Thirteen men by Tiffany Thayer( Book )

6 editions published between 1930 and 1948 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most murder-story writers content themselves with two or three violent deaths in one book. Not so author Thayer: his hero kills 39 people. But Thirteen Men is not a detective story, for the murders are all committed and solved in the first chapter. The rest of the book takes up the life-story of each of the twelve jurors in the murder trial, starting with each man's birth and ending with his opening the mailed summons for jury duty. The sexual life of his jurymen is as varied as their nationalities, and their author tells much

The memoirs of Jacques Casanova de Seingalt by Giacomo Casanova( Book )

3 editions published in 1938 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Giacomo Girolamo Casanova de Seingalt was an Italian adventurer and author from the Republic of Venice. His autobiography is regarded as one of the most authentic sources of the customs and norms of European social life during the 18th century. He was so famous as a womanizer that his name remains synonymous with the art of seduction. He associated with European royalty, popes and cardinals, along with luminaries such as Voltaire, Goethe and Mozart. He spent his last years in Bohemia as a librarian in Count Waldstein's household, where he also wrote the story of his life. As noted in the introduction by Arthur Symons, these memoirs, " ... are the history of a unique life, a unique personality, one of the greatest of autobiographies; as a record of adventures, they are more entertaining than Gil Blas, or Monte Cristo, or any of the imaginary travels, and escapes, and masquerades in life, which have been written in imitation of them."
