About this Item: München, 1983, Orbis Verlag, 1983. Pappband. 27 cm 240 seiten. Illustrierter Pappeinband. gebrauchsspuren, einband etwas an den kanten bestoßen,etwas papiergebräunte seiten und schnitt, ".Acht der spannendsten Abenteuergeschichten berühmter europäischer und amerikanischer Verfasser sind hier vereinigt. Sie spielen unter Indianern und Siedlern in Amerika, auf einsamen Inseln, unter Piraten und Walfängern oder in einem Ballon, der erstmals Afrika überfliegt. Fast alle ihre Helden sind uns heute von Film und Fernsehen bekannt. Ursprünglich wurden diese Erzählungen für Erwachsene geschrieben, aber inzwischen haben sie schon Millionen von jungen Lesern in vielen Ländern begeistert. Niemals vorher wurden sie in einen einzigen Band zusammengetragen.Allerdings erforderte dies eine neue Art der Darstellung, denn in der Originalfassung ist jedes der hier aufgenommenen Werke allein schon ein paar hundert Seiten stark. Es schien uns sinnvoll, große Abschnitte dieser Erzählungen übersichtlich gekürzt zusammenzufassen (man erkennt sie an der kursiven, also schrägliegenden Schrift), die Handlungshöhepunkte dagegen in recht enger Anlehnung an die Originalausgaben wiederzugeben (gerade Schrift); auch bei diesen ließen sich freilich gelegentliche Kürzungen nicht ganz vermeiden. Zum Textvergleich wurden meist nicht nur verschiedene deutsche Ausgaben herangezogen, sondern jeweils auch die fremdsprachige Originalfassung.Ebenso wie beim Text griffen wir auch bei den zum Teil farbigen Abbildungen auf ältere Ausgaben zurück. Dies hatte den Vorteil, daß wir unter einer großen Zahl von Illustrationen, die im Laufe der Zeit zu diesen Geschichten entstanden, die stimmungsvollsten auswählen konnten. Die Bilder zum "Robinson" etwa stammen von dem Engländer Nicholson, dem Franzosen Grandville, dem Schweizer F.A.L. Dumoulin und dem Deutschen Ludwig Richter; jene zu "Moby Dick" - von dem erst sehr spät illustrierte Ausgaben erschienen - von amerikanischen Künstlern, welche in den Jahren 1930/31 dieses Werk ihres Landsmanns bebilderten: Raymond Bishop, A.O. Fischer, Rockwell Kent und Howard Simon Ein anderer Amerikaner, H.M. Brock, schuf die meisten Illustrationen zum "Letzten Mohikaner", der Deutsche H. Schrödter die zum "Tom Sawyer", die Franzosen Georges Roux und Riou jene zur "Schatzinsel" bzw. zu "Fünf Wochen im Ballon". Die Abbildungen zu "Graf von Monte Christo" schließlich wurden für die Erstausgabe von Plantikow gefertigt; einige weitere Künstler vorwiegend der Jahrhundertwende kommen hinzu.Für die Farbtafeln ergab sich eine gewisse Schwierigkeit dadurch, daß ja früher farbige Bebilderung eine Ausnahme war. Daher haben wir die Farbtafeln aus Prachtausgaben der Jahrhundertwende durch weiteres Material ergänzt und außerdem für "Schatzinsel und Tom Sawyer« Farbbilder der Amerikanerin Kinuko Cralt verwendet, die im Stil älteren Werken angepaßt sind Und nun wünschen viel Freude mit diesem großen Sammelband«Daniel Defoe, Die Abenteuer des Robinson Crusoe . . .

About this Item: Valdemar, 2011. Condition: New. Herman Melville (1819-1891), nacido en el seno de una familia puritana de Nueva York, tuvo una juventud aventurera: a los veintidós años se embarcó en el ballenero Acushnet , desertó dieciocho meses después, y tuvo que vivir una temporada entre caníbales en las Islas Marquesas. A pesar de que nunca recibió una educación universitaria –debido a su necesidad de ganarse la vida– escribió una de las obras más prodigiosas de la literatura universal: Moby Dick . Moby Dick, o la ballena (1851) narra la historia del capitán Ajab, cuya sed de venganza le lleva a recorrer los mares sin descanso a bordo del ballenero Pequod en busca de Moby Dick, la enorme ballena blanca que, años atrás, le amputó una pierna en un feroz enfrentamiento. Toda su existencia gira en torno a una idea fija: volver a encontrarse con el monstruo, darle caza y acabar con su vida. Sólo entonces podrá descansar en paz. Para Melville, la caza de la ballena se transforma en una epopeya mitológica donde los arponeros son como semidioses. Ajab guarda claras analogías con Satán, el dictador del infierno, el seductor, el viajero cósmico «entregado a una desesperada venganza». Su determinación y su espíritu rebelde e indomable llegan a confundirse con la fatalidad de su destino. El odio que siente hacia Moby Dick no proviene de la evidente superioridad física de la ballena, sino de la superioridad intelectual que él le atribuye. Esta edición de Valdemar reproduce las cerca de 300 ilustraciones que realizó Rockwell Kent –uno de los grandes maestros de la ilustración en EEUU– para la histórica edición de 1930 de The Lakeside Press de Chicago. *** Nota: EL COSTE DE ENVÍO A CANARIAS ES 9.99 EUROS.
