Diary of a pilgrimage : and six essays by Jerome K Jerome( )

79 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in English and German and held by 2,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The passion play at Oberammergau is unique, and to many people a journey to see it would be something of a pilgrimage. Such a journey is the subject of this comic novel, very much in the style of Jerome's big success, Three Men in a Boat. The journey is made by rail, and the humour is on such subjects as the obscurity of railway timetables." -- geocities.com

214 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having survived the hazards of the great English waterway - plus the outrageous behaviour of that dog - in their debut novel, THREE MEN IN A BOAT, we re-join our heroes George, Harris and Jerome on a bicycle tour through the Black Forest. What is a bummel, you may ask? It is a journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started ... As the trio encounters misadventures involving transport, the weather, and the usually tranquil locals, chaos and mayhem again reign supreme

Clocks by Jerome K Jerome( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are two kinds of clocks. There is the clock that is always wrong, and that knows it is wrong, and glories in it; and there is the clock that is always right--except when you rely upon it, and then it is more wrong than you would think a clock could be in a civilized country. I remember a clock of this latter type, that we had in the house when I was a boy, routing us all up at three o'clock one winter's morning. We had finished breakfast at ten minutes to four, and I got to school a little after five, and sat down on the step outside and cried, because I thought the world had come to an end; everything was so death-like!

Three men in a boat ; Three men on the bummel by Jerome K Jerome( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three Men in a Boat describes a comic expedition up the Thames to Oxford, depicted with irresistibly genial humour by 'J'. As the fashionable late-1880s steam-launches of river swells encounter the hired skiffs of city clerks, J̀' presents a medley of social vignettes, farcical incidents, descriptions of river fashions, and reflections on the river's history. His gently skewed vision of a world in which things continually turn out rather differently than expected is continued in Three Men on the Bummel. The now middle-aged friends embark on a cycling tour in the Black Forest, and the new bicycling craze affords Jerome the opportunity for a light-hearted scrutiny of German social customs at a time of increasing preoccupation with a country he loved. This double-volume edition places two of the most popular works in English literature in the light of Jerome's varied career, illuminating their social context and enduring appeal."--BOOK JACKET
