The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy, gentleman by Laurence Sterne( Book )

Doomed to become the 'sport of fortune' by an interruption at the crucial moment of conception, Tristram Shandy's life lurches from one mishap to another: his nose crushed by the doctor's forceps during birth, christened with the worng name, an unfortunate incident involving a slamming sash window. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel

This collection of short stories contains great works from Crane, including "The Open Boat," "The Desertion," "An Episode of War" and "The Pace of Youth." This edition features a famous introduction by editor Vincent Starrett, who compliments Stephen Crane's now-characteristic realist approach by saying that the author keeps "down the tone where another writer might have attempted 'fine writing' and have been lost."
Gabrielle de Bergerac by Henry James( Book )

2 editions published in 1918 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There was every good reason why her dawning consciousness of M. de Treuil's attentions--although these were little more than projected as yet--should have produced a serious tremor in her heart. It was not that she was aught of a coquette; I honestly believe that there was no latent coquetry in her nature. At all events, whatever she might have become after knowing M. de Treuil, she was no coquette to speak of in her ignorance. Her ignorance of men, in truth, was great. For the Vicomte himself, she had as yet known him only distantly, formally, as a gentleman of rank and fashion; and for others of his quality, she had seen but a small number, and not seen them intimately.-publisher description
Travels in Arabia Deserta by Charles Montagu Doughty( Book )

1 edition published in 1923 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrated by Edy Legrand. The text as abridged and arranged by Edward Garnett, with a prefatory note by M. Garnett, and a general introduction by T. E. Lawrence. The special content of this edition were copyrighted in 1953 by the George Macy Company. TRAVELS IN ARABIA DESERTA has been recognized, almost since its publication in 1888, as one of the greatest travel books in the English language. Doughty spent almost two years traveling, going on pilgrimages, and living with various nomad tribes in northwestern Arabia, then a land almost completely unknown to Europeans and Americans. His account is a thoroughly realized document, a comprehensive understanding and treatment of every aspect of the life of the nomadic Arabs

They call me Carpenter : a tale of the second coming by Upton Sinclair( Book )

2 editions published in 1922 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Sinclair had written very critically of organized religion in his book The Profits of Religion, in this novel he takes a more human approach to the story of Christ. Of course, the Christ character is repulsed by the show of wealth he finds in 1920s California culture, which ultimately contributes to his leaving. In that sense, They Call Me Carpenter fits well into the canon of Upton Sinclair
In the sweet dry and dry by Christopher Morley( Book )

2 editions published in 1919 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
