The life of Samuel Johnson, LL. D by John Hawkins( Book )

95 editions published between 1787 and 2013 in English and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This the first and only scholarly edition of Sir John Hawkins's Life of Samuel Johnson, LL. D., a work that has not been widely available in complete form for more than two hundred years. Published in 1787, some four years before James Boswell's biography of Johnson, Hawkins's Life complements, clarifies, and often corrects numerous aspects of Boswell's Life. --from publisher's description
A general history of the science and practice of music by John Hawkins( Book )

89 editions published between 1776 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir John Hawkins (1719-1789), lawyer, friend of Samuel Johnson and member of the Academy of Ancient Music, published his pioneering five-volume history in 1776 just after the first volume of Burney's. Hawkins' work suffered badly in the resulting competition between the two, partly because of his difficult personality, partly because of the scholarly style of the writing contrasting with Burney's more engaging approach. However, it is Hawkins' accuracy and attention to detail, his appreciation of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century music and his account of London music society in the early eighteenth century, supported by his painstaking research, which makes the history of indispensable value to music scholars. Whilst there are neither contents list nor chapter headings, there is an index, and each volume includes generous illustrations and musical examples. Volume 1 includes a Preliminary discourse, the development of music notation, plainchant and music treatises of Arezzo and Boethius
The compleat angler by Izaak Walton( Book )

101 editions published between 1760 and 2006 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An immediate success upon its initial publication in 1653, The Compleat Angler has since become the most reprinted secular book in the English language. Here we join Piscator, Venator, and Auceps on a morning journey through the English countryside as Piscator advises on catching and eating different species of fish and expounds upon the satisfactions of the fisherman's life. More than a guide to the subtle intricacies of the sport, Walton's treatise is a graceful portrait of a simple life made rich by virtue and good friendship. -- from back cover
