Travels of William Bartram by William Bartram( Book )

32 editions published between 1928 and 2007 in English and held by 1,620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The records kept by William Bartram of his journeys through the Southern colonies in the 18th century constitute a classic of American natural history. These records have already been the subject of close literary study and acclaim as a source of some of Wordsworth's and Coleridge's finest imagery. Here, however, is the first examination and interpretation of the Travels conducted expressly from the naturalist's point of view. Mr. Harper has followed nearly all the turnings of Bartram's trails through the Southeast, identifying his numerous plants and animals, locating his Indian villages, and providing concise biographical information for the major and minor figures that move through the pages. New illustrations, along with those of 1791, show buildings, natural scenes, and the plant and animal life under discussion

Selected poetry by William Wordsworth( Book )

11 editions published in 1950 in English and Undetermined and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wordsworth's verse declares a belief in the power of poetry to teach by appealing to the imagination and to the 'grand elementary principle of pleasure, by which man knows, and feels, and lives, and moves'. His unique relationship with the poet and political activist Samuel Taylor Coleridge, formed in the political and social ferment of the 1790s, produced a revolution in literature, resulting in the joint volume, Lyrical Ballads (1798-1805) - a landmark in the history of English Romanticism. This selection, chosen from the Oxford Authors critical edition, includes all Wordsworth's finest lyrics, and a large sample of The Prelude (1805), his extraordinary autobiographical poem in blank verse and the first truly great achievement of a new era in English poetry
