Stories of the magicians : Thalaba and the magicians of the Domdaniel ; Rustem and the Geni ; Kehama and his Soceries by Alfred John Church( Book )
2 editions published in 1887 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Southey's Oriental Romances, Thalaba the Destroyer and The Curse of Kehama, are, I suppose, almost wholly unknown to the younger generation of readers. It must be confessed that they are not commended by their metrical form; but they display great power of imagination, and convey an admirable moral. I have tried to tell these two stories in prose. I have added the Story of Rustem, greatly condensed, from Firdausi's Shah-Nameh, or Book of the Kings. I have availed myself of M. Jules Mohl's translation from the Persian, a popular edition of which, in seven octavo volumes, was published under the care of Madame Mohl in the years 1876-78. It was necessary to take some liberties with the story, for the chief of which I may plead the authority of Mr. Matthew Arnold, who, in his beautiful poem of "Sohrab and Rustem," represents the father as believing that the child born to him by his Tartar wife is a girl. In Firdausi's poem he knows that he has a son, but cannot believe that so young a child can be his stalwart antagonist
With the King at Oxford : a tale of the great rebellion by Alfred John Church( Book )

The story of the Odyssey by Alfred John Church( Book )
4 editions published between 1892 and 1905 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Homer's epic poem The Odyssey is one of the greatest and most influential literary works ever produced. However, its complex language and dense web of allusions and metaphors can be difficult for some readers to untangle. In The Story of the Odyssey, author Alfred John Church presents a more straightforward rendering of the events related in Homer's version. It's a great introduction to the poem for younger readers or those just starting to get acquainted with ancient Greek literature
