The best of Antrobus by Lawrence Durrell ( Book )
6 editions published between 1974 and 2012 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The finest of Lawrence Durrell's classic short stories of diplomatic mischiefDark is the day when culture comes to Sczbog. The capital of Vulgaria, nestled snugly behind the Iron Curtain, has long been devoid of higher thought, and that is the way the men in the British embassy like it. But when the French embassy gives a lecture on literature, it ignites a chain reaction of unwanted cultural exchange, subjecting the King's men to endless nights of Dutch poetry, Japanese theater, and Swiss yodeling. Extricating themselves from this high-minded mess will take a miracle of a most unpolitic kind. This is a typical incident in the long and colorful career of Antrobus, diplomat in his Majesty's service. In these pages, he confronts waltzing ambassadors, half-mad press secretaries, and a gruesome Kurdish circumcision. Through it all, he and his men stay calm, knowing that the surest way to cause a diplomatic incident is to make the mistake of attempting diplomacy

Cautionary verses by Hilaire Belloc ( Book )
22 editions published between 1940 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains all of the old favorites over which Hilaire Belloc's admirers have been chuckling since the end of the 19th century'and the original illustrations by B.T.B. and Nicolas Bentley. It also contains many later verses in the same sly vein. Here you meet again the Horrible Examples (old favorites if you are very fortunate): Matilda, who told lies and was Burned to Death; Sarah Byng, who could not read and was tossed into a Thorny Hedge by a Bull; Lord Henry Chase, who got into a Libel Case; and the curiously instructive beasts who range from microbes to frozen mammoths, all of them inhabiting Mr. Belloc's private zoological park. The republicationof these verses in one handsome volume is cause for rejoicing, especially among wise children, who will judge this edition of Cautionary Verses to be the ideal book for the education and edification of their parents
