A man of mark. A novel by Anthony Hope( Book )

72 editions published between 1800 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the year 1884 the Republic of Aureataland was certainly not in a flourishing condition. Although most happily situated (it lies on the coast of South America, rather to the north-I mustn't be more definite), and gifted with an extensive territory, nearly as big as Yorkshire, it had yet failed to make that material progress which had been hoped by its founders. It is true that the state was still in its infancy, being an offshoot from another and larger realm, and having obtained the boon of freedom and self-government only as recently as 1871, after a series of political convulsions of a violent character, which may be studied with advantage in the well-known history of "The Making of Aureataland," by a learned professor of the Jeremiah P. Jecks University in the United States of America. This profound historian is, beyond all question, accurate in attributing the chief share in the national movement to the energy and ability of the first President of Aureataland, his Excellency, President Marcus W. Whittingham, a native of Virginia. Having enjoyed a personal friendship (not, unhappily, extended to public affairs) with that talented man, as will subsequently appear, I have great pleasure in publicly indorsing the professor's eulogium. Not only did the President bring Aureataland into being, but he molded her whole constitution
Comedies of courtship by Anthony Hope( Book )

36 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in English and German and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories are without exception bright, racy, readable, clever." So writes the London Literary World in its review of this collection of tales, which includes the popular narrative, The Wheel of Love." As comedies these stories are filled with wit, ingenuity, and satire and while the plots are varied, each possesses a light romantic spirit
Double harness by Anthony Hope( Book )

30 editions published between 1903 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Hope's early literary output consisted largely of court romances packed with action-adventure elements, but in the later phases of his development as an artist, he toned down the fantasy and began to focus on grittier, more realistic topics. Double Harness is a gripping in-depth character study that follows the ups and downs of an assortment of married couples and unmarried singles over the course of their lives
Second string by Anthony Hope( Book )

25 editions published between 1910 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A portrait of early twentieth-century English life, Second String tells the engrossing story of Vivian Wellgood and her fiancé, Harry Belfield, who is on the threshold of a brilliant political career.

Father Stafford by Anthony Hope( Book )

45 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The novel begins The world considered Eugene Lane a very fortunate young man; and if youth, health, social reputation, a seat in Parliament, a large income, and finally the promised hand of an acknowledged beauty can make a man happy, the world was right." In this book, a young Anglican priest, torn between love and faith, must reconcile the urgings of body and soul
Captain Dieppe by Anthony Hope( Book )

31 editions published between 1899 and 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the eye of an onlooker Captain Dieppe's circumstances afforded high spirits no opportunity, and made ordinary cheerfulness a virtue which a stoic would not have disdained to own. Fresh from the failure of important plans; if not exactly a fugitive, still a man to whom recognition would be inconvenient and perhaps dangerous; with fifty francs in his pocket, and his spare wardrobe in a knapsack on his back; without immediate prospect of future employment or a replenishment of his purse; yet by no means in his first youth or of an age when men love to begin the world utterly afresh; in few words, with none of those inner comforts of the mind which make external hardships no more than a pleasurable contrast, he marched up a long steep hill in the growing dusk of a stormy evening, his best hope to find, before he was soaked to the skin, some poor inn or poorer cottage where he might get food and beg shelter from the severity of the wind and rain that swept across the high ground and swooped down on the deep valleys, seeming to assail with a peculiar, conscious malice the human figure which faced them with unflinching front and the buoyant step of strength and confidence
