27 editions published between 1877 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Miriam Squier (1836-1914), an actress turned journalist who eventually became a powerful figure in American publishing, married publisher Frank Leslie in 1874. In 1877, the couple traveled to California, and Mrs. Leslie recorded details of their luxurious transcontinental rail trip. California: a pleasure trip from Gotham to the Golden Gate (1877) chronicles the scenes they passed en route, as well as San Francisco's welcome for the visiting Eastern notables. Her account gives special attention to that city's Chinatown as well as the attractions of Los Angeles and Yosemite. On the return journey, Leslie pictures the desolation of the mining town of Virginia City, Nevada, and the prosperity and progress of Salt Lake City, where she interviewed Brigham Young. The editor's introduction provides details of the attacks brought by publication of the book, with critics exposing Mrs. Leslie's illegitimate birth and complicated marital career
Travels in Central America : including accounts of some regions unexplored since the conquest by Arthur Morelet( Book )

12 editions published in 1871 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "demi-monde" : a satire on society by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

7 editions published between 1858 and 1987 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The play deals with the way that prostitution at that time threatened the institution of marriage. The demi-monde was the world occupied by elite men and the women who entertained them and whom they kept, the pleasure-loving and dangerous world Dumas immortalized in the 1848 novel La Dame aux Camélias and its many adaptations. Demimondaine became a synonym for a courtesan or a prostitute who moved in these circles -- or for a woman of social standing with the power to thumb her nose at convention and throw herself into the hedonistic nightlife. A woman who made that choice would soon find her social status lost, as she became "déclassée"
