Can you forgive her? by Anthony Trollope( Book )

28 editions published between 1948 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of Anthony Trollope's six "Palliser" novels focuses on the matrimonial prospects of three Victorian ladies. Alice Vavasor is torn between her Byronic cousin George, whose wild ardor contrasts sharply with her honest but unexciting admirer, John Grey. Lady Glencora McCluskie, heiress to a Scottish industrial fortune, is wife to Plantagenet Palliser, heir to the Duke of Omnium. But theirs is an arranged marriage, and Glencora grows increasingly infatuated with the rakish Burgo Fitzgerald. And the Widow Greenow is obliged to choose between two suitors, the dependable Mr. Cheeseacre and the dashing Captain Bellfield. Can You Forgive Her? also offers a delicious satire of parliamentary politics. Populated by a cast of politicians and place-hunters, the story explores the tensions between reform and tradition as well as the interplay between money, authority, and politics. The 1864 novel remains remarkably contemporary in its portrait of a society in which wealth and influence outpace wisdom and integrity in the pursuit of power
Tono-Bungay by H. G Wells( Book )

8 editions published between 1960 and 1994 in English and held by 340 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."--Goodreads
A grass rope by William Mayne( Book )

An old legend provides the clues for a treasure hunt in the Yorkshire Dales. The seekers are Nan and Mary from the farm, Peter from the inn and Adam Forest the head boy from Nan's school. The first clue was concealed in the old signboard at the inn and the last somewhere inside a hill but the one that was most important was a unicorn. Adam was to old to bother with unicorns and thought he could work everything out by science. Mary was too young for science so called the fairies for help and prepared a grass rope so that she could catch the unicorn

The compleat angler, or, The contemplative man's recreation by Izaak Walton( Book )

10 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
