Very very many books of hers at 'HathiTrust'/Google/etc. Presently processing a reasonably large (300+ page) one about her idol(?) Liszt- will take a bit. (Then will return to a more pressing project. Priorities, priorities :( ) Eric 03:46, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

I'm just about to upload vols. 1 and 2 of her edition of Liszt's Letters (English trans.). I hope that's not one on which you're working.--Cypressdome 03:53, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Nope, working on Liszt und die Frauen if I have the energy for downloading/processing a 300-odd page book in the next few days. We'll see! Must also see what other sites have books of hers, I wonder... :) (as with any book, especially one old enough to be in PD, but La Mara's work specifically, there can be and specifically are some known issues I gather- at least according to what I've read from Walker, whose approach to footnoteage ;) reminds me to be careful with him also of course - ... well, anyone.)

LOC Authorities recommends calling her La Mara, actually, the pseudonym/nom de plume under which she wrote quite a few (though not, it seems, quite as absolutely many as I thought, if a quick research run tonight is indicative?) of her biographical and historical writings. While Wikipedia (English, German and others) disagree, going by one or another of her given names, ALG is admittedly probably a better guide here- except that I am of two minds here, more inclined to go by her given name because it is that. I can see the other point of view certainly and I agree it is a very very strong one. Anyone? Eric 07:49, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
