Santa Claus's partner by Thomas Nelson Page( )

2 editions published in 1899 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A children's novel about Santa Claus and a man who helps him deliver toys to the children in his town, Santa Claus's Partner depicts Santa's workshop, the North Pole, elves and reindeer with beautiful color illustrations. Elves have been depicted as Santa's traditional helpers as early as 1850, when Louisa May Alcott completed, but never published a book entitled Christmas Elves. The small creatures assist in the toy-making process in Santa's workshop at the North Pole and are traditionally described as wearing green or red and having pointed ears. In some works, including Clement C. Moore's famous "'Twas the Night Before Christmas," Santa himself is described as "a right jolly old elf."

The autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini by Benvenuto Cellini( Book )

1 edition published in 1906 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benvenuto Cellini was a celebrated Renaissance sculptor and goldsmith; a passionate craftsman who was admired and resented by the most powerful political and artistic personalities in sixteenth-century Florence, Rome and Paris. He was also a murderer and a braggart, a shameless adventurer who at different times experienced both papal persecution and imprisonment, and the adulation of the royal court. Inn-keepers and prostitutes, kings and cardinals, artists and soldiers rub shoulders in the pages of his notorious autobiography: a vivid portrait of the manners and morals of both the rulers of the day and of their subjects. Written with supreme powers of invective and an irrepressible sense of humor, this is an unrivalled glimpse into the palaces and prisons of the Italy of Michelangelo and the Medici

The touchstone by Edith Wharton( Book )

1 edition published in 1900 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Glancing by chance at an advertisement in the Spectator, Stephen Glennard perceives a way to escape the downward spiral his career has taken, begin a new life for himself, and win the hand of the beautiful Alexa Trent. It would seem he has one highly sought-after possession: the letters written to him by the eminent and now deceased author, Margaret Aubyn. All he need do is silence his uneasy conscience and sell the letters for publication." "As the publicity frenzy around its publication heightens, the Aubyn Letters becomes the latest hot topic among the glamorous and money-driven society that Glennard's wealth now gives him entree to. And the source of greatest fascination is the identity of the man whom Aubyn so adored by who has betrayed her so irrevocably. Glennard, resolute in his silence, can only watch in dismay as, from the grave, Aubyn begins to exert a powerful and unmistakable influence over him."--Jacket
