Most widely held works by James George Frazer
The golden bough a study in magic and religion by James George Frazer( Book )
868 editions published between 1890 and 2014 in 20 languages and held by 13,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A classic study of the beliefs and institutions of mankind, and the progress through magic and religion to scientific thought, The Golden Bough has a unique status in modern anthropology and literature. First published in 1890, The Golden Bough was eventually issued in a twelve-volume edition (1906-15) which was abridged in 1922 by the author and his wife. That abridgement has never been reconsidered for a modern audience. In it some of the more controversial passages were dropped, including Frazer's daring speculations on the Crucifixion of Christ

Ovid's Fasti by Ovid( Book )
62 editions published between 1931 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 1,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BCE-17 CE), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus and was banished to the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. One of his few surviving works, the Fasti is a poetic treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half. It is believed that Ovid left the Fasti incomplete when he was exiled to Tomis

Totemism and exogamy, a treatise on certain early forms of superstition and society by James George Frazer( Book )
65 editions published between 1910 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This classic four-volume series -from a pioneering ethnographer, first published in 1910- remains a foundational work of comparative mythology and religion for scholars and armchair anthropologists alike. Exploring the interconnections between myth and ritual in how and whom we may marry -as group marriage gave way to individual marriage- questions about religion and social structure became intertwined. In any case, this is a fascinating look at the social underpinnings common to all peoples around the globe. Volume 1 features a reprint of Frazer's groundbreaking 1887 work Totemism - covering the religious side of totemism ; individual totems ; sex totems ; and more -as well as additional hard-to-find essays by the author. Then begins Frazer's ethnographic survey of totemism, here covering totemism in Australia. Volume II continues Frazer's ethnographic survey of totemism, here covering totemism in the South Pacific, India and Africa. Volume III continues Frazer's ethnographic survey of totemism, here covering totemism in the United States, Canada and Central and South America, with a special emphasis on the guardian spirits and secret societies of American Indian tribes. Volume IV includes the author's summary and conclusion, errata, maps, and the index to the full work -- 4e de couverture
