Most widely held works by Martin Gardner
The annotated Alice: Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll( Book )
122 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,981 libraries worldwide
This is the first and only edition of Lewis Carroll's two masterpieces, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, that contains the full text, together with all of the original Tenniel illustrations in their correct places, and that adds to this a full annotation running concurrently with the text for the easiest possible reference. Here, the result of many years of research by an expert, is a running commentary on all the jokes, games, puzzles, tricks, parodies, obscure references and almost endless curiosities with which Carroll filled his writings. With this information a modern reader can appreciate this great and subtle book in a way that would be impossible otherwise

The annotated ancient mariner. The rime of the ancient mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge( Book )
17 editions published between 1965 and 2003 in English and held by 536 libraries worldwide
"One of the most evocative, famous, and mysterious poems in the English language is undoubtedly Samuel Taylor Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. This seaman's story - full of symbols, strange occurrences, moral implications, and moral ambiguity - has fascinated scholars and lovers of verse. This edition is not only the most comprehensive and informative available but also the most elegant ever to appear." "Martin Gardner, well known for his Annotated Alice, has written an introduction, a brief biography of Coleridge, copious explanatory notes to the text that are designed to deepen the reader's understanding of the ballad, and a chapter summing up the major critical attitudes toward the poem in which he also discusses possible higher levels of meaning. He closes with questions concerning the poem's much-debated moral. Included also is the first published version of the Rime - significantly different from the final version - and a selected bibliography."--Jacket
