25 editions published between 1942 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most influential works of this century, this is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide: the question of living or not living in an absurd universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Camus posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence, and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity.--From publisher description

"The accounts of the trips Albert Camus made to North America (March to May 1946) and South America (June to August 1949) constitute a real travel book; therefore it seemed more logical to publish them in a separate volume. (editor's note from the French edition)" cited following title page
Caligula; a drama in two acts by Albert Camus ( Book )
4 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Caligula was born into an illustrious Roman family. His father was Germanicus, a hugely popular and talented general, who, before his early death, was seen as the natural heir of the reigning Augustus. Caligula was a fond nickname meaning "Little Boots" (his real name was Gaius), given to him by the soldiers in Germanicus' legions who loved to see the young boy in the camps dressed in a military uniform. When the cruel and unpopular Emperor Tiberius (who had succeeded Augustus) died, Caligula was swept into office on a wave of good will. But Caligula turned out to be the most insane Caesar of Rome. His evil deeds surpassed both Tiberius, who reigned immediately before him, or Nero, who ruled shortly after
