Harvey Cheyne is the over-indulged son of a millionaire. When he falls overboard from an ocean liner he is rescued by a Portuguese fisherman and, initially against his will, joins the crew of the We're Here for a summer. Through the medium of an exciting adventure story, Captains Courageous (1897) deals with a boy who, like Mowgli in The Jungle Book, is thrown into an entirely alien environment.

Linley Sambourne : illustrator and Punch cartoonist by Leonée Ormond( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Linley Sambourne died in 1910, a host of obituaries paid tribute to his long career as a cartoonist and his contribution to late Victorian and Edwardian political satire. For more than forty years he had been a draughtsman for the comic magazine Punch, rising to the position of 'First Cartoonist' in his final decade. To his many friends Sambourne was a natural humorist, a teller of comic tales, a lively and cheerful companion. He was a frequent guest of the rich and successful, but his origins were very different. Sambourne rose in the world through a blend of talent and hard work. He is remembered for his imaginative and stylized cartoons, often reproduced as illustrations to studies of the social and political mores of his time
The reception of Alfred Tennyson in Europe( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) has often been considered a particularly British writer in part as his official post as Poet Laureate inevitably committed him to a certain amount of patriotic writing. This volume focuses on his impact on the continent, presenting a major scholarly analysis of Tennyson's wider reception in different areas of Europe. It considers reader and critical responses and explores the effect of his poetry upon his contemporaries and later writers, as well as his influence upon illustrators, painters and musicians. The leading international contributors raise questions of translation and publication and of the choices made for this purpose along with the way in which his ideas and style influenced European writing and culture. Tennyson's reputation in Anglophone countries is now assured, following a decline in the years after his death. This volume enables us to chart the changes in Tennyson's European reputation during the later 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. "--

American notes for general circulation by Charles Dickens( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Charles Dickens set out for America in 1842 he was the most famous man of his day to travel there -- curious about the revolutionary new civilization that had captured the English imagination. His frank and often humorous descriptions cover everything from his comically wretched sea voyage to his sheer astonishment at the magnificence of the Niagara Falls, while he also visited hospitals, prisons and law courts and found them exemplary. But Dickens's opinion of America as a land ruled by money, partly built on slavery, with a corrupt press and unsavoury manners, provoked a hostile reaction on both sides of the Atlantic. American Notes is an illuminating account of a great writer's revelatory encounter with the New World."--Publisher's description
