The Adventures of Telemachus, the son of Ulysses by François de Salignac de La Mothe- Fénelon( Book )

104 editions published between 1758 and 1983 in English and German and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A romance based upon Telemachus's voyage in the Odyssey, with the intent to teach the skills and morals of an enlightened ruler. The Adventures of Telemachus is Bishop Fenelon's 1699 "mirror for princes," written especially for Duc de Burgogne, heir presumptive to Louis XIV. Both in its original French and its many translations, The Adventures of Telemachus was one of the most popular and revered works of the eighteenth century. During that time, more than ten English prose and poetry versions appeared
Almoran and Hamet : an oriental tale in two volumes by John Hawkesworth( )

79 editions published between 1761 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 901 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of His Present Majesty for making discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Wallis, Captain Carteret, and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour : drawn up from the journals which were kept by the several commanders, and from the papers of Joseph Banks, Esq by John Hawkesworth( Book )

133 editions published between 1773 and 1983 in 5 languages and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bestseller in its day, this three-volume work vividly recounts significant voyages made by Britain's leading navigators. A prominent figure in London cultural life, John Hawkesworth (c.1720-73) was commissioned by the Admiralty to compile, from the captains' journals, the official record of voyages which included James Cook's first journey to the South Pacific. Reissued here is the Dublin edition based on the first printing of 1773; a second edition appeared later in the year. Critical opinion was fierce, however, with Hawkesworth accused of impiety, manipulating the original texts and promoting the sexual freedoms of Pacific islanders. Devastated by these attacks, he died the same year. Later taken aboard the Beagle with Darwin, the work still speaks to scholars and students of nautical exploration. Volume 1 includes accounts of voyages by John Byron, Philip Carteret and Samuel Wallis - notably the latter's discovery of Tahiti
