Early twentieth-century American author Edith Wharton's 1928 novel about a group of seven step-siblings who strike up a relationship with a solitary bachelor on a yacht while hoping that their parents' reconciliation lasts.

Nick Lansing and Susy Branch are young, attractive, but impoverished New Yorkers. They are in love and decide to marry, but realise their chances of happiness are slim without the wealth and society that their more privileged friends take for granted. Nick and Susy agree to separate when either encounters a more eligible proposition. However, as they honeymoon in friends' lavish houses, from a villa on Lake Como to a Venetian palace, jealous passions and troubled consciences cause the idyll to crumble.

The different forms of flowers on plants of the same species by Charles Darwin( Book )
4 editions published between 1896 and 1897 in English and held by 456 libraries worldwide
After the publication of On the Origin of Species in 1859 Darwin became fascinated with the potential for botanical experiments to provide evidence for the process of evolution. First published in 1877, this volume is based on a series of papers concerning heterostylous plants (species which produce different types of flowers) originally published in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnaen Society in 1862. Linnaeus had divided the sexual relations of flowers into four groups, which Darwin uses as the structure for this volume. Darwin examines in detail plants which produce different flower forms, presenting his conclusions in terms of adaptive evolution and so providing the first functional interpretation of heterostyly. He demonstrates that these plants are adapted for cross-fertilisation, not self-fertilisation as was widely believed. The concepts which Darwin introduces in this volume continue to provide the basis for research into plant reproductive biology

The Marne by Edith Wharton( Book )
2 editions published in 1918 in English and held by 386 libraries worldwide
A privileged young American, Troy Belknap spent summers in France as a child and developed a love for the country and its people. His family was on their annual summer visit when WWI broke out. Distressed by the exodus of Americans fleeing the country, he wanted to aid the French against the German incursion, but he was too young to join the Foreign Legion. He went home to America but returned three years later and obtained a position as a Red Cross ambulance driver. He served during the Second Battle of the Marne in July, 1918. It was considered the beginning of the end of the war.  In many ways, the journey of Troy Belknap parallels the life of Wharton's friend, artist Ronald Simmons, to whom the work is dedicated and who died near the end of WWI. Simmons helped to organize the Comité des Étudiants Américans de L'École des Beaux-Arts which aided French students who had gone to the front, sending them clothes and gas masks. He and Wharton worked together from 1916-1917 to support convalescent homes for women and children at Groslay and Arromanches. The Marne is dedicated to the memory of Ronald Simmons, "who died for France August 12, 1918" three months before the end of the war

"No one can possibly realize better than the author of these vacation skits how crude and amateurish they are if judged from the standpoint of literature. If they have any merit, or their publication any excuse, it will be as illustrations of psychological principles. This book presents a series of stories and short essays written by Hall, some autobiographical, some fictional. They all, however, contain psychological relevance"--Preface.
