Can you forgive her? by Anthony Trollope( Book )

23 editions published between 1948 and 1999 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CAN YOU FORGIVE HER? is the first of the six Palliser novels. In this volume Trollope examines parliamentary election and marriage, politics and privacy. He dissects the Victorian upper class. Issues and people shed their pretenses under his patient, ironic probe. But it is on women and their predicament that Trollope particularly focuses. "What should a woman do with her life?" asks Alice Vavasor. And each woman, being different and unique, has her own answer, from the uncomfortably married Lady Glencora to the coquettish Mrs. Greenow, to Alice's clear-headed cousin Kate
Tono-Bungay by H. G Wells( Book )

8 editions published between 1960 and 1994 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented as a miraculous cure-all, Tono-Bungay is in fact nothing other than a pleasant-tasting liquid with no positive effects. Nonetheless, when the young George Ponderevo is employed by his Uncle Edward to help market this ineffective medicine, he finds his life overwhelmed by its sudden success. Soon, the worthless substance is turned into a formidable fortune, as society becomes convinced of the merits of Tono-Bungay through a combination of skilled advertising and public credulity. As the newly rich George discovers, however, there is far more to class in England than merely the possession of wealth. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)

The compleat angler by Izaak Walton( Book )

12 editions published between 1949 and 1973 in English and held by 128 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

Memoirs of an infantry officer by Siegfried Sassoon( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1993 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1916, young George Sherston is deep in the trenches of WWI. For his decorated bravery, and also his harmful recklessness, he is soon sent to the Fourth Army School for officer training, then dispatched to Morlancourt, a raid, and on through the Somme. After being wounded by a bullet through the lung, he returns home to convalesce, where his questioning of the war and the British Military establishment leads him to write a public anti-war letter. Through the help of close friend David Cromlech, a medical board decides not to prosecute, but instead deem him to be mentally ill, suffering from shell-shock, and sends him to a hospital for treatment. (Based closely on author Sassoon's own war experiences, including the verbatim text of his "Finished with the War: A Soldier's Declaration", which was eventually read in the British House of Commons.)
