Jules Verne : an exploratory biography by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

28 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on previously unpublished letters and papers, Herbert R. Lottman reveals Jules Verne, the pioneer of the science fiction genre and the uncannily accurate forecaster of twentieth-century invention, in an entirely new light. In this groundbreaking biography, Lottman explores the dark, private side of the visionary writer. In his long-lost novel, Paris in the Twentieth Century (published in France in 1994, and in the United States in early 1997), Verne predicted a world filled with both technological achievements and monstrosities: cars, fax machines, synthesizers, computers, mass transit, and the electric chair. With uncharacteristic mistrust, Verne simultaneously marveled at the inventions and despaired at what drove people to create them. It is this elusive, disillusioned aspect of Verne that Herbert Lottman captures here. Tracing Verne's life from his childhood in Nantes to his self-imposed exile outside of Paris as an adult. Lottman sketches a vivid portrait of the man. Lottman brings to light for the first time Verne's secret struggles with his constant wanderlust, his unhappy marriage, his rebellious son, and his overbearing editor-publisher, Pierre-Jules Hetzel
Man Ray's Montparnasse by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Man Ray, the renowned photographer, was there to document it all. His world was filled with artists, writers, and poets, and his camera was his key, allowing him access to cafes, salons, artists' studios, and writers' homes. Within a year of his arrival, he was invited to be Gertrude Stein's official portraitist and to record the image of Marcel Proust on his deathbed. He photographed Pablo Picasso and Peggy Guggenheim, made films alongside the Dadaists, and played chess with Marcel Duchamp. Illustrated with Man Ray's own photographs, this book chronicles a legendary time and place."--Jacket

ManRay : photography and its double by Man Ray( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Man Ray (1890-1976), was one of the co-founders of New York Dada. When he arrived in Paris in the 1920s he was already friends with Duchamp and many Parisian Surrealists, who welcomed him with great enthusiasm. He is unquestionably recognized as the most original photographer of our century. With his photographs, Rayographs, solarizations, and various experimentation with Surrealist doctrines in the darkroom, his photographic contribution to art and especially surrealism is matchless. Thanks to his famous portraits of contemporaries - artists, writers and celebrities - he also became the most notable chronicler of the inter-national Avant-garde movement of the 1920s and 1930s. This remarkable monograph published to coincide with the historic exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, is entirely dedicated to Man Ray's photographic oeuvre. The Centre Pompidou is the recipient of the Man Ray archives - some 13,000 negatives and 5,000 prints - which reveal for the very first time never before published photographs (a great amount consisting of erotic compositions). One-third of these photographs have never been seen. Not only the finished photos, but also the process - crops, background manipulation and other methods. The book with its new images presents for the very first time a true picture of the artist, and a vital addition to the many publications about Man Ray that appeared throughout this century, many of which are long out of print. This monograph is a must for Man Ray experts, for those interested in photography, and a wonderful introduction to students and others not yet sufficiently familiar with Man Ray's work
The fall of Paris : June 1940 by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's a story rich in detail and dramatic incidents. Because of very poor communications with the front lines, few people even in the government knew what was happening or where the Germans were. Smoke rose from ministry courtyards as secret papers and documents were burned; heavily laden French and Belgian refugees from the north streamed through Paris, and many Parisians who owned cars stocked up on gasoline and loaded their vehicles with household goods to join them on a flight to the south; theaters and restaurants stayed open, their owners not knowing what to expect; rumors abounded of saboteurs and German parachutists, but none ever materialized. As the Germans got closer, the secrets of the Enigma code machines and formulas essential for splitting the atom were slipped out of the city and taken to England. French policemen were issued rifles, and the lowly French army sergeant charged with blowing up the Eiffel Tower changed his mind and left it standing

The French Rothschilds : the great banking dynasty through two turbulent centuries by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There have been a number of books on the Rothschilds, but never one that focused so closely on the French branch of the family. Yet the French Rothschilds, with their eventful careers in both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and the anti-Semitism they faced; their contribution to the settlement of Palestine; the assaults they endured from first the Petain regime and later the Mitterrand Socialists; and their famous racehorses and prestigious wines, are in many respects the most fascinating branch of this astonishing family
The Michelin men : driving an empire by Herbert R Lottman( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of how two brothers - Edouard and Andre Michelin - turned a sleepy, family tyre firm in the heart of rural France into one of the most innovative and successful industrial empires in the world. Edouard, a landscape painter at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, displayed an engineering genius for tyre-making and product innovation, whilst Andre, trained as an engineer, displayed a creative genius for advertising and marketing. Together they kick-started the world motor industry and created a tourist industry around the motor car and their now legendary "Michelin Guides". The Michelin history, as described here by Herbert Lottman, reveals insights into the development of this business."--Jacket
