Three men in a boat by Jerome K Jerome ( Book )
9 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Three Men in a Boat was meant to be a serious travel guide to the Thames, between Kingston and Oxford. Instead, it is one of the wittiest, funniest fictional jaunts down a river ever written. The three men are based on author Jerome and two of his friends. The dog "developed out of that area of inner consciousness which, in all Englishmen, contains an element of the dog."

Tobias Smollett by Jeremy Lewis ( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tobias Smollett's novels are funny, fast-moving, boisterous and coarse, the fictional equivalent of Hogarth's 'Rake's Progress' or a Rowlandson engraving; indeed Smollett is the most vigorous and entertaining of all the great eighteenth-century novelists. Despite enthusiastic advocacy from George Orwell and V.S. Pritchett, he is also the most neglected; in this new biography, the first for over fifty years, Jeremy Lewis sets out to put the record straight." "A Scot who lived for much of his life in Chelsea, a medical man who, like Dr. Johnson, became a central figure in London literary life, Smollett was barely fifty when he died, but had lived an enviably busy life. As a ship's surgeon, he took part in the disastrous siege of Cartagena, where the sailors dropped like flies from the fever and had to be fed to the sharks; as a Scotsman, he suffered prejudice of a kind that would later be endured by the Irish and West Indians; he was imprisoned for libel, founded and edited the contemporary equivalent of the TLS, did battle with John Wilkes, wore himself out with hack work, and made his name not just with Roderick Random and Humphrey Clinker, but with his magnificently splenetic and xenophobic Travels through France and Italy."--BOOK JACKET
