8 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henry Adams has been called an indispensable figure in American thought. Although he famously 'took his own life' in the autobiographical Education of Henry Adams, his letters - more intimate and unbuttoned, though hardly unselfconscious - are themselves indispensable for an understanding of the man and his times. This selection, the first based on the authoritative six-volume Letters, represents every major private and public event in Adam's life from 1858-1918 and confirms his reputation as one of the greatest letter writers of his century."--Jacket

Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres by Henry Adams( Book )

5 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: Mont Saint Michel and Chartres is a record not of a literal journey but of a meditative journey across time and space into the medieval imagination. Using the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the two locales as a starting point, Adams breathes life into what others might see merely as monuments of a past civilization. With daring and inventive conceits, Adams looks at the ordinary people, places, and events in the context of the social conventions and systems of thought and belief of the thirteenth century, turning the study of history into a kind of theater. As Raymond Carney discusses in his introduction, Adam's freedom from the European traditions of study lends exuberance-and puckish wit-to his writings
Democracy; and, Esther by Henry Adams( Book )

6 editions published between 1961 and 1965 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Democracy] is one of the best novels ever written about Washington, D.C. Since it was written well over a century ago [1880], I anticipated that it would feel dated. Instead, the novel feels incredibly fresh. From the smart and ambitious young widow taking the political establishment by storm to the idealistic young war veteran lawyer advising her to the scheming and aging senator to the out-of-his-depth president, all of the characters (while obviously drawn on real people of the day) are recognizable and fun. [Inga at Amazon.com] -- [Esther] the comic story of [Esther Dudley] deals with a young, freethinking [New York] socialite [and painter] who falls desperately in love with an Episcopal minister [Stephen Hazard]. The result is a clash of intellects, a confrontation between faith and reason and a battle of the sexes. [Wikipedia.com]
