Most widely held works by W. S Lewis
The castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole( Book )

93 editions published between 1069 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published pseudonymously in 1764. The Castle of Otranto purported to be a translation of an Italian story of the time of the crusades. In it Walpole attempted, as he declared in the Preface to the second edition, 'to blend the two kinds of romance: the ancient and the modern'. He gives us a series of catastrophes, ghostly interventions, revelations of identity, and exciting contests. Crammed with invention, entertainment, terror, and pathos, the novel was an immediate success and Walpole's own favourite among his numerous works. His friend, the poet Thomas Gray, wrote that he and his family, having read Otranto, were now `afraid to go to bed o'nights'."--Publisher description
