Abraham Lincoln : the observations of John G. Nicolay and John Hay by Michael Burlingame( )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1890 Abraham Lincoln's two main White House secretaries, John G. Nicolay and John Hay, published the ten-volume biography Abraham Lincoln: A History. Although the authors witnessed the daily events occurring within the executive mansion and the national Capitol, their lengthy biography is more a recounting of the Civil War era than a study of Lincoln's life. Editor Michael Burlingame sifted through the original forty-seven-hundred-page work and selected only the personal observations of the secretaries during the Lincoln presidency, placing ten excerpts in c

Democracy; an American novel by Henry Adams( Book )

34 editions published between 1880 and 1970 in English and French and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the best novels ever written about Washington, D.C. Since it was written well over a century ago [1880], I anticipated that it would feel dated. Instead, the novel feels incredibly fresh. From the smart and ambitious young widow taking the political establishment by storm to the idealistic young war veteran lawyer advising her to the scheming and aging senator to the out-of-his-depth president, all of the characters (while obviously drawn on real people of the day) are recognizable and fun. --Inga at Amazon.com

The bread-winners by John Hay( Book )

15 editions published between 1883 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1883 novel about the struggle between labor and industry focuses on the 1877 railway strike. Its plot comes down squarely in favor of the latter—causing a sensation upon its anonymous publication. Many names were advanced as possible authors, but circumstantial evidence, as well as handwriting analysis, conclusively pointed to Hay, who until his death steadfastly denied authorship

Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám by Omar Khayyam( Book )

17 editions published between 1898 and 1926 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the eleventh century, in Persia, there lived a mathematician named Ghiyathuddin Abulfath Omar bin Ibrahim al-Khayyami--or, Omar, son of Abraham, the tent-maker. Omar wrote poetry, and while his rhymes received little attention in their day, they were rediscovered and translated into beautiful English--more than seven centuries later--by a gentleman and scholar named Edward FitzGerald. It was a meeting of minds, a great collaboration of the past and the present, and FitzGerald's rendition of those passionate verses has become one of the best loved poem cycles in the English language. With their concern for the here and now, as opposed to the hereafter, Omar Khayyam's quatrains are as romantic today as they were hundreds of years ago; they are a tribute to the power of one moment's pleasure over a lifetime of sorrow, of desire over the vicissitudes of time. Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, presented here with Edward FitzGerald's original preface, is truly a classic, and it will stand forever as one of our finest monuments to love
