Three men in a boat; to say nothing of the dog! by Jerome K Jerome( Book )
1,104 editions published between 1711 and 2016 in 20 languages and held by 6,223 libraries worldwide
"Three Men in a Boat describes a comic expedition up the Thames to Oxford, depicted with irresistibly genial humour by 'J'. As the fashionable late-1880s steam-launches of river swells encounter the hired skiffs of city clerks, J̀' presents a medley of social vignettes, farcical incidents, descriptions of river fashions, and reflections on the river's history. His gently skewed vision of a world in which things continually turn out rather differently than expected is continued in Three Men on the Bummel. The now middle-aged friends embark on a cycling tour in the Black Forest, and the new bicycling craze affords Jerome the opportunity for a light-hearted scrutiny of German social customs at a time of increasing preoccupation with a country he loved. This double-volume edition places two of the most popular works in English literature in the light of Jerome's varied career, illuminating their social context and enduring appeal."--BOOK JACKET

Having survived the hazards of the great English waterway - plus the outrageous behaviour of that dog - in their debut novel, THREE MEN IN A BOAT, we re-join our heroes George, Harris and Jerome on a bicycle tour through the Black Forest. What is a bummel, you may ask? It is a journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started... As the trio encounters misadventures involving transport, the weather, and the usually tranquil locals, chaos and mayhem again reign supreme
