The Sir Roger de Coverley papers by Joseph Addison( Book )

430 editions published between 1850 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 4,843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Purportedly "an English squire of Queen Anne's reign, Sir Roger exemplified the values of an old country gentleman, and was portrayed as lovable but somewhat ridiculous ('rather beloved than esteemed, ' Spectator no. 2), making his Tory politics seem harmless but silly. He was said to be the grandson of the man who invented the English country dance."--Wikipedia.com

Cato : a tragedy, and selected essays by Joseph Addison( Book )

616 editions published between 1700 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First staged in 1713, Joseph Addison's Cato: A Tragedy inspired many in the eighteenth century with its portrayal of Roman senator Cato the Younger's (95-46 B.C.) willingness to take his own life rather than to submit to the tyrannical rule of Julius Caesar. Set in North Africa, the play depicts the final hours of Cato's resistance to Caesar. George Washington found Cato such a powerful statement of liberty, honor, virtue, and patriotism that he had it performed for his men in Valley Forge during the American Revolution." "Despite Cato's enormous success, Addison was perhaps best known as an essayist. This volume brings together Addison's dramatic masterpiece along with a selection of his essays that are directly related to the play and that develop its key themes."--Jacket
