Mr. Pepys and Mr. Evelyn by Clara Marburg Kirk( Book )

18 editions published between 1935 and 2016 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel Pepys' FRS, MP, JP, (pron.: /pi?ps/;[1] 23 February 1633 ? 26 May 1703) was an English naval administrator and Member of Parliament who is now most famous for the diary he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. Although Pepys had no maritime experience, he rose by patronage, hard work and his talent for administration, to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and subsequently King James II. His influence and reforms at the Admiralty were important in the early professionalisation of the Royal Navy.[2] The detailed private diary Pepys kept from 1660 until 1669 was first published in the 19th century, and is one of the most important primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Fire of London."--Wikipedia

The Altrurian romances by William Dean Howells( Book )

9 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Altrurian Romances(1968)of William Dean Howells consists of three utopias: A Traveller from Altruria(1894), "The Letters of an Altrurian Traveller" (1893-94), and Through the Eye of the Needle (1907). The Altrurian traveller, Aristides Homos, visits the United States in 1892 and stays there for about a year and a half, visiting a New Hampshire mountain resort hotel, New York City and Chicago. These romances record Homos's criticisms of the social, political, and economic conditions of the industrial, capitalistic and "plutocratic" America. The Commonwealth of Altruria has attained the Utopian dream of brotherly equality through literal applications of the principles of "liberty, equality, and fraternity." Howells uses Homos as his spokesman in such a way that Homos's account of his country implies every insulting criticism of America. By letting the Altrurian Homos and his American wife describe the conditions of Altruria where complete social, political, and economic equality has been attained, Howells effectively draws the people's attention to his call for social justice through return to the ideals of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution,especially through the strict observance of the principles of "liberty, equality, and fraternity." -- University of Ryukyus Repository
