The alchemist by Ben Jonson( Book )

14 editions published between 1947 and 1987 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Alchemist is a sublimely accomplished satirical farce about dreams of self-refinement: people want to transform themselves into something nobler, richer, more powerful, and more virile just as base metal was touted to be transformed into gold in the alchemical process. First performed in 1610 and set in the same contemporary London time period, the plot revolves around scheming con artists during their master's absence from the house. Face, Subtle and Doll Common dupe a series of "customers" whose desire for aggrandizement leads them to believe in the existence of the fabled "Philosopher's Stone". As their equipment boils over and blows up in the offstage kitchen, so their plot heats up and is exploded by the skeptical Surly and the arrival of their master who quietly pockets their proceeds and marries the rich widow to boot. The play is generally considered Ben Jonson's best comedy, deftly exposing human foible and foolishness to mockery and has continued to thrive in stage productions."--Publisher's description

Blake records supplement : being new materials relating to the life of William Blake discovered since the publication of Blake records (1969) by G. E Bentley( Book )

27 editions published between 1969 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blake Records Supplement is a continuation of Blake Records (Clarendon Press, 1969), which attempted to collect and publish every reference made to William Blake by his contemporaries. The new book incorporates the wealth of information that has been found since 1969 in letters, advertisements, essays and journals, including references to Blake's musical ability, further evidence of R.H. Cromek's duplicity in dealing with the illustrations for Blair's Grave, letters from Blake's wife, new evidence about his trial for sedition, and comments about his purported madness. Together, the works provide the foundation for all we know about the life of the poet and artist
