Buddha's teachings by Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai( )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like all great religions, Buddhism teaches the importance of spiritual, or holy, values. This religion teaches that if a person has a pure mind, everything he does will be pure and decent, and that if he has a pure heart, all happiness will come to him. First published in 1925, Buddha's Teachings was originally edited by Japanese scholars of Buddhism before WWII and distributed widely throughout Japan. The first English edition was published in 1934. The Reverend Dr. Yehan Numata brought out another English edition in 1962, and in 1966, after the establishment of the Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai (Society for the Promotion of Buddhism), Dr. Numata assembled a committee of Buddhist scholars to substantially revise and edit a new English-Japanese edition. Buddha's Teachings has undergone minor revisions and numerous reprintings since. It is now available in forty-one languages, and over 7 million copies have been distributed and placed in hotel rooms in over fifty countries throughout the world

An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge : and other stories by Ambrose Bierce( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A man stood upon a railroad bridge in northern Alabama, looking down into the swift water twenty feet below. The man's hands were behind his back, the wrists bound with a cord. A rope closely encircled his neck. It was attached to a stout cross-timber above his head and the slack fell to the level of his knees. Some loose boards laid upon the sleepers supporting the metals of the railway supplied a footing for him and his executioners--two private soldiers of the Federal army, directed by a sergeant who in civil life may have been a deputy sheriff. From the opening to An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

It is the climactic event in a stirring saga of intelligence, courage and tenacity in the face of extraordinary hardships: temperatures of sixty below zero, howling blizzards, treacherous pack ice, frostbite, dense fogs, and the difficulties navigating across nearly a thousand miles of trackless frozen wasteland

The education of Henry Adams by Henry Adams( Recording )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few works have so firmly established their position in American literature as The education of Henry Adams. As a man of extraordinary gifts and learning and a member of one of the greatest American families, Henry Adams wrote an insightful exploration of himself and the tumultuous age in which he lived. In the words of Van Wyck Brooks, he "revealed a phase of American history with unparalleled boldness and truth." In spite of his illustrious background and Harvard schooling, Henry Adams asserts that his conventional education was defective because it did not prepare him to live in a world transformed by the new science and the new technology. His intention was to write a kind of handbook to prepare "young men, in universities and elsewhere, to be men of the world, equipped for any emergency." The result is what many consider to be one of the finest autobiographies ever written
