Emma by Jane Austen( Book )

61 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emma (1816) is Jane Austen's most characteristic work. Convinced that she understands the world, Emma rules over her invalid father and the small social circle of Highbury with well-meaning tyranny. But she is highly fallible where love is concerned, and her failings there cause many misunderstandings - as well as giving the reader much enjoyment as order is restored. In her new introduction to this edition Terry Castle examines the pleasure given by Emma's reassuringly stable world and by its comedy, and examines the relationships, imagery, and continuing power of Austen's perhaps greatest novel
The poems and fables of John Dryden by John Dryden( Book )

48 editions published between 1958 and 1986 in English and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pickwick papers by David Foulds( Book )

40 editions published between 1962 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pickwick Papers was Dicken's response to his publisher's request for a monthly series of sporting sketches. It became the most famous of all pre-Victorian novels. The central characters, Mr Pickwick and Sam Weller, are as familiar today as they became on publication, and there are over a hundred other speaking parts. The action is set in the late Georgian perid of the writer's earliest youth, drawing on experience and acute observation ranging from the unreformed election at Eatanswill to the horrors of the debtors' prison. Brilliantly comic, it also exposes social and especially legal abuses, as in the notorious trail of Bardell v. Picwick. Dicken's satire is both topical and timeless."--Page 4 of cover

28 editions published between 1971 and 2008 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Northanger Abbey is about the misadventures of Catherine Morland, young, ingenuous, and mettlesome, and an indefatigable reader of Gothic novels. In Lady Susan, Lady Susan has practically imprisoned her daughter Frederica in a boarding school which she hates because Frederica will not marry the man Lady Susan chose for her. In the Watsons, Emma Watson is a disenfranchised outsider in her family. Sanditon sketches a restless world of speculation and real estate as Mr. Parker devotes himself to transforming his quiet village into a bustling resort for the wealthy
Annals of the parish, or, The chronicle of Dalmailing during the ministry of the Rev. Micah Balwhidder, written by himself by John Galt( Book )

29 editions published between 1911 and 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is narrated by the Reverend Micah Balwhidder, a Presbyterian minister in the Ayrshire town of Dalmailing, and covers the years 1760 to 1810, the period of Robert Burns and the Industrial Revolution, when the economic and moral shape of Scottish life was changing in ways both explicit and invisible. The novel charts all this: the work of smugglers at Troon, new births in the parish, old deaths, the efforts of the press-gangs, the rise of the local economy, the business of {u2018}cadgers by day and excisemen by night{u2019}, the opening of a new dance school at Irville, {u2018}run by Mr Macskipnish{u2019}, visits to Glasgow and Edinburgh, the day of the country fair, described with a rare vernacular beauty. It{u2019}s a precursor to Dickens in terms of detail and to Flaubert in terms of style. --www.list.co.uk

When Mr. Dashwood dies, he must leave the bulk of his estate to the son by his first marriage, which leaves his second wife and three daughters (Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret) in straitened circumstances. They are taken in by a kindly cousin, but their lack of fortune affects the marriageability of both practical Elinor and romantic Marianne. When Elinor forms an attachment for the wealthy Edward Ferrars, his family disapproves and separates them. And though Mrs. Jennings tries to match the worthy (and rich) Colonel Brandon to her, Marianne finds the dashing and fiery Willoughby more to her taste. Both relationships are sorely tried. But this is a romance, and through the hardships and heartbreak, true love and a happy ending will find their way for both the sister who is all sense and the one who is all sensibility. - Publisher
