The House of Hanover by Alvin Redman( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in German and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On a dark wet day, in 1714, the scion of a small German noble house arrived in England. For the court and people of England, this was no casual visitor. The gross figure which set foot at Greenwich and was bumped along to London was George Louis of Hanover, the new King of England. His arrival on the throne was the result of com- plicated arrangements and scheming and his coronation began a dynasty which would include a dazzling history of accomplishments and an outrageous array of lunatics and incompetents. The reign of the House of Hanover which began in the mist at Greenwich would end in the glaze of Victoria's glory. The hatred for the first Hanoverian king would become the adoration of the Empire for the Queen on whose flag the sun never set"--(Front flyleaf of paper cover). The Hanover monarchs of England were: George I (1660-1727), reigned 1714-1727; George II (1683-1760). reigned 1727-1760; George III (1738-1820), reigned 1760-1820; George IV (1762-1830), reigned 1820-1830; William IV (1765-1837), reigned 1830-1837; Queen Victoria (1819-1901), reigned 1837-1901

Jugend. Der geheime Teilhaber. by Joseph Conrad( )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

''Wir sind doch nicht in einer Abenteuergeschichte für Jungen', widersprach ich. Sein spöttisches Flüstern machte mich betroffen. 'Wahrhaftig nicht!'' Dieser Band vereint zwei der unbestrittenen Meistererzählungen von Joseph Conrad. Beide Male geraten die Protagonisten durch unglaubliche Ereignisse in höchste Gefahr und begegnen dabei sich selbst. Ihre Schiffe sind auf See zum Halten gekommen, doch damit beginnt erst eine ganz andere Reise, die Reise des jugendlichen Herzens zu seinen Abgründen und die Entdeckung seiner eigenen Stärke. Es sind Initiationsgeschichten von farbigem Realismus und symbolischer Wahrheit, die hier in glänzenden Übersetzungen neu präsentiert werden. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), eigentlich Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, war polnischer Abkunft, diente bei der französischen, dann bei der englischen Handelsmarine, wurde Kapitän und befuhr bis 1894 die Meere Südamerikas und des Fernen Ostens. Dort spielen viele seiner Romane und Erzählungen, die gleichermassen durch ihre genaue Beobachtungsgabe und ihre psychologische Meisterschaft bestechen
