The Lady of the lake by Walter Scott( Book )

24 editions published between 1853 and 1891 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was the poetic tour de force that turned Walter Scott into an international literary legend. The Lady of the Lake was his best selling poem, taking the literary world by storm, it sold over 25,000 copies in the first 8 months. Queen Victoria was a fan having 38 copies of the poem in her library at Balmoral! The poem had huge influence on the area, Ellen's Isle on Loch Katrine is named after fair Ellen in the poem, and around the world. It was even translated for the Mohican Indians in North America. The poem fell out of fashion in the 20th century although even as late as the 1950s tourist guides in the Trossachs were being paid an extra penny a time if they could recite verses of the poem. Now 200 years on Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park in partnership with the Association of Scottish Literary Studies has republished the poem making it available again for the first time in decades

Contes des fées : suivis des Contes nouveaux, ou, Les fées à la mode by Aulnoy( Book )

16 editions published between 1855 and 1887 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De la fin du règne de Louis XIV à la Révolution française, une exceptionnelle floraison de conteurs et de conteuses s'adonne au conte merveilleux sous toutes ses formes. Mme d'Aulnoy occupe une place remarquable au sein de cette production : initiatrice, dès 1690, de cette vogue qui s'épanouit à la fin du XVIIe siècle, elle constitue également, par l'ampleur et l'originalité de sa production féerique, l'une des représentantes privilégiées de ce genre. Elle illustre en effet la naissance du conte féminin, privilégiant une écriture mondaine et galante souvent empreinte de romanesque. Plus largement, c'est au carrefour des cultures orale et écrite, populaire et littéraire, ancienne et moderne que ces contes puisent leur inspiration, leur esthétique, leur poétique ainsi que leur riche imaginaire. Les amateurs de féerie ne s'y trompèrent pas : ils plébiscitèrent les vingt-cinq contes de fées de Mme d'Aulnoy, dont le succès fut immédiat et durable. Traduits en anglais avant ceux de Perrault, plus souvent réédités, au XVIIIe siècle, que ceux de son confrère, ils furent salués, exploités voire pillés par les conteurs ultérieurs. Mais ils subirent aussi une double dépossession : la relégation aux rayons souvent dépréciés de la littérature enfantine; et leur récupération par une culture populaire peu soucieuse du texte littéral. C'est à une redécouverte qu'invite donc cette édition, offrant l'intégralité des contes et de leurs récits-cadres. Un second volume de Contes nouveaux ou Les Fées à la mode complète le présent ouvrage"--Page 4 of cover
