#22664 The Severed Hand (chapbook? picture book?)
from 1869 German Tales, American Publishers' Corporation
text "I was born in Constantinople; my father was a dragoman at the Porte, and besides, carried on a fairly lucrative business in sweet-scented perfumes and silk goods. He gave me a good education; he partly instructed me himself, and also had me instructed by one of our priests. He at first intended me to succeed him in business one day, but as I showed greater aptitude than he had expected, he destined me, on the advice of his friends, to be a doctor; for if a doctor has learned a little more than the ordinary charlatan, he can make his fortune in Constantinople."
text finale "Every year since, I have received a thousand gold-pieces; and although I rejoice to know that unfortunate man to be noble, yet he cannot relieve me of the sorrow of my soul, for the terrible picture of the murdered Bianca is continually on my mind."

7 Introduction (Translation of Einleitung) --climax, p12-13

“If the old, deluded by Fashion, value thee at nothing, then turn thee to the young; truly they are my little favorites. I send to them my loveliest pictures through thy brothers, the Dreams; ... “Oh, the dear children!” exclaimed Märchen, deeply affected. “Yes—be it so! with them I will make one more trial.” “Yes, my good child,” answered the Queen; “go unto them; but I will attire thee in fine style, that thou mayest please the little ones, and that the old may not drive thee away. See! the dress of an Almanach[B] will I give thee.”

  • Footnotes (only two in the work):
[A] Märchen represents the fairy or legendary tales, of which the Germans were at one time so fond.
[B]The German “Almanach” corresponds in a measure with the English “Annual.”

He was one of the primary movers in the creation of Supernatural Fiction based on folk roots as distinct from Gothic Fantasy, which was developing in parallel. JLT wrote little in the second half of his life, preferring to translate and edit the works of others; in 1841 he became the reader to Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia. [MA]

1913 novella notes relocated

Dr. A. S. Rappoport is a candidate, as author of the 1913 introduction and at least one German--English translation, Template:LCCN. In the 1913 anthology (and Gutenberg ebook), the "Introduction by Dr.A.S.Rappoport" (per title page), pp. vii-xiv, closes "A. S. Rappoport." and "Berck-Plage, September, 1913". It is biographical with a few pages on this story, during Chamisso's lifetime, in the chronological place of its composition, 1814.

The text of this translation begins (quote):   Author's Introduction [<a href="">see also</a>]   A Letter from Chamisso to Julius Edward Hitzig.   You, who forget nobody, must surely remember one Peter Schlemihl, whom you used to meet occasionally at my house,--a long-legged youth, who was considered stupid and lazy, on account of his awkward and careless air. ...

intro The Cold Heart closes "H. Robertson Murray" (no date)
  • "Hauff began his remarkable literary career with the publication in November, 1825, of his "Fairy Tale Annual for 1826.""
  • "a new translation of which is published in the present volume."
  • "Unlike the majority of his fairy-tales, it owes something of its origin to folk-lore, as it is based on an old Black Forest Legend. But the human figures in the story are Hauff's very own; those conversant with the master's works will recognise in Charcoal Peter and Fat Ezekiel characters which only Hauff could have created."
text Part I, "He who travels through Suabia should not pass without seeing something of the Black Forest; not because of the trees, although such countless masses of stately pines are not to be met with everywhere; but because of the people, who differ remarkably from their neighbours on every side."
text Part II, "On the Monday morning when Peter arrived at his Glassworks, he found not only his workpeople there, but also some very unwelcome visitors; these were the Bailiff and three of his myrmidons."
... Printed by Ebenezer Baylis & Son, Trinity Works, Worcester.

Christian, You must know that the legal name bears no relation to the canonical name here at ISFDB.
And it's the name in the article title (and {DEFAULTSORT}, which is relevant to Chamisso vs "
Of course I didn't resubmit what had been rejected.
> "John Bowring at Wikipedia, LC, DNB. We have no publication under this name and the only work is one uncredited translator's note. [whitespace] There are no publications associated with this title."
Christian fastened on Wikipedia, presumably in reference to the boldface name in the lead sentence (perhaps the boldface name above the portrait image, whose caption uses "John Bowring", neither of which repetition is recommended). The boldface lead is relevant only to our Legal name, if at all.
That is correct of all three canonical names. (I intended the national library of Germany. He is also "Bowring, John" in the British DNB (Dictionary of National Biography), but "Bowring, Sir John" in another British biographical source at Wikidata, the Oxford ddnb or whatever.)
So I submitted a much longer explanation.
> We have no publications under the name with or without the title, and our only work by this writer is an anonymous translator's note.
> British Library record of the 1824 publication credits translation by J. Bowring. Contemporary review in The Examiner credits Mr. Bowring. His canonical name is "John Bowring" in the US and German national libraries (LC and DNB) and "John Bowring" at Wikipedia.
> The title is not universal even in British sources. For instance he is "John" in the British DNB and "Sir John" in the Oxford [similar name biographical encyclopedia]. . There are no publications under this name, [whitespace] There are no publications associated with this title."
(That closing is equivocal or incoherent. At the moment, we have no publications under the names 'John' or 'Bowring', nor the title 'Sir'. Probably I meant "this ISFDB Title record", however. ) --Pwendt|talk 13:03, 25 March 2020 (EDT)
