84 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... 'Zuleika Dobson' is a very special sort of book ... for which ... one must cultivate a taste. It is a book which it is utterly impossible to compare with any other book ... In no other book will you find a beautiful young lady who is at the same time a professional magician and the granddaughter of the Warden of Judas College, Oxford; in no other book will you find the entire student body of a great university falling in love with a single [woman] and taking such measures to make its collective passion visible; in no other book will you find an American (he is a Rhodes Scholar) named Abimelech V. Oover ... [and] in no other book will you find the author introducing himself as a name character ..."

Seven men by Max Beerbohm( Book )

61 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Seven Men the English caricaturist and critic Max Beerbohm turns his comic searchlight upon the fantastic fin de siecle world of the 1890s - the age of Oscar Wilde, Aubrey Beardsley, and the young Yeats, as well as of Beerbohm's own first success. In a series of luminous prose sketches, Beerbohm captures the likes of Enoch Soames, only begetter of the neglected poetic masterwork Fungoids; Maltby and Braxton, two fashionable novelists caught in a bitter rivalry; and "Savonarola" Brown, author of a truly incredible tragedy encompassing the entire Italian Renaissance. An ingenious and enduring work of humorous writing, Seven Men is also a shrewdly perceptive, heartfelt homage to the eccentric character of a bygone age."--Jacket

The editors of this legendary and hilarious anthology write: "It would seem at a hasty glance that to make an anthology of Bad Verse is on the whole a simple matter ... On the contrary ...

Here one finds the best of the worst of the greatest English poets, with an index ("Manure, adjudged a fit subject for the Muse, page 91") that is itself an inspired work of folly. Annotation.
