The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio( Book )

14 editions published between 1930 and 1972 in English and held by 1,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the summer of 1348, with the plague ravaging Florence, ten young men and women take refuge in the countryside, where they entertain themselves with tales of love, death, and corruption, featuring a host of characters, from lascivious clergymen and mad kings to devious lovers and false miracle-makers. Named after the Greek for "ten days," Boccaccio's book of stories draws on ancient mythology, contemporary history, and everyday life, and has influenced the work of myriad writers who came after him. J.G. Nichols's new translation, faithful to the original but rendered in eminently readable modern English, captures the timeless humor of one of the great classics of European literature. A brilliant new translation of the work that Herman Hesse called 'the first great masterpiece of European storytelling.'"--Publisher's website

"Rockwell Kent is one of America's most famous graphic artists. Also an avid traveler, Kent was especially fascinated by remote Arctic lands and stayed for extended periods of time to paint, write, and interact with the local inhabitants. Between 1918 and 1935, he wrote and illustrated several popular books about his travels including Voyaging. Originally published in 1924, it tells the engaging story of Kent's sailing voyage to Tierra del Fuego. Kent is a charming writer and keen observer of both the land and its people. The book is beautifully and generously illustrated with Kent's distinctive woodcuts."--Jacket
