32 editions published between 1895 and 1966 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defoe's account of the bubonic plague that swept London in 1665 remains as vivid as it is harrowing. Based on Defoe's own childhood memories and prodigious research, A Journal of the Plague Year walks the line between fiction, history, and reportage. In meticulous and unsentimental detail it renders the daily life of a city under siege; the often gruesome medical precautions and practices of the time; the mass panics of a frightened citizenry; and the solitary travails of Defoe's narrator, a man who decides to remain in the city through it all, chronicling the course of events with an unwavering eye. Defoe's Journal remains perhaps the greatest account of a natural disaster ever written. A novel recounting the individual tragedies of the great plague of 1665

6 editions published between 1901 and 2017 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Best remembered as the author of Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift was a Dublin native whose political pamphleteering led to a London-based position as editor of a conservative periodical. This letter-diary, written between 1710-1713 and addressed to Swift's longtime lover, sparkles with the satirist's renowned wit and offers an intimate account of the personalities, politics, and drama of Queen Anne's court."--

'The Critic: or, a Tragedy Rehearsed' is a political and literary satire, following in the vein of George Villiers' 'The Rehearsal' (1671), which takes jovial aim at the vanities of authors and politicians and at the foibles of the theatre itself. It was first performed at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane (which Sheridan owned and managed) in 1779. The play is Sheridan's response to the threat of a Franco-Spanish invasion in the summer of 1779
