Most widely held works by Henry Adams
Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres by Henry Adams( Book )
134 editions published between 1904 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 4,922 libraries worldwide
From the Back Cover: Mont Saint Michel and Chartres is a record not of a literal journey but of a meditative journey across time and space into the medieval imagination. Using the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the two locales as a starting point, Adams breathes life into what others might see merely as monuments of a past civilization. With daring and inventive conceits, Adams looks at the ordinary people, places, and events in the context of the social conventions and systems of thought and belief of the thirteenth century, turning the study of history into a kind of theater. As Raymond Carney discusses in his introduction, Adam's freedom from the European traditions of study lends exuberance-and puckish wit-to his writings

Democracy; an American novel by Henry Adams( Book )
138 editions published between 1880 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 2,386 libraries worldwide
One of the best novels ever written about Washington, D.C. Since it was written well over a century ago [1880], I anticipated that it would feel dated. Instead, the novel feels incredibly fresh. From the smart and ambitious young widow taking the political establishment by storm to the idealistic young war veteran lawyer advising her to the scheming and aging senator to the out-of-his-depth president, all of the characters (while obviously drawn on real people of the day) are recognizable and fun. --Inga at Amazon.com

John Randolph, known as John Randolph of Roanoke, represented Virginia in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and once famously stated, I am an aristocrat. I love liberty; I hate equality." Ideal for history buffs, Henry Adams's biography of this prominent politician examines Randolph's tumultuous career and disdainfully covers his preference for Jeffersonian policies rather than the Federalist politics of Adams's own ancestors

The correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914 by Henry James( Book )
5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 604 libraries worldwide
Few writers have had such a significant impact on American literature in the twentieth century as have Henry James and Henry Adams. The influence of Adams' Education appears unmistakably in the work of writers as diverse as T.S. Eliot, Sherwood Anderson, Vachel Lindsay, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Eugene O'Neill, Nathanael West, Norman Mailer, and Thomas Pynchon. The list of writers influenced by James is virtually endless, ranging from Ezra Pound and Wallace Stevens to Robert Lowell, among poets, and from Ford Madox Ford and Edith Wharton to Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick, among fiction writers. The Correspondence of Henry James and Henry Adams, 1877-1914, edited and annotated by George Monteiro, collects the surviving correspondence between these two legendary figures, along with four letters from James to Adams' wife, Marian "Clover" Hooper Adams. James, Adams, and Mrs. Adams were close friends until her death in 1885, and the two men continued to visit and correspond until James's death. The letters in this volume reflect the strength and vitality of that friendship and of the intellectual exchanges that nourished it. Covering a thirty-eight-year period, these thirty-six letters constitute the known extant correspondence exchanged by the two Henrys. Monteiro has carefully and skillfully edited each letter in its entirety from the manuscript original. In addition to the letters, he includes a chronology, a calendar of unlocated letters between the two men, and a bibliography. His introduction to the collection traces James's relationship with his two New England friends, Henry and Clover, in rich detail. This essay makes a lively background to the letters and sets them in vivid context. This is a fascinating collection that reveals the patterns of an enduring friendship and the minds and personalities of the participants. It makes a valuable contribution to scholarship about James and Adams, as well as to our understanding of the social and intellectual worlds in which they lived
