The spy by James Fenimore Cooper ( Book )
646 editions published between 1821 and 2010 in 16 languages and held by 3,464 libraries worldwide
Inspired by accusations of venality leveled at the men who captured Major Andre (Benedict Arnold's co-conspirator, executed for espionage in 1780), Cooper's novel centers on Harry Birch, a common man wrongly suspected by well-born Patriots of being a spy for the British. Even George Washington, who supports Birch, misreads the man, and when Washington offers him payment for information vital to the Patriot's cause, Birch scorns the money and asserts that his action were motivated not by financial reward, but by his devotion to the fight for independence. A historical adventure tale reminiscent of Sir Walter Scott's Waverley novels, The Spy is also a parable of the American experience, a reminder that the nation's survival, like its Revolution, depends on judging people by their actions, not their class or reputations.

"The Crater" was originally published in 1847 and is one of the first castaway books after Robinson Crusoe. It was the basis for Jules Verne"s "The Mysterious Island" and also an early book about a utopia. This book is one of Cooper's last works, and one of his most impressive. A wealth of scientific and technological information is displayed in both the maritime exploits of the earlier portion and the construction of the colony in the second half of the book, and is impressive evidence of Cooper's mastery of nineteenth century discoveries. Iin his novels of social criticism, such as "The Crater," Cooper created memorable characters and events that bear witness to his perceptive intellect and observing eye.
The water-witch; or, The skimmer of the seas by James Fenimore Cooper ( Book )
207 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 891 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: James Fenimore Cooper (1789 - 1851), the son of a wealthy, landowning Judge William Cooper was born in Burlington, New Jersey. "It was a bold attempt to lay the scene of a work like this on the coast of America. We have had our Buccaneers on the water, and our Witches on the land, but we believe this is the first occasion on which the rule has been reversed." "The facts of this country are all so recent, and so familiar, that every innovation on them, by means of the imagination, is coldly received, if not absolutely frowned upon. Perhaps it would have been safer to have written a work of this character without a reference to any particular locality. The few local allusions that were introduced are not essential to the plot, and might have been dispensed with without lessening the interest of the tale." "This is probably the most imaginative book every written by the author. Its fault is in blending too much of the real with the purely ideal." "This book, originally written in Italy, and first printed (in English) in Germany. To the last circumstance probably owes the great number of typographical errors that are to be found in it. The American compositor, however, quite likely conceiving that he had a right to correct the blunders of a foreigner, has taken the law into his own hands, and exercised a sovereign power over our labors. That our good old-fashioned mode of spelling should receive the modern improvements was, perhaps, unavoidable; but surely, we never spelt "coamings" (of a hatch), "combings;" "rul-lock," "oar-lock" or "row-lock;" or made many other similar "longshore" blunders that are to be found in original edition of this book." Care has been taken to do ourselves justice in these particulars, and we think that this book is more improved, in these respects than any other work that has passed through our hands.
