by the Prussian army. Providing an eye-witness account of a significant period in France's history, Vizetelly's works remain of great interest
