The diary of Samuel Pepys : a new and complete transcription by Samuel Pepys( Book )
331 editions published between 1930 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,550 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."--Jacket

Cockney past and present: a short history of the dialect of London by William Matthews( Book )
36 editions published between 1938 and 2015 in English and held by 621 libraries worldwide
<P>Although Cockney can be considered to be one of the most important non-standard forms of English, there had been little to no scholarly attention on the dialect prior to William Matthews's 1938 volume <I>Cockney Past and Present</I>. Matthews traced the course of the speech of London from the sixteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth century by gathering information from many sources including plays, novels, music-hall songs, the comments of critics and the speech and recollections of living Cockneys. This book will be of interest to students of language and linguistics. </P>
