The moonstone by Wilkie Collins ( Book )
7 editions published between 1944 and 1948 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Called "the first and greatest of English detective novels" by T.S.Eliot, The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense. A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, Looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted. Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butter, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted scientist -- each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together

The old curiosity shop by Charles Dickens ( Book )
4 editions published between 1941 and 1968 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of Little Nell, the beautiful child thrown into a shadowy, terrifying world, seems to belong less to the history of the Victorian novel than to folklore, fairy tale, or myth. The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset by Dickens's creation of a dazzling contemporary world inhabited by some of his most brilliantly drawn characters-the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid known as the "Marchioness"; the mannish lawyer Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten mother-in-law; and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic energy makes a vivid counterpoint to Nell's purity

The diary of Samuel Pepys by Samuel Pepys ( Book )
2 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""The diary which Samuel Pepys kept from January 1660 to May 1669...is one of our greatest historical records and...a major work of English literature," writes the renowned historian Paul Johnson. A witness to the coronation of Charles II, the Great Plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666, Pepys chronicled the events of his day. Originally written in a cryptic shorthand, Pepys's diary provides an astonishingly frank and diverting account of political intrigues and naval, church, and cultural affairs, as well as a quotidian journal of daily life in London during the Restoration."--BOOK JACKET
The brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky ( Book )
6 editions published between 1943 and 1946 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dostoyevsky's famous and well-regarded 1880 novel, The Brothers Karamazov, is a tale of bitter family rivalries. Three brothers live in a small, typical Russian town. Their father, a selfish, cunning, lascivious figure with little love for them, tries to maintain his control over them and anyone who comes within his orbit. The roots of dissent, unhappiness, hope, ambition and desire run deep in this community as everywhere, and Dostoyevsky brings them to the fore with an unexpected death
