The great sixteenth-century poet vividly imagines the end of the First Crusade, led by Godfrey of Bouillon, and the taking of Jerusalem.

Candide, or, Optimism : a new translation, backgrounds, criticism by Voltaire( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A flamboyant and controversial personality of enormous wit and intelligence, Voltaire remains one of the most influential figures of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. Candide, his masterpiece, is a brilliant satire of the theory that our world is "the best of all possible worlds." The book traces the picaresque adventures of the guileless Candide, who is forced into the army, flogged, shipwrecked, betrayed, robbed, separated from his beloved Cunegonde, tortured by the Inquisition, et cetera, all without losing his resilience and will to live and pursue a happy life." "This Modern Library edition, published to celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of Random House, is a facsimile of the first book ever released under the Random House colophon. It includes the timeless illustrations by Rockwell Kent, a twentieth-century artist whose wit and genius serve as a counterpart and compliment to Voltaire's."--Jacket

Fascinated with witches and magic since his childhood, Scott jumped at the idea of his son-in-law to write a small volume about the subject at his home in Abbotsford shortly after his first paralytic stroke in February of 1830. Scott's skepticism about the supernatural divided his audience and critics, but made the work a great commercial success
