The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen (or Baron Münchhausen's Story of his Marvellous Travels) by Rudolf Erich Raspe - is an assortment of stories published in 1785, in view of the German adventure Karl Friedrich von Münchhausen. The stories were adapted and re-published in German by Gottfried August Bürger in 1786.The tales were made into films in 1911 (Les Aventures du Baron de Münchhausen), 1943 (Münchhausen, script by Erich Kästner), and 1961 (Aristocrat Prášil by director Karel Zeman). His most popular adventures feature in the 1979 movie The Very Same Munchhausen by Russian director Mark Zakharov, which portrays Münchhausen as a grievous person, battling against the conformity and hypocrisy of the world around him.An eighteenth-century German respectable ventured abroad for military services and got back with a series of amusingly outrageous stories. Baron Munchausen's astounding feats included riding cannonballs, going to the Moon, and hauling himself out of a lowland by his own hair. The audience was delighted to know about these unlikely adventures, and in 1785, the tales were gathered and published as Baron Munchausen's Narrative of his Marvellous Travels and Campaigns in Russia. By the nineteenth century, the stories had been transformed by several notable authors and had been translated into many languages.

Rudolf Erich Raspe

Rudolf Erich Raspe (March 1736 - 16 November 1794) was a German librarian, writer, and researcher. He is famous for his collection of tall stories The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen. His sarcastic work was initially intended as a satirical work with political aims. Raspe was born on 28 March 1736 in Hanover and studied law and jurisprudence in Leipzig. In 1765 he published his first collection of Leibniz's philosophical works. He went to England in 1775 after having gone to Italy for Landgrave's valuables. The Trewhiddle Ingot, found as in 2003, is a lamp of tungsten thought to be something like 150 years of age. This might originate before the earliest known refining of the metal.
