43 editions published between 1947 and 1985 in English and held by 2,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Portable Chekhov presents twenty-eight of Chekhov's best stories, chosen as particularly representative of his many-sided portrayal of the human comedy - including "The Kiss", "The Darling", and "In theTavine" - as well as two complete plays: The Boor, an example of Chekhov's earlier dramatic work, and The Cherry Orchard, his last and finest play. In addition, this volume includes a selection of letters, candidly revealing of Chekhov's impassioned convictions on life and art, his high aspirations, his marriage, and his omnipresent compassion" -- publisher website (August 2007)

It is distinguished for its fidelity to the original, for its sensitive poetic renderings and its spirited scholarship.

The translation of the lyrics and ballads, the narrative poems, folk tales and short stories capture all the enchantment of Pushkin's art. This 896-page undertaking was carried out under the editorial supervision of Avrahm Yarmolinsky, who contributes a biographical and interpretative introduction which tells the romantic story of Russia's idolized poet. -- From publisher's description

The brothers Karamazov : a novel in four parts with epilogue by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

16 editions published between 1933 and 1979 in English and German and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Brothers Karamazov' is a passionate philosophical novel set in 19th century Russia, that enters deeply into the ethical debates of God, free will and morality. It is a spiritual drama of moral struggles concerning faith, doubt, and reason, set against a modernizing Russia. Karamazov is a towering masterpiece of literature, philosophy, psychology, and religion. It tells the story of intellectual Ivan, sensual Dmitri, and idealistic Alyosha Karamazov, who collide in the wake of their despicable father's brutal murder. Into the framework of the story Dostoevsky poured all of his deepest concerns - the origin of evil, the nature of freedom, the craving for meaning and, most importantly, whether God exists. The novel is famous for three chapters that may be ranked among the greatest pages of Western literature. "Rebellion" and "The Grand Inquisitor" present what many have considered the strongest arguments ever formulated against the existence of God, while "The Devil" brilliantly portrays the banality of evil. Ultimately, Dostoevsky believes that Christ-like love prevails. But does he prove it? A rich, moving exploration of the critical questions of human existence, 'The Brothers Karamazov' powerfully challenges all readers to reevaluate the world and their place in it. - Amazon (summary for another edition of this title)
