Most widely held works by Bernard Guilbert Guerney
The romance of Leonardo da Vinci by Dmitry Sergeyevich Merezhkovsky( Book )

34 editions published between 1928 and 2009 in English and held by 2,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Merezhkovsky portrays Leonardo as a man of many facets, some of which may be grouped as pagan, some of which are Christian. Leonardo was filled with conflict and doubts. This book is filled with historical and semi-historical information. It is a historical novel. This book provided much of the inspiration for the current best selling book and block-buster movie "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown."--Amazon
Dead souls by Nikolaĭ Vasilʹevich Gogolʹ( Book )

18 editions published between 1923 and 1997 in English and held by 1,436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gogol's 1842 novel Dead Souls, a comic masterpiece about a mysterious con man and his grotesque victims, is one of the major works of Russian literature. It was translated into English in 1942 by Bernard Guilbert Guerney; the translation was hailed by Vladimir Nabokov as "an extraordinarily fine piece of work" and is still considered the best translation of Dead Souls ever published. Long out of print, the Guerney translation of Dead Souls is now reissued. The text has been made more faithful to Gogol's original by removing passages that Guerney inserted from earlier drafts of Dead Souls. The text is accompanied by Susanne Fusso's introduction and by appendixes that present excerpts from Guerney's translations of other drafts of Gogol's work and letters Gogol wrote around the time of the writing and publication of Dead Souls

Story of passion and family conflict set in 19th century upper-class Russia, in which the wife of an aristocrat falls in love with a dashing cavalry officer. Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. States Leo Tolstoy in his great modern novel of an adulterous affair set against the backdrop of Moscow and St. Petersburg high society in the later half of the nineteenth century. A sophisticated woman who is respectably married to a government bureaucrat, Anna begins a passionate, all-consuming involvement with a rich army officer. Refusing to conduct a discreet affair, she scandalizes society by abandoning both her husband and her young son for Count Vronsky--with tragic consequences. Running parallel is the story of the courtship and marriage of Konstantin Levin (the melancholy nobleman who is Tolstoy's stand-in) and Princess Kitty Shcherbatsky
