The faerie queene by Edmund Spenser( Book )

59 editions published between 1970 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Faerie Queene is one of the great seminal masterpieces of English literature, and has influenced, inspired and challenged generations of writers, readers and scholars since its completion in 1596. Its vigorous narrative and colorful descriptions make it appear superficially one of the most accessible of major works; but it is perhaps the hardest of all to come to grips with, because of its epic length, its prodigality of incident and detail, the complexity of its allegory and the richness of its topical allusions. Few works so much demand or repay introduction and annotation - yet there had been no adequate complete critical edition available for the scholar, student or general reader until Professor Hamilton's edition, itself a work of major scholarship, appeared in 1977. It provides exceptionally full and careful annotation of the text, detailed guidance to critical comment past and present, and a wealth of introductory material setting the poem in its full historical and literary context. Now the eagerly-awaited paperback version makes the full richness and intricacy of the great poem accessible to students and poetry lovers everywhere. -- from back cover

Science in the kitchen and the art of eating well by Pellegrino Artusi( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"First published in 1891, Pelegrino Artusi's La scienza in cucina e l'arte di mangiar bene has come to be recognized as the most significant Italian cookbook of modern times. It was reprinted thirteen times and had sold more than 52,000 copies in the years before Artusi's death in 1910, with the number of recipes growing from 475 to 790. And while this figure has not changed, the book has consistently remained in print." "Although Artusi was himself of the upper classes and it was doubtful he had ever touched a kitchen utensil of lit a fire under a pot, he wrote the book not for professional chefs, as was the nineteenth-century custom, but for middle-class family cooks: housewives and their domestic helpers. His tone is that of a friendly advisor - humorous and nonchalant. He indulges in witty anecdotes about many of the recipes, describing his experiences and the historical relevance of particular dishes." "This English edition features a delightful introduction by Luigi Ballerini that traces the fascinating history of the book and explains its importance in the context of Italian history and politics. The illustrations are by the noted Italian artist Giuliano Della Casa."--Jacket
