Storia della mia fuga dai Piombi by Giacomo Casanova( Book )
6 editions published between 1900 and 1902 in German and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Giacomo Casanova (1725-1798), bis heute der Inbegriff des Frauenhelden, beschreibt ein Kapitel seines Lebens, das ihn fernab von Erotik und Verführung zeigt: Gefangen in den Bleikammern des Dogenpalasts von Venedig, ist er dazu gezwungen, das Beste aus seiner Haft zu machen und sich den kleinen Dingen des Lebens zu widmen. So wird bereits das Basteln einer Öllampe hinter dem Rücken der Gefängniswärter zu einem aufregenden Abenteuer. Welches Verbrechen Casanova begangen haben soll, bleibt ungewiss, und schon bald beginnt er, immer ausgefeiltere Fluchtpläne zu schmieden. Er versteht es, die Stärken und Schwächen seiner Mithäftlinge herauszufinden und jedem von ihnen eine passende Rolle bei seinem bühnenreifen Ausbruch zuzuweisen.Im Jahre 1787 noch vor den umfangreichen Memoiren verfasst, stellt die vorliegende Erzählung mit ihren geistreichen und amüsanten Ausführungen wohl eine der spannendsten Episoden aus Casanovas Leben dar. Giacomo Casanova, geboren 1725 in Venedig, gestorben 1798 auf Schloss Duchcov in Böhmen, war Schriftsteller, Abenteurer und Libertin. 1755 wurde er im Auftrag der venezianischen Staatsinquisition verhaftet und verbrachte 15 Monate in den Bleikammern auf dem Dachboden des Dogenpalasts, ehe ihm die Flucht gelang

The spy by James Fenimore Cooper( Book )
7 editions published between 1877 and 1913 in German and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Inspired by accusations of venality leveled at the men who captured Major Andre (Benedict Arnold's co-conspirator, executed for espionage in 1780), Cooper's novel centers on Harry Birch, a common man wrongly suspected by well-born Patriots of being a spy for the British. Even George Washington, who supports Birch, misreads the man, and when Washington offers him payment for information vital to the Patriot's cause, Birch scorns the money and asserts that his action were motivated not by financial reward, but by his devotion to the fight for independence. A historical adventure tale reminiscent of Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, The Spy is also a parable of the American experience, a reminder that the nation's survival, like its Revolution, depends on judging people by their actions, not their class or reputations

Kenilworth by Walter Scott( Book )
9 editions published between 1870 and 1920 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tragic story of the secret marriage of Amy Robsart to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, favourite and potential consort of the Queen, is imbued with the drama of Tudor England, its exuberance of spirit, vigor of language, violence and treachery, ostentation and gaiety, shifts and stratagems, and above all, its pervading sense of transience. Steeped in and engrossed by historic England, Scott relished the opportunity to create a pageant of Elizabethan life. From the swashbuckling Lambourne to the Machiavellian Varney, from the vacillating Leicester to Amy and the Queen herself, Scott grasps something of the passions of Marlowe, the histrionics of Kyd and the cynicism of Marston. Kenilworth comes as close to the theatrical and the melodramatic as Rob Roy or The Bride of Lammermoor, and Scott's sheer zest in writing is there for any reader to enjoy
The history of Manon Lescaut and the Chevalier Des Grieux by Prévost( Book )
3 editions published between 1964 and 1988 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in France and Louisiana in the early 18th century, the story follows the hero, the Chevalier des Grieux, and his lover, Manon Lescaut. Des Grieux comes from a noble and landed family, but forfeits his hereditary wealth and incurs the disappointment of his father by running away with Manon. In Paris, the young lovers enjoy a blissful cohabitation, while Des Grieux struggles to satisfy Manon's taste for luxury. He scrounges together money by borrowing from his unwaveringly loyal friend Tiberge and from cheating gamblers. On several occasions, Des Grieux's wealth evaporates (by theft, in a house fire, etc.), prompting Manon to leave him for a richer man because she cannot stand the thought of living in penury. The two lovers finally settle down in New Orleans, where the virtual absence of class differences allows them for a while to live in idyllic peace. But when Des Grieux reveals their unmarried state to the Governor and asks to be wed with Manon, the Governor's nephew sets his sights on winning Manon's hand. In despair, Des Grieux challenges the Governor's nephew to a duel and knocks him unconscious. Thinking he had killed the man and fearing retribution, the couple flee New Orleans and venture into the wilderness of Louisiana, hoping to reach a distant English settlement. Manon dies of exposure and exhaustion the following morning; after burying her, Des Grieux returns to France to become a cleric
