Vienna

for the rest of his life. Impressed by one of Eminescu's poems, ''Venere şi Madonă'' (''Venus and Madonna''), Iacob Negruzzi, the editor of ''Convorbiri literare'', traveled to Vienna to meet him. Negruzzi would later write how he could pick Eminescu out of a crowd of young people in a Viennese café by his "romantic" appearance: long hair and gaze lost in thoughts. He was born at Rennes, where he was apprenticed to a bookseller. Sent abroad on business, he remained in Vienna from 1819 to 1824, and there drew up the first volumes of his great work, ''La France littéraire, ou Dictionnaire bibliographique des savants, historiens, et gens de lettres de la France, &c.'' (14 vols., 1826-1842), dealing especially with the 18th and early 19th centuries, which he was enabled to complete by a government subsidy granted by Guizot (François Guizot) in 1830, and by the help of the Russian bibliophile Serge Poltoratzky. The firm of Didot, who were his publishers, took out of his hands the ''Littérature française contemporaine'' with which he had intended to complete his work, and placed it with Ch. Louandre and F. Bourquelot. Quérard avenged himself by pointing out the errors of his successors. In spite of his claims Quérard was unable to secure a position in any of the public libraries. He died in Paris. His son, Richard Scarry, Jr., is also an illustrator, sometimes working under the nickname Huck Scarry, sometimes working in his father's style as Richard Scarry. Huck is the nickname of Huckle Cat, one of the most commonly recurring Busytown characters. Scarry Jr. lives in Vienna, Austria; socialites Olympia and Fiona Scarry are his daughters. right thumb Anschluss-era cover, May 1938, mixed franking of Austrian and German stamps (Image:Cover Austria 1938-650px.jpg) In early 1938 the Anschluss put a sudden end to Austria's stamps. Although the entry of German troops in March was sudden, the transition of the postal system took several months; and included a period where German stamps were required in addition to Austrian stamps (a mixed franking). The cover to the right, for instance, was mailed on 6 May 1938 from Vienna to Freiburg im Breisgau, then was forwarded to Hamburg. (Receiving marks on the back indicate that it arrived in Hamburg on the 8th of May.) After the transition period was over, Austrians used stamps of Germany until the end of the Third Reich in 1945. The son of Grassalkovich I, Antal Grassalkovich II (1734-1794), who was raised to the rank of prince, cared little for the estate. He leased out the properties one after the other, liquidated the household in Gödöllõ and moved to Vienna. Following his death, the estate, heavily charged with debts, was inherited by his son, Antal Grassalkovich III. Grassalkovich III, who continued to increase the debts, died without opffspring, hence the properties were inherited on the female line. thumb 250px In some countries, seated conductors were introduced in the post-war decades. On this double-decker bus (File:Seated conductor.jpg) which operated in Vienna, Austria from the early 1960s, passengers were obliged to board the vehicle at the rear, pass the conductor and alight through the middle or front entrances. The new designs of rear-engined buses and so-called "one person operation" were adopted quickly by some municipal operators, more slowly by others. New half-cab buses continued to be ordered by the more conservative municipal operators through the 1960s, but manufacture of this type of vehicle for the UK market had ceased by about 1970. This was accelerated by a UK Government grant which supported the purchase of "one person operated" vehicles but was not available for purchase of traditional half-cab buses. History The Minoritenkirche stands in the Innere Stadt of Vienna, northwest of the Hofburg, at the Minoritenplatz. The Minoriten were Franciscan monks (Latin: ''"fratres minores"''). They were appointed in 1224 to Vienna. Early career Hardenberg was born at Essenrode (now a part of Lehre) near Hanover. After studying at Leipzig and Göttingen (University of Göttingen) he entered the Hanoverian civil service in 1770 as councillor of the board of domains (''Kammerrat''); but, finding his advancement slow, he set out — on the advice of King George III of the United Kingdom — on a series of travels, spending some time at Wetzlar, Regensburg (where he studied the mechanism of the Imperial (Holy Roman Empire) government), Vienna and Berlin. He also visited France, the Dutch Republic and Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain), where he was received kindly by the King. On his return, he married, at his father's suggestion, the Countess Reventlow. He served in Egypt, and was seriously wounded at Aboukir. His devotion to Napoleon was rewarded by complete confidence. He became first ''aide-de-camp'' (1798), general of brigade (1800), and governor of the Tuileries. After the battle of Marengo, he was sent on missions to Vienna, St Petersburg (Russia), Stockholm and Copenhagen. birth_date 1880 birth_place Vienna, Austria-Hungary death_date 1903 DATE OF BIRTH April 3, 1880 PLACE OF BIRTH Vienna, Austria DATE OF DEATH October 4, 1903 Hoboken trained as an engineer in Delft, before studying music in Frankfurt and Vienna. He began collecting early editions of music from Bach to Brahms; eventually this collection amounted to over 5,000 items and is now in the Austrian National Library in Vienna. He moved from Austria to Switzerland in 1938. Following the rule in Libya having been taken over by Muammar Gaddafi in 1969, the airline was renamed '''Libyan Arab Airlines''' (commonly abbreviated '''LAA'''). During the 1970s, Boeing 727s for short-haul routes and Boeing 707s for long-haul flights became the backbone of the fleet, allowing for a growing route network. Until 1986, flights to European destinations like Amsterdam, Belgrade, Bucharest, Budapest, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, Prague, Sofia, Vienna, Warsaw and Zurich had been commenced, as well as to Algiers, Khartoum, Kuwait and Karachi.

Military operations against Sweden’s Baltic provinces were to be begun simultaneously by the Saxons and Russians. After thus forging the first link of the partition treaty, Patkul proceeded to Moscow, and, at a secret conference held at Preobrazhenskoye, easily persuaded Peter the Great (Peter I of Russia) to accede to the league on November 18, 1699. Throughout the earlier, unluckier days of the Great Northern War, Patkul was the mainstay of the confederates. At Vienna, in 1702, he picked up the Scottish (Scotland) general George Benedict Ogilvie, and enlisted him in Peter’s service. - 37. 6 February 2008 Ernst-Happel-Stadion, Vienna, Austria Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
