Cyrano de Bergerac; a play in five acts by Edmond Rostand( )

17 editions published between 1896 and 2019 in English and held by 1,566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cyrano de Bergerac is a man with the gift of language, but a strong temper and unusually large nose. Cyrano finds himself deep in love with Lady Roxane, but due to his unfortunate appearance refrains from expressing his feelings. When Cyrano learns that Roxane is in love with the handsome suitor Christian, he eagerly assists Christian in wooing Roxane. Cyrano is able to express his own affection for Roxane in eloquent verse and impassioned letters, all under the ruse of Christian's name. In a tale blending comedy, romance, wit, and deception, Cyrano illustrates the beauty and ultimate tragedy of hidden love. This is an unabridged version of French playwright Edmond Rostand's satirical play, translated by Gladys Thomas and Mary F. Guillemard, which premiered in 1897 and was first published in 1898

Cyrano de Bergerac is a play written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand. Although there was a real Cyrano de Bergerac, the play is a fictionalization of his life that follows the broad outlines of it. The play has been translated and performed many times, and is responsible for introducing the word "panache" into the English language. Cyrano (the character) is in fact famed for his panache, and the play ends with him saying "MY PANACHE." just before his death

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published serially in 1868, Wilkie Collins's "The Moonstone" is generally considered the first full length detective novel in the English language. The Moonstone, a large and valuable, yellow diamond, plundered from an Indian temple by Colonel Herncastle during the Siege of Seringapatam, is rumored to bring bad luck to its owner. The Colonel bequeathes the diamond to his niece Rachel Verinder on her eighteenth birthday. At her birthday party, Rachel wears the Moonstone for all to see, later that night the priceless stone is stolen again and an investigation ensues to discover the identity of the thief and recover the jewel. When Sergeant Cuff is brought in to investigate the crime, he soon realizes that no one in Rachel's household is above suspicion. Hailed by T. S. Eliot as "the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels," and described by G. K. Chesterton as "probably the best detective tale in the world," "The Moonstone" is one of Wilkie Collins's most popular works which influenced the development of an entirely new genre of fiction. The Moonstone is a marvellously taut and intricate tale of mystery, in which facts and memory can prove treacherous and not everyone is as they first appear
