Most widely held works by W. W Robson
The jungle books by Rudyard Kipling( )
21 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Jungle Books, regarded as classic stories told by an adult to children and best known for the "Mowgli" series, also constitutes a complex literary work of art in which the whole of Kipling's philosophy of life is expressed in miniature. The stories, a mixture of fantasy, myth and magic, are underpinned by Kipling's abiding preoccupation with the theme of self-discovery and the nature of the "Law."
The hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle( Book )
26 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Hond of the Baskervilles is the tale of an incient curse suddenly given a terrifying modern application. The grey towers of Baskerville Hall and the wild open country of Dartmoor hold many secrets for Holmes and Watson to unravel. The detective is contemptuous of supernatural manifestations, but the reader will remain perpetually haunted by the hound from the moor" --Cover, p. 4

The second jungle book by Rudyard Kipling( Book )

For Rudyard Kipling, the jungle was at once a fierce and an infinitely gentle place. The Noah's Ark assortment of animal characters that populate his stories are endowed with personality and temperament; their human counterparts are not difficult to recognize. Even Mowgli, the wolf-child, is secondary to the magnetism and allure of the jungle and its exotic creatures
