Candide, or, Optimism : a new translation, backgrounds, criticism by Voltaire( Book )

21 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a gentle man who, though pummeled and slapped in every direction by fate, clings desperately to the belief that he lives in "the best of all possible worlds." On the surface a witty, bantering tale, this eighteenth-century classic is actually a savage, satiric thrust at the philosophical optimism that proclaims that all disaster and human suffering is part of a benevolent cosmic plan
The three musketeers by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

18 editions published between 1969 and 2004 in English and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the greatest "cloak and sword" story ever written, The Three Musketeers, first published ion 1844, is a tale for all time. Pitting the heroic young dʹArtagnan and his noble compatriots, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis against the master of intrigue, Cardinal Richelieu, and the quintessential wicked woman, Lady de Winter, Alexandre Dumas has created an enchanted France of swordplay, schemes and assignations. The era and the characters are based on historical fact, but the glittering romance and fast-paced action spring from a great writerʹs incomparable imagination. From the perilous retrieval of the queens gift to her lover in time to foil Rechelieuʹs plot to the melodramatic revelation of Lady de Winterʹs true identity, The Three Musketeers is the unchallenged archetype for literary romance and a perennial delight for generations of readers. -- Back cover
