Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Omar Khayyam( Book )

38 editions published between 1901 and 1925 in English and French and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eleventh century, in Persia, there lived a mathematician named Ghiyathuddin Abulfath Omar bin Ibrahim al-Khayyami--or, Omar, son of Abraham, the tent-maker. Omar wrote poetry, and while his rhymes received little attention in their day, they were rediscovered and translated into beautiful English--more than seven centuries later--by a gentleman and scholar named Edward FitzGerald. It was a meeting of minds, a great collaboration of the past and the present, and FitzGerald's rendition of those passionate verses has become one of the best loved poem cycles in the English language. With their concern for the here and now, as opposed to the hereafter, Omar Khayyam's quatrains are as romantic today as they were hundreds of years ago; they are a tribute to the power of one moment's pleasure over a lifetime of sorrow, of desire over the vicissitudes of time. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, presented here with Edward FitzGerald's original preface, is truly a classic, and it will stand forever as one of our finest monuments to love

Six exemplary novels by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra( Book )

6 editions published in 1900 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twelve novellas gathered together in Exemplary Novels reveal the extraordinary breadth of Cervantes's imagination: his nearly limitless ability to create characters, invent plots, and entertain readers across continents and centuries. Cervantes published his book in Spain in 1613. The assemblage of unique characters (eloquent witches, talking dogs, Gypsy orphans, and an array of others), the twisting plots, and the moral heart at the core of each tale proved irresistible to his enthusiastic audience. Then as now, Cervantes's readers find pure entertainment in his pages, but also a subtle artistry that invites deeper investigation. Edith Grossman's eagerly awaited translation brings this timeless classic to English-language readers in an edition that will delight those already familiar with Cervantes's work as well as those about to be enchanted for the first time. Roberto González Echevarria's illuminating introduction to the volume serves as both an appreciation of Cervantes's brilliance and a critical guide to the novellas and their significance"--Publisher's description

Eothen, or, Traces of travel brought home from the East by Alexander William Kinglake( Book )

9 editions published between 1910 and 1916 in English and German and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The camel kneels to receive her load, and for a while she will allow the packing to go on with silent resignation; but when she begins to suspect that her master is putting more than a just burden upon her poor hump, she turns round her supple neck, and looks sadly upon the increasing load, and then gently remonstrates against the wrong with the sigh of a patient wife. -from "Chapter XVII: The Desert" It's a century and a half old, and yet it is as strikingly modern as any literary memoir published today. A solitary Western traveler in the Middle East in 1834, this is an extraordinary work of travel writing that is more about the author's internal journey than it is about monuments and museums, one that replicates the personal experience of travel and how it changes who we are. Kinglake's intimate, conversational style and his sense of humor and irony lend Eothen-the title means "from the early dawn" or "from the East"-an air that still feels as fresh and original in the 21st century as it must have when it was first published in 1844
The pageant of Venice by Edward Hutton( Book )

7 editions published in 1922 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The girl and the faun by Eden Phillpotts( Book )

5 editions published between 1916 and 1917 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first days of spring in ancient Greece, the faun Coix falls for the most terribly beautiful creature he's ever beheld: the shepherd's daughter Iole. Despite Coix's best efforts, she chooses a mere human over him. Heartbroken and determined to win her back, Coix begs the god Pan to change him into a human so he can love Iole as she wants to be loved. But when he gets his wish, Coix awakens without his memory'and without Iole. Eden Phillpotts's classical fantasy will whisk you away to a world where shepherdesses are fair, gods wax philosophical, and where a lesson is always learned in the nick of time. "[From this book's paradise, the writer] can lay on his back, weave dreams of fancy, and watch with a gentle irony the metamorphoses of gods and men." 'The Saturday Review, 1926 Eden Phillpotts was born in India in 1862, but hailed from the United Kingdom from his early childhood forward. Known as a prolific young adult and mystery novelist, he penned about 250 works in his lifetime, including The Farmer's Wife, a comic play which Alfred Hitchcock later directed as a silent film. Later in his career, he explored his modern philosophy in a wealth of fantasy and early science-fiction novels
