Most widely held works by Roger Sharrock
The pilgrim's progress from this world to that which is to come by John Bunyan( Book )

107 editions published between 1960 and 1987 in 3 languages and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bunyan wrote the first part of "The pilgrim's progress" when he was in prison as a Baptist preacher. In his hands a pious tract is transformed into a work of imaginative literature which has been more widely read than any book in English except the Bible. Its influence, both indirectly on the English consciousness and directly on the literature that followed, has been immeasurable. The rich countryman's phrases that Bunyan borrowed or invented have become enshrined in the language, and many of the characters he created to people his imaginary world have won for themselves an independent and unforgettable existence

Grace abounding to the chief of sinners by John Bunyan( Book )

23 editions published between 1962 and 1977 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an age when religious radicalism was regarded as socially subversive, Bunyan’s Grace Abounding describes the spiritual regeneration of one who came from ‘that rank that is meanest and most despised’. God and Satan are the chief protagonists in Bunyan’s drama: they exist not as theological concepts but as terrifyingly immediate adversaries in the competition for Bunyan’s soul. ‘What care I,’ says Satan to Bunyan, ‘though I be seven years in chilling your heart, if I can do it at last?’ Bunyan finds his spiritual defences not so much in God as in the Bible, and Grace Abounding charts his passionate and imaginative involvement with this ultimate source of spiritual wisdom." -- summary from https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/
The life and death of Mr. Badman : presented to the world in a familiar dialogue between Mr. Wiseman and Mr. Attentive by John Bunyan( Book )

13 editions published between 1929 and 2002 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Designed as a companion to The Pilgrim's Progress and was published by Nathaniel Ponder. The two characters have a dialogue about sin and redemption over the course of a long day. In his preface titled "The Author to the Reader," Bunyan announces that Mr Badman is a pseudonym for a real man who is dead. Mr Badman's relatives and offspring continue to populate Earth, which "reels and staggereth to and fro like a Drunkard, the transgression thereof is heavy upon it." In a mock eulogy, Bunyan says Mr Badman did not earn four themes commonly part of a funeral for a great man. First, there is no wrought image that will serve as a memorial, and Bunyan's work will have to suffice. Second, Mr Badman died without Honour, so he earned no badges and scutcheons. Third, his life did not merit a sermon. Fourth, no one will mourn and lament his death. Bunyan then describes the sort of Hell awaiting Mr Badman, citing Scripture. He said he published it to address the wickedness and debauchery that had corrupted England, as was his duty as a Christian, in hopes of delivering himself "from the ruins of them that perish."

Selected poems and letters by John Keats( Book )

12 editions published between 1964 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most popular of the Romantic poets, Keats' poetry is suffused with adoration for natural beauty, exploration of joy and pain, and ideas on the transience of life. This new collection combines many of Keats' well-loved poems - from 'Ode to a Nightingale' to 'Bright Star' - with his letters, often studied, analysed and admired in parallel and offering a fascinating insight into the life and mind of the famous poet. Despite a lack of recognition during his own lifetime, Keats' work has touched the hearts and minds of many, and deserves its place in the canon of English literature
