Three men in a boat by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
698 editions published between 1711 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 6,514 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."
Idle thoughts of an idle fellow by Jerome K Jerome( file )
220 editions published between 1880 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,999 libraries worldwide
Initially published in 1886 and dedicated to the writer's ally in idling--his pipe--this collection of entertaining essays established Jerome K. Jerome as an eminent English wit. "What readers ask nowadays in a book is that it should improve, instruct, and elevate. This book wouldn't elevate a cow. I cannot conscientiously recommend it for any useful purposes whatever. All I can suggest is that when you get tired of reading 'the best hundred books, ' you may take this up for half an hour. It will be a change." Here are his idle and amusing thoughts on all aspects of life--from love to poverty, vanity to ambition, babies to cats and dogs--and, of course, on the pleasures of spending one's time idling.-Amazon.com

In his dedication page to Stage-Land (published in 1889), Jerome K. Jerome writes: "To that highly respectable but unnecessarily retiring individual of whom we hear so much but see so little, the earnest student of the drama, this (comparatively) truthful little book is lovingly dedicated." He then proceeds to humorously, and often with scathing precision, examine those characters who inhabit the world of the stage, namely, such hilarious stereotypes as the Hero, the Comic Lovers, the Irishman, the Lawyer and most famously, and the Villain, who " always wears patent leather boots."
