5 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 563 libraries worldwide
As the "last of the Romans and first of the Scholastics," Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius straddles two worlds. More than anyone else he both epitomizes the achievements of classical civilization and provides a bridge between Antiquity and the Middle Ages. No matter whether one focuses on Boehius's thought or his expression, one can hardly help but recognize both his innate worth and his value to the developing modern world. But because what he offers is so rich and varied, one can scarcely hope to make an accurate assessment of his impact on Western Culture

Annotation
A Connecticut yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain( Book )
3 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Mark Twain A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court Cracked on the head by a crowbar in nineteenth-century Connecticut, Hank Morgan wakes to find himself in King Arthur's England, facing a world whose idyllic surface masks fear, injustice, and ignorance. In this acclaimed tour de force, Mark Twain moves from broad comedy to biting social satire, from the pure joy of wild high jinks to deeply probing insights into the nature of man. Considered by H.L. Mencken to be 'the most bitter critic of American platitude and delusion'that ever lived, ' Twain enchants readers with a Camelot that strikes disturbingly contemporary notes. With an introduction by Leland Krauth And an afterword by Edmund Reiss
