A tremendous collection of literature has been produced by Londoners and about London, and in this 1913 volume, University of Chicago literature professor Percy H. Boynton explores the rich literary heritage of the English cultural capital. Boynton takes the reader on a journey from the medieval walled town of Geoffrey Chaucer to the cosmopolitan metropolis known by authors of the Victorian age, providing valuable historical and social context along the way. For the dedicated scholar (or for those just interested in traveling back to another period of London history), Boynton also provides bibliographies of significant works from each major historical period as well as an extensive list of novels illustrative of London life

The spy by James Fenimore Cooper( Book )

3 editions published between 1928 and 1930 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by accusations of venality leveled at the men who captured Major Andre (Benedict Arnold's co-conspirator, executed for espionage in 1780), Cooper's novel centers on Harry Birch, a common man wrongly suspected by well-born Patriots of being a spy for the British. Even George Washington, who supports Birch, misreads the man, and when Washington offers him payment for information vital to the Patriot's cause, Birch scorns the money and asserts that his action were motivated not by financial reward, but by his devotion to the fight for independence. A historical adventure tale reminiscent of Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, The Spy is also a parable of the American experience, a reminder that the nation's survival, like its Revolution, depends on judging people by their actions, not their class or reputations
