His own people by Booth Tarkington( Book )
2 editions published in 1907 in English and held by 391 libraries worldwide
The glass-domed palm-room of the Grand Continental Hotel Magnifique in Rome is of vasty heights and distances, filled with a mellow green light which filters down languidly through the upper foliage of tall palms, so that the two hundred people who may be refreshing or displaying themselves there at the tea-hour have something the look of under-water creatures playing upon the sea-bed. They appear, however, to be unaware of their condition; even the ladies, most like anemones of that gay assembly, do not seem to know it; and when the Hungarian band (crustacean-like in costume, and therefore well within the picture) has sheathed its flying tentacles and withdrawn by dim processes, the tea-drinkers all float out through the doors, instead of bubbling up and away through the filmy roof

Ballads and barrack-room ballads by Rudyard Kipling( Book )
1 edition published in 1899 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Barrack-Room Ballads (1892) brought Rudyard Kipling instant success. At the time, British men generally enlisted to escape dire poverty, and those who did were held in low regard by the Victorian public--until they were needed to fight. Because Kipling had great compassion for his country's soldiers, he used his poems to provide an insightful, sympatheic view of them even as he criticized the English empire for its treatment of its fighting men. Told in Cockney dialect, the works in this collection include Tommy, Danny Deever, Fuzzy-Wuzzy, Mandalay, and the immortal Gunga Din. --New American Library
