Most widely held works by Philip Sidney
The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia (the old Arcadia) by Philip Sidney ( Book )
426 editions published between 1588 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 5,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Basilus, a foolish old duke, consults an oracle as he imperiously wishes to know the future, but he is less than pleased with what he learns. To escape the oracle's horrific prophecies about his family and kingdom he withdraws into pastoral retreat with his wife and two daughters. When a pair of wandering princes fall in love with the princesses and adopt disguises to gain access to them, all manner of complications, both comic and serious, ensue. Part-pastoral romance, part-heroic epic, Sidney's long narrative work was hugely popular for centuries after its first publication in 1593, inspiring two sequels and countless imitations, and contributing greatly to the development of the novel

Silver poets of the sixteenth century by Gerald Bullett ( Book )
22 editions published between 1947 and 2009 in English and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"English poetry, after the splendid summer sun of Chaucer had set, entered early into a rather wintry phase, in which a stirring of folk poetry and Skelton's odd 'flytings and vituperations' were almost the only relief ... It was a time of welcome renewal--of language, new fancies, new conceits--a looking into the face of nature. New learning, new culture were abroad; freshness touched the sonnets of Wyatt, Sidney, Howard and Ralegh as they penned and composed this excitingly new literary form. In this garden of a world, the poets turned to love as their theme and played upon it with virtuosity--from lines of great artistry and verbal felicity to poems of deep and true feeling."
