Знаменитый труд (оставшийся незаконченным) известнейшего древнегреческого историка Геродота в русских изданиях условно называется «Историей». В иностранных издания он носит разные названия «Музы Геродота», «Истории Геродота», «Геродот» и наконец в нашем случае «Персидские войны».

Freuen Sie sich darauf, used to be diesem herrlich verrückten Autor für seine neue Protagonistin eingefallen ist!

Die aberwitzige Geschichte der jungen Afrikanerin Nombeko, die zwar nicht lesen kann, aber ein Rechengenie ist, quick zufällig bei der Konstruktion nuklearer Sprengköpfe mithilft und nebenbei Verhandlungen mit den Mächtigen der Welt führt. Nach einem besonders brisanten Geschäft setzt sie sich nach Schweden ab, wo ihr die große Liebe begegnet.

Spitzzüngig und mit viel schwarzem Humor rechnet Jonasson in seinem neuesten Roman mit dem Fundamentalismus in all seinen Erscheinungsformen ab. Eine grandiose Geschichte, die dem »Hundertjährigen« an überbordenden Einfällen, skurrilen Wendungen und unvergesslichem Charme in nichts nachsteht!

Example text

32 In this respect, a study of flag watermarks over a 40-year period has indicated that whilst material can be misdated, rogue sheets are rare enough that one has yet to be found. The exception taken to paper evidence is, at best, an important caveat against carelessness. 32 For instance, it ought to be possible to analyze the watermarks of the correspondence in the State Papers, Cotton, Lansdowne, and Tanner manuscripts and calculate the number of strays against the number of items as a whole. Further, one could then calculate the average variance of a stray to the main group of dates for any given watermark.

1 Modern forms of oral record (such as film and tape, as well as their subsequent mutations including digital encryption) are simply other surfaces on which we preserve text, sound, and sometimes action (sophisticated forms of ‘paper’, as it were, that require particular technologies for their reading), in order that we do not depend on the ritualized transmission of the spoken word. It is important to recognize and account for the role of memory in the transmission of early modern texts,2 however much we depend on the written and material record.

Fourth, we might want to fix a series of documents at points in time, often because we need to know the sequence they were written in, but sometimes for reasons of textual analysis as well: for instance, if the paper of a manuscript shows it to be earlier than a group of copies that it is generally associated with, then this may be an indication that that first manuscript is related to an earlier stage of the transmission process. This would appear to be true of British Library Harley MS 4064. Commonsense will usually deal with the apparent exceptions should a watermark fall outside the period in which it might be expected.
