    First published in 1949 and praised in the New York Times Book Review as "full of beauty and vigor and bite", A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land. This classic work remains as relevant today as it was nearly 70 years ago.

    Not since Thoreau took us to Walden Pond has there been such an important work on the natural world. A Sand County Almanac is Aldo Leopold's simple expression of feeling for the environment at his weekend farm along the Wisconsin River. It is an inviting, gentle world - one that is rapidly disappearing.

    If you've ever been curious about where the term "masochism" comes from, you will find it laden in the pages of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece, Venus in Furs, for whom the term was named. Drawn in part from his own life experiences, Sacher-Masoch's novel develops an eroticism unlike any other. The book's protagonist, Severin, is so infatuated and obsessed with the object of his desire, Wanda, that he asks to be her slave. Although hesitant at first, Wanda's treatment of Severin becomes more and more depraved, fueling Severin's own desires for cruelty.

A compelling well written story it has inspired and influenced many psychologists, artists, writers and musicians from Thomas Mann to the Velvet Underground and even Freud, since its first publication in 1870.

    "Eine neue Verschwörung der Garden ist entdeckt!" Das war der Morgengruß Orlows am 23. Mai 1765 an die Zarin Katharina II. Sie sprang mit beiden Füßen aus dem Bette und fasste den Günstling bei dem Goldkragen seiner Uniform. "Hast du sie verhaftet, Gregor?", rief sie zornig. "Sie sind in deiner Hand, Katharina." Die Kaiserin nickte und zeigte vergnügt lächelnd ihre schönen Zähne, dann warf sie einen mit flandrischen Spitzen besetzten leichten Schlafrock über sich, riss an der Glocke und rief ihre Vertrauten.

    Der erste Maitag 1767 täuschte die Erwartungen der Bewohner von Moskau in keiner Weise. Dieser anmutigste der russischen Festtage wird Jahr für Jahr durch eine allgemeine Ausfahrt nach einem nur wenige Werft entfernten Gehölze gefeiert; da aber nur zu oft ein neu eintretender Frost oder Regen die Freude verdirbt, wird schon mehrere Tage vorher ängstlich nach jedem Wölkchen ausgelugt.

    Still wildly popular today, this collection of ghost stories was first published in 1919. A few of the stories reflect the prejudices and language of the era and would not be considered "politically correct" now but are nonetheless excellent stories. Arthur B. Reeves, an American writer who also wrote screenplays compiled this anthology. His introduction is considered by many to be the definitive explanation of the popularity and diversity of this genre. Turn off the lights and prepare to be thrilled and chilled by this unique assemblage of spooky tales.

    L'amore ha molte sfaccettature, o sfumature, come in un celebre romanzo erotico che racconta una di una relazione amorosa e di possesso assoluto. Allo stesso modo, "Venere in pelliccia" narra una vicenda che affronta gli aspetti più nascosti e patologici dell'amore: la relazione di sottomissione e sudditanza totale di un uomo nei confronti della donna che ama, che diventa la sua padrona.

    "Koltoff war in der ersten Sekunde von der jugendlichen majestätischen Gestalt, dem feinen, geistvollen Gesichte, den großen, blitzenden, schwarzen Augen der schönen Amazone überrascht, in der zweiten geblendet, und in der dritten bis zum Wahnsinn verliebt. Die Fürstin trug ihr dunkles, nur ganz leicht gepudertes Haar in einem großen, von einem hellroten Bande zusammengehaltenen Knoten, über dem duftigen weißen Spitzennegligee einen Schlafpelz von rotem Atlas mit reichem Hermelinbesatz, nach damaliger Mode in der Taille knapp anschließend und dann in reichen Falten sich einbauschend bis zu der Schleppe, welche weit zurückfloss."

    "Wieder verknüpft", rief die Dame, welche in einem wogenden Duft von Musselin und Spitzen da saß, und stampfte dabei mit dem kleinen Fuße ungeduldig auf, so dass der goldbestickte Samtpantoffel und der durchbrochene Strumpf sichtbar wurden. "Sehen Sie mich nicht so verliebt an, Lanskoi, Sie sind schuld mit ihren schmachtenden Augen, Sie allein!" "Wieso ich Sie aber ansehen?", fragte der schöne Lanskoi naiv, "ich kann nicht verbergen, was ich für Sie fühle, Gräfin Branischka, ich kann es nicht!"
