The Pickwick papers by Charles Dickens( Book )

50 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in English and held by 938 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

Annals of the parish, or, The chronicle of Dalmailing during the ministry of the Rev. Micah Balwhidder, written by himself by John Galt( Book )

28 editions published between 1967 and 1986 in English and held by 524 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
