Sir Walter Scott : a bibliographical history, 1796-1832 by William B Todd( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Bibliography of Sir Walter Scott describes not only the variants in his novels and verse, as published in English during his lifetime, but extends to his lesser known activities as advocate and sheriff, antiquarian, biographer, editor, historian, reviewer, casual commentator from his Abbotsford estate, and constant contributor to the work of his friends and associates." "Apart from what is essentially Scott, this bibliography further discloses his often anonymous reappearance in 164 anthologies and again, now indirectly, in countless printings deriving from his original work - in shabby chapbooks, grand suites of illustrations, operas, plays, and endless reams of sheet music. After 160 years, interest in Scott continues as strong as ever. With releases of major motion pictures based on his novels and new editions of his works being republished around the world, Sir Walter's ability to enthrall remains undiminished."--Jacket

An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations by Adam Smith( Book )

32 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1776, the year in which the American Revolution officially began, Smith's Wealth of Nations sparked a revolution of its own. In it Smith analyzes the major elements of political economy, from market pricing and the division of labor to monetary, tax, trade, and other government policies that affect economic behavior. Throughout he offers seminal arguments for free trade, free markets, and limited government. Criticizing mercantilists who sought to use the state to increase their nations' supply of precious metals, Smith points out that a nation's wealth should be measured by the well-being of its people. Prosperity in turn requires voluntary exchange of goods in a peaceful, well-ordered market. How to establish and maintain such markets? For Smith the answer lay in man's social instincts, which government may encourage by upholding social standards of decency, honesty, and virtue, but which government undermines when it unduly interferes with the intrinsically private functions of production and exchange. Social and economic order arise from the natural desires to better one's (and one's family's) lot and to gain the praise and avoid the censure of one's neighbors and business associates. Individuals behave decently and honestly because it gives them a clear conscience as well as the good reputation necessary for public approbation and sustained, profitable business relations

The writings and speeches of Edmund Burke by Edmund Burke( Book )

26 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume continues the story of Burke and the affairs of the East India Company which was begun in Volume V (OUP 1981, GBP70.00, 0-19-822417-6). By 1786, Burke had fixed on Warren Hastings as the main culprit for the abuses that seemed to him so glaring. He greeted Hastings's return to Britain with a parliamentary attack which culminated in a trial by impeachment in the House of Lords. This was to be one of Burke's major preoccupations for the rest of his life. The material presented in this volume covers two years of proceedings in the House of Commons and the first session of the trial in the Lords. Its highlights are two great set-piece speeches delivered to the Commons, which can be reconstructed from manuscript material as well as from contemporary reports; and the four-day oration with which Burke opened the prosecution before the Lords: for this a complete verbatim shorthand record exists. The material in these and other speeches is not only central to an understanding of Burke and India, but to his moral and political thought as a whole in the years immediately before the outbreak of the French Revolution
