The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins( Book )

9 editions published between 1944 and 1948 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called "the first and greatest of English detective novels" by T.S. Eliot, The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense. A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, Looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted. Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butter, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted scientist -- each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together

The old curiosity shop by Charles Dickens( Book )

4 editions published between 1941 and 1968 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, seems to belong less to the history of the Victorian novel than to folklore, fairy tale, or myth. The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset by Dickens's creation of a dazzling contemporary world inhabited by some of his most brilliantly drawn characters-the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid known as the "Marchioness"; the mannish lawyer Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten mother-in-law; and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic energy makes a vivid counterpoint to Nell's purity
The confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

4 editions published between 1955 and 1980 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rousseau was the first man to expose himself candidly to the public gaze. There is a candor of the spirit; there is a candor of the tongue; there is a candor of the times. Rousseau's Confessions has all three! We have chosen to reprint a remarkably fine version in English, published in 1783 and 1790, which reveals the undertones and the overtones of Rousseau's theme. Originally published within a year of the appearance of the French editions, this translation omitted certain passages which would have been deemed offensive -- and, in fact, were. So we got A.S.B. Glover to restore the omitted passages, and thus provide us with the text of an English translation of Rousseau's Confessions more faithful than any of the new translations, both in letter and in spirit. You will be able to look at the faces of the people whom Rousseau met, to study the places where Rousseau lived, to move through the tapestry of Rousseau's times as Rousseau himself tells you what he was doing during those times. - Publisher

3 editions published between 1943 and 1945 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dostoyevsky's famous and well-regarded 1880 novel, The Brothers Karamazov, is a tale of bitter family rivalries. Three brothers live in a small, typical Russian town. Their father, a selfish, cunning, lascivious figure with little love for them, tries to maintain his control over them and anyone who comes within his orbit. The roots of dissent, unhappiness, hope, ambition and desire run deep in this community as everywhere, and Dostoyevsky brings them to the fore with an unexpected death
