Most widely held works by John Wesley Jarvis
The power of faith : exemplified in the life and writings of the late Mrs. Isabella Graham, of New-York by Isabella Graham( Book )

5 editions published between 1816 and 1819 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the Navy of the United States of America by James Fenimore Cooper( Book )

2 editions published between 1839 and 1854 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cooper first published his history in multiple volumes in 1838, but later pared it down to this one-volume version. Tales of buccaneers, colonial sea fights, the American Revolution, the Quasi-War with France, and the War of 1812 are all vividly recounted, and the original engravings have been retained to enhance the presentation of this new edition. No mere literary curiosity, the work deserves the attention of serious students of the period, both for its factual exposition and for the perspective Cooper brings to occurrences chronologically close to him. Like many historians, his interpretation of the facts was not accepted by all, and in his preface Cooper comments about attempts made to injure the book and his credibility. A classic in the finest sense of the word, this book has been a cornerstone in the ever-building corpus of American naval history."--BOOK JACKET
